    Not all games are available. It seems like the bigger the game the more likely it's listed. For example games between #97 NC State and #320 Bryant doesn't get listed. But #1 Duke vs #2 MSU does.

    I saw thay some of y'all had made close to 20 bets already though. I've only seen around 6 acc games on there as well as the 1 today.

    Sometimes you need to check later in the day to get all the games.

    Curtis has made 21 wagers so far... every one of them on an ACC game.
    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    Yeah, I spoke too soon. "Bone Saw" Evans has decided to tax you and you better obey. He's the boss.

    This was made clear at the start of the contest. Your successful wager on the Kentucky-Kansas game last night was illegal, as was 3 other games you bet upon that were not involving ACC teams. Now, the other 3 wagers were all losses, so I am going to be nice and not force you to wipe those games out. But, you need to pick a game and wager 100 units on it (the same amount as your Kansas wager) and then lose that bet. Please post in this forum which game (it can be any game, not bounded by ACC rules) you are planning to lose. If you are lucky, you will lose the first time you try. But, if you try to lose and accidentally win, you will be required to pick another game to lose and this time you must wager 200 units... and so on until you have successfully wiped out the loss. Trust me, this can take time and can be quite costly to your bank account. Just be thankful you only wagered 100 units!

    Ok. The Clearasil bet is Navy vs. Penn. Navy is +5 at Penn. I took Navy and bet 100 in the hopes of losing and getting square with the sharks.

    No line out for the UNC Bucknell game yet. Still no word on Berry's availability, Cam Johnson now out, Brandon Robinson out. So many unknowns in this one Vegas my not even put up a line.

    The Dean Dome will be packed with literally dozens of rowdy students and fans, ready to sit on their hands and moan and groan in this one. It'll be so quiet, you'll be able to hear the HVAC kick on, even from home on tv.

    Furman may be a veteran squad, but the talent disparity will be stark, as will the size gap. Either way, I'm eager to see how the fellas respond in the wake of a letdown game on Friday, preceding a stretch of more high-profile, competitive PK80 games upcoming.
    A good take, English, and one I agree with. You should back it up with a bet in our contest. (Unless your work firewall doesn't allow access to Covers, in which case you should bet some fake money when you get home. [Unless you can do it on your phone]).

    Armchair QB is a good position to play.

    I am not playing this year because last year I learned that losing fake money is more fun than losing real money, I am a crap picker.

    Thanks to Duke both covering (23 point line) and hitting the over (153.5 and the total was 155) for a total of 800 smackers, I am back in positive territory in a pretty big way (+780). Quite exciting for me

    Doh!!! I ran the numbers too late to get in on the party celebrating how bad Pitt is. A 10 pt line looked mighty attractive on a neutral floor. Hindsight I guess.

    For those that care, Vegas doesn't seem to have caught up to how truly bad Pitt appears to be this season. Take those lines while they give them.

    I'm chuckling about my place in the standings. First place for this week (plus $2k), and still last place overall by a wide margin.

    You gotta take your victories where you can get em. The winner of each weekly contest gets the exact same prize as the overall winner!

    By the way, congrats to Packman97 (+2200) for winning week one and to Troublemaker (+2240) for winning week #2. Here are the week #3 standings thus far:
    1. Rasputin + 2000 (4-0)
    2. JasonEvans + 1900 (6-0)
    3. EnglishDBR +1800 (5-0)
    4. krzyzewskiville +1100 (3-0)
    5. Gooch4Duke +1000 (2-0)

    The question at this point is do I even bother to bet again or do I sit on my 1900 and perfect record in the hope I can hang on as others inevitably fall back...

    By the way, if folks did not notice, Left Hook made a very good bet here as Penn crushed Navy. Left Hook was able to clear his bad bet in just one game... impressive.

    I'm taking whoever plays Pitt. Every game. Give the points for 100 units.
