Note that Bruce1's picks are messed up. He probably didn't pick "5" for question #7 (Rams or Pats), he probably didn't pick "52" for the MoV, he probably didn't pick "FG" for Question #12, (Yes or No) etc.

Wizard, it looks like question 10 not reported on your charts.

Also Question #20. Probably the max number of columns for a table was exceeded.

Thanks, I just fixed it. And for 20 too.

Yeah, he just sent a list of answers without numbering them and forgot one. I just fixed it, hopefully correctly.

Here are the unedited Nathan picks :D.

Quote: Nathan


1. Winning team. Patriots. They have made FIVE Superbowl wins. The Eagles winning last year was literally a last minute fluke. Aren't the Rams a far subpar Team than The Patriots?
2. Will the coin toss land on heads or tails? Tails.
3. Total points. 125.
4. Margin of victory The Patriots by like a WIDE margin.
5. Total number of touchdowns. 10
6. Total number of field goals. 8
7. Team to score first. Rams
8. Team to score last. Patriots
9. Will the team to score first win? I think not.
10. First score (TD, FG, or safety) Field Goal
11. Last score (TD, FG, or safety) Touchdown
12. Will there be a safety? Yes
13. Will the game go into overtime? Yes.
14. Will there be a successful two-point conversion? Yes
15. Will there be a failed field goal attempt? Yes.
16. Longest field goal. 10 yards
17. Longest touchdown. 20 yards.
18. Will there be a defensive or special teams touchdown? I think so.
19. Will the total points be a prime number? Yes
20. Total Scrabble points in the last name of the first player to score a touchdown. 50 points. I literally pulled that number out if my ass. ;)

It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I will lay 100-1 odds for a $10 bet that Nathan does not win the contest. My $1,000 against your $10. First 10 takers. Must respond by 9pm Pacific time tonight and say so in this thread.

(Longest field goal of 10 yards.... if there is no field goal what happens?)


Edit.... Nathan cannot change her picks, nor can any other members from the list the Wiz has already posted

Thank you for your trust. It's a good bet, but I think it will fall to -800 by Sunday.

Better yet, find somebody who wants to bet the YES and split the difference between the Yes and No prices. Why go to strangers?



I think the days of being able to find a -700 are over, might be some -750s but will now take a lot more work or luck to find. The big loss is the game not being decided by 3 points bets have gone to -500 virtually everywhere. Used to be a great bet at -400.

Yes, to make money. Second purpose is to find out what happens to that prop if there is no field goal. Will the person who picked the lowest yardage win the bet? Or does that bet become a tie for all participants?
