Last week’s prediction for Tennessee football was 100 percent on the money when it came to margin of victory, although it missed on the spread. I had a solid gambling week overall, but a couple of upsets killed me on the moneyline.

Week 7 performances

Outright: 5-3

Moneyline: 5-3; Lost $176 if $100 bet on every game (-22%)

Gambling record: 10-6 (5-3 against the spread; 5-3 over/under)

I’ve now increased by gambling record for the year to 55 percent, well above what’s needed to make a profit. However, the moneyline is in the red for the first time all season, and that’s something we need to fix this week. All of these lines are based on the WynnBET betting odds.

2021 overall performances

Outright: 61-21
