Welcome to the Predictem.com college football favorite of the week free picks page. Each week, we'll select one favored team against the spread in which we believe has the best chance of covering. While favorites really aren't our forte, we do still however expect to turn a profit for our readers by seasons end. Expect this pick to be posted by Friday afternoon each week.
Our goal: Winning with favorites is not easy. In all candidness we'd be happy to hit 56% on this page over the course of the season. That's still a hell of a lot better than many can do on their own, it's just not what we're best at. We really do prefer sticking with underdogs and/or totals whenever possible. Enjoy!
