Day 13

We got a W yesterday and it felt great. The Nationals tried to give the game away late but they prevailed. Time to keep moving up. The new balance is $292.35.

There are two parlays today: college football and MLB.

  • Parlay 1 ($100 to win $49.09)
    • Oklahoma State Cowboys (-1400) vs. Central Michigan Chippewas
    • Auburn Tigers (-1200) vs. Arkansas State Red Wolves
    • Florida Gators (-750) vs. Kentucky Wildcats
    • USC Trojans (-750) vs. Utah State Aggies

Here's the reasoning behind the picks. We're going for it again today with only two days left in the week to try to reach the goal of $400. However, we're not going to overextend. Oklahoma State plays Central Michigan in a home-and-home rematch from last season. Last season, State won the season opener on the road against Central Michigan 24-13. This year, they're at home and will try to stay ranked. Auburn looks to rebound from a lost to #2 Clemson against Arkansas State, who lost to Toledo. Auburn has to win this game or they're in trouble. Florida was not impressive in their win against UMass last week and it cost them their ranking. However, the Gators play Kentucky this week and look to continue a win streak that hasn't been interrupted since 1986. Finally, USC plays Utah State in a must-win game with how difficult the Trojans' schedule is going to get. The two last played in 2013 with USC winning. USC has to be ready to play this game after their warm-up with Alabama. 

  • Parlay 2 ($15 to win $15.07)
    • Oklahoma State Cowboys (-1400) vs. Central Michigan Chippewas
    • Auburn Tigers (-1200) vs. Arkansas State Red Wolves
    • Florida Gators (-750) vs. Kentucky Wildcats
    • USC Trojans (-750) vs. Utah State Aggies
    • Washington Nationals (-290) vs. Philadelphia Phillies

Here's the reasoning behind the picks. We've added the Nationals against the Phillies to Parlay 1. Max Scherzer starts for the Nationals and is 3-0 in 4 starts against the Phillies with a 2.48 ERA against them in 29 innings. He also beat them last Friday, allowing two runs in 7 innings. 

Let's try to keep the momentum going.
