Free Money Fives: NFL Week 12 & CFB Gambling Picks

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.I had back to back winning weeks in college and the NFL so you can say simply I am happy.  So we are back at it just taking money away from the casino.

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.


College Football

Mississippi State -1.5 vs Ole Miss

I really hope Lane Kiffin stays at Ole Miss so this isn’t the last Egg Bowl between him and Mike Leach. I do like the Bulldogs here.

Washington +1 vs Washington State

As a Husky alumni I want to say we have and always will own the Cougars.

Michigan +8 vs Ohio State

Could this be the time Jim Harbaugh finally gets it done against Ohio State?

Oklahoma State -4 vs Oklahoma

If the Cowboys win out there is a SLIGHT chance they might get in the college football playoff conversation.

Eastern Carolina +14 vs Cincinnati

I am just staying on brand here and hoping the Bearcats falter.

Season Record 35-25

National Football League


Colts +2.5 vs Buccaneers

The Colts have been playing really good football and the Bucs are off a short week.

Patriots -6.5 vs Titans

If the Patriots beat the Titans people might be calling the Patriots the class of the AFC.

49ers -3 vs Vikings

There’s no way Kirk Cousins and the Vikings season will go this smooth from here on out right?

Steelers +4.5 @ Bengals

The Bengals win but I think the Steelers keep it close.

Rams (PK) @ Packers

Could be a preview of the NFC Championship game. But in this edition I have the Rams winning.

Season Record: 23-30-2
