College Picks Against the Spread & Over/Under Special

Posted by in College Football, College Football Picks on October 29th, 2010 | Comment »

I apologize to my FF, Faithful Followers, for the split in the NC State FSU game. There should have been multiple extra scores in the game, but hey that’s the game of football. Today I have done a lot of researching and a few things have caught my eye. Saturday will be the day of the OVER.

1.) Tennessee Over 49

– I like the over in this game. That is all to be said for this one.

2.)Florida Over 47.5

-I like the over in this game because of a few different statistics: Florida’s games have gone over 10 out of the last 11 times after allowing 200 yards rushing their past game, they are 4-1 after allowing 20 points or less in their previous game, 4-1 after an ATS loss, and the Gators games go over in 8 of their last 10 games at neutral sites. Georgia’s games have gone over in 5 or their last 6 games as favorites, and the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games while playing in October. (courtesy of covers.com).

3.) Iowa Over 50.5

-Iowa’s defense is built for more interior play. They are still, for the most part, a traditional smash mouth football type of team that the Big 10 has lost sight of. Iowa did hold Michigan’s spread attack to minimal points, but with Denard and the Wolverines being inside the red zone of the Hawkeyes  while turning the ball over proves to me that a more open type of offensive attack could do the Iowa defense in. Now don’t get me wrong I’m not saying that either of these teams aren’t strong defensive teams, but I’m just going by stats and trends. Michigan State’s games have gone …

Florida State vs. NC State Against the Spread and Over Under Special

Posted by in College Football, College Football Picks on October 28th, 2010 | 4 Comments

NC State Offensive Attack

What a compelling game on a Thursday night! What an ACC Matchup with Florida State traveling to North Carolina State. Florida State and NC State are two of the top teams in the ACC and have very powerful offenses. Both teams average over 420 yards a game. Florida state with 221 in the air and 211 on the ground while NC State averages 323 in the air and 136 on the ground. Florida state also averages 34.9 ppg while NC State throws up 36 a game.

The over is 5-0 in both team’s last five games when NC State was a home underdog, 4-0 when NC State is an underdog from 3.5-10 points, 13-3 in NC State’s last 16 conference games, 6-2 when FSU is favored by 3.5-10 points.

After taking a look at the line movement in this game I really like the over as well. The line opened up at 56.5 and is currently at 59. Jump on this line now.

Secondly, I like the NC State Wolfpack in this Thursday night matchup. The Wolfpack were down 21-0 after the 1st quarter, but tightened up their chin straps after the first and made a comeback, which I believe boosted their confidence and will make them want to come out and smash their ACC foe in FSU. There are a few more reasons I am liking the Wolf Pack tonight:

1.) NC State is 8-0-1 ATS in their last 9 meetings

2.) NC State is 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 meetings at NC State

3.) The underdog, NC State in this case, is 8-0-1 ATS in the last 9 games between both teams.

If the Wolf Pack can step up on their rush …

The Kid’s Week 5 NFL ATS and O/U

Posted by in NFL General, NFL Picks, NFL Predictions on October 7th, 2010 | 6 Comments

I am finally getting an article out to you guys before Saturday. This should give you time to do your own research and let my picks sink in. I hope you all took my Sunday night winner on the New York Giants (-3.5). I predicted the wrong score, but I got the ‘Giants by 17’ correct. That now makes me 7-4-0 on my NFL picks.

I am not doing every week 5 pick in the NFL, but I will give you some that stick out to me and I like. These will be in order from my strongest plays to my, well I wouldn’t say WEAK, but you get the point.

Get your free ticket

Game 1: Take the Buffalo Bills +1 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Buffalo doesn’t even need the points in this game. They get their first win this week against the Jags. The Jags are coming off a huge victory against the Colts and watch them totally overlook this game. Jags rank 30th in opponents passing yards per game, I like Fitzpatrick to absolutely erupt in this game and win by a touchdown.

Game 2: Take the Washington Redskins +2.5 against the Green Bay Packers.

This is a big game for the Washington Redskins coming in at 2-2 and look to stay on pace with the rest of the NFC East. Even thought the Skins have one of the worst pass defenses in the league, the Pack have virtually no run game. Washington will key on Rodgers and the passing game. Now Washington is without Clinton Portis which scares me a little bit, but the offensive line played great against Philly and hopefully they keep that up as Washington will roll and cover the spread.

Game 3:

The Kid Can Read

Posted by in NFL General on October 3rd, 2010 | 18 Comments

Sorry fans, I have been away on business and am now just getting time to share my thoughts for tonight’s game.

