With the MAC ramping up their Tuesday night schedules, I will post the lines for the Tuesday-Friday games on Tuesday afternoon from here on. The Saturday picks will all be up by noon on Saturday.
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.
Akron(-3.5) at Buffalo: Nope, still not taking the Zips, especially on the road. Give me Buffalo for my lock of the early games.
Toledo at Northern Illinois(-5.5): I still don’t trust Toledo. Give me NIU.
Ball State at Massachusetts(-3.5): I hate the half, but the Cardinals have fallen a long ways since almost poaching Iowa in September. Give me UMass.
Kent State at Bowling Green(-13.5): I don’t like the half, and Kent hasn’t been as bad lately. That said, I can’t take the Flashes on the road. Give me BGSU.
East Carolina(-2.5) at Cincinnati: The magic is gone, and so is everything the Pirates were playing for. Give me Cincy.
Southern Mississippi at UTSA(-8.5): This line has doubled already, and is showing no signs of slowing down. Take it for under 10 if you can! Give me UTSA.
California at USC(-14.5): USC has struggled against strong passing teams all season, but Cal’s defense is awful. And they are on the road. I have to take USC, even against my better judgment.
Tulsa at Central Florida(-18.5): UCF has the defense to shut out Tulsa. Give me the Knights.
