How many times will LT Profits have to answer the same couple of questions? Over/under 500. LOL
LT Profits (10 hours ago)
Are we at 500 yet? LOL
Sancte (7 hours ago)
Hi JoeCool there are two leaderboards. One is the weekly leaderboard and the other is called the overall leaderboard was just surprised the latter was not being determined by units given the 90 pick minimum.
LT Profits (5 hours ago)
Sancte, system does not allow multiple grading methods within same contest.
Sancte (16 hours ago)
Can someone please explain to me why the overall leaderboard is done by wins instead of units?
LT Profits (10 hours ago)
Read the rules, it goes Wins/Action Points/Units. Reasoning has been answered several times both in these comments and in forum thread, we do not want replay of last year with guys taking random + odds plays just to break 6-0 ties.
Sancte (7 hours ago)
Hi LT thanks so much for response. I did go thru comments and looked up contest thread. I was asking about the overall leaderboard not the week leaderboard for years end.

LT Profits (1 day ago)
You have until kickoff time of each play you want, you do not need to enter all plays at once. Although it is not advisable to wait until the very last minute.

What is the 2x pick for pick 6 on week 3?
Tanko (2 days ago)
I'm assuming you figured this out since you made a 2X pick on UAB last night. If you don't know what 2X picks are used for... a) they are used in the determineing the 2nd tie-breaker in the standings since those games are 2X units b) as stated in the rules, Pick 6 Bonus: If any 2-unit play covers ATS AND the covering team has a at least one Pick 6 in the game. you WIN A 600-point free play! Free plays are used in the SBR Sportsbook (applies to ATS plays only).
booker777 (5 days ago)
Love this contest but let me ask. Why do 2x winners not count as 2 wins since wins is the leading driver here.
LT Profits (5 days ago)
Reasons for 2x are A)Units is the second tiebreaker and B)must be 2x to win Pick 6 Bonus.

