Bad Left Hook Pick'em Game: Season 32 - Week 5

Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports

We have another slow-ish week on tap, but we'll make the best of it! We have a few "interesting" prospect tests and one major name in a tune-up against a world class fighter.

Fights on tap: Carlos Zambrano vs Claudio Marrero (if it happens), Eddie Ramirez vs Jessie Roman, Mario Barrios vs Devis Boschiero, Albert Pagara vs Cesar Juarez, and a couple of early week fights with Sergey Kovalev vs Isaac Chilemba, and Dominique Dolton vs Levan Ghvamichava.

Check triples and doubles here! Some of us are already running out.

It might be a slow week, but as last week proved, these type of weeks can net players big points. I did what i could to get us the most possible points on the table given the relatively lopsided odds that we have in pretty much all the major fights this weekend. (NOTE UPDATE 1825 7/8/2016 - Zambrano / Marrero is no longer on any schedule and appears to be fully off - if rescheduled we will add it to a sheet at a later date -  all picks and modifiers will be forgiven) (ANOTHER NOTE* 1745 7/8/16. Dolton vs Ghvamichava is cancelled - all picks and multipliers will be forgiven)

Clear eyes, full hearts..."Let's get it get it get it!"

For those that haven't played before, welcome to the best pick'em game going. Please join right in and start playing (just make sure to check out the rules - we promise they are very simple).

The numbers in your selections are binding, not the names which you can leave out. The numbers will suffice.

Please follow the instructions at the bottom of this post - it makes it easier for me to tabulate the results each week.
