Week 4 2017: #CFB picks are graded; results are in!

Week 4 picks are graded a little late, but here we are with some results.

Winners include Desmond Howard (11-5 straight up, 1-0 ATS), Andrea Adelson (8-2), Dusty Dvoracek (3-0 straight up, 3-1 ATS), Jesse Palmer (8-2), Phil steel (16-4 straight up, 13-11-1 ATS), and SVP (5-3 ATS).  However this week’s win is being credited to Chris Fallica who went 7-3 straight up, 8-2 ATS, and 0-1 ML.  Pretty impressive stuff picking ATS this week from the Bear, and he was already having a good year against the bookies!

Losers this week were in short supply, but mediocre performances were turned in by Joey Galloway (5-5) and Pat Forde (5-4).  Our loser this week has to unfortunately be Dari Nowkhah, who picked 4 outright upsets in his games and went 0-4.  Sorry Dari.

Coach Corso went 7-6 straight up, and 1-0 ATS.  He didn’t have a headgear pick since they were live from NYC with no home teams to pick.  I liked the NYC Gameday, but come on Corso!  We need headgear!  Special guest celebrity picker Keegan-Michael Key (or was it James Franklin?) went 8-4 this week, bringing his lifetime record to 16-5 after two appearances.  @GamedayJen is back in the win column at 9-6, and I expect big things from her this weekend.  Everyone else is somewhere in between so check out the full slate of results below to see how your favorite (or most hated) personality did this week!
