The contest closes to weekly entries on Friday September23, 2022 at 5pm P.T.

This Post will be updated throughout the week.

Please remember, this is supposed to be about fun and Trojan camaraderie.
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 on December 4, 2022.
I will post the point spread for each week’s games on Monday
All wagers must be received by Friday at noon PT. (Exact date will posted weekly)
Wagers must be posted on the TDB (preferred) or they can be emailed to: info@trojandailyblog.com.
I will review each wager to make sure that it was correctly placed. I will then respond to your entries to let you know that they have been accepted.
If you do not see your wager acknowledgement please contact me as soon as possible by posting a comment on the blog prior to the first game you have wagered on.
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.
Anyone can be removed from the contest for exhibiting poor sportsmanship, as determined by me.
By making wagers on the games you acknowledge you agree to these rules.
John Weld

USC -6.5 for 15000

I’ve gotta try to keep pace with Rialto, so here we go. All but 2 of us will live or die by USC winning by 7+. 2 weeks ago, OSU beats Fresno at last second by 3. Last week USC beats Fresno by 28. HMMMM……

Because I believe the order of the PAC 12 has been restored by sheriff Riley, I’m going big.

Alright dammit. I have slipped to the bottom just because I have been cautious and because Fresno State’s two best players were knocked out before halftime (I was looking pretty good on my picks this past Saturday until then)! (I know, no excuses). Time for a bold play to either get back in this or flame out, though! —

Hi John, I am confused. Week one my “winnings” total was 29,500, but this week I only showed 20,000 points as a beginning balance. I admit I know nothing about betting, as seen by my bet on San Diego St, but I think my balance should be higher this week.

No worries it’s just for fun. If it were real money the zeros wouldn’t be there and I would have jinxed the team. If I win I am goto ask that the money go to the TMB from the blog.

USC -6.5 for 10000. No way we don’t beat them by multiple scores.
