Help me think of some 8 person SB bets

Postby goleafsgo96 » Mon Jan 31, 2005 11:34 am

Yea, last year on SB sunday i had 7 of my freinds over, nothing was planned, but by the end of the nite we were betting like mad. It was sick how much betting was going on, and i love it. This year i told them to each bring 20-30$ and id have a bunch of props involving 8 posible outcomes. We take turns drawing our pick out of a hat. I figure wed each put in 2-5$ on each prop, ill figure that out later. For now i need some ideas, i have some.

First, last, and longest Touchdowns will go to:
Dillon
westbrook
Mitchell
Pinkston
Owens
Givens
Branch
B. Johnson (Patten, which one is a better choice?)

Most scoring occurs in:
1st half of first Q
2nd half of first Q
etc. etc.

Coin toss results in:
Heads, Eagles win, Pats defend north
Heads, Eagles win, Pats defend south
Tails, Eagles win, Pats defend north
Tails, Eagles win, Pats defend south
and vice versa

So thers 5, i was hoping to come up with 8-10 different props, anyone have other ideas? Thanks!

Goleafs, here are some on ESPN, along with their 'advice' on strategies..

Some of these I think would work for you.

I think he wants ones that each person has a different stance on the bet.

FG's - 1st one of the game from 5 yd line, 10, 15, 20 up to 40 (yardage in the line of scrimmage)

Longest play - by halves of quarters

No really, I'm not having a bad day.

What number do the digits of the first person to score add up to? Someone would have 1 and 9, someone else would have 2 and 10, up through 8 and 16 (incase a d-lineman intercepts for a TD, I guess...)

We usually do a bet on the longest play non scoring. We also do the player who gets the first, first down. Thats a couple that may work for you. Ill try and think of some others that we do.

ok this just came to me out of the blue. Its perfect for 8 people. Most points scored by quarter, and to make it for 8 people you would each pick a team. For example. person A thinks the Patriots will score the most points in the 4th, whule person B has the Eagles in the 2nd.

A lot of these are similar to one's above, but basically anything by quarter will work.

Who makes the first turnover?
Eagles in 1st qtr., Pats in 1st qtr., Eagles in 2nd, Pats in 2nd, etc.

First score, first penalty, first field goal, first anything. Anything would work.

Could also be done for last anything. You would have to pay close attention though because some of these would be hard to find in any boxscore.
