WASHINGTON — Lurch of The Sports Junkies is just as good as a pair of six-week-old puppies at picking games, a highly scientific experiment proved over the weekend.
Lurch, who went 3-2 with his picks, blamed Hurricane Patricia for the Baylor-Iowa State game not producing enough points, but he was otherwise proud of his winning record for the weekend.
The puppies, named Jedi and Ewok, went a combined 3-2 as well.
However, if the puppies are graded individually, Lurch easily defeated the 1-2 Jedi but was shown up by the 2-0 Ewok. Ewok correctly picked Arkansas over Auburn and USC over No. 3 Utah.
The rest of Lurch’s picks can be heard on the Big Fat Winners podcast here.
The puppies’ picks can be seen on their Friday segment with the Junkies here.
