    I took FSU (-6.5) to cover at home over Virginia.

    Posting my picks is a public service. A quick look at my 30-31 (-2050) record says I donít completely suck but Iím not good at this either. I canít seem to get Big Mo on my team this season.

    Sorry, Bob, I also took FSU to cover.

    What time did the BC v Syracuse game start? I missed that one.

    Hello fellow degenerates,

    I'm not ducking my duty to be degenerate, I've just been busy the past couple of days and couldn't handicap the games properly*. I should be able to make bets on Saturday, though.

    * Everyone probably knows this, but when you're down in the standings, you're just going to quickly click thru and bet on some games, hoping to go on a winning streak. When you're up in the standings as I am, you might spend like 10-15 minutes researching a game before you place a bet. Even more so if you end up betting the game in real life, too. Most have been in both positions, I assume.

    Someone I know - let's call him "Rich" - is at -5530. He wants to know if he's out or if that special bonus was awarded. Can someone let me know so I can share this information with this "Rich" fella?

    I don't think anyone is questioning your picking volume. It's pretty impressive.

    The holiday gift means that you can go to -7000 before you are out. So this Rich fellow, whoever he is, still has 1470 of room to make wagers.

    Note, if Rich wants to make more than 1470 in wagers he can, but once he has lost more than 7000 at the end of a day, Rich's game will be over. So, on Saturday, Rich could chose to make several thousand units worth of wagers... he would just need to be sure he was at worst at -6999 at the end of the day.
    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    I am going with four favorites to cover:

    Virginia Tech (-4) vs Syracuse
    Pitt (-3.5) vs Carolina
    FSU (-6) at Miami
    Duke (-7.5) vs Louisville

    My normal objective in this contest is a Top 3 finish but I am currently sitting in 25th place at -2600. There is a steep climb in front of me with getting back into the Black the first order of business.

    My picks are largely similar to Bob, which probably means to pick the other way.

    But I did do something different. I took Louisville getting 9 points. 9 just seems like a lot for a good team. I could definitely see this game being one where Duke just barely holds Louisville at arms length throughout the second half and wins by 5 or 6. I could also see a pissed off Duke beating the snot out of Louisville and if that happens I will just have to live with a small cyber-bucks loss

    I also took Clemson to cover the 6.5 at NC State because it appears the Tigers own the Triangle.

    Got four bets on the books today. I gotta start taking some chances if I'm ever going to catch troublemaker.

    I went down in flames, in the hole for 8300 FMU’s. I can’t bet no more.

    Good luck y’all!
