It’s victory-lap time for the Pro.
For the third year in a row, Lee Sterling of ParamountSports.com will finish the season a runaway winner of Joe vs. the Pro. As usual, it wasn’t even close.
The Pro has finished each season of Joe vs. the Pro in the black but this year it appears he will set a new standard even for himself. With a record 4-3-1 against the spread last week, the Pro is 55-42-3 against the spread entering the final weekend of the season.
Joseph Goodman, the Herald’s college football columnist, went 3-4-1 against the spread last week but has a chance, for the first time, to finish the season with money in his pocket. Joe is 49-47-3 against the spread for the season.
Though Joe has no chance of catching the Pro against the spread, the battle still rages for champion of straight-up picks. The Pro went 5-3 straight up last week and is 74-30 straight up for the season. Joe went 6-2 straight up last week and is also 74-30 overall in straight-up picks.
