I got tied up in board meetings last week, it gets tough making as much dough as I do.
In Week 6, I cleared West Virginia over Texas straight up, adding $350 to my total (after subtracting the other two losses). So I sat at $300 coming into Week 7.
For Week 7 I'll spare you the details, but I picked (straight up) Miami, Utah, and Louisiana Tech. All covered, but none won. So -$3,000 from last week's total puts me at -$2,700. And 4-15 total. This isn't going well.
But this is a new week, and all I need is to hit one a few weeks in a row and I'm in the money.
Michigan State (+10, +300) at Michigan
has dominated this series. Michigan has beat up on bad teams, but not
won a quality game. State has had nothing but quality games. Too juicy
of a money line to pass up.
New Mexico (+10.5, +315) at Air Force
going to be a lot of running this game. A lot. Which makes things
even. Air Force has some non-quality losses (Navy, UNLV) while New
Mexico has more wins overall, and losses to ranked teams like Texas, Texas Tech,
and Boise State. A lot of money on that line, going with it.
Baylor (+11, +325) at Texas
one is personal. Texas defense really looks inept, I mean really. It's
going to be a track meet, so either team can win. And you're going to
give me 3:1 on the Bears. I'm taking it.
Back in the saddle, baby, I think this is a week I hit 2 of 3 and turn this ship around!
