Lest this blog become a broken record, I will spare you the recounting of how my +660 Virginia Tech play looked like a winner until Notre Dame’s final 87-yard drive. How the Hokies had a 90% win probability with 1:45 left. How Notre Dame’s TD was responsible for a 3.8 unit turn of fortune that, coupled with losing every bet but Boston College’s moneyline, sent me into Sunday down 2.45 units on the weekend.
But a funny thing happened on the way to Monday – all four of my Sunday bets, including 3 dogs, hit, pushing me to +3.25 on the weekend and down to -5.76% of units wagered on the year overall. The Chargers (+175) and Ravens (+170) both came up huge against teams Vegas thought were better, and the latter provided the rarest of gambling experiences: sitting through an extended period of play knowing that your bet against the Pats is almost certain to hit, and getting to watch them stew in it. From the bottom of my wallet and heart, thank you, Lamar Jackson.
Bucky had a strong Sunday, as well, going 3-0-1. He texted me claiming he’d picked up the W on the Seahawks instead of a push, but the text with his picks tells a different story. That, coupled with his near-push of a Saturday and a Thursday night loss on the Niners put him up 1.77 units on the week and down 11.25% on the year. We’ve both been considerably better in NFL so far than NCAAF, with Yours Truly even venturing into beating the juice territory at +11% on pro ball.
