Jimmyshivers Week 3 ACC Thread

Jimmyshivers Week 3 ACC Thread   Aside from Virginia Tech earning a shocking W in Columbus, it was not a huge week nationally for the ACC. Sometimes it’s best in the early weeks just to stay out of the spotlight (Big Ten!) and grind out results.  That’s exactly what the rest of the league did in Week 2, with all 11 ACC teams who played a non-conference game earning a Win. On the gambling front, it was also a solid week...

For your consideration: Week # 3

Rarely will I put a lot of emphasis on one player when deciding which game to wager on, but if you haven’t heard about the 6’2, 218 pound senior QB out of East Carolina, you soon will.  His name is Shane Carden and this kid can spin it. Last year he had one of the best seasons of any quarterback, throwing for more than 4000 yards and completing more than 70 percent of his passes, ranking him third in the nation. And if those...

For your consideration: Week # 2

There’s an old sports betting rule, “it’s not who you play, but when you play.”  The Wildcats must travel to Ames, IA to take on the Cyclones of Iowa State, before going back home to play in one of the most anticipated match-ups this season vs the Auburn Tigers.  KSU will need to keep their heads in the game and not look past, what seems to be a below average Iowa State football team.   The Cyclones were humiliated at home...

Jimmyshivers Week 2 ACC Football Picks

A really nice start to the season last week, with a 5-1 record on our ACC selections for the opening week.  It was bittersweet that the only loss was on NC State, which also happened to be the game that I was at.  But at least the home team won! I waited until Friday this week to post my card as it honestly is an ugly ACC slate of games.  Many of the league teams are playing FCS opponents, and while all of those are not...

College Football Week 2: Barking Dogs

Week 2 One of the biggest challenges I find in the second week of college football season is not falling victim to making overreactions based on what we see in the first week. I am not going to dive too far into statistics this week given the small sample size, but rather provide analysis from what I saw in Week 1. As always, you can follow me on Twitter @Smithers513. Good luck! Georgia Tech at Tulane +10 Although Tulane...

For your consideration: Week # 1

We have one day of college football behind us and already we have seen upsets.  Forget point spreads, we’re talking outright winners who were 7 to 10 point dogs.  The average bettor sometimes get caught up in information from media and friends and over thinks it.  I believe this to be such with Washington vs Hawaii.  Here might be a few reasons why:   Their prepared!  They’ve had all summer long to get ready…right? I’m...

Jimmyshivers Week 1 ACC Football Thread

Hello everyone & welcome back for another exciting (and likely incredibly confusing) season of ACC Football.  In this year’s game of ACC roulette, we see the conference lose original member Maryland but add Louisville.  Adding to the confusion is the partial addition of Notre Dame, who will only play 5 ACC games a year for the foreseeable future.  If any conference could get away with adding half a team, it had to...
