Our First 60% + Week of the Season

This has been a mediocre season for our PiRate Picks so far this year.  It took this long to finish with a week above 60%.  Our selections last week went 7-4 for 63.6% against the spread, bringing our year to date percentage to “not as bad as last week, but too awful to call mediocre.”


Maybe we have finally caught on to the trends this year, or maybe we were just lucky last week.  On the other hand, both the regular college and pro PiRate Ratings are faring quite well against the other major computer ratings publicly published.


In college, we are tied for first in the Prediction Tracker, and the other ratings in the first place tie with the Official Vegas Line.  So, we will continue to rely on college Money Lines in our selections here.


We are going with 13 separate selections, with the number 13 pick being a special one at better than even odds.  The last selection will return $118 in winnings for every $100 invested at the Las Vegas Sports Books—if it wins.
