An insane lineup is all fun and good for regular season, but pitching wins championships. Look at the Giants, they win every other year with an average lineup, but stellar pitching.  I'm obviously a Cubs fan, not a Giants fan so I'm not pumping up my fav team, but if you have pitching that "keeps you in games", that won't win a championship.

And this time a little more heads up would be nice Covers, unlike on the last race!

Totally agree, I checked the ultimate race site about every 3-4 days when it wasn't going and kept seeing the Hawaii one up. Then I check it and we are already 3 days in, so I didn't want to waste my time when I am already 12 picks behind. I am not good enough at this to start 12 picks behind. But I enjoyed the Hawaii one when I started from the beginning and didn't miss a day of picks that was fun. Pretty ticked there was hardly any notice.

How exactly is this a push? The final score was TOR 13 MIN 3 and I made the pick late last night.

Not sure what's going on here but I should be a streak of 5, do I need to contact somebody or is this something that gets fixed on it's own or over night usually?

Thank you! I am currently 9 back from the leaders so not likely to get to that point but I was just curious how it works.

 

I appreciate your help.

For example, lets say there are three people at the end of the day at 199, is it the first person "time wise" the next day that gets to 200 that wins? Thus benefitting you to take all early games that day no matter what the matchup is hoping you get there first.

Or is it determined another way if more than one entry get to 200 on the same day?

They'll even out, I took Kansas @ Texas Tech under 155 and they put the scrubs in with like 3 minutes to go so I figured I was safe with them needing about 15 points in the final 3 minutes. Well with 30 seconds to go they were at 154 and then, luckily for me, held the ball for the last 30.

So like I said sometimes you win the close ones sometimes you get screwed, but you tend to only remember the losses.

Thanks, guess this week is out of the question even though it looks like I am on my way to a 4-0-0 start.

Guess I'll make a deposit next week, I would kick myself if I knowingly didn't do the deposit and then won the weekly one time.

Thanks again and good promotion by covers and betEd, got me to make a deposit.

Ya I lost two days ago on UCLA -2 @ Arizona St. They were up 4 in OT with 3 seconds left and ASU hit a meaningless, contested 3 off an inbounds for me to lose my pick by one.

You win some like that and you lose some like that, funny thing is it probably somewhat evens out, you just always remember the ones you lose like that over the ones you win like that.

I just checked the rules.....Weekly - $500 Cash account credit at betED.com

Weekly prizes are awarded as cash credits to your existing betED.com account with a 10x sportsbook rollover. You must have deposited and wagered a minimum of $20 in real money prior to your winning week. Weeks run Monday to Sunday so to clarify, you must have deposited and wagered a minimum of $20 in real money before Sunday night at 11:59 PM ET with the Sunday being that which is prior to your winning week. If you do not make the deposit prior to winning you will be eligible for a 100% Deposit Bonus (up to $100) with 5x rollover from betED.com. Prize winning emails *must* be forwarded to webmaster@betED.com for any prize redemption and *not* via the regular betED Customer Service Dept.

If I'm reading this correctly you don't HAVE to deposit and wager a minimum of $20 in order to win the $500 betEd money that's just to get the maximum rollover bonus? Is that correct? Or is it that if you don't deposit and wager at least $20 then you get nothing? Just wondering cause it seems a little confusing.

If you win the betEd prize, they tell you to sign up at betEd.com to receive your prize. I didn't have an account and won $25 from the streak survivor game on here and still got it.

Not that I'm going to win but just curious, does the winner get a trip to Hawaii or $5,000 cash? On the frontpage it says a trip to Hawaii but under rules it says first person to 200 wins gets $5,000 cash.

Thanks for the help.

Okay I shouldn't have even posted cause I already got my money. People must be doing something other than replying to the email that you get the day after you get a streak of 7 cause it was actually really simple and I already got my $25.

As others have said thanks covers and betED.com.
