Blue Line Odds American Football Contest (Week 1, Free Entry) 259 views

The winner of this on site / in thread contest presented by Timothy Wynn and his subsidiary, Blue Line Odds, will be awarded bragging rights this week. However, if I have at least 10 members who participate this weekend, then I will begin awarding a $25CAD cash prize via PayPal only, beginning Week 2.

This contest will run Sunday, September 12, 2021, and culminate with the Monday Night Football game (NFL week 1). This contest has been posted early to allow ample time to hopefully bring in as many participants as possible. If enough interest and participation is shown, I will reach out to Michael to see if we may work something out to potentially increase prize money, or additional payouts for 2nd, and possibly 3rd place, as the season progresses.

For obvious reasons, I will not be participating in the contest(s). My task will be to operate the contest behind the curtains, and provide leaderboard updates as applicable. These updates will be provided on this thread.

Contest Rules:

  • Select a team from each of the 10 games (shown horizontally - ie HOU @ BAL) by listing your picks horizontally ( 1, 3, 6, and so on and so forth ) with the number that corresponds with the team you want to select versus the provided point spread on the selection card shown below.
  • The favorite is the team with the point spread directly to the right of it.
  • The final game (indicated by numbers 19 & 20) requires you to provide a prediction for total points (TP) scored in that game for tie breaking purposes.

Your completed post would look like this: 1, 4, 5, 8, 9, 12, 13, 16, 18, 19 - TP 44

  • All posts indicating date and time of post kick off of the first game of the contest will be considered invalid and that poster disqualified from the contest.

Please read the above rules carefully. If you have questions, please private message me on Pick Monitor only, to ensure the thread remains clean. If I notice something wrong when reviewing your ticket, I will private message you to ensure your entry is valid.

Thank you for your time and consideration, and good luck to all participants!

Is this still happening, don't see 10 players. I would do it real quick even think happening, if not then understand. Game hasn't ended, but I did pick Bucs on here tonight as you see I took them on Moneyline if not to late.

If enough I will submit rest before Sunday.......

  • Of note. Please forgive my inaccuracy as it relates to when the contest will culminate. For the life of me, I thought I saw somewhere the Bears at Rams game was on Monday night. The contest will end post Sunday Night Football in contrast to Monday night mentioned in the opening post of this thread. Thank you.

  • Please refer to the scorecard link in post #5 for leaderboard updates at the conclusion of the early afternoon games, late afternoon games, and Sunday Night Football game.

Thank you to those who have signed up, and to those who sign up before 1:05pm EST this afternoon.

Good luck!

We are in the midst of a two horse race after 9/10 NFL games have reached completion, and the final game already under way. Both TheBaitShop & drudeezy have earned 7 wins, have both selected #19 (Chicago Bears +9) on the selection card, therefore total points (TP) are in play with the former participant predicting 47 points, while the latter chose 44.

Good luck to the both of you, and have a great night.

BLUE LINE ODDS AMERICAN FOOTBALL

CONTEST CHAMPION / WEEK 1

TheBaitShop


You may refer to Post #5 in this forum thread and click the BLUE LINE ODDS GAMESTAGE SCORECARD link to view the final results of this contest.

Although our number of registrants fell short of the required 10, as always, this contest was super fun for spectators and participants, alike. For this reason, we will be running this contest again in Week 2, with the original six who participated this week automatically invited to participate, and have their spots reserved. That will leave 7 spots open as the maximum number of contestants accepted for next week, and possibly future weeks, will be 13. Once the aforementioned 7 tickets have been posted on the new forum thread to be posted on Wednesday evening, any later posts will be considered invalid and disqualified from the contest.

The $25CAD via PayPal only, will be up for grabs in Week 2. If you register, but are unable to accept the cash prize via PayPal, you will need to create a PayPal account, or forego the prize money if you win.

Thanks again to TheBaitShop and the other six for joining in. Hope to see you all next week, and have a great night!

CORRECTION: Contrary to my advising there will be 13 free entries for next week's contest, please be advised there will only be 10 spots open, of which the original 6 have reserved entries.
