Kinda sucks I didn't get to bet my team more often, but I really think the Seahawks aren't great bets ATS.

I like their chances against the Cowboys on Saturday. I think they are going to be about three point underdogs and I think they will win outright.

I also had a blast. Thanks for everyone who helps make this happen!

I thought it was worth noting that Sparty10k is my brother. Here is how the final standings look -

GenWyzgy 41 44 48.24%
UnJon 48 52 48.00%
Sparty10k 44 48 47.83%

So, Sparty10k took UnJon's $50 by .07 percentage points! Not that I even remembered such a prize existed, I was hoping to be part of the big split for most average. But I guess I get the family bragging rights - (If one can brag about a .482 winning percentage).

Update.

1st place : DJATC $825 ($562.50) - pmt arranged
2nd place: Gwae $100 ($362.50) -pmt made
3rd place : JohnZimbo $25
T-Average : EdCollins $18.75 from Mission
T-Average : Kuma $18.75 "
T-Average: Rigondeaux $18.75 "
T-Average: terapined $18.75 "
Closest to unjon: Sparty10k $50
Closest to Cleveland Browns: Gordonm888 $25
You suck: Troopscott $75 from Mission

Additional prize money: $25 in escrow from scolist, to be awarded as Mission sees fit. Scolist has confirmed that is his intention.

My suggestion, without looking back, is that it go to the person with the most 5-0/6-0 weeks who did not otherwise win a prize. Maybe that's too complicated, idk.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

congrats to Djatc and GWAE. I had a lot of fun thank you Mission. I am sheepish about my poor performance, but wait until next year!
Sometimes, people are just a bottomless mystery. And, after all, this is just a sh*tty little forum in the sun-less backwaters of the online world.

Is 62 losses the all time record for futility?

I've no idea, but I think this is proof of why bookies get rich.

Perhaps those in first and last place will reveal whether their selections each week were random or highly studied?
I came in a smidgen over 50.0% while not having heard of some of those teams and never deliberating more than a few minutes.

New info. See above for prize updates. Mission has paid the escrow on the bonuses.

scolist's $25 and kuma's $18.75 have been reserved for partial seeding the playoff pool game Mission intends to run. That should happen pretty quickly, so watch this space!

Again, please PM me with info on how you want to receive your winnings, if you haven't already. Thanks!
