For the past few months, I’ve been extremely obsessed with ESPN’s Streak for the Cash. I’m not at all great at it. And I think that’s a good thing. If I was awesome at picking the winners of all these different sporting events online without having to put down any cash at all, I’m sure I’d be broke as all get out laying down real bets on this stuff.
Right now, my record is 164-146-10, which is a paltry 52.9% when it comes to accuracy. If you want to see it broken down by sport, I think you should be able to see this link. My highest winning streak has been 12 in a row; my highest losing streak has been seven in a row. Obviously I’m all over the board when it comes to accuracy.
The StreakMaster posts what he’s picking for the day. I was kind of impressed by it and I also realized that if maybe I did that, I wouldn’t be stressing so much about it all day long. I can only look at ESPN so many times during the work day before our IT department realizes it’s not really for networking activities. So, here we go:
Current L1 (that’s a streak of one loss for those of you that don’t know how this works); Current .529 (164-146-10)
United States Win. David Banda is the only person from Malawi (which is the U.S.’s opponent) I know and I’m pretty sure Madonna’s not going to let him play in the Under-17 FIFA World Cup.
Benjamin Becker. I’ve never heard of the other guy. (I told you I wasn’t great at this!)
Ottawa Senators. The Senators haven’t let me down yet this season. I know it’s still early, but they’re looking pretty hot so far.
We’ll see what happens and we’ll see if this becomes some sort of daily thing… I’m not counting on anything here.
