MOST IMPORTANT - If you are not on the Leaderboard (click here) (http://home.earthlink.net/~kcwolfman/leaderboard.htm) then I am not placing your bets. Check the leaderboard before you bet.

Everyone starts with 10,000 credits. Read the Rules (click here) (http://home.earthlink.net/~kcwolfman/rules.htm) carefully. If I catch any errors in your bets before the game starts, I will try to notify you, but I am not ultimately responsibly.

After you are sure of the rules come back here and place your bets on this thread. The odds are on Week Six Odds - Click Here (http://home.earthlink.net/~kcwolfman/week6.htm)

I will take your bets from this page and place them on the Week Three Odds Page

I STRONGLY advice that you refresh the pages before referring to them, especially if you have cookies activated.

Also note this very important fact: You are responsible for insuring your bets are placed accurately. Check it to insure your bets are correct. Remember - only you can prevent bad bet placement

IMPORTANT RULE - DO NOT EDIT YOUR BETS AFTER YOU HAVE PLACED THEM. INSTEAD START A NEW REPLY WITH THE WORDS "CHANGE BET(S)" AT THE BEGINNING OF THE POST

This will help me in keeping up with bet placement and changes without becoming an accountant and referee.

Copy his bets, but double the amounts... If he's good, you'll be better. So far he's proven to be good, so..... :fire::fire::fire::fire:

Of course, I'd rather lose than adopt this strategy, since it basically means you get no bragging rights even if you did win, but that's another story...

I am assuming you mean Jax in your last bet. Please check. The last bet will not be placed at this time as you already have money on the Eagles in the Eagles Panthers game.

Also note you have the Panthers in an earlier bet at +350. The odds are actually +320. Finally note you are betting on the Eagles to beat the point spread, but at the same time you are betting that the Panthers will outright win the game. I am not removing your original Eagle or Panthers bet as I must assume you have some sort of game plan in mind that I don't see.

2. You've flipped the winners/losers on the Patriots/Seahawks game who were betting with points.

3. You have the people taking Seahawks on the MONEY bet winning. They lost.

No I made it over $40,000.00 last year and went bust in about 2 weeks after that.

If this were the real world and real money, I'd take my $10K and bank it, and leave myself with only my $23,700 in winnings to play with for the rest of the season.

But the reality is that I'm a conservative individual economically, and would not treat this whole gambling thing the same way if it were real money. :shrug:

The coveted prize is bragging rights - like that one due got last year and the guy before him, too. Everybody wants them. Nobody remembers who got them. Not even the guy who runs the contest. Best of luck.

:hmmm:

I'm not really sure those "reactionary" bets are all that great a strategy. It paid off this time, but the theory is just a bit flawed. "I lost alot of money this week, I better let it all ride on whoever I think is best on MNF"

Frankly, I was hoping to lose the $1K I had on the rams to watch you and UTChief go down in flames, but that's just the kind of guy I am... :):p

Hoover
10-19-2004, 09:46 AM
I agree 100%

I always make bets Sunday afternoon and Monday for the SNF and MNF. My bets were Rams -6 and Saints +3.5 each for 5 K, those were my best for the week. The reactionary bets were the Rams Money line Bet and the Saints/Minn Over bet.

What killed me was my stupid Seahawks bet. i really thought they would bounce back.

okay. Sorry I didn't know it was that "real" of rules.

Since the house is making money here I submit an idea.

Kcwolfman is doing a lot of work to run this little game. I think that he should be allowed back in the game. Use a little of the house money to get back in on the fun.

I'm cool with him and Big Daddy getting a second chance since this is their gig. But it should be noted with an *

Russ,if I'm figuring the money lines correctly I lost a fair amount more than what's being shown on the totals.Also,I had no bet on the Packers over and had a loser on the Chiefs over.

Thanks

Naaa, Thanks, but I don't deserve a chance more than anyone else. BD came up with the idea, I just am the accountant. If anyone deserves back in it should be him.

Russ: please check my total again. I placed 4 bets all at 5K each and won them all.

Donks 5k
vikings 5k
pats 5k
rams 5k

My total before those bets was $14925.
Bwana, I got all your bets on the board, but for some reason I missed adding the Pats game in my spreadsheet.

I got it now and it will be included on the new page.
