Well, there’s not much else to say. Leader BullsOnParade96 won 4098.53 units this week. Several people asked whether this was a record. Yes, PYU is having its James Holzauer moment. (I know I name-dropped him recently, but I didn’t want to say Michael Larson, because he cheated.) To put that total into perspective, here are the winning totals from the seven seasons the game has been in its current format:

  • 2019, undercoverbull, 2856.61
  • 2018, jrjs, 2052.72
  • 2017, CarlZee, 1882.37
  • 2016, lrdnorman, 4816.37 (bullmartin was second with 4000)
  • 2015: gym399, 2625.53
  • 2014: RyanTSmith, 1662.22
  • 2013: LrdNorman, 1920.06

Only one player in seven years has won more units in a season than BullsOnParade96 won this week. Not bad for someone that lost his initial bankroll after six weeks, and had to hit the Sudden Death bet in Week 7 to get another 500 to play with. You know what game kept him alive? USF over Temple. The Bulls didn’t win, but they covered the point spread. Then he lost half of that on a big parlay (by four points on a Sun Belt game) and was down to 250 again, before hitting this game-changer:

Maryland +1300.0 money line to beat Penn State Maryland 35-19 248.00 WIN 3224.00

It was a bold all-in move, and it paid off. Maryland won that game easily, over a Penn State team that was a lot worse than anyone realized. That gave him enough of a bankroll to make more big parlay bets, and he’s been hitting at an amazing rate. Note also that his Western Kentucky-Charlotte parlay, which was voided when the game was temporarily cancelled, would have won too!

Gaze upon the standings in all their glory:

That’s not just the bets that won over 50 units, which is the normal standard for being listed in the weekly wrap-up. That’s all the winning bets, of any amount. It was that bad a week for everyone else. Among those still in earth’s atmosphere, only ElliotMoore finished with a profit.

The cancellations bet undid a lot of people this week. After several weeks of the over coming in, this week had a mere 9 cancels (11 cancels and 2 new games). E-Dogg42 was the only player to take the under, which bottomed out at 10.5.
