This game is great, one of the best contests offered on the internet. I like the expanded picks needed to win increased to 200 this year. It makes for a better experience and gives you a better chance if you don't get off to a great start. I wouldn't even mind seeing that upped to 500 wins  for a truly comprehensive marathon like competition.

Hopefully you bring the competition back again (and again----maybe even more often if you could).

But in any event,

Great job, Covers/Wagerline Staff! Thank you!

I agree whole heartedly Blacksheep, but its only realistic to do it the 2 times a year its already done.  theres no real balance in the summer, you would be just picking baseball.  Ultimate challenge is a great handicapping challenge and it proves over time even with discipline it is hard to compete with books.  53% and above your a winner.  the leaders are all at about 56-60%.

It's awesome .. I played in spring 2009  and finished 20th .. was as high as 5..

in it now but got caught with a work project early on and missed about 36-40 picks .. so i'm way behind ..

I agree.It is really hard to pick at a high percentage.I believe the bookies have all the advantage-they KNOW it takes some doing to make any money at this!
Sure,you have your occasional big winner.But,by and large,very few will actually EVER win money!
