vBook: Zwick performance vs. Cincy

    This is a pari-mutuel event. Odds will be determined based on total amounts wagered after the event has closed.

    (Since I will be out of town these odds probably wont be posted until after the game has been played, but if you got a D or better in algebra you can probably figure them yourself. If you flunked algebra go back to the Michigan board where you belong.)

    Since this is Justin's first game I thought it would be fun to predict how he might do. To keep a lot of ORs and ANDs out of the wager I decided to go with fantasy-like points as follows:

    6 points for a rushing or passing TD
    1 for every 10 yards rushing and passing combined (truncating any extra)
    -2 for every interception or lost fumble
    2 for a rushing or passing point after conversion

    For example - if he has 156 yards passing and 28 yards rushing (184 total), one TD and two interceptions, he would accumulate 18 +6 -4 = 22 points.

    I will be starting a comparable Troy Smith thread as well.

    20 points even.

    213 passing - 8 rushing = 205 = 20 points
    1 TD = 6 points
    2 INT = -4 points
    1 FUM = -2 points

    Sorry for the delay in paying this out. I was waiting for a solution on the pari-mutuel odds issue I had with the recruiting bet and never bothered to look at what had actually been wagered - which made it essentially a 1 to 1 odds bet on 20-29 points.

    You might want to check out the political forum. The Kerry supporters over there are proposing that anyone with vCash over $1,000 be taxed at 50%. The money will be used to develop treatment programs for those with vGambling problems and to subsidize those with less than $100 vCash.
