Welcome to the Handicappers Hideaway Bowl Bonanza Presented by America’s Bookie. We are looking forward to this being one of the Biggest and Best Contests on the Internet this Bowl Season. The Contest will be a challenge to each participant and it will be very fun to watch. To make it even better is that it is sponsored by one of the top US facing online sportsbooks in the world. Good Luck to everyone!!!!

We will be giving away $1K in prizes which range from iPads to Android Tablets to Laptops to Nike+ Sportwatch with GPS!!! All the prizes are listed at the bottom

Format:
• Each Handicapper will need to have an active account at Americas Bookie or Bet33 to be eligible for Full Prizes. An Active Account is determined by making at least one deposit (or multiple deposits that add up to) of at least $100 in the last month. Please email or Private Message Dirty or CG so we can verify the deposit and we will add you to the list of participants in this thread.
• All Plays will be Against the Spread
• Each Handicapper will pick 32 Sides from the 32 regular Bowl Games and weight them from 31 being the strongest play and 1 being the weakest. Then you will rate ONE game as your strongest play and it will be worth 35 points. Each Game will be worth the Number of points you rated it. (Ex. If UGA is playing Wisconsin and you rate UGA as a 9 it will be worth 9 points. If you Take BYU as a 2 they will be worth 2 points, etc). If you PUSH you will be given half of the points of a win. (if your #20 game pushes you will get 10 points)

• The Points will be added up daily after each game is played. At the end of the Contest the Poster with the Most Points will be the Champion. Losses will not be subtracted it will just be a zero.
• The plays will be posted in the Contest Post Review Forum at HH for all plays to be posted in. The thread in the General Discussion area will be used for comments, questions and entry confirmation since the Contest Room usually is on Post Review.
• All plays for the 32 Bowls Ranked will be due December 20, 2014 at 11:30 AM with the start of the R-L Carriers New Orleans Bowl
• The Plays on the CFP Bowls will be due by December 31, 2014 at 12:30 pm with the start of the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl.

Jalen's plays will count... I don't want to hear excuses why plays are late.. lines were posted Wednesday and links to the picks thread were posted then just like I said they would be. Enough with the excuses for not checking the contest threads you want to participate in. This is not Kindergarten. We are all big boys here and take responsibility for your mistakes.
