Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Clemson Tigers Pick - The Alabama Crimson Tide take on the top-ranked defending CFP champion Clemson Tigers on January 1 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta in one of the CFP Semifinal Games. This has been the CFP final the last two seasons, with both teams having a deep recent history with each other. Last season, the Tigers won it all with a last-second TD and look for another win here. The Tide lost their last game, while Clemson thrived and florished on their way to this spot. Can we expect another close game like the last two? It should be a competitive and well-played affair, one with the highest of stakes. Who comes out ahead? Loot offers his take in this article. (8:45PM EST) - 1/1

Georgia Bulldogs vs. Oklahoma Sooners Pick - The Georgia Bulldogs meet the Oklahoma Sooners at the Rose Bowl on January 1 in one of the College Football Playoff Semifinal Games. This is a battle of 12-1 teams, both of whom did a great job this season to get to this spot. Both teams are also going to be well-rested for this spot, with nearly a month since their last game. Oklahoma won the Big 12 championship in their last game with a repeat win over TCU. Georgia, meanwhile, punched their ticket to this game with a revenge over Auburn to win the SEC in their last game, while avenging their only loss of the season. It's a matchup that gives way to a lot of possible outcomes. In this article, Loot breaks down the matchup and offers his betting pick! Check it out! (5PM EST) - 1/1

USC Trojans vs. Ohio State Buckeyes Pick - In the Cotton Bowl, the Pac-12 and Big Ten champions face off, with the USC Trojans and Ohio State Buckeyes doing battle in Arlington on December 29. Both teams won 11 games this season, but fell short of the CFP. For Ohio State, it may have been a more-bitter pill to swallow following a win over unbeaten Wisconsin in the conference title game. They will have to be at their best against a USC team that closed strongly, including a repeat-win over a good Stanford team to win the Pac-12. Who can prevail in this battle of heavyweights? Loot gives his take here! (8:30PM EST) - 12/29

Marshall Thundering Herd vs. Colorado State Rams Pick - On December 16, a pair of 7-5 teams will battle it out in the New Mexico Bowl, with the Conference USA's Marshall Thundering herd taking on the Mountain West's Colorado State Rams. While not the most-marquee of bowl-matchups, it's an interesting meshing of styles. Both teams were in a lot better shape over a month ago, before fallng on hard times late in the season. Which team can right the ship and come into Albuquerque and get it done on the 16th? Loot breaks the game down here, along with his ATS pick. (4:30PM EST) - 12/16

Boise State Broncos vs. Oregon Ducks Pick - The Boise State Broncos meet the Oregon Ducks in the Las Vegas Bowl on December 16. It's an interesting matchup with the Mountain West champion Broncos taking on a dangerous Pac-12 Oregon bunch. Oregon might not have been as successful as Boise was this season, but they played a much-higher level of opposition. Can Boise see their steady-running offense and good "D" translate against an Oregon team that can still do damage? Oregon ended the season with some decent momentum, but Boise State also finished strong as they won 8 of their last 9 games. Loot breaks down the Las Vegas Bowl in this article! (3:30PM EST) - 12/16

Army Black Knights vs. Navy Midshipmen Pick - In the 118th meeting between these two branches of the armed forces, the Army Black Knights take on the Navy Midshipmen on Saturday.

After an 8-win season, Army looks forward to another solid performance this season. Navy, meanwhile, has seen their season sour in the second-half, but looks for a big win in this rivalry game. Who will get the upper hand in Philadelphia this week? (3PM EST) - 12/9

Ohio State Buckeyes vs. Wisconsin Badgers Pick - In the Big Ten Title Game, the Ohio State Buckeyes take on the Wisconsin Badgers at Lucas Oil Stadium on Saturday. Wisconsin is unbeaten, but needs a win over Ohio State not only to win the conference title, but to get into the College Football Playoff. Ohio State, meanwhile, could re-enter the CFP discussion with a win here and looked strong on Saturday in a conclusive come-from-behind win over Michigan. The stakes are high for all the marbles in the Big Ten Championship. Loot breaks down the game in this article. (8PM EST) - 12/2

Miami Hurricanes vs. Clemson Tigers Pick - In the ACC title game, the Miami Hurricanes meet the Clemson Tigers in Charlotte on Saturday.

