MLB “Press Your Luck” Contest (8/2)

Free to Play

The goal is to get on a winning streak

Once you reach a prize, you can take it and end your streak

Or

Press your luck and try for a better one

If you Press Your Luck and lose, You get nothing

RULES
1. Picks must be made on consecutive days. If you forget to make a pick, your streak is over and you win nothing
2. Sides and totals only. No RL, 1st 5 wagers or anything else
3. Total wagers will count for any game that is considered official. Even if it only goes 5 innings. This could work for or against you
4. Closing lines at Free Sports Scores and Betting Lines will be used. Game must be posted before listed start time there
5. No line above -170 will be accepted. If the line closes at -171 your wager is void and your streak is over. No 2nd chances or another pick allowed
6. Lines change a lot throughout the day so be very careful about posting early or playing a game near the cutoff number of -170
7. Picks must be posted on day of game. Post full team name. No need to post pitchers or the line. Both could change
8. Once a play is posted it is final. Even if a pitching change is made
9. If your game is rained out, you must make another play that day or the streak is over
10. If you win a GC, you can keep playing but only for points

TO END STREAK AND ACCEPT PRIZE
1. You must post in the daily thread no later than 7:00 PM est. and say you are ending your streak
2. If you say nothing by the set time, you must post a game and play on
3. If your streak ends at any point with a loss, you get nothing

The question is .......

How long are you going to Press Your Luck?

As stated in rule 4, your game MUST BE posted before the listed start time. If that time is 7:05 and you post at 7:06 or 7:08, that game is VOID

We do this with every contest and there are no exceptions. At 7:06 the book is closed on that game. We do it because if we let it slide for one, we have to do it for everybody, or it isn't fair

Also


Please, Do not post a line or a number with a total. Everyone who played a total on opening night and posted the number had it wrong, on both games. We are using closing lines at Free Sports Scores and Betting Lines

2 simple examples of how a post should look

ex. #1

Streak 1

New York Yankees

ex. #2

Streak 0

New York Yankees Over


That's it, no numbers need to be posted. If you want to see the lines, go to the link i provided. Thank You
