The competition lasts one month and in that period, a contestant must give 10 picks.YOU CAN ENTER THE COMPETITION UNTIL IT IS POSSIBLE TO PICK TEN POD-s.

You must write arguments for your pick or at least a give a link to a prediction on BA main page, written by yourself.

About the conditions

Anyone is free to open the new thread if we haven't posted the first message after 00.00 (GMT +1). But if you do so, you must add the sponsor's banner and text at the bottom of the message. You can copy the code by pressing the quote-button on earlier Pick of the day-threads. You can only give one pick per day. Your pick must be different to all other placed picks, but you can back another team/player in the same game as someone else has taken. You cannot back the same team/player as someone else even if you take a different bet type (for example handicap bet) .(Exceptions will be made if your pick is similar to the one taken before, but only if time difference between the picks is not bigger than 10 minutes) .

You can take only this bet types : 1X2 bets,Double chance,Moneyline bets, handicap bets (Asian and European handicaps) and Over/Under bets !

Specials (first half bets,first quarter, more goals in first half, anytime scorer,goal scored between 10-15 minute etc. etc), and halftime/fulltime bets are forbidden. You can choose the games/events from the bookmakers listed above, but they must finish before 13.00 (GMT +1) the next day. Voided bets will not be included in the scoring. A pick without comments will not be regarded as a valid pick. You must write why you have chosen the pick or at least give a link to your own prediction at Bettingadvice. It's not enough to write "Team A is much stronger, they will crush team B" or analysis based only on statistics. Have in mind that the purpose of the forum is to help other tipsters find good picks. Write sport,league or livescore link if you think it's necessary. Post your pick at least an hour before the game starts. When the game has finished, please save us some time by adding the final result in your post (press the edit-button at the top-right corner of your post).Those who will be caught cheating by editing their picks inorder to avoid a lost pick will be disquailified from the competition.FROM NEW SEASON YOU SHOULD ALSO ADD NUMBER OF PICKS MADE SO FAR AND SCORE TO EVERY POD MADE OTHERWISE YOUR PICK WILL BE VOID. It should look like: (Pick #x, score: +xxx x/x).

You can change technicalities until 1 hour before kick off. If you write your preview at 15:00 CET and the match starts at 20:00 CET, you are free to change the odds if you've found better odds, and you're free to change the bookmaker anytime until 19:00 CT

Scoring

A pick that was wrong will cost you 100 points. When you've made a correct pick, and it satisfied the conditions, you will gain 100(Odds-1) points. For example, a successful pick @ 1.85 will give you 85 points. This is the net profit if you had staked 100 units. Asian Handicaps will be calculated accoringly to the net profit. It is, however, allowed to pick odds above 3.50, but for the competition a maximum of 250 points holds. Obviously, this is done to avoid all-or-nothing attempts. The contestant that scores the highest number of points with 10 (and no less) picks, will win the monthly competition.In case he fails to give 10 picks/month 100p-for every missing pick- will be deducted from his score.
To win Lakinis Summer POD you MUST make 20 bets and no less! Hopefully we will have time to update the standings everyday, but there may be some delays from time to time.



Asian HCs <<NEW>>

Any picks regarding manually adjusted Asian lines (like those that Bet365 and Pinnacle offers) will not be accepted and will be considered as VOID!



Cancelled Bets <<NEW>>

Regardless of every bookies policy inorder for a bet to stand, the game (whatever sport) must end normally.If (for any reason) it is suspended then any picks on this game will be considered as VOID!

The prize

The winner(s) will recieve money prize. We will personally contact the winner as soon as the round has finished.


Disputes

The organisation reserves the right to exclude picks and contestants from the competition, when they feel it is necessary. Don't forget this competition is for fun in the first place, and honesty is the best policy. If you have questions, suggestions or comments about the competition or the standings, send a private message to Minov,Casabel, Macot, Smeu or MNC.

