Week 9 (Thursday October 29, 2015 thru Saturday October 31, 2015) SEASON COMMENTS This is an unusual year in that 1/2 of the weeks have been breakeven in terms of games. The remaining 4 weeks include 3 really healthy winning weeks and just 1 hard losing week. Regardless, as one professional bookie stated, everyone he knows at this point in the season is a loser. We are the only ones he knows that are winnersRead More

Week 8 – Treading Even More Water

No comments.

This time of year sees coaching decisions that defy the point spread. Cases in point are huge favorites Baylor and Marshall. Baylor scores 35 quick points in the first quarter and half towards covering a big 35.5 point spread. Briles sees he will easily win the game. He goes conservative in the rain scoring just 7 in the second half while allowing an outclassed Iowa State to score 27 total. The winner was never inRead More

After 7 weeks we have recorded 3 big winning weeks, 3 break even weeks, and only 1 losing week. In the bigger scheme of things, especially when it comes to winning, we are ahead of 99% of the pack. Remember, most players are losers by this time of the year and we still have the magical 60% goal in sight. WEEK 8 – PREDICTIONS WE HAVE 6 TOTAL PICKS WITH 1 OF THOSE WAITING FORRead More

Week 7 – Treading More Water

No comments.

This week is telling in that is shows how hard it is to stick with a methodology that identifies a situation to win in contrast to a point spread that was obviously questionable. It started with Kentucky. Why the 2 point spread when Auburn is the favorite and Kentucky, although now competitive, has yet to prove anything when it comes to beating the big boys? Kentucky lost by 3 when they should have been gettingRead More

JUST 6 PICKS VERSUS THE 13 PICKS (9 Wins 4 Losses) LAST WEEK. This week will officially put Colorado State’s season in the tank. Air Force is playing them in-state just up the road and should win in a close one. TCU’s Gary Patterson takes great pride in his reputation as one of the best defensive coaches in the business. Look for the defensive embarrassments of the last 2 weeks to be repaired in aRead More

Week 6 – The Great Breakout Week!

No comments.

When the season starts you look for validation of your methodology, primarily by having consistent good weeks.  This year started right at 7-3 for the 1st week but went stale. Two weekends were break-even at 4-4 and 5-5.  And our one bad week at 3-8 was followed by a complete rebound to 8-3.  Overall a 50% record and treading water since the 1st week of the season. And then Week 6 and the worry of which directionRead More

Week 5 – Treading Water

No comments.

In our Week 5 pre-game Newsletter we identified some suspects with conventional thinking. This was one of those times when conventional thinking ruled. We thought Mississippi favored on the road by a touchdown was “suspect”, result, they were completely embarrassed by halftime losing big in the end. Duke as a 4.5 point favorite, “another suspect”, played to 9-7 in a rain game, Mother Nature heavily influenced the scoring in this loss. South Carolina never threatenedRead More

(Thursday October 8, 2015 thru Saturday October 10, 2015) LUCKY NUMBER 13. That’s right, we have 13 picks this week. Usually our methodology experiences a reduction in selections as conference play gets underway, but not this week. We start with a Thursday night Washington@USC game. USC giving -17 is a lot against a PAC 12 opponent that has an excellent head coach and has played well against solid opponents. On Friday we have Marshall givingRead More

WEEK 5 – COMMENTS Again, we have Favorite selections that conventional wisdom flat rejects. Iowa State shouldn’t be favored over anyone by 16 points, but favored they are against Kansas. Mississippi favored by over a touchdown on the road against Florida is suspect. Duke, another team that shouldn’t be favored based on history. On the Underdog side, South Carolina and Arkansas have opened their seasons poorly, and appear to be getting limited points on theRead More
