NCAA Football Betting Predictions: Bowl Game Opening Line Report and Picks
by Jason Radowitz - 12/21/2020
At the start of the season, college football had 43 postseason bowls ready to go. Due to COVID, opt outs and different regulations in select states, we’ve seen more than a bunch cancelled. We’re now down to 28 bowl games, and we’ll see if that can hold up. With these cancellations, we’re getting bowl games featuring teams with two wins in 10 games, like South Carolina. It’s ridiculous. We’ll remember this season for sure.

by Jason Radowitz - 12/14/2020
Last Saturday, LSU, as a 24-point underdog, defeated Florida on the road with minimal scholarship players and mainly freshman and sophomores in the game. This all but concluded Florida’s hopes of playing in the College Football Playoff as they lost the turnover margin by three and threw a shoe on a third down stop that would’ve given the Gators back the ball in a tie ball game.

by Doug Upstone - 12/11/2020
It is the last big weekend of college football, and we head into the last four weeks of the NFL. All the betting lines are as sharp as they have been all season at betting sites, making our job that much harder. Regardless, that has not changed what is occurring in the marketplace and we found six line moves to cover for you, both in college and pro football.
NCAA Football Betting Predictions: Week 15 Opening Line Report and Picks
by Jason Radowitz - 12/7/2020
At the beginning of the week, Coastal Carolina was going to welcome Liberty home in a game that would help Coastal Carolina in the rankings had they won. Liberty had lost only one game, and that was to NC State, by a point. When Liberty had COVID issues, Coastal Carolina and BYU elected to face each other in the first game between two undefeated teams from different conferences this late in the year.

Things have since changed after last week. Northwestern lost to Michigan State. Their CFP hopes have diminished. Actually, the Big Ten’s hopes of playing in the CFP have diminished, thanks to the conference’s quarantine policy that doesn’t match-up with other conferences. If Ohio State misses one more game, they will not qualify for a CFP appearance. They would then give up their No. 4 spot to a team like Texas A&M or Florida.
NCAA Football Betting Predictions: Week 13 Opening Line Report and Picks
by Jason Radowitz - 11/24/2020
The first Top 25 reveal is set for Tuesday, November 24, to see which four teams are in line to play in the College Football Playoff. Of course, many things can change from then until the final rankings are out, but things are a bit difficult with leagues playing at different times and COVID affecting scheduling with postponements and cancellations.
NCAA Football Betting Predictions: Week 12 Opening Line Report and Picks
by Jason Radowitz - 11/16/2020
Things have been interesting in college football. Plenty of teams with higher expectations are not performing, specifically in Power 5 conferences, and the talk about firing head coaches has begun. Jim Harbaugh has coached Michigan to a 1-3 record this season. He’s currently on the hot seat. But that hasn’t even been the biggest storyline of the Big Ten this season. Penn State is currently 0-4 behind James Franklin.
College and NFL Football Biggest Line Moves for Nov. 14-15
by Doug Upstone - 11/13/2020
After a couple of solid performances, Florida State is back to playing lousy football again. The Seminoles have been drubbed by 32 points at Louisville and 24 to Pittsburgh since upsetting North Carolina. N.C. State has also fallen a couple of times recently, yet they lost their starting quarterback, Devin Leary, and are still adjusting. Those doing college football betting have chased the Wolfpack from -7 to -10.5, having zero trust in Florida State. The ‘Noles also have seen players depart in the last week for various reasons, which is an ominous sign. At the moment, N.C. State is still competing, and it seems FSU is checking out.
NCAA Football Betting Predictions: Week 11 Opening Line Report and Picks
by Jason Radowitz - 11/10/2020
With COVID protocols in place, nobody expected a celebration on a football field this season between students, fans, and players. However, Notre Dame, the fourth-ranked team in the nation at the time, defeated the number one overall team in the nation, Clemson, in double overtime, at home, warranting a celebration on the field between fans, players and staff who were mostly maskless.
NCAA Football Betting Predictions: Week 10 Opening Line Report and Picks
by Jason Radowitz - 11/2/2020
It’s been a long time since we’ve had three intriguing ranked match-ups on a single Saturday. The Big Ten will feature No. 13 Indiana against No. 22 Michigan. The SEC will showcase No. 8 Florida against No. 5 Georgia. But in the ACC, we’ll get to watch the No. 1 Clemson face off against No. 4 Notre Dame.

by Doug Upstone - 10/30/2020
That’s right, it’s that time of the week again to review all the latest line movement in football!

by Jason Radowitz - 10/26/2020
The first week of Big Ten football has concluded, and it was an exciting one. Last Friday, we watched Graham Mertz of Wisconsin, in his first collegiate start, dominate Illinois with five touchdowns going 20-of-21 for 248 yards passing. When Saturday rolled around, we had some insane upsets, including Rutgers defeating Michigan State on the road, Purdue beating Iowa without star receiver Rondale Moore and Head Coach Jeff Brohm.

by Jason Radowitz - 10/19/2020
The Big Ten is returning to action in college football. It only took until Week 8. The Pac 12 won’t be playing for a couple more weeks. Due to the Big Ten and Pac-12 opting into the season late, we’ve had some extremely weird AP rankings this season. In Week 7 alone, there were five ranked teams that lost, including North Carolina, who lost to Florida State, 31-28, as the fifth best team in the nation.

NCAA Football Betting Predictions: Week 7 Opening Line Report and Picks
by Jason Radowitz - 10/12/2020
We’ve made fun of the Big 12 for their high-scoring games. The Big 12 was always known for having no defense, while the SEC was the conference where you’d get the top defenses and low-scoring games. 2020 has been different. COVID has absolutely played a role in this as teams weren’t able to prepare as much as they would’ve liked due to different protocols.

Potential College Football Start Options During Covid-19 Pandemic
by Doug Upstone - 4/14/2020
As we wait for information about when all our favorite sports will resume, one sport is thinking WAY out of the box. At this time, we know very little about when and if the major sports will return. There is mostly speculation. And until there is more movement to understand when people can go back to work and how the entire coronavirus process shakes out, all anyone can do is make various contingency plans.
National Championship Game Picks for Clemson vs. LSU
by Trevor Whenham - 1/10/2020
The ownership of the nickname Tigers is on the line. Or at least it should be. The loser should have to go by the Kittens going forward. But sports aren't quite that cool. Having two teams named the Tigers side by side in this game is going to lead both to some confusion and to some truly horrible puns during the broadcast. But we can get past that because this is one heck of a showdown between teams.
