VIP Picks 1/1/24

Happy New Year! Definitely not the way we wanted to end the year yesterday with the Eagles blowing the 🔨 in the final minute but nothing we can do about it. I'm excited for 2024 and look to continue our consistent success. I would like to hear any feedback you guys have for me as far as what you would like to see more of, changes, or new ideas to make us all more successful. Cheers!


CFB:

5:00 EST

Teaser 7 Pt

Bama (+9.5) / Texas / Washington Over (55.5)

  • Bama comes in after knocking off Georgia who is a better team than Michigan. We are getting them with a +8.5 cushion in this one.

  • Bama lost to Texas early in the season and dropped down in the standings because no one thought Texas was a power house team. Fast forward 3 months and Bama has reeled off 11 straight wins through SEC play and are looking for revenge on Texas in the National Championship next Monday night.

  • Jalen Milroe has been unstoppable as a dual threat QB leading the Bama offense that averaged 32.5 ppg. He will make the plays down the stretch to win this game or certainly keep it within 8.5. More on that in a sec. 

  • Then we have two of the top offenses going head to head with Washington (37.7 ppg) & Texas (36.2 ppg).

  • Washington went over 60 in 4 of their 5 games against ranked teams this season.

  • Texas went over 55 in 4 of their 5 games against ranked teams this season.

  • Look for this one to be an absolute shootout!


5:00 EST

Alabama (+105)

  • Some would call this double dipping since we already have Bama in the teaser but I can’t pass on the plus money odds for them to win outright.

  • Bama played a tougher schedule and has the better team from top to bottom.

  • Both defenses will show up and it’ll be the team who is able to execute down the stretch who will win this game and Bama should do that.

  • But don’t  forget Michigan’s big bad defense came into the Playoff last year and gave up 51 points to TCU.

  • Nick Saban is 8-2 as an underdog facing the #1 team in the country in his career. He will find a way to win this game.

  • Roll Damn Tide!


8:45 EST

Texas (-4)

  • This game should be a shootout and Texas is well equipped to win that style of a game.

  • Washington has faced opponents with good offenses but the Texas defense has been able to come up with stops in key spots this season which I believe will allow them to cover this spread as we get into the second half. 

  • Texas QB Quinn Ewers should have a lot of success against this Washington defense who really struggled against the pass this season - both Caleb Williams & Bo Nix threw for 300+ on them.

  • Michael Penix & the Washington offense will come firing right back but I do trust the Texas defense more and that will be the key to Texas winning and covering.
