Drake's Divination: The Dream is Far From Over


The college football regular season has come to an end. Sigh. I'm sure you've already read the season recap we did earlier in the week, so you know that The Divination came in at a disappointing 4th. Although I finished above .500 ATS and over 70% straight up, I was hoping to come out a little further ahead. But, one thing I will say, more than any other contributor here I gave you a nice variety of games week in and week out and hopefully exposed you to a few new teams and/or conferences along the way.

I hope you enjoyed the Divination this season. I'll take a look at what I did and retool it a bit for next year. In the mean time, if you have suggestions or something you'd like to see for next year, add it to the comments section.

Don't totally fret, you'll get to hear from me over the next 5 weeks as B1G and I prep you for each and every bowl game. But let's take one last look at the final week of the season.

The Divination Record
This week
SU: 3-2
ATS: 3-2

Season*
SU: 49-21
ATS: 35-33
*I had a miscalculation along the way so I adjusted for the mistake. 


Week 15 - End of the Season Bonus Pick

Navy (7-4) @ Army (2-9)
Saturday, 12/8, 3:00 ET CBS
Line: Navy -7

I couldn't resist one final Divination on the the year. This number seems a bit low to me. It started at 9 but has been bet down. That said, Navy is 0-4 in their last 4 games as the favorite. And since betting against one of these teams is like betting against America, I'm a bit conflicted here. The O/U is 56.5 and this game as gone under the past two times. I'm saying stick with the under and America wins.

Navy 30 - 23
