College Football Week 6 Best Bets

Oh, the sweet sensation of lifting the Chalice of Undefeatedness on a Sunday morning! It's a feeling that never gets old. You never know how many undefeated weeks you'll have when it comes to picking games against the spread. It's just important to celebrate in an understated way that doesn't upset the Gambling Gods. I did this after an undefeated slate in Week 3 and, boy howdy, my Week 4 was a tire fire. After last week's triumph, we're back in the black with a winning record. Let's keep the momentum in Week 6, shall we?

College Football Week 5 Best Bets

One week after drinking from the sweet chalice of undefeatedness, the Gods reminded me of my own mortality. I picked Clemson to cover a 7-point spread in a game against Wake Forest, but after the game went to overtime, I found myself rooting openly for the Deacs. If the Tigers weren't going to cover against a team with no defense, I wanted them to lose outright. I backed Oregon and very nearly won on the most miraculous of front door covers, only to be reminded that nothing is a given until the clock hits 0:00.
