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 my bank. We ended up going 2-3 in college football and ended up going 1-3-1 in the NFL. So we are back at it. It’s been a rough few weeks in the NFL and had a horrible college week.
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.
UCF +21.5 @ Cincinnati
Cincinatti is now ranked third in the country. Spoiler Alert, they are not the third best team in the nation. Cincinatti beat Notre Dame which is great, I give them props. But man I do not want to see a Cincinatti team lose by 300 points in the playoff. UCF covers and Cincinatti wins.
Kentucky +21.5 @ Georgia
Kentucky is undefeated, Georgia is undefeated. However, I think these two teams are miles apart. Kentucky will hang around but Georgia will win by exactly 21 points.
STILL UNDEFEATED ?

Purdue +11.5 @ Iowa
Iowa is now ranked 2nd in the country. If Penn State didn’t lose their quarterback I think Iowa loses that game and this lin would be Iowa -7.
Boston College +3 vs NC State
Boston College and NC State are both 5-1. I think this should be a pick em’. So we have a few free points here.
Washington -1.5 vs UCLA
I am a Husky fan I admit that. However, this line opened as UCLA as favorties. About 80% of the money is on UCLA and the line moved to Washington’s favor.
Season Record: 17-13
National Football League
Panthers +2 vs Vikings
I simply thing the Panthers are a better football team and they are at home. I know CMC is out but whatever, give me the Panthers.
Browns -3.5 vs Cardinals
I hate that extra half a point. But I am swallowing it. The Browns will hand the Cardinals there first loss of the season.
Ravens -2.5 vs Chargers
The game I am looking forward to the most. What are we going to see between Jackson vs Herbert is going to be a lot of fun.
Lamar Jackson tonight ?
? 1st QB in NFL history to complete 85% of passes in 400-yard game

Raiders +4 @ Broncos
I think the team will come together in wake of the Jon Gruden controversy.
Patriots +3.5 vs Cowboys
Bill Belichick teams get better as the season progresses. The Cowboys will win this game but the Patriots will make it ugly and close.
Season Record: 8-16-1
