I hate to tell you this, but I think you're a prime candidate for the pick reversal strategy.

The reversal strategy has me to 9. But I think it may fall apart now.

But there were about three games that I shouldn't have flipped. Hmmmmmm. I would have gone 3-0.

I had a strong feeling AFA would cover against Michigan.
Shouldn't have flipped LSU vs Washington. Knew that.
And Texas Tech over Texas State...


If I would have kept those three, and flipped the rest????

It would be less embarrassing if I "forgot" to make my picks. Holy crap.

I think a good portion of my problem would be that I dont pay attention to the spread. I just pick who I think will win.

Looks like it will be 10 points. So my 100% Reverse strategy worked. If I hadn't reversed everything I would only have gotten 10 points.

Next time, use a dart board or flip a coin.


Looking at the standings, I think its fair to say that we aren't very good at this. 40 picks and only one of us ( yes its me...for now) has outperformed a coin toss....and even then, by only two picks....well within a coin toss's capability.

I did not think I could possibly do worse than I did last week. I proved myself wrong this week with an impressive 7 points.

Yes, picking winners is a lot easier w/o having to figure points! First week, I picked 11 winners, this week 8!

Does it get easier?

Just checked the match-ups for this week, and the thought crossed my mind that Yahoo has one evil bastard coming up with these games and point spreads.

LA-Monroe vs. Auburn is an interesting match up. Auburn is 16.5 point favorite.
