Excellent job.
I've lost it 1 win in 3 days (12 picks).
I studied my picks extra carefully and still went 0-4 and a Push is no different then a loss. I am asking myself why do I even still pick if nothing is going to win?

That Mich. State push cost me 200 today. Well that along with the Suns 2nd half collapse. Either way. BOL next time out. Top 100 isn't shabby at all.

I see that you are 1 away! I hope you get it quickly tomorrow and wrap up first place. As for that Push I it's the 2nd time that I have made a pick and the line got reduced half a point after i pick (MSU over Minn -7 to -6.5 and SA over LAC -9 to -8.5) that I got a Push instead of a win as a result. Has that ever happened to you or anyone before?

Worst thing about tonight was I got the Push and 2nd place got the win. Either way its been a grind the last week and a half. I got my pick will be up shortly. 1 pick for it all.

My bad that was Houston not San Antonio. I got the Spurs at -8.5 anf they won by 16. I got the Rockets at -9 and it later became -8.5 and they won by 9.

Oh my goodness, the Cavs lost to the Jazz and as a result this makes it 7 straight says with 2 wins or less. I'm now 73rd and would have gone up to the 50s had these bums not screwed me for the 2nd time in a week of horror. The Cavs lost to a Carmeloless Nuggets team on the first day of the slide and appeared to control the game with the Jazz and I wake up and see that I'm still at 186 wins (5 behind 25th place). This last week has killed me 8 wins 18 losses 2 pushes (8-20). Has anyone gone a full week that no day had more than 2 wins? Initially I made this thread about the 11th thru 13th but the 8th was 1-3 and the 9th and 10th each 2-2. Once again congratulations Ashflow on the $5000!

The UPS guy just delivered my covers hat, major disappointment.   Its just a foam mesh with a foam padding in the front and a cardboard visor. IT says COVERS, sports with a Vegas edge. Thought it would be a little nicer than this LOL.
