Decided to play it conservative the final weekend since I was in the top 20. Played the 49ers and really wanted to play UCF but couldn't pull the trigger. Could've gained $500 if I played them 1x or $1,200 if I played them 2x. But I'm still happy with $900. Congrats to all who cashed and a huge thanks to SBR for a great contest!
j2k99 (2 months ago)
Ok so now what? I won $130 in bitcoins and how does it get paid? I don’t see anything yet in my wallet. I’m such a noob on bitcoins. I just want the cash.
sandos139 (2 months ago)
Happy New Year Everyone Thank You SBR for another great year of BTP, Congrats to the Top 50
shari91 (2 months ago)
Thanks beefy!! For all I know I’ll end up 25th as I haven’t really looked too closely at the standings. I’m just surprised so many in the top 10 are still making licks as they aren’t doing well and that’s allowing others to jump up. People are costing themselves thousands to try to move up one spot. Silly greedy billies. Happy New Year everyone and stay safe xo
shari91 (2 months ago)
Picks not licks haha
Hugh Madbrough (2 months ago)
I didn't even know you could park it after 70 picks. I thought as long as the Prick picked, you had to pick as well. Lost everything with 9 seconds remaining. I feel sick. If I new I could park it I would of done it 2 weeks ago. First time actually playing the contest.
Hugh Madbrough (2 months ago)
Even asked if I can cancel, but I guess all plays are final. But what about the whole Michigan State/Washington State game where they just voided.
ArunSh (2 months ago)
I feel you man, I will miss out myself based on that sick last second score by TB also (I had U50.5 as well). Guess it cost you way more, but either way very sick for us - sorry sir!
Hugh Madbrough (2 months ago)
Yeah, bro. I knew they were going to do something sneaky. I mean all they needed was a feel goal but what's the point of winning when you are 4-11 but I guess that's that. I learned my lesson. I guess there's always next year.
ArunSh (2 months ago)
Yeah just couldn't believe it. I was actually rooting for them to make first down back when they were on 5 yard line - didn't want to risk New Orleans getting it there and maybe running it in since they might not be able to quite run the clock out. And then that happens. Just can't believe the play call though, every time I see that situation, they throw it short to the sidelines to try to pick up 5 or so yards and make it easier FG - never throw it deep arghhhhhhh. Ohh well as you said it happens, have had plenty of lucky breaks too I'm sure just kind of sick for whole contest to be ruined by that at the end...
Hugh Madbrough (2 months ago)
I was thinking the same thing. Lol. I thought with !:Something left. Saints wouldn't actually kneel on the red zone and try to score. The parking is bull ish but next year...I'll get what I deserve.
beefcake (2 months ago)
Shari take that 3500 and go lay it all on young Zverev to win the Aussie. Or go take you boy Nicki K out to Anger Management
playr101 (2 months ago)
Yep...that's me...needed 1 unit yo take 3rd from u Shari......4 straight losses later...I'm at 16th...bah Congrats to all the winners
ArunSh (2 months ago)
53rd with two picks left. Cmon last two games put me in the $ lol! Kind of silly getting so revved up about winning $50 at most, but have never won a prize in the overall contest so would be a nice feeling after finishing near the bottom several recent years!
JAKEPEAVY21 (2 months ago)
ArunSh (2 months ago)
God that's so sick, I lose the last bet cause Tampa Bay scored TD instead of FG to win game, 15 seconds left from 40 yard line - so sick!! I had U50.5, so FG would have been just fine. Can't believe I miss cashing (probably) cause of beat like that....
ArunSh (2 months ago)
Lol, how can you throw long pass there, should throw short to the side to give more make-able FG - I was counting my win already, figured virtually 0 chance that they would score TD from that situation. Sick way to end it but can't really complain that much, after all my best bet this week was Bears/Vikings under, and Bears being unable to score with 1st & Goal from the 2 yard line near end of the game is what saved that bet. But still could almost taste it until the very last insane play which sacked me! First season having a chance and I lose out on that haha!
yisman (2 months ago)
65th for me. No good.
playersonly69 (2 months ago)
You should have given me those points that you owe me..... karma cost you this time
milwaukee mike (2 months ago)
send me a pm with an amount that would make you happy and i'll send... even though nobody owes you anything
yisman (2 months ago)
No one owes you anything. I saw you begging for points on the forum again, though.
beefcake (2 months ago)
Great job shari! Do you and LT get any bitcoin from being SBR employees?
horja1 (2 months ago)
Indeed, great job. I think they both are working outside SBR HQ so they should be eligible
mintpicks79 (2 months ago)
Thank you Sbr ! Made my last pick grinded all contest to hopefully get some prize money.
SBR Forum (2 months ago)
Best of luck sir.
LT Profits (2 months ago)
All ATS and Money Line Plays on Michigan State/Washington State will get voided as spreads/MLs were flip-flopped right from the start. Hard to believe nobody reported it. :(
LT Profits (2 months ago)
Keep in mind I said VOIDED and not Pushed, so guys get a play back. Also, I said Money Lines because this message goes for all SBR Contests.
Thrill221 (2 months ago)
It seems once you lock in a bet you should get that line regardless if you all made a mistake. I just thought it was just a line move by the site. This doesn’t seem like the right outcome to void since we all locked in what was on the board.
