After a west-coast showdown on Thursday Night Football, Week 15 in the NFL is underway, and Week 16 of college football begins this weekend. In college, conference championship weekend is upon us which makes it one of the most popular betting weekends of the year for college football. For SVP, this means he would be making quite a few picks against the spread for both college football and the NFL on his Thursday Night SportsCenter. The problem? SVP tested positive for the coronavirus, so he does not have a show for the time being.

ESPN’s SportsCenter with Scott Van Pelt is one of the most popular shows on night television, and his “Winner$” segment is one of the most popular segments. He is by no means a professional handicapper, but SVP seems to make some good picks from time to time and always provides entertainment. Here at ActionRush, we have tracked his picks for the last two years for each and every selection against the spread.

SVP had eight winners last week, following a week where he had 10. Here is a look at SVP’s picks for this week in CFB and NFL against the spread would be, if he had a show.

As SVP does each and every week, he would make his NFL picks after recommending his favorite CFB selections for the weekend at hand. It’s rare that SVP picks more than a handful of NFL games, but with the CFB season ending will that change? We won’t find out this year.
