Rules should be tweaked a little so that there are a minimum of 20? plays and a max of 25 within 7-10 days or just a total # of plays allotted to each contestant.. dont know you guys decide those small details
Good point but that's why we have a battle. People shouldn't miss a day when they battle. I didn't go with Units because I'm not trying to make it complicated. 3 picks per day for 7 days. Any sport worldwide it doesn't matter. That way it's even and if a person misses a day then that day is sacrificed. I have seen guys sandbag picks and all kinds of tricks. This is the truest test of capping skills. Winner take all.

To all Battle Combatants: Remember the object is the most wins in a 7 day period. Up to 3 picks per day. Highest number of winning picks wins the Battle. We're not doing Units, Percentages, just plain old picks. Any sport worldwide. The only requirement is if you pick Turkish Soccer for example we can verify the score and the line. If a tie exist after 7 days then you will have an OT period consisting of 1 day. You keep playing until the tie is broken. OT will consist of 3 picks as well.

For the sake of clarification if you pick a game that has a spread and you pick ML then that is the only way you will win that game. If you pick a game that has a point spread you must indicate the spread. So for example if you're picking Basketball don't just say Miami. You must indicate the point spread at the time you post your pick. That point spread will then be applied to your pick. We're not doing odds here so you don't get extra credit if you pick San Diego +200. We're keeping this simple. It's a true test of your capping skills. Win or lose no sandbagging, 5star special of the month crap. We're doing this old school style. Refer to post #11 for other rules. Bottom line have fun and win your Battles1

No ML's because then you can just take ml of favorites and not have to cover...no point in taking ml of a dawg..if ml hit the spread hits..

Booyah,

My strongest MLB system that I wanted to test out sometimes doesn't spit out another games (like today) but I'll try to cap some games to get the 3 game quota a day to make things fair. Good luck to you and maybe at the end the winner could pass along their system.

Houston Astros +1.5 (-180)
LA Dodgers ML (-101)
OKC Thunder -4  (-110)

Thanks Knickfan that is a great point and something I missed. I totally agree with you on that.

WE HAVE A CORRECTION TO THE RULES!
Thanks to Knickfan for pointing this out. There will be no ML on Basketball. Strictly points on Basketball and Football. Baseball is ok because there are 162 games and upsets happen on a regular basis.

For the sake of clarification LVRNCAPPER will receive +4 points for his San Antonio pick! The odds posted on Covers as of this posting. Also LVRNCAPPER. You only have 2 picks posted. Please post another pick.

...Whatever picks that you made must base on money to decide that you win or lose. It is just like when you bet with real money. You count on how much you win or lose that matter not on your record win lose cause it will involved different sports and different juice. Just my 2 cents.

Thanks for your input but I have made this simple for a reason. Money is relative. We're talking wins and loses here. That's what matters when you're capping. This forum will not be complicated. It's simple win or lose.

I appreciate your enthusiasm my friend. Be patient. We will find someone for you to battle. I prefer to keep it 1 on 1. But if you have someone in particular that you would like to battle. Invite them to this thread, set the terms and you can battle. BTW I appreciate you looking out for me with the rules. That was a good oversight that you caught.