Dan Kelly (2 months ago)
I always say something if I notice that a line is off, but I thought you guys were slow on moving the line, because that line was moving so much and so fast right around pick em. I would have been on Mich St at -1.5 but the way I have been going lately it figures that something like this would happen. I was in first place for a two seconds a month ago, and I completely lost my mojo since. Could be worse, could be no SBR... Thanks SBR for being the best website.
SBR Forum (2 months ago)
We've sent a PM to those of you who selected this game in Beat The Prick informing you that the pick was disabled and that you have to resubmit a pick(s)[many bet both sides]. Please check your PM inbox at
Thrill221 (2 months ago)
When are these coming. I don’t have a message
retard (2 months ago)
What about people who picked The early spread when it was even/pickem and not flipped?
retard (2 months ago)
What about the people who got the early legit lines? I picked Michigan state last week when the line was legit in the other college football contest and it still was voided.
Thrill221 (2 months ago)
If we made mistakes selecting our picks it wouldn’t be reversed. Respectfully this seems like the wrong call. I get it if caught prior to the game.
Toples (2 months ago)
I also agree its not a good idea to void it when people who have won would have won even if line was -24 on MSU. Wrong spread didnt affect the outcome. That line was almost pickem so nobody reported. But i just made a new play. And im gonna win it, cuz if i lose it, the difference will be like $100 (or even $300 dollars in the end if i winn all my othe bets.)
Mike Huntertz (2 months ago)
Garbage, you run a great show but this is the wrong call!
Crusherrr (2 months ago)
You have the wrong score on Wash St/Mich St game. Scores are flipped. Please correct this.
convick (2 months ago)
I picked Michigan St., how did I end up with a loss?
Toples (2 months ago)
mine too, i just went to see where im now and im 5 places down instead of being few up the ladder
retard (2 months ago)
Michigan state was also counted a loss in other sbr college football contests.
convick (2 months ago)
Fantastic. Picked Was +3 with the cancelled pick that was nicely given back. Thanks again!
sandos139 (2 months ago)
Congrats Paratrooper sick record this year well deserved
paratrooper829 (2 months ago)

beefcake (2 months ago)
Yeah man ,Well done!!
retard (2 months ago)
Is sbr going to pay the huge bitcoin fees or is sbr going to send the winner a crypto currency with lower fees such as eth of litecoins
The Prick (2 months ago) Watch my victory parade
paratrooper829 (3 months ago)
Thanks for an awesome contest guys! Great group of handicappers I loved the good vibes and the shit talking. Thank you SBR for a kick ass contest. See you guys next year. Unless SBR starts a contest like this for MLB cough, hint, suggestion.
JAKEPEAVY21 (2 months ago)
way to freeroll the existing PROS at SBR and only ponying up at the last second...nevertheless, impressive record.
brooks85 (2 months ago)
lol the shit talking you took no part in...
ArunSh (3 months ago)
Yes congrats paratrooper - amazing run! Hoping to have a strong week myself in final week and to sneak into the Top 50. Granted won't win much, but the victory of winning something after so many years of blanking in this contest (at least for the overall prizes) will be something! :)
paratrooper829 (3 months ago)
Thank you see you next year
Slipknot26 (3 months ago)
Excellent job Para , Sportfan and others ..Do not cash in your Bitcoin like I did last year , I lost out on huge profits like a fool . Also thank you SBR for another free contest , top notch site . Prick , nice year too
ArunSh (3 months ago)
Yes SBR Beat the Prick is such a fantastic contest, hope it continues for many years, really helps keep the interest during football season. My only regret is that there is not something similar for NBA/MLB as it's much less exciting around here when it's non-football season!
paratrooper829 (3 months ago)
Thanks Slip what was your situation with Bitcoin last year?
Slipknot26 (3 months ago)
I came in Top 20 , but you receive Bitcoin as the payment . At this time , I would simply let it set . I actually put in a book but lost about 13k with the run it has went on by simply not holding on to it . Wished I would've just held on to it . But up to each person's situation . Just a very volitil market , but wish you the best
paratrooper829 (2 months ago)
Ok cool thanks for the information
ArunSh (2 months ago)
Easy to say after the fact slipknot. Many people think bitcoin is headed for big crash soon (and some thought that last year too though not as many I think). I mean after a bet of your loses, easy to say also, "damn I should have bet other side". Little point being resultist like that - para you should do what you want with the bitcoin. If you want to gamble on it increasing in value, by all means do so. If you prefer to be safe about it then cash it out immediately - entirely depends on what your priority is.
retard (2 months ago)
A 10000 bitcoin payout would probably be 3000$ in fees
Slipknot26 (2 months ago)
That's what the hell I literally said . Each person is different . If I wouldn't have touched it , would've profited 13K more . Gambling is the same as stocks , futures , you're betting on a probability that you will win a bet , increase your shareholder value . I'm sure he'll do what he feels best . But it's money won , and free , so I'm saying I never got it , should've just held on to it , made the profit on something I won that was actually free . Hence I had no chance of losing anything , it was free from SBR .
Tanko (3 months ago)
Congratulations Paratrooper on 1st place in the contest. I have to assume you won't make any more picks, since you have > 70 plays that is the only way you could possibly drop out of first. Sportfan - also congrats. You two blwo weveryone away.
paratrooper829 (3 months ago)
Thank you I had a blast and you're right I won't be making anymore pick. I'll be making personal plays but no more for the contest. We should ask sbr to do something like this for mlb and nba/ncaab next year. It's a good group of people here and I'll be writing post in the forum. See you guys next year
