LEO’S LOSERS WEEK 12 – NOVEMBER 27
By Leo Haggerty
Virginia – Florida State game cancelled. Added Nevada (-7) loses to HAWAII
The bad news is that Week 11 wasn’t a big winner. The good news is that it was a small winner.
LEO’S LOCK (9-2) cashed in an underdog again and that was good for 400 lire. LEO’S LOSERS (33-22) carded a respectable 3-2 slate and that added 175 francs. LEO’S OTHERS (68-42) slipped to 4-6 and that cost me 300 Euros.
The arithmetic for Week 11 was 8-8 and that equated to an increase of 275 yuan. Not a big increase but at least I was in the black.
So, after Week 11, here’s where I stand. Have a 111-65 log and that puts 5,275 rupees (money in India for those not familiar with the International Monetary System) in my bank account. Not bad if I do say so myself.
Let’s get to Week 12, shall we? Not a lot of games to chose from because of the Thanksgiving slate of tilts on Thursday as well as Friday so it could be tough sledding.
With today being Black Friday, will be adding explanations to LEO’S LOCK and LEO’S LOSERS later. Have to get those one-day sales, right?
Also, the same rules apply as to adding on games to replace those that could be postponed due to Covid-19 issues. Hopefully, there will be none but there’s no telling how that will apply. Enjoy
NEW YORK JETS (+7) loses to Miami
Hey, it’s the Jets. Need I say more. MIA, 27-20, as the Jets remain as the front runner in the race for Trevor Lawrence.
Mississippi State (+9 1/2) loses to MISSISSIPPI
Egg Bowl battle with two new coaches at the helm. Going with the Rebels in this one because they have a better offense. UM, 51-41, in a scoring fireworks display.
Louisville (+1) loses to BOSTON COLLEGE
Like the Eagles for two reasons. The first is the game is at Chestnut Hill. The second is it will be a lot colder than the Cardinals are accustomed to. BC, 27-24, with a late FG to seal the deal.
Utah (+7) loses to WASHINGTON
The Huskies missed out in the Apple Bowl with Wazoo so the Utes agreed to make the trip to Seattle and they may regret that decision. UW, 30-21, and the Dogs stay in the hunt for the PAC-12 championship.
JACKSONVILLE (+6 1/2) loses to Cleveland
Browns QB Baker Mayfield making just enough plays to win and the defense is keeping the opposition off the scoreboard. I expect the same against the Jags. CLE, 23-13, with another big outing by the Browns defense.
Chicago (+9) loses to GREEN BAY
The Pack gave one away last week in Indy. Don’t look for that to happen at home against the Bears. GB, 34-17, as Packers QB Aaron Rodgers throws 4 TD passes.
Duke (-1) loses to GEORGIA TECH
Kentucky (+25 1/2) loses to FLORIDA
FLORIDA STATE (+9) loses to Virginia
MICHIGAN (-1) loses to Penn State
BAYLOR (- 5 1/2) loses to Kansas State
Nevada (-7) loses to HAWAII
Kansas City (-3) loses to TAMPA BAY
New Orleans (-6) loses to DENVER
Seattle (-5) loses to PHILADELPHIA
Arizona (-1) loses to NEW ENGLAND
Los Angeles Chargers (+5) loses to BUFFALO
