    (S1) Betting Lines Game

    I would like to start a side game with everyone.

    Everyone starts with $100 to invest, and you can't invest in your own game.

    Every game you pick correctly pays back in winnings the money that you invest. So, if I picked Stanford to beat the spread against Oregon and invested 5 dollars... and it happened that way, then I would receive $10 for that game.

    I (or someone else who would like to use it as their weekly contribution) will keep track of how much money each person has remaining. If you get to $0, you are bankrupt and lose.

    Make all bets in whole dollar amounts.

    Winner has to have at least 20 bets placed throughout the season.

    Winner at the end of the season... receives... a congratulations.

    It's just for fun, but I think it would be something that would make us want to look at the boards frequently.

    Bets close at the start of each game week.

    Spreads become finalized at the beginning of the previous game week. (Week 3's Spreads are finalized when Week 2 starts)

    Don't bet on your own games.

    -4.5 would mean that team is favored by 4.5 points, if they win by less than 4, than the other team beats the spread and would be the "winner"... but if they win by more than 4, than the said team would "beat the spread" and would be the winner.

    Yeah, Week 2 is closed for betting. But week 3 is open until that week begins. I will keep them up for the sake of seeing how I do and for people to look at throughout the season.

    Obviously, if no one wants to do it, that's cool. But it is fun and it makes everyone check how the other teams do. :) I've tried it a bit over at Proving Grounds and as long as people participate, it works really well.

    Close, I'll get us started. Basically you need the team you are picking and the amount you are betting for each game. Remember everyone starts off with $100 in virtual money haha.

    Week 3 Bets (feel free to explain yours if you would like):

    $5 on TCU over Boise State
    $1 on Washington State over Michigan
    $10 on Stanford over Wake Forest

    You can bet as few as you want or as many of the games as you would like, as long as they aren't your team and you can put up your picks for the week following as well, since the spreads lock 2 weeks ahead.

    Now I almost covered against PSU, one really bad interception when I was down 9 midway through the 4th quarter allowed PSU to cover

    yeah all the bets I have seen are valid, but they won't close until the week begins so you can edit them until then.

    Just keep in mind that you only start with $100 and if you get to $0, you are out. So big bets can be risky.

    Big bets are normally pretty risky with the spread, since its designed to put the teams on an even playing field. If any of you play poker, a $50 bet is similar to pushing half of your stack in pre-flop with AK against a pocket pair. You're basically putting half of your money on a coin flip. Just trying to simplify things for those of you not familiar with how playing the spread works :)

    I'm hoping to get a nice $15 cushion to work with. Don't let me down guys! Lol.

    You guys are irritating me, is there no one with balls to place money on the Cougs? You can ask Nautica, the Cougs are better than you think. Is smlvictories53 that great, because you cannot tell me Michigan the team is that great.

    I think if the line was 10.5 I think more action would be on the Cougs, that is just my opinion.
