If only hrwager could set a line for us if folks wanted to wager on either myself or wvu. 

 

Could be a cool thing. But with one day before it starts, it'd have to be a fast set up.

I like your confidence in me. 

 

I hope to take out WVU just like I did in Poker. He's gonna be tough. I think he may have had the most consistent results from matchup to matchup. 

 

I need to replicate that 2week run I had before this past matchup.

Games kick off soon. 

 

I am surprised that no one took you up on this.

They must realize that I'm gonna smoke the card today and open up an insurmountable lead.

But....WVU is among the most profitable and respected posters of ALL TIME. You'd think people would have been fighting over the right to back him.

It's more about being 'for' Pit than fading Chicago.

Nah. 

 

I like Kingham a decent bit and their hitters can touch Lester.

Interesting strategy to use 2 of my plays at slightly diff numbers. Was this to neutralize what you expected to be winners of mine? Something about the numbers themselves after either a win or a loss? Or just an oversight. 

 

Haven't seen the strategy of that here yet and am curious about the process behind it if you do not mind revealing.

Nah I just looked at the card and made some plays. I didnt see your plays until I posted mine. With only baseball available, no doubt we will have some of the same and some opposite plays.

Gotcha. I was trying to read into the numbers differences and see if there was something I am missing. 

 

I know others discouraged opposing plays but I welcome it. Makes each game/play more fun to follow.
