Our old Sun Belt rivals were in one of five six seven cancelled games.

Greetings, fellow degenerates!

The protectyouru.net website has been working more or less normally this week, so that is where you enter your picks. And plenty of you have done so. We’ll get to those in a minute.

First, what is likely to be a weekly feature this season: the list of cancelled games. The most important one is Charlotte-North Carolina, because it attracted four plays (two standalone, two as part of a parlay) before being cancelled on Thursday for COVID-related reasons. As per rule, the bet amounts for single bets were set to $0, and the games will be treated as pushes within the two parlays. They will still count towards meeting minimum weekly bet requirements. These are all longstanding PYU rules, which you can read here.

BREAKING NEWS: FAU-Georgia Southern was just postponed as well. This is not indicated in the list of picks below, but all plays on this game will be handled the same way. Also, FAU is USF’s scheduled opponent for next Saturday.

UPDATE: Houston-Baylor was cancelled too. This game was originally scheduled only six days ago; that’s got to be some kind of record for the shortest time a scheduled game has existed. All plays on this game will be handled as above.

Houston-Memphis, Virginia-Virginia Tech, BYU-Army, and Central Arkansas-Arkansas State were all cancelled or rescheduled as well. Houston will was scheduled to play Baylor this Saturday instead. None of these other cancelled games had any bets placed on them, so they don’t impact our contest. If you’re counting, that’s 5 6 7 games out of 29 this week that couldn’t be played for COVID-19 related reasons. Kind of a high failure rate, considering the Big Ten now thinks it’s safe to come back.

As of now about (1:00 PM Eastern time), here’s who everyone picked:

That’s right, I played all the unders. Considering the lack of practice, last-minute scheduling, and general sloppiness we’ve seen so far this season, the low scores look like a trend to me.
