49th TA77.net Pick em' Invitational (Enter by 7/27 9am PST)

Post by kensrs » 15 Jul 2019, 07:01

All yes/no questions.
Winner gets 1 free video, if they get all 8 right they get 5 videos.
Enter by 7/25 at 9am PST

Congrats to a96 for winning the 48th - check your PMs to get free video
You guys hit 17 entries you win a free video, my entry is included.
If you hit 17 by 7/22, I'll give you 2 videos.

1/2 of you beat me so you get the extra free video this week.

Here is what I am offering this time:
1. If over 1/2 of you beat me, you get an extra free video from me.
2. If we hit the number players listed above this week, I will release an extra free video for you guys, this is super easy number for us to hit.
3. Anyone who wins the contest and goes 8 for 8 will win 5 free videos of your choice that are already out. I might not have everyone on file but should have most for you.

So you guys have every reason possible to enter.

Here is the schedule for this weeks contest, just pick the winners of each matchup.
Whoever gets most picks right wins, if there is a tiebreaker we go to the tie-breaker question.
If we are tied after the tie-break question, I will award the win to whoever posted their picks first on this thread.
All entries before the first game will be counted towards contest numbers, any picks after the first game will not be eligible to win. Unless otherwise specified above.
My entry does not count towards your goal so if goal is XX entries, you need to get to XX entries + me to get any free videos. Unless otherwise specified above.

NO CHEATING, I CAN SEE IP ADDRESSES SO DON'T ENTER MORE THEN ONCE, IF YOU GUYS CANT GET ENOUGH PEOPLE INTO A FREE CONTEST TO WIN FREE VIDEOS, IDK WHAT TO SAY. JUST DONT CHEAT!!!!

NEW TO THIS CONTEST: Only the first 8 questions count, UNLESS one of them does not happen for some reason. For example a fight is cancelled, then the 1st tiebreaker would act as the 8th question and count. If that were to happen, tiebreaker #2 would be the first tie-breaker and if there was a tie for some reason after that first tie breaker, whoever answered first would be declared the winner.

1. (MLB 7/25-28) - Will the NY Yankees outscore the Boston Redsox by 6 runs?
2. (MLB 7/26-28) - Will the LA Dodgers outscore the Washington Nationals by 6+ runs in their series?
3. (MLB 7/26-28) - Will the Chi Cubs outscore the Milwaukee Brewers by 4+ runs in their series?
4. (MLB 7/27-29) - Will the MN Twins outscore the Chicago White Sox by 2+ runs in their series?
5. (UFC 240) - Will there be at least 6 finishes on the card?
6. (UFC 240) - Will Zabit Magomedsharipov win via finish against Brian Ortega?
7. (UFC 240) - Will Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos win via KO in round 1 or 2 against Felecia Spencer?
8. (UFC 240) - Will Max Holloway win via finish against Frankie Edgar?

Tiebreaker #1:
(UFC 240) - How many of the 13 fights will end via finish?

Tiebreaker #2:
(MLB 7/29) How many HR's will be hit in the 7 games combined on July 29th?

If you get 2 more today, I will still honor the free video.
Come on, you got about 16 hours and just need 2 more entries.


This is insanely easy, just number 1-8, put a Y or N after each and then guess two numbers for tie breakers.
Who cares if it's all guesses, you can still win, it's happened plenty of times before.
You will help community get 2 free videos PLUS you get a chance to win free videos.

I tried to get you 2 free videos, need 2 more to 1 free video by the 27th, I'll do mine today so that is why you only need 1 and not 2.
