First negative week of the year. It’s just part of the biz. Only had 2 games all week and lost them both.
It is impossible to win when you don’t score a run. Scherzer was on the mount for the Nats. My thoughts were he would give up 1 or 2 and the Nats would score 4 or 5 even though they are one of the worst hitting teams in the league. The pay off was +220 and I thought it was a lock. Give the credit to the Giants pitching staff. Blanking an MLB team is pretty tough to do.
Edmonton Eskimos -6.5
In my pregame write up I talked about how the Blue Bombers were starting a brand new QB (Chris Streveler) and thought that the verteran Eskimos would make him look silly. The game started out great. Eskimos scored a 101yd TD, Streveler threw a pick and the Eskimos were driving again 17-7 annnnnnnnnddddddddd then the rain came. 2 hours and 55 minute rain delay. Anyone will tell you that rain delays benefit the home team much more because the facilities and food access.
Once we returned to action, the game was very entertaining. Streveler ended up throwing for 3 TD and had a great game. Their special teams unit had a returned kick for a TD. Eskimos still squeaked it out with final of 33-30, but not enough for us to win.
Not a great week. I guess if we are going to have a losing week only have 2 on the board. We are still positive this month with +13.08 units.
Weekly total : -7 units
