Re: Crowdsource Syndicate Sports Betting

Does anyone know how the NY 14 day quarantine on states with high covid rates will influence the hot dog eating contest?

Re: Crowdsource Syndicate Sports Betting

Isn't the hot dog eating champ some 140 pound guy from Japan?
But there are different championship events. And I think our legend might be retired.
Joie Chestnut, the current champ and record holder, I think is from Kentucky.
He's also anorexic. Wtf, this is bs. I should enter. I'm perfect for this.
Who will sponsor me? I think I could win this thing. I've always been athletic. I played lots of high school soccer.

Re: Crowdsource Syndicate Sports Betting

https://pastebin.com/XYYn0idc

Been thinking a bit about the NHL playoffs, it's normally very heavy in variance and I don't expect this to be any different

with some initial looks it seems there could be some value in a few of the teams

1. The bye is nice, but it's still winning 3 vs 4 matchups for conference (or 4/5 for cup) and yet the odds are significantly higher

2. the gap between some of the teams isn't really that big - after BOS/TB there's a big cluster of teams more or less equally talented

3. the bye teams will play a round robin for their own seed which they likely won't really go all out for just trying to stay healthy + random 1 off after long break variance

so my plan is to target team on the western conference that don't get the bye

I particularly like WPG, they are basically a pickem in their own matchup vs Calgary and yet have some of the worst odds to win conference or cup. Furthermore, they have a boat load of talent on that roster and severely underperformed this season.

Going to spend some more time looking into this over next few days

Would be much better if they had to eat these instead.

Re: Crowdsource Syndicate Sports Betting

following up on NHL:
I ended up putting very small amounts on
WPG/CLB/CHI/VAN/NYR/EDM/TOR

team - payout for conference winner/payout for cup winner

WPG 25/50 - incredibly talented underperforming team that are some of the biggest dogs, genuinely considering putting down more on them

CLB 30/50 - going to be fully healthy and like WPG are far better than their record suggests

VAN 16.3/35 - Homer pick, I love watching them play, but they also face MIN, a team that wasn't expecting to get a COVID playoff spot and did a firesale mid season and will genuinely prefer to lose the opening round

NYR 26/38 - team has a scary offense that could make waves against some rusty defenses/goalies

CHI 31/70 - like NYR but better odds and easier path to the cup

EDM 11/24 - only bet on rumors Edmonton could be a hub city which would net a massive advantage - also works as a hedge since they face CHI in first round but somewhat decent as is given that in the playoffs they can afford to just put Draisatl and McDavid on the ice at the same time for 25 minutes like they did in the early season

TOR 12/22 - only bet on rumors Toronto could be the other hub city, tons of talent here as well, much higher upside than a lot of teams with much worse odds

these are just for like a buck or two, will make larger bets later on once i have more time to look into things

really hoping they just say f it and make Winnipeg the site of the playofffs

Re: Crowdsource Syndicate Sports Betting

also got western conference wins cup at +120, that's the one line I'm confident in is good as it basically assumes BOS/TB makes it there

Re: Crowdsource Syndicate Sports Betting

how is this girl -10000 to win every table tennis game?



rubina vardanyan must be the michael jordan of table tennis. Today alone she is 8-0 in ITT cup and only lost 2 rounds (to the same person). Everything else is 3-0.

guessing not having to compete against east asians a big part of the equation

Not according to Joey today on VSIN. He said he was worried the Hot Dogs would cool off too fast and not go down as quick.

yeah i don't buy this, only read it as part of a random hype video like when some athlete tweets a photo of himself doing squats and people start drafting him 2 rounds earlier in fantasy leagues

Re: Crowdsource Syndicate Sports Betting

not sure why we're trying to make it a dick swinging contest given we're here to discuss not argue

was hoping more steam would come in, yesterday the unders were at +170 but alas now at +130 doesn't seem so tasty

never said i was doing big bets either nor do i think it'll be a good direction for the thread to go into if i obliged, but if you really want it send me a pm and i can pm them to you - going to hold off until closer to the wire hoping those +170 come back on the radar as believe most market will bet it hours before it begins

certainly not betting the over at -170 and -164 given those overs haven't been exceeded most years

i do think this will be one of the safer years to back the favorites to win though given that I don't think they'll be dethroned unless it's a new up and comer out of nowhere and covid should easily put a halt on any phenoms emerging this year at least

Re: Crowdsource Syndicate Sports Betting

i took mens winner o71.5 after that tmz article and the girls winner o37.5 after she did 50 in practice. probably square bet, but what can you do.

i was going to test whether hot dogs are easier to eat in air conditioning or outside but i don't want to give myself cancer again

if you get on ACR there's a middle opportunity as they have 72.5 and 41.5 lines
