College Football betting picks against the spread Week 8 2020
The Big Ten(14) and Mountain West begin play this week, so we have a whole bunch of college football betting to get to. Now we are just waiting on the Pac 12, who isn’t starting until after the election. That’s okay. I’m excited to have 45 games to pick!
Well, 44 now. We lost the Colorado State and New Mexico game. I wasn’t really looking forward to picking that anyway.
I finally hit .500 in week 7 but I still managed to mismanage the high point bets and ended up losing a couple more points. One thing at a time, I suppose.
In case you don’t know what I do here, I pick every FBS vs. FBS college football game of the season. Big deal, right? Lots of people make picks. Well, I do them all against the spread! I take the odds of each game and average them out at all the Vegas casinos and round to the nearest half. There will be no ties here. Ties are for the other football.
I also assign a point value based on the confidence I have in each pick. 1 means that I have little to no confidence. 5 is one I would place a decent wager on. I keep track of my record and my points back from year to year.
Games involving FCS vs. FCS schools and FBS vs. FCS schools will NOT be picked. Most of these lines are off the boards at the major casinos anyway. This year there are less of those games happening, and if there is enough demand, I make take a shot.
As we all well know, this is not an exact science. Due to the volatile nature of betting in general, this is for entertainment purposes only! I cannot be responsible for the loss of money, possessions, spouses, or limbs because of my picks. I can’t have that on my conscious.
Welcome Big Ten(14) and Mountain West! Don’t screw up my bets!
