    2017/2018 Bowl ATS Pick'em

    We will play for $20 a head. If we have 10+ players the prizes will be 1st - 60% 2nd - 30% 3rd - 10%

    If we have 9 or fewer players 1st - 70% 2nd - 30%

    Send payment to stingers PayPal [email protected] Payment is due by Dec 22nd.

    Lines will be posted in this post. I will edit lines throughout the contest.

    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 scheduled kickoff of any specific game. If there is a discrepancy in time I use the yahoo sports app and we will defer to those times.

    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.

    I'm in. I'll go as high as $50 for entry fee, but even if it's only $10 I'm still in.

    Stinger in the past did you post lines weekly? Post all the lines at one time? Was there a certain number of picks each week that each participant had to make?

    Here you go: http://www.landthieves.com/board/sho...nd-O-U-Contest

    We'll use the VegasInsider.com consensus line as it stands 5 days before each game, or as soon thereafter as it gets posted.
    I put no restrictions on the number of picks. I penalized people 10% for losing picks. I also allowed weighted wagering of anywhere from 10 to 200 units in increments of 10.

    How about if I beat you I keep your LOTW prize money. If you beat me, I pay you your LOTW prize money?

    Troy 36 - UNT 23, 4:36 remaining in Q3. I think my over bet is safe. Now I need Troy to maintain the point differential.

    Let's give this thing to Tuesday. If we don't have at least 5 players by Tuesday then I'm going to shut this down.
