Week 1 2017: #CFB Picks are graded; results are in!

Week 1 picks have been graded and the results are in.  The week 1 slate of games did not disappoint, especially the Sunday and Monday night games.  Let’s get right into winners and losers.

Winners this week were many in number, and included Desmond Howard (11-4 straight up, 3-2 ATS), Andrea Adelson (11-3), Stanford Steve (4-1 straight up, 3-1-1 ATS), Dusty Dvoracek (3-1 straight up, 3-1 ATS), Chris Fallica (8-2 straight up, 9-5 ATS), Bruce Feldman (10-3), and Marcus Spears (6-1).  However, this week’s undisputed winner was @GamedayJen, who declared war on the ESPN analysts after finishing 2nd place in last year’s rankings.  She showed up big in week 1 going 15-2 picking winners, so congratulations to @GamedayJen for the week 1 win!

Losers this week were in short supply with Booger McFarland posting a 5-4 record as our worst straight-up record of any note.  However, this week’s official loss is being credited by our scorekeeper to your boy Scott Van Pelt, who struggled this weekend going 0-4-1 ATS.

Coach Corso went 9-6 straight up and 3-2 ATS, and nailed TWO headgear picks to open the season in week 1.  Our special guest celebrity Sam Hunt set the bar pretty high for the season going 7-1.  Les Miles started out his game picking career with a nice 5-1 record, and since he is leaving ESPN after one week I have no idea if this also marks his retirement from predictions.

Everyone else is somewhere in between so check out the full slate of results below to find out how your favorite (or most hated) personality did this week!
