  1. [2020] Bowl Betting Bonanza

    Welcome to the Inaugural Bowl Betting Bonanza! The goal is to wager your money on bowl games and have the highest balance after the national championship. The winner will be crowned meta-cfbhc-bowl-champion, which is entirely meaningless...but probably means you're smarter than everyone else or something. Basic Rules Each player starts with $1000. Players place bets *against the spread* for chosen games. Players do not have to bet on every game, just the games/lines they like. This is a bonanza, not a pick-em. Player rankings/balances will be released after each set of games (or as vtgorilla’s schedule allows). Betting Rules If a player wins a bet, the amount they wagered is doubled and returned to their balance. Money won is immediately available for wagering on the next set of games. Players may only place 1 wager per game. You can’t bet on both sides or add additional money to a bet once posted. This is just to keep things simple for me. Players can place a bet for any game in the future (with a line posted), not just the next day’s games. It immediately deducts from the player’s balance to hold the wager. Wagers can be placed in the comments below or PM’d to vtgorilla. All posted/PM’d wagers are final at the time vtgorilla records them. Your wager must be posted and recorded by vtgorilla before a game occurs. Since posts can be edited, a PM is a more secure way to place a bet near a deadline - since I can review the message in my timestamped email to ensure that the wager wasn't edited after viewing the game results. Wagers should be posted in the following format for easy processing: $100 Bowl name, Selected team +3 $70 Bowl name, Selected team -14.5 Penalties Wagering money you don’t have in your account, results in an automatic loss of your wager, regardless of game outcome. Anyone editing wagers *in an attempt to scam the game* will be branded a loser and I will target all of your croots next season. Immediate edits for typos or whatever are fine, just know that I'm going to record it as I see it, so try to be right the first time.

    Account Balance Update! There's a pretty distinct pecking order at the moment. But the big money lines on the Heisman winner could really shake up the final standings. So get your Heisman bets in now! Heisman is the last wager available in the Bonanza.

    ATTENTION: THE GAME LINE HAS MOVED (again) Penn State vs. UCF (+5)
  5. [2020] Bowl Betting Bonanza

    Account Balance Update! Last chance to get in your National Championship bets! (I mean, maybe. Depends when the game is posted.) ATTENTION: THE GAME LINE HAS MOVED Penn State vs. UCF (+3.5) The account balance below is the amount you still have available to wager. This is the last wager available, except for the Heisman props. The Bonanza will end promptly with the announcement of the Heisman winner in the next couple days, when the winning order of gamblers will be announced. Account balance is equivalent to: $1000 + winning wagers - losing wagers - future wagers And if you're left wondering "how do I move past RANDOMUSERNAME?" Then perhaps you should consider the national championship prop bets. There are no current wagers placed on the props, so you can sneak up on some mofos. Also the Heisman moneylines provide several times your wager if you are correct.

    Hell of a game, panther. You put up more points on me than anyone else all season.

    Betting Trends LIVE! Wagers have yet to be placed on... Southern Miss (+4) in the Heart of Dallas Bowl! OR Florida (-5) in the Music City Bowl! The money is coming in at 2-to-1 favoring Missouri in the Texas Bowl! News Alert: vegasgorilla denies canceling accounts of bettors who have wagered on Oklahoma State. "Don't buy into the rumors, I'll take anyone's money," he declared.
  16. [2020] Bowl Betting Bonanza

    Account Balance Update! caesari sits on his cash while everyone else tanks. The house was a leaky cauldron before yesterday's games with a balance of $-11580. But after a couple of underdog surprises, the house is only down $-3895. Account balance is equivalent to: $1000 + winning wagers - losing wagers - future wagers* *Does not include wagers placed after yesterday's games yet.

    Betting Trends LIVE! No bettors have wagered on Texas (+2.5) in the Armed Forces Bowl! $3500 will currently be paid out if SMU covers the spread! The largest single wager of the season was placed on Mississippi State (+0) in the Gator Bowl! 60% of the action is on Army (+13.5) in the Military Bowl! Don't Miss Out on Your... $100 FREE MATCH BET Review the rules before wagering
  18. [2020] Bowl Betting Bonanza

    Yes. @Jumbo your line on SMU is backwards. I assume you typo'd it. I'm going to take it as SMU -2.5 unless you tell me otherwise.
  19. [2020] Bowl Betting Bonanza

    Yes, except there's a limit to $100 on the match bet. So in this case ($500 prop bet) your free match bet would still only be $100 on LSU. Does that make sense? You definitely *can* do it this way...but you're risking more than you're potentially gaining if you bet more than the $100 max match. I'll wait for your response before locking it down.
  20. [2020] Bowl Betting Bonanza

    FREE $100 MATCH BET! Bet on any blind national championship prop, and receive a match bet on either of the semi-final games. Free match bet is for the same amount wagered on the prop, up to $100. For example, if you wager: $69 Blind Underdog +2.5 You receive a match bet of $69 to place on either UCF vs. Pitt or LSU vs Penn State. A winning match bet pays out the value into your account. A losing match bet has no impact on your account. It is essentially a free wager. Bets must be placed by Thursday, October 19 at 11:59pm to be eligible. Prop bet and match bet should be placed simultaneously for easy record keeping. You must have the appropriate amount in your account for the bet placed, obviously. Props are listed in the OP

    Account Balance Update! bingo failed to wager on Sunday's games, allowing the plebs to creep closer. caesari and ajyoungmark both got their second $1000 payoff on today's games, but we all know continuous, giant bets don't pay off in the long run. It will be interesting to see how long they keep their momentum! Account balance is equivalent to: $1000 + winning wagers - losing wagers - future wagers Fun Fact: The house is currently at $-11580 not even including the free thousand handed to all participants. Whoever made these games lines should be stripped of their head coaching job at whatever terrible basketball school they coach for.

    Account Balance Update! Bingo is smarter than you. Seriously, he's 9/10 on picks ATS with only loss landing on his second lowest wager. He has quadrupled his starting money after 4 days of betting. Lots of people lingering near the $2000 mark with Stinsy is still in the #2 spot overall...he just has already placed his wagers for Sunday's game so it doesn't show in the chart. Pre-Sunday wagers, he's at 2100. Account balance is equivalent to: $1000 + winning wagers - losing wagers - future wagers New Game Line! CFP Semifinal: LSU vs. Penn State (-11)

    You do not have this much money. Unless I've calculated wrong/missed something, you have 2400 total with 1700 already allocated to bets on Friday and Saturday. This leaves 700 for further wagers until Friday and/or Saturday's bets are resolved.
