The NFL Mock Gambling Thread - WEEK 10 - SFLUFAN moves in front!

Recommended Posts

Big losses!  Big gains!  More position movement than any week yet!  And out of the chaos comes SFLUFAN,  jumping 3 spots to slip into the lead as we go into Week 10!

 

-= WEEK 9 RESULTS =-

 

Week 9 Feature Game

The Niners routed the Raiders as the Legend of Nicky Mullens Chapter One was played out on the field. With a score of 34 to 3(+3), bets on San Francisco win the week.
 
QUESTIONS
1) What will be the first scoring play of the Feature Game? Raiders TD, Raiders FG, Raiders safety, 49'ers TD, 49'ers FG, 49'ers safety, or other? ($1,800 for the correct call)
5 and a half minutes into the game, Carlson hit on a 37 yard FG for the only points in a long, sad night for Oakland. Raiders FG gets this one.

 

2) How many total turnovers will be seen in the Feature Game?  ($1,800 for the correct call)
Suprisingly, for a game this lopsided, there were zero. Nobody called 0.

 

3) Hall of Fame Head-to-Head: Who throws for more yards on Sunday Night in Week 9, Brady or Rodgers? ($1,500 for the right name)
Brady edged out Rogers in this one, by only 35 yards (294-259). Only 3 players called Brady to come out on top.

 

4) Bad day: Which team will lose by the largest point difference in week 9? (2,000 for the correct answer)
The worst day was had by the Buffalo Bills who were on the wrong end of a 32 point drubbing by the Bears.

 

5) Call the winners:
L.A. Rams at New Orleans
Houston at Denver
Chicago at Buffalo
($1,500 for EACH correctly named game winner, $3,000 bonus if you call all 3 correct)

Not a lot of players had faith in New Orleans, with only Slug and BasemntDweller2 calling them to hand the Rams their first L.  And it was only BasemntDweller2 who called all 3 correct to earn the Question 5 bonus cash!

 

6) Atlanta @ Washington - Over or under 47.5 points? ($1,500 for the correct answer)
With a combined 52 points (mostly thanks to the Falcons *grumble*) bets on the Over win.

 

7) Hold the line - Which team will give up the FEWEST sacks on Monday night, Tennessee or Dallas? ($1,500 for the right team)
Not a great performance by either line, but the Titans only allowed 4 sacks while the Dallas line let Prescott eat dirt 5 times.  Bets on Tennessee win.

 

8) Name the player who will rush for the most yards AND the player that will have the most receiving yards in Week 9. ($4,500 for each player named correctly, $10,000 bonus if both names are called)
Melvin Gordon led rushers this week with 113 on the ground while Michael Thomas pulled in a ridiculous 211 yard through the air to take the receiving crown for Week 9.  Nobody called either player, no bonus awarded.

Good luck to everyone in Week 10!  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.

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