2017 Free CFB Picks

Free College Football Pick December 9th Army vs Navy Total 46 It would make logical sense to bet the under in this game, knowing that the clock always runs quickly for Army vs Navy. No one has scored more than 34 points in this series since 2007, and the last 10 meetings have all featured 48 points or fewer on the scoreboard. Army has averaged 31.2 points per game this year, so we're going to take Over 46. Loser 

Free College Football Pick December 2nd UMass at FIU - 1 The Minutemen have won four of five, giving them four wins in a season for the first time since they joined the FBS. Florida International started 6-2 for the best start in school history but have since dropped two of three. The Golden Panthers may have mailed things in as they prepare for a potential bowl bid. They most likely will protect against injuries going into the bowl game. For Massachusetts, the premise of a fifth win is their bowl game. Look for the Minutemen to ride the momentum and get the win on the road and go out with a musket blast of points. Take: UMass Loser 

Free College Football Pick November 24th Northern Illinois -2.5 at Central Michigan These two teams are fairly closely matched, but I just think the Huskies are a little bit better, and I don’t think home field advantage is enough to make me think the Chippewas will win. Take Northern Illinois -2.5 Loser 

Free College Football Pick November 11th Wake Forest at Syracuse - 59 The Demon Deacons had a good showing against the Irish ion the road, especially their offense which put up over 500 yards of total offense in the game. They really found their offensive groove in that game and I look for it to continue here against a Syracuse defense that has not been all that bad this year. The Wake offense has averaged 34.3 ppg over their last three games, but their defense has really struggled of late as they have allowed 39.3 ppg over the same stretch and they have allowed 28.6 ppg on the road. The Syracuse Orange have averaged 33,6 ppg at home and should be able to put up plenty on this struggling defense. I look for this one to go Over the total. Take: WF/SU Over 59 Winner 

Free College Football Pick November 4th Wake Forest at Notre Dame - 56 The Wake Forest defense is a stout unit. We do expect the Irish to score but we also believe the WF can control them and keep this a low scoring game. This is a tough spot for the Irish after being place in the top four this week. Wake Forest will be fired up to show they can play in a big game atmosphere. Take: N Dame/ W Forest Under 56 Loser 

Free College Football Pick October 28th Washington St at Arizona + 2 The Arizona defense has been much-improved, and its offense with Tate under center isn't missing much in the way of beats at the moment. For as good as Washington State is and for as much as it needs this game to save some face for the rest of the Pac-12, we don't feel good about this one. Going on the road and playing against an improving team that is hungry avenge last season's 62-point shellacking on the road isn't a good sign. Go with the Wildcats to pull off this upset and add further misery to the rest of the conference. Take: Arizona + 2 Winner 

Free College Football Pick October 14th Oregon at Stanford - 10 If Costello takes over under center, he really makes Stanford's passing game a little more dynamic and Stanford could be a much better offensive team. Based on Costello at the helm, we will back the Cardinal to cover this ten point spread. Take: Stanford -10 Winner 

Free College Football Pick October 7th Marshall at UNC Charlotte +15 Marshall QB Chase Litton was tremendous last week, completing 21 of 34 passes for 233 yards and four touchdowns. The junior QB is poised for a big season, collecting 1014 passing yards with a 8:3 TD to INT ratio through four games. The Marshall offense has displayed solid depth in their receiving core, now featuring three players with at least 180 receiving yards after four games, and they will not be easy to beat in C-USA play. The Marshall defense was terrific in the win last week, holding the Bearcats to only 349 total yards and a 4 for 14 mark on third downs. Their defense has played well in each game with the exception of their 37-20 road loss to N.C. State in week two. Note NC State just knocked off Louisville. The Charlotte 49ers watched a 26-7 lead evaporate in their 30-29 road loss to FIU in their conference opener last weekend, and now sit at 0-5 on the year. Hasaan Klugh was solid in the loss, completing 16 of 28 passes for 155 yards with one touchdown, and he added 107 rushing yards with three rushing touchdowns. The junior QB has been shaky in the air, registering 651 passing yards with a weak 5:7 TD to INT ratio. The 49ers defense could not hold on to their 26-7 lead after their offense finally showed some life, allowing a total of 475 total yards, and could not make any big stops down the stretch. They struggled to stop the run again which has been an issue all season. I am taking the hot handed Litton and Marshall over Klugh and Charlotte in this matchup. It won't be easy because Marshall gives up a lot of air yards but Klugh won't keep packe with Litton. Take: Marshall -15 Loser 

