Any of the playoff contests are too short to reflect any skill and you have two options...bet on everything and hope to get hot or don't bother with it.  If you're only good at picking sides then just wait for the regular season contest where over 6 months the cream will rise to the top.  And who cares about wining percentage?  All that matters is the bottom line (money).  Stop bitching and play what your good at.  If the free website isn't good enough for you go somewhere else.

 

You sound like a DAMN fool with a comment like that. Because even the most novice player in the world will tell you that you need to be at least 55% in picking winners to be profitable. And don't say you play all dogs, because........ you don't. I would think that the higher your winning percentage is the more money you can make....which is what you say the bottom line is anyways. I guess you may ride BIG chalk all the time and it could yield a good winning percentage, but you may be down overall because of the times that they lose costing you 200 or 300 units. Typical Loser statement, saying winning percentage doesnt matter

the players here are better than the experts! Top people are like 80+percent thats better than those guys that sell picks. And, you can get insight on their winning rythm. Why pay a guy who wouldnt make top 50 here.

HERS A CHALLENGE FOR THEM! They should prove their metal by competeing in league champs. They wont because they are self touting phony rip offs. And they all are SELF PROCLAIMED experts.

HEY ZIPPO! Your name may have a reflecting impact on your cash totals. A guy name his self ZIPPO with a negative mindset to match does not just dont cut it in a competitive win oriented environment.

Cheer up ! Think positive ! And find a name that can light a fire in you.

overall contest winners should be determined by those players who pick everything, not the matchups that they like..

You already have the weekly contest for that, where the people on top for the most part are those who get lucky enough picking the field. Forcing people to pick everything is a horrible idea. First of all, it's not realistic. Do you bet the field with real money? Obviously not. Second of all what are you going to do when and if someone forgets to pick something? Disqualify them? All you'll have left is a bunch of people who pick everything and lose thousands of units in the process. That leaderboard in your scenario would just be a joke.

Contests should be for 2, 3 , or 4 picks for any given sport.  Normal bettors don't play every game on the board and their over/unders.  Doing this would show who the best handicappers for any given sport are.  The cream would rise to the top.

The contest is what it is.... If you don't like it move on then snickers bar.

I like the challenge myself. Not that I'm very good but I enjoy trying.

The only thing you should be crying about is the REAL money you lose, not fake contest money.

Also, just play what you want and take pride in your own efforts, not how you fit into the masses.
