The EOG Octagon is a head-to-head handicapping showdown featuring a winner-take-all purse of 2,500 bananas.

Each contestant provides 1,000 bananas to the prize pot with EOG supplying the added money.

The format is flexible.

This month, the participants have agreed to 40 plays over 30 days with the handicapping earning the most units being declared the winner.

All plays must land in the range of -200 to +200.

Contestants must select full-game sides or totals, first-half sides or totals, halftime sides or totals or RHE props.

Contestants are allowed only one wager per event.

Contestants will post selections using prices and pointspreads from the following establishments: CRIS, Pinnacle, BetDSI, Westgate and William Hill.

Once a contestant posts a selection, neither the contestant nor the opponent can submit a play in the same game.

To make an official selection, each contestant must submit the following four pieces of information in the post: Betting number, team name, price/pointspread and available sports book.

The handicapper with the most units at the end of the month will be declared the winner.

At month's end, the winner stays on the court for the following month and the loser goes home, except for our initial showdown which will feature a Best-of-3 format.

I'll try to recruit ABUNDY, HEIM, KANE, NUT6, PINNACLE420, SCOOPER, SVBETTOR, TOBY TYLER, VIEJO DINOSAUR and others for this space in 2019.

One clarification to the above rules: Z and I agreed over PM that any totals or R+H+E prop ending in a PUSH will be NO ACTION and will be replayed.

Everything else looks good.

Sounds good.

A pair of gentleman gamblers are squaring off in May.