Free College Football Pick September 23 San Diego State at Air Force The San Diego St. Aztecs want to build off their big win over Stanford and stay in the hunt for the Group of Five’s New Year’s Six bowl slot. SDSU is coming off a brilliant performance against the Cardinal, coming through with a great passing day from Christian Chapman – hitting 21-of-29 passes for 187 yards and a score – while Rashaad Penny continues to be among the nation’s best running backs. 32 carries, 175 yards, one touchdown. Get ready, Air Force. But the Falcons are strong enough to pull off the upset – even if the Michigan game didn’t show it. The Wolverines had a hard time putting the game away thanks to a plucky Falcon defense that held tough many times in the red zone. The field goal battle will be even, and both defenses will have their share of wins, and we predict the defenses will dominate in this game. We don't think Chapman will have nearly as good as a game in what can be an unfriendly environment in many ways. This is a tough matchup but the Aztecs can throw the ball with Chapman, whereas the Falcons throw very little with QB Arion Worthman. Expect both ground games to chew up the clock and we like the Under better than a tough side play. Take: Under 48.5 and don't wait! Winner 

Free College Football Pick September 16th Kansas St. at Vanderbilt Kansas State was amazing in its first two games of the season, hanging up 55 on the board against Central Arkansas and Charlotte? KSU QB Jesse Ertz has been incredible. So far this season, he’s been devastating, averaging almost 14 yards per throw hitting 70% of his passes with four scores and no picks. This is an air-tight team led by a veteran QB who knows what he’s doing. The Wildcats are built to win a road game like this. Vanderbilt came up with a gem to kick things off against a Middle Tennessee squad that beat Syracuse last week. But Alabama A&M was hardly a test. Vanderbilt’s defense has been stifling, hasn’t allowed a thing, especially on third downs. Vandy leads the country in third down D, giving up two – shutting out Middle Tennessee in the opener. But the defensive production was expected. Enter Kyle Shurmur, who started to rise up as a solid quarterback last year, and so far this season has been nothing short of sensational hitting 76% of his throws for 498 yards and seven scores with no picks. The Kansas State secondary hasn’t been tested yet. It will be this week. So in a nutshell, Kansas State has the great O, and can play more than a little D. Vanderbilt has the amazing D, and it can rise up and rock on O. So how to pick this tough matchup? Well, Kansas State dominates in the return game, leading the nation in turnover margin. This selection is based on the Wildcats doing a wee bit more on special teams, with a few big returns and field position being just enough to get out in a really, really good, must watch TV, tough battle. Get similar previews and predictions in our Gridiron Gold Sheet Best Bets newseltter. Last week to take advantage of the special below. Hook up with us now. Take: Kansas State - 3 Winner 

Free College Football Pick Sept 9th Free Pick Fresno State vs. Alabama - 44 As tempting as it has to be to assume that the Crimson Tide are going to cover every number that is sent their way, bettors are getting smarter and realizing that Alabama flat out doesn't care about winning games by six touchdowns.We can't lay this many points, even with the best team in America. We expect Saban to be in a good mood after thumping FSU. A mercy back door score maybe? Take: Fresno State +44 Winner 

Free College Football Pick Sept 1st Free PickBall State vs. Illinois Illinois started at -8.5 and has come down to -7 in spite of the fact that it is playing against a very young side that is going to have a lot of growing up to do over the course of this season and doesn't have any real expectations of reaching a bowl game. Neu, though, is going to have to teach his team how to win close games. We don't suspect this is going to be a victory that the Cardinals can pull out, but we love the line movement in this one. Ball State is certainly the right side, and it's going to keep this game competitive against a team that flat out doesn't have a quarterback. TAKE: BALL ST + 7 Winner 

2017 Free NFL Picks

Free NFL Football Pick December 24th Buffalo at New England - 13 @ 5DM The Bills have held New England to a total of 29 points in the last three meetings here in Foxboro, and we think they're playing well enough offensively to get under the number. Even though the Patriots will win at home, we suspect the Bills will find ways to keep this game relatively close. TAKE: Buffalo + 13 @ 5DM Winner

Free NFL Football Pick December 17th NY Jets at New Orleans Saints -17 & 47 I Our gut is telling us to take the points, as hard as that's going to be to do in the end. The Jets are getting 17, and we have to imagine they're going to have a much better offensive showing than what we saw last week in Denver. The Saints will win this game to keep control of the NFC South, but it won't be as easy as it should be and a backdoor cover is always a possibility in these types of games. Take: Jets + 17 Winner

Free NFL Football Pick December 10th Tennessee at Arizona +3.5 Adrian Peterson doesn't care whether his team is in contention for the playoffs or not. This is a man who wants to rack up as many stats as he can and wants to prove that he is worth a full-time job next season in Arizona or elsewhere. We're going to assume that Peterson is going to be on the field, and if that's the case, we're going to take the points. Winner

