At the end of last year, Smyczek won the Champaign Challenger, where Krueger lost in the first round to a lower ranked player.

Krueger lost in qualifications to the AO, then played two rounds at Newport Challenger.

There is nothing to suggest that Smyczek won't have another comfortable win against Krueger.

Bet: Smyczek -4 @1.97 Pinnacle
6-1, 4-6, 6-3 Pick void!
Why void?
Smyczek won by 6 games.

I am being a sleeping member of this forum since long time. Betting advice posted here has helped me many times and also ruined my money many times which is part and parcel of the game. I hate losers who blame the poster after losing out. My 2 cents to improve POD contest and be helpful to this forum:

1. We need to get away with 1 pick per day rule. I feel people have to post few picks on weekdays just out of compulsion to complete 10 picks in the month when the posted bet is no where near the best.

Instead we should make 2/3 Bets per day for weekends and 1 pick per day on weekdays which will improve the quality of the bets. Trust the forum visit on the weekday is not a criteria here. Ratio of games played in weekdays and weekend is vastly different so the same rule cannot exist for weekdays and weekend. This will also help anyone who want to enter the contest late in the month.

2. Contest will have to be align to real betting world as far as possible. What I mean is, a bet of AH -1 and my team winning by 1 goal margin does not lose me money in real world. As per my experience, at many occasion it is the safest bet to avoid team going into sleep after going 1 goal up.

But in POD, I end up with -100 and 1 pick less. Instead for POD too we should not deduct the score as -100 and to avoid people taking this bet as safer bets to win contest after going ahead in the initial bets, we should not deduct the picks from their quota. They will have to complete the 10 bets criteria and if not then we should deduct points.

This will make some kind of strategy required to win the contest.

3. Last and final suggestion, we should reward winners with something additional to money. Eg. A Champion Trophy in their profile for the month with highlighted username so newbies know they are champions whenever they post.

I don't know where you got this information from but it is not true.
It is valued as 0 , not as -100.

Well , I wouldn't be against this but then the competition isn't "Pick of the day"" anymore. And it is been a long tradition this way so I don't see it changing.

My opinion.

Isn't it? Sorry but actually I did not find anyone posting such pick. So I assumed it would be -100.

With regards to tradition of POD, it can be Picks Of The Day!

Will prepare the rules, keep up with suggestions but I think this would definitely rise the level a lot and as you said, crazy hunting of crazy handicaps or draws.
So, as Miccho and Cam said, and you agreed to it too... why do we allow a wider range of Asian lines, i.e. going into the alternative Asian handicaps?

I thought we'd go for the line set by the bookies, and then in Pinnacle we'd take the equivalent.
Of course people will stretch it to get as close to the maximum odds as possible.

Let's try to do it next month with the line set by the bookies.

If choosing an alternative handicap, then it should be allowed only if it's at lower odds, so that it is a safer bet.

So, about grading my second pick, i know now i haven't posted correct type of bet as my primary pick but i was so sure i saw BTS picks among some february ones, guess i should have checked it. But still, i made secondary pick in same post as i was expecting this may happen, even chose the lowest possible odd for competition and a pick that was closest to the original. Doesn't that account for anything?
I know that you are strict when it comes to rules of the competition but i was still hoping you may accept my 1.75 pick as valid, as i explained my situation in the pick itself. I'm not gonna make more fuss about it (100***8364; at the end of a day ain't worth fighting over imo), but i do ask of you to consider and think about my situation again.

After finishing my writeup, I saw another making a similar pick. I checked before I started writing and it wasn't there but during my writing (had a coffee as well ) it was there when I posted... Hope both can stand but if not, I'll accept it as well

Limex, hi.
I did not realise you posted secondary pick when the first was cancelled. As it was a handicap, I will grade it as won.

Feri I can believe you did not see the pick that was written before yours, but unfortunately, the time difference is too high at 26 minutes. I will need to cancel it.

Im on -200 Mac. I appreciate youre trying to give an hand to a out of form candidate but you have just invented a reason to void my pick. All League One last round games started at 3.00 pm Uk time, like they usually do. Thanks and keep up the good work!

Thank you, sirac... I have checked now and you are right.
It is logical too, but I saw it written 13:30 somewhere...
Corrected!

He is cruising here so far, he is red-hot, and he should beat Cilic based on current form.

Bet: Delpo -3.5 @1.94 Pinnacle
Wrong thread, match played on 7/6/2018 pick cancelled.
7/6/2018 was last night.
The match started the day before at 14:30 CET on the 6/6/2018.

Mac it will be helpful if you allow for POD team totals but only in baseball because handicaps are out of borders so this leave only over/under game total and this not enough

or raise limits to 2,50?

Mac it will be interesting to allow on pod BTTS. It will be better for choosing instead only over/under or AH. And just for basketball fans out there team totals over/under on the game as we come in basketball season soon and handicaps just limit the choice

Mac can you add this above on POD and also basketball players over/under
It will bring more competitive picks on POD section as this under over and AH is limited in some situations

since NBA has now started, I agree with Dex. I think player overs are good idea although that would be really hard to track down with propers odds if you're not checking it Macot, since player overs are not available on oddsportal.

It's up to you I guess, or maybe to make some rule where every pick for player overs must be screenshotted, otherwise how will you know odds and line were correct if they aren't on oddsportal?

Imho it's not good decision as it will lead to very short previews with many pure statistic picks and relying on things like he averages 20 pts so he will score, he is great player etc..

I think BTTS would be great. With odds limited between 1.75 and 2.25 we don't have many choices, and this kind of bet is perfect and also one of the most popular.
As for the players over/under, I personally like it. It's not true that you can't write good previews because usually when you make such bet many factors comes into the consideration like injury's, opponent defenders, current form, type of play, average player minutes, number of shoots etc. There are some good forums where people made great analyses and last night I earned some money thanks to them.
Only problem with player's over/under will be the odds and margins which is changing a lot during the night.

BTTS makes sense, there are plenty of games, especially between two top sides, where you can see the goals coming but it's safer to go with BTTS than over2,5 as 1-1 looks way more possible than 3-0 trashing.
Players totals are not really POD thing IMO. Most obvious reason - too hard to track for mods. Then the Pandora's box might open up... "when I posted the pick the line was like that", "odds were like that", and screenshots are easy to fix even with microsoft paint or it might go further as "if you're allowing points here, then allow player to score in football, player to get booked" and etc etc. IMO you can easily share such ideas in bball section and be helpful

How sounds team totals under/over in basketball and handball then?
I agree that players total is hard to follow

Same thing, it will be impossible to track. Oddsportal does not offer team overs.

sure but on only three bookies allowed I think that will not will be hard to track as this probably never change once they set limits (I don't see movements at all) so if Pinnacle set Efes over/under 85,5 I was quite sure that they will not jump up or down like players total (same goes to handball team totals) and prices are always from 1,70 to 2,00
