The Mock Gambling Thread - WEEK 6 - Biggie Hangs On and This Team Makes Me Drink!

Recommended Posts

I hate it when my 'skins are on Monday Night Football and I hate it even more when they're the Feature Game here in the MGT because I can never bring myself to bet against them even when I know I should.  Ugh.  Just...ugh.  Gratz Biggie, I guess.
 

 -= WEEK 5 RESULTS =-

Feature Game:  Bets on the Saints won and I died a little inside.

 

1) What will be the first scoring play of the Feature Game? Redskins TD, Redskins FG, Redskins safety, Saints TD, Saints FG, Saints safety, or other? ($900 for the correct call)

Mark Ingram got a 2 yarder in the first quarter.  Great. (Saints TD)

 

2) Monday Night Officiating: How many penalties will be recorded in the Feature Game ($1,500 for the correct call, $800 for the closest guess if nobody nails it)

10.  And yes, most of them were on the 'skins.  What of it?

 

3) Who will score the first touchdown in the Tennessee @ Buffalo game? ($900 for the correct name - And by score we mean the guy holding the ball in the end-zone; only call a QB if you believe the first TD will be a rushing TD by him).

Allen kept the ball on a 14 yard scamper for the game's first TD.

 

4) Eating dirt - Name the QB that will be sacked the most in Week 5. ($1,000 for the correct name)

Matt Ryan got intimate with the turf 6 times to lead all QBs in Week 6 at failing to avoid sacks.

 

5) Call the winners:
Green Bay at Detroit
Baltimore at Cleveland
Denver at N.Y. Jets
($800 for EACH correctly named game winner, $1,600 bonus if you call all 3 correct)

Tough week.  Only a couple players got 2 of these and nobody called all 3 for the bonus.

 

6) Name the team that will score the most points in Week 5. ($1,000 for the correct team)

Friggin' Saints. :|

 

7) Name the team that will score the fewest points in Week 5. ($1,000 for the correct team)

The Ravens were the only team not to reach double digits, only scoring 9 in a game that did it's best to mimic the effects of chasing 3 Ambien with a fifth of bad whiskey.

 

8) Name the player who will rush for the most yards AND the player that will have the most receiving yards in Week 5. ($2,500 for each player named correctly, $7,000 bonus if both names are called)

Isaiah Crowell lead runners with 218 and DeAndre Hopkins pulled in 151 to lead receivers.  Nobody called either player.

 

-= THE LEADERBOARD =-
@Biggie - $15,200
@BasemntDweller2 - $10,600
@Alpha1Cowboy - $10,400
@mikechorney - $10,300
@thewhyteboar - $9,550
@SFLUFAN - $9,100
@RedSoxFan9 - $8,800
Slug - $6,600
@Greatoneshere - $6,400
@Keyser_Soze - $6,400
@Kal-El814 - $6,200
@johnny - $2,700
 
Remember; it's never too late to start!  Everyone begins with $1,000 no matter which week you jump in!

 

Good luck to everyone in Week 6!  Feature Game and Questions follow this post!

 

-= 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. Everyone starts with $1,000. If a user doesn't start until week 3, they still start with $1,000. Your best bet it to get in early and play every week.

3. If you somehow reach $0 you are not out of the competition. You can't bet on the feature game during weeks that you are broke, but you can answer the prediction questions and hope to earn cash to gamble the following week.

4. IMPORTANT: I will set a deadline for getting your entries for the week in (usually before kick-off of that week's first game). It is imperative that you make your post before the deadline. The entry thread will be locked at the deadline so if you don't get your entry in by then you lose out on the chance to make money that week.

5. I work full time AND coach youth football AND go to school when I can AND have a near crippling gaming addiction AND probably drink too much. Responsibilities and personality flaws allowing, I will attempt to post the results and the next week's game/questions each Tuesday, as early as possible. Keep in mind though that there may be some wackiness here and there based on my schedule and hangovers. Pay attention.

6. For the official recording of stats/yardage NFL.com will be used. Whatever their site says on Tuesday morning is what counts.  No whining.

7. Accounts created within the current calendar month are not eligible to play and any entries from such accounts will not be considered.

Man, me getting the first one correct really helped me out, nice!

 

If it makes you feel better @Slug, my Philadelphia Eagles played like dogshit on Sunday and lost to a team we routed at the NFC East game last year. :(

Yeah, that was bad.  The only saving grace of this past weekend was that since every other team in the East lost, we maintain our shaky, tenuous grip on 1st place for one more week.
