I've been at this almost 10 years? Can I get a prize for that?

Impressive stats!  That 15 in a row streak must've been epic.  At least you've gotten a hat & hoodie on the journey.  I'm approaching 2,000 picks and gotten JACK SQUAT.  Longest streak is 7, which has to be on the low end of probability for that many selections.  I swear I've been at 6 a dozen times and can't break through.

Yea.  I've had the streak of 15 and I've had a few other streaks of 10+, but nothing close to the money of many other people on here.  Just kind of disappointed after 10 years that I havent gotten to the cash yet...HA

I have a record 508-444-15; Just lost my 3d at 10---seems like everyone I talk with has a hurdle they are unable to jump. Some pretty good 'cappers have never surpassed 8 for example, but MIZUNO22 you are defying probability, as you point out. Anyway GL with the Heat ce soir

Ironic that I'd go on a run after posting on this thread.  Reached an all time high of 8 today, so tomorrow, I go after the coveted hat.  If I get stonewalled, can I buy one of yours, Coin Toss??

Don't be dissapointed. Firstly we are here for fun and then if the things work, very good.

If not, we win something, new friends and experience. It's win-win.

winning the hat is epic if you are bad at it.  i won it once a year ago and now the hat is old and no way i am winning another hat, it seems impossible.

If I'm not mistaken, random probability suggests that you should have streaks of at least 13 in a row win or loss after 1000 picks

I know how you feel.  I cant get past 8 wins.  I have seen people blow their $25,000 games.  It is hard to go on a streak to get that kind of money.

Just had my 7 game streak snapped last night & I am p-off! My new strategy is to take the same pick as the leader as if I can't win, I am going to dam well make sure nobody else does either. I know this is petty but I don't give a ##**

Hoe that strategy pays off....something tells me its flawed though.  I wish there was an nfl game everyday.  If so my numbers would be so much better!!

the current leaderboard(as of 1/17/13) consists mainly of those copying picks off each other.

Ive clicked on their previous picks and they're pretty much exact
