After trying to get flexible with this the past few weeks, I have come to the conclusion that this is not the best way to give out my picks with all of the cancellations and what not. I have created a google spreadsheet with all of my picks that I am willing to share with any of my readers. Please email me at if you would like FREE access to that list. thanks for reading and I will be back next year (god willing COVID won’t be)


LAST WEEK: 1-4 (20%) SEASON: 3-12 (20%)

This season can’t get much worse for me…I can hardly take myself seriously enough to write game descriptions. I may or may not be dealing with a case of the gambling yips but we soldier on nonetheless. Fade at your own discretion.

Miami at Virginia Tech (-1.5)

USC at Arizona (+14.5)

Arkansas (+17.5) at Florida

Northwestern (-2.5) at Purdue

Oregon State (+14.5) at Washington
