Beginning this Betting Thread, I will only keep scores of active participants who have a chance of competing with the scoring leaders. This change will be done to alleviate a little unnecessary workload.
The new and reduced list of scoring leaders is posted below.
To those who have made the cut:
Good luck for the final stretch!
I am now accepting bets for the game on Wednesday March 24th.
MONTRÉAL @ BUFFALO
Bets will be accepted (and may be edited) until the game starts. You must predict final score, shot totals for each team, and select exactly 3 players from each team as goal-scorers.
The list of accumulated points leaders will be posted after I've counted all the bets. No need to count your own points, I will do it for you.
[*NEW*] From now on, only those whose names appear on the accumulated points list may participate (effective until the end of the season). Others may participate as well, but their points will not be counted.
- Predicting the correct outcome of the game (Win, Loss, or Tie) is worth 25 points.
- Predicting exact final score is worth 50 points, and being 1 goal away is worth 25 points.
- Predicting the correct team with highest number of shots is worth 15 points.
- Predicting exact shot total for one team is worth 50 points. One shot away is worth 25 points. Two shots away is worth 10 points.
- Players with 5 or more goals this season are worth 15 points per goal.
- Players with less than 5 goals this season are worth 50 pts per goal.
- Players with 0 goals this season are worth 100 pts per goal.
- 1 bonus player with 5 or more goals (highlighted in blue on the Habs' list of scorers) will be worth 50 points per goal. A new player will be chosen every Betting Thread for this bonus.
