Still Above Water


Last Week was 23-19, which is just barely above the break-even (22-20 would have been break even). That would be +5% for the week and along with the 29-15 in Week 1, now +35% for the year. I'm satisfied. Let's see how long my luck holds out.

Not as confident this week. Among other things, I did it in a hurry; who knows how many typos are in here!<p>

Couple of house-keeping things. Didn't do this in time to predict Thursday and Friday games, obviously, but also didn't do it in time to get odds off the USA Today page, so this week I used the first entry on the Rivals/Yahoo odds page, labeled Oddsmakers.com.
