    ATS Picks 57-31-0 64.77% +10370 1 of 27
    O/U Picks 40-38-3 51.28% +760 11 of 27
    All Picks 97-69-3 58.43% +11130 1 of 27

    I'm shocked I was 57-31 ATS, that's pretty amazing. I have bet off-and-on for many years, don't think I ever had that success rate. My wife asked me, within the last few days, if I've been betting (based on some mail I've received, plus I keep buying coins since I have a little cash) lately? Which was a profound "no," because I haven't for several years. Now I do dabble in some pools. Ran a pool for The Players Championship this week and participate in others, but no big money involved.
    We're doing a bracket pool for $10, last year I ran it and paid $630 to my buddy that won. Calipari coming on after this commercial, should b interesting.

    Just to be clear, Iíve never gambled on anything in my life. So when I started playing this ACC degenerate gambling game, I found out was really good at it. In fact after winning again last year my wife suggested maybe I should move to Las Vegas. I didnít. And after this yearĎs lackluster results, Iím glad we didnít make the move. 😎

    Depending on the size of the bets one won versus those lost...to break even over time requires winning something between 52-53% correct. Anything over 60% is fantastic of course, and Bob Green would've been way ahead of the house at his 64% or thereabouts...on a pretty good volume of betting. That was quite impressive Bob.

    I've won money - real money - in the past...but with very low volume betting...when I just thought a line was way out of whack. I may go weeks or months between times I notice one of those.

    Anyway, kudos to Taylor for a nice win...Bob for a ridiculous percentage...and Jason for organizing this. Very very fun.

    Congrats, duketaylor, on a wonderful season and winning this contest, the most prestigious of the three annual majors!

    Props also to rasputin! To bet every game and end up at 58.6% is no small feat!

    Thanks, Jason, for running the contest, and let's get started on the NCAA tournament!

    Let's do it, brother.

    Some of us perhaps are degenerate enough to play the play-in games that begin on Tuesday.

    AGREED...this was so much fun during the season, it will be a blast with the quick changes of March Madness...the first two rounds will be insanity as well as degeneracy. This is a much better way than the typical brackets (which are also fun).

    I went from almost out of the contest to +310 in the last week of the contest. I'll take it!
