Week 11 2018: #CFB Picks are graded; results are in!

Week 11 picks and predictions are graded an the results are in.  Let’s dive right in.

Winners this week included David Pollack (5-0), Tim Tebow (6-1), Mark May (8-2), Desmond Howard (11-3), Lou Holtz (7-2), Stewart Mandel (8-3 straight up), Kirk Herbstreit (11-4), Chris Doering (5-2), and Marcus Spears (5-2).  In fact, I only had one lone expert in the loss column this week picking straight up, and it was Joel Klatt (1-2).  We had lots of ATS winners too, including Brett McMurphy (6-1 ATS), Dusty Dvoracek (4-1 ATS), Rufus Peabody (3-1-1 ATS), Dave Portnoy (9-5-1 ATS), Dan Katz (9-5-2 ATS), and lots more.  I’m giving this week’s official win as a split decision between Paul Finebaum (10-0) and @GamedayJen (13-1), so congratulations to both.

Losers were few and far between, so Pat Forde takes it this week at 2-4 against the spread.

Lee Corso went 9-4 on his picks this week, including a win with Clemson over Boston College in the headgear pick.  Special guest celebrity Chris O’Donnell had a great week at 10-3, but hopefully the Chainsmokers will be available again soon.  Bear’s Bank went 1-2 on the week, with Fallica going 3-4 ATS overall.

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