I should have because I am an underdog bettor. I hate to give points.

Not surprised. Most people have a hard time betting on a team they think will lose.

In most cases, the odds makers haven't had a clue this year.

Let's see if it continues. I don't take sportsbook seriously anyway so I just put almost all my money on the underdogs with the spread.

Well, this week it was a bust. Bet a total of $640,000 ($40K on each game) and only made back $534,545.48 so overall I lost $105,454.52 on this. That doesn't include my mistake of betting one of them twice which would have made it even worse.

Last week was better. My $630,000 in underdog bets gathered a total of $687,272.76. That is a gain of $57,272.76 and leaves me $48,181.76 in the hole at present for this little endeavor. Wish I had started this the first week, but it should help that a few more conferences are starting up now.

It's been a backwards season. In previous seasons you could make a mint in the first two or three weeks of the season due to bookmakers and what they didn't know. Later in the season you had to be judicious with your wagers. This year the opposite...games are easier to get a grip on now than they were a few weeks ago.

However ...

Good week this time. Once it is all settled I should be $67,3673.24 to the good this week, making me at just $201,268.12 in the hole at the moment.

Allright, this is more like it. Wagered $480,000 and got back $267,272.74 for a loss this week of $212,727.26. Total losses now $413,996.38. Were it not for my other bets I would be bankrupt by now.

I really should have kept my spreadsheet rolling instead of just using it to total things up each week based on the previous totals. I don't want to go back now and start over but I just might.
