    How did you do this past weekend; what were your winners and losers?

    What are your thoughts on this week’s games?

    I do a weekly betting thread on teh cal site on pac-12 games. here's my take:

    Oregon by 24 over Cal - Once again vegas creates a line that "sounds about right." I think Cal scores enough to beat the spread, but i can't see a close game.

    Arizona by 2 over Oregon State - Riley has lost his mojo. This team is done. Zona rolls.

    ASU by 3 over Utah - ASU stinks on the road, but utah just isn't very good. ASU covers.

    Furd by 27.5 over Colorado - Another line that sounds about right. BTW anyone think even we'd be undefeated with the furd's ridiculously easy early schedule? I'll pick Colorado to beat the spread out of spite.

    fUCLA by 3.5 over WSU - Two teams going in a different direction. WSU wins.

    My lock of the week would be Arizona.

    I've been seriously considering kicking a few bucks towards a game or two each week. I have been keeping track this year, and if I were betting 3 games a week equally, I'd be making money more often than not. I just know the second I DO have money one something, it'll go all to hell. I need to come up with a system.

    I like WSU over UCLA.

    I set up a pool at work this year that's been a lot of fun. 20 games each week. 6 guys or so usually. You're betting $1 against every guy on every game. I print off the picks so we can reference them while we watch and I have a spreadsheet that spits out who owes who on Monday. It's been a hit so far.

    Where do you guys usually place bets? A local bookie, or do you guys use a website? Sorry, noob here.

    I do a weekly NFL pick-em with about 20 other people. $10 a week. Winner takes all weekly. I went 11-5 last week and won about $200.

    Anyone else have any places they bet online, or anything?

    Curious about this, too. I'd love to put a little money down, but have no clue how to do so. I only bet horses through Churchill Downs.

    I'm pretty sure that TwinSpires.com pays them out

    Judging by the fact that I don't know what that is, I'm gonna guess no. I still have lots to learn, but I enjoy doing so.
