ONCE again you guys suck, I check what games are available and then do research on the Det/LAA game that was listed and then go back to pick one of them and the game is no longer available even though the % are 57-43. I then went to the match-up page and in the pink survivor box there's nothing there except for my pending league  contest pick, WTF gives because I don't understand why this is done.

IT'S funny how you have Saturday NBA games available and no Friday NHL games and you keep removing Friday MLB games, there were five and then four and now there are three.......LAME

class of 78, you need to stop spending your time making picks everyday and sign up for some anger management classes.  You definitely have issues

Let me preface the following comment by saying I LOVE SURVIVOR!!!  The odds of winning the mega millions lottery is the equivalent of flipping a coin heads 27 straight times.  (or tails)  So the Survivor odds that require a streak of 25 in a row for $100,000 dwarfs the MMillions jackpot, currently $92 million.  Sure you've got to get to 27, but by the time you get to 25, you're 2 away, hence a 25% chance at getting to 27.  In conclusion, I don't think anyone will ever get to 25, there aren't enough players.  End of the month totals have roughly 13, 000 trying to get the Survivor prize, with only an estimated 5,000 of those being everyday players.

If they charged you money to play, then i could see people complaining.  It is is FREE to play!!!!!!  Why complain when you don't have ONE PENNY at risk and they have $100,000 on the line????  Every game has a winner, it's up to you to pick the right side.  I don't any affiliation with Covers.  I DO want to tell Covers, Thank You for the FREE, FREE, FREE opportunity to win $100,000.  Go to the local gas station and see if they will give you a FREE lottery ticket.

I FINALLY fck'n figured this out, thanks to my high IQ,lol. If you have made your league contest picks prior to making your Streak Survivor pick and the %'s are highly favoring one of those picks then the pink survivor box on the match-up page is blank, but if you haven't,then the pink box will have the picks available for you to make a selection.                                                                       P.S. bhumphrey, I wouldn't expect anything less from a person who lives with steers and person, why don't you move to the rat race of the northeast between NYC and Philadelphia and see if you can hack it, while staying sane. Maybe then, you might understand where I'm coming from, but I'm pretty sure you have the balls to show up or the conviction to survive if you did.

My grandmother used to say, IF you didn't have bad luck, you wouldn't have any luck at all.

Do they offer less plays to the people that have a long streak?  I tried selecting the dodgers last night and when i hit submit, a message that the play was no longer available appeared. In total, i had only 2 MLB games as an option last night.  How can you intelligently select when only 2 games are available as well as make a selection within 7 days?  Obviously they dont wanna payout the$100k and are trying to make it as hard as possible but they should be fair about it.

Same issue today. Theres only 2 games listed, brewers/phillies and mets/miami.  If the -130 cap is applied, theres at least 5 more games i should have available to select. Im not saying a streak of 10 is anything but this seems a little shady. If you advertise a contest, run it fairly.

SHUT up and grow some balls, I just proved my point,  I was going to select under in the Oak/Tex game which was available,so I went to the league contest first and picked the over and when I went back to the survivor pick page the game mysteriously disappeared, I then went to the MLB scores page and clicked matchup for that game, and in the Survivor box it said this game is no longer available.               P.S. NO, the game line did not go above -130.

IT'S a joke that greeniedguy62's (who is currently in 2nd place in the monthly contest) pick is under 9.5 in the Oak/Tex game, yet because I made a league contest pick prior to making a survivor pick, it's not available to me. HOW the f u c k is that fair to anyone who did the same thing that I did ?  I'll tell you, it isn't and that's why I get to complain about it.

Had similar problems with the games available on the main selection page. Found more available when selecting using the matchup link on the scoreboard. Not sure if this'll be a solution but give it a try.  Its pretty f'd up when you are limited in your options and facing the 1 week time limit to keep the streak alive.

 Like I said no one will ever win this, especially if you have the kind of luck I do. Today(6/23) I had Atlanta -1.5 in WNBA (was -1 when I started to research the game) Final score Atlanta 78-77 and the quarterly breakdown was: 1stQ Atl 21-14 / 2ndQ Atl 24-23 / HT Atl 45-37 / 3rdQ Atl 19-14  64-51 (+13: can get outscored by 11 in the 4thQ and cover) 4thQ Conn 26-14..........WTF

i wonder why rizzo won't address these questions that are 50 years old now.  It is more frustrating than seeing two late night mlb games last night pretty close to even money but only one there.  Once bookmaker got involved in this contest things got progressively worse.
