    $2500MB BETTING POOL- AFC Championship- Colts vs. Patriots

    Dont forget to check out the NFC betting pool!!!
    http://board.midibuddy.net/showthread.php?s=&threadid=87469

    No knowledge, skill or talent necessary!!!!

    MB members will buy squares for $100mb each.

    AFTER the squares are sold the numbers will be put on randomly (the deck of cards is used to create random order).

    Jeanie provides her example:
    [​IMG]

    At the end of the first quarter we check the score… if the visiting team has a 2 or 7 at the end of their score and the home team has a 3 or 8 at the end of THEIR score then I win a predetermined percentage of the pot- 10% (which, if all the squares are sold at $100 each, means I get $250!)… at the end of the second quarter we check the scores again and maybe the percentage is a bit higher 15%, third quarter 20% and final score 50%… It’s a fun way for anyone – even people who don’t know the game or teams – to get involved.



    1st Quarter- 10% - $250
    2nd Quarter- 15% - $375
    3rd Quarter- 20% - $500
    Final Score- 50% - $1250

    Final Score means the final score, not necessarily the score at the end of the 4th Quarter. That will solve the problem of overtime.

    If all goes well, I'll do one for the Super Bowl. $10,000mb pot.

    Ehh...eei? Hum-dee-doodle-pooh-bear? Spackle-dorfs? Itsakadoozieles? Corner pops with turkey paint on cards? Cheesey monkey lamps created from crackers? Cans will explode from gears needed to school the mice? Therefore, grapes don't have milk because of excessive calcium migration to Africa on grass canoes.

    What you're feeling right now is what I'm feeling...But I'll send money and say the letter E for whatever reason is mine in my mushy brain.

    Okay - an explanation is in order.... The betting square is entirely for fun.. it has little to do with knowing the game or the teams in play or even their skills...

    Its all by chance... you're buying a bit of fun and a chance to win more with your $100 - and the numbers part is almost like a lottery with 2 randoms in place. The first is that the numbers aren't chosen until AFTER you buy your squares, the second is that we don't know what the teams will score.

    Fun people... do it for fun :D
