Game Predictions (Week 7)

It was the wee hours of Saturday morning when the email was received.

“If all the scores are correct, I had an undefeated week.”

A double-take wasn’t necessary as it was easy to figure out who it came from (even if I hadn’t looked at the sender). Andy Resnik had four 13-2 weeks and had been the leader of the panel all season. Not only did he go 15-0, Resnik also pushed his overall record to 78-12 and his lead to seven games.

While the title is far from clinched, Resnik said he is clearing space in his trophy case. It’s a seven-person race (eight if we’re using percentages and include Dave Purpura) and a two-person race for last. However, there is a man in the middle as Scott Hennen is three games out of second and three games from the cellar. So there are some interesting times ahead.

Following Resnik is Patrick Dolan (71-19 overall, 12-3 last week), Jarrod Ulrey (71-19, 13-2), JJHuddle.com Managing Editor Eric Frantz (70-20, 13-2), John Hulkenberg (70-20, 13-2), Aaron Blankenship (69-21, 13-2), Don Delco (69-21, 11-4), Hennen (68-22, 10-5), Brad Emerine (65-25, 13-2) and Lee Cochran (65-25, 13-2). Dave Purpura went out on the limb a little too much and had his worst week at 11-4 to move to 48-12.
