RMN Bowl Contest - Quite the Surge

Those helmets are just fantastic - Sarah Glenn

We almost swept through the popular picks yesterday and now sit pretty. How will today screw that all up?

Yesterday was as strong of a day as we have had in this bowl contest in my memory.  We had a number of very strong picks come through, and because they did, our winning percentage for the year now stands above 52% (52.04), a whopping 360 picks to the good.  All-time, we are inching closer and closer away from the betting Mendoza line, as we are now at 50.46%, 419 picks up on .500.  We have another make-or-break type of day in front of us, with another four bowl games and some very popular picks to boot.

  • Arizona (-6.5) vs. BC (O/U-57.5) - 81.5% taking Arizona/53% taking the Under
  • UCLA (-7) vs. Virginia Tech (O/U-50) - 75.4% taking UCLA/56% taking the Over
  • Miss. State (-7) vs. Rice (O/U-51.5) - 68.5% taking Miss. State/52.2% taking the Under
  • Texas A&M (-11) vs. Duke (O/U-67) - 87.5% taking Texas A&M/69% taking the Over
All I can say is c'mon Aggies.  That is quite a lot of wins riding on one game

Moving to the leaderboard, there was a bit of shuffling as the day went, but once Texas Tech finished their whipping of Arizona State, we now have a tie at the top.  Both at 27-11, AlmostAdamant and HNTR made a strong move to take a one game lead on the pair of swoelfel and TommySaundersHair.  Just behind them is a decent-sized group at 25-13.

At the other end, things have begun to tighten up even more as Columbiankramer looks to escape the cellar. There is now a tie at the bottom with mizzousundevil, with both sitting at 12-26.  Two games ahead of them is a small group at 14-24 featuring tigersteel, GreenChileMizzou, MUScott and a set of picks I put together which were simply all the underdogs and all the overs.  Tells you a little bit about how this bowl season has gone.

With the holiday and some other things going on, I will do my best to keep the competition up to date through the next couple of days.  I hope everyone has a safe New Years and an amazing 2014.  Check out the progress HERE and Happy New Year!
