The Regular Usual: College Football Show – Week 5 2016

It’s Week 5 and we’re not doing great but I guarantee I’m holding down my bets better than you and you dad’s friends.

The vodka influenced picks have been paying dividends going 3-3 last weekend ($7.49 won).

Attribute it to smart play or alcoholic tendencies but I’m getting closer to back on track.

But enough with the pleasantries, let’s dive head first into this week’s picks.

The Regular Usual: College Football Show – Week 4 2016

I wanna take all the credit but I gotta give it up to Svedka for guide my decisions last week.

*UPDATED 9/26/16*

Fueled by vodka, I finally had a “winning” week on picks going 3-2.

If it wasn’t for a foolish 3 team NFL parlay (Dammit Dolphins), money wouldn’t be too bad heading into Week 4. (Collective $8.49 lost)

That being said, I’m giving you 6 games this week while drinking ‘The Winner’s Cocktail’.

The climb back to .500 continues.

The Regular Usual: College Football Show – Week 3 2016

I got waxed last week.

*UPDATED 9/20/16*

Going 1-4 in any activity is never good, especially when you’re money is on the line. (Collective $11.57 lost)

So far my side hustle/venture revolving around the world of sports betting has been highly unsuccessful and may come to end soon…

UNLESS your boy goes 5-0 this week and hedges his poor wagers properly. I’m feeling it.

Making picks while drinking wine led to my undoing in for the first to weeks of the College Football season, but not this time.

I went with vodka (Svedka Cucumber Lime) and the courage was STRONG. Let’s get it.

The Regular Usual: College Football Show – Week 2 2016

Talk about starting off the 2016 season with a bang!

*UPDATED 9/12/16*

Last weekend was hands-down, the best opening weekend for any sport in my 27 years.

If you’re like me, your eyes were burning come Monday morning from watching games, recaps, breakdowns, etc…Yet still pumped for a final game Monday night.

However, this weekend is a complete 180 from last with hardly any marquee games on deck.

Can’t lie I struggled to find 5 games to breakdown and place my bets on.

Speaking of bets, last week your boy went 3-6 and lost $8.43. THIS IS WHY I BET CHEAP. It’s a long season and if I continue to have shitty picks, my bankroll will diminish before October.

Onward to Week 2.
