And with that, polabonez has been eliminated from the game.

I will post the next challenge team assignments in a few minutes, and horvie will post the challenge first thing in the morning, with the deadline being Tuesday afternoon.

Don't send a boy when eliminating a man.

Money Line Baseball Challenge

Deadline for Submission: Tuesday, August 5th at 5pm EST. Kill picks are needed this week, so make sure to submit in addition to the team picks!

TEAM SIZE: 2 players (posted by Csudak)
CUT LINE: 5 teams: The bottom 5 teams will each have a player enter the elimination challenge. The first place team will vote for 1 player from the 2nd OR 3rd place team to also enter the elimination challenge.

We are back to mainstream sports with a simple MLB money line betting challenge. Each team of two will bet on Tuesday night’s MLB games by picking winning baseball teams. Money line basically means that there is a greater payout for picking underdogs and a lower payout for picking favorites. The goal is to end up with the most money.

The Basics:
-Each team has $200 to bet. Any money that does not get spent will be lost, so bet it all!
-All bets must be made in increments of $10.
-Teams can bet all of their money on one game or make a variety of bets. However, NO hedge bets (betting on both teams for the same game).
-PPD games will result in a push, where the wager is returned but no additional money is won. 

Bet Types:
-All bets are based on a MONEY LINE. The number in (parenthesis) is the amount of money that would be won on a $10 wager. So if you wager $50, multiply the number in parenthesis by 5.
Example 1: I bet $10 on Mets (15). The (15) means that I win $15 for every $10 wagered. If the Mets are victorious, then I would win $15 and the $10 wager would be returned to me…so I would end up with $25.
Example 2: I bet $70 on Blue Jays (8). If the Blue Jays win, then I would win $56 (7 x $8) and the $70 wager would be returned…so I would end up with $126.

Reds (8) at Indians (11)
Mets (15) at Nationals (6)
Tigers (8) at Yankees (12)
Astros (10) at Phillies (10)
Orioles (12) at Blue Jays (8)
Marlins (14) at Pirates (7)
Rangers (13) at White Sox (7)
Giants (11) at Brewers (8)
Padres (10) at Twins (9)
Red Sox (15) at Cardinals (6)
Rays (13) at Athletics (7)
Cubs (14) at Rockies (7)
Braves (16) at Mariners (6)
Royals (8) at Diamondbacks (11)
Angels (23) at Dodgers (4)

Power Play
There are 2 secret MLB teams for this challenge. Each of these teams will be given 1.5 runs, which means that they can lose by 1 run and you would still win the bet. Clues to the identity of the secret teams will be sent to survivors of the previous elimination challenge. Since there were only two survivors, I will post one clue for each team below. (Note: You DO NOT have to guess the team on the forum....just include the team in your picks)
Team 1 Clue: IV
Team 2 Clue: 56

Tie-breakers: (submitted by captain)
TB1: Pick a team that you believe will score the most runs
TB2: Pick a different team that you believe will obtain the most hits
TB3: Order of submission


Kill Pick (submitted by each player)
KP1: Total combined strikeouts for Cueto (Cin), F.Hernandez (Sea), Lincecum (SF), and Kershaw (LAD).
KP2: Length of time to complete the Orioles vs. Blue Jays game (Hours:Minutes)

I think I like Team 6's picks the best...and I'm not biased at all!
8/5/2014 6:48 PM
With out being bias I'm going to say team 2 made the best pick
This post has a rating of , which is below the default threshold.
8/5/2014 11:08 PM
Ooof, as a Brewer fan I'm happy they won.  Should never have bet against them.  Maybe I should bet against them the rest of the season...
