The heavy favorites weren’t so favorable this weekend. So unfavorable that I was looking like #50 pictured above by the end of Sunday.
But like the great Rocky Balboa said, “It ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.”
Record for the Week = 2-5 or 2/7 correct or 29% correct.
Room for Improvement:
College football in general. L’s kept flashing up across the board. Heck, 20 point favorite Virginia Tech didn’t even win the game let alone cover the spread.
The over of 53.5 in Memphis vs. Tulane lost, Clemson -17.5 lost, VT -19.5 lost and Ohio State -10 lost. The takeaway here is to bet less heavy favorites next week.
In the NFL, my Green Bay -4 pick lost as well. Shame on me for going against Dak and Zeke. Side note: if that win didn’t solidify Tony Romo not getting his job back then I don’t know what else Dak has to do.
Sun., Oct. 16:
New England Patriots -8.5 vs. Cincinnati Bengals: This pick didn’t look good in the first half, but Brady and Belichick made the right adjustments to pull away in the second half for Tom’s homecoming.
Detroit Lions vs. LA Rams over 43: This was my only slam dunk of the weekend. Case Keenum had one of the best games he’ll ever have, and the scoreboard just kept rising.
Total Week Tally: You would have lost $336 this weekend if you followed the above picks exactly.
Week 1 = +480 – Week 2 = -336 – Total = +144
