BATSBY Sports offers its 15 most appealing picks for the upcoming football weekend.

For starters, BATSBY had been remarkably consistent for the first two months, touting SIX consecutive weeks of a 9-6 combined record.

In the aftermath …

**BATSBY Sports came back to Earth somewhat six weeks ago, churning out a painfully mediocre 7-7-1 mark.

**However, the successive five weekends have been a collective joyride, posting nine wins at least four times and going 45-30 overall during this prolific stretch.

BOTTOM LINE: If you had been riding our money-line picks from Day 1 … the available monies for holiday shopping should be plentiful, to say the least. Enjoy!

Through the years, Mr. Clemons has been a key figure with numerous blue-chip sports/media brands, namely the Detroit Lions, Sports Illustrated, FOX Sports, Bleacher Report and the NBC/Universal family. With Sports Illustrated (2006-11), Clemons served a triple role with SI.com‘s heralded football coverage—editing Peter King’s famed ‘Monday Morning Quarterback’ column, penning award-winning pieces for NFL and then writing/narrating scripted videos within the NFL and baseball realms. In 2013, Clemons’ first year with the company, FOX Sports South enjoyed a monumental increase of approximately 34 million Web hits in a 12-month cycle—merely posting 11 million hits the previous year. 

Then, over a two-month span in 2014, FOX Sports South amassed 19.5 million Web hits—a 60-day record for any FOX affiliate. And in 2015, Clemons claimed the aforementioned Cynopsis Media award on FOX Sports’ behalf, the company’s only national writing award during that period. Clemons, a graduate of Michigan State University  and Wayne State University, has been an on-camera Web-TV host for Sports Illustrated, Bleacher Report and FOX Sports. In 2015, he also became the first-ever sports journalism professor at Kennesaw State University in suburban Atlanta.
