Saturday turned out to be a great day for College football. 4 plays going 4-0 with 3 leans going 2-1.
MLB went 1-1.
Today so far there are 3 plays. Two in MLB and one in the NFL.
Our two 1 unit plays in college football were:
Arizona St +14.5 winning the game outright 37-35. Rutgers covered +11 17-27.
Our 1/2 unit plays were Idaho +4 winning outright 29-23 and Kentucky covering +2.5 27-28.
Our leans were NC State +11.5 winning outright 27-21, Buffalo -1.5 winning 34-31 and San Jose (the only loser) +2 losing 10-61.
Our two MLB plays were Pitt +111 winning 11-6 and Detroit +156 losing 4-10.
Now it’s on to the NFL football today. I sit at 7-3 heading into Week 3 in the Westgate NFL Supercontest with today’s picks:
For the first time in the contest, I had a decision to make for pick #5. It was between the Chargers and Arizona. I finally settled on Arizona but it was a tough decision.
The Westgate NFL Football top 5 picks:
While the bottom 5 is:
The top 5 went 3-2 last week bringing their record to a stellar 3-7 for the first two weeks. The bottom 5 went 2-3 which is now 5-5 for the first 2 weeks.
I am not fading any of the top 5 this week which is a bit of a concern.
Note, that 3 of the top 5 picks are big public favorites. While the other 2 are with the public also.
As long as that continues there is value in the contest. While being contrary the public is not as good as it used to be, it’s still the way to go while using other handicapping techniques.
After the first 2 weeks, there are 40 entrants with an 8-2 record or better. So I sit at 1 pt off of 40th with a slew of other entrants🙂
Not a bad spot after week 2. A few more good weeks and I will be in the money. Of course, my optimism is endless!
Good Luck Today