Loot breaks down this title game here in this article! (8PM EST) - 12/2

Georgia Bulldogs vs. Auburn Tigers Pick - The Georgia Bulldogs meet the Auburn Tigers on Saturday in Atlanta in the SEC title game on Saturday.

But the once-beaten Georgia Bulldogs, whose only loss came on November 11 against this very Auburn team, can re-enter the disussion with a big win this Saturday. Who can come out ahead in this title game on Saturday? Loot offers his ATS pick this week. (1PM EST) - 12/2

(12:30PM EST) - 12/2

Stanford Cardinal vs. USC Trojans Pick - In the Pac-12 title game at Levi's Stadium, the Stanford Cardinal will take on the USC Trojans on Friday. Stanford beat Notre Dame last week, but more importantly, Washington State lost, giving the Cardinal the North division title. They now take on a USC team that beat them earlier this season, 42-24. USC was off last week, making them better-rested for this, in addition to the fact that they have been surging of late. Can they repeat the win over the Cardinal or will an improved Stanford squad be able to exact revenge? Loot offers his take in this article! (8PM EST) - 12/1

Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs. Stanford Cardinal Pick - In this annual battle for the Crystal Bowl, the Notre Dame face the Stanford Cardinal on Saturday. Notre Dame looks for their tenth win this week in a tough road spot. To do so, they will have to beat a good Stanford team that has a lot to play for.

Alabama is the top-ranked team in the country and undefeated, but Auburn could get into the CFP picture with a win on Saturday.

Ohio State Buckeyes vs. Michigan Wolverines Pick - The Ohio State Buckeyes come to Ann Arbor on Saturday to face the Michigan Wolverines in Big Ten action. This is one of the biggest rivalries in college football. Michigan has not seen things go exactly their way, though they are 8-3.

California Golden Bears vs. UCLA Bruins Pick - In Pac-12 action on Friday, the Cal Golden Bears come into the Rose Bowl to take on the UCLA Bruins. It has been a challenging season for both teams, each of whom would love to end the season on a good note. UCLA's decent showing in a losing effort against USC led to the canning of head caoch Jim Mora, but one should look for Bruins' QB Josh Rosen to be trying to make a nice impression.

(10:30PM EST) - 11/24

Mississippi Rebels vs. Mississippi State Bulldogs Pick - The Ole Miss Rebels come into Starkville for an SEC matchup with the Mississippi State Bulldogs on Thursday on Thanksgiving.

UCLA Bruins vs. USC Trojans Pick - The UCLA Bruins meet the USC Trojans at the LA Coliseum on Saturday in a big Pac-12 battle.

Loot offers his ATS pick here in this article. (8PM EST) - 11/18

Michigan Wolverines vs. Wisconsin Badgers Pick - The Michigan Wolverines come to Madison to take on the undefeated Wisconsin Badgers in Big Ten action. The Wolverines have won three in a row and enter this game with some momentum. Wisconsin is unbeaten, but still unproven at this level.

UNLV Rebels vs. New Mexico Lobos Pick - In Mountain West action on Friday, the UNLV Rebels come to Dreamstyle Stadium to take on the New Mexico Lobos.

Both teams are coming off a little break for this game and should be well-rested. Iowa State has shown some signs of life this season and hope to give a robust challenge to the incoming Longhorns. Texas fell to 1-2 in their last game, but managed to give top-five USC a run for their money, nearly beating them in a double-overtime loss. Loot breaks down the game and offers his ATS pick here. (8:00PM EST) - 9/28

Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Vanderbilt Commodores Pick - In SEC action on Saturday, the top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide make the trip to face the Vanderbilt Commodores.

Will Alabama cover the big number or can the Commodores provide a challenge at home? Loot tries to answer that question and offers his ATS pick here. (3:30PM EST) - 9/23

USC Trojans vs. California Golden Bears Pick - The USC Trojans come to Berkeley for a Pac-12 matchup against the Cal Golden Bears on Saturday.

Loot breaks down the game and offers his pick against the spread. (3:30PM EST) - 9/23

Virginia Cavaliers vs. Boise State Broncos Pick - On Friday night, the Virginia Cavaliers come to Albertsons Stadium to face the Boise State Broncos in week four action. Both teams won last week, entering this game with some momentum.

