The betting windows are open for Super Bowl wagering!

Regarding Super Bowl Wagering: As in previous years, I have added some prop bets for the Super Bowl to make things a little more interesting. These will be; 1st Half spread, 1st Half Money Line, 1st Half Over/Under, First Team to Score and Last Team to Score.

The 1st Half Spread and Over/Under will be bet like normal bets, the 1st Half Money Line and First/Last Team to Score will be bet like a money line bet. As all other bets go, the Min/Max on these is $500/$5,000 (unless you are all-in)

Any bets entered with the wrong line or wrong teams will be void!


The following people have not bet the past two weeks and must make a bet this week or be disqualified:

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.

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

No prop bet for first person to score a TD? I was going to go all in on BJ Raji.

Yeah, I couldn't have been more wrong. At least I had some money to wager anyway. I was down to about $2,700 left after the divisional round, so I at least had a profit going into the Super Bowl.

I never do well in these things because I never have the guts to bet big early on. The last thing I want to do is run this thing for you guys after I went busto in week 3.

I'll get all the bets entered and make it official tonight, but it looks like congrats are in order for patteeu.

Yup, for me every time I get a flow and bet bigger I crash and then have to build up again. Thanks for running this, I really do appreciate your work!

Honestly, this has been the most difficult season to get a feel for in years.

To quadruple your money this year (imaginary or not) is impressive...