Free NFL Football Pick December 3rd Minnesota at Atlanta - 3 Atlanta is utilizing many different weapons on offense. Mohamed Sanu had eight catches for 64 yards in the win over the Buccaneers and he also threw a 51-yard touchdown pass to Jones. Sanu has 45 receptions for 452 yards and four scores this season. Atlanta also rushed for 148 yards and two touchdowns (both by Tevin Coleman) despite playing without Devonta Freeman in Week 12. Minnesota is 2-6 ATS in its last eight on grass. The Falcons are 5-1 ATS in their last six against the NFC, 13-6 ATS in their last 19 following a win, 4-1 ATS in their last five after scoring more than 30 points in their previous outing, and 5-1 ATS in their last six in December. Don’t be surprised if those trends continue. Take: Atlanta - 3 Loser

Free NFL Football Pick November 26th Jacksonville at Arizona - 39 The Cardinals offense ranks near the bottom of the NFL and they will have a very difficult time moving the ball in this contest. Jacksonville has allowed seven or fewer points in three out of their last four games, and they should easily contain the Cardinals offense. Also, while the Jaguars should have success offensively, Arizona does have some strong pieces on defense and the under has been a very common trend for them. Take: JAC/ARZ Under 39 Winner

Free NFL Football Pick November 12th Dallas at Atlanta - 50 Atlanta’s offense has taken the biggest step back, but the defense is also struggling. Vic Beasley Jr. led the NFL in sacks last season. He and several others have been injured at times this year, which is part of the reason why the Falcons are 25th in the league in total defense allowing 371.2 yards per game. They will have to get pressure on Prescott, who is the midst of another outstanding season. The over is 4-1 in the Cowboys’ last five overall, 4-0 in their last four against the NFC, and 6-1 in their last seven in Week 10. It is also 19-7-1 in the Falcons’ last 27 overall, 12-2 in their last 14 at home, 14-3-1 in their last 18 against the NFC, 13-3-1 in their last 17 after passing for more than 250 yards in their previous outing, and 8-3 in their last 11 against winning opponents. Additionally, the over is 4-1 in the last five meetings between the two teams. Look for this one to go over the total. Take: DAL/ATL Over 50 Winner

Free NFL Football Pick November 5th The end result of this game is all going to come down to the matchup between the Titans hogs up front and the Ravens front seven defensively. Baltimore has been rock solid defending the pass in allowing just under 185 yards per game ( No. 5 ). This pick gains value if Joe Flacco can't go and Mallet takes over for the Ravens. Take: Ravens/Titans Under 43 Winner

Free NFL Pick October 28th Houston at Seattle 45 In Deshaun and Russell Wilson I trust, and I’m going back them in this super matchup to ring the bell often. Take: Over 45 Winner

Free NFL Pick October 15th San Diego at Oakand 50 The Chargers have come away with seven out of their last 11 away games going over the total. The Raiders last 11 out of their last 13 home games went over the total. Take: Chargers/Raiders Over 50 Loser

Free NFL Pick October 8th Tennessee -3 at Miami 44 This game has a whole lot of question marks. Is Mariota going to play and if so how effective will he be. Is Jay Cutler going to be Jay Cutler again. Is the weather front going to effect the game and make it difficult to move the ball. Well, both teams will have difficulty moving the ball regarless of weather or not. Plus Miami off a very long swim over the pond. Take the under. Take: Titans/Fish Under 44 Winner

Free NFL Pick October 1st Pittsburgh -3 at Baltimore 45 This rivalry has given fans of defene everything they want and more. Three of the last four meetings have played to low scorers with an average of 43 points put on the board. I honestly have no idea what to expect from a side perspective. It can go either way. But with both teams coming off terrible defensive showings, I’ll be wagering on this rivalry once again being hard fought with points tough to come by. Take: Under 45 Winner

Free NFL Pick September 24th Baltimore at Jacksonville 40 These franchises have locked horns the last three seasons with Baltimore winning two of the three matchups. That said, they failed to cover each contest and last year’s 19-17 win in Jacksonville was won in the closing minute. I’m not sold on the Ravens until the offense proves it can actually contribute and the team’s success doesn’t ultimately hinge on the defense. The offensive line’s loss of Marshal Yanda will be felt in a big way in this tilt, and I fully expect Jacksonville to take advantage of that weakness and keep this game low scoring and close as in past years. Take: Under 40 Winner

