Calvin’s College Basketball Formula Picks: Tuesday, December 17th, 2019

Although Saturday was an improvement from last Tuesday, it still wasn’t up to my standards. We went 6-7 on the day and last week was our worst week of the season thus far (and it really wasn’t all that bad). Unfortunately, bad days/weeks happen, it is part of the game. Now let’s bounce back with a big week this week and it all starts with today!

Today we got ourselves 14 picks (six spread and eight total). Some tiny adjustments were made after a rough week but nothing major because we the formula is still doing excellent despite our published picks slacking. Total picks continue to be the hot hand over the spread picks so far this season. That was the case last season as well and I personally am betting the totals more than the spreads.

Listen to the Sharp Edges Podcast hosted by myself and Brandon Wittmeyer each week. This week we will be getting some picks out for the start of the Bowl Season in college football, as well as some NFL picks in what should be a huge weekend. This past weekend my podcast picks went 6-4-1 including some UFC picks (1-1) and last minute NCAAB Friday night picks (2-0).
