(DISCLAIMER: This game is for entertainment purposes only. No actual money is being wagered.)

First order of business: regular player McIntyre2K7 made a spreadsheet of the week-to-week standings so far. You can download it here: protectyouru.net/pyu/downloads/2019ProtectYourUnitSeasonThruWeek11.xlsx. It breaks down totals by week, and includes a nice chart where you can see how everyone went up and down. Thanks to McIntyre for providing that!

If any of you want to do custom analysis, let me know what data points you need and I can run a custom report. I really should do more of this myself, but work has been demanding lately.

Baseball season is over, so it’s games Tuesday to Saturday the rest of the way. This Tuesday’s games weren’t kind to our players:

User Wager Final Score Units Result Payoff

jrjs Under 49.5 points in the Eastern Michigan-Akron game (LOSS) Eastern Michigan 42-14 23.00 LOSS -23.00
speruche Under 64.5 points in the Western Michigan-Ohio game; Akron +15.5 points over Eastern Michigan; Under 49.0 points in the Eastern Michigan-Akron game (LOSS,LOSS,LOSS) Western Michigan 37-34; Eastern Michigan 42-14; Eastern Michigan 42-14 100.00 LOSS -100.00
speruche Under 64.5 points in the Western Michigan-Ohio game (LOSS) Western Michigan 37-34 40.00 LOSS -40.00

Not only was every parlay broken, but every single bet lost, except ElliotMoore getting the WMU-Ohio over. That’s $525 lost before IUPUI even happened. Leader speruche loses another $100, and his lead shrinks to $865.37, the smallest it’s been since (checks McIntryre’s spreadsheet) Week 7. Let’s see the Wednesday night wagers:

Perhaps because of Tuesday, there weren’t any. But Thursday night would bring us two more games, including a decent Power 5 game in North Carolina-Pittsburgh; let’s see how the action went there:

anthonyvito North Carolina +5.0 points over Pittsburgh Pittsburgh 34-27 25.00 LOSS -25.00
briank19 Buffalo -6.0 points over Kent State; Pittsburgh -4.0 points over North Carolina (LOSS,WIN) Kent State 30-27; Pittsburgh 34-27 14.00 LOSS -14.00
briank19 Pittsburgh -4.0 points over North Carolina Pittsburgh 34-27 10.00 WIN 9.09

Two new players dipped their toe in the water. They couldn’t both lose, because they took opposite sites of UNC-Pitt. But everybody still lost, because BrianK19 had Pittsburgh right but lost his parlay on Buffalo. So the brutal week continues.

bullsonparade96’s $1 bet is his Sudden Death bet, to get an extra $500 to continue playing. If it loses or pushes, he is out of the contest, though he could re-enter for bowl season if either of his pre-season Futures bets hit.

ULhothot is staking his last $141.74 on Wake Forest and Iowa. If that bet loses, he will then be in position to make a Sudden Death bet next week.

Enjoy the games, everyone!
