Ok guys, going to see if this catches on or not. We have a couple preseason games left so I am going to roll out the RL Parlay Game to see if their is enough interest to reset and run it throughout the regular season. It's preseason, just practice, so I may tweak the format a bit to make sure it is something that will fly.

1. You pick a 3 team parlay based on the published spreads. You hit all three and you win 6x your bet. You miss on any one or more of the picks, you lose your money.
2. No limit on your bet amount. Each new participant will start with $100 cash on hand. You can bet as much or as little of your cash on your parlay.
3. If you go broke, no worries. The Game has employed the services of a loan shark who will gladly give you another $100 to continue playing. But from that point forward, he takes 1/2 your profits so winning bets only pay out 3x your bet. Go broke more than once? Your credit is good but your profits continue to be reduced by 50%.

So Preseason game 3 will be a trial run. Here's the line on the games, place your bet amount and 3 team parlay (based on the spreads, not outright winners) in this thread. I will track bank accounts on this first page.

Yeah, I don't know of anyway to move flex between accounts. And the house would have to get much more serious with these point spreads.
