Best Bets for NFL Week 13

After a much needed "bye," we're back and ready to turn the tide with some profitable picks. Speaking of byes, is it me or does this season seem abnormally long? With a 17th regular season game added, it is actually longer. But it's still hard to believe that we have...

Best Bets for NFL Week 11

The only thing I got right in last week's picks piece was reminding folks, "If it looks too good to be true, it probably is." Starting with a bad beat (the Titans winning, but allowing a comeback and failing to cover the spread by a half point), I lost all three of my...

How do you respond to a bet you lost? Do you just chalk it up in the loss column and move on? Or do you figure out why you were wrong and try to learn from it? For example, last week I picked the Bengals as part of a NFL 2-team teaser. What happens? Not only do they...

A Rant about the College Football Playoff

A Rant about the College Football Playoff

It is here. It is blasphemy. I am upset. I don’t know why I’ve waited so long for the College Football Playoff Rankings to come out, thinking I would be pleasantly surprised by the findings. Why did I forget that the committee which makes these rankings prioritize...

Where the College Football Playoff stands after Week 7

College football is genuinely getting exhausting. I have never seen a Top-5 move around so much more than this season and we are only through seven weeks. I am not sure what the deal is. Maybe there is just too much young talent on power teams like Clemson, Alabama,...
