Bet the Mortgage: Week 11, 2017

Slow and steady might bore Tony, but he’s continuing to close in on a 50 percent return on his bankroll for the season. Andy … continues to swirl the drain. Slowly this week, but … still on the way down. Here are the standings: Last week Last week $ Overall Overall $ Bankroll Tony 2-1-1 +$36 21-17-2 +$3,863 $13,863 Andy 2-2 -$320 15-25 -$7,552 $2,448   And here are our week 11 bets: Tony: Even going big with my bets, I can’t break through significantly one way or the other—kind of like kissing your sister.

Alternative Picks – Week 11, 2017

Well, it was nice while it lasted. Andy’s one-week winning streak was snapped, as Tony rebounded with a narrow win in week 10. There’s a lot of football left to be played, but Tony is maintaining a commanding lead. Week 10 Tony 8-6 Total Tony 86-56 Andy chose to pick first. And we’re off. Andy: Kansas City over NY Giants – The Chiefs are having some troubles on offense, but the Giants have quit. This bunch of dogs got rolled by San Francisco.

Easy come, easy go, I guess. Andy, on the other hand, has been digging himself out of the muck most of the season. And,...

Alternative Picks – Week 9, 2017

Tony won again in week eight, but at least it was a contest. Actually, both Andy and Tony picked every game they selected correctly – Tony just happened to pick one more game than Andy. Small victories, I guess. That means the standings are: Week 8 Tony 7-6 Total 72-43 So here we go again. Andy: Houston over Indianapolis – Deshaun Watson is for real. He’s made an incredible difference for the Texans, who, even in losing to Seattle, played like a real contender. Meanwhile, the Colts put Andrew Luck on IR… Tony: Seattle over Washington – Trap game...