No fighting over stolen picks or any other reason should take place in the competition.Those who have problems with other members should P.M any of the moderators inorder to solve the problem.FIGHTING IS PROHIBITED

Good luck to all!!!!!

This month started, but I think we need to clear one thing regarding asian handicap and voided bets. So far, when pick is voided it was calculated as it never existed. OK, full stakes are back, so you can use them again - sounds logical. But, if you lose half of stakes (on -1/4 handicap, for example), you lose only 50 points, but you - of course - can not bet with another 50 (even if you twice get 50 back, so you have 100, ou can not use them :)).

For every half lost bet you'll get -50 points !


It should not be technically hard to do it. Only little problem is in "hits column". For example, is a contestant have 3/5 (3 correct out of 5) and then voided pick, you could write "3/6 (1 voided)".

We have talked about this one, and after all just letting voided bets slip by is the most conveinient way of handeling them, since you didn't lose or win. And for competition purposes there's really no reason to include vioded asian bets in the standings as they don't matter much anyway in the end. Nothing lost, nothing won.

Sorrry guys can I have a combo pick for pick of the day competition or not??

Combo bets arenīt allowed in this competition... you can pick only single match.

Macot
29-03-04, 23:16
Someone proposed today that should be the rule to put with every POD: number of won picks / number of posted picks.
I support this. I even used to put all my previous picks with results. It is just one copy/past action and it is very useful for others. As nobody follows my custom, I would like to know what do you think about it?

I will ask everyone to do that from next month, but if you forget, it wont be a problem, I will add it ,OK?
:wink:

07-04-04, 20:48
I am quite new to this... Just 1 confusing point...

For every pick do you stake 100 pts? Or for the next pick do you stake the winnings off your last bet?

casabel
07-04-04, 20:56
...its 100 per pick...

nightwatcher
10-04-04, 12:19
hmm, i'm not sure if i understand smthing.

If i won pick at odd 2.15 , and it is my first pick, than my score is 115 or 215 to count it ?

thanks

115 is right. You bet 100 units. You get back 215 units. Net profit is 115 units.

Just quick question. If bet is void, does that means that this void one does not count and i still have bet to pick?
:oops:

You can take a different bet type from the same match!What you cant do is play a different type of the same outcome.For example if someone has taken Arsenal-M.U--->1 then all other types that imply arsenals win are not allowed.

Macot
03-07-04, 14:23
Can I join this competition now :?: Its a new month so, i wanna know can i start writing my picks :?: :!:

Please answer :!: :?:
Of course you can!
Besides, in t he summer, three months count alltogether, June, July and August, you have enough time to make 25 picks, still 60 days left until the end!
Good luck!

Hi, I have one question.
Is it possible to pick a double chance if it is not offered by the bookie?
I mean to combine odds for win and odds for draw and make the oddds for 1x.

Satyr
22-07-04, 19:12
Sorry, my friend, but the rules do not allow it.
Why?
Well, simply because everyone would go running around making "home made" bets, and it would turn everything into chaos.

Guys we decided to slightly change the rules for the POTD comp. in the new season.Please bother to read some new rules we have added..I have highlighted with bold what I consider more important so please read the rules before you enter the new competition.

casabel
07-09-04, 11:49
max bet changed to 3.50...

strandns
14-09-04, 09:36
that is why everyone is playing in it of course to win money$$$$$$!!

Offcourse not...
BA has over 5000 members, and 1 man gets the 100$ each month, so it would take 40 years for everyone to get that 100 - so, you're one of the minority who is in for money, but I cheer for you - just be patient, your turn will come, one day :wink:
And hey, we're talking about 100$ :!: , that's less than most of us stake for a single bet, so you can win 5 of those per day, following good tipsters and predictions - and that's what it's all about 8)

Well I completed my 10 picks though there is still 14 days the end of the month, can I start again in this month?

casabel
17-10-04, 11:14
no man!
because i want to sleep at night... :D
if you want you can make a thread and call it "pick of the night"-as my friend strandns suggested-where you and john can post!!!

