Week 12 2018: #CFB Picks are graded; results are in!

The week 12 college football grades are in.  Let’s examine.

Winners this week include Andrea Adelson (9-2), Lou Holtz (8-2), Phil Steele (12-3 straight up, 13-6 ATS), Kirk Herbstreit (11-4), Rick Neuheisel (7-3), Rufus Peabody (4-1 ATS), and Scott Spreitzer (4-1 ATS).  However, after splitting a weekly win last week, @GamedayJen sits atop the throne going 13-3 on picks this week.  That’s two in a row and three overall this season, so I expect her to get called up to ESPN any day.

Losers this week include Scott Van Pelt (3-5 ATS), Dan Katz (4-6 ATS), Stanford Steve (2-3 ATS), and Brett McMurphy (3-4 ATS).  However this week’s loss definitely goes to Bruce Feldman at 5-6 straight up; 3-7 ATS.

Lee Corso posted a big win at 12-3, including a win with this headgear pick UCF over Cincinnati.  Special guest celebrity Maury Povich had a nice winning week at 10-4.  The Bear had a losing week 3-4 ATS, but Bear’s Bank went 2-1 on the week.  Everyone else was somewhere in between to check out the results below to see how your favorite (or most hated) personality did this week.

Week 8 2018: #CFB Picks are graded; results are in!

Welcome back everyone.  We saw great football action on Saturday and great performances from our panel of expert pickers and prognosticators last week, so let’s dive right in.

Winners this week included Andrea Adelson (6-1), Stanford Steve (4-1 ATS, he’s on fire), Chris Doering (5-1), Pat Forde (4-1 ATS), Kirk Herbstreit (11-3), Lou Holtz (7-2), Paul Finebaul (7-2), Desmond Howard (11-5), Brett McMurphy (4-2 ATS), and Phil Steele (continuing to light it up at 14-7 ATS, 13-2 straight up).  However, this week’s undisputed winner is none other than our own @GamedayJen who showed up with a huge performance on Saturday going 15-1 on her picks!  Pretty impressive stuff compared to all these people who get paid to pick games for a living.

Losers this week include Pete Thamel (2-4 ATS), Jeff Ma (2-3 ATS), Rufus Peabody (2-3 ATS), Danny Kanell (3-4 ATS), your boy SVP (4-5 ATS), and Bruce Feldman (5-6 ATS).  Nobody had an actual losing week picking straight up, but a notable performance was Mark May (5-4).

Coach Corso got back on track with the headgear pick going with Washington State over Oregon, and put up an impressive 13-2 week on the regular picks.  Chris Fallica went 4-4 against the spread this week, but Bear’s Bank was 3-0 this week!  Special guest celebrity Drew Bledsoe went 11-3 on the week, proving that he does indeed know more about football than the Chainsmokers.

Everyone else finished somewhere in the middle, so check out the full grades below to see how your favorite (or most hated) personality did this week.
