USC FOOTBALL IS BACK
Here at Trojan Daily Blog we have decided to add some excitement to the season by having a season long Football Contest that is free to enter and cash prizes to the top three finishers. At the bottom of the page is a preliminary list of games for the first week. Please read the following rules and if you are interested you can leave a message in the comment section or you can you can email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have Trojan friends that you think might be interested, tell them to email me and I will set them up with a free account.
If you would like to get a USC Media Guide, let me know and I will email you a digital copy.
There are no entry fees.
Every participant will receive 20,000 betting units.
You must bet a minimum of 1 game and 1,000 units each week.
There will be a limited number of games to choose from each week.
The contest ends with Pac-12 Conference Championship Game.
I will post the point spread for each week’s games on Monday.
All wagers must be received by Friday at noon PT.
Wagers must be posted on the TDB (preferred) or they can be emailed to: email@example.com.
I will review each wager to make sure that it was correctly placed and I will then send you a confirmation that your wager(s) have been accepted.
If you do not receive an acknowledgement from me, then your wagers do not count. If you have not heard from me, please email me.
If a game is cancelled or moved to another date, then that game will not be counted as a bet (no action).
Winning wagers will be paid as ‘even money’, for example; if you bet 1,000 units, you will win 1,000 units.
The winner will be determined by who has the most betting units in their account at the end of the contest.
I will keep track of everyone’s account and this accounting will be posted on TDB on Monday. Please review my figures. If you think that a mistake has been made you must contact me by 9pm Monday – otherwise these numbers will be considered official.
First Prize is: $150.00
Second Prize is: $75.00
Third Prize is: $25.00
If two people end up in first place, then the first and second prize will be added together and that amount will be split between the two winners.
I will handle all disputes and my decision will be final.
Please remember, this is supposed to be about fun and Trojan camaraderie.
These are the games that we are looking at for Week 1. These point spreads are preliminary numbers. The final point spreads will be posted on Monday, August 30th.
