    Missed setting this up in time for week 2, but from week 3 onward, there are user games nearly every week so we will do this to see who can best predict the outcome of our user vs user games.

    Rules & Regulations

    All players start each season with 100 points.
    1. Can only wager on USER v. USER games.
    2. You may only make one 'Bet Post' per week. However in that post you may wager on as many games as you like.
    3. ANY Edits of your Bet Post will result in all bets for that week being disqualified.
    4. In the case of simmed games, the game is VOID.
    5. Any owner who joins late in the season will start with 1/2 of the lowest players total points (minimum starting points = 25)
    6. *Pete Rose Clause: You may not bet on your own game
    To place your bet do it by posting in the following format:

    Line 1: (Owner Name) (Week) @ (point total)
    Line 2: (wager) on (team & line)
    Line 3+: additional wagers

    EXAMPLE
    HAL9100 Week 7 @ 100 points
    Wager 1: 20 points on Utah (+7.5)
    Wager 2: 80 points on Auburn (-14.5)

    *Remember a (-6) means that team is the FAVORITE by six points. (+6) means they are getting six points. So if you are betting on an underdog make sure you use the + symbol, or else there might be some confusion.*

    You're "betting" off of the lines I listed. So, after seeing my line, if you think Utah will win or lose by less than 10 and Georgia will win by more than 7, it would be like this:

    Week 3 @ 100 points(this is just stating how many points you have available)
    Wager 1: 20 points on Utah(+10)
    Wager 2: 20 points on Georgia(-7)

    Rule #6 in the 1st post - You're not allowed to bet on your own game.

    It looks like there are no week 4 user vs user games so I'll update this this weekend for week 5.

    Pretty much. He had to win by a larger margin than 7 points. He won his game but since he only won by 3, that means that he didn't beat the point spread for that game and those who bet on South Carolina won the bet.

    Pride? Idk, I pulled this idea from my Madden league and we were giving the winner a late 2nd round draft pick. I couldn't think of anything similar and haven't discussed a potential reward with LeatherHelmets. So as of right now, there isn't anything.

    I know that we used scholarship incentives when we did something like this in Zeroes to Heroes.

    That could be interesting. I don't think many of our member have had to worry too much about the 5 star limit but I could see something like getting an extra scholarship being enticing.
