EOG's Grand Challenge presented by BetDSI (CHI_ARCHIE is our June contestant)

IMO this is a very difficult time of year for this contest. Not a whole lot out there to chose from, making this start even more impressive.

I think you need specific Rail... This is a college baseball play I see it is around your specified price +100 to -104
I'm not sure the rules. I'm assuming it's locked in once I post it. which sucks, a PPD is as good as a loss. It's my fault for not checking weather.

If it's possible to substitute out completely before first pitch. I'd take

San Diego Padres -107 tonight instead.

Even if a selected game is later PPD or NO ACTION, you can make it up anytime during the month.

However you can't deliberately chose a game that is already PPD just to get a delayed selection.

Just now seeing this post.

Your assumption was correct, ARCH.

No swapping out selections.

The total in Cincy is a go (the game is underway), the play on the Padres is a no go.

Game in Cincy was called with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning and the Reds leading, 7-0.

ARCHIE's wager on OVER 9.5 is ruled a refund.

Still 5-0.

And as ComptrBob stated, Arch is allowed to offer a replacement selection anytime during the month.

Padres lost last night, 11-5.

From a contest standpoint, everything's looking good for CHI_ARCHIE.

Still undefeated after five documented contest plays.

Okay so I can do a two play day at some point in this month, as long as they game is played by June 30?

Final score: 3-2, Phillies.

Josh Hader entered the ninth inning, nursing a one-run lead and facing the 7-8-9 hitters in the Philadelphia order.

Hader unbelievably surrendered not one but two solo shots in the ninth inning.

Miserable way to lose.

Hang in there, ARCH.

5-1

5-1

June 8th Play # 7

Yankees/Twins Over 8.5 -107

Timed the market beautifully here.

CHI_ARCHIE beat the number (game closed at 9) and because he beat the number, he then beat the game.

Final score: Twins 8 Yankees 1.

The home 'dog (+175 or thereabouts) scored a pair of runs in four consecutive innings (4th through 7th).

ARCH improves to 6-1.

I miss the Italian beef sandwiches at Ricobene's, not far from Guaranteed Rate Field.

The rice and beans in Costa Rica get old in a hurry.

The good news: I'm a svelte 210 in Costa Rica compared to a sloppy 225 in Las Vegas.
