Gambling is hard. There’s a reason casinos continue to pop up, and that Las Vegas continues to grow. Most people, do not win in gambling. Well, I try to not be one of those people. But last week my picks against the spread basically just broke even. We ended up going 5-0 in college football and ended up going 1-4 in the NFL. So we are back at it. It’s been a rough few weeks in the NFL but in college we seem to have a good grasp on our picks.
The reason I call this Free Money Five’s (I hope so). We got 5 picks in college and 5 picks in the NFL against the spread. So let’s continue our road to 56%. Here are some of my best picks for college football and the NFL against the spread.
Georgia (-18.5) vs Arkansas
We bet Arkansas last week and enjoyed helping me get to 5-0 on the week. But with their QB banged up and back to back week playing top 10 teams I think Arkansas will slow down and get blown out against a focused Georgia team.
Notre Dame (-2) vs Cincinnati
Notre Dame will end any hope of Cincinnati making a case for themselves making it to the college football playoff.
Ole Miss (+14.5) @ Alabama
Lane Kiffin is going to keep it close against Nick Saban in what should be the game of the day in college football.
Dan Patrick: “Have a fun weekend in Tuscaloosa. Can you have fun in Tuscaloosa?”
Lane Kiffin: “You can if you win.”#OleMiss

Baylor (+3.5) @ Oklahoma State
Baylor will come in to Oklahoma State and show that their undefeated record is no joke.
Indiana (+12.5) @ Penn State
Strictly a percentage play here. So much money on Penn State but the line hasn’t budged one bit.
Season Record: 14-6
National Football League
Vikings +2 vs Browns
Minnesota is ready to piggy back off a great game against the Seahawks last week.
Cowboys -4.5 vs Panthers
Sure the Panthers are well rested. But the Cowboys are playing great football. And the Panthers are without McCaffery so we need to wait and see how Darnold fares without his star running back.
Rams -4.5 vs Cardinals
The Cardinals have been good but have snuck out wins in 2 out of their last 3 weeks. There is not that kind of margin of error versus the Rams.
Saints -7 vs Giants
Saints are back home for the first time since the hurricane and I expect their crowd to be rocking.

Ravens +1 @ Broncos
The Broncos have been good but this is somewhat smoke and mirrors. The Ravens hand the Broncos their first loss of the season.
Season Record: 5-10
Season Record: 4-6
