LEO’S NCAA & NFL LOSERS – SEPTEMBER 11
By Leo Haggerty

WEEK 1

Well, we’re back.  After the pandemic reeked havoc with NCAA and NFL schedules, we start the 2021 season with a little more confidence that a complete and uninterrupted schedule will take place.

With all that being said, I am going to make a few adjustments to LEO’S LOSERS this year.  First, I will list the EXACT amount that must be bet and how much that wager will win if successful.  Second, I will be breaking it down into two sections.  College selections will go up Saturday morning and the NFL choices will go up Sunday morning. in the SAME column.  I will just retitle it ALL LOSERS so you know when it posts.   Finally, I will not be giving my reasoning behind each pick.  Just not enough hours in the day and I apologize to the readers who look forward to that bit of analysis.

So, without further adieu, here’s my Week 1 prognostications.  Enjoy.
