As the NFL and college football seasons rage on, the ever-popular Scott Van Pelt continues to make his picks on SportsCenter. After Falcons and Panthers on Thursday Night Football and a few college football games on the night, SVP made his picks on the midnight edition of SportsCenter. Each and every week, SVP makes his selections in a segment called “Winner$”. We have tracked SVP’s picks and history for the last two seasons, and he brings some winners, no pun intended.

While SVP isย not a professional bettor, he has made some correct picks so far on the season. Nevertheless, SVP is one of the more entertaining personalities around and his “Winner$” segment is amongst the most popular on ESPN. Here is a look at his Week 9 CFB picks, Week 8 NFL picks, how he has fared this season and more.

Last week, SVP was terrific again. He went 4-2 with his CFB picks, and 1-0 on the NFL side. This brings him to 22-18 on the season across both sports, per SVP’s broadcast.
