I'm thinking something like this;

$30 buy in each (includes 2 streak attempts)
Additional attempts cost $5

NFL and College Football sides and totals per 5Dimes.

1 live pick at a time. Which must be graded before the next pick can be posted.

First person to reach a 7 streak takes the pot.



Thoughts?

I was thinking just one pool and you can choose to pick from either? So we have potential games to pick almost every day.

Or we could make it one pick per day... but it might take all season for someone to get to 7. :D


Is 7 the right target number?

I think 7 is a good number. Maybe put a cap on the number of picks per day. So we dont have people making 7 picks every Saturday and Sunday. Just a thought, but maybe like a maximum of 2-3 picks per day?

Don't see a reason to cap picks in a day for a streak contest. 7 in a row is 7 in a row no matter the time span.

Yeah bit that's way too hectic and somebody would have to spend the whole damn day grading all our picks. There would need to be some cap I would think.

As we can only have 1 live pick at a time, people can just grade the previous bet themselves as they post the new one.

Also because of that same rule it will be impossible to make more than 2 or 3 picks most days.

Optional I'm in.  We will talk ill either wire it again or might send it via 5dines if they let me send that little. Use to be $50 min account to account transfers but I'll check whenever we so it

Is just as soon have it run here than espn u less sone1 doesn't want to run it.  It just 1 pick at a time anyways. But that's up to opti I really don't cAre whatever he wants to do

Only thing with espn is that you can't pick the games you want.

That would be an easier option I guess.

But it's not just football and it doesnt have every game total/side available to pick from.

Plus we can already play against people for points in SFTC at SBR if we want. Yisman runs it.
