College Football Picks Against The Spread October 23-24


In case you are new to this, I will give you a little introduction to the madness. For the last six years, I have been picking every FBS vs. FBS game against the spread.

Believe me, it is not as easy as it sounds. My personal best was set last season at 55.01%. I was aiming for 57% this year, but as you can see, it is not going as planned.

I take the average of the odds from each Vegas casino and pick against that. I round all spreads to the nearest half point. There will be no pushing here. Save that for your next mosh pit.

I have been doing things a little differently this year. Instead of picking all of the games on Thursday, I have split them up to get more accurate spreads. Though as some of you have pointed out, this doesn’t do a whole lot of good for those that bet a late game with an early game on the same ticket. Due to that, I will have the Thursday-Friday games up Thursday afternoon, the noon kicks on Saturday up Friday evening, and the rest of the Saturday games up an hour before the noon eastern kickoffs on Saturday.

This is for entertainment purposes only. I cannot be responsible for you losing your dog, horse, car, or any other mode of transportation. I am a simple man. I cannot have that on my conscience.

If I do make a wager on any of these, I will not make it known here. I do provide a “lock” for each section of games. I have hit those at about 66% on the year, so even that is not an exact science.

Connecticut at (18)East Carolina(-27.5): ECU couldn’t cover this against SMU, so I’m taking UConn.

Miami(FL)(-2.5) at Virginia Tech: This line opened with Tech favored by 3, and has flipped the other way. Miami is improving, but this is a tough one on the road. Tails. I guess it’s Miami.

Troy at South Alabama(-13.5): I have to take the Jaguars here. Troy has been nothing short of terrible for the most part.

South Florida at Cincinnati(-10.5): I don’t like the half. I’m not sold on Cincy either, but I guess I have to take them at home.

BYU at Boise State(-6.5): I don’t really think BYU can do this will all of the injuries they have on both sides of the ball. I will take the Broncos.

(6)Oregon(-18.5) at California: Cal’s defense is terrible. I have to go with Oregon for my lock of the early games.

Stay tuned for the rest of my picks for the week.
