I think it actually goes through the end of the divisional round of the playoffs. So, lots of time left, as long as this guy doesn't keep doubling up every week.

Miller had $4,000 left after week 1. his "stack" has gone:

10k-4k-8k-16k-30k-50k-75k-101k - Impressive.
first I thought it was cool it was JTM.
But then I was just impressed anyone could do that kind of 6 week run. wow

Yeah Devan got me and him into this pool through Alex Stalock, and I think it's run by somebody in the sharks organization, equipment manager or trainer or something. Lots of NHLers, and former NHLers in the pool, kinda cool to scroll through the standings and recognize like 30 names. Most random entry? Kevin Youkilis.

I feel like I heard once of a connection between him and hockey, but cant recall. Kind of like a "played in college" or something like that.

I just always remember him as the "Greek God of Walks". Which is funny, cause I just found out he's Jewish.

so, as usual, after actually researching the games and listening to some podcasts, I've changed my mind about my betting strategy this week. There's quite a few games that I like but no single game that I feel great risking it all on. There's also a lot of time left in the season, and with only 1 guy way out front, there's still a decent chance that he comes back to the field a bit, so no need to panic just yet. if there were multiple people at 100k+, I'd feel more pressured to go for a full double up this week.

With that said.. If I was going to go all in on a game this week, I would have chosen LA Chargers +7.5

But, here are my bets for the week:

Baltimore Ravens -3 $2,500
Detroit Lions +3 $2,500
LA Chargers +7.5 $3,200
Carolina +2 $2,500
49ers +13 $2,500

Now, the only catch is, since I am betting on TNF, I am locked in at whatever the final line ends up at tomorrow for the other 4 games. This doesn't matter as much to me this week since I will be travelling tomorrow and won't have time to review the lines anyway. Plus, since I am generally betting against the public, if the lines are going to move, it is more likely they will move in my favour, and if there is revers line movement, well all the better for my picks ;)

On baseball reference, probably the second most popular stats site, players IDs are the first 5 letters of their surname followed by the first two of their first name. They had to specially code in an exception for Youkilis...
Long signatures are really annoying.

Really felt the back to back stinker coming from the pens. So I load up on jets on DFS. Yeah, I have ehlers, laine, and little. Zero zero and .5 pts. Oh, Blake wheeler with 12 pts? Didn't take him. I suck.

Really annoying week. Felt like I was on the right side of 4 out of 5 bets. Chargers had that fluky safety which ended up being the difference between covering or not. Detroit had 4 trips inside the 10 yard line that resulted in a total of 3 points and they should have won that game outright.

niners just suck.


Balance after week 8: $10,000. Back to where we started. Won't see the standings until tomorrow morning, so not sure how the leaders fared.

Holy crap!

I had to go back to this...
10k-4k-8k-16k-30k-50k-75k-101k -

now 145k?

thats ridiculous.
I guess you dont find out his picks until after the games are played? sure would be nice to piggyback on his bets this Sunday, and kill his mojo for you.

no, actually they don't publish the picks at all, even after the week is over. I'd be interested to see his past picks and to know whether he is just picking 1 game every week and going big on it, or if he is running absurdly good across a number of games every week.

In my other NFL roty pool, the guy I am facing needs a WR. Picks one up just before the game. Yes it was Zay Jones with zero TDs until tonight.
