Monday, November 19th Predictions

Prediction Record: 32-11 (ATS: 19-18)

Note: This is the first year I'm doing predictions with the spreads in parenthesis as opposed to just straight-up like I have done for the past two and a half seasons. I have received many e-mails suggesting I should make picks using betting lines in order to weed out some of the obvious games I predict. I also get feedback asking about my picks with the spread, so I figured I would try it out here for a few days to see if it generates positive or negative feedback.

Feel free to leave a comment or shoot me an e-mail at

I will have an extended Thoughts and Observations column up later today -- I usually put it up on Sunday night, but I had to get columns done for both CollegeHoopsNet and ProFantasySports so the Thoughts and Observations was pushed until today. Anyway, onto the picks -- plenty of quality neutral-site games today.

LSU vs. Oklahoma State (-3): Prediction: LSU 75, Oklahoma State 70
Notre Dame vs. Georgia Tech (+4): Prediction: Notre Dame 83, Georgia Tech 78
UCLA vs. Maryland (+10.5): Prediction: UCLA 74, Maryland 60
Baylor vs. Winthrop (+2): Prediction: Baylor 68, Winthrop 65
Michigan State vs. Missouri (+2): Prediction: Michigan State 71, Missouri 66
Arizona State vs. Illinois (-3.5): Prediction: Illinois 62, Arizona State 59


  1. How bout them Baylor Bears?

    PS: This site is incredible. Your ability to create work-product is insane, and I will be visiting here all season. Keep it up!

  2. I agree. Always nice to see a blogger with daily posts. The gambler in me likes this, although it might be interesting to provide commentary or rationale for your picks.

  3. Once the season really gets going and I'm less busy with other things (school, etc.), I bang out daily articles and column, which would give you a better perspective of where I'm coming from with my picks.
