    Last Week: 2-4 (-2.18u) I’m done yammering until I hit some picks. THE PICKS Overall: 23-25 (-0.84u). All bets are 1u. Favorite of the Week (5-3, +1.53u): Iowa at WISCONSIN (-3.5). Unfortunately, this...

    Last Week: 4-2 (+2.93u) A strong performance gets us back to … literally .500 on this year’s picks, but at least we’re in the green thanks to a reasonably good performance on underdog moneylines. Hell...

    Last Week: 3-3 (-0.27u) A good gambler is just as useful as a bad gambler when it comes to tailing picks. I harp on this point a lot anytime someone points out, online or elsewhere, that a person or a...

    Last Week: 4-2 (+2.6u) With our backs against the wall, OTB responded with a solid performance, going 4-2 with another hit on an underdog moneyline. Meanwhile, the People’s Parlay was also a garbage t...

    You know you’ve had a great week at the book when you kick off your subheading with the quote about not accepting defeat from a guy who, uh … hmm. Anyway. Last week was the kind of week that makes the...

    The debut week of any picks column is always terrifying. You never want to be the guy that publishes a bunch of losing picks and then comes crawling back into people’s inboxes the next week. But we di...
