PiRate Picks For College and Pro Football–September 20, 2012

We are so glad that we have heard from so many of you telling us that you have followed our expert advice concerning our picks against the spread so far this year.

 

You may ask to what advice we refer.  The advice that you should not use the advice given here to make any potential investments in Las Vegas, Reno, Costa Rica, or Antigua.

 

Last week, our college selections finished a feeble 5-6-0, giving us a three-week record of 15-18-0.  Every week, one game has missed by less one point or a half-point, and we have been one game under .500 each week.  Oh, how frustrating it is.  The good thing is that one strong week will erase the three bad weeks, if we can get going and come up with a strong week.  We found 15 selections we liked this week, so a 9-6 week gets us back to .500 and a 10-5 week gets us back to square with the vig.

 

As for our NFL picks, we were even worse last week.  Our only solace is that in our little contest of 37 players, we lost less than 33 of our rivals.  Our regular picks finished 2-5 last week, giving us a two-week total of 8-14.  Gag!  Our contest picks were even worse—1-4-0 for a net loss of 35K.  For the season, our contest picks are 3-7-0 and our pretend account is down to $953,200.  We remain optimistic, especially since it is just pretend money.