hehehe just kidding
feel free to continue posting picks in the current comp. and keep in mind 2 things:

1)your additional picks will not count for the comp.
2)anyone can take same pick as you since you have finished

you cant start again

When exactly this month competition ends? Tuesday to Wednesday midnight?... I'm asking to be sure if I can pick an NBA game that starts for example at 3:00 GMT, as in Europe it's already December, but in the USA - it's still November.
:roll:
Thanks for reply

Macot
28-11-04, 22:37
Yes, a good question, but the answer is clear and I think you will like it!
The November Comp. ends Wednesday morning, you can include all American sports which start after midnight 30.11/1.12...
GL!

I have a question about the odds. Which odds will be counted, the one which I got when I posted the pick or can I change it if it's risen :?:

Example: i wrote a POD AH +0,5 for Portsmouth today and the odds were 2.0 but now its gone up to 2.07 ,can I change the odds in my pick :?:

There is one change in the rules we will apply from 1st February, it wont be allowed to take Bet365 Asian Hdcps on changing lines, they are impossible to check (only for membmers) so totally unuseful for this competition.
I wanted to wait till the end of this month, so that I wouldnt have complaints about that.
Opinions?
:wink:

Aragorn78
02-03-05, 09:50
Sorry for the trivial /maybe/ question but I'm not sure I did understand:
The picks # 11, 12, 13... do not count for the competition, only the first ten?

strandns
02-03-05, 14:42
Yes, you are right.

Jumbo
30-05-05, 12:49
You have to change the rule about the number of picks. There should be just minimum number of picks. So every tipster should post at least 10 picks every month and he also can post more then 10 if he wants
I know that now almost all the football leagues are finished and there is no big choice for betting but from september when all the leagues will be active again when we will have football matches every day, basketball every day, tennis, hockey... there is enormous number of events every day. So we (the tipsters) by posting picks almost every day (at least 15 every moth) can bring even more profit to the users of this forum who are here just for reading picks. I know that there are many users here who visit BA, the BA forum and specialy this POD section and wait for picks from Pitersson, Nightwatcher (and many others excelant tipsters). So by letting us posting more then 10 picks evry month, we can give bigger choice and bigger profit to the readers

Sorry for the mistakes that I've made. My English is not excellent but I think that you have understanded what I wanted to say :wink:

Everyone can post >10 picks per month( I saw u did :wink: ) but only first ten counts in the standings.
We can't count the others too because that means to be unfair with the others who are posting just 10.
:arrow:

CG
30-05-05, 13:55
because 10 picks a month means 1 pick every 3rd day

Which means that you shouldn't need to take picks which you are not happy with, and that you shouldn't need longer to compensate for a poor start. ;)

Macot
09-07-05, 06:56
what happens if i write more than 20 picks?tnx

You get points for your FIRST 20 picks, others are only for helping peopel, but you dont get points.
:wink:

sly
13-07-05, 16:23
hello i dont know about this question!!

for example i take a major league baseball pick!!

for example Yankees -1.5 at odds 2.5

and then later the odds increase to 2.8 or decrease to 2.3

what is that going to be is it going to stand 2.5 odds ??

yes for the POD comp the odds will count from what u find the time u write your pick.. :wink:

I think you're even allowed to change the odds if there's more than an hour time before the game starts (if you find better odds of course :wink: ).

Hi,
I think the idea of this competition is great i read the picks for a month now and some were really valuable...so i decided i will particpate (of course with the begining of the new month)...i have one QUESTION though:
does every bet i decide to take is covered with 100 units...cuz i saw some people write stuff like 8/10 units(does it mean they loose 80 points in case of a wrong pick, also if i bet 8/10 on 2.00 odd how much i win-60units???)...and some don't write anything(if i don't write anything that means i bet 100units)???
THANKS

Macot
21-09-05, 23:36
It is always 100 units, but because it is only the same amount, people are writing ,how confident they are in their pick: so 8/10 is very confident and 3/10 not very much...
GL!

