SEC Pick of the Week – Week Four

Time certainly does fly when you’re having fun. It’s hard to believe that we’re almost to the quarter pole of the 2016 college football season already isn’t it? Anyway, thanks to the South Carolina Gamecocks’ 20-15 victory over the East Carolina Pirates and the very interesting no call on the two-point conversion – thank you, sideline official! – that allowed for that final score to...

West Coast Bias – Week 4 Plays

366 Purdue -4 – Reno hits the road again to face a rested and ready Boilers squad that has had two weeks to prepare for the heavy rushing attack of the Wolfpack. We normally like to side with the better ground game here, but the Boilers have the best offense in this game and should be able to clean up the five turnovers they had two weeks ago against Cincy and get some points on the board against Reno. HC Polian has...

Betting Big: Big 12 Week 4 preview

Betting Big: Big 12 Week 4 preview Oklahoma State @ Baylor (-8, O/U 76) There’s always a bit of trepidation in Baylor’s first Big 12 game of the season.  Baylor will generally have spent three weeks laying into some of the very worst opponents that the FCS and FBS have to offer, leaving smoldering craters where fully intact defenses used to be, and there’s excitement at seeing them take on real competition-...

2016 Big Ten Football Pick of the Week – Week # 4...

2016 Big Ten Football Pick of the Week – Week # 4       Wisconsin at Michigan State (-5.5) – Noon on BTN Very few people pegged this as a matchup of borderline top ten teams (Wisconsin is currently 11th) when the season began. However, after three weeks of action, the Wisconsin Badgers have an upset of LSU and sit at 3-0 while the Michigan State Spartans sit at 2-0 with a win at Notre Dame. The Spartans were...

Betting Big: Big 12 Week 3 Preview

Pitt Panthers @ Oklahoma State Cowboys (-4 1/2, O/U 60 1/2) Last week was an absolute heartbreaker for the Cowboys, but even taking away the incorrect officiating and the mildly miraculous conversion of the last play of the game, it was not a good effort from the Cowboys last week.  The Chippewas repeatedly stuffed the Cowboys on the run, carved up the OSU secondary and sacked OSU QB Mason Rudolph four times.  It...

2016 SEC Pick of the Week – Week Three

Well now, not a bad start to the 2016 college football season if I do say so myself. With Tennessee’s 45-24 victory over Virginia Tech at the “Battle of Bristol” we’re now 2-0 to start the year in our SEC Pick of the Week segment here at The Saturday Edge. As if you doubted me… Maybe you did, maybe you didn’t. Either way, it doesn’t matter. We’ll just head into week three...

2016 Big Ten Football Pick of the Week – Week # 3...

2016 Big Ten Football Pick of the Week – Week # 3       Pick of the Week Colorado at Michigan (-20.5) – Saturday at 3:30 The once mighty Colorado Buffaloes have not won more than four games in a season since 2010 and they haven’t been to a bowl game since 2007. However, things may be looking up as the Buffs have opened the 2016 season with a pair of blowout victories over Colorado State (44-7) and Idaho State...

2016 Big Ten Football Pick of the Week – Week # 2...

2016 Big Ten Football Pick of the Week – Week # 2       Pick of the Week Penn State at Pittsburgh (-5) – Saturday at Noon Pittsburgh and Penn State have met 96 times in the rich history of this rivalry. However, the two teams haven’t met in 16 seasons. That hiatus will come to an end this Saturday when they meet at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. After last season’s stunning loss to in-state rival...

2016 Big Ten Football Pick of the Week – Week # 1...

2016 Big Ten Football Pick of the Week – Week # 1       Pick of the Week LSU (-10) at Wisconsin (at Lambeau Field) – Saturday at 3:30 Let me start by saying, kudos to both of these schools, particularly LSU for making a rare trip north, for scheduling this contest. Seeing these two do battle at the historic and venerable Lambeau Field should be a treat. Unfortunately for Badger fans, I think the idea of the...

SabertStxVii – 2016 Valspar Championship

Even with a pretty acurate prediction of how the tourny was going to play out, I couldn’t bring us a winning week. As I mentioned in the article last week… Overall, I’m going to keep the futures pretty light. Unfortunately, I do like Bubba and Adam Scott. I think this course fits Bubba and he took last week off so he should be ready this week. His course history here is great. Unfortunately he is 10/1. Not enough...
