LEO’S NCAA & NFL LOSERS – DECEMBER 28
By Leo Haggerty

WEEK 17

Same game as last week.  Posting today so I can use the Bowl Week games that start Tuesday.  More to follow.

Final NFL picks up.  Will put up WEEK 16 results soon.

Week 16 was the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat weekend.  LEO’S LOCK (11-5) come through for 300 won.  LEO’S LOSERS (47-32-1) was 3-2 but the won pair and that cost me 20 pounds.  LEO’S OTHERS 78-82) was a miserable 4-6 and that set me back 400 lira.

That added up to a Week 16 8-8 log and having me to give back 120 pesos to my short term investment banker.  So, when the dust settled, my overall record is 137-118-1 and I’m still playing with house money to the tune of 663 rubles.

Below are my prognostications for my last full week.  Next week is all NFL and could see a lot of teams that have clinched playoff seeding spots resting players.  That may lead less than 16 games to choose but we’ll cross that bridge next weekend.
