Picks of the Pole 2016

 
Each Saturday and Sunday of the football season we'll post consensus picks from some of the top handicappers around the country. We'll rate these picks as VERY STRONG, STRONG or REGULAR strength plays and, looking at history, we usually have a total of 8-12 plays per weekend in college and pro football.

Also, each weekend, we post for Clubhouse members ONLY my late thoughts. This can entail 1,2 or 3 college picks and a pro pick or two generally.

Consider joining the Clubhouse. It's very, very, very inexpensive compared to what betting services charge and I hope you'll enjoy the picks and other content.


 

FOOTBALL



Here are your Picks of the Pole for the Super Bowl

Playoffs two weeks ago: 3-3......Plays record so far: 15-6

SINGLE PLAY: Atlanta +140 New England on the money line to win the game straight up

I'd lean slightly to the UNDER in the total and of all the prop bets being offered UNDER the total in the first quarter intrigues me the most.

Good hunting on Sunday!
