A tough day for us on Saturday going 0-4. 0-2 in MLB and 0-2 in College Football.
The only positive, if you want to call it that, is that they were all 1/2 unit plays.
But it was one of those days as I also put out 2 leans that both lost in college football!
So rather than dwelling on a bad day, let’s get on to the NFL.
I am sitting at 15-10 going into week 6 of the Westgate NFL Supercontest. 60% is not a bad spot to be but with 2000 entrants I need to get moving to have a shot at the top 10:)
First, you will need around 67% or even a bit higher. And to get the money I suspect over 62% by the final week.
First right now is at 80% and 10th is 76%!!!
My picks this week for the Westgate NFL Supercontest are(in the order I liked them at the time)
I had a tough time on pick 5. It was between 3 games. New Orleans, Cleveland, and the Chargers.
I spent a lot of time mulling over which of the 3 to pick. I finally decided on Cleveland despite the public % was sitting at 42% at the time.
Then I got to the Westgate, went up to place my picks, and changed my mind at the last second picking the Chargers, At that time the line had not come out yet and I thought it would be closer to a pick game. I guessed wrong, but the line is now +3 in most spots so the pick is not that bad getting the hook.
The Westgate NFL Supercontest top 5 went back to form last week going 1-4 bring their record to 10-15, the exact opposite of mine:)
The top 5 in the Westgate NFL Supercontest picks are:
I am fading 3 of these top 5 picks. Just where I like it unless of course, I am fading them all:)
The bottom 5 this week is:
I am on 1 of the bottom 5. I suspect Oakland is here because of the late line on the game. Many bettors like to see some kind of history of the line and movement before turning in their plays.
So far today I have sent out 2 plays in the NFL. A one unit play and a 1/2 unit play.
Let me also mention the NHL is in full swing now. Plays there start picking up toward the end of October. We have had a smattering of plays but for the most part, we should get daily plays in about a week or so.
And then the NBA is finally here beginning in a few days. Typically again it takes a week or so before plays pick up there. The NBA, however, is the least volume of plays of all the sports I handicap in direct contrast to College hoops that is the biggest volume and for the last several years the most profitable by far.
Good Luck Today
