    NCAA Football Weekly Locks: Week 9

    Oklahoma State and Clemson both kept their undefeated seasons alive with big wins.  Unfortunately for Wisconsin, they couldn’t do the same as they were handed their first loss of the season by Michigan State.  That would also turn out to be our only loss of the weekend, as our picks in week 8 went 2-1 […]

    NCAA Football Weekly Locks: Week 8

    We went with three road favorites ranked in the top ten last week and it couldn’t have worked out any better for us, as LSU, Oklahoma State and Clemson all covered their respective spreads, giving us a perfect 3-0 record for the week.  That bumped our season record to an impressive 13-5 and we see […]

    2011 Weekly NFL Locks: Week 6

    The Patriots got their revenge on the New York Jets after being beaten by them in the playoffs last season, and a late goal line stand by the Oakland Raiders helped keep their game against the Houston Texans under the total.  That gave us wins in two of our three picks and bumped our record […]

    NCAA Football Weekly Locks: Week 7

    It wasn’t a very good week for us, as Auburn and Arkansas didn’t put up quite as many points as we had initially expected.  As for the Hokies, they were able to come away with a win, but a late surge from the Hurricanes prevented them from covering the spread.  Thankfully, LSU came though for […]

    2011 Weekly NFL Locks: Week 5

    The Detroit Lions came to the rescue once again, as an incredible second half comeback not only gave them the cover against the Dallas Cowboys, but it earned them the victory as well.  That game, along with the Chargers’ rather easy victory over the Dolphins, helped us put up a 2-1 record last weekend and […]

    The stars finally aligned last week, as we came away with our first perfect weekend of the season, and fourth consecutive winning weekend to open the 2011 NCAA Football schedule.  Alabama and Stanford both reminded us all why they are still among the elite programs in the nation with  sizable victories against Florida and UCLA, […]

    LSU is quickly becoming our favorite team to bet on, as they continue to win and cover the spread in the process.  As for Clemson, their victory over Florida State showed that they are a force to be reckoned with in the ACC.  Unfortunately for us, Oklahoma was unable to make a statement against Missouri, […]

    NCAA Football Weekly Locks: Week 4

    Michigan State disappointed last week as they were on the wrong end of Notre Dame’s much-anticipated ‘breakout game.’  Thankfully, we had both Oklahoma and Stanford to cover in Saturday’s evening slate.  That resulted in us coming out on top for the second week in a row to open the season.  This week’s NCAA schedule has […]

    2010 NFL Weekly Locks: Week 6

    Last week our picks fell victim to the excruciating last-minute touchdown.  The battle between the Bengals and the Bucs appeared to be headed under the 38-point total.  However, a late mental-lapse by the Bengals defense, and some great grabs by the Bucs’ receivers, helped Tampa punch home the game-tying touchdown with only 52 seconds left […]
