College Football Picks (Today's Predictions, Tips, Parlays)
Big Ten Championship Picks: Michigan State vs. Ohio State Odds
by Trevor Whenham - 12/4/2013
When the Spartans and the Buckeyes meet on the field in Indianapolis, it will be a study in contrasts. The Buckeyes are where they are thanks largely to an impressive offense. Michigan State has a world-class defense. Ohio State is loaded with highly-touted recruits at every position. The Spartans have exactly one starter, Max Bullough, who was a four-star recruit, and they have no five-stars.
SEC Championship Picks: Auburn vs. Missouri Odds and Predictions
by Trevor Whenham - 12/4/2013
This game — the battle of the Tigers — is a perfect example of why college football is so great. Last year Auburn was 3-9 and a perfect 0-8 in SEC play. Missouri was only 5-7 in their first year in SEC play and only earned conference wins over lousy Kentucky and Tennessee squads. Missouri looked like they didn’t belong in their new conference, and Auburn barely looked like they belonged in FBS.
Free College Football Picks: Texas A&M at Missouri Odds
by Trevor Whenham - 11/29/2013
At the start of the year you might have looked at this game and imagined that it could have implications for a berth in the SEC Championship Game. Only the most imaginative would have guessed, though, that it would be the Tigers that were playing for their shot at immortality, while the Aggies are all but irrelevant. For Missouri it’s simple — win and they claim the SEC East and play the winner of the Iron Bowl in the SEC Championship next weekend. Lose and South Carolina earns the berth.
Free College Football Picks: Baylor at Oklahoma State Odds
by Trevor Whenham - 11/21/2013
For the second straight week, Baylor is playing in one of the two games we are previewing. That’s because for the second straight week their game is one of the two biggest being played when they face off at Oklahoma State. This week’s mega-showdown in the Big 12 makes last week’s game against Texas Tech look like an exhibition game.
Free College Football Picks: Baylor vs. Texas Tech Odds
by Trevor Whenham - 11/13/2013
Baylor certainly made a statement last time out. Despite their impressive 7-0 start, their critics were quick to point out that the teams they had dismantled were far from an impressive group — when West Virginia is the best team you have beaten, you haven’t really beaten anyone. Oklahoma was their first chance to prove that they were legitimate, and their 29-point win made it harder to be disrespectful of this team.
Free College Football Picks: LSU at Alabama Odds
by Trevor Whenham - 11/6/2013
The Tide are in a position that is not that familiar to them — they are facing what is essentially a must-win game. The last two years they have been able to lose a game in November and still bounce back to play in — and win — the National Championship Game. This year, though, the SEC isn’t as dominant as it has been, and one loss would be tough for Alabama to overcome unless Oregon, Florida State, Ohio State and Baylor all falter. Win and they are all but certain to get another title shot, though, so what they need to do is obvious.
Free College Football Picks: Michigan at Michigan State Odds
by Trevor Whenham - 10/30/2013
Michigan and Michigan State really don’t like each other. There has never been any love lost between the two, but in recent years the rivalry has intensified. They are playing for more than a win here. That is what makes college football so great.
Free College Football Picks: Texas Tech at Oklahoma Odds and Predictions
by Trevor Whenham - 10/24/2013
Before the season started the likely storyline for this game seemed clear. It seemed like we would quite likely see an undefeated team trying to stay that way against a feisty-but-flawed opponent. What few could possibly have imagined, though, is that the unbeaten squad would be Texas Tech or that Oklahoma would be reeling after a sound beating by the mess that is masquerading as Texas these days.
Free College Football Picks: Florida State at Clemson Odds
by Trevor Whenham - 10/17/2013
A lot of people are calling this the biggest game in ACC history. While that may be going a bit far, there is little doubt that when the Seminoles and the Tigers clash it will be the biggest game in the conference since 2005 when No. 5 Miami beat No. 3 Virginia Tech. Both teams faltered down the stretch after that game, so these two squads will have to be careful to avoid the same fate regardless of how this game turns out.
Free College Football Picks: Texas vs. Oklahoma Odds
by Trevor Whenham - 10/10/2013
