2012 MLB Playoffs Pool

Unread postby swerb » Mon Oct 01, 2012 9:50 am

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 $1,500 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://sportsdirect.usatoday.com/odds/u ... /odds.aspx (Covers.com odds) the day of the games. I will try and post the lines in this thread daily as a supplement to that.

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 IN THIS THREAD no later than the official start time of the game or they are invalid, no exceptions.

Scenario - wild card game.

Orioles (Tillman) +160
Athletics (B.Anderson) -180

Would have to bet $180 on Oakland to win $100. Conversely, betting $100 on Baltimore would win you $160.

A $500 max bet on Oakland would win you $288. A $500 max bet on Baltimore would win you $800.

Make sense?

One other note - always round up on your winnings.

For example, a $100 bet on Atlanta -165 today would return $60.60. For the purposes of this pool, it is $61.
