MNF Contraption Gambling! Week 4 Results, Bet On Week 5 Now!

Postby jdelgado06 on Tue Oct 06, 2009 9:46 am

This is a thread to play a little gambling game in conjunction with compscure's Contraption Football competition

You can join at any time during the rest of the contraption football season. When you join, you will be given 100 :cwheel: 's to bet with. You can bet on any number of matchups every week, with a minimum of 10 :cwheel: 's per bet (and a maximum of the total number of :cwheel: 's in your account).

Every week, everyone will be given an additional 50 :cwheel: bonus! That way, if you lose all your :cwheel: one week, don't worry, you can still make a comeback because there will be 50 :cwheel: 's in your account to bet with the next week. NOTE - To receive the 50 :cwheel: bonus, you MUST be active the week before. That is, if you don't make any bets in week 4, you won't get 50 :cwheel: in week 5... you must at least make a minimum 10 :cwheel: bet to get the next bonus.

If you are new to how compscure's football games work, what happens is that two people are paired up to play against each other. They play 3 different mini games against each other trying to earn points in different ways, and in the end, the one with the most points is the winner. You are here to bet on who the winner will be. There will be no point spreads (keeping it simple, at least for now), but there will be odds. Odds are determined only on past football results, i.e. a competitors W/L record.

Odds Example:
You will see something like this -

Compscure (-110) vs Jdelgado06 (+110)

the +110 by Jdelgado06 means that Jdelgado06 is the underdog and compscure is the favorite. If you bet 100 :cwheel: 's on jdel to win, and jdel does win, then you win 110 :cwheel: 's! On the other hand, you would have to bet 110 :cwheel: 's on compscure to win 100 :cwheel: 's if compscure ends up winning. And if you lose, well, you lose whatever you bet.

For people that aren't familiar with odds and betting, read my post here

I'll apply a simple formula based on Win/Loss record to come up with the odds each week. I'll also keep a running tally of everyone's account and their betting record on this post.


Rules: (updated 10/15/09)
- The actual competitors in a specific matchup are not allowed to bet on their own game
- UPDATE: This week we are going to allow you to bet on yourself. You may not bet on your opponent, only on yourself.
- You can post your bets on this thread if you want, but make sure you also PM THEM TO ME. Only bets PMed to me will be counted
- You can change/cancel your bet(s) up until the results are posted. I'll try to keep all bets that have been made up to date on the 2nd post in this thread
- At the end of the season (playoffs included), the one with the most :cwheel: 's wins!
- You can join at any time, and you get to start with 100 :cwheel: 's, however, once you lose all your :cwheel: 's, you may NOT rejoin, so bet wisely!
- You can join at any time, and you get to start with 100 :cwheel: 's. Each week, as long as you made at least one bet during the week, you will get a 50 :cwheel: bonus the next week! So if you lose all your :cwheel: , don't worry, you can make a comeback! Don't forget to make at least one bet each week if you want the bonus though.
- If a game you bet on ends in a tie, the bet will be ruled as a push... that is, you get your :cwheel: 's back, but don't win or lose anything.
- If a competitor does not submit their designs to compscure in a game you bet on, the bet will be ruled as a push... that is, you get your :cwheel: 's back, but don't win or lose anything.

I'm going to restate one of the above rules again right here, right now, really big, for emphasis!
- You can post your bets on this thread if you want, but make sure you also PM THEM TO ME. Only bets PMed to me will be counted

Let's get ready to gamble! Just place a bet by PM before the next deadline in compscure's comp to enter!

wow this looks fun... I'm in

in the future... this could be fun to bet on all kinds of competitions, with your money carring over from comp to comp. we could even have salaries depending on our own performance in competitions... it would be like a whole FC economy!

@sparkle, don't forget to PM me with your bet to make it official.

I updated the OP rules with a couple notes regarding ties and non-entries. As soon as you make a bet, you will posted on the OP on the bettor list, and your bet will be posted in the 2nd post.

@jonny - hah, yeah... i've wanted to do something in terms of betting on competitions for a while. Compscure's football approach to a comp just presented the perfect opportunity. We'll see how this goes. Hopefully everyone doesn't lose all their :cwheel: right away




QUESTION:
The two bettors that have made bets so far bet all 100 of their :cwheel: 's.
That actually begs a question - Do you guys think it would be more fun if every week you get 100 :cwheel: given to you to bet with? That way if you lose it all you aren't done for good? Just a thought. I'll leave it open for discussion for the rest of today.

I think it would be a good idea if there was an upper limit to the amount you bet on a game, so people will get broke less often.

I also think that if someone gets bankrupt they should be able to start from scratch with their original 100 :cwheel: s

cool idea!

I definitely like your idea to give people a weekly allowance, so they don't crap out in week one.

the way the MNF scoring is set up , there shouldn't be any ties.

Allow something like two additional buy-ins to prevent people from simply betting everything each round realizing that if they go bankrupt they can just continue to play by re-loading.

really? what if my O scores on your D. Your O scores on my D. and in the loose ball, neither of us moved the ball at all?

edit: oh right.. home field advantage decides it. nevermind.

I thought it made more sense to disallow betting on your own game. I'm going to keep it that way this week, if enough people want to do it different next week that's fine with me.

Don't forget, bets must be made by PM to me to be officially counted.

Keep the feedback coming on the question posted on the OP, i'll make a decision by early tomorrow morning.

Ok, put it a different way - can't anyone bet on me or my opponent? (my matchup seems to be missing).

Plus I'd like to bet 50 on lord_hamybal and 50 on Narwhals. 100 per week works well for me.
