Hey, remember when we did Spite Bet of the Week? It’s no longer given out weekly, because our players just don’t do spite bets very much. But this week, it really paid off:

GaryStephen Tulsa +1100.0 money line to beat Central Florida Tulsa 34-26 34.31 WIN 377.41
ElliotMoore Tulsa +850.0 money line to beat Central Florida Tulsa 34-26 15.00 WIN 127.50
Danj725 Tulsa +850.0 money line to beat Central Florida Tulsa 34-26 1.00 WIN 8.50

Yep, your friendly gamemaster dropped 34.31 (the score of last year’s Tulsa win over UCF) on the Golden Hurricane to do it again, and they did. Too bad last year’s game wasn’t more high-scoring. ElliotMoore and Danj725 won also.

This was a good week for our players: big winners were GaryStephen (357.41), jrjs (300.00), E-dogg42 (236.09),McIntyre2K7 (170.00), and ElliotMoore (168.67). This has changed the standings a great deal:

speruche 1335.84 -53.29
GaryStephen 1275.23 357.41
jrjs 1246.37 300.00
ElliotMoore 1180.42 168.67

Danj725 467.56 22.14
bullsonparade96 3.77 -248.09

Speruche is still in first, but some new faces have moved up the table. His lead would be bigger if someone had missed one of the nine extra points in the Southern Miss-North Texas game:

speruche Under 72.0 points in the Southern Mississippi-North Texas game; Under 72.5 points in the Tulsa-Central Florida game; Virginia +28.5 points over Clemson (PUSH,WIN,WIN) Southern Mississippi 41-31; Tulsa 34-26; Clemson 41-23 40.00 WIN 104.00

That’s a bummer, missing out on 6-to-1 hit because one bet was a tie. Speruche would have extended his lead another $136.

Only one game was cancelled this week, so the bet came in way under the opening line of 5.5. (Actually, two games got cancelled, but one was the next week’s Wednesday night game, and not included in this bet.) I will offer this wager again in Week 6. Here are the 31 scheduled games for Week 6:

  • Tulane at Houston
  • Louisville at Georgia Tech
  • Florida at Texas A&M
  • Tennessee at Georgia
  • Texas vs Oklahoma (at Dallas)
  • Louisiana-Monroe at Liberty
  • North Carolina State at Virginia
  • Virginia Tech at North Carolina
  • South Carolina at Vanderbilt
  • Coastal Carolina at Louisiana
  • Duke at Syracuse
  • Citadel at Army
  • Texas-San Antonio at Brigham Young
  • Texas Tech at Iowa State
  • Texas State at Troy
  • Arkansas at Auburn
  • Pittsburgh at Boston College
  • Kansas State at Texas Christian
  • Middle Tennessee State at Florida International
  • Florida Atlantic at Southern Mississippi
  • Alabama at Mississippi
  • Temple at Navy
  • Central Arkansas at Arkansas State
  • East Carolina at South Florida
  • Marshall at Western Kentucky
  • Texas-El Paso at Louisiana Tech
  • Florida State at Notre Dame
  • Miami (FL) at Clemson
  • Mississippi State at Kentucky
  • Charlotte at North Texas
  • Missouri at Louisiana State

The wager will be, how many of these games will be cancelled or postponed? Note that Appalachian State-Louisiana is not in the list. It will not count as a cancellation, because it was already cancelled before the bet was announced. If it did, I’d have to count every other game that was ever cancelled, including the long-cancelled Big Ten and Pac-10 games. And I like to keep things simple.

First lines for Week 6 will be posted Sunday night or Monday morning.
