What a better way to ring in the holiday season and new year as SBR introduces its NCAA Bowl Contest.
<p>This isn’t just any contest; <b>$5000.00 goes to the winner! </b>The 2<sup>nd</sup> place finisher receives a hefty sum of 50,000 Betpoints and the 3<sup>rd</sup> place finisher receives 25,000 Betpoints. So what are you waiting for?</p> <p><b>Rules and Requirements </b></p> <p>This contest is open across the world and that means that United States adult citizens can participate along with other countries. <b>The deadline to enter this contest is December 21 at 8:00 pm ET</b>, so don’t delay on an opportunity to make a big chunk of change and an opportunity to compete against some of the best bettors in the world.</p> <p><img style="font-size:1em" src="/picks-pictures/95700609_display_image.jpg" class="imgSelectedPicture article-image" alt="Image preview" id="ctl00_head_ArticleAdministrator_picturePreview_imgSelectedPicture" /><b>Entry Fee</b></p> <p>There is a 2500 Betpoints entry fee<em> but </em>there’s a catch for those of you who are a bit short on points. Participants can pool their money together and form a team as a single entry, create a name for your team and <a target="_blank" title="NCAA Bowl Contest: Registration Open" href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/forum/players-talk/2685744-ncaa-bowl-contest-5-000-75k-betpoints-registration-open.html">respond in the forum thread</a> listing your team name after the buy-in is paid in full. You may also be able to join multiple teams. (prizes will be split by percentages of points sent in by each team member of the winning squad.)</p> <p>Internationals have the luxury of purchasing Betpoints via Skrill and can enter ASAP and grab a spot at the big prize.</p> <p><b>The Betting Point System</b></p> <p>An official thread will be posted in the SBR Forum on December 18<sup>th</sup> and there will be a list of betting lines for the SBR Bowl Contest. Unlike SBROdds.com, these lines won’t change. Each player or team will be required to pick 15 games.</p> <p>Quite similar to other big SBR contests such as Beat the Prick, the picks will be made according to denomination. Each participant will be allowed to make 5- 3 Star picks, 5 2- star picks, and 5 1-star picks. As we know in these contests, you have to nail those 3 star picks to be on the top of the leader board, so handicap with caution.</p> <p><b>Pushes</b></p> <p>If a push occurs in any game, you’ll receive half the amount of stars that you invested on the pick. </p> <p><b>Example:</b> If Alabama is a 7 point favorite against their bowl game opponent and you invest 2 stars on Bama and they win by 7 points, then you’re credited with 1 star for that game.</p> <p><b>Tie-Breakers</b></p> <p>In case there’s a tie between 2 participants, the tie breaker will be decided as follows- <b>Tie-Breaker #1 : </b>the entry with the most 3 star wins and <b>Tie-Breaker #2</b> is the entry with the most 2 star victories. In case there’s still as tie remaining after the tie-breakers, the “pot will be split”.</p> <p>Multiple Entries are allowed per person, therefore there’s a lot at stake here.</p> <p><strong>Good Luck to All Participants: </strong>This would certainly would be a great way to get in on the plus-side for the 2014 betting season!</p> <p><em>SBR reserves the right to modify terms and or update prizing as necessary</em>.</p>
