The 2020-21 Mock Gambling Thread - WILD CARD WEEKEND


Recommended Posts

The regular season has come to an end! BasemntDweller2 sits atop the leaderboard as the number one seed going into the playoffs!  Wild Card Weekend is known for upsets; will that hold true for the MGT?  

 

########## WEEK 17 RESULTS ##########


Week 17 Feature Game: Washington Football Team (-1.5) at Phiadelphia Eagles
Your NFC East Champion is a football team named Football Team as Washington leaves Philly with the division crown, winning the final regular season game 18.5(20-1.5)-14.  Bets on The Team win.  Only Keyser_Soze and Slug called the Feature Game correctly!

 

QUESTIONS 

1) What will be the first scoring play of the Feature Game? Football Team TD, Football Team FG, Football Team safety, Eagles TD, Eagles FG, Eagles safety, or other? ($3,000 for the correct call)
An 86 yard opening drive that took over half the quarter was capped with an 5 yard Terry McLaurin touchdown for Washington.  Team TD is the call.  Slug was the only player to get this one right.

 

2) Which team in the feature game will have the most penalties thrown and accepted against them? ($2,000 for the correct team)
The Eagles were penalized 6 times to The Team's 5.  Philly is the correct answer.

 

3) How many touchdowns will be scored in the Seattle @ San Francisco game? ($2,000 for the right guess)
What started off looking like a field goal battle came to life going into the 4th quarter with 5 total touchdowns between these teams.

 

4) Will any single player record 3 or more sacks in Week 17? ($2,000 a correct guess)
Leonard Williams was credited for 3 of New York's sacks against the Cowboys, being the only player in the League to do so.  The yesses get it.

 

5) Call the winners:
NY Jets at New England
Las Vegas at Denver
Arizona at L.A. Rams
($2,000 for EACH correct named game winner, $4,000 bonus if you call all 3 correctly)
AbsolutSurgen and Biggie were the only players to nail all three picks and earn the bonus!
 

6) Name any 2 teams that both attain 30 or more points in Week 17 ($3,000 for two correct teams)
The Saints, Packers, Chargers, Raiders, Broncos, Titans, Texans, Bills, Ravens, Vikings, Lions, and Bucs all broke the 30 point mark in the final weekend of the highest scoring NFL season of all time.  If you called two of these teams you got the cash.

 

7) Of the teams still in the hunt for a playoff spot, if the season ended today the Colts, Cardinals, Cowboys and Giants would be left on the outside. Do any of these teams make the playoffs when the dust settles on Week 17? ($2,000 for the correct answer) 
With the Colts sliding into the final AFC Wild Card spot, Yes is the right answer here.
 

8) Name the player who will rush for the most yards AND the player that will have the most receiving yards in week seventeen. ($8,000 for each player named correctly, $16,000 bonus if both names are called)
Jonathan Taylor went off for a ridiculous 253 yards on the ground while Marvin Jones Jr. pulled down 180 in the air to be your yardage leaders in Week 17.  Nobody called either player.
