Disregard the points displayed on Leaderboard, this will get paid out properly.
ArunSh (6 months ago)
Good to know, was wondering. Even if it would have worked in my favor, I didn't see anything in rules that you have to have + units to win prizes, would have seemed rather unfair to me to enforce that (even if it would have been better for me!).
yisman (6 months ago)
If units had anything to do with it, AUSTIN would be the winner. Pretty impressive total there. He might have gotten second had he finished his picks.
ArunSh (6 months ago)
Well most contests do have the rule that you must have + units to be prize eligible, no? (like Beat the Prick weekly). That being said, in most of those contests units are the deciding factor so it's a moot point since you obviously won't win anything without positive units anyway. But yeah whether that should be a rule in this type of contest or not, it definitely doesn't say it in the rules so would be unfair to enforce it imo.
LT Profits (6 months ago)
Units do not matter in Action Points contests except as a tiebreaker, so negative units do not matter. Problem is system automatically ignores negative units when posting winnings, it is just an annoyance.
yisman (6 months ago)
"Well most contests do have the rule that you must have + units to be prize eligible, no? " No. BTP is a unique rule. Standard contests pay out the top places. If everyone finishes in the negative, by your logic no one would get paid.
yisman (6 months ago)
plus BTP doesn't actually have that rule. That's just a gimmick for the weekly prize. Theoretically, if every single contestant in BTP who made the minimum picks finished in the negative, the top finishers would still win.

I was going to win too
Krashman (6 months ago)
I was hoping I was safe, LT closes the gap with one bet! lol
Krashman (6 months ago)
NYM 24-4!
Krashman (6 months ago)
And Colorado wins and I move into 4th, safe from LT bumping me out of the money.

yisman (6 months ago)

yisman (6 months ago)
AUSTIN has a nice lead in units now. 2dabank falling behind!
Derekbolden (6 months ago)

yisman (6 months ago)

Derekbolden (6 months ago)

Jeez, I went 2-1 yesterday and lost bunch of ground w punk ass dodgers getting creamed! lol
2daBank (7 months ago)
Consolation prize maybe? Lol
yisman (7 months ago)
Will refund your buyin if you pull it off
yisman (7 months ago)
Oh and if you're ever in north jersey I have some sbr gear for you
2daBank (7 months ago)
Well now I’m number one in units won and have no freakin shot to touch top 5. This action point deal just ain’t for me, the way I bet rl’s simply not conducive to collect a lot of big wins. Lol
yisman (7 months ago)
cooled off in a hurry. 2-7 in my last 9. Before that I was hitting over 80%. I guess not so sustainable, huh?
yisman (7 months ago)
it was 85.2% through the results of 7/26.
2daBank (7 months ago)
You still in 1st tho!!
yisman (7 months ago)
2daBank (7 months ago)
Damn I’d be right at top of leaderboard in normal units. Lol.
john hardesty (7 months ago)
Man, we have the best players in these contest, you better bring ya A Game, or stay home at eat some peanuts...tough outfit, but momma never said it would be easy! Good Luck gentlemen!
2daBank (7 months ago)
No doubt, I’d be top 5 in units won. Now that I understand we need action points to win I’ve changed my strategy a great deal!! Hopefully still have enough time to make a push!! lol
LT Profits (7 months ago)
Yes, whole point was to run something unique as auxillary contest to ensure 2 MLB contests going on until football.
2daBank (7 months ago)
Yea it cool and all but kinda blows it just happens to be when my picks doing really well and I’m right around top in units won but have no freaking chance w action points!! Lol
LT Profits (7 months ago)
So at least you are winning big in real life! :D
2daBank (7 months ago)
This is certainly different, I like it. Just wish I would have realized scoring format sooner as my typical strategy to win on rls is identifying low scoring affairs where I win many by the half run! Not gonna cut it to win w action points!! Lol
Mike Huntertz (7 months ago)
Action points? How many can you get if your side wins 10-0?
LT Profits (7 months ago)
Action points is how much you beat (or lost to) spread by. So if you bet -1.5, 10-0 is +8.5 action points, if you bet +1.5, 10-0 is +11.5 action points.
