Used to be about 1 every 5 years, and though small sample size is small I suspect the new overtime rules will make it more common in the long term. I think there were 2 last year (maybe 3?) and 1 the year before.

Re: MLB No Hitter Pool

NFL version definitely has to be something that would build up a sweat. I like the total points scored or shutout ideas.

Re: MLB No Hitter Pool

ya the shut out idea is a good sweat....nothing like a last minute meaningless FG in a blow out to make the game interesting.

could be diff payouts based on different events scaled by degree of difficulty with a tie being the jackpot.

Re: MLB No Hitter Pool

Almost everyone has sent. A couple have talked to me about non paypal arrangements. We're at the point where I'll cover the rest and chase down payment from them if a no hitter happens tonight or tomorrow and they haven't sent yet.

Re: MLB No Hitter Pool

Yeah in for the NFL if we do shut out or > x points or something but out for ties.

And an idea after the first no hitter is thrown and we re-pick teams maybe add a 31st person that pays say $15 but scoops if there aren't anymore no hitters thrown.

Re: MLB No Hitter Pool

First slight sweat for you Marlins/Astros owners out there - McCullers through 3. Yes I'm writing through 3 because I want to break it.

Re: MLB No Hitter Pool

No one wants to discuss how Mike Clevenger of the Indians has a no hitter going ?

As long as the Athletics don't score another run, we are fine.
