2008 NFL Football Record: 18-7 (+31.30 Units)
Happy College Football Kickoff Thursday!!
College football is finally here!! To tell you the truth, after a 3-1 (+13 unit) Tuesday & a 4-2 (+9.7 unit) Wednesday, I am not too sure that I want to or even should get away from the bases. Last night is another perfect example of why you should not lay the big wood with baseball teams on the road, especially during this time of the year. Take the big home dogs; It's the easiest way to bet like a sharp without doing any research. Sportsbooks & bookies do not like players that just bet big home dogs all time; the reason being that they never make any money from them. That's the second night in a row where we cashed in huge just laying small amounts on big home underdogs.
Enough about the bases, it's college football time!! I spent about 5 hours handicapping the college football schedule for all of the games from Thursday to Sunday. I was surprised by how many games sparked my handicapping interest. However, you have to be careful with your college football picks early in the season. There isn't any preseason or any televised showings where the betting public can get a good feel for these teams before the season starts. One piece of football betting advice that I would like to give you is this; Never base too much of your football betting analysis on what happened last season, especially in college football! Every year the major college football programs (and ever the best NFL teams) change considerably and there is only so much that is going to carry over in the following season. When betting at the beginning of the year, always look for all the major changes in each team compared to last season and do not take these changes lightly. Make sure to factor them into your selections.
Like I said last night, if anyone out there needs any football handicapping, money management, betting, or general advice at all, please feel free to post anything you want in the comments section. I will answer any and all questions. I am here to help. You can consider me your free personal professional sports handicapping service for the upcoming football season. However, unlike the majority of the slime out there that call themselves handicappers (who charge you in order to help you piss your money away), I will direct you to bet smart, the same way that sharps and real expert handicappers bet.
As for the the college football picks tonight, I will be playing one of the big televised ESPN match-ups as this was my favorite play on the NCAA board. I also have one additional NCAA football play. Hoping to continue the hot streak that we have been riding, I have two nice plays in Thursday's NFL preseason action and one move in the bases. Nothing crazy today players. Remember; It's a long football season! Here they are...
