Sadly, this is going to be the last week of The House. I'll be at my folks' next week, and my family probably won't like it if I spend too much time on FanNation and not with them. I'll find time to figure out the results, but that's gonna be it. So don't hold back trying to save money for week 17, is all I'm saying.
The Gambler of the Week is st857, who really seems to have a nose for my bad spreads. (Now everyone's going to just copy your bets, so if you make some bad picks on purpose, I'll slip you a grand.) st857 currently has nearly twice as much in the bank as 2nd-place Curly Lambeau.
The House lost $650 this week, but for once the betting was fairly evenly spread. There wasn't one game that made my bank or kicked my a** this time around.

That's what you have to bet with. If you're not on that list, you must be new. Have $1000. It's fake, though, so don't get too excited.
Since it's the last week, I'll allow anyone to borrow $1000 from the Loan Shark, but you have to pay back $1100 next week. And of course, the Loan Shark is going to collect all loans next week, so if you don't have the money to pay him back, he's going to break your fake knees and fit you with fake cement shoes and probably sell your fake family into slavery to repay the debt.
