Welcome to Formulator Football Friday!

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT

I’ll be going live at Noon ET today on Periscope to talk football with you and give out free picks.  If you miss the live broadcast you can watch it later on Periscope.

This will start happening more frequently so stay tuned on social media  for alerts when we go live.  I’m hoping to have Saturday and Sunday morning gameday broadcasts and a Sunday afternoon broadcast predicting college football point spreads for the week ahead and recapping the previous week.

College Football Week 5

Huge games in college football this week starting tonight with Stanford at Washington.  The winner becomes the Pac-12 favorite and de facto playoff contender for the conference.

Home teams usually do well on these Thursday and Friday night games so watch out for Washington.

Saturday’s biggest games are Louisville at Clemson and Wisconsin at Michigan.  Both games will be similar to the Pac-12 game on Friday night.  The winners become playoff contenders.  A Louisville win could get them some votes for #1 since they’d already have wins over Clemson and Florida State this season.

The game to watch is Saturday night in Baton Rouge.  How does LSU respond to this week’s dismal of Les Miles?

Who do you think wins this weekend?  Make your picks in our free College Football Pick ‘Ems.  Pick game winners or Against The Spread.

NFL Week 4

By Monday night we’ll be a quarter of the way through the NFL season for 30 of the 32 teams.  That means it’s time to get it together if you’re 0-3.

We went 12-4 (75%) ATS last week on NFL!  See our week 4 NFL predictions and power rankings.

We’re 3-0 on the season with our NFL Survivor Pool Pick.  This week we went out on a bit of a limb with a team outside of our Top 10.  But to survive the season, you’ve got to take some calculated risks.
