I use to post a lot on a college basketball board for which the general board died, but the A-10 board thrived. They had a daily pick'em contest, where everybody made a daily pick against spread or over-under, and they had a contest for the year and the format ended with the NCAA tournament. |You can pick any D1 games you want. Was going to try the same thing here and see if it worked


Rules

1. You can make up to 3 picks each day

2. You do not need to make a pick each day, but to qualify for the finals you need to have at least 30 picks.

3. On day 1, you post your pick(s) and source. Please use that source for the rest of the year. Honour, or honor, system used, this is after all for fun.

4. On day 2, you quote your last pick, note result, and update your season record. You are responsible for keeping your score.

5. Rules for the NCAA tournament to be further determined. Top 16 will make it (may be changed) But regular season standing will matter. Higher seed will be able to add 2 points to each of their NCAA picks.

I will update the standing once a week.
 
Houston at South Florida (under 138)

I got the under, missed the SU/Miami game, and the Iowa St game. So i am 1-2. I have not done a good job of staying active in this! Hopefully a few more join.

For tomorrow:

SMU (+13) at Louisville
Northwestern (+5.5) vs Illinois
Washington (+3) vs Colorado
 
Nice start. I really like that SMU pick as well.

Thanks, I have fallen to 7-5 on a mistake, but still doing good. Really surprised at the SMU/Lville line, but I'll take it.
 
5-3 YTD

Wash +4 (bovada)

Huskie winner, update YTD 6-3. That place is a black hole for the Buffs.

SMU covered, and Northwestern and Washingotn won outright. 3-0, and now 4-2 on the season.

Fun Fact from this weekend. Top 25 favoured teams. were 4-9 against the spread. Of those 9 dogs, Washington, Northwestern, Oklahoma, and Clemson won outright. Arkansas and Missouri St loss in OT. West Virginia lost by 1 and Auburn lost by 2.

Pick for tomorrow from bet365

Virginia +6 at Duke

Cleveland St -1 (pinn)
Iowa St -1 (pinn)
 
YTD 6-3

Winner Winner chicken dinner. TYD 7-3 /But more important a great comeback by the Orange.
