The Pi-Rate Ratings

Selections Against The Spread: 12/19/2015

Filed under: PiRate Picks_College & Pro — Tags: , — piratings @ 6:37 am

With the college bowl games beginning Saturday, our selection strategy changes somewhat.  We have never been a fan of Money Line Parlays in bowl games, upsets increase in December.


Thus, we will go with more straight selections and only play a minimal number of NFL Money Line Parlays.  It has been a very good year for our Money Line Parlays, as our theoretical Return on Investment has been 47.82% to this point.  According to our friend in the know, had we actually made these plays for real in most Las Vegas books with maximum wagering allowed, some of the books would have invited us to take our business elsewhere.


Remember, we do not recommend actually using these picks as your principal source of research.  We have nothing to lose by issuing these selections, since it is the mathematical interest that keeps us having fun.