In this article, Loot breaks down the game and offers his ATS betting analysis. (8PM EST) - 9/22

Temple Owls vs. South Florida Bulls Pick - In Thursday action from Raymond James Stadium in AAC play, the Temple Owls take on the South Florida Bulls. The Bulls are now ranked and at 3-0 and with dual threat QB Quinton Flowers, they look for more this week. To do so, they will need to beat a Temple team that beat them pretty bad last season. And after a win on Saturday, Temple looks to give their season a real kickstart with the upset road win this week. Who can come out on top in this matchup and who gets the cover? Loot offers his ATS guidance in this article. (7:30PM EST) - 9/21

Colorado State Rams vs. Alabama Crimson Tide Pick - In week three action from Bryant-Denny Stadium, the Colorado State Rams take on the top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday. Colorado State looks to put up a fight, but they face a very difficult road test. But in an ATS sense, they should give Alabama backers something to think about. The Tide have been impressive, first with a big win over Florida State and then an easy win over Fresno State last week. Loot offers his take on the game in this article. (7PM EST) - 9/16

Clemson Tigers vs. Louisville Cardinals Pick - In a heavyweight ACC matchup, the defending champion Clemson Tigers come into Kentucky to take on the Louisville Cardinals and Heisman winner Lamar Jackson. Clemson showed they are still a force with a conclusive win over ranked Auburn last week. But this is a tough road task against the best player in college football. Can Clemson stay on the winning track or are Jackson and the Cardinals ready to step up with what be a huge win for the program? Loot breaks the game down in this article and offers his ATS pick. (3:30PM EST) - 9/16

On Saturday, the Panthers were beaten, but by a top-five ranked Penn State team. Oklahoma State, meanwhile, has looked explosive through two games, though the difficulty should rise this week. Who can cover the spread and get the job done on Saturday? (12PM EST) - 9/16

Illinois Fighting Illini vs. South Florida Bulls Pick - The Fighting Illini look to go to 3-0 when they visit the South Florida Bulls on Friday. The Lovie Smith-led Fighting Illini were impressive in week two with a win over Western Kentucky. South Florida, meanwhile, is 2-0 and saw their Saturday game postponed amidst Florida weather concerns. Can Illinois keep the ball rolling or will South Florida's dual-threat quarterback Quinton Flowers have his way with this defense? Click here, as Loot breaks down the game with his ATS pick. (7PM EST) - 9/15

New Mexico Lobos vs. Boise State Broncos Pick - On Thursday in a Mountain West Conference battle, the New Mexico Lobos come to Albertsons Stadium to face the Boise State Broncos. Both teams have to recover from painful losses on the short week. New Mexico made a big comeback, but a failed two-point conversion cost them a close loss last week. And Boise is coming off an ultra-painful loss to Washington St. on Saturday. Who can shake it off in time for Thursday? Loot breaks the game down and offers his wagering guidance in this piece. (8PM EST) - 9/14

Boise State Broncos vs. Washington State Cougars Pick - The Boise State Broncos make the trip up to Pullman to face the Washington State Cougars on Saturday night in the late game. Both teams emerged from week one with wins, but the difficulty gets ramped up for both teams in this matchup. Can the Cougars and their high-powered offense led by Luke Falk explode against the Broncos? Or will Boise State see their defense contain the Cougs, while the offense keeps them in the game? Loot breaks down the whole affair here, along with his ATS pick. Take a peek! (10:30PM EST) - 9/9

Stanford Cardinal vs. USC Trojans Pick - It didn't take long for the Pac-12 conference to heat up. In week two, the Stanford Cardinal come to the LA Coliseum to face the USC Trojans on Saturday.

Who can get the win and who will cover the spread? Loot attempts to answer those questions in this article. (8:30PM EST) - 9/9

Oklahoma Sooners vs. Ohio State Buckeyes Pick - In one of the biggest games of the early 2017 college football season, the Oklahoma Sooners come to Columbus to face the Ohio State Buckeyes. The result of this game could go a long way toward determining if these teams will play for all the marbles later in the season. The Sooners have racked up 11 straight wins going back to last season, while the Buckeyes have their sights set squarely on the CFP. Who can emerge from this Saturday's matchup with the win and cover? Loot breaks down each team's case here. (7:30PM EST) - 9/9

Nebraska Cornhuskers vs. Oregon Ducks Pick - The Nebraska Cornhuskers make the long trip to Eugene to face the Oregon Ducks in Saturday week two action. Each team was victorious in week one in warm-up type games, with this being their first real matchup. The Ducks are at home with what looks like a high-powered offense.

