2011 MLB Playoffs Pool

Unread postby swerb » Fri Sep 16, 2011 4:00 pm

Very simple. $50 to play.

Each player is given $1,000 in fictional money to wager on the MLB Playoffs, from the start of the Divisional Series through the conclusion of the World Series. You can bet as frequently or infrequently as you like, with the following guidelines.

~Minimum bet $50
~Maximum bet $500
~Must place a minimum of 10 bets and at least $1,000 in total wagers throughout the course of the entire playoffs

Whoever has the most cash left at the end of the World Series is our winner, and takes down the entire kitty. You run out of cash, obviously, you're out. No rebuys.

We'll use the lines from http://www.USAToday.com the day of the games. You can mail entry fee to me (PM for address) or PayPal it to me at richswerb@gmail.com.

Post all picks in here. Picks must be timestamped no later than the official start time of the game.

From what I have seen USAToday.com has two sets of lines on its site: BoDog.com, and Covers.com. Which lines are we using?
