After a big winning week and then a basically break even week, I feel primed for a big losing week.

When selecting any of the following six props...

First Drive FG Made? YES
Both Teams Score 25+ Points? YES
Neither Team Scores 25+ Points? YES
Will the Game go to Overtime? YES
Will There be A Successful 2PT Conversion? YES
Will there be a Safety? YES

...be sure to specify which GAME it is for, as each of these props are listed for both games.

However, for any of the other 26 props, if you copy and paste the prop into your message, you don't have to note the game, as the prop itself will identify it.

Thank you very much for this post and great catch!

I have gone through the Lines and added the matchup as part of the Line for these selections. Generally speaking, I am loathe to open Picks prior to making my own,(when I am playing, but also, in general, because it's easier to open all the PM's at once in different tabs) but I must make an exception this time in order to get clarification (if it is lacking) if anyone made these sorts of picks.

Thus far, I have only received three sets of Picks. If anyone feels as though my seeing these Picks will compromise the game, then please let me know and I will simply drop out. It's not a matter for a vote; if any single person feels that way---just PM me and say so and you will remain anonymous. If nobody PM's me requesting I drop out within the next seven days, then I will consider any complaints about me seeing these three sets of picks moot.

UPDATE:

I have looked at these three sets of Picks and only one of them included anything relevant to the Game Props pointed out by EdCollins. Fortunately, the letter of the selection was included, and because the letter is unshared for that particular prop, I know what game it belongs to.

Anyway, if even one person thinks I should drop out, simply PM me and say so. I can say that I have already forgotten what all of the Picks were except the applicable Game Prop and that's only because I had to check if those two props shared the same letter.

Mission,

The only reason I think you should drop out is if all three of these happen:

1) You opened and looked at my picks.
2) You made all of the opposite selections for your picks
3) You win the contest because you faded my picks.

On second thought, making you drop out is too harsh a punishment for this. Maybe split 1st place prize money with me instead. ;)

1. Mission, you come across to all of us as so incredibly honest that I am sure that no one harbors a thought that you are trying to take advantage of a special situation.

2. Surely, we must all be aware that the only reason that we have a contest is because you have contributed the prize money. (Yeah, some donations have helped, but by far most of the prize money has come from you.) This inoculates you against any suspicion of dirty play.

3. If you do win one of these contests we would all be delighted for you. But we would also shrug our shoulders and laugh our heads off that such an unlikely outcome had actually occurred. ;)

Good luck.

Honestly, I don't remember what your Picks were or if you have even made them yet. I can say that I was mostly planning to bet props this week, so as a result, my Picks are not going to directly conflict with anyone's that I have seen as only one person bet a prop so far and there is no way to bet its opposite, even if I wanted to.

1.) Oh, I promise that I am not the world's most honest person, far from it. That said, the integrity of these games has always been very important to me because I enjoy all of the fun people have with them. While I'm not above lying (in general), I can also say that I am not interested enough in financial enrichment that I would lie for that purpose.

Or, perhaps I'm honest. The honest man admits that he sometimes lies? I don't know. Either way, in those ways that lying sometimes benefits me, none of those ways would ever apply to the forum that I can think of.

2.) I appreciate that! My strategy this week is going to be much higher risk. I'm going to spread it out a bit, but it will become clear that my Picks are correlated and essentially clearly hoping for one broader event.

3.) Haha. I think that I'm actually one of the most consistent when I do participate in the WoV Picks Game, unfortunately, I have been consistently slightly above average and have never won anything!

Isiah Pacheco 75+ Rushing Yards? YES +310 $100
JuJu Smith-Schuster 75+ Receiving Yards? YES +310 $50
Bengals @ Chiefs Total OVER 47.5 +100 $100


NOTE: Mukke was the player with the Pick that I saw that involved a game prop of the three sets of Picks I saw before I should have. As everyone can see, my Picks sell out on the Bengals offense and count on KC to at least keep up, so Mukke picked a game that I had no intention of Picking anyway, and even if I did, there is no way for me to bet in a way that opposes Mukke's pick. Thus, knowing this one pick offered no possible advantage. Also, the 2PT props had a different letter, which is how I knew Mukke's prop was for this game.

Picks are listed opposite the order they were received, so the other Picks I saw were Joeman's and VegasBrent's. That said, I just glanced at those to make sure that there were no ambiguous GAME PROPS. VegasBrent has no game props and Joeman's game props already included the teams involved. I can say that even if I had memorized what they were doing (I didn't) it wouldn't have changed my strategy.

Let's have some fun, guys!!! Enjoy the games!

EDIT NOTE: The edit on this post was simply to move the amount IndyJeffrey is betting on each Pick from the left to the right.

MISCELLANEOUS STUFF

1.) PLEASE CHECK YOUR PICKS AGAINST WHAT IS LISTED!!!

-I had to reformat roughly 75% of the Picks that I received so there would be something close to a Universal format. I did my best in this regard, but it is possible that I got something wrong, so if you read this, please compare what you have to what I did.

2.) I LOVE Wizard's Picks!!!

-The irony of, "Safety, YES," was just brilliant, and I think, intentional. Wizard knew he had to take a shot, so even if neither team scores two points by way of Safety, I award Wizard all of the irony points that exist.

