Week 10 – Finally a Winning Week

No comments.

Finally, a normal winning week, 10 Wins versus 6 Losses, a 62.5% win rate. Those numbers work, but for the year we are still in the red due to the 10% house commission on wins. Our Favorites were 5 Wins, 3 Losses, and a Push. South Florida is living up to really low standards, being one of the teams that had reasonable expectations in the Big East, but losing everything in sight. They were theRead More

Week 9 – Lot of Nothing

No comments.

We were looking for a winner and again, lots of work for nothing, still paying the bookie while hanging around the 50/50 mark for wins and losses. Again, another week with a lot of picks coming from the base numbers. We see what is shaping up for the season, and it is so far from our pre-season goals. But one thing for sure, the same situational specifications were clearly defined before the season and weRead More

Week 8 – After the Week 7 debacle

No comments.

After the Week 7 debacle anything resembling improvement would be a welcome respite. The week ended 10 wins versus 11 losses, a net loser but on the lesser end. The season is officially declared a struggle at this point. There are some clear indications regarding situational outcomes this season versus the same situation in previous seasons. And those indications include the base numbers specifying a high number of picks which is somewhat of an oddityRead More

Week 7 – This is why they call it gambling

No comments.

The absolutes came to light. What can really go in the right direction sometimes has a tendency to correct itself, and correct it did. We had only one favorite, that being Oklahoma University covering as a –3 point favorite. But everyone knows OU will blow out Texas as Mack Brown doesn’t utilize talent as well as Bob Stoops, so our 1 winning favorite was not a difficult pick. All 7 remaining favorites either lost outrightRead More

Week 6 – A substantial step forward

No comments.

8 Wins versus 5 Losses (61.5%) and back to the winning side of the ledger. We started on Thursday night with USC giving Utah 2 straight touchdowns on the first minutes of the game, and knowing the –13.5 USC spread was lost at that point. But that could not hold back the underdogs this week, who brought in a 6-2 record. Confirming there are gambling spirits, our New Mexico ST pick started a 10.5 underdogRead More

Week 5 – Patience my subscribers

No comments.

The glass is half full. One of the factors we noted last year, and again this year, is that an off week usually comes close to 50%. We looked back at the 14 weeks of last year and the first 5 of this year and here is what we see. There were 10 weeks we won outright, 3 times at 50/50 won/lost, and 6 losing weeks, none more that 2 games net down. And lastRead More
