Week 3 has already came and went, and I’m happy to announce that I’m officially back to my old, terrible self.
I’m in mid-season “I hate myself” form, but thankfully I didn’t have a repeat of Week 1. Even though it wasn’t that bad, I also didn’t have a good week by any means. Let’s take a look at how I did.

When all was said and done, I went a bad (But not terrible) 6-10 in Week 3.
Normally I would be complaining about anything and everything about this week, but I think I’ve finally reached the point where I’ve been doing so terrible that it doesn’t even bother me anymore. I’ve also dialed back how many units I’m willing to put on random games, so it’s been a little less stressful. Plus, college football was kind to me this weekend. On Friday, I hit a USC, LA Tech, and Boise State parlay. Then on Saturday, I hit 2 parlays: Bama, LSU, Cal, and Florida/ Oregon and Clemson. That, combined with the fact I got paid last Friday has me in that sweet spot where I feel rich despite still being poor.
So basically, I’m willing to put this week behind me. It sucked like most weeks, so it’s no biggie to me at this point. The only thing I can hope for now is that Week 4 brings me a little better luck, but based on how things have been going, probably not.
I’m currently an ice cold 17-48 on the season for picks, but when your expectations are as low as mine are, this is like a walk in the park. If you haven’t caught on yet, you should probably fade all of my picks and become a millionaire in the process. The choice is yours, but we’re on to Week 4.
