In addition, you will find SVP’s betting history from the last two years along with a week-to-week look at his picks from this season.

SVP Picks for College Football Week 8

Each Thursday Night on “SportsCenter with Scott Van Pelt”, SVP provides his favorite picks for the week ahead in college football. He gives a handful of picks against the spread, some reasoning, and a very entertaining joke or two about himself.

Like last week, SVP is on vacation so there was not be a “Winners” segment on the midnight SportsCenter. With that said, SVP provided his betting picks on social media while away.
