What happened to CarpeDime?
LT Profits (19 months ago)
SBR employees based in Costa Rica home office not eligible for cash prizes. If you do not already know, CarpeDime is Loshak.
oChRoNiCo (19 months ago)
Thanks LT I did not know that.
The_BoBaH (19 months ago)
Thank you, SBR! This was great tournament! Finished 60th, will try to improve next year :) Thank you and Happy New Year!
retard (19 months ago)
Is sbr going to payout with bitcoins considering how much bitcoin fees have increased since this contest started? Or is sbr going to payout with a better crypto with less fees like ETH?
LT Profits (19 months ago)
99.999% sure it will be BTC per the rules.
LT Profits (19 months ago)
Congrats to fried cheese! And as for Week 17, JIMMYTHEBAG ends the season in style going 4-1, +4.90. Only 31 Beat the Bag.
retard (19 months ago)
What payout is this going to be?
LT Profits (19 months ago)
Thread will be up shortly but it is Chili_Powder 407, YOU 403, all the +7.00s 401
JimmytheBag (20 months ago)
What an incredibly tight race to finish! Congratulations to our winner 'Fried Cheese'! He is $7500 richer. Well deserved. Great capping. A big shout out to our 2nd place finisher 'Crazyparlayking'. He almost produced an unbelievable climb to the top over the last 5 weeks. He is now $3000 richer. You guys are both class acts and I couldn't be happier for you. 'Fried Cheese' will go down in history as the 1st winner of the 'Beat the Bag' contest. Next year I'll work on getting you guys bigger prizes and more points! Thank you all for being a part of it.
DR225 (20 months ago)
Thanks Jimmy!!!
fried cheese (20 months ago)
thank you to u and sbr for the great contest.
crazyparlayking (20 months ago)
thank you, BetOnline and SBR for hosting this fun handicapping contest! Look forward to doing more

Nice job winners!
swordsandtequila (20 months ago)
Congrats to all who placed
GoCougs! (20 months ago)
Thanks for a great contest. Look forward to next year.
oChRoNiCo (20 months ago)
Great contest SBR thanks and I look forward to cracking the top 10 next year. I personally really like the setup of this contest much better than BTP contest.
DR225 (20 months ago)
That fumble/td where Mariota ran into Henry in the 3rd quarter took me from a top 5 place to 18th place. feelsbadman.
ArunSh (20 months ago)
Pretty weird to go 38-43-4 in picks yet finish +7 units! And here I was speaking out against the three unit pick before the contest (mostly because I felt whether you "beat" the bag each week would 90% come down to that three unit pick - personally would rather have it more distributed). But based on my result, maybe I should keep my mouth shut! Congrats to all the winners!
PhilJollins (20 months ago)
fried cheese has elected not to pick which means i need to go 4-0 in the late games to take the title. let's do this boys!
crazyparlayking (20 months ago)
not if I go 3-0. I need everything to stay the same and the Saints cover -6, I win!
crazyparlayking (20 months ago)
sorry, cover -5
JimmytheBag (20 months ago)
This is extremely exciting! There is a huge difference between 1st and 3rd. 1 half to go.
PhilJollins (20 months ago)
You're right, I wasn't accounting for your best bet. I'm 0-4 at halftime though so it probably won't matter lol
fried cheese (20 months ago)
crazyparlayking (20 months ago)
congrats. But isn't one of the rules that you have to make a 3-unit bet every week?
fried cheese (20 months ago)
thx. just for weekly prizes I was told.
crazyparlayking (20 months ago)
ohh i gather you inquired about it. It isn't too clear. Congrats on holding the lead, I'll have to settle for being 2nd (the 1st loser)
JimmytheBag (20 months ago)
Incredibly tight race. You guys are both gentlemen and great cappers. Congratulations guys.
JimmytheBag (20 months ago)
This is going down to the wire! Who's going to $GETTHATCASH$?
JimmytheBag (20 months ago)
It's the final week of 'Beat the Bag'! Can Fried Cheese get to that $7500? Who's going to get paid? Browns+7(-113) Cowboys-2.5(-125) Vikings-11.5(-105) Seahawks-9.5(-110) ***Best Bet*** 49ers-3.5(-107)
beefcake (20 months ago)
Great pics sir! Think I edged you out barely
brooks85 (20 months ago)
bummer to the know the difference between two best bets is all that is keeping me out of contention but the 3unit bet does keep the last week interesting. I can still jump into the money and a lot could happen for first place.
