  • WORLD CUP POD RULES!!

    I was talking with owner of the site, Terje and he agreed to organize a special WORLD CUP POD!
    Price booty will be a bit higher than for regular POD, 1st place will be awarded with 150 EUR, second place with 100 EUR and third place will bring 50 EUR!

    At the same time, we will change the regular POD a bit, so June and July are going to be merged, 15 picks will be needed to finish the competition and prices are going to be as usual (110 EUR - 60 EUR - 30 EUR).

    Here are the rules:

    As I already announced inside "WORLD CUP POD" thread, we will organize a special competition during WC in Football (Russia, 2018).

    The Competition

    The competition has the purpose to gather the best bets of a certain day of WC 2018. It's for fun, but the competition can also be a good place for tipsters to find picks quicker than browsing all pages. You can place your Pick of the day and score points if it satisfies the conditions that are stated below. The competition lasts one month and in that period, a contestant must give exactly 8 picks. YOU CAN ENTER THE COMPETITION UNTIL IT IS POSSIBLE TO PICK EIGHT POD-s. It means, entering competition after only 7 days of the WC left, is not possible. Every missing pick till 8 at the end of the month will be punished with -100 points per missing pick.
    You must be a registered user of this forum to participate. You must have a unique IP address, not more than one competitor can use the same address.
    Odds must be between 1.50 and 3.50 and only odds taken from these 3 bookmakers are allowed:

    Bet365
    Pinnacle
    SBOBet


    You must write arguments for your pick or at least 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 22.00cet (or GMT +1). But if you do so, you must add the sponsor's banner and text at the bottom of the message, plus short version of rules. You can copy the code by pressing the quote-button on earlier Pick of the day-threads or simply drag the mouse over sponsor text selecting it, then copy and paste it in the new POD thread's starting post. Eventual mistakes in the starting post will be corrected by the mods.

    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. For your pick to count, it must be posted at least 1 hour before the event starts.

    You can back the same team/player as someone but you need to take a different bet type (for example handicap bet, different game total etc.). But this rule applies only for quarterfinals/semifinals/finals of the WC!!! In the group phase of WC and in 1/8 finals you can take picks that were already taken by other users!!! Exceptions will be made only if your pick is similar to the one taken before, but only if time difference between the picks is not bigger than 10-15 minutes.

    You can take these bet types (but only inside allowed odds from 1,50 to 3,50!):

    -Asian handicap bets (final or HT)
    -European handicap bets (final or HT)
    -Over/Under bets (Game total) (final or HT)
    -Home/Draw/Away bets (final or HT)
    -Double Chance (1X,12,X2)
    -Both teams to score (Yes/No)
    -Half time/Full time
    -Player to score (anytime scorer, first scorer)
    -Number of corners (final or HT)
    -Number of cards
    -First team to score (Yes/No)
    -Second team to score (Yes/No)
    -number of goals scored team 1/team 2


    You can choose the games/events from the bookmakers listed above, but they must start before 10.00 CET the next day.
    Events that start between 00:00 CET and 10:00 CET belong in the previous day's thread. Things to be clear, the events starting exactly at 10.00cet, do not belong to the previous POD day thread.
    You must write the correct bookie and correct odds in the time of your posting.
    If moderators of the competition need a proof about the correctness of the bookie and the odds, have right to ask it from the competitor that posted the pick.
    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. Write your preview with your own words, copy/paste from other members or external sites is strongly forbiden, unless its obvious it is your writing there as well. 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, moderators will add the final result in your post.
    You can not edit your posts in POD. If somehow you have forgot an important thing to write, like Odds, Bookie, Statistics or you have some errors that are important to be corrected, post a second post on time in the same thread with the correction in it.
    YOU SHOULD ALSO ADD NUMBER OF PICKS MADE SO FAR AND SCORE TO EVERY POD MADE.
    It should look like: (Pick #x, score: +xxx x/x).
    Everyone knows his own statistics and should write it, regardless if his results of the previous days are marked or not.
    If you have time, its a good thing you copy your pick/preview to the corresponding BA subforum, for the pick to be discussed further.

    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 not allowed to pick odds below 1,50 and above 3,50.
    The contestant that scores the highest number of points with 8 picks, will win the monthly competition. In case he fails to give 8 picks, 100p-for every missing pick- will be deducted from his score.
    To win Special WC POD you MUST make 8 bets ! Hopefully we will have time to update the standings everyday, but there may be some delays from time to time.

    Cancelled Bets

    Regardless of every bookies policy in order 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 exception will only be made if the POD competitor has "days trouble", or has no spare days for another POD pick and its not his fault (pick taken before postponement) that the event didn't started or finished. This way, the pick will counts as 0 in the statistics.

    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 one of the moderators .

    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 in order to solve the problem. FIGHTING IS PROHIBITED.

    Good luck to all!!!!!

    Team goals are a good bet

      Yes, I think that would be allowed.
      Also, I would limit number of picks for the competition to 8.
      That would be enough, would make the competition more interesting till the end. Also there will only be 2-3 matches per day and later even less.
      I am thinking about 6-7 different specials that could be possible to take, but they all need to be short term, connected to games, for instance red and yellow cards, corner bets, teams to score, both to score y/n and so on.

            This sounds great and very interesting imho. Maybe also goals in 1st/2nd half besides that you mentioned. Think that should be fair amount of bets to be taken.

              Hi. My first value touch is to take Costa Rico to go through to the next round.
              Odds around 5.
              Last World Cup they were fantastic team.
              Also the group is poor. Brazil and three same nations Serbia, Switzerland and Costa Rica.
              If they will win against Serbia in the first match everythink could be possible. So for me 5 is a pretty good value.
              Second
              Croatia to not pass the group. They got stars but luck that they will play final championship. I dont see here any chance to change. GL.

                Because it's World Cup, there will be some surprises at big odds.
                Even in group stage there will be winners at 3.00, 4.00 even at 5.00 odds.
                Or at goals where they need goal difference at last group stage round.
                I agree with red cards and corners bets too.
                Or Suarez to bite someone bets

                I suggest odds for WC POD to be from 1.50 to 3.50.

                Cheers friends
                MAZEDONIEN ÜBER ALLES !!!

                  Wait, so I don't understand the merging thing, I mean I understand we merged June and July to have higher prizes for World Cup POD but does that mean that regular and WC POD will be played at the same time? Like separate competitions?

                  Like for example, somebody played WC POD for June but he also wants to play June/July merged POD, can he post the same WC picks on both PODs or how does it work?

                  Or WC bets are only allowed for WC POD?

                  Also, last time we had this in 2016 for EURO I think Foxccs allowed all kinds of bet, like over halftime and under halftime etc.

                  Even though I was all for lower odds in regular POD I must agree with Louis here, specials and other bets for WC POD are useless if odds are only 2.25, I think odds should be 3.50 for WC POD, otherwise specials and other bets hold no value really. But of course keep the lower odds for normal regular POD 2.25.
                  The Aesir will welcome me. My death comes without apology.
                  And I welcome the Valkyries to summon me home!

                    Rules are not set yet but I agree with higher odds, all kinds of specials (which we will define) and also these POD competitions will be separate and they will take place at the same time.
                    I lean towards the rule that we would not allow WC picks in regular POD. I would reserve that competition for other picks, which will be plenty in June and July.
