5th Annual Don's Prediction League

5th ANNUAL DON'S PREDICTION LEAGUE
2010 SEASON

By DonCanabis/TheDon
Analyst/Godfather




Hey Guy's it's that time of year, training camp it's around the corner and the first preseason game it's a month and a half away. So, it's time invite u guys to my 5th Annual Don's Prediction League.


Well, as most of you know for previous years, I do a Predictions Column in the board every week during the season that I post here and on other sites, after a few years of doing it, some members started challenge me that they could do a better job than me, so after a few years of taking all the trash talk I decided to put any member that wanted to challendge me up to the test and created a prediction league.



This is a FREE league I run for FUN, where we all face against each other like fantasy football, It's really easy and entertraining if you like calling games, it also can help you get better in your own analysis if you're a betting man like myself. Or, if you're just a competitive person, and like to prove you're the BIG dog against other Rival Fans, this is the league for you.


I'm not here to promote any betting site, or my own web page or anything like that, this is just for members that bet and already make their own predictiosn and want to get better at it or prove how good they are, I do thsi for fun and competition to put something else to the season.

We have Bloggers fans from Dallas, Washington, Arizona, New Orleans, Houston, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Detroit, Pittsburgh, Miami, San Diego, Baltimore and Denver, we don't have Eagles fans just because I don't want to deal with all their nonsense LOL.

Ok so here is how it works, Each week I send via e-mail to all the league members the Games of the week with the Vegas Lines for those games. and each member selects in three different ways for each game.

Straight up.- who's going to win the game it doesn't matter if it 's NE vs Detroit you only call who you think is going to win. For example most people here would pick NE

Spread.- each week Vegas gives a spread of points to keep matches on an even level example.- NE vs Detroit because NE is so likely to win and possibly big Vegas might give Detroit 13 points in-favor. That means that if you picked NE for you to win not only NE has to win the game but has to beat Detroit for more than 13 points (NE 27- Det 10), so if you don't think NE can win by 13 points it's a better bet to take Det because even if they lose as long as they don't lose by more than 13 you win (NE 27 Det 17) In the last example even if Det lost the game if you picked Det for the Spread you Won.

Over/Under.- Also each week Vegas puts a line of how many points between both team are going to make and you have to pick if they going to score more points between them that what Vegas placed or less. example.- let's take the same game NE vs Det and Vegas place a Ovr/und line of 48 you know NE has an excellent team and it's going to score some points to Det, because of this, if you believe that between them they're easily going to score 48 point in that case you select Ovr so if the score is NE 37 - Det 17 =37+17= 54 you win. but maybe you think yeah NE might score a lot of points but there's no way Det can score against NE. in that case you take the under NE 37 - Det 3 = 37+3= 40 You win.

So, at the end of the week we take all the picks (selections) that each member had right and we add it to his score, and I send that weeks results and the season results each week and by the end of the year the one with the better record wins.


We have had pretty good member's the past 4 years some with a above 60% Straight up record and 58% record against the spread that's better than most Vegas experts.

Anyway it's a lot of fun, specially if you think you're better than most so call experts out there.


Our last Year's winners came from Cowboysboard.com (CowboyzAdam) and steeleraddicts.com (BlackNGold Bleeder)

The winner Not only gets bragging rights for 1 year in all the boards I post my columns but a Prize:

1st place will get any item they want from the NFL Shop or their Team shop for no more than $25+shipment or a donation to their team forum for the same amount in their name.

This year we will also do a Pre Season Mock league so any newcomer or member that feels a little rusty can get some practice without affecting their record.



So, If you would like to Join write in this thread or send me a PM all I need is your email that we're going to use, Screen Name and First name to know who you are.

GL

Re: 5th Annual Don's Prediction League

I don't know why some of u complain that much I picked you guys to win the your division before the season started last year, I picked you to win in the divisional playoffs, the champsionship and Superbowl and you did it all.

I always give u guys an outsider opinion and heck it's not like I was wrong

Exile of this baord did pretty good on the league last year, instead of attacking you guys should play it and show me if you're any good
