Back again this week for another round of NFL and NCAA football picks. The books tightened up this past weekend after getting hammered the week before making it a so-so week for bettors. Then this week the slate is less than stellar, especially in the college games. However, there are always games that can be won and money to be made. 82-60-4 (.562) on the year on picks making an appearance here. Let’s keep it up!
Ohio State v. Maryland 12 pm: Over 58
The Buckeyes are still in the mix for a College Football Playoff spot, and I expect them to come out this week and make a statement. This Maryland team has been through a lot and came out last week and had a hard fought game against Indiana. They have little left in the tank. Buckeyes in a blowout.
Pittsburgh v. Wake Forest 12pm: Pitt -6.5
This Pittsburgh team is vying for a spot in the ACC championship game, hoping for a chance to upset Clemson. The Panthers are going to be motivated by that and I expect them to go on the road and walk away with a win. Wake maybe getting some love for their upset win over NC State last week. Sell high on Wake and take Pitt minus the points.
NC State v. Louisville 12:20 pm: NC State -17 and Over 63
Risky play here taking a road team that is laying 17 points. On the other hand this Louisville team is in shambles. After giving up a combine 187 points in their last 3 games coach Bobby Petrino was let go. These Cardinals players do not care right now. State wins in a blowout.
Kansas v. Oklahoma 7:30 pm: Over 69
Oklahoma is looking to stay in the mix for a playoff spot, and while Kansas as played better this year than usual they still are not a very good team. Oklahoma may look to make a statement here, a close game with Kansas does not help the resume. However, the Sooners D has been pretty porous recently. I expect Kansas to get a couple of scores here and push the total over.
Cincinnati v. UCF 8pm: UCF -7
This game is a chance for UCF to show the nation why they deserve to be considered for the playoff. The nation’s longest winning streak and Gameday in town. The Golden Knights will be ready to go in this one. Also just a theory here, could the committee have just gave Cincy a ranking so that the prime-time game this weekend was between ranked teams? Who knows… UCF with the double digit win.
Other NCAA Week 12 Bets
FIU v. UNCC 2:20 pm: FIU -6

Tech v. Southern Miss. 3:30 pm: Over 47
SDSU v. Fresno St. 10:30 pm: SDSU +13.5
NFL Week 11 Best Bets
Titans v. Colts 1pm: Titans +1
This Titans team has played well the last 2 weeks, which includes blowing out the Patriots. Mariota has played extremely well in those wins. If he can play like that again, along with this Titans defense, they should walk away with a win here.
Bucs. v. Giants 1pm: Bucs +1.5
This bet is more about not trusting the Giants than liking the Bucs. Giants getting some love after a win on Monday night so let’s take the other side. Bucs win on the road.
Cowboy v. Falcons 1pm: Falcons -3
Very suspicious line here. Cowboys coming off a win against Philly while Atlanta lost to the Browns. Fishy line so I am going with it. Falcons cover at home.
Vikings v. Bears 8:20: Vikings +3
Division rivalry game in the elements of Chicago during November. I like getting a good Vikings team with points.
