  13. Back for the 2018-19 NFL season! Feels good, man! The Mock Gambling Thread is a competition that is a part gambling, part predicting, and part forecasting contest. The competition lasts for the entirety of the NFL season and is open to all regular board members. Each player starts with fictitious $1,000 that you can gamble as much or as little as you like on the week's Feature Game. There are two ways to increase your cash: 1. Bet on the outcome of the Featured Game each week (with the spread). The featured game will be chosen each week from among the nationally televised games with the line set from when I post the thread. 2. There will be a number of questions that will ask you to make predictions or to forecast certain outcomes across the NFL during the week. Correct answers earn you cash. You do not lose cash for wrong answers. The types of questions will vary each week, as will the amount of cash they can earn you. The competition will continue through NFL season. At the conclusion of the Super Bowl the user with the most "cash" left will be the winner. THE RULES 1. You make your bet and answer the questions simply by posting on the thread each week with your pick for the featured game along with your bet, followed by your answers to the prediction questions. 2.
