Scott Van Pelt 2016 Week 8 CFB WINNER$ Picks On ESPN Sports Center

SVP had a winning week last week, going 3-2, which puts him only 1 game under .500 for the season.  Not too shabby.

Stanford Steve’s pick North Carolina pick won outright.

SVP changed things up a bit this week.  He typically only take dogs for this segment, but today he picked two favorites, only because the lines for these two games make absolutely no sense, so of course he’s taking the favorite.  He think these two teams should easily be the dog.

Scott Van Pelt 2016 Week 7 CFB Bad Beats On ESPN Sports Center

All the degenerates’ favorite segment of the week, here’s a chance to relive your bad beats of the week, or just laugh at other people’s miseries over the weekend.

Another onside kick returned for TD bad beat this past week.  Ouch.

That Central Michigan game over bad beat is pretty damn hilarious (for the over backers of course).

Scott Van Pelt 2016 Week 6 CFB Bad Beats On ESPN Sports Center

There were a tons of bad beats this past weekend.  Glorious wins for some…sucks to be on the other side.

Howcome those onside kick return for TD backdoor cover never happen for us huh?  Two touchdowns in 8 seconds because of that onside TD, pretty ridiculous.

The good ol’ 4th and 32 last second heeve hail mary, we always win those right? Piece of cake.

Scott Van Pelt 2016 Week 5 CFB Bad Beats On ESPN Sports Center

The Sun Belt edition of Bad Beats is pretty atrocious (for the people that took the under). Just watch what happens, makes me sick and I didn’t even have action in that game.

Love how Urban Meyers just toyed with a decent D1 program.  Tough loss on that under.

Scott Van Pelt 2016 Week 4 CFB Bad Beats On ESPN Sports Center

Update: check out SVP’s week 5 picks here

SVP’s week 3 edition of bad beats is basically a pac12 edition, both games were pretty lame (for the losers).

As I predicted last week after the games, of course SVP would include the UCLA debacle as his top bad beats of week 3 of CFB.  The cover happened on the LAST play of the game!

That Cal game SVP mentioned in this segment is pretty gnarly too, losing both bets on an onside kick return, holy frick!

Fumble-6 and onside-kick-return-6, wow what a weekend for backdoor covers, that NEVER happens.

Scott Van Pelt 2016 Week 3 CFB Bad Beats On ESPN Sports Center

Ohhh…the dreaded pick 6 to lose the cover in the last minute of the game. That’s the worst!  Yup, that happened over the weekend in the Liberty vs SMU game.  But if you’re betting that game and you’re not an alum of either school…you either are a genius or you got issues.

Ever pray for the kicker to miss an extra point to win your bet?  That NEVVVVVVER happens for us…but happened yesterday to degenerate.

The other game is also pretty painful, garbage time back door covers on the LAST play of the game. Ouch!

Scott Van Pelt 2016 Week 2 CFB Bad Beats On ESPN Sports Center

Each week, Scott picks out a few bad beats that happened over the weekend.  We’ve all been there, and it always seems like we’re always on the wrong side of the bad beats, it’s painful when it happens to you, but hilarious when it happens to others.  Great segment by SVP.

First up is the Oregon game:


With Oregon leading 44-26 and only 1 minute left in the game, it Oregon could have easily just kneeled and ended the game.  Instead, the next play the Oregon running back actually took the house from midfield! BUT…of course, holding call on the play.  What a heartbreaker.  The would be TD would have covered both the over AND the favorite.  Instead that holding penalty made winners for the dog and under.

Old Dominion game:

This one doesn’t seem THAT bad, considered what we’ve all been through in our bad beats.  This game had over 4 minutes remaining in the game.   But Appalachian State did have the game wrapped up with 4 minutes left, but they actually went gung ho on this last drive even though the game was already out of hand.  The coach decided to go for it TWICE on 4th down, and finally punching it in in the last minute.  If I had Old Dominion this, that last 4 minute drive would be gut wrenching given the circumstances.

Tulsa 1st Half:


This one’s pretty bad.  What the heck was Tulsa thinking??  Deep in their own territory with 49 seconds remaining in the half, a huge storm came through, and it was raining cats and dogs.  Why would the coach try to put together a drive under that condition?  And of course, the ball slips out of the QB’s hand and turns into a pick 6 to lose the first half cover. OUCH!

Western Kentucky Good Win


This is the one most people probably saw on Sports Center over and over, where Lane Kiffin had his ass chewed off by Nick Saban.  Bama had the ball and was covering with 98 seconds remaining in the game.  All Bama had to do was kneel and go home!  But Kiffin called for a play that ultimately led to a fumble, and Western Kentucky miraculously scored on the short field.  Poor Kiffin.
