Hey, check it out … football’s back!

BATSBY Sports offers its 15 most appealing betting picks for the upcoming football weekend (college and pro).

For those with short memories, undoubtedly wiped out by the COVID-19 shutdown, we enjoyed a scintillating overall record of 176-116-3 from last September to February (60.2 winning percentage), otherwise known as Year 1 of the BATSBY project.

And we fully expect to be similarly stellar in Year 2, which has already begun with a tangible bang! (Current winning rate: 60 percent.)
