Well, it was a fun ride while it lasted. Long-time readers of the column might have been surprised that our gambling friend, the aptly named Degenerate Gambler, has been solidly up on the season thus far. To the untrained eye, there is no rhyme or reason to his picks from week to week, but the truth of the matter is that he “goes with his gut,” like so many bettors across the land. That’s all fine and dandy until your bets are relegated to Chargers-centric bets in a 4-win season.
Our friend takes his favorite bets on $100 worth of wagers each week, and chews his fingernails to the nub awaiting his fate.
