• WEEK ONE WINNER:  Scott Makintubee.  Both Scott and Brent Polwort had the week’s best record (5-0-1), but Scott’s 118 points edged out Brent’s 116.
  • The group and lock winning percentages were not great, Bob:  44.3% and 43.8%, respectively. History tells us that this will end up being one of the worst outcomes of the year.
  • We didn’t have a single person go 6-0. It’s the first time that has happened since Week 6 of 2016!
  • Five people went 0-6. I won’t name them here, but you can find them at the bottom of the leaderboard.
  • Six people went 0-5-1.
  • Nine people accomplished the very rare feat of going 0-4-2.
  • We only had 14 people scored 100+ points. I could see that being the lowest total all year.
  • The season got off to a strange start, with the first two games ending in a “push”. Having two games push in a week is very rare. It last occurred in Week 11 of 2018.
  • 55 people picked both of the games that ended in a push.
  • Home underdogs got off to a quick start, going 3-0-1.
  • The group majority didn’t pick an underdog in a single game.
  • The most popular underdog, Louisiana, failed to cover the spread.
  • 81% of the locks were placed on the favored team.
  • Alabama was the most popular pick of the week. They always get off to a hot start. For that matter, they end hot, too. They rewarded their followers with an ATS win.
  • The most lopsided lock was in the Tulane vs OU game. OU was picked 34-1. Tulane easily covered, and almost won outright.
