    Recruitment Anyone interested in participating in a 2016 FBS Bowl Season ATS and O/U Contest?

    Anyone interested in participating in a 2016 FBS Bowl Season ATS Contest for entertainment purposes only? We did this a couple of years ago and it was fun.

    For a small entry fee ($TBD), you pick as many or as few games as you like, and you weight your picks between 10 and 200 in increments of 10.

    If you lose, then you are penalized an extra 10%, like in Vegas.

    The Rules:

    Pick as many or as few games as you like, against the spread (ATS) or over/under or both.

    A pick can be made up to 5 minutes before kickoff of any specific game.

    Weight each pick with a number of units between 10 and 200 in increments of 10.

    If your pick wins you score the number of points equivalent to the number of units that you bet.

    If your pick loses then you lose points equivalent to the number you bet, plus 10%, i.e., if you bet 30 units then you lose 33 points.

    A push gets you zero points. It's neither a win nor a loss.

    Everyone starts with zero points, and you can go negative and remain in the game.

    Tie breakers to be determined later.

    We'll use the VegasInsider.com consensus line as it stands 5 days before each game, or as soon thereafter as it gets posted.

    Winner gets 60%, 2nd place 30%, and 3rd place 10%.

    Any questions?

    Suggestions are welcome.

    We will start this thing off this weekend with the Army / Navy game as an appetizer. The line is posted below.

    I'm currently working on setting up the spreadsheet for 2016. It may take me a few days, so please bear with me.

    Entry fee is $TBD. Send to my PayPal: [email protected]
    When you send your payment, be sure to include a message letting me know what your LT user name is so I credit you correctly.

    Not a very big purse unless we get more playas.

    The first game will be Army / Navy.

    Navy -8.5
    O/U 55.5

    You came in 3rd in 2014. We didn't do this last year. Before you send any payment, let's see if anyone else wants to play.

    We kinda need to get a $$ decided and people paying up so we can make this official. I'd hate to hit my first 5 for 1000pts and no one wants to play...

    Well, when I made my LOTW pick the Vegas line was Navy -5.5. I took Navy -6. But now the line is down to Navy -4.5.

    But yeah, I'm playing the middle,

    There was a huge line move. I didn't know either. But it makes sense now.

    After Game #1:

    mexican/ninja: negative 220 units

    There are 5 bowl games next Saturday and more almost every day of the week following. I will get the schedule updated shortly. Lines will be posted 5 days in advance of each game.

    There should be a scroll bar on the right side and at the bottom.

    Here are the upcoming lines. I clipped an image from the spreadsheet. Hopefully you can see this. Favorite is in RED:
