Football The NFL Mock Gambling Thread - WEEK 13 - Alpha1Cowboy holds on!

Recommended Posts

Alpha1Cowboy hangs on to his lead, but the gap is closed as several players won big on the Feature Game!  It's anyone's game as the playoff push heats up!

 

-= WEEK 12 RESULTS =-


Feature Game - Washington Redskins (+7.5) @ Dallas Cowboys
Redskins lose by half a point. Bets on Dallas win. I hate football.

 

QUESTIONS
1) Who will score the first touchdown in the Feature Game? ($3,500 for the correct call)
Ezekiel Elliott.  Bum.

 

2) Who will score the first touchdown in the Chicago @ Detroit game? ($3,500 for the correct call)
LeGarrette Blount

 

3) Who will score the first touchdown in the Atlanta @ New Orleans game? ($3,500 for the correct call)
Tommyleee Lewis
 

4) Who will score the first touchdown in the San Francisco @ Tampa Bay game? ($3,500 for the correct call)

5) Who will score the first touchdown in the Clevenad @ Cincinnati game? ($3,500 for the correct call)

6) Who will score the first touchdown in the Green Bay @ Minnesota game? ($3,500 for the correct call)

7) Who will score the first touchdown in the Tennessee @ Houston game? ($3,500 for the correct call)
Jonnu Smith

 

8) Name the player who will rush for the most yards AND the player that will have the most receiving yards in Week 12. ($7,000 for each player named correctly, $14,000 bonus if both names are called)
Lamar Miller ran up 162 yards on the ground to lead receivers and Juju Smith-Schuster put up 189 to take the week 12 receiving title.  Nobody called either player.

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 12!  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.
