We are heading into week 10 in the Westgate SuperContest and I sit at 26-19 or 57.77%. I slipped last week going 2-3. Carolina let me down, with their last drive of the game ending at the 1-yard line:(
In College football, I went 2-1 for the weekend. Losing with Mich St +14 and winning with W. Virginia +14 and Utah -21.5. That brings my season record in College football to 23-16-1 or 58.9%.
In the NFL for plays last week I went 1-1 with Atlanta +14 with an easy win and Cinci +10.5 getting blown out. So I sit 9-8 for NFL plays season to date.
In the all spread contest, I sit at 87-62 or 58.3%. That is picking every game against the spread:) I send out all of my picks to subscribers. I am in 6th place in the contest 4 pts out of first.
My picks this week in the Westgate NFL Contest are:
Tampa Bay +5.5
These are pretty much in the order I liked them at the time I placed them. Yes, I have Cinci again:) No doubt another blowout. I really do not pay attention to the names of the teams. I have noticed that it creates a bias that is hard to overcome. I just go with my methods.
The Westgate top 5 has been sinking finally. The went 1-3-1 last week and now stand at 22-26-2.
The top 5 this week are:
I am with them on Houston and fading NE and the Jets.
The bottom 5 this week are:
I am on Cinci one of the bottom 5.
All in all, I like my picks:)
As to political odds:
I cashed out of my Louisiana Governors race last week for a nice gain. ( A good move since the Republican lost last night)
I laid 65/35 on the Republican winning the KY Governor’s race. The odds are now 72/28 ( I also cashed out of this one early with a gain. Republican lost there also)
I laid 87/13 on the Republican winning the MS Governor’s race. I won this race.
I made a wager on whether Giuliani will be federally indicated by 12/31/20. I got 40/60 on this wager. The odds right now are 39/61. About where I got in. I wanted to get a 10 to 20% gain and cash out. But so far have not had the opportunity. Once the IG report hits, and Durham gets moving I suspect I will get that opportunity.
Some of the odds to watch if your interested in Trump’s removal are:
Odds of Trump being impeached his first term: 77/23 ( I expect this will most likely happen). Although the way the hearings have been going I find it hard to believe Dems in states that Trump won are going to political suicide and go over the cliff with Schiff. We will see:)
Odds of a Senate Conviction: 17/83 against. This has been getting lower and lower. This is really the one to watch. If it starts shooting up its time to give it some consideration. As long as it stays this low, forget the media. Just watch the odds.
Trump to get the Republican Nomination: 80/20 It would not be this high if there was much of a chance the Senate would remove him. Another one to watch.
You know things are getting rough for the Dems when some of my die-hard liberal relatives are calling me and saying that maybe Trump is the correct choice:) Two years ago they all thought Trump was the Anti Christ!
Now that is not to say that the Republican Senate might snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in 2020. They are known for that. The Establishment Republicans in the Senate are some of the most pathetic bunch I have seen. The reason, no term limits. You cannot have lifers in the Senate.
They become corrupt, entitled, and as Barr put it so aptly in his speech yesterday, they are encroaching on the powers of the executive branch.
If you have not heard his speech take an hour out of your schedule or listen to it while you’re handicapping today. You will learn something.
I have neither an ideology to burden me, nor do I rely upon or listen to the mainstream media. And for that matter there are few at Fox News I rely on either. I have a handful of investigative journalists that have the highest integrity, are truth-tellers, and have no political agenda. They are not easy to find, but I have a handful that gets everything right on the money.
I also rely on several constitutional law experts of the highest integrity, and last but not least my analytical skills. Now, saying that I do not win every wager I make:) But my win rate is very high on political wagers and most wagers for that matter.
