Football The 2019-20 Mock Gambling Thread - WEEK 2 - AbsolutSurgen starts off strong!

Recommended Posts

AbsolutSurgen comes out swinging with a big bet on the Feature Game and hits several of the higher dollar questions correctly to take the early lead going into Week 2!

 

########## WEEK 1 RESULTS ##########

 

Week 1 Feature Game - Pittsburgh Steelers (+5.5) at New England Patriots

In the most underwhelming national game of opening week, the Battle of the Six Rings saw New England lay waste to Pittsburgh by a score of 33-8.5(3+5.5).  Bets on the champs win.

 

1) What will be the first scoring play of the Feature Game? Steelers TD, Steelers FG, Steelers safety, Patriots TD, Patriots FG, Patriots safety, or other? ($300 for the correct call)

This one kicked off early, with Brady throwing a 20 yard strike to Gordon for the first score of the game (Pats TD).

 

2) Which QB will be sacked the most in the Feature Game; Brady, Roethlisberger, or will it be a tie? ($200 for the correct call)

Both quarterbacks were sacked one time each.  Calls for a tie win. Keyser_Soze was the only one to call it even.

 

3) How many penalties will be thrown and accepted in the feature game? ($500 for the correct call)

13 total penalties were assessed in this contest. Nobody called this.

 

4) Which team will have more turnovers in the Week 1 match-up between the Bills and the Jets?  ($300 for the correct call)

The Bills lost 2 fumbles and had 2 passes picked off, compared to the Jets' 1 fumble lost. Guesses on Buffalo get the cash.

 

5) Call the winners:
LA Rams at Carolina
Detroit at Arizona
San Francisco at Tampa Bay
($300 for EACH correct named game winner, $800 bonus if you call all 3 correctly)

 

The draw between the Lions and Cards hosed everyone up here.  No bonus awarded.

 

6) How many total points will be scored in the late Monday Night game (Denver at Oakland)? 0-10, 11-24, 25-36, 37-45, or 46-55 or 55+ ($500 for the correct guess)

Oakland sent their rivals packing by a score of 24-16, for a 40 point combined total. Only AbsolutSurgen, Greatoneshere, and Slug saw this coming.

 

7) Name the player who will score the first touchdown of the Washington @ Philadlephia game (by "score" we mean "the player holding the ball in the end-zone; don't name a QB unless you are guessing a rushing TD by them) ($400 for the correct answer)

Fred Davis showed everyone that he is still an athletic freak despite being 800 years old. Nobody except Case Keenum called Davis' number.

 

8) Excluding players who played Thursday night (Bears and Packers' rosters): Name the player who will rush for the most yards AND the player that will have the most receiving yards in week one. ($1,000 for each player named correctly, $3,000 bonus if both names are called)

Marlon Mack rumbled for 174 on the ground to lead all rushers in Week 1 and Sammy Watkins pulled in 198 through the air to lead all receivers.  Nobody called either player.
