It was bound to happen…a bad week in football. Ncaa football went 2-3 and although there were no picks(except carolina +7 if you unlucky enough to find it) I went 1-3-1 in the Hilton and 1-4 in Leroys. My top pick got blown out the second week in a row. Although that is not unusual since it happened 4 or 5 times last year.

Both Miami and Carlina never really had a chance to cover. Detroit hung on to cover..and Buffalo and Phil could of gone either way at the end…just happened to go against us in both games. I had been getting all the breaks..but this weekend it just didnt happen that way.

The good news is I am just past the half way mark in the Nfl and at 60% in both contests. Still not a bad spot to be…..but the cushion i had is now gone.

I had to laugh a bit..but the run before this weekend was so good in football it reminded me of the 12-0 run in baseball betting the dogs last may. After that streak a good handicapper I know brought in an article entitled “reversion to the mean”…Believe me when I tell you…thats a concept all should be aware of:) its just a question of where the mean is…..and I can assure you its not at 65% on football:)

Now onto today……nothing in the nhl or nba…but the game tonight in the nfl is getting close to a play.

The line started out at -3.5 -108 and is now at -6 -114. Its at 7 at a few places. There are no injuries I know of for the line to have moved this far. If we get a widely available number of 7 Cinci is a play.

I will update if that happens.

Good Luck Today

    Hi Rick,

    out of the guys you're up against in the Hilton contest is their any that you admire/respect,or any that you think are just lucky. You mention Fezzik quite a bit but a lot of internet reports seems to be quite uncomplimentary about his picks and the way he goes about his business. Just wondered what you thought?

    Keep up the awesome work buddy.
