OVERALL RECORD: 171-136-3 (55.7%)
2022 SEASON RECORD: 0-0-0
Hand up. We had a mediocre 2021 betting record finishing the year around 54%. But we have studied all off season for this moment. WE ARE READY TO FIRE AWAY AT WEEK 0. There are just a handful of games, but still plenty of action to be had.
WE ARE BACK. WE ARE BACK. WE ARE BACK. LET’S GET TO THE PICKS:
Week 0 Game of the Week (All Times CST)
Northwestern vs Nebraska (-12) – 11:30am (Dublin, Ireland)
LIVE FROM DUBLIN, IRELAND FOR HIGH FLYING BIG TEN ACTION. New Nebraska offensive coordinator Mark Whipple comes from Pittsburgh where he put up an offensive clinic. He will try to show off in his first game with experienced transfer QB Casey Thompson. Meanwhile, Northwestern’s defense was absolutely awful last year and lost their best player, Brandon Joseph, via transfer to Notre Dame. Look for a blowout in Dublin, Nebraska by 2+ touchdowns.
Pick: Nebraska 31-10
Top Pick(s) of the Week
North Texas at UTEP (+1) – 8:00pm
North Texas lost dynamic twin brother defensive ends Gabriel and Grayson Murphy. Now, they have a very inexperienced defensive line. On the other side, UTEP brings back 14 starters. I give UTEP the slight edge as a better team… then you add in the fact that it is at home and UTEP is getting points. UTEP is the play.
Vanderbilt (-6.5) at Hawaii – 9:30pm
Hawaii had ten starters leave on the defensive side and has a new head coach in Timmy Chang. Compare that to Vanderbilt who has 13 starters returning with a decent recruiting class coming in. Vanderbilt is way more talented than one of the worst teams in the Mountain West. Do not overrate the Hawaii homefield advantage, especially with them playing at Ching Field (seating capacity 9,300) while Aloha Stadium is under construction. Vanderbilt by over a touchdown.
