I finished week 8 of the college football season with a record of 7-10-0 (41.2%). As the cold streak continues, my hopes of the much anticipated heater looms large!

This is something that can be difficult for many gamblers, but a heater will come….A heater will come…. As always, good luck to all you degenerates and Bet Goodenough!
