Show Pot – Week One

(WSCR) The McNeil and Spiegel Show’s #showpot moves for week one of the NFL season are all set.  A reminder that the picks don’t have to be NFL games, just that the actual wagering with the showpot and football season begins this week.

1st pick:  Cincinnati -8 at Illinois ran away with the shows voting.  The Bearcats have to go on the road Saturday in Champaign, a place where the Illini have struggled.  The show put $200 on the Bearcats despite them giving 8 on the road.

2nd pick:  Indianapolis -10 vs Oakland.  You the listener voted and were the tie-breaker between this and the Bengals getting 3 points in their week one battle here in Chicago.  28% of listeners voted for the Colts being their pick for the week while just 7% of listeners liked the Bengals.

Showpot Status:
After placing these wagers the showpot is down to just $488 after placing these wagers but plenty of opportunities to grow that remain undecided.  The show also has investments in the Colts to win the Super Bowl ($100 risk to win $4000), Jason Garrett to be the first coach fired ($100 to win $750) and Charles Tillman to finish the year with more than 4.5 forced fumbles ($100 to win $86.96).

The goal is to reach $3000 with the Showpot and have the five members of it spend NFL Championship Weekend in Las Vegas.
