The betting windows are open for week 4 wagering!

The following people have not bet in the last two weeks and must place a wager this week or be disqualified, per contest rules

ct
headsnap
KcKing

PLEASE read the rules here (http://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/showthread.php?t=168100). The number one rule you need to remember is that editing your bets is not allowed and is subject to immediate disqualification.

Remember that You must bet at least once every 3 weeks or you will be disqualified.

Above all else, lets have some fun!

How to read the lines

Sample line

Thu 9/6 New Orleans Saints +6 +223 OVER 52.5
(Date, VISITING TEAM: Point Spread, Money Line, Over/Under)
7:30 PM Indianapolis Colts -6 -243 UNDER 52.5
(Time, HOME TEAM: Point Spread, Money Line, Over/Under)

How to bet the Money Line

Sample line
SAINTS +223
COLTS -243

First off, a money bet is a straight up win/lose bet. No points involved, so of course there are odds payoffs.

If you want to bet on the Saints, you will win $223 for every $100 that you bet. Conversely, for the Colts, you will win $100 for every $243 that you bet.

In other words, the team with the - money line is the favorite (therefore lower payout) and the team with the + is the under dog.

Placing Bets

PLEASE, format your bets like this:

Colts (-6) $5000
Chiefs (+142 money) $1000
Chiefs/Texans (Under 38) $2000

Please make an effort to get these in before the scheduled kickoff. I know most games do not kick off at exactly the scheduled time, but since I can't know what time every game kicks off, I have to use the scheduled time to close the betting window on each particular game.

I will update the rules thread and will also post this info in each weeks betting thread.

I hate to be an ass here, but I'm going to anyway.

I'm working on a big project at work and 90% of our support calls are because our users didn't bother to read the documentation that was provided to them well in advance of the changes we just rolled out.

What does this have to do with the gambling challenge?

A link to the rules of this competition is in the thread starter of every weeks betting lines. The rules thread is also stickied at the top of this forum. Does anyone read them? No! Because if they did, they would realize that all wagers (with the exception of moneyline bets) pay out at 90% of the wagered amount.

Please take time to read the documentation I have provided.
