Weekly Recap & Picks: An NCAAF $hit Sandwich

Welcome back to BTJ. Let’s jump right into a very abbreviated recap of the week. I started out the week with an Eagles +180 moneyline victory. I ended it with a Saints +130 moneyline victory. Everything in between was hot garbage; I dropped every NCAAF moneyline dog pick and a couple of NFL ones. Well, not everything. I was sitting on Detroit at a healthy +260 when the Lions scored a TD with 2:26 to go up three. I was still sitting on that bet (that’s how bets work) when the Chiefs had 4th and forever on their side of the field a minute later. At no point during that time did I feel comfortable. Pat Mahomes is the scariest thing an NFL gambler can see on the other side of his bet. It’s terrifying.

Bucky was looking pretty good after a winning record on Saturday but went huge on a slate of NFL games that he felt doubly confident about and lost them all. So, at least there is that. After 5 weeks of picking, I’m only down 1% to the book on NFL but a whopping 29% on NCAAF (this erratic dog moneyline strategy can turn on you quickly). Whereas Bucky is down about 6% in NCAAF and 25.78% in NFL. You can always check how we are faring against the juice and each other in this Google doc.
