The Wager Wire: Week 14

We’re down to crunch time, and the bank got their money’s worth last week. Will the motley crew earn some revenge this week?

With only two more weeks remaining in this year’s competition, the race is on the inaugural Wager Wire title.

(At least, it is for a couple people. For a few others, the race is on to stay out of negative numbers. One step at a time.)

Last week was a rough one. Nearly every bet made didn’t come off - pity everyone who took the Hurricanes straight up against the Blue Jackets and were promptly Bobrovsky’d - so the table looks largely the same as it was last week, albeit with a little less money on the board.

And, would you look at that: we have our first entry into the red numbers this season.

Time for this week’s calls! All odds are from Bovada and were accurate at the time the bet was placed.
