NCAA Football Picks, and Odds: 2016-17 Virginia Tech Hokies Forecast.

Written and authored by College Football League Expert Analyst Bobby Wallace. Charliessports.com produces it for Football news and notes. Winning Football Predictions will make clients huge profits through the 2016-17 season.

Longtime head coach Frank Beamer is no longer on the sideline in Blacksburg, Virginia. The 69-year-old North Carolina native will still be active at the Institute as special assistant to the Athletic Director.

Enter former Memphis Tigers coach Justin Fuente, who did a masterful job with the football program in basketball-crazed Memphis.

Fuente is an offensive genius and will have the luxury of recruiting five-star high school football players. Fuente did a great job developing first round draft choice and quarterback Paxton Lynch.

The Virginia Tech athletic department believes Fuente will have the Hokies in the hunt for an ACC title this season.

The Virginia Tech offense has a chance if excel if they grasp the concepts of Fuente this season.

Junior College transfer Jerod Evans is the favorite to become the starter under center to begin the season.

Virginia Tech has had their trouble putting points on the scoreboard the past few seasons. However, Fuente has a proven track record, and the Hokies will thrill fans with their new system.

Although, the team put up an average of thirty-one points per contest last season. They ranked near the bottom of the nation in rushing, passing and total yards.

Running Back Travon McMillian, over 1,000 yards rushing in his first season at “VA TECH” is back.

Fullback Sam Rogers can do it all out of the backfield and is one of the best in the land at his position.

Isaiah Ford and Cam Phillips plus tight end Bucky Hodges return which makes the Hokies offense one of the most talented in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Four experienced players return on the offensive line. Watch out ACC. Virginia Tech has a date with Tennessee early in the season.

The Hokies will travel to Notre Dame late in November in their out of conference schedule.

 

Longtime Defensive Coordinator Bud Foster will be on the sidelines again this season.

Fuente did an excellent job in keeping Foster in place, and they are on the same page. Foster and his “LUNCH PAIL” defense has been the staple of the Virginia Tech football program for a decade.

The pass defense ranked 19th in the nation last season but losses All-American Kendall Fuller at cornerback.

Also gone is “STUD” defensive tackle Luther Maddy and End Dadi Nicolas. Foster has talent with Ken Ekanem and Woody Baron in the trenches.

Linebacker could be a position the Hokies struggle, in particular against the pass.

Cornerbacks Brandon Facyson and Greg Stroman have next level talent. Fuller was hurt a lot last season, and many players saw a lot of action in the secondary.

Bovada.Lv list the Virginia Tech Hokies at +1,400 to win the 2016-17 Atlantic Coast Conference Championship.

2016-17 NFL Predictions, and Odds: Pittsburgh Steelers Preview.

Written and authored by National Football League Expert Analyst Greg Nelson. Charliessports.com produces it for Football news and notes. NFL Betting Picks will make clients huge profits through the 2016-17 season.

As the start of training camp begins the Pittsburgh Steelers will be without Running Back Le’Veon Bell. The former Michigan State star will miss the first four games due to a drug suspension.

Bell recently made a “RAP VIDEO” stating he wants 15-million per season. The Rooney family values the status of great football players, but they want guy’s who are accountable.

General Manager Kevin Colbert has a plan with DeAngelo Williams, and Fitzgerald Toussaint must carry the load.

The Steelers beat Cincinnati in the first round of the playoffs last season before losing to Denver.

 

The Pittsburgh Steelers offense will be again led by future Hall of Famer Ben Roethlisberger. Landry Jones is still in the learning stages. Offensive Coordinator Todd Haley believes the unit has a chance to be special.

Wideout Antonio Brown is the primary target on the outside. Wideout Martavis Bryant will miss the entire season due to suspension.

The addition of former San Diego Chargers tight end Ladarius Green will be able to stretch opposing defenses with speed at the position.

All Pro Center Maurkice Pouncey and Tackle Marcus Gilbert anchor the unit.

The Pittsburgh offense ranked third in total and passing yards last season.

The Steelers rushing attack must have Bell in the lineup to raise their average per rushing yards.

 

The 2016-17 Pittsburgh Steelers defense upgraded their secondary in the 2016 NFL draft.

University of Miami cornerback Artie Burns was the Steelers first pick and safety Sean Davis in round two. Five of the first seven draft picks were defensive players.

