Challenge: Money where your mouth is
I feel that to make it into the top 5, you need to earn it, not luck into it, so with that we will be doing a gambling challenge,
cause you know, gambling is all skill and no luck.
I'm going to give everyone $3500 sudakdotdec dollars.
Below are 8 games being played on Thursday night with lines.
NFL: New Orleans(-9.5) vs Atlanta
NBA: LA Clippers vs Oklahoma City(-3.5)
NBA: Chicago vs Denver(-1.5)
CFB: Rutgers vs Central Florida(-17.5)
CFB: UNLV vs Air Force(-1.5)
CBB: Florida St vs VCU(-5.5)
CBB: UConn(-16.5) vs BC
CBB: Indiana(-6.5) vs Washington
You can only bet one side of a line on a game (no tricky ways of hedging your bets)
Minimum of $200 bet
Must make at least 4 bets
Must bet all money
Bets you can make:
Straight bet giving or getting points:
Parlay bet giving or getting points:
2 team parlay: 3:1
3 team parlay: 6:1
4 team parlay: 12:1
5 team parlay: 20:1
ADDITIONALLY, if you choose, you can use $200 of your dollars to move a line and make an another player have to bet at least $250 on that line in a straight up bet, however, I'll pay it out 1.5:1 if it wins.
If you choose to do this, you must post it in the forum between 12pm and 6pm on Wednesday.
You must name the player and the game they need to bet on.
Football games move 4 points
Basketball games move 3 points
An individual player can only be made to bet 2 games max, and its first come first serve on forum with no edited posts.
So for example:
I can make stevedotdec have to bet the NO/Atlanta game
Steve would either need to take NO -13.5 or Atlanta +5.5
Deadline for picks is 5pm Thursday.
TB1 will be total bets won
TB2 will be total points in the Atl/NO game
