The 32 entries that are eligible for the bracket will be put in a random number generator with a time stamp to get their seed number and placed accordingly onto a bracket. This bracket will be made available for posters that choose to participate in the bonus contest. They will fill out the complete bracket with scoring as follows:
Rd 1: each win is worth 2 points
Rd 2: each win is worth 4 points
Rd 3: each win is worth 8 points
Final 4: each win is worth 16 points
Last Capper Standing: worth 32 points
Week #1 August 8th through Week #5
Using the BMR odds page select up to 3 plays per day (all in one post) using the odds from any of the books listed
Max of 3 plays per day. Minimum of 15 plays for the week and a maximum of 21.
1 unit will be deducted for each play under the 15 minimum.
Cancelled games count as a selection.
Any play you see on BMR odds page between –300 to +300 is acceptable so get familiar with the odds page as there are quarters/half's/totals and more available.
All selections must be detailed as possible including 1.date of scheduled event, 2.name of sport, 3.type of bet with line/spread, and 4.which book selected. No lazy posting. Anything missing and that play does not count. Simple as that.
Take your time posting because you only have 1 post each day and there is no editing of picks and no 2nd post corrections/explanations. BMR has final say with any disputes.
Daily plays will look similar to this(again all in one post):
Steve Johnson+200 mL Betonline
Cleveland +120 mL 1st 5 innings Jazz
Rafael Alves +162 mL Heritage
1. All prizes to be paid by bitcoin after the contest ends and accounts are re-verified.
3. In the event of ties, prizes will be split and combined equally. In the event of a tie during head-to-head matches than the poster that selected the most plays will advance. If both have the same number of plays than the poster that turned in their selection 1st on the final day of the head-to-head week will advance. Posters may pm their picks in the final 2 days of each week to poster @Enikk
4. Members are allowed 1 entry. 1 entry allowed per household. BMR Forum reserves the right to cancel an entry if it is determined the user is in violation of the spirit of the contest, or to roll up/roll down a prize as is necessary. Members are expected to be active in the community forums throughout the contest. If found to be cheating, members will be banned from all future BMR contests. If fake or unconfirmable sportsbook information is provided than members will be eliminated immediately from the contest.
Place your picks here. You guys can grade. If I see it isn't done, than I will do it. If either of you have a issue with an opponents line than just PM and I will make a decision or look up the accurate line at the time of the post using our top 4 books if I cannot find a line at the book posted.
There are times where posters may be on the same selection or against but anymore than once would be sketchy so for this contest no more than one play on or against per day and no more than 3 times all week(if picks are turned in the last 2 days by pm than the play on or against would not be intentional). I encourage every poster to PM in their final 2 days of plays to me.
Overnight plays are allowed to be posted after 10 PM eastern as long as BMR odds page has lines for them but remember all 3 selections will need to be posted together.
-All 3 selections together
-date of event(if different from post date)
-sports league(if an unusual one)
-Team/player with mL/spread(if quarter or a half than needs to be labeled)
-Sportsbook used from BMR Odds page(Must use BMR Odds Page for lines)
Since we are looking for the best of the best, I am going to do something I usually don't do for my contests. I will allow a 3 minute window to make an obvious correction change. You cannot change a line or team/player but if you forgot to put the book/ future date/Screwed up a + or -... all 3 selections still must be in the post but I will allow an obvious error/omission. Again no team or spread changes as it will become a cluster fvck. 3 minutes and no longer and only 1 correct post.
Also, if we notice a book isn't moving their opening line on overnights than we may omit that book. Please let me know if you see any. It is ok for tonight. I was informed by a poster Jazz isn't updating. I will keep an eye on it. Tonight all plays stand. gL!!
A rule I have in the original thread but forgot in this thread is that you can NOT use the same team/total for the 1st half and full game as 2 of your plays. Example: No Toronto/Balt under 5 FF and have the under 9 FG. Also no Balt mL and Balt RL or Balt 1st 5 and FG. You are allowed to use a total and a team in the same game though. So Toronto/Balt under 5 FF and Balt ml is ok. balt/tor FF under and balt ml ff is ok. Balt ml and balt/tor over 9 is ok.
