How'd I Do?

Counting pushes as “wins” I finished 152 – 100 in picking college football games against the spread this season. That is right at 60%. Not bad at all, certainly, depending on the odds for each pick [-110, 115, etc.] and even looking at the pushes that will easily make you money at any book.

What is disappointing is that I suffered such a huge drop off over the second half of the season. Through the first seven weeks or so it wasn’t unreasonable to imagine me finishing at 70%, which would’ve been pretty impressive. But weeks 9, 10, & 11 killed me.

My bowl picks will be confidence picks (merely who wins) and not against the spread.
