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.
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%.
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.
