GENERAL QUESTION: Do you guys like having the Lines and updated Standings in the Official Thread, or would you prefer it just be the Lines and Picks? I have the thread Closed and Pinned to the top of Sports Betting, so its main purpose is just for people to be able to find the lines quickly if there's a lot of conversation going on in this thread.

I like having the standings pinned there also. I might feel differently if I wasnít currently on top of them though. :-)
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

Greetings!

This post is simply to notify everyone that the Week 6 Pick reminders are now being sent.

It appears that fourteen sets of Picks are in, no players are Suspended, and I am still myself---so I need to send out ten reminders. Round number. Nice.

And, ten reminders have been sent. Actually, eleven have been sent, but one was a screwup.

Greetings!

It would appear that we have three people missing this week---with one being deliberate. I'm half wondering if either of those other two are deliberate because I did hear from one person that the PM feature was briefly down, so when I post the Lines next week, I will provide an Email (via PM) to send the Picks to in case that ever happens in the future; I've never seen that happen before. I'd ask only that you try PM first, then go ahead and use the E-Mail if it doesn't go through.

In any event, the Week 6 Picks are as follows:

Mission146:
Colts +4
Chargers +2
Cowboys OVER 50.5
Browns OVER 37
Bears OVER 44

Ravens -4

FourFiveFace:

Browns +8.5
Colts +4-Confidence
Patriots +3
Cardinals +7

SCOLIST:
Skips Week 6

JML24:
Skips Week 6

Scolist sent a PM Skipping Week 6, so that was deliberate. If anyone says that they attempted to send their Picks, and that the PM didn't go through, I'll have to try to figure out an equitable way to address that. On the one hand, I'd hate for someone to unintentionally take a Skip Week when they intended to submit their picks, but on the other hand, there is nearly a three day window within which to submit one's Picks...so the PM feature being out for a few hours (or whatever it was)...I don't know.

On the third hand, which is one too many, it's not like people should be expected to check their PM Outbox, so if they click on the send button and then close the window, they would have every reason to believe their PM was sent.

PERFECTION BONUS TRACKER:

Week 1: N/A
Week 2: GenWyzgy ($20)
Week 3: N/A
Week 4: N/A
Week 5: N/A
Week 6: Perfection Bonus Available: $40

EQUITABLE SOLUTION: I believe I have thought of an equitable solution if either of the other two players who missed claim that they attempted to send Picks. However, I will not say what this equitable solution is unless/until such a claim is made. If there is a claim to be made, I would ask that it be made prior to next week's Picks being posted.

The players who missed appear to be Scolist (deliberate), FourFiveFace (Reminder Sent, Intent Unknown) and JML24 (Reminder Sent, Intent Unknown).

SECOND EDIT: After a little investigation, JML24 has not been logged in since 10/10/23; therefore, he could not have possibly attempted to send Picks. FourFiveFace was logged in as recently as today, so he may have attempted to do so and the PM did not go through. One of the reports I have would have it such that this issue occurred during what would have been latePM/EarlyAM last night, so it's possible FourFiveFace attempted to send.

I have spoken to FourFiveFace who I believe may have attempted to send his Picks last night.

I have received his intended Picks, but unfortunately, they included the Ravens game; the Ravens game is in progress, so I cannot accept Picks that include that game.

Given that we know JML24 did not attempt to make Picks, I have given FourFiveFace the option of either swapping the Ravens Pick for something else (and having his Picks play this week), or alternatively, to use his Skip Week.

FourFiveFace's Picks have been added to the list as he opted to replace his Ravens Pick with a different one. FourFiveFace shall retain his Skip Week as I have ample reason to believe that he attempted to submit his Picks at a time prior to the deadline.

The other players (who submitted their Picks later) to report issues with PM's are SOOPOO and JStephe8WVU. The latter states that he first attempted to send his Picks yesterday evening, between 7:30-8:30p.m. EST; SOOPOO did not specify when he first attempted to send his Picks.

When I post next week's Lines, I will send all players a PM with a backup E-Mail to send Picks in case the PM fails. Alternatively, players can choose to simply always send their Picks to this E-Mail, if they wish. The reason I say that is because players might have to check their PM Outbox to see that a PM did not go through, so it seems that there is going to be an additional step, either way.