Free NFL Pick September 10th Cleveland at Baltimore -9 & 39.5 Not overthinking this one at all. Cleveland has lost eight of its last 10 matchups with the Ravens and only managed four covers in those tilts. It’s lost and failed to cover the last three times these division rivals crossed paths, and lost those games by an average of 10 points per game. Kizer is going to have his hands full trying to dissect Baltimore’s defense, and he likely won’t get much of any relief from his ground game which struggled opening holes for Isaiah Crowell against the Steelers. But, This is the 2017 edition of the Browns that have a better squad all around. They hung with the Steelers and held them down to 3 TD's in a very respectable loss but cover. Baltimore snuffed out an over rated Bengals squad last week and Joe Flacco still has a lot of rust to shed off before the Ravens open up their offense. So the line is set right with the Ravens -9, but what's more appealing is the total on this game. With two defenses playing really good football right now, we gotta go with the tick as the Brownies play a similar defensive game as last week. Get similar previews and predictions in our Gridiron Gold Sheet Best Bets newseltter. Last week to take advantage of the special below. Hook up with us now. Take: Under 39.5 Loser

Pittsburgh at Cleveland 47 The Cleveland defense has looked very good in preseason. OK I know, it's just preseason. But just picture the first game of the season between these two in Cleveland. A rabid dog pound and avid fans looking to steal one from the hated Steelers. This could very easily get out of hand early when the Steelers try to physically bully the Browns. I do think that this one will fall UNDER the 47-point total. Let’s go with the tick to get the cash. Take: Under 47 Winner

Free NFL Picks Week 2 Preseason The Raiders are going to get some points on the board in all likelihood before Carr departs, but these two offenses aren't all that great, particularly once you take Carr out of the equation. Del Rio clearly just wants to see what his reserves can do, and McVay knows that he isn't getting all that much out of Mannion and Orlovsky once he's done looking at Goff for the night. The end result should be a game that plays tight and low scoring. Take: Under 41 Loser

Free NFL Pick August 13th Detroit at Indianapolis - Pk The Lions have Matthew Stafford at quarterback but he is not expected to play long, so they have to hope that Jake Rudock and Brad Kaaya are up to the job. The Colts have a solid backup to Luck in Tolzien but in the first preseason game it seems unlikely that Tolzien will play long. That means a lot of Stephen Morris and Phillip Walker. Take: Detroit Winner

Free NFL Pick August 11th Pittsburgh at NY Giants - 3 Everyone knows that the Steelers care less about preseason wins. But the Steelers could have the edge in terms of the quarterback rotation, as they have two proven options in Ben Roethlisberger and Landry Jones, while the Giants only have one in Eli Manning. The Steelers also have Joshua Dobbs and Bart Houston, while the Giants have Geno Smith, Josh Johnson and Davis Webb. If you call the matchup between Roethlisberger and Manning a push then Jones has the edge against Smith and in the second half I think Dobbs can hold his own for the Steelers. I'll go against public opinion and the line move. Take the points & the Stillers. Take: Pittsburgh + 5 Winner

Free NFL Pick August 9th Houston at Carolina - Pk This should be a good one as the Panthers opened as favorites but the line has plunged to a pickem right now.The Texans want to see rookie Deshaun Watson to play well. Savage will probably get 1.5 quarters and Watson will probably get 1.5 quarters. If Watson plays well then Houston has a good chance to win this game outright.Carolina probably won’t play their top two quarterbacks, Newton and Anderson more than a few series each. That mean it is Watson vs. Webb and Gilbert. The third string quarterback for Houston is Brandon Weeden and while he is not a good quarterback, at least he does have experience.We think there is enough QB backup talent to surprise the books with a higher scoring game than anticipated.
Take: Total Over 36.5 Winner

Free NFL Pick July 31st Dallas vs Arizona - Pk The Cowboys don’t figure to play Dak Prescott long so it will be Kellen Moore and Cooper Rush who see most of the playing time. The Cowboys did sign Luke McCown who could compete for the third spot with Rush but McCown may not have had enough time in camp to be ready for Thursday night. McCown spent the last four years with the Saints. The indication out of Cardinals camp is that Gabbert is going to push Stanton for the backup quarterback job. Gabbert gets a lot of grief for being a poor quarterback, but he has played on some rotten teams in Jacksonville and San Francisco. He has looked really good in camp for the Cardinals and has been effectively moving the offense up and down the field. It is always somewhat of a crapshoot with NFL preseason games. Oddsmakers usually put the line somewhere around a field goal or less. The Cardinals look to have the edge at quarterback with Stanton and Gabbert but the cowboys are excited to be playing for Jerry Jones as he will be honored as a hall of fame entrant. The first game of the season is often times low scoring but both the Cowboys and Cardinals have potent offenses, so I will also play the Cowboy and over the total.
Take: Dallas - Pk & Over 36 Winner + Winner
