Week 9 Gambling Corner


This year has been rough and I most likely won't hit my 70% of winners like I did last season. But I am aiming to get back over 50% overall soon and by end the year be close to 60% if possible. There is a lot of work to do and I need more weeks like last week where I went 3-1 in the NFL picks. So lets get right to this weeks picks.


COLLEGE GAMES
Virginia Tech +1 over MIAMI
The bloom comes off the rose for the Miami Hurricanes this week. The Canes have played their last 4 games and pulled out a win but all have come down to the wire. They took lesser teams like UNC and Syracuse and let them stay in the game far longer than they should have. VT is for real and if Miami doesn't bring their "A" game VT wins easily. Wrong team is favored here.

Georgia Tech -9.5 over VIRGINIA
UVA is awful and GT is has lost 2 of their last 3 and those two were heartbreaking losses. I think GT looks to come out and beat up on somebody big time and UVA is a team everyone likes to beat up on.

Wisconsin -13 over INDIANA
I have gone against Indiana a few times this year and have been burned. Call me a sucker but I'm gonna do it again as I think Wisconsin is just flat out a far better team. Wisconsin has the playoff in their sites and they will come out motivated to lay a whoopin on the Hoosiers.

ALABAMA -21 over LSU
Bama at home will destroy an LSU team that is a bit of a hot mess. Bama is just too good.

NOTRE DAME -14 over Wake Forest
WF is another team that I have gone against a lot this year and have been burned. I just think ND is too damn good and will win easy at home.

Clemson -7 over NC STATE
The wheels may be about to come off for NC State and Clemson knows they can't slip up once more if they want to make the playoff. Clemson comes out motivated and focused and wins easily.


YEAR TO DATE RECORD: 12-14-2


NFL GAMES
SAN FRANCISCO +2 over Arizona
Arizona doesn't have a QB and I do think SF will win one this year and this is a prime spot for a win. SF getting 2 points here I like a lot and I think the 49ers eek out a win at home.

SEATTLE -7 over Washington
The Redskins have a ton of injuries. Their o-line is a mess and their tight end situation is worse. Seattle with that defense will win and cover a TD here with ease.

Kansas City +2.5 over Dallas
This point spread is all outta whack here as I see this as a field goal game either way and KC is the better team across the board. Elliott is playing which is a big reason why Dallas is favored but I'm not buying it, give me KC plus a couple.

PHILADELPHIA -7 over Denver
The number is high but the only reason I am taking Philly is because I do not think Denver can score. Their QB situation is a dumpster fire so if Philly puts up a couple TD's I think they win and cover here as I am not sure Denver scores more than 7-10 pts.

Indianapolis +7 over HOUSTON
Only taking this game because we have seen Houston doesn't have a QB now and we have seen them without Watson and they stink. Not sure Indy wins but they will keep it close.

YEAR TO DATE RECORD: 11-18-1
