Finals 1/16/07

This is the third straight time that deliveryman2 has been in the finals. This means that he has surpassed around 60 cappers over three contests.

Not bad!

Good Luck Gentlemen.

5 Picks and one tiebreaker (selected by Jedi): No money lines, unless they are Underdog bets. No Parlays, No Teasers. We want sides or totals, thats it. No Props.


If there is a TIE, I will pick a game for both of you guys to cap tomoorow, and you have to come up with a side or a total. But either way....GOODLUCK TO BOTH OF YOU. And "May The Force Be With You"

Smackdown Round 3

Second Round; SMACKDOWN!

Second Round: All day long! Start at Midnight tonight: End at midnight tomorrow night.

You have $100.00.

You must make more money than your oponent.

Anything goes!
Any Bet counts.
No limits.
$100.00 and that's it.
You can even choose to not do a thing, and hope that your opponent get's really dumb with his money.
Parlays count.
Teasers count.
Anything goes.

But you must post all lines. Post all results. and really help me keep track of your bankroll. This should be very entertaining, but I don't need anyone making this hard on me.
If you bet $10.00 on a +936 wager, then I expect you to let me know the calcualtions. I wont do them for you. Parlays?
detail the payout.

Just keep a record of each bet on one post all day. If you don't know how to "edit" your post, then we can help.

This round puts alot of the work on your shoulders.
But I think it should reveal who the smart cappers are.
Who can manage a bankroll and keep it alive, while trying to stay ahead of the next guy.
Every bet must made so that your opponent can see what you're doing. ok?

Total disclosure.

321's Bracket Update

Welcome to the Pregame Smackdown!

Here are your cappers:
Deliveryman2, TiJones, Callmaker, Golden Greek, Ruckus, PoPo from the 5-0, Boston Buster, Jason Richardson, Redneck23, BigShot, Soonerfan, Steelers Bed Sheets, oopie, winninmoney, mmmarseil, TrenchCoatMafia.

Deliveryman and Trenchcoatmafia are proven winners. Both of them we're hitting above, or around 75% when they met in the finals of the last Smackdown contest. The only thing that stopped deliveryman from winning his second Championship was the fact that he failed to guess the correct number in my head. Trenchcoatmafia guessed the exact number (7), and won the Smackdown.

Now these warriors are paired up on opposite sides of the bracket. It will be a long hard road for both of them if they meet for a rematch.

Trenchcoatmafia may have the lower seed, but his road may be easier. He faces a relative newcomer in his first match. But it's never easy to predict the performance of a Waterboy. There may be a seasoned capper hiding under all that red!
If the Mafia gets past mmmarseil, then he may have to face his first HAMMER. Oopie was upset by an opportunistic capper and never regained his winning form in the last contest. This time around, I'm banking on oopie to get the hot hand!

Here are just a few of his stats:
CFB: 131-100 +30.6 Units Bowl Games: 21-16 +11.8 Units
NFL Playoffs: 5-3 +3.4 Units
Preseason NFL: 16-10 +5 Units
F'ball GOY: 2-1
NBA: 16-10 +10 Units
Total: 300-248 +41.7 Units

Redneck23 is one of the best situational cappers at Pregame, but his style mimics that of a sharpshooter. He's a careful, intelligent analyst. He picks his shots and does very well. But what happens when you get a sharpshooter out in the open? What will occur when we throw him down into the Pregame Alley?

We'll find out this weekend. He has to get past Soonerfan. Don't let the blue fool you. He's a Hammer waiting to happen! I think Redneck has a rough path to the final two, but he will enter as a favorite against Bigshot (-170) and if he faces Soonerfan, then he will catch -115.
Deliveryman has his work cut out for him! If Mr. Jones gets shoved out of the way, then he'll have a very dangerous match-up ahead of him: both Callmaker and Golden Greek can put together a nice string of wins.
I'm going to step out on a limb and call for Jason Richardson to meet deliveryman in the finals of the top bracket.

What I've seen from previous Smackdown contests is that slow, thoughtful cappers have a difficult time moving through the contest. The cappers that have a broader understanding of the sportsworld tend to muddle their way through pretty easily. Though they may not have the better "real-world" record. the rapid fire capper tends to survive in man-to-man brawls, like the Pregame Smackdown.

Here are Three2Won's Power Ratings (not order of finish)
1. Redneck23
2. Jason Richardson
3. oopie
4. Soone
rfan
5. deliveryman2
6. Trenchcoatmafia
7. Golden Greek
8. BigShot
9. PoPo from the 5-0
10. CallMaker
11.Boston
Buster
12. winninmoney
13. Ruckus
14. mmarseil
15. Steelers Bed Sheets
16. Ti Jones


My personal opinion is that Soonerfan is the most dangerous underdog.

Also: don't forget Spartan as a replacement.

Good luck Guys!

Round 1
I propose that you make 3 wagers.
For a tie-breaker. You will pick a final total in an NBA game chosen by JediMindTricks.

This is the format for the first round only.
