Brutal Week of Picks

Sometimes it’s just not your week, and that was certainly true for me in the last 7 days. I went a horrendous 1-7 this week in basketball. The only positive is that they were all 5-point picks, so I “only” dropped 30.45 points.

The week started with a doubleheader loss on Connecticut -2 over St. John’s and the Celtics -2 over Lakers. The stunner of the week was the Sixers beating the Spurs outright; I love the 76ers, but you don’t bet with your heart and the Spurs -3.5 looked easy. The only win came Saturday with Georgetown covering 6 over Marquette. But I gave it right back when the Lakers couldn’t beat the Magic. There was no love on Valentine’s Day when Kansas was favored and got crushed by Kansas State. I finally took a breather after the Sixers couldn’t get it done as underdogs in Memphis and Villanova missed a foul shot to avoid the push against Seton Hall on Wednesday.

At one point during the week I received a tweet from @LoiseBrixner535 reading, “Win 97% Of Your Sports Bets” followed by a link. If you want to get BS like that, follow someone else. Otherwise, follow me on Twitter for picks throughout the week.
