Not a bad start at all.  After going 3-1 last week, Week 2 gambling corner will now feature 3 NFL games on top of the 4 college games.  The college games seem more like warm ups for the power house schools, but I found some gems.  Bet accordingly!

College Picks

Mississippi St (-7) @ Kansas State

This may seem like a lot, but I am not sold on Kansas State.  With an anemic offense and barely squeaking by in week 1, in comes a returning Nick Fitzgerald for Miss St and a good defense that only gave up an anemic 254 yards allowed in the first game.  Mississippi State should wins this handily on the road.

Western Michigan (+ 28) @ Michigan

Michigan did not look good against Notre Dame last week.  Even with 5 star recruit Shea Patterson at the helm, they came up short.  Western Michigan getting 4 touchdowns is a gift.  They had a shootout against Syracuse in which they put up 28 points in the third quarter.  They won’t do this against Michigan, but should keep it within 4 touchdowns.

Stanford (-5.5) vs USC

Stanford comes off a big win where USC had a slow start against lowly UNLV.  JJ Arcega-Whiteside (6/226/3TDs) is going to cause match up problems for the Trojans.  Expect a bounce back game from Bryce Love as well, who struggled last week.

Texas A&M (+12) vs Clemson: Lock Pick of the Week

Clemson is a great football team, but it will be a task to go take on the 12’s at Kyle Field.  Trayveon Williams (20 carries, 240 yards, 3 TDs) will be a tough task for a very good Clemson defense.  Both offenses have ton of fire power and both defenses can get after it.  12 seems too much for my liking.  Take A&M with the points.

College Season Record 3-1


NFL Picks Week 1

Texans (+6) @ Patriots

I just believe 6 is too much.  The Patriots are rolling into this game with Cordarrelle Patterson, Chris Hogan and Phillip Dorsett.  The Texans have an aggressive front 7 and will look to exploit the Patriots OL and make Brady uncomfortable.  DeShaun Watson should be able to move the sticks with his legs.  I also don’t see the Patriots secondary able to contain Hopkins and Fuller V.  Take the points.

Browns (+4.5) vs Steelers

Fans in Cleveland are finally excited about the Browns.  Tyrod Taylor does enough to keep his teams in games.  No Le’Veon Bell changes the dynamic of this game.  Pittsburgh OL will have a daunting task with Myles Garrett.  With James Connor as the unknown, look for the Browns to keep the clock moving and control time of possession.  Although they may win this outright, the Browns should be able to keep this within a field goal.

Chargers (-3.5) vs Chiefs

Chargers have been Super Bowl bound by many media outlets.  Rivers has a healthy WR corp and a capable OL, which they haven’t had in recent  years.  The Chiefs will send out Maholmes for his first start as a full time starter.  He is a bit of an unknown and will look to rely on quick throws and handing the ball to Kareem Hunt.  I just don’t believe they will be able to contain the offensive fire power of the Chargers.
