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.

Washington State + 4
Miami, Fla. + 3 1/2
Navy + 28 1/2
GT + 6 1/2 (buy to 7)
Iowa State – 7