However, with the E-Mail available to everyone, by one means or another, all Picks will be expected to be submitted by deadline even if there is a PM issue.

I apologize for any inconvenience caused to anyone.

Even worse, you and I both made confidence bets on the 49ers to cover - which now seems very unlikely.

The forum made 18 picks on the 49ers ATS and only 1 pick on the Browns -the latter a pick by FourFiveFace. Apparently, FourFive Face is a supernatural genius at picking. And just as apparent, everyone else is hell-bent on depriving Mission of the "You Suck" prize.

Right???

Iím 0-3 so far this week and at 20% going in. I should be feeling great right now, but I have to sweat people picking as badly as I do every single week!

Actually, you submitted:

DJChaps:
Vikings -2.5
Bengals -3
Lions -3
Raiders -3 Confidence
Raider UNDER 41.5

and my spreadsheet spit you out as the only non-complying entry this week. So I looked at your picks, and corrected your last entry to make 'Raider' a plural 'Raiders.' And then you went on to glory! We have a strict "No Tipping" policy so no gratuity is expected.

Seriously, congrats on the perfect week. No one else is alive for a perfect week so you won't chop. I'm at 0-5 before the Monday Night game, so I may have a "Bizarro World" kind of perfect week. :(

Week 6 Picks for the Contest Participants were 59 - 75.

...<SNIP>...

Yes, they were.

For a 44% win rate (or 56% win for the Fade WoV Fund). Thank y'all. Sincerely. Even unJon, and as Executive Treasurer and Chief Operating Officer of the above referenced Fund, I want y'all to know I really do appreciate it. And we can all look forward to feeling all warm & fuzzy together when it comes time to cash out the season's FWVF tickets, knowing that DrawingDead will be using the money to make life a little more rewarding for some hard working librarians:

...<SNIP>...

Cumulative records for the entire field of contestants for this season (through week 6) is 256 - 252.

link to original post

Are you sure? That total of 508 would seem to amount to fewer than three and a half picks per week per player. From my simple addition of the numbers in the "Record" column for the "Week 6 Cumulative Results" above I get 429W + 440L. Am I mistaken?

Regardless of that, even though the FWoV Fund has done okay since getting started a few weeks ago, to really make the holidays merry for those ladies of library science folks need to get the overall long-range win rate down closer to 40%. Cancelling out selections made on both sides to take only the net of each does have the effect of materially increasing the ROI and cutting the vig involved, but still. While folks here are admirably better at picking losers than the EV of fading random drunks in a bar, playing the reverse of "winning" mid to upper 40s really won't provide very well for those nubile performance artists. They deserve better, and with unJon on-board helping a little now, I'm confident your collective efforts can make it happen. All together now, let's see un 40-ish%. You can do it. Yes you can!

The funny thing is my average beats the juice over a nine year period, though maybe not now, but I have been legitimately trying to come in last as of Week 3.

Greetings!

This is the notification that I am sending Week 7 reminders. Week 7, right? I think so.

Picks Received: 12

Mission146's: 1

Reminders Sent: 12

Total Players: 25

I also forgot to do the E-Mail thing last time I posted Lines, so I'll be sure to do that next time I post lines. I think a repeat PM issue is highly unlikely as that has never happened before and seems to have existed for no more than an hour.

And...done!

My Picks were as much as random this week. I have some cushion for my bottom spot and have no idea as to any of these games. I'd have used my Skip Week, except I might need it more later on.

Greetings!

I'm currently checking into two Skip Weeks, so please bear with me:

DJChaps---No picks, reminder sent. I assume this was intentional as it would be a weird week to dip after just winning a Perfection Bonus sufficient to cover Entry Fees and then some.

AssWhooperMcDaddy---Picks Added. He did not Skip. I'd accidentally closed the tab and had to start over again, so that's why I was looking. I thought only one had skipped.

Lots of love for the Browns, Lions and Commanders! Even Mission picked the Browns!!!!!

Miplet is very brave, he picked the Patriots to cover as his confidence bet! Wizard also picked the Pats? And we all know that these two guys are not the dullest knives in the drawer.

Cowboys on bye. Last two games on your chart are last week games. Maybe didnít delete the game matrix from last week before posting this one?

Can't believe the Chiefs and Chargers couldn't score 8 points in the entire second half to hit the over!

Guess I should be glad the 2nd quarter was such a score-fest.
