#CheddarBay Playoffs week two.

HERE WE GO!! The playoffs stumbled out of the blocks last week with a 40% ATS rate and worse on essays.  Let’s get back on the beam with a tight five game slate this week.

#CheddarBay week 17, Seahawks -7.5 at Cards.

Covers isn’t giving me lines for the college games (from any book, not just LVH). So let’s use Sportsbook’s lines via scoreandodds. All-play is Sunday Night Football Seahawks -7.5 at Cardinals. Late line:  Browns +3 at Panthers. Six way tie for the weekly last week:  Mo_by_Dick, OXR, Rob, Schroedinger, Shoseph, TrashyCamaro all had seven points. Check out MTAF’s Down By Contact...


#CheddarBay week 16, JFF.

In a surprise move even to me, the Executive Committee is waiving the ‘one college pick’ rule this week. NO MANDATORY PICK ON ARMY +15 vs. NAVY. Instead, the all-play is: Bengals PK at Browns. Are we tricking you to get all the Cheddar action lined up on one side?  No, we don’t do that on purpose. However I will...


#CheddarBay week 15, B1G Championship.

LATE LINE: KState +7 at Baylor. We are coming down the homestretch and we’re looking at high drama for the Cheddar playoffs. FlyHighCharlieFrye and AmplifiedEsquire displayed the power of the POTY moving up ten and nineteen slots respectively. No one has hit the POTY Lobsterfest (which needs a name) yet.  But GRR did hit his Lobsterfest (and payout) and took a...

#CheddarBay week 13, Cards at Seahawks.

We’re going with the potential NFC Championship game preview this week:  Cardinals +6.5 at Seahawks.  Rest assured we looked at a bunch of other games and UCLA/USC was at the top.  (Personally I think we’re missing out on too much Pac-12 football and to our detriment.)  We settled here though in large part because we expect to have college all-plays...
