Football Is Back (2015 - Wk.1)

Good afternoon everyone.  There are plenty of games to choose from on the college landscape this weekend, and this season we have a trio of prognosticators throwing darts at the dartboard and giving you our picks.  These picks used to come to you from my original blog, Bikini Hill, 6th, & The Strip.  I decided to move our predictions here because Bikini Hill was becoming a blog about everything.  If you're interested at all about who I am, my personal life, etc.., feel free to click on the link above and check out that blog.

It is again my intention to post here every Friday of the football season.  The three of us (my friend Joey, my brother Pete, and myself) will each select three games each week to forecast (either against the spread, or in regard to the total - over/under).  Picking only three games apiece will hopefully give us a respectable winning percentage.  It is our intention to give you picks on every college and NFL playoff game once that time of the season arrives.  Regardless, these are by no means guarantees, so if you wager, do so with caution...  Our trio was free to choose from any this weekend's college football matchups, and this is what we came up with...



Joey writes tickets at the Palace Station Sportsbook, and these are his three favorite bets for the opening weekend of college action...

Joey's Parlay Card (Season 0-0)

Texas (+9.5) @ Notre Dame
Old Dominion (-4.5) @ Eastern Michigan
Louisville (+10.5) @ Auburn


Joey decided to leave you with a few words this week (which I always leave up to my sharps)...

I am starting off dog heavy this year, so we shall see what happens.  I still work for Palace Station, so come by and say hi, and may all your tickets cash!





My brother Pete didn't have any words for you this week after working a late shift last night, but I expect that he'll have something to say to you in the future.  Like Joey, Pete also lives in Las Vegas, and is splitting shift between the sportsbooks at Bally's, Paris, and Planet Hollywood.  These are Pete's selections for this weekend...

Pete's Parlay Card (Season 0-0)

Notre Dame (-9.5) vs. Texas
Northern Illinois (-22.5) vs. UNLV
Arizona State/Texas A&M (Over 67)


Now for the only guy here who doesn't work in a Vegas sportsbook...




And this is what I came up for Week 1...

Coach's Parlay Card (Season 0-0)

Texas/Notre Dame (Under 51.5) - Better defenses than offenses here...
Nebraska (-6.5) vs. BYU - The Cornhuskers are getting the Cougars in Lincoln...
Alabama (-11) vs. Wisconsin - The stage in Arlington may be too big for the Badgers...


Enjoy your college football this weekend, and come back next week to praise and/or ridicule us...  ;)  Have a great football weekend everyone!
