Hi, folks! We had to wait for the improvised Sunday game between California and UCLA to do the end-of-week summary. It turned out there were no live bets on that game, just two parlays that had already lost.

This week’s storyline is easy to find:

bullsonparade96 Miami (FL) +3.0 points over Virginia Tech; Memphis -8.5 points over Navy; Notre Dame -12.5 points over Boston College (WIN,VOID,WIN) Miami (FL) 25-24; Navy 0-0; Notre Dame 45-31 500.00 WIN 1300.00
bullsonparade96 Boise State -12.5 points over Colorado State; Miami (FL) +3.0 points over Virginia Tech; Notre Dame -12.5 points over Boston College (WIN,WIN,WIN) Boise State 52-21; Miami (FL) 25-24; Notre Dame 45-31 200.00 WIN 1200.00

BullsOnParade hits another huge Daily Double, this time winning on Miami, Notre Dame, and Boise State. One game in his three-way parlay was cancelled, which happens a lot in 2020, but a two-way win at $500 is still a big score. If this is our James Holzhauer, speruche continues to be our Brad Rutter, who continue to pile up fake money with a big win of his own:

speruche North Carolina State -10.5 points over Florida State; Wisconsin -4.5 points over Michigan; Under 76.5 points in the Temple-Central Florida game (WIN,WIN,WIN) North Carolina State 38-22; Wisconsin 49-11; Central Florida 38-13 200.00 WIN 1200.00

And that’s not all; a lot of other big bets paid off this week also:

Defdans is down to $0, and may make a Sudden Death bet to stay in the game. It must be a pointspread bet on an AAC game. I will put $1 fake dollar into his account so he may enter this bet. No one else is below $250.

The over/under for cancellations was 14. 15 games were cancelled, and the Cal-UCLA game was created out of thin air, which reduces the total by one. Players went 10-0 on the cancellations bet this week, as opposed to 8-12 in previous weeks. Clearly I set the initial number far too low. Lesson learned.

Games for Week 12:

Akron at Kent State Buffalo at Bowling Green State Ohio at Miami (OH)

There are 61 games scheduled at the start of the week. The UAB-UTSA game was cancelled before Week 12 started, so it will not count towards the Week 12 cancellations bet. This bet will likely be offered every week for the rest of the season. Then, hopefully, not offered at all in 2021.
