We are right in the middle of the week 4 games. I am watching several of the games in shock and excitment as we speak. I am not doing so well, as many of my teams didn't cover the points spread. So regardless of if a team won the game, I lose the pick, and kick myself for not taking the opposing team. Out of 47 games this week - as of this moment 20 are completed, and I am 10/20. hopefully the next 27 games go better for me. To rub salt in my own wounds I will share some of my wrong picks :
Oklahoma vs Cincinnati - spread was 15.5 in OK favor, and they won by 3 - I should have known better.
Iowa vs Ball state - spread 28 in favor of Iowa. I had no doubts Iowa would win, but didn't they would cover. final score? 45-0 - Leaves me feeling like a pretty big goose egg myself!
And just to round out the humiliation with a good even number 3 -
One I NEVER saw coming, and apparently neither did they. The look on Coach Browns face was pretty priceless.
Texas vs UCLA - spread was 16. Should have been a cakewalk for Texas.
UCLA 34 Texas 12
I am off to see if my teams can salvage what little picking dignity I have left.
