The Wager Wire: Week 13

An unlucky number? Maybe, but our crack group of degenerates is hoping that their luck doesn’t run out this week.

The zombie-like resurrection of Cody Hagan continues on the Wager Wire this week, although never fear: there’s another taker threatening the bottom of the barrel.

Brian is only twelve dollars clear of the red figures, and without a win this week he’ll drop into the mire. Which, of course, would be music to the ears of everyone else, especially Zeke and Kevin who are in a two-horse race at the top of the table.

With only three weeks to go, who will pull out the win - and will all of our punters stay above water? Here are our picks for this week. All odds are from Bovada and were accurate at the time the bet was recorded.

Banker’s Bonus!

The banker is backing the Hurricanes down the stretch and knows how important special teams can be to a playoff run. With that in mind, if the Canes’ power play outscores the opposition’s power play overall in the next two games, the banker will offer each bettor a free $10 three-team parlay in next week’s column.
