    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 went 4-1 yesterday (thank Duke and the over)... but many of us also had big days. ACC treated us well on Tuesday.

    Not me. I went with Howard to cover against Notre Dame, figuring 28 points was a lot to give. And of course they lost by 29.

    No ACC teams playing today? Nuts.

    Crazy Good

    Billv47 is at 18-5. 78.26%

    That's crazy good. Small sample, yes, but any 23 game run at over 78% is darn good. Especially this early when we don't know jack about the teams yet and ACC is playing ... whoever.

    The O/U is where I lost most of my points last year. I'm only betting against the spread this season and so far it's working out for me.

    Yup, though it is not that far off from some of our top pickers. Like I said earlier, the ACC has been very good about covering thus far leading to a lot of folks to post gaudy "win" percentages. Fish80 is 25-9 (73/5%) through 34 games. That might be even more impressive than 78% through 23. Billv needs to go 8-3 over his next 11 to tie Fish80's win percentage.

    Came back to earth a bit yesterday, returning to my norm, but Fish has got it going!
    Did not think Wake would cover and too much faith in state %*%)

    Uhhhh Utah and Minnesota are NOT in the ACC. GreenWaveDukie has broken the rules of the contest by betting on Utah to cover a 4 point spread tonight.

    GreenWave, if Utah does cover, you will be required to post here in this thread about your efforts to undo those ill-gotten gains. Failure to do so will result in your expulsion from the contest. I hope, for your sake, that Utah fails to cover.

    James 5:16 - ‘Therefore, confess you’re sins to one another ...’

    Somehow I managed to put 200 on Utah -4 tonight (against Minnesota). This is my 3rd year doing this (being in the contest in general - not necessarily failing to play by the rules). I know better.

    I also know the drill. Hopefully they don’t cover and I move on. If I ‘win’ I’ll consult RichardJackson or others for ‘advice/guidance’ on how to properly repent of my ways.

    Sorry to all. 😬

    Minnesota is coached by Richard Pitino, the son of Rick Pitino who was the coach at Louisville when they joined the ACC so maybe you got confused and thought Minnesota was in the ACC.

    Sorry man, that is the best I can come up with here

    Duke -28.5 over Georgia State, O/U 150.5. We need a 90 to 61 victory.

    Ugh...I mistakenly bet on Georgia State +28.5 when I meant to bet on Duke to cover. Lack of attention to detail bit me in the butt.

    Oh well, now I will root for Duke to win by 28 points.

    Bob, you could have made an even dumber mistake. Trust me.

    If this happens to you or anybody else, just let me know if you need me to pick a loser for you. It's a gift!

    I can manage quite well on my own thank you very much. Well, THAT was a veritable bloodletting. I went 2 for 7 and honestly felt like it could have been worse. And maybe this is a first: to the extent that I can tell* no one finished in positive territory on the evening. At least I didn't fall for picking Duke at -28. This team just doesn't have that kindof firepower.