"Pick void. You cannot back the same team as someone else even if you take a different bet type .
"

this rule is a bullshit .. because he took the team on HT,and i took the team with HC(-1) at final time .....
But i will try to respect it ....

Macot
23-09-05, 04:59
Sorry, Razvi.
But we hade to include this rule, otherwise, you would get 10 bets on one team, which would help nooen (home win, handicap, Asian, half time, hlaftime/final time, etcetc...

maybe the answer is somewhere in the 6 pages behind but i really don't have time for it (6 pages and no general conclusion for the rules at the end!?)
my questions are
1. Is the rule for max stake 3.5 active?
2. If yes, have anyone thought for the possibility that the competitors could take bets over 3.5 but at the end the points to count like it was 3.5?

I don't know where to find odds around this for my today pick, in wich i am very confident and everywhere it is 4,5 (exept my local with 4 but can't use it anyway :D ).

So can i take my POD with stakes 4,5 even if at the end it will count for 3,5 and is there such a rule?
thank you in advance

Latin The answer is in these 6 pages :P ....

You can take odds over 3.50 but you can't get more than 250 points for them !!!
Pick with odds 3.50 counts the same as pick with odds 35.00 !!!

Minov
14-11-05, 16:12
Is it normal the POD contestants to edit their odds after taking a bet?
This doesn't happen in real betting as you know.
It would be apreciated for others to place an edit with the location of the new odd but if you have already taken it - it should be final.
In the other case i can take every bet early in the morning, so noone taes it and one hour before the game to look for better odds and change it.
I think this is not fair and one of the reasons why we canceled the 3 in a row bonus was with the goal thi competition to be closer to real betting.

I guess youīre talking about what i did with my todayīs pick.
If itīs forbidden to edit the pick i have no problem to take it back to the previous odds, the difference is just 0.04 (1.91 now, 1.87 before).
I changed it because i found it better in other bookie, no because the first bookie changed the odds.

It is not forbidden ! The rule says that you can change technicalities until 1 hour before kick off, and it means that you can also change the odds,the bookmaker etc !!

Not everyone has the plessure to be on Saturday and give a pick, so I will open a new POD thread at 22.00
Maybe I should send my pick to one of the moderators...

kind regards
saab

You can send the pick to a friend or one of the moderators...but please donīt start everybody doing that because itīll make us crazy. :P :P

And also have in mind that you might lose your pick if another user posts it before your friend or the mod does...and thatīs nobodyīs fault. :wink:

Guys, yesterday the POD thread was opened before 12:00 CET ( The first POD was posted before 12:00), and it's not allowed. It happened before, but it won't anymore !
So, from today, me or MNC will open the threads earlier, lock them, and unlock them at midnight.

Good luck !

Minov
29-12-05, 10:18
New rule from January guys :

We had many situations where picks were voided, just because someone was 1,2,5 or 10 minutes late and his pick was taken by somebody else.

The rule says : You cannot back the same team/player as someone else even if you take a different bet type (for example halftime/fulltime) or back them with handicap.

And from now on : (Exceptions will be made if your pick is similar to the one taken before, but only if time difference between the picks is not bigger than 10 minutes)

So, if someone took Juve-Milan home win at 12:00, you can take Juve-Milan 1 HC or 1x ( but you still can't take the same bet) if you post your POD 10 minutes after the previous pick, in this case, until 12:10 ~!!!!

GL !

30-12-05, 12:54
probably you should change the rule:
- anybody can open the thread, but if a pick is posted before 12.00 - void.
- only you can open the thread at any time - everybody wait patiently with a finger on the submit button :P

You can all open the new threads before 00:00 CET, but you can't post your POD's before midnight CET.

You are all taking advantage of my good mood and my kindness 8) , but it will stop.
From now on i will leave MNC to make the decissions. And he's a beast. He doesn't have heart but stone.... watch out in 2006 guys !!!!!
kidding, he's the greatest guy in the world !