The Pittsburgh secondary ranked 30th in the league last season, and that is unacceptable. Coordinator Keith Butler has his word cut out, especially in the secondary.

Defensive Ends Cameron Heyward and Stephon Tuitt have the ability to provide a pass rush.

Inside Linebacker Ryan Shazier and Lawrence Timmons are two of the fastest at the position in the NFL.

Shazier came played big last season in blitz packages and coverage.

Bovada.Lv list the Pittsburgh Steelers at +6/1 to win the 2016-17 AFC Championship.

2016-17 College Football Picks, and Odds: Miami Hurricanes Forecast.

Written and authored by NCAA Football Expert Analyst Charlie Red McDougall. Charliessports.com produces it for Football news and notes.College Football ATS Predictions will make clients huge profits through the 2016-17 season.

Gone from the University of Miami is Al Golden, the former Temple head coach had a gaunt task of rebuilding.

Former Hurricanes quarterback and Georgia Bulldogs coach Mark Richt is now in charge. The Fans in South Florida believe Richt will put the “CANES” football program back on the map.

Richt has an impressive recruiting base in the talent-rich Sunshine State, especially Miami and Fort Lauderdale. Richt will also double as the team’s offensive coordinator.

Everything is in place for the Hurricanes to start flexing their muscle in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Miami also has a soft out of conference schedule.

 

The 2016-17 University of Miami offense, led by Junior quarterback Brad Kaaya (3,238) passing yards last season.

The California native enters his third season as the starter and is among the best in the nation. Miami has a slew of talent at the running back position.

Miamians Joe Yearby and Mark Walton are two of the best in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Yearby led the team with just over 1,000 yards rushing while Walton scored a team-high ten touchdowns as a true Freshman last season.

Gus Edward will also get plenty of touches out of the backfield. Wideout Stacy Coley returns for his senior season after turning down the NFL.

While the team is loaded at skilled positions, Richt must work with the offensive line. The unit had trouble run blocking and were pathetic in spring practice.

The key to a successful season in Coral Gables will be o-line holds up! Richt has some tricks up his sleeve.

Richt addressed the defensive woes by bringing in former Texas and Mississippi State coordinator Manny Diaz to run the show on that side of the football.

Diaz is back home where he was born and raised. Gone from the team is cornerbacks and first round draft choice Artie Burns. Tracy Howard must also be replaced on the other side of Burns.

Diaz has two highly regarded defensive ends in Chad Thomas and Al-Quadin Muhammad; both have next level potential.

The defense is also solid at the tackle position. The back seven could be a problem for Diaz, who likes to blitz.

Senior safeties Jamal Carter and Rayshawn Jenkins are prime time players.

There is always speed at the “U”, but the linebacker position is a problem, not with speed but with experience.

Bovada.Lv lists the Miami Hurricanes at +900 to win the 2016 Atlantic Coast Conference Championship.

Winning Football Predictions, and Odds: 2016-17 Cleveland Browns Forecast.

Written and authored by National Football League Expert Analyst Bobby Wallace. Charliessports.com produces it for Football news and notes.NFL Betting Picks will make clients huge profits through the 2016-17 season.

Thanks to the NBA Cavaliers the largest city in the “BUCKEYE STATE” finally ended the drought by winning the 2016 NBA Title.

The Cleveland Browns organization has tried all of the quick fixes and are again back to the drawing board.

The franchise has their third head coach in four seasons.

Hue Jackson takes over on the sidelines in Cleveland.

General Manager Sashi Brown maybe on his last leg with the team.

Owner Jimmy Haslam must bring some stability to the franchise by sticking with Jackson for a while.

The 2016-17 Cleveland Browns offense will be run by coordinator Pep Hamilton.

The former Indianapolis Colts Offensive Coordinator was the fall guy last season with a struggling Colts offense.

Hamilton has his word cut out as the Browns offense ranked 30th in the league last season averaging a little over 17-points per contest last season.

Gone from the roster is former Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel. Star wideout Josh Gordon tried for reinstatement but got denied for failing another drug test.

Gordon will file again in August, maybe, this time, he will pass. Robert Griffin 111 come over from Washington to run the offense.

The entire organization believes the former Washington Rookie of the Year will be the starter for years to come.

First round draft choice Corey Coleman is going to be able to stretch the field against opposing defenses.

