Shocked that Rail likes the Christian Lancers vs the southern border school Vaqueros. CBU famed alum is Rick Warren, Rio known for being most hispanic student body 90%.

If there was a rule saying that lineup on floor should reflect student body Cal Baptist would have 3 white chicks a latina and a tall cracker, while Rio Grande valley would send out farm labor and tamale cart girl.

BTW Rail congrats on stellar day. Even the EWU pick was right side. Who knew big Samoan mvp was out-or wtf do coaches think on side kick is ever a good idea. But even worse was the intimidated officiating corp kowtowing to the Bison crowd for 60 minutes.

HOLD THE PHONE_ farm labor has closed the deficit to 3 with ten to play......a barnburner in Riverside!

I'm not sure why Facts didn't wait until 'Big Dance' time where there's more variance with cross conference/country first time matchups. Birdman this time of year is Bill Cosby in the Playboy gratto....he don't miss many.
 
I'm going to either get back in this thing..................or be beaten by the end of the night
i like Alabama to win this and score on Clemson

so i am adding this 6 pack

1ST HALF ALABAMA -3
1ST QUARTER ALABAMA - 0.5

1ST QUARTER OVER 13.5
1ST HALF OVER 28

2ND QUARTER ALABAMA -0.5
2ND QUARTER OVER 16.5


6 PLAYS ON THIS CALL
7 OVERALL ON THE BAMA GAME

IF ALABAMA DONT SHOW UP
AND I'M ELIMINATED......................I'LL PAY PAL YOU IN THE MORNING RAIL

FACTSMAN's submission of plays does not break any rules on our short list.

However, we may need to add a rule in February that states something like this, "Handicappers may submit only one play per event."

We will call it THE FACTSMAN rule.

Best of luck to Joe tonight.

think each game can have two possible plays(side and total)but no more. Giving more is letting a guy to go for broke on a correlated outcome. Would a book allow Alabama to score first, Alabama in the first quarter, Alabama in the 2nd quarter and Alabama in the first half as a parlay. It's a good strategy that should not be allowed.
 
these are not parlays.................straight bets and within the rules

when i bet baseball i call i do this once a week minimum

example............i like the reds in a warm night in july to hit a certain pitcher


I play reds game
over in the reds game

1st half reds
1st half over reds

team total reds over
yes a run in the 1st inning

all legit straight bets
does it work ?.................j/k is in costa rica have him
ask mickey if it works............he'll give you a million reasons why he hates players like this

end of the day i need to be right ONE TIME to go 6-0
IF I BET 6 GAMES.............what are the odds of hitting all 6

ROLL TIDE TONIGHT

agree, should not be allowed, and predictable that this stunt would be pulled

I know they are not parlays and can obviously be bet at any book and is a great strategy but anything correlated should not be allowed. Like obviously betting the other side of someones game is allowed at a book but not in the contest. Take ohiost -43 and over 46 which I have seen a few years ago. Betting fav and over would be allowed individually but allowing this in this contest would be wrong. Throw in first quarter over, fav, 1st half game and your allowing one result turn into many outcomes. Just what you want when your down or the lesser skilled.
 
two ways of looking at it , the way I see it.

1. Yes it is a contest ( there were no rules on this )
2. the money is still green. If factsman loses all the bets he loses 7 plays . Railbird way out in front to win the contest.


the down side of what he did is, if a bettor that is not in the contest that wants to follow a solid bettor starts getting nervous with all the bets. :oops:
 
not a stunt rail.
after this............j/k will install THE FACTSMAN RULE
which might be better then winning this thing

plus its within the rules.
so are you going to wait for it to win before you cry foul ?

i want no excuses..................like i said if i'm eliminated i'll pay you
in a hour

and i will still fill my obligation on 30 picks

last thing................i'm doing this before you had hair on your nuts
of coarse i had a PLAN B

you should respect that..............and i played within the rules

good luck

root hard for clemson matty
 
pete................if i liked the game i would do it
i'd look to end the contest being right once

no rule about correlated bets....................THEY ARE NOT PARLAYS
as j/k said they are within the rules

i'm probably going 0-7 and doing rail a favor

if not then maybe i make it interesting

but huge edge for railbird here.

shit..........if we allow cal baptist or these added games with $100 limits
we might as well add handball

my plays are within the rules.....................based on the guy that made them

its in the hands of the philistines now
through the jaw bones of a ass

anyone following sloppy joe is a fool to begin with

the one that exceeds -110 is -115 both sides so its not like i'm laying -115 with the take back @-105

2 of them are actually +110 and -even................but u failed to mention that

i triple checked spots that had -110 .............but if i said the peppermill
or charlestown wv.............a william hill book................you would be saying no way

i dont question your lines on these added games
and which of the two of us has a bad line and past posting history

enough said

now root for Clemson..............and be a man about it.

your in a win win...................if i lose you get paid
if i win...........you will cry foul and if you lose you wont pay

as i said my plays are in..................best of luck
trust me i'll lose more ground tonight

i played the games and options i like
with or without this silly contest.

any tennis leans ?
