Contest Rules
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. The exception to this rule is Week 0 (games played on August 26th) where you do not need to make a wager.
There will be a limited number of games to choose from each week.
The contest ends on December 4, 2023.
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: john@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 by liking your wager comment.
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 wager (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 of each week of the contest. Please review my figures. If you think that a mistake has been made you must contact me by 9pm on the Monday that the results were posted, 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 -33.5 for 9000
If Caleb plays 4 quarters we win by 50 but if Coach wants to hold back the offense in preparation for Oregon we win by 34.   :wpds_wink:

What a great set of games: USC -33.5 for 1,000 (I think ASU is playing its 4th string QB and second string OL) CO +20.5. for 500 (I think Oregon wins but not by 3 TDs) UCLA +4.5 for 250 (I like the Bruins chances , even if Rising plays – he will be very rusty; I think this UCLA team is for real. Better than last year.) WSU + 2.5 for 250 (I will follow Rock on this one) Ole Miss +6.5 for 250 (I think AL lacks the O talent it had in the past) ND +3.5 for… Read more »

I can’t argue with any of this, RJJ! I am feeling a little uneasy with the Wazzu, OSU thing, because OSU has been gradually getting better for two years now, and I suspect Wazzu is a bit more of a flash in the pan waiting to be smacked down. Wazzu is also not a particularly intimidating home environment, but maybe it will be so with both teams battling to stay undefeated. I am trying to stay away from betting teams/games where I am emotionally involved, because I get those games wrong almost every time!

The team you love is the one you probably know the best but hard to make an objective informed decision though. Coach Prime sucked me into the hype with the “Its Personal” bit, thought he would win big over CSU.

Give me:

Colorado +20.5 for 3,000 (If they looked ahead, that means they’re READY!).

Washington State +2.5 for 2,000 (Dog at home theory).

Sure-To-Be-Regretted Self-Jinxing and Team-Jinxing AMENDMENT to my picks:

Please add USC -33.5 for 6,000. I don’t like touching that big a spread, and I lose every bet I place on SC, but I just can’t deny how bad ASU really is. And even if the scrubs are in before halftime, they are coming off a week that was designed to make the scrubs into a viable second unit, and the pressure is on at those positions. Help me Rhonda!

This bet amendment was as ill-advised as my post suggests I knew it would be. Pronouncement. I will NEVER bet on or against USC ever again!!! No matter what SteveG says!!!

USC-33.5 for 7,000 this will either bring me back or flush me out, but we put up some big numbers on Stanford and I don’t see a reason for that to end.
