WEEK SIX RESULTS

  • WEEK SIX TOP SCORE:  The high score for the week belongs to ThePobanz. He was the only person to go 6-0, and he jumped from 154th place to 49th.
  • The group and lock winning percentages were identical:  45.0%. I don’t think that has ever happened.
  • We had 9 people go 0-6 this week, after only having one last week.
  • The group majority picked the favorite in every game. Unfortunately, favorites only went 2-4 ATS.
  • For the third week in a row, the bonus points were hard to come by. We haven’t had at least a “3-point bonus” game since Week 3.
  • North Carolina was the most popular pick of the week. They lost outright as a 13.5 point favorite against FSU.
  • Alabama was the most popular lock. They pulled away in the second half to cover the spread against Georgia.
  • The four least popular locks all covered the spread.
  • Zach McCoy has edged out Melissa Kucab for the top spot on the leaderboard. He is two points ahead of her.
  • Noble Smith has extended is lock streak to 6-0.
  • Despite not making picks in Week 4, Max Briese is ranked 18th.
  • Chad Capra has an incredible 5-24 record – the same Chad Capra that won it all last year.

WEEK FIVE RESULTS

  • WEEK FIVE TOP SCORE:  Nine people went 6-0 this week, which is more than we had through the first four weeks combined.
  • FIRST QUARTER WINNER: I was supposed to post the winner last week, but I forgot. The winner of the first quarter (weeks 2 thru 4) was William Ryan. He had a 14-3 record and scored 295 points. Reid Ainsworth and David Hoggatt finished one game back.
  • The group and lock winning percentages in week five were very good:  57.1% and 59.4%, respectively.
  • Where there are good records, there are favorites winning. Favorites were 4-2 this week.
  • Only one person went 0-6 this week. I won’t mention him……ok, fine I will: Brian Patton.
  • The group had a great week despite the most popular pick (Florida with 206 picks) failing to cover and losing outright.
  • All the teams that covered the spread scored at least 40 points, except Kansas State.
  • We have a new leader: Melissa Kucab. She has scored 102 points in consecutive weeks.
  • 99 people have a winning record. After week two, we only had 44 people.
  • Noble Smith is now 5-0 on his locks.

WEEK FOUR RESULTS

  • WEEK FOUR TOP SCORE:  Three people went 6-0 this week, tying for the high score: Jay W, Dan Bright and Scott Makintubee. Jay W jumped into the Top 10 with that performance.
  • The group and lock winning percentages weren’t great:  49.2% and 35.7%, respectively.
  • Six people went 0-6. For the year, we’ve seen 43 people go 0-6, and only 8 people go 6-0.
  • The group majority picked the favorite in every game. Favorites covered the spread in 3 of the 6 games.
  • TCU was the only road team to cover the spread.
  • OU was the most popular pick, and by far the most popular lock. 39% of the participants locked the Sooners! They lost the game outright.
  • Noble Smith is the only person with a 4-0 lock record.
  • Reid Ainsworth is still holding onto the lead.
  • The gap between 1st and 10th is the same as the gap between 10th and 92nd.

WEEK THREE RESULTS

  • WEEK THREE TOP SCORE:  Five people tied for the top score with 128 points: Bweav123, Champ, Chris Kinard, William Ryan and Nick Washburn.  
  • The group and lock winning percentages were much, much better:  57.4% and 66.2%, respectively. As is supposed to happen, the lock winning percentage was actually higher than the overall winning percentage.
  • Nobody went 0-6. Well done.
  • 57 people score 100 points or more! We only saw a total of 10 in the first two weeks of the season.
  • When favorites do well, the group does well. Favorites went 4-2 ATS.
  • We had the exact same number of picks for Texas as Texas Tech – a very rare occurrence. Texas Tech covered the spread but somehow lost the game, despite being up 15 with 3 minutes to play.
  • Miami was the most popular pick of the week and the most popular pick of the year to cover the spread.
  • 25% of the participants currently have a winning record.
  • Only seven people have a 3-0 lock record! There are a handful of people that have a 2-0 lock record (they didn’t record one lock because of the cancelled game).
  • Reid Ainsworth still occupies the top spot.
  • Brandon Harris has the worst record: 2-15….and he is actually on a bit of a winning streak. He began the year 0-11. Don’t try that at home.

WEEK ONE AND TWO RESULTS

WEEK ONE RESULTS

  • WEEK ONE TOP SCORE:  Six people tied for the top score: Richard Magann, Brett Fry, Max Briese, Michael Falen and Chris Robinson.   Its for that reason that we aren’t doing a “weekly winner” prize this year. I suspect we have some weeks where we have even more ties at the top.
  • The group and lock winning percentages were abysmal:  31.9% and 15.6%, respectively. A fitting start, really. 2020 continues to rear its ugly head.
  • Since only five games were played, participants were spared the shame of an 0-6 week. However, we did have 17 people go 0-5.
  • Only 9 people scored at least 100 points.
  • Favorites were only 1-5, hence the terrible group winning percentage.
  • The group majority was 0-6. In other words: zero and six.
  • The group majority was 9-5-1.
  • Syracuse was the only underdog to receive the majority of the picks. They had the game covered until late in the 4th quarter.
  • Iowa State was the most popular lock. Loser.

WEEK TWO RESULTS

  • WEEK TWO TOP SCORE:  Reid Ainsworth. He was the only person to go undefeated. 17 people went 4-1.
  • The group and lock winning percentages were better than last week, but still terrible:  40.0% and 30.7%, respectively. There is always next week.
  • The average score was 43.1 points. Thru two weeks, the average is 41.4 points. Last year, the weekly average was 66.2 points.
  • The group majority was only 1-4, bringing the yearly total to 1-10.
  • OSU was easily the most popular pick of the week. They barely escaped with a win, let alone covering the spread.
  • The leaderboard is pretty ugly right now. Reid Ainsworth leads the way with a 9-2 record.
  • Only 4 people have at least 8 wins. Last year, there were 85 people that had 8+ wins thru two weeks. Granted, we are a game short, but still.