JimmytheBag (20 months ago)
$GETTHATCASH$ brooks85!!!!
JimmytheBag (20 months ago)
Fried Cheese has climbed into the lead with 1 week left! It's a tight race at the top. Who's going to get that $7500? My picks and video will be out Friday at 12pm Est.
crazyparlayking (20 months ago)
I'm coming for him! Already hammered some of the early lines before the big moves, one of them is the 3 unit bet (14-2 on the season). GL everybody!
JimmytheBag (20 months ago)
Get him Crazyparlayking!

Was trying to maka late run for 25th, but the Jaguars were the dagger! Ugh... WTF Jags? Geez, downgrading them going into the playoffs.
Grivas_Digeni (20 months ago)
May be a good bounce back spot. Jags by 17 on Sunday. If you are in a must win game, you must not be that good (re: Titans)
crazyparlayking (20 months ago)
Vaulted up to 3rd place with 1 play pending for tonight. I'm coming for you moretti!!
moretti (20 months ago)
LT Profits (20 months ago)
JIMMYTHEBAG had second straight losing week going 2-3, -3.31 in Week 16, so again, everyone that finishes + units for week will collect.
POISON (20 months ago)
LT, I got 50 free play points in the Sports book.was that from this contest? I also got 10 from answering a trivia question. Are those auotomatically added into my previous total? They look set aside below,didn't know if they expire?
The_BoBaH (20 months ago)
DBAG has a loosing streak for life ))) Happy Holidays Everyone!
pokerdevil (20 months ago)
I like moretti's strategy: sit out and win
brooks85 (20 months ago)
definitely the safe play but this last week is going to be a nail biter. 7-9 people could pass him for first place.
leovegas (20 months ago)
strategy only works if you stick to it - moretti did not
brooks85 (20 months ago)
yeah it's a tough call. I know I wouldn't sit back, if I lost first I'd rather it be on my own pick then someone jumping me while I didn't make any picks. It's wide open now.
LT Profits (20 months ago)
JIMMYTHEBAG Picks for Week 16: Vikings -9 (-110) (Saturday) ; Bills +11.5 (-112) ; Chargers -6.5 (-112) ; Cowboys -4.5 (-110) ; 3* Best Lions -5 (-103) Video here:
cincinnatikid513 (20 months ago)
can yall please put the bags picks on the leaderboard like the pricks where you can see how they stand and pending
convick (20 months ago)
LT Profits (20 months ago)
This has been addressed many times, this was set up as a regular pool contest. In order to see Bag plays like in Prick contest, it would have needed to be set up as a "Beat the" contest, and we did not do that because then Bag's plays would have come off the board, which we did not want in an NFL Only contest.
steven12 (20 months ago)
Why does Jimmy always wait the last minute to post his picks ?
LT Profits (20 months ago)
He usually releases pick video on Thursdays, not sure if that is case last 2 weeks with no Thursday games. I will follow up.
konck (20 months ago)
jimbob365 (20 months ago)
Does anybody know why I have been disqualified?
brooks85 (20 months ago)
did you turn pro before the deadline? Also you literally have no posts on the forum.
LT Profits (20 months ago)
It looks like you never joined. Look at your Betpoints history.
JimmytheBag (20 months ago)
Beat the Bag wrap up show starts in 5 mins. Cap the games with us!
steven12 (20 months ago)
What a hard week 16, NFL is really confused,let me take picks from soccer ))
steven12 (20 months ago)
I got some profit from NFL games from september, I also have to finish this contest top #25 or I will lose some money to my cousin.
funnyman (20 months ago)
have the payouts been made?
LT Profits (20 months ago)
Yes, on Tuesday as usual
Honeybadger44 (20 months ago)
btw, what's up with some of the lines on the contest page. Seattle is +5 across the board, in contest it's 2.5. Detroit -3 instead of -5.
oChRoNiCo (20 months ago)
or Minnesota -8.5 / Green Bay +1.5
LT Profits (20 months ago)
JIMMYTHEBAG goes 1-2-2, -1.15 in Week 15, all everyone needs to do is have winning week to collect. Which is something I did not do. lol
pokerdevil (20 months ago)
Who else is eyeing those bottom payouts? 33rd place here, if I sneak into 25th it'll be a goddamn miracle :)
