    Mock Gambling - FINAL 4 (jjsram, HUbison, viper3, ChileDog)

    Okay, given that there has been waning interest as the season has gone on, I'm going to wrap this game up with a two-week Final Four.

    Here are the seeds:

    1. jjsram $185.00
    2. HUbison $160.00
    3. viper3 $130.00
    4. ChileDog $115.00

    The semi-final pairings are:

    jjsram vs. ChileDog
    HUbison vs. viper3

    Here's how it will work:

    Place a bet on this week's Ram game:

    Eagles @ Rams (-3)

    And for the bonus: $25.00 each:

    1. With Owens out, who will lead the Eagles in receptions this week?

    2. Who will throw for more yards, Bulger or McNabb?

    3. Who will rush for more yards Westbrook/Levens or Faulk/Jackson?

    The player from each pairing that ends the week with the most $ will advance to the final round!

    Good luck, guys!

    I am going to institute a rule, by the way...


    If any of the final 4 contestants don't place bets this week, they automatically are eliminated.

    Where are jjsram and ChileDog? I'm going to PM them, but if they don't get their picks in before gametime tomorrow, the match between viper3 and HUbison will be for the title.

    Even though I believe the Rams will win, my only shot at advancing in this competition is to go with the Eagles. Believe me, I WILL NOT be rooting for them. So....

    I'll bet $115 on the Eagles.

    1. Westbrook
    2. Bulger
    3. Faulk/Jackson

    A bold and possibly pragmatic move!


    Okay, we have the picks in for all four - good luck. The finals will be next week, and then we'll have our champion!

    Okay... we have our final pairing.


    viper3 ($285) vs. jjsram ($290)

    When the point spread comes out for next week's game, we'll get the final picks and then next week, name our Champion!

    Well that should learn me a thing or two. Twice this year, I go against my heart and pick the Ram's opponent. Both times it bit me in the butt. However, if that's what it takes for the Rams to win, I'll do it every week next year.

    May the best man win! (Although, I'm actually pulling for Viper since he beat me. At least, I can say I was knocked out by the champ.)

    HUbison, I figured it would be you in the final round. It very likely would have been if the Eagle starters hadn't been pulled. I didn't realize they were going to do that until the game was underway. It was quite satisfying to watch the game with McNabb, Westbrook and Owens sitting out. My odds went way up. Especially with Jackson tearing it up. When did you find out?
