    Picking 10 games every week with a .592 batting average
    Pretty good I'd say.

    I would agree. I tried that to start then tried a different method to only go and try another method. Finally settled somewhere around 6 to 7 games a week. Figured if I only picked one game a week I wouldn't make up enough ground in the rankings but picking 10 games and keeping a good winning % is tough. I got hot(more like lucky probably) over the last 4 weeks but still figuring I'd have a hard time making into the top 5.

    The last few years we picked 10 games with at least one of them a top pick, it was on a point system. As you know This year was straight win percentage no top picks, and for a twist we only had to pick at least 1 game a week. Took a little getting used to at first but it was fun either way.

    Props to igabradley for playing it the way the rules are laid out and having a 65.7 winning percentage. Crazy good.
    Just tells you how tough sports betting is. With a 10% juice like a lot of places, you have to be damn good just to win any money at all. Most bettors are just feeding the company free money.

    Dayum!
    I'm pretty much forced to pick all 10, (and nail 'em), to get to .634, I believe..and I started a week late. :mad:
    Then, I gotta hope for losses from the top of the leaderboard!

    But, Good Luck to all... I'll get y'all next season. (Unless Santa put some inside tips in my stocking) :D

    Yeah, IGA been kicking our butts this year. He's been pretty damn consistent week in week out. Dont think hes been wrong on a game in the last 3 weeks or so.

    I just want to say a big thank you to @RealtyGator for once again taking his time out of the day to organize and manage all this. Being apart of this panel has become one of my favorite things to do on here. Also a big shout out to all the members of the panel of which without them there would be no panel. I love the competition among the panelist. It seems like every year it gets better (this is my 3rd....... or 4th year. Love the challenges
