VSiN College Hoops Challenge 2024 (Circa sponsored)

Most of the cappers have been mathematically eliminated with low scores and by having common picks with David Dineen (Only two more picks available in Week 7).

Dineen has about a 98% chance of winning, only Buckets Brubeck can overtake him, but huge odds against. Only Will Hill and Jim Root could possibly tie.

Whether NFL or tourney time, VSIN brings a capper in, with a twitter account naturally, he gives his sides. Next segment another much puffed capper who gives the complete opposite sides 😅

Week 6 going into the late Friday games, the losing continues unabated:

Overall W/L/T 18-29-0, 13 pending. Aux: 4-3-0.

Buckets Brubeck picks up another game on Dineen (needs Tenn -3 to lengthen his lead), only 1 point behind.

1 down! 1 to go! Who decides on these awful contestants for the football & basketball contests? This crew picking games is almost as bad as Vegas Dave, Brandon Lang , Stu Feiner and Joe Wiz.

Youmans is the mastermind behind these circa dumpster fires

But they are all sharp

OK

Whatever you tell people

If almost everyone is going to be this bad Youmans should just choose some scandicappers so the show will be more interesting and we know who to fade from week #1.

This has nothing to do with the contest but I thought I would post it here since the "consensus plays" at vsin have been money burners since day one. The wisdom of the crowd is on full display here.

You can't make this up
0-2 on these consensus plays

Simply mind-boggling how horrible all these group plays are

Defying the laws of logic

Got this from the morning email


I asked Matt how he would sum up the second annual Challenge.



"This contest has been an embarrassment for a few guys, but there’s no hiding from it or sweeping the losers under the rug," he said. "Some of the records illustrate how difficult it can be to pick winners in any contest. It’s also important to highlight the strong performances by Dineen and Brubeck. You always get hot and cold handicappers and those two guys have fared well enough to give this contest some credibility."


Matt and Wes are leading this embarrassment

Somewhat honest response. Not a huge sample, but dismal overall at 203-245-3. Statistically, taking picks from 12 guys at random from the Circa sportsbook would have produced better results. Without Dineen, they really would have stunk.

And the final week with 2 picks, has a common pick on Purdue UN 146.5 by Dineen and Brubeck, so David Dineen is the winner.

Adam Burke fails to submit plays again. Weird format with the pause for no apparent reason, then a 12-pick week.

Glad the torture is over and we can just go back to Matt and Wes giving out losers.

When Youmans posted on Twitter 73-67 UConn. Cover for Purdue. I realized Boilermakers were cooked.

the guy has been betting sports for years on years and has all these great contacts along with all the vsin tools yet he is horrible.

would love to see him banned from giving out plays and just be a host.

he is just horrid.

it's too bad vsin doesn't show a running total of all the vsin pros and people who give out plays on there. it would be a dumpster fire.

stick your head in the sand is their "transparency". Just the "hot" cappers are shown.

When I used to listened to Matt Youmans in the past on games I tracked I actually thought he did average or even a little above average on his selections given out. Maybe he's on a bad run. Where I think Matt gets in trouble is he promotes or put good friends in these contests not the most competent. For instance he thinks Kelly Stewart is both an interesting listen and a top tier handicapper. Lol There are many others who obviously impress Matt and can't get the job done. They either need to find a committee to come up with a field going forward or someone different deciding on the entrants.

I know he picked kelly because she is a polarizing person who draws eyeballs.

But his capper the cappers is really awful. He has to have a better network than this

VSIN is definitely going mainstream with the Golic's. I don't blame them, degenerate gamblers go broke.

As for Youmans putting his pals in the contests ,look no further than Mike North in the football contest.
