Games where I picked the winner will be highlighted in BOLD. Games where I got the winner wrong will be highlighted in RED… and I had my first straight up missed prediction of the tourney today so it’s my first RED mark of the 2018 event. I’m still feeling confident, but as I’ve said before, things only get harder from here!

Canada Vs England – CAN by 12.5 goals – Canada won 12-6. England covered the spread.
Out of 31 games played so far I got one predicted winner wrong. Well done, Argentina! That team is doing a lot better than I expected, and the only thing that will slow them down seems to be face offs. Or not. I’ve been wrong about them quite a bit. That’s fun!
Out of the 16 games played today, I picked the winner correctly in 15 of them, and two games were push games for scores, which are dumb. I won’t do any more of those. Six of my predicted goal differentials fell within 2 goals of my predicted difference and four games were within half a goal.
