When you down ‘n out can’t nobody trust ya,
But when you got bread it seem like e’rybody love ya
Constituents! We back up in this thang with another weekend slate full of opportunity. Last weekend we saw our first losing effort of the season and things could have been way worse had we not gone 3-0 on NFL to finish it out. Looking to jump back on the wagon this week with some chicken dinners for you fools.
Quick reminder for those who are just starting to follow us here at WiseGuys, our model is simple. We follow ~30 touts and aggregate all of their picks in to one place. Once multiple experts pick the same game, we line them out until someone picks against their pick. If every tout has the same consensus pick, we give that pick out as an official WiseGuys play.
If you like what we are putting out here, let us know and be sure to join the mailing list. Also, don’t hesitate to talk shit to us on Twitter/facebook, etc. We welcome your kind/unkind words any time. Now on the the picks…
NCAAF Week 8 – Aggregated Consensus Picks
Cincinatti @ Temple -3
This game wins the most consensus picks of the week with 8 of our follows picking the Owls to cover -3. This pick is interesting to me and there must be something I’m missing. The Bearcats are coming in undefeated but haven’t played a single team with a winning record yet this season. And it’s not like they are playing bottom tier Power 5 teams, they are playing clowns like Alabama A&M, Miami Ohio, Ohio Bobcats, etc. Overrated at #20 in the country, most definitely. Temple coming in after a few good wins and although they are 4-3 on the season, they are 4-1 since making a QB change week 3. Temple is the biggest lock of the week and I am pushing 6 units on it. Better effing win.
Utah State @ Wyoming +15
Two touchdown home dog getting 5 consensus picks, love these games. The other thing I love about these games is that I know nothing about either of these teams but I am just assuming they are both very average. I understand this isn’t a nice thing to say, but I kind of just take all these small-time, West coast teams and lump them in the same category. None of them are ever good and I have a hard time believing one team should be a 15-point favor in another one’s stadium. I also don’t buy in to the fact that people think these stadiums and teams have any tradition. One of these teams is based in Laramie (I guess that’s like Jeremy but with an L?) and the other is in Salt Lake, which is good because other than that I can’t name more than 2 cities in each of these states. So, if you want to bet a game and not watch a single down of it, this is the one. I will be laying a unit here and forgetting about it, just like the rest of the country has already forgotten about these teams. *Shouts out to our Mid-West readers!
Wake Forest +10.5@ FSU
Step 1, I will never not use this gif when given an opportunity. Step 2, what the hell is wrong with FSU? I mean, we knew they were going to have a down year but GOOD GOD then are absolute babbbbbbage. Wake Forest rolls in to what will be a half-empty stadium this weekend a 10.5 point dog and our WiseGuys like their chances. Both teams coming off losses and have something to prove so I expect a fun match that should also break the over/under which is currently 59. Right now I got 1 unit on WF but could hit two before game time.
SMU +7 @ Tulane
Another shootout opportunity here and one thing is for certain, this game is always close. Our WiseGuys are betting the Green Wave spent a little too much time on Bourbon Friday and shows up slow. SMU +7 is a 4 tout consensus play.
Kansas +18 @ Texas Tech
I can’t believe I am doing this but I am going to bet on Kansas to win a football game. Gotta be honest with yall, This makes zero effing sense to me but 5 of our WiseGuys picked Kansas so I gotta ride with. I feel like I’ve already lost this money tbh.