The line is New York Giants (-3.5) against the Chicago Bears. I got the line at Giants (-3) which I love. When I first looked at this line I instantly knew what the odds-makers were going for. Undefeated Chicago Bears GETTING 3.5 points against the (1-2) New York Giants? I bet many of you love the undefeated Bears getting points and think that line is way off. Well news for you, it is right on point. I mean, sure, Giants have been playing terribly BUT tonight they will come together and Eli Manning will have a good night. Eli WILL NOT let his team get in the hole (1-3) and I see them winning tonight by a double digit amount. I see Cutler and Manning reversing roles tonight with Cutler throwing picks and Manning throwing TD passes. This should be  a great game to watch with so many weapons on both sides.

I apologize for getting this out so late, but I really like the New York Giants tonight at home with the points. Good luck to whomever you bet tonight!

Sunday Night Winner: Play on the Giants (-3.5) WINNER

Final Score: Giants 31 – Bears 17

Small play: Play on the OVER 44 in tonight’s contest.…

The Kid: NFL Sunday ‘Small Plays’

Posted by in NFL General, NFL Picks, NFL Predictions on September 24th, 2010 | 3 Comments

Well I had a rough Thursday night. Pitt looked like THE worst team in CFB, total opposite of what they looked like against Utah. I am sorry for that pick I wrote about. Forgive me. But I hope you did play on Joey G’s UNDER, contrarily to what many of you thought, which hit easily.

Last Sunday in my ‘Small Play’ article I went 3-1-0 with the only loss coming as the Giants got smacked by Peyton and Co. I feel as if I know the NFL much better than CFB, so I will not make any CFB picks but stay with the NFL. I am putting this article out a little earlier than usual so you can soak in my picks and take some winners. I am most confident in my first two plays, but I like them all.

1) Play on the UNDER 33 in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Pittsburgh Steelers game.Both offenses are terrible and Pitt has their third string QB starting the game. LOSER

2) Play on the UNDER 37 in the Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens game. Look for Baltimore to score more points with their defense this week than their offense, especially with Seneca Wallace getting the start. This is one of my most confident picks of the season so far. Me and JOEY G both love this under. Take it. LOSER

3) Play on the Atlanta Falcons (+3.5) against the N.O. Saints. Atlanta’s defense has been very impressive so far this year, look for them to cause problems for Drew Brees and his offense. I bet not too many of you like this pick, and that’s exactly why I do. I just told Joey G about my pick, he gave me the …

Nationally Televised Big Winner Goes to…

Posted by in College Football, College Football Picks on September 23rd, 2010 | 4 Comments

In tonight’s nationally televised showdown, I am making a small play on the Pittsburgh Panthers at (+4). There are a lot of trends that most of you are probably going to go by, but i don’t like too many of them. I like the Panthers tonight at home in their first HOME test of the season. Pitt played tough on the road at Utah but came up just shy of a victory. Pitt’s running game has not been where they want it to be so far this season. I’m looking for a big game tonight out of the nation’s leading rusher from ’09, Dion Lewis. Lewis has been held to only 102 yards on 35 carries thus far, this season. Dion Lewis will be the X-factor in tonight’s game if they want to come away with a win. The Panthers will come out with fire and intensity at home and look to make a statement on national television.

Here are some trends that should give you a little more incentive:

Pitt is 7-3 in their last 10 home games ATS

Miami is 3-13 in their last 16 ATS off of a bye week

Pitt is a HOME DOG (Vegas Martin)

Like I said, don’t get too caught up in these trends. Read the article and take Pitt for a small winner tonight.

Final: Pittsburgh 27-21 over Miami

The Kid’s ‘Small Play’ Sunday Picks AS

Posted by in NFL Picks on September 19th, 2010 | 2 Comments

I hope many of you are telling your friends about our site and are getting them into the betting ‘game’. Vegas, Brandon, Joey G, and myself are on fire right now. We have really come together and made some fantastic calls for you. We provide easy winners each week, tell your boys about our site.

Today is my favorite day of the week, NFL Sunday. Last Sunday I went 6-2 on my money picks. Check out my “The Kid’s Week Two ‘Sharp Play'”. That is my big play of the day. I see a few other small plays that I like today as well.

From strongest to weakest:

1. Play on the UNDER in the Tennessee and Pittsburgh game at 36. I love this UNDER as both teams put up very impressive defensive shows last week. Titans win this game 13-10 with an easy under winner. Enjoy.

2. Play on the UNDER in the St. Louis Rams and Oakland Raiders game at 37.5. This game should be another UNDER winner for you. Last week each team put 13 points. I do not see these offenses exploding today, the defenses will shut down the terrible offensives and go way under. Final score: Oakland wins 17-13.

3. Play on the Chicago Bears (+7) against the Dallas Cowboys. Chicago played well last week but I still don’t think they have you all convinced of what they can do. They will come in and give Dallas all they can handle. Dallas by 3.

4.  Play on the New York Giants (+5) against the Indianapolis Colts. Giants will give the Colts all they can handle. Eli Manning will hit the deep ball and then pound the ball on the ground today with …