3.) Not to pat myself on the back...but this game flipping rules!!!

-I love this game! You guys can be assured that I will do a Playoff Picks Game every year and this will be the permanent game structure!

That said, mistakes have been made:

A.) Next season, all possible prop bets will be assigned different letters in the Conference Championship round and Super Bowl.

B.) Next season, there will be a rule to simply copy/paste all Picks you want from the list and add the bet amount at the end.

Go Bengals offense and everyone have fun watching the games! Thank you to everybody for playing and, indirectly, causing me to want to put together this game!

Of course! Wizard as an example had to pick long shots, as did I. Since there is no difference from finishing last or 6th, if you are wallowing near the bottom might as well Ďgo big or go homeí. The most likely result for me is Iím at $0 after this week. Same for Wizard. If both my picks magically hit Iím top two or three most likely.

MissionÖ. In summary, prop bets are WAY more fun that pointspread or money line bets!

All of which was predictable agree. So I expected someone in the cellars to instead go safe today, hope everyone else strikes out on the long shots, and be positioned to take the long shots in the Super Bowl instead.

I believe this is our consensus.



A total of $4,134 risked on the 49ers/Eagles Game. Most popular is Eagles -2.5




A total of $3,499 risked on the Bengals/Chiefs game. Most popular is both Bengals and Chiefs each scoring 25+ points.


For obvious reasons, I won't be able to post the results immediately after the games.

I imagine this weekend would be asking a lot of you from a programming standpoint.

If it helps, I was half-expecting to hand grade the Picks for this weekend and really don't mind if that is the case.

Actually, I don't have a "program" this time. It's just a spreadsheet and it's all ready to go. All I need are the YES/NO answers to the props. All I have to do now is enter YES or NO in the appropriate table and a lookup function then grades everyone's guesses. Formulas calculate the amount won lost based upon the odds I entered, and it will total all of their win/losses for me. Super simple.

It will take an hour or so, after the last game, before the answers to some of those props can be found online, I suspect.

My technical jargon leaves something to be desired. I just refer to anything that I wouldn't even know how to start doing as a, "Program."

I can't believe I have to ask this. Now that I'm about to score it I'm not sure what is correct... and I can make a case for either side.

First Drive Bengals/Chiefs FG Made: YES

Is that First Drive OF THE GAME? If so, this prop is a No. The Bengals punted on the game's first drive.

Or is that First Drive FOR EITHER TEAM? If so, this prop is a YES, as the Chiefs scored a FG on THEIR FIRST DRIVE.


Thanks.

OUCH! I had $100 on Chiefs/Bengals to go into Overtime at +1000 and that doofus commits an out-of-bounds roughing penalty with 4 seconds left.

I probably would have had $1,000 (in contest funds) without that penalty, instead I have zero and am out of the contest.

I believe I already have everything graded and scored. Obviously, my apologies if anything is in error. If so, no worries... I'll fix it right away.

Here's my lookup table for the bets and props. Note that most all props were NOs. Of the four that were YES, only one of them had any action.






Edit: That should be +165 as the odds for Mahomes passing 300 yards.

Recall that breakage off of whole dollar amounts are rounded down.

Please double check everything. I had to strip the amount bet from each selecton, and enter it in a different cell. And note that earlier, Mission said he also did a small bit of reformatting, for uniformity.

It sucks that so many are out, but I think weíre sticking with this as a Playoff format. You take your shots when itís your only choice; the Bengals offense lets you down; itís fun!

For my part, Iíll definitely not be so conservative the first two weeks again. Iíll probably still go for hedging with a chance at double wins, but Iíll actually have a bit of a side Iím taking overall.

So, Iím not so sure. Perhaps the best strategy is to be conservative in the early rounds, and have a bankroll going into SB and then go big.

I understand the all or bust strategy in every round though, given the entry fee.

OUCH! I had $100 on Chiefs/Bengals to go into Overtime at +1000 and that doofus commits an out-of-bounds roughing penalty with 4 seconds left.

Yep, just hand the game to the Chiefs. Aaaarrrrgggghhhh.

At the risk of putting a blemish on my otherwise perfect Sunday, I actually had the UNDER on the Eagles game, not the over.

I'm open to suggestions on which longshot to go with, and I will split my winnings with whomever's idea I end up using. In case two or more make the same suggestion, only the first will qualify. I figure it has to be at least 30-1 to have a prayer.

I would suggest betting it all on Overtime. It's a longshot but still gives you a chance to win if others don't bet overtime. Of course, by me posting this the leaders will realize betting a small amount on overtime would be beneficial to them.

Free advice, good luck!

I'd suggest here, in the unlikely event we somehow cash in.

Over time, a safety and a two-point conversion might do it.

If you can bet on specifically a One Point Safety happening (something that has not happened in professional football). Do that. Otherwise, I would go with successful 2 point conversion.

Probably betting $1 on a one point safety would win the contest. I still remember the one in the Fiesta Bowl about ten years ago.

I'm hoping the minimum bet stays at $50, so I have one Hail Mary left in the contest.

Have the bets been posted yet for the Superbowl? Not sure if I missed something or if they just weren't posted yet.
