I love this time of year anyway - xmas and bowl season Happy, but why not have a comp to go with it. Keep it simple and have 1 point for correct pick on winner and 1 point for spread winner. You can pick ahead of time, or just get the pick in on the day before kick off.

Here are the bowls for Saturday

Buffalo v San Diego (-1.5)
Fresno v USC (-6)
Tulane (-2.5) v Louisiana
Washington St (-3.5) v Colorado St

Hopefully there are a few of us playing. Good luck all

I'll have a go, as you will notice I'm a bit partial to a little competition every now and againHappy.

Saw some of those great matches a couple of weeks back, particularly Alabama/Auburn. Its a pity there isn't much liquidity on here for these games - I find it harder to operate, but can still do it, just need to change my approach a little.

I think it will happen, hope it does - that Betfair becomes legal in US - then the NFL and College Football markets could maybe get close to scale of cricket and tennis on here (also NHL, NBA for followers of those).

I'll do my research and throw my hat into the ring this evening or tomorrow morning.

Hank, do you think it's fair a S/U pick earns as many points as a spread winner?

I thought it ought to be 2 pts for a SPREAD winner, 1pt for a 'cap win.
Report Hank Hill December 21, 2013 3:15 PM GMT
I am not combining the scores DD. I'll score the match line and spread separately so it doesn't matter they're a point each.
