The NFL Mock Gambling Thread - WEEK 16 - thewhyteboar holds off the pack!

Recommended Posts

thewhyteboar maintains his slim lead going into week 16 as absolutely everyone eats a loss on the Feature Game!  With the playoff picture starting to shape up, can anyone close that gap and take away that top spot on the leaderboard?!

 

-= WEEK 15 RESULTS =-

Feature Game: L.A. Chargers (+3.5) @ Kansas City Chiefs
A result that nobody saw coming.  The Chargers came in swinging to beat the favored Chiefs outright, winning by a score of 29+3.5-28.  If anyone had bet on the Bolts they would've won, but that didn't happen.
 
-= QUESTIONS =-
1) What will be the first scoring play of the Feature Game? Chargers touchdown, Chargers field goal, Chargers safety, Chiefs touchdown, Chiefs field goal, or Chiefs safety? ($5,000 for the correct call)
The first score in this one was a short 5 yarder by Mahomes to Robinson.  Chiefs TD is the call.

 

2) Which team in the Feature Game will be the most heavily penalized in terms of YARDAGE? ($3,500 for the correct call)
The Chiefs got flagged 6 times for 50 yards while the Chargers got hit with 7, but only for 45.  Guesses on the Chiefs win this one.

 

3) Name any 2 running backs that will rush for over 100 yards in week 15. ($4,000 for the correct answer)
Any combination of Henry, Coleman, Samuels, Mack, Cook, Mixon, Ballage, Carson, Edwards, and Chubb got the cash for this one.

 

4) Next man up: Either due to injury or benching, the Redskins have used multiple quarterbacks in 3 of their last 4 games. Do they use more than one QB again this week? ($2,000 for the correct answer)
The Redskins shock everyone by having their quarterback go an entire game without their leg exploding or getting benched for turnovers.  Guesses on "no" get it.

 

5) Pick the winners ($3,500 for each correct pick, $6,000 bonus if you call all 3 correctly)
Detroit @ Buffalo
New England @ Pittsburgh
Oakland @ Cincinnati

 

Several players called a mix of these, but not a lot of people had faith in Pittsburgh.  Only Slug and Biggie called all 3 games correctly to earn the picks bonus for the week!

 

6) Green Bay @ Chicago - Which team will record the highest time of possession? ($4,000 for the correct team)
Chicago wins the ToP battle by less than a minute, holding the ball for 30:23 of play time to Green Bay's 29:37.

 

7) Which player will be credited with the most sacks in Week 15? ($5,000 for the correct name)
Henry Anderson and Geno Atkins were both credited with 3 sacks each. Nobody called either player.

 

8) Name the player who will rush for the most yards AND the player that will have the most receiving yards in Week 15. ($15,000 for each player named correctly, $30,000 bonus if both names are called)
Derrick Henry goes off again for 170 yards on the ground while DeAndre Hopkins pulls in 170 himself through the air to lead receivers in Week 15.  Keyser_Soze and Biggie called Hopkins and Henry respectively, earning each a nice bump in cash going into week 16.  Nobody called both players so no bonus is awarded.

-= 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.
