If you listen to Colin Cowherd’s ESPN radio show with any regularity at all, there’s a 99 percent chance you’ve heard about how well he’s doing with his “Blazing Five” picks this year.
We wrote about it a couple weeks ago, when Cowherd’s 24-11 record would’ve had him in the top five of the LVH SuperContest, which features 745 NFL handicappers battling for a $447,000 top prize.
Since then, he’s gone 4-1 in two straight weeks to bring his record to 32-13. Right now, the guy in first place has a 31-13-1 record.
Can he keep it up?
(Those are odds from BetOnline, which has rapidly turned into one of the most creative offshore sportsbooks with all of its various offerings.)
Just to confirm, yes, you can now bet on how someone will do with his fictitious bets.
Our pick: 4 or 5 (Why not ride the hot hand?)
