It has been a wild ride so far as I continue to remain above water in this contest of 282 entries. After fourteen days, I’m tied to eighth place, a half-point from seventh, 1 match from two points from first, that pays 40 percent of the pot.
I’ve had some ups and downs, and some really lucky breaks.
In Week 1, I went 6-1 however my loser was Nebraska -4 at Colorado. The Cornhuskers were up 17-0 at the half but gave up 24 in the fourth quarter and still had an opportunity in OT but head coach Scott Frost’s play calls were dreadful and the Buffs pulled out a 34-31 OT win. This craziness prevented me from starting the contest 7-0.
In Week 2, I went 3-1 with faculty dogs which included taking West Virginia +6.5 at house vs NC State along with the Eagles of Eastern Michigan +7 against Big Ten college Illinois. Did both cover but they won straight up. You do a bit of confidence to get when you’re pulling games out directly up like that.
In Week 3, it was a 2-5 overall beatdown, my sole shedding week. I had many losses per week and they did just this, although I did predict Appalachian State to win with a field goal vs UNC. I touted Michigan over Wisconsin per week and this game was a loser from the beginning. Afterward I had the Falcons +2 from the Colts and then they shed by three despite outgaining the Colts in each stat except the one who counts and that’s the scoreboard.
I was really optimistic with the Bills +7 at home versus the Patriots and a great deal happened in that match and that I was lucky to pay that match by a point.
In college I went 4-0-1 in Week 5 and that included Oregon State as a dog that won up along with Stanford as a puppy that won straight up and both teams won by double digits. WOW… I really have to pat myself on the back for those two Pac-12 beauties. As I got a touchdown with 10 minutes left in the Texas 12-yard line on fourth-and-10 Additionally, I pulled a tie +11 with all West Virginia.
In Week 6, I dropped in a blowout and have learned the hard way to never bet against the Wisconsin Badgers again. I’m and halftime did the two games. Wisconsin may be the best team in the nation if you do so and sleeping on them at this stage is just plain silly. Aside from this, I moved 6-1 ATS for the third time. I went at the contest taking the Houston Texans to 2-0. I won together +5 versus the Chiefs and at Week 1 if they had been +7 in the Big Easy against the Saints.
So all in all, I am still in it at 28-13-1 and may just hope I create intelligent picks and if I use the drive, throw a coin or throw darts to make themit doesn’t matter as long as I continue to be to the right side more often than not.
