Alright, the football season is winding down, and I’ve been pretty efficient at picking games this season. At 86 of 105, my success rate is 81.9 percent, just a few points shy of the best winning percentage in the Bi-City area.
I thought about setting a goal of having a higher winning percentage than all 19 area football teams, but that would require a couple of top teams to lose, and I won’t advocate that.
So, my new goal is to finish at an 85-percent success rate, or better. Here’s a look at how tough that will be:
If I pick all 40 remaining games correctly, I’ll finish at 86.9 percent. If I miss only three games, that percentage dips to 84.8.
Chances are slim.
Alas, that is the goal. Let’s see if we can get things going this week.
