Sagarin vs. Vegas, Weekly Results

For an explanation of the Sagarin System I am using, click this link. Vegas spreads are from Pinnacle Sports and are published here.

This week's picks and results:

Texas A&M at Miami (FL)
Sagarin suggested: Take A&M +2 points
Result: Miami wins and covers, -$110
Illinois at Indiana
Sagarin suggested: Take the home dog Indiana +2.5 points
Result: Illinois wins and covers, -$110
Georgia at Alabama
Sagarin suggested: Take 'Bama -3.5 points
Result: Georgia wins outright, -$110

Penn State at Michigan
Sagarin suggested: Take PSU -3 points
Result: Michigan wins outright, -$110

Kentucky at Arkansas
Sagarin suggested: Take UK +7 points
Result: UK wins outright, +$100
Weekly results: Sagarin went 1-4 in the five games I selected and we lost $340.

Year to date results: Sagarin is 5-10 in the 15 games I've selected, losing $600 or 36.4% of the $1,650 we've put at risk in our hypothetical bets.

Not so good. Consider that one of Sagarin's rating systems is one of the computer polls that the BCS uses.