Loot breaks the game down and offers his ATS pick here. (4:30PM EST) - 9/9

Cincinnati Bearcats vs. Michigan Wolverines Pick - In week two action, the Michigan Wolverines open up their 2017 season at home when they host the Cincinnati Bearcats in Ann Arbor on Saturday.

Oklahoma State Cowboys vs. South Alabama Jaguars - In week two action on Friday, the top-ten Oklahoma State Cowboys come to Mobile to face the plucky South Alabama Jaguars. In week one, Oklahoma State showed what they hope is one of the nation's most-powerful offenses, led by QB Mason Rudolph and a thick cast of difference-makers on offense. But they now take to the road against a South Alabama team that has some things going for it and covered in week one against Ole Miss. Loot breaks it down here and offers his pick. (8PM EST) - 9/8

Tennessee Volunteers vs. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Pick - The Tennessee Volunteers and Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets will conclude an extended week one when they meet on Monday in Atlanta. Both teams had a memorable 2016. Tennessee's season was characterized by wild finishes and unlikely comebacks.

(8PM EST) - 9/4

West Virginia Mountaineers vs. Virginia Tech Hokies Pick - To open the 2017 season, the West Virginia Mountaineers and Virginia Tech Hokies meet on Sunday at FedExField in Sunday action between top-25 teams.

Florida State Seminoles vs. Alabama Crimson Tide Pick - As far as week one matchups in college football go, it doesn't get much bigger than this.

Michigan Wolverines vs. Florida Gators Pick - At AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, the Michigan Wolverines and Florida Gators open up their seasons for 2017. In Harbaugh's third season, Michigan looks to keep the positive momentum going, but for first time under Harbaugh, they face major turnover in the personnel department. With Florida, we have a team that has won back-to-back SEC East titles under third-year coach Jim McElwain. Loot breaks down this high-profile Saturday matchup here, while offering his wagering counsel. (3:30PM EST) - 9/2

Utah State Aggies vs. Wisconsin Badgers Pick - The Utah State Aggies open their season with a tough road game with top-ten ranked Wisconsin in week one in Friday night action from Madison.

Tulsa Golden Hurricane vs. Oklahoma State Cowboys Pick - Tulsa comes to Stillwater to face Oklahoma State in week one action. Oklahoma St. is ranked in the top-ten and should have an explosive offense led by Mason Rudolph at quarterback. But they didn't get a softie in week one with a surging Tulsa program coming off a 10-win season. Can the Cowboys' offense generate a cover or will the Golden Hurricane show that they're built to hang in there with anybody? Loot offers his pick here. (7:30PM EST) - 8/31

2017 Big 12 Conference Predictions and Picks - In the 2017 college football season, the Big 12 looks to make a major impact. Once a perennial factor at the top, the Big 12 has been out of the picture for a handful of years.

Players to Watch out for in the 2017 Season - The sport of college football replenishes every year.

Signs That You Should Stop or Take an Extended Break - One thing that separates Lootmeister from other sites is our realistic look at betting and some of the hardships that bettors face.

In this article, Loot explores the benefits of stopping or taking a break if things start to get sideways during the college football season. It's not what people always want to hear, but sometimes it's the only answer. Take a look, as we begin to prepare for all possibilities with the upcoming CFB season.

Stressing the Matchup Component - When betting on any sport, the tendency is to evaluate each side individually. But any college football bettor who has been doing this for a while will tell you it's not enough to judge each team as if they exist on the vacuum. An appraisal of how two teams will mesh together is what it's all about. In this article, Loot imparts the importance of heavily pondering the matchup component whenever making a wager in college pigskin.

Not Forgetting the Game That is Sports Betting - When people bet on college football, most of their energy is spent on breaking down the game. Fair enough.

It's a key consideration that the best in the business have mastered to a tee. In this article, Loot breaks down how everyone can get the most bang for their buck when betting on college football.
