I had a 4-0 day one day last week, and the four days since I've had two 0-4's and two 1-3's for a total of 2-14 in the last four days. Ouch!

I was able to get my pick in for Ultimate Race, but every time I go to make picks on the league contest page, there are no picks to be made. What gives? Traffic too heavy or something? Granted, I didn't try until a few minutes before 1 pm, but I'm curious nonetheless.

Congrats Ashflow. Well played. Looks like there isn't going to be enough time for me to finish with a prize, but you're about to be $5K richer. And picking a MAC game for your winner, props to you (MAC school grad here).

I was going to ask the same question. Thanks for answering it and reading my mind. My next question though is, why have a weekly leaderboard then? Just gives people false hope and an ego boost for an out of the ordinary 7-day period. Means nothing in the grand scheme of things, does it?

I think it has more to do with more sports to pick from...the Fall/Winter race you will at any time have 7 sports to pick from (MLB,NFL,NHL,NBA,NCAAF,NCAAB and CFL) while in the Spring race you NBA,MLB,NHL,NCAAB. We dont even have the CFL option this year since they arent having a season.


That's pretty much what I figured. I assume you meant that Arena League isn't having a season instead of the CFL, unless you know something I don't about Canadian football.

Percentages don't matter at all in this game, it's total wins. So really you're tied in the standings with anybody who has 16 wins, regardless of the number of losses and ties they have. At this point in the game, who's ahead of who on the leaderboard when the number of victories is equal is practically irrelevant unless you just like to see your name on the first page.

This race is to 100 but the last race was to 150 wins. Why is that? Is it because college basketball ends sooner and we'd have fewer leagues to choose from?

Pushes don't end your streak, they just don't extend it. You have the same streak as you had before you picked the push. I say whole numbers may even be beneficial for that exact reason: it's no skin off your teeth if you push. Lower risk. Especially with football spreads of 3 or 7. Or if you're on your 7th day of non-activity and don't see a worthwhile game but you have to pick something.

STIMIE, just because someone has the word "wagerline" in his (or her) user name, doesn't mean he (or she) works for wagerline.com. You can pick any name you want, as long as it's not taken or too offensive. You personally could change your name to WagerlineAndIAreHavingABaby and it wouldn't mean you know anybody on the staff. So lighten up, the staff is just trying to make sure people get their rewards.

Some of you people are missing my point. I'm not saying I hate the race in general or that I'm going to protest and get a petition to give me an extra game. It's just an opinion. I'm not crying like a baby. I know I suck and one game won't matter to me and yes I know that the rule applies to everyone, but I don't have to LIKE the rule, even though I have to follow it.

Make that 9-3. Oh well, can't win 'em all. And in my case, can't win any of em

littlevoice, just because a rule is the same for everyone doesn't mean it can't be stupid. Shouldn't you be allowed to go over the speed limit to get a pregnant woman to the hospital ASAP? Speed limit is a stupid rule in that case. Sports related, if a ball is fumbled out of the endzone, it's a touchback no matter how it got there. Stupid rule. See my point?

How is it fair? The team I picked didn't lose or tie, but it might as well count as a loss. I don't see what the harm is in picking a late game instead when the game you picked has been officially cancelled. Thoughts?

dbell, let me have my moment. You're probably 500 spots better than me even without my lost day, so yes I bow down to your superiority. If you think my post was worthless then don't respond to it. Now go get me some soup and the latest line on that Clippers-Kings game. Chop chop.

Why didn't I get that flue shot last winter when I had the chance? I was literally bedridden for about 36 hours, which meant no picks Not that I was tearing it up or anything, but now I'll have to be near perfect just to get #25 and have the leaders all get abducted by aliens and held for observation for a week or two. Oh well, 4th race is a charm?

I know of the vs the spread version, but I was wondering if you had the straight up version like the NFL or NBA postseason versions.

Will ther be a postseason baseball wagerline-wide office pool for cash prizes? I know they did for nba postseason. Just wondering if there will be one for MLB.
