Week 5 2018: #CFB Picks are graded; results are in!

Welcome back everyone.  We had some big games last night and some big results from our expert panel of predictors and prognosticators.  Let’s get right to it.

Winners this week included Andrea Adelson (11-2), Paul Finebaum (9-2), Kirk Herbstreit (12-4), Phil Steele (6-2 straight up, 5-3 ATS), Stanford Steve (5-1 ATS), Pat Forde (4-2 ATS), SVP (6-3 ATS), and Desmond Howard (12-5).  Scott Spreitzer, after a horrendous start to the year, booked a 3-0 week ATS on Dari & Mel picking games.  However, this week’s official win will go to Lou Holtz at 8-1 on his weekly picks.  Congratulations to Dr. Lou for smashing Mark May this week on the Crowd’s Line.

Losers this week included Chris Fallica (3-4 ATS) and Mark May (5-4), but our undisputed loss this week goes to Rufus Peabody, who after an incredible start to the season booked a 1-4 record against the spread yesterday.  He’s still way up on the year picking 65% against the spread, but that’s a tough week by anybody’s standards.

Lee Corso booked a great week at 14-3 but missed out on his headgear pick of Penn State over Ohio State.  Bear’s Bank went 1-2 this week as part of Fallica’s tough 3-4 week against the spread.  Special guest celebrity Keegan-Michael Key went 8-8, which continues the new trend of picking significantly more games than celebrities in the past.  @GamedayJen went 12-4 on the wek continuing to quietly book winners.  Everyone else is somewhere else in between so check out the results below to see how your favorite (or most hated) personality did this week.

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!
