We all start with $1000 fictional dollars. Between now and the end of the month, you can bet however much you want to on any sports line on Bovada/Bodog (links below). Whether it's cricket, NFL, MMA, entertainment, just post the bet here in the thread. (i.e. I bet $220 to make $200 on the KC Chiefs at -210 over Tennessee). You have to place your bet before the event takes place. You can cancel your bet at any point before the event begins.

To be valid you also must post the exact amount wagered AND the current line on Bovada/Bodog (not "half my money on whatever the Red Wings' line is").

Because people may run out of money quickly I will be doing one of these every month. I'll try my hardest to keep the first post updated with current bankrolls nightly. I'm not going to set a deadline to join by, so if it's mid-month and someone wants to join, they'll start at the initial $1000 almost as if they were in the whole time but just sat on their money. The time will all be relative to the local time of the event. So as long as it's still the stated month wherever the event takes place, it's a valid event.

Also, to keep these updates from taking me an hour every night, I'm keeping everyone to a max of three bets per day (relative to when the event takes place, not when you make the bet.. i.e. on Friday I could make six bets, 3 for Saturday and 3 for Sunday). Parlays allowed. To prevent foul play (aka a leader copying someone's bets so they can't lose), no two players can bet on the same team/player (moneyline or spread) on the last day of each month.

If anyone has any ideas for changes, tweaks, etc. let me know but I feel like it'll be pretty cut and dry. Again, to make things simpler you can only use the lines posted by Bovada (for US users) or Bodog.eu (for those who can't access Bovada).

Just to clear up a prior question..

You can have three bets active for any given day, including a maximum of one parlay per day. The parlay can have a maximum of five legs. So for any given day you could have three single plays OR two single plays and a parlay with up to 5 legs. Can't have multiple parlays in play on the same day.
