Week 12 Gambling Picks:

Week 10: 1-4-1
Overall 17-25-1

Took last week off. 

Really depressing times in college football. You used to be able to set your watch to the NCAA conferences. Big East, Big Ten, BIG 12, ACC, SEC. They used to mean something. Now by like 2014 gambling trends that have been shaped over 20 years will be dead. Isn’t it confusing to figure out when what teams are entering what conferences? Someone should probably get a blog together.

Whatever. For even more depression, my weekly pics.

Georgia Tech (-12) at Duke


Some trends to think about:

Yellow Jackets are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games vs. a team with a losing home record.
Yellow Jackets are 4-1 ATS vs. a team with a losing record.
Yellow Jackets are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a road favorite of 10.5 or greater.

Some trends for Duke: They suck.

Lay the 12.

Wisconsin (-16) at Illinois

Hey remember when Illinois was good?

Yea neither does Illinois. They’ve lost infinite games in a row. Wisconsin just has to take care of business in Champaign and beat Penn State next weekend to secure a spot in the Big Ten Championship game.  Badger city.

Clemson at NC State "Under 53"

"Under" is 4-0 in Clemson’s last four in November.

Kansas State at Texas:

The spread isn’t the deal here. Kansas St is sitting at +234 on the money line. This game will be close. Take a chance on Kansas State.