Third round selection Cody Kessler could be the steal of the 2016 NFL draft, the USC alumni lacks a big arm but is accurate.

Running Back, Isaiah Crowell must stay off of social media.

 

The Cleveland Browns defense began last season in dominant fashion but struggled down the stretch.

How can you expect the defense to continue to make plays when the offense is incapable of moving the football.

Longtime Arizona Cardinals coordinator Ray Horton is now in charge of the Cleveland defense.

Horton soon will be a head coach but for now, he’s the man in Cleveland.

Nose Tackle Danny Shelton is turning into a Pro Bowl caliber player.

2016 second round draft picks Emmanuel Ogbah, and Carl Nassib will be looked upon to provide a pass rush.

Barkevious Mingo is the team’s most talented linebacker, look for the seventh rounder Scooby Wright to make a push for a starting spot on the inside.

Pro Bowler Joe Haden and Justin Gilbert are both capable shutdown cornerbacks.

The Cleveland secondary is one of the best in the division.

Bovada.Lv list the Cleveland Browns at +1,200 to win the 2016-17 AFC North Title.

Free 2016-17 NFL Picks, and Odds: Cincinnati Bengals Preview.

Written and authored by National Football League Expert Analyst Al Presto. Charliessports.com produces it for Football news and notes. NFL ATS Predictions will make clients huge profits through the 2016-17 season.

Marvin Lewis enters his fourteenth season on the sidelines in “THE QUEEN CITY”. The former Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator has his stamp on the team.

However, fans are still skeptical as the team has not been able to get past the first round of the playoffs.

It’s a luxury most franchises would love to have but repeating the same pattern is getting old to the faithful in the “BUCKEYE STATE.”

President and General Manager Mike Brown wants stability in the organization and is committed to Lewis. Can the Bengals take it to another level this season?

The team has talent at every position on the football field.

Quarterback Andy Dalton must also prove he is the guy to lead the team.

 

Offensive Coordinator Ken Zampese took over for Jay Gruden last season and did a masterful job with the offense.

A late season injury to Dalton which sidelined him for the postseason loomed huge in their postseason loss to Pittsburgh.

The Cincinnati offense ranked seventh in scoring last season. Running Backs Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard are two of the best in the game. Hill is a between the tackles runner who possess the speed to break the long run. Bernard can take it the distance anytime he has the ball in his hands.

Wideout AJ Green is one of the best in the business. Rookie second-round draft choice Tyler Boyd will take the place of Marvin Jones in the passing game.

The Bengals offense is also loaded at tight end.

The offensive line is solid with longtime tackle Andrew Whitworth, the anchor. Cedric Ogbuehi is a future All Pro and must prove his worth this season.

The 2016-17 Cincinnati Bengals defense led by Paul Guenther is stable.

Cincinnati took Univeristy of Houston Cornerback William Jackson with their first pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

Reliable safety Reggie Nelson is now a member of the Oakland Raiders. George Iloka will be called upon to replace Nelson.

The unit is loaded at the cornerback position, and most are first rounders.

Linebackers Vontaze Burfict and Rey Maualuga are terrific at every aspect of the game. Burfict must play with more composure; he cost the team a playoff game last season with an emotional play vs. Pittsburgh.

The strength of the Cincinnati defense is along the front line. Pass Rusher Carlos Dunlap is turning into a star.

Geno Atkins is still one of the best in the NFL.

Bovada.Lv list the Cincinnati Bengals at +140 to win the 2016-17 AFC North Crown.

Free NCAA Football Predictions, and Odds For 2016-17: Notre Dame Fighting Irish Forecast.

Written and authored by College Football Expert Analyst Greg Nelson. Charliessports.com produces it for Football news and notes. College Football ATS Picks will make clients huge profits through the 2016-17 season.

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish ended the season on a losing note in 2015. A Fiesta Bowl loss to Ohio State.

Head Coach Brian Kelly enters his sixth season on the sideline at the Northern Indiana based Institute.

Since coming over from the University of Cincinnati, Kelly is 55-23, and the program is taking on his stature.

The Fighting Irish come into the 2016 season in the preseason top ten. While most NCAA Football programs struggle with which player will be under center.

The Notre Dame coaching staff has the luxury of deciding between two talented quarterbacks.

