Mike's $22 Entry 5-Week Point Spread Pick'em

Private Pool Created By Member Mike
Commish Message
Okay, sorry for the delay posting this, but it was a technical thing. Database query that used to work perfectly fine ranking players in the pick pools before, no longer worked. I've been working on this numerous times since the World Cup. Finally, FINALLY, figured out the problem and got it working again. Which allowed me to mark Luis as our pool winner, give him the virtual trophy and now what you've been waiting for, the payouts...

Luis Suarez ate ... $110 (1st overall) + $52 (Week 5) = $162
mmhast1 ... $66 (2nd overall)
cinvasion ... $52 (Week 1)
FC Barcelona ... $52 (Week 2)
Garylevel3 ... $52 (Week 3)
cneilson ... $52 (Week 4)

New idea time! Lets do a 5-week point spread pick'em pool. I am going to run this as a private pool since I don't know how many will join. Here are the details:

- pick all games against the spread each week, Weeks 1 to 5
- most correct picks win the week, and we will use the MNF total points tie-breaker
- $22 entry ($20 to the prize pool, $2 to cover Interac fees)
- payouts weekly 1st place 12% (* 5 = 60%); overall 1st place 25%, 2nd place 15%

We are starting Week 1 but feel free to join anytime to try to win the weekly prize. Send payment by Interac or PayPal. Lets do this!

Mike (Oct 9 '18): Luis Suarez ate my hamster wins the week with 12 and takes the overall title as we put a wrap on our first 5-week point spread pick'em. Let me do some calcs for the money winners. Hope everyone wants in the second 5-week pick'em that starts this week.
Mike (Oct 2 '18): cneilson wins the week! He won the free pick'em, so why not this one too? Hope you played some Pro-Line too. mmhast1 is in first overall at 36, Garylevel3 and keithkim #2 a point behind with only one week to go. I will create our next 5-week point spread pick'em (Weeks 6-10) this week.
Mike (Sep 28 '18): I cannot get the Thursday night game right!
Mike (Sep 25 '18): Missed the Thursday game but Garylevel3 still comes through to win the week with 11 right! Nice job. Just edged out keithkim, Eugenius and Luis Suarez ate my hamster (yes, that is his login name) each with 10. Only two weeks to go in our five week "tourney" and we have a three-way tie for first overall between Garylevel3, keithkim and mmhast1. I'm just going for a weekly win at this point.
Mike (Sep 18 '18): Congrats FC Barcelona winning Week 2! That was a clear win with 11 right, no tie-breaker necessary. At this point we have 20 paid entries so to win a week is $48. Overall we have a two-way tie between jeremywww and mmhast1 at 19. Prelim point spreads are in for Week 3.
Mike (Sep 14 '18): I am now 0-2 on Thursdays!
Mike (Sep 12 '18): He didn't even pick the Thursday game but cinvasion wins Week 1 with 11 correct! Congrats! As of now we have 18 paid entries, so that is $43. I will adjust that if any one else pays to join. All payouts after the end of the pool.
Mike (Sep 12 '18): Hi J.P. Against the spread is like the Vegas point spread assigned to each game. Instead of just picking the straight up winner of the game, the point spread factors in the result. Say Baltimore is favoured by 6.5 over Chicago. To pick Baltimore, they have to win the game by 7 or more to get the pick right. If Chicago wins, or loses by 6 or less, then picking Chicago is correct. A favourite is usually shown with the point spread as a negative, i.e. BAL -6.5. An underdog is a positive, i.e. CHI +6.5.
Jeep Patriot (Sep 12 '18): It's the first time I'm thinking of doing this. What does bet against the spread mean?
