I started playing a month ago and my longest streak is only 4, lol. My record is 28-12-1, though. This **** is hard. Definitely an addictive game, too.

It really is, mine is 8 lol but i like to think football matchups will be easier than all of the baseball ones i got wrong

Who do y'all got in tonight's matchup of the day between BSU and Oregon? That one's pretty much a toss-up, but I'm leaning towards Boise @ home.

I'm on a 8 game win streak right now, and I'm trying to take it slow till football gets here.

MLB/Soccer picks always screw me up.

what do you guys think about the NCAA picks tomorrow?

and the Tulsa-Tulane game tonight? The under looks tempting.

I can't even get past 4 this sucks. I usually always go with the Blue Jays or Giants when Halladay or Lincecum are on the mound.

this is the 3th round of streak for the cash that I've done, (and actually tried to get this started a while ago but only in Random thread & IRC) anyway my record is joke, it's abrley past .500 which to me is unacceptable for me, on rounds my 1st round & 2nd rounds were alot better for me winnging % wize this round ends at the end of this year i believe (Dec 31, 2009) My longest ever is only 7 too

Yea, but I don't think the game will come out to 65+ points. Tulsa's lost too much on that offense.

I used to do it but don't anymore. I got up to 9 and the Cavs lost to some ridiculous team I don't remember because LeBron sat out the 2nd half.

Just wait 'til I get more games under my belt. The under in the Tulsa/Tulane game seems to be a popular pick tonight and with a win I'd move to 30-12. I think you got some competition, djp. :)

Had a 5 game win streak going into tonight, went with the Phillies last minute.. 8-1 in the 4th already so I am looking at a W6 on the 3rd of July!

Any ideas, Carwin or Lesnar?

07-03-2010, 08:14 PM
going with carwin for the win.

thenewfeature06

Didn't pick it at all haha I have a W6 and know nothing about UFC, other than Lesnar is insane.

thenewfeature06
07-04-2010, 01:10 PM
10 minutes till the Reds game any advice on the game I got a W6, Lilly has pitched well lately but Reds players hit him well, Leake is struggling but his last outing against the Cubs was good. Scotty Rolen is not in the starting lineup and he has been a big part of there success, I want to take them but idkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

thenewfeature06
07-05-2010, 01:11 PM
Reds came through got a W7 with some shaky games today starting with the 4:10 ET, SF @ Brewers.. Jonathan Sanchez v Dave Bush and then another 4:10 Dbacks host the Cubs..

I almost went with the Yankees last night but changed my mind, should've done it. I've got a nice streak going and the Netherlands for the win as well.

07-06-2010, 11:53 AM
Why! I just picked em because they were playing Oakland and Vazquez showed some signs of improvement haha but yeah the Netherlands SHOULD win today.

i've done it before and actually got up to 70 bucks, mainly betting on tennis, but lost it all on an upset match with Roddick

Ever since the Jets lost a bunch of games they shouldn't have on WC trips I've always been overly wary of teams that should win going east to west...shouldn't be as big a deal in baseball but I was so confident in Netherlands and didn't want to lose my W9 on the Yanks before today's game.

Does anyone on here do Centsports?

I go through phases with centsports just like Streak for the Cash, it is pretty fun though. That's pretty impressive PF, takes a lot of consecutive wins to get that much money on centsports.

Never heard of it, what is it?

Basically they give you 10 cents and let you bet on sports games, if you get it up to a certain dollar amount (and I think there's some other things that come into play) they let you cash it out (though there's a limit to how much you can cash out I believe). You have to look at ads sometimes, but it's not bad...they've got most sports games and it seems to simulate actual betting somewhat well outside of the fact that you're basically betting with pennies.

14 is a pretty good one, never got that high before. The Netherlands won so W9 with a couple wierd ones tonight? should I hold off? Jurjens just coming off injury I might take Philly..

I don't like any of the matchups tonight...right now I'm going with Minnesota because Pavano has been pitching really well but with a streak of 9, you might wanna wait til tomorrow

Got a 13 game streak going, think I'm going with DeMarcus Cousins scoring more than Lazar Hayward in summer league action tonight. Almost went with Eric Bledsoe 22 or more points/assists combined against an awful Bulls summer league team but I dunno how consistant Bledsoe's going to be.

He doesn't deserve to be if he's betting against the Traditional product.

I always forget about this after a day or two. It'd probably suit me more when football, hockey, and soccer are going.

derza222
07-14-2010, 11:55 PM

Nope I'm a couple games away from even being on the active streaks list, got the Cousins pick right though. Think I'm going with the Rangers tomorrow, what do you think of that matchup? Know you're a baseball guy. Wakefield seems to get mashed by the Rangers and he's pitching poorly but I know Boston lit up Hunter last year.

thenewfeature06
07-17-2010, 09:22 AM
Probably won't make a big enough run im at W4 now but going with the Phillies at 1 o clock with Hamels on the mound. Besides the Cubs are worthless.

thenewfeature06
07-18-2010, 11:21 AM
Now have a W7 after a lucky guess this morning for cycling, any other biker haha. At 1:05 the Yanks play the Rays, first thought was go with NYY.. did some research, the lineup for NY today is terrible against Price while Pettitte gets raped by the lineup TB presented. I think I am still going NY..

derza222
07-18-2010, 12:07 PM
I'm either going with the Jays over the O's or the White Sox over the Twins. Like the White Sox-Twins pitching matchup better, Garcia is hot and Blackburn's been awful, and the difference in ERA between the two for the year is two full runs. The Jays have been great against the O's and Marcum's pitched well against them this year but Marcum coming off the DL today has me leery. Think I'm going with the White Sox.

I joined the group. I used to play SFTC religiously, as I was planning on it being my retirement package. Then I realized I'm only good at predicting football and soccer matches with any accuracy so I quit for awhile. I just started playing again here and there, won my first 5 so far but usually blow it at about this point.

Snapdraft is another pretty cool betting type of site, might be similar to centsports, but I'm not familiar with that one. Here's the link http://snapdraft.fanball.com/

If you're interested in signing up this is my referral link, I think it might hook me up with a dollar or something.snapdraft referral (http://snapdraft.fanball.com/users/join_snapdraft_from_email/242d232c532c3060600a600a)

I think back when I signed up they started me with $5 which I then quickly lost - ended up quitting altogether after that. :P