JAKEPEAVY21 (6 days ago)
How on Earth do action points trump units won?
LT Profits (6 days ago)
Already discussed in detail in the forum thread, "most primary" factor is no more forcing + odds plays on games you do not even like just to break ties.
Igor_1965 (6 days ago)
'Forcing plays' is name of the game. It's a tournament. Hopefully this is a one-and-done rule, like challenging PI in NFL last season.
LT Profits (6 days ago)
No, rule is here to stay with small fixed weekly amount of plays, there will always be 6-0 ties at the top, don't want winner decided by who luckboxed bigger + odds play.
konck (6 days ago)
Action pts makes it easier to steal
LT Profits (6 days ago)
konck at least guys now cap games or at least take plays they like instead off blindly taking biggest + odds as a play.
Thunderground (5 days ago)
I know Jakepeavy, it's beyond belief. Action points over units. Holy macaroni. What does it matter if people throw darts at positive odds, LT? Double unit plays are far more indicative of skill than action points.
convick (5 days ago)
Contests became a matter of guys picking only + odds lines. Doesnt sound like capping.
LT Profits (5 days ago)
Thunderground, there was TOO much emphasis on guys HAVING TO have + odds winner in order to cash. And to your point about double units, a lot of guys auto made + odds plays their 2* with no capping involved.
Thunderground (5 days ago)
LT, all due respect, those dart throwers may get lucky and win a weekly round, but never the contest. Anybody can win a hand in poker, but not the tournament. At least base the contest standings on units. Otherwise you're putting the cart before the horse.
Optional (5 days ago)
The contest was never based on Units Thunderground. Win record trumps everything. This is just a tie breaker we are talking about. And the Units tiebreaker did not work well last year. Cap for Action Points and you'll be fine now you know how it works.
Ghenghis Kahn (6 days ago)
Actions points are dumb since it give huge advantage to total bettors. At the end of the day, it's all about how many units you're up or down.
LT Profits (6 days ago)
How is it an advantage for total players, they should have wilder fluctuations.
LT Profits (6 days ago)
Also let's face it, the top winners will always be 6-0, so how is it fair that ties are broken by random + odds plays? At least action points favors legit capping.
Igor_1965 (6 days ago)
Right, just find a way to make UNITS decide OVERALL standings next season please
LT Profits (6 days ago)
Um no, it has already been explained multiple times why Action Points is MUCH better for this type of contest with a small fixed amount of weekly plays. There will always be 6-0 ties at the top, don't want winner decided by who luckboxed bigger + odds play they did not even like.
LT Profits (5 days ago)
Sorry Igor, I misinterpreted your last comment, doing that would require system overhaul, it is currently impossible to have different Grading Method for Rounds and Overall.
Ghenghis Kahn (5 days ago)
You bet real money LT. C'mon man, does it really matter if the team covers by 100 points or 1 point? But the units matter. 2 unit plays are worth more than 1 unit plays.
LT Profits (5 days ago)
Ghenghis Kahn, you are totally missing the point, we are only talking about contests like this with a small fixed amount of plays where there will always be ties at 6-0 at the top. In this case, units may actually ne the WORST tiebreaker because the winner would simply be the guy that took the highest + odds on a random uncapped game, just go back to last year for reference. Of course we would use units if the contest required say 20 plays or something, but with only 6 plays, I think we are doing it right.
Honeybadger44 (6 days ago)
Sorry for the stupid question, but standing are based on wins now? That means 2x plays have no real purpose anymore?
cjwatsonfan32 (6 days ago)
Essentially yes as action point tiebreakers will rarely result in a tie to proceed to move on to the unit tiebreaker. Best bets are essentially just checking the box to get to submit your picks. Too many people bitched about the units last year and getting screwed because of the fluctuations of price changes.The best bet was the most intriguing part of this contest, but of course, SBR users find a way to bitch and moan their way to getting that nullified
Thunderground (6 days ago)
looks like standings are based on action points. lol
cjwatsonfan32 (6 days ago)
W>AP>Units. Kind of bullshit when you have had this contest based on units and you’re losing to guys who lose their top play of the week. Here’s how this could have been fixed and pleased everybody: you go 6-0 for the week, you get btc based on your action points, anything less than 6-0 is ranked units then action points and that should have applied for season leaderboard. Frankly I don’t think they shouldn’t have changed it at all. You’re not going to get the same price all the time at sportsbooks. You miss out by a tenth of a unit? Well do a better job of jumping on it at that price or find one to match.
cjwatsonfan32 (6 days ago)
swordsandtequila (6 days ago)
They changed it because last year it came down to throwing darts at + odds to win anything. They could make the 2x pick relevant (to more than the pick 6) by making it worth 2 games, +2 for a win and -2 for a loss.
LT Profits (6 days ago)
Honeybadger, 2x matters for 2 reasons: A)Units are still second tiebreaker and yes it has broken some Action ties already, and B)2x is necessary for Pick 6 Bonus.
LT Profits (6 days ago)
cjwatson it is physically impossible to have different sorts based on records and no we will not do it manually LOL
LT Profits (6 days ago)
Also cjwatson, you are missing the point of why we made the change, last year guys were forcing +odds plays on games they may have not have really liked just to to break ties.
LT Profits (6 days ago)
Thunderground, just like it clearly states in the rules, this is not a surprise :) Actually based on Wins with Action first tiebreaker then Units second.
Honeybadger44 (6 days ago)
I'd tend to agree with cjwatsonfan32 in this case. Prices are changing all the time and one of the skills to be a succesfull bettor is to know when to jump on it. I understand why you changed it, but I don't know why was the problem if somebody is picking +money odds and hunting that weekly prize. Let them do it and the rest will have easier job to go for the overall prize.
johnnygooble (6 days ago)
Silver leads due to his love of the sunbelt over the dregs of the big 12....He cant keep picking upsets like that.

Lt, can a game be cancelled an hour to game time. Although I haven't choose cfb before
LT Profits (1 week ago)
Do you mean game get PPD or are you talking about cancelling a play? Games can be PPD any time. submitted plays are final, only deletions would be for bad lines.
