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.

Week 10 2018: #CFB Picks are graded; results are in!

Its time for the week 10 results from our expert panel of predictors and prognosticators.

Winners this week included Paul Finebaum (6-1), Pat Forde (5-1 ATS), Kirk Herbstreit (11-3), Mark May (7-2), Phil Steele (7-5), Brett McMurphy (6-1 ATS), Lou Holtz (8-1), Rufus Peabody (4-1 ATS), Danny Kanell (6-2 ATS), The Bear (5-2 ATS), Stanford Steve (4-2 ATS), and Rick Neuheisel (7-3).  However this week’s big win is going to go to Dusty Dvoracek at 5-0 against the spread on his picks this week.

Losers this week include Marcus Spears (2-3), Tim Cowlishaw (1-4 ATS), Scott Spreitzer (1-4 ATS), Stewart Mandel (3-8 ATS), Dave Portnoy (5-9 ATS), Dan Katz (5-9 ATS), and Bruce Feldman (5-6 ATS).  Cowlishaw and Spreitzer can share this week’s loss in my book.

Coach Corso had a great week at 12-2 on his picks, including winning his headgear pick Alabama over LSU.  Special guest celebrity Alex Bregman went 7-6 on his picks this week, but I honestly would have guessed he did worse based on how many games he faded the Gameday crew.  @GamedayJen was near the top this week at 14-3, continuing her dominance this season.  The Bear went 1-2 on the week but still posted a winning week at 5-2 overall against the spread.  Everyone else is somewhere in between, so check out the full grades below to see how your favorite (or most hated) personality did this week.
