Football The NFL Mock Gambling Thread - WEEK 7 - BasemntDweller2 takes the lead!

Recommended Posts

A huge shake-up in the standings this week as Biggie is finally knocked from his perch and BasemntDweller2 takes his place atop the leader board!  We're almost at the halfway point of the regular season and it's still anyone's game as the stakes get higher each week!

 

 -= WEEK 6 RESULTS =-

Feature Game:  The Eagles dismantled the hapless Giants by a score of 34-13, easily covering the -3.  Bets on the Birds win.

 

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

The first play was a 13 yard Wentz TD pass to Alshon Jeffery (Eagles TD). BasemntDweller2 and mikechorney were the only players to call this correctly.

 

2) Which team in the Feature Game will turn the ball over the most?  ($800 for the correct call)

Team's were actually pretty careful with the ball in this one, but Eli's gotta Eli. Calls on New York win.

 

3) The Cleveland Browns haven't won 2 games in a row since 2014.  Does that change this week? ($800 for the right answer)

Cleveland is nothing if not consistent.  Their streak of no streaks continues.

 

4) Name any 2 teams that will BOTH score more than 25 points this week. ($1,000 for the correct name)

If you called any two of the Eagles, Bucs, Falcons, Steelers, Chargers, Bears, Dolphins, Vikings, Colts, Jets, Seahawks, Cowboys, Chiefs, Pats, 49'ers or Packers then you get cash.

 

5) Call the winners:
Carolina at Washington
Chicago at Miami
Seattle at Oakland
($900 for EACH correctly named game winner, $1,800 bonus if you call all 3 correct)

 

Keyser_Soze and Slug were the only players to call Miami, and Slug was the only player to get all 3 games correct to earn the bonus.

 

6) Which Week 6 game will end with the lowest combined score? ($1,000 for the correct answer)

The Ravens blank the Titans resulting in the week's lowest combined score of 21.  Slug was the only player to call this one.

 

7) How many extra point attempts will be missed in Week 6? ($1,500 for the number)

2 extra points were missed in week 6.

 

8) Name the player who will rush for the most yards AND the player that will have the most receiving yards in Week 6. ($3,000 for each player named correctly, $7,500 bonus if both names are called)

Gurley rumbled for 208 yards and Albert Wilson pulled down 155 through the air to be our yardage leaders for the week.  Several players guessed Gurley.  Nobody saw Wilson coming so nobody earns the bonus this week.

 

-= THE LEADERBOARD =-
@BasemntDweller2 - $19,500
@Alpha1Cowboy - $18,900
@mikechorney - $17,500
@Greatoneshere - $17,100
@SFLUFAN - $15,600
@thewhyteboar - $15,250
@Biggie - $14,900
@RedSoxFan9 - $14,500
@Keyser_Soze - $10,600
Slug - $10,500
@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 7!  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.

@Slug I'm assuming for #3 we're going by average points per team since the Raiders have a bye?

 

Although it's very possible the AFC West could have a higher total with only 3 teams :p

I'm assuming it's not an average, it's do you think 4 teams can outscore 3. Now stop revealing secrets of the picks!