 

Offensive Coordinator Mike Sanford and the Notre Dame offense returns quarterbacks DeShone Kizer and Malik Zaire. Kizer took over as a true freshman after Zaire was lost at Virginia early in the 2015 season.

Kelly and Sanford have not ruled out a two-quarterback system but will probably name the starter at the end of fall camp.

Kizer threw for nearly 3,000 yards and got better each week. The Notre Dame offense is going to put up crazy numbers as the coaching staff and players are now comfortable in the system.

Running Back Tarean Folston returns after missing the entire 2015 campaign and backup Josh Adams did an excellent job with 835 yards as a true freshman. Wideout Will Fuller is now in the NFL.

Torii Hunter Jr and a few underclassmen must provide separation in the passing game. The offensive line must be rebuilt.

Two starters from the offensive line were selected in the top fifty picks of the 2016 NFL draft.

The 2016 Notre Dame defense led by coordinator Brian VanGorder, who is in his third season at Notre Dame.

Gone are linebacker NFL draftees Jaylon Smith and tackle Sheldon Day among others.

The opposition may have a tough time running between the tackles this season with the talent on the defensive line.

Louisiana native Jerry Tillery has next-level talent at the tackle position. There are question marks at linebacker and in the secondary.

It’s a chance for VanGorder to show what his recruiting classes are about on defense. There is talent, but it is unproven.

Underclassmen will get plenty of looks before the start of the season. Safety Drue Tranquill, who has two ACL tears, will be a starter at safety.

Notre Dame will open the season vs. The Texas Longhorns on September 3rd. There are also home dates with Michigan State, Miami, Florida and Virginia Tech.

Bovada.Lv list the Notre Dame Fighting Irish at +2,000 to win the 2016 BCS Championship.

NCAA Football Betting Predictions, and Odds For 2016-17: Clemson Tigers Preview.

Written and authored by College Football Expert Analyst Charlie Red McDougall. Charliessports.com produces it for Football news and notes.Winning NCAA Football Picks will make clients huge profits through the 2016-17 season.

The entire College Football landscape got a surprise from the Clemson Tigers last season. Head Coach Dabo Swinney is one of the young and upcoming talents in the industry.

Clemson overcame every obstacle in 2015 to get to the BCS title game where they gave the Alabama Crimson Tide everything they could handle.

Swinney is a natural motivator with his enthusiasm and superior people skills. To put it mildly, the Clemson Tigers Football program is on the rise and expectations are through the roof this season.

The coaching staff did an adequate job recruiting players who fit their system and want to win.

 

The Clemson Tigers offense is going to be led again by Quarterback Deshaun Watson (4,104) passing yards.

The Gainesville, Georgia native will be the front runner to win the 2016 Heisman Trophy. Watsons didn’t miss a beat after a devastating knee injury in his freshman campaign.

Offensive Coordinator Tony Elliott and Jeff Scott will get interviews for head coaching jobs in the next few years.

The Tigers offense ranked eleventh nationally averaging 515.0 yards per contest. Clemson also returns their main weapon in the backfield with Wayne Gallman (1,527) rushing yards with a team-best fourteen touchdowns.

Wideout Mike Williams will be in the mix in the passing game. The Junior missed all but the first game last season after a neck injury. The offensive line is intact led by tackle Mitch Hyatt.

Clemson opens up the 2016 season at Auburn on Labor Day Weekend. The Tiger will also travel to Florida State the last weekend in October.

The 2016-17 Clemson Tiger defense is playing lights out since Brent Venables came to the South Carolina school from the University of Oklahoma.

The unit will be without NFL draft picks Shaq Lawson and Kevin Dodd. Both were studs at their end positions, but Venables will find talent to produce a superior pass rush again in 2016.

Senior defensive tackle Carlos Watkins will anchor the front four.

The Clemson Tigers defense ranked 10th in the FBS last season, allowing a little over 313.0 yards per contest to the opposition.

Highly recruited freshman interior lineman Dexter Lawrence will see plenty of action to begin the season.

Senior linebacker Ben Boulware led the team in tackles last season and will be looked upon for leadership. Cordrea Tankersley is one of the best cornerbacks in the Atlantic Coast Conference, but the rest of the secondary is unproven.

Bovada.Lv list the Penn State Nittany Lions at +150 to win the 2016 Atlantic Coast Conference Championship.
