danj725 is killing it this year, with his second huge week in a row, and has already doubled his starting stake to 2001.88! He would have won a fourth parlay this week, but Wyoming failed to cover against Northern Colorado by half a point. They kicked four field goals in an FCS game they won 33-10. Seems like a season-long under candidate to me.
Better than losing to the FCS team, which Buffalo, Utah State and Nevada did. To say nothing of Notre Dame, Texas A&M, and Nebraska, who were all upset by Sun Belt teams. After week two, there are only 12 unbeaten Group of Five teams left; six of them are in the Sun Belt. The others are Tulane, SMU, Air Force, Toledo, Liberty, and Western Kentucky. (Also BYU, which isn’t part of a G5 conference.)
This week’s results:
Nine players made a profit in Week 2, so all of them get at least one point for the points race. I need hardly tell you who’s leading that:
Other than danj725, new member Squirbs is the only player who scored points in both Week 1 and Week 2. He’s also one of only three players who has profited for the season:
Futures bets count against the current grand total, but no one else would be over 1000 even if those were removed. Closest is briank19 who would be at 874.03.
The biggest game of Week 3 is probably BYU-Oregon, now that Texas A&M took an L before its trip to Miami. AAC games are: USF-Florida; Rutgers-Temple; Campbell-East Carolina; Arkansas State-Memphis; Jacksonville State-Tulsa; and SMU-Maryland. In accordance with the new definition of AAC teams, the games UCF-FAU, UTSA-Texas, Charlotte-Georgia State, Georgia Southern-UAB, and Louisiana-Rice also count as AAC games.
The Week 3 picks will be online Sunday evening.
