NEXT GAME COUNTDOWN
Football 500 News
The Target Website Open Date is August 15th. In the meantime, we will add new features and do testing to prepare for the season.
The big NEW thing this year is the addition of Money Line Bets on select games. I will only include Money Line Odds on games where I can find a good 3rd party odds number, and on games where the odds aren't huge. Basically if the spread is over 10 points there probably won't be a money line betting option. I don't want a lucky pick by someone with nothing to lose to trump a entire year of solid handicapping. That said there will be opportunities to make nice returns betting on underdogs on the Money Line for those who take the risk.
How the pool works will remain unchanged from last year. You will notice cosmetic changes to some pages and the addition of a few informational pages.
Check back in a few weeks!
Football 500 Chat
- Chat Box vs. News Box
I will post informational things in the Chat room and will Post more Important information on the News Scoller. So please make it a habit to read the news scoller from time to time and you might want to keep an eye on the chat room as well, always feel free to participate in the chat room moving it to the home page I hope will spur more pool interaction.
- College Ranking
I will no Longer Show the Ranking next to College Football Teams, Keeping this up was just one more weekly task that I wanted to eliminate. I figured everyone has access to the Rankings and this task could be eliminated. (getting lazy in my old age)
- Week #1
There are currently two games that I will have available to bet on the week before the rest of College Football starts, I will include these two games in Week #1 with the rest of the games the following week for determining the Week #1 Winner in the $40 Pool. (Hawaii will play twice in Week#1 once against California in Australia in Late August and the following weekend against Michigan) I didnt want to ignore these two early games they will both be on National TV but I didnt want to have only two games in Week 1.