Before the season started, I would have suggested that this game was important for Mack Brown’s future. Now things have changed. We all know how things are going to turn out there — it would require a major miracle for Brown to still be coaching this team next year. What this game will likely determine, though, is how he gets to leave. With a win here he stands a much better chance of being able to retire on his own terms and leave with his pride at least partly intact.
Free College Football Picks: Maryland at Florida State Odds and Predictions
by Trevor Whenham - 10/3/2013
The storyline for the Seminoles was supposed to be simple heading into the season. They had a laughable schedule, so all they had to do was take care of relatively straightforward slate of games until their Oct. 19 meeting with Clemson that seems all but certain to decide the ACC Atlantic Champion and for the winner to become the strong favorite to win the ACC. While the Seminoles have certainly done their part so far, there is a slightly larger hurdle than they expected leading into the bye week before that Clemson game — for the first time in recent memory Maryland is actually a decent team.
Free College Football Picks: Wisconsin at Ohio State Odds
by Trevor Whenham - 9/25/2013
The conference season is very young in the Big Ten, yet there is a very good chance that the winner of the Leaders Division of the conference will be decided in Columbus on Saturday night. These are by far the best teams in the weak division — especially with Penn State not eligible for the postseason. That adds an extra layer of intrigue to what has already become a competitive rivalry in recent years.
College Football Picks: Michigan State at Notre Dame Odds
by Trevor Whenham - 9/19/2013
This is a showdown between ranked teams, but it is hardly a high-powered showdown at this point. Notre Dame was beaten up by Michigan under the lights and then suffered through a hangover last week that saw them struggle against Purdue, of all teams. Michigan State has elite defensive statistics, but the Spartans have shown nothing remotely resembling a legitimate offense, and they are taking a big step up in class here.
College Football Picks: A Big Ten Betting Rundown
by Darin Zank - 9/19/2013
The Big Ten took some lumps last week, and the public took notice. Penn State lost at home to Central Florida, Nebraska got toasted at home by UCLA, Wisconsin botched a chance to win at Arizona State, and Michigan barely beat mighty Akron. But was the Big Ten's performance really all that bad? There were some successes.
College Football Picks: Louisville at Kentucky Odds and Predictions
by Trevor Whenham - 9/12/2013
I’m not particularly interested in this one in terms of outcome — Louisville is very well-positioned to win it, and I don’t anticipate an upset. Despite that, though, there is plenty of intrigue here. For starters, after beating up on Eastern Kentucky and Ohio, this is the biggest test yet for a Louisville team that has the look of a potential unbeaten squad. They have been wildly-impressive so far, but with this game we’ll get a better sense of whether they are built to go all the way.
College Football Picks: Notre Dame at Michigan Odds and Predictions
by Trevor Whenham - 9/6/2013
Notre Dame hasn’t won in Ann Arbor since 2005. That streak could extend indefinitely if they don’t pull off a win here. Thanks to the pseudo-move of the Irish to the ACC, this is the last time these teams will play in the Big House for the foreseeable future. It’s the end of a great rivalry, and it makes the stakes in this one even higher than normal.

I will provide you a weekly preview early each week to try and point out potential trap games, do a Heisman update and give perspective on any big news or results from the previous weekend.

Washington State at Auburn Picks and Week 1 College Football Odds
by Dave Schwab - 7/17/2013
The Washington State Cougars take a trip east to open their 2013 campaign with a matchup against the Auburn Tigers on Saturday, Aug.31, at Jordan-Hare Stadium. Kick off time for this Pac-12/SEC clash has yet to be set. The 2012 season did not necessarily go as planned for Mike Leach in his first year as the Cougars head coach.
Florida Atlantic at Miami Picks and Week 1 College Football Odds
by Dave Schwab - 7/16/2013
State bragging rights will be on the line to start the 2013 college football season when the Florida Atlantic Owls and the Miami Hurricanes clash at Sun Life Stadium on Friday, Aug. 30.

2013-14 Texas A&M Predictions and College Football Betting Odds
by Alan Matthews - 5/22/2013
If you had Johnny Manziel winning the Heisman Trophy last season as a redshirt freshman and Texas A&M winning 11 games -- including a shocking upset of eventual National Champion Alabama -- well, I'd like your take on what the next powerball winning numbers will be.