Guys, this is how it works:
There were couple of breaking the rules today, and no matter how Minov's mood today were, rules still must be applied:

1) All picks posted before midnight are voided.
2) You also can't post "reserve" pick, as zzax did today, fearing his first one could be cancelled. Sorry, but I guess it's a gamble. Maybe you can post the second one AFTER the first one is definitelly cancelled, but if there's still 1 hour margin before the start.

Guys, from today we have a new rule :

You can take only this bet types : 1X2 bets,Double chance,Moneyline bets, handicap bets (Asian and European handicaps) and Over/Under bets !

Specials (first half bets,first quarter, more goals in first half, anytime scorer,goal scored between 10-15 minute etc. etc), and halftime/fulltime bets are forbidden.

Also, from today, half lost picks count as half lost , and you'll be getting -50 ( not -100 as it was) points for every half lost pick

THIS IS NOT A RULE, ONLY A SUGGESTION :



Well, it is true, another option would be, prize is won by all those who make 8/10 or better! If there is noone winning, the prize goes to next month, if there are more, they share... this way peopel would care only that they win the pick and they wouldnt care about odds. The only limit I would make, would be odds: at least @1,75. There would be no top odds limitation needed and no specials limitation needed. People would only care to win the pick!Perhaps worth considering one day...

minor in quality but cutting half of the possibilities for betting is quite a huge change and this was exactly my point, forbidind for the fact of doing it and no real changes in the quality


Exactly the opposite, mate.
Once you experience life as some of us, you'll notice that quantity is most of the time reverselly proportional to quality.
So, by reducing the choices, reducing the silly & fun-bets, we're increasing the quality of the competition itself, as you'll have much more helpfull picks for your own betting, instead of some "Arsenal to score between 15-30" bets, which were of surelly no help to anyone.
Also, the competition is called Pick of the day, and can you seriously believe that the mentioned bet or perhaps Arsenal HT/FT X/2 could be one's best pick of the day?

Hello
I did not read all pages of the thread but the first posting containing the new rules.

I have two questions before starting with this competition:

Do I have to do my calculation by myself or is there someone calculating all picks to get the winner?

Do only the "best" 10 PODīs count as someone who has 30 PODīs has a advantage to someone who only had 15 PODīs because of only giving fewer PODīs with higher confidence ?

Thank you !

Thank you ! Noooooo. Nobody can take more than 10 POD's in one month !
Don't worry ! :P :P :P

Oh thanks a lot for doing so! 8O This is a lot of work, isnīt it ?

But does that mean that after 10 PODīs I am "out" or better if I posted for Jan 1 to Jan 10th a POD each day and find a very interesting bet it is not allowed to post (or allowed but not counted) ?

It's allowed to post more than 10 POD's ( it is even recomendable if you have a good pick and share it with us, even if you allready took 10 POD's), but only first 10 count !!!

OK Guys.... , you said your opinion, and i have to listen to you......
We forbidded European handicaps yesterday, but since most of you want it back, my duty is to listen to, as latso says, the voice of the people :P


So, from tomorrow ( January 3rd)...
EUROPEAN HANDICAPS are back .



I apologize to all of you who had European handicap picks today and you couldn't post them because of the new rule.


Good luck in January's Pick of the day competition

Hi,
and could someone tell me why I can`t give my HT/FT bets ? I think these bets shouldn`t be forbidden. Why are both kinds of handicaps available and HT/FT not ??

HT/FT were my main bets in POD competitions. I couldn`t be in November and December.

heh...

saab I'm sorry saab but HT/FT had to be forbidden. Many people took those X-1, X-X,X-2 picks without a reasonable explanation why were they taking them.

It was always " Team B can defend for 45 minutes but then they will get some goals".
In 80% of cases, it had nothing to do with knowledge, but only with luck (and the stats can prove this.... 2/10 HT/FT picks were won).
Like Strand said yesterday : Your REAL Pick of the day can be "team A to win", and not "team A to win X/1 or 2/1" !!!!
