2020 SEASON RECORD: 79-56-1 (58.1%)
2021 SEASON RECORD: 0-0-0
Recap of the 2020 season: TGIS was HOTTT finishing with a nice 58% record. This year? We are going to be better. We will not miss a pick. We will not lose. We will not quit. Discipline! Discipline Discipline!
Discipline is especially important in Week 0 with only a five game slate. Good value exists on the board, but it is important to not get suckered into playing every game. Now I’ve made y’all wait long enough… after a whole offseason of studying up… HERE ARE THIS WEEK’S PICKS:
Week 0 Game of the Week (All Times CST)
Nebraska at Illinois (+7.5) – Saturday 1:00pm
Here are the facts: Illinois beat Nebraska last year in Lincoln 41-23. Illinois returns 22 super seniors. Illinois returns their starting quarterback, Brandon Peters. Nebraska’s best player transferred to Kentucky. Therefore, Illinois as a seven point home underdog is way too many points. This may even be a nice money line sprinkle because this game will be close
Pick: Nebraska 24-21
Top Pick(s) of the Week
Hawaii at UCLA (-17.5) UNDER 68.5 – Saturday 2:30pm
This game is kicking off at 9:30am local Hawaii time. Which means Hawaii will be sleepy and UCLA is going to come out fast. UCLA is excellent at running the ball and are poised to have a very good year. Hawaii’s run defense? Struggles.
This will be a short game and a UCLA blowout win. I also would expect UCLA to take the foot off the pedal with their game against LSU next week. So BOOK IT. UCLA and the under.
