Ryan’s Ramble: Revenge Tour

New, 12 comments

After the college football betting gods stomped all over my week 1 picks, I’m back and better than ever to turn things around.

The college football season is in full swing as we enter Week 2, and Ryan’s Ramble is back to bring you more (and hopefully better) picks prior to kickoff!

There’s no sugar coating it, last week’s bets were absolutely horrible, but as I always like to say after a rough weekend: you live and you learn. I choose to laugh at myself for saying stuff like Clemson -3 against Georgia was free money rather than bask in the disappointment of going 2-9.

We’re here to have a good time, and this week the theme is a revenge tour against the college football betting gods for ripping my heart out in week 1.

Since last week was historically bad, that can only mean this week will be historically great. Right?... After starting 3-1 in week 0, week 1 brought my record down to 5-10. I have absolutely no doubts in my mind that this record will turn around in no time.

Last season Ryan’s Ramble finished with over a 53% win percentage, and although I’ve never claimed to be an expert; winning is fun. Let’s turn things around ASAP, starting with a full 12-pick card for week 2 in college football.

If you are unfamiliar with the tier system, this is something new to Ryan’s Ramble this year essentially serving as a ranking system for my picks. Tier 3 picks have the lowest confidence and tier 1 are my absolute favorite bets (even though all of ‘em are winners).

Starting with tier 3, let’s ride:
