      Yes, if there are exactly 6 goals and the HC is -6, then the pick is voided, and it's like you didn't take the pick !

          PALERMO – JUVENTUS away win @1.73 betinternet

          Juventus is situated at the first table position with impressive 15-1-1 record. They have all home wins, while away record is 6-1-1. In first match in 2006. they have average opponent Palermo. Palermo is expected to be in fight for UEFA ticket, even maybe for Champions league ticket, but they showed nothing special, except win against Inter at the start of league.
          Palermo have 5-7-5 record and at home they have 3-3-2. They lost at home against Sampdoria and Livorno, and draw against Cagliari, Empoli and Chievo. So, why very impressive Juventus shouldn’t win in Palermo? I can’t see reason. Juventus only lost against Milan and draw in last away match against Lazio. Now, they will be motivate to take 3 points again. Yes, Palermo won agianst Juventus last season, but Palermo isn’t so great like they were in last season.
          It will not be easy match for Juventus (against 40000 hot Palermo funs), but they won in Firenza and in Roma (against Roma). They are much better team then Palermo (everybody knows that) and I don’t believe in surprise here.
          Palermo: [4-4-2] Guardalben - Zaccardo – Terlizzi – Barzagli – Grosso – Santana – Barone – Corini – Bonanni – Makinwa – Caracciolo
          juventus: [4-4-2] Abbiati – Chiellini – Thuram – Cannavaro – Zambrotta – Camoranesi – Emerson – Vieira – Del Piero – Trezeguet – Zlatan


          1:2, PICK WON

          My first pick this year
          Italy - Serie A, Saturday 07 Jan 2006 - 20:30 CET
          Palermo US - Juventus Turin
          Pick: 1X
          Odds: 2.15 @NordicBet

          Juventus are currently leaders of the Serie A with 46 points after their fantastic first part of the season with 15 wins from 17 played matches. Their only lost match was away to Milan (3:1) and their only draw was in their last away played in Rome against Lazio (1:1). (Even if I am a big Milan fan) I have to admit that Juve played great and they deserve this position on the table.
          But today they will have very hard job. They will travel to Sicily to play at the hot Stadio Renzo Barbera against Palermo. All tickets for the match have been sold even 2 weeks ago and atmosphere will be very hot and Palermo will have great support of their fans. Every team finds it very hard to play away to Palermo because of that great support of the fans that the home side gets. This season only 2 teams have left with the 3 points from there.
          Last year Juventus were defeated there with 1:0 and the other match played in Turin ended with 1:1.
          Juventus are without Robert Kovac and Alessandro Birindelli who are injured for whole and Gianluca Zambrotta is suspended for this match too.
          Palermo have no important missings for this match. After the 2 defeats in the last 2 rounds they have to change something in order to start with the good results that will take them in the upper part of the table on a spot that will ensures them a ticket for the Uefa Cup next season.
          That’s why I don’t see any value in the 1.7 that the bookmakers give for the win of Juventus away to Palermo. I see bigger value on the double chance 1X because I think that one more time Palermo will not be defeated by Juve. 6/10 for me
          Here are the probable lineups (channel4)
          Palermo (probable): Lupatelli; Zaccardo, Terlizzi, Barzagli, Grosso; Santana, Barone, Corini, Bonanni; Caracciolo, Makinwa
          Juventus (probable): Abbiati; Blasi, Thuram, Cannavaro, Chiellini; Camoranesi, Emerson, Vieira, Nedved; Ibrahimovic, Trezeguet

          Good luck to all and Merry Christmass to all Christians who celebrate it today (Macedonia, Serbia&Montenegro, Russia...)

          1:2, pick lost
          This are first two POD from January 7th 2006. This competition is to help people find good bets in the specific day but really I can't see how two opossite posts can convince one person to take either one of this two. Therefore my sugestion is to create a rule for the competitors not to take contradictory picks on the same event (f.e: 1x and 2, under 2.5/over 2.5, EH -1/ EH +1 etc. on the same event). I think you know what i'm reffering to. I'll be around for your thoughts regarding my suggestion.

          PS: Sorry about my english, in my posts I don't have time to correct them all. Hope you get what I have to say. Cheers.

            Yes, but maybe if you see these opposite opinions, you`ll decide to be more careful about that bet. I don`t believe that if one is staying till midnight to post his pick first then this means that it`s the right pick. Cause it`s clearly a matter of "who`s gonna post its pick faster" if chosing the same match will be forbidden. And maybe the correct pick was the last one.....

              I dont get it how is my bet a "special bet" or I dont get that "NO SPECIALS" rule. One of two. I understand that taking HT/FT, first goal scorer, firsta goal from header and stuff like this as specials (they depend of team perfomance) BUT I am talking here about individual perfomance of one guy If this is ruled as special bet then f.e. Ahonen to win against Janda is special too, Andrus Veerpalu not to win is special too (which was my 2nd pick btw) etc. C`moon lets not go crazy here with those rules. Do you really want to have only "team picks" here? ... I personally rate those so called "specials" more valueable. I rest my case whatever the answer(s) or desicion.

              MM
              MM, rules won't change anymore. Not only because POD will become a circus if we change the rules whenever some competitor thinks that his pick should be allowed, but because we've thought a lot about forbidded rules, and we've realised that there is a strong reason for forbidding them.
              I like your todays pick ! As a matter of fact, i like all of your picks, because you somehow always find the right bets and make great previews. But the bet type you took today can't be allowed, because that way, i will be forced to allow f.e " Ronaldinho to score over 3.5 goals" picks. And there will be many of those picks, with odds +4.00, as there were in the past. Picks that we can call "fun picks" more than "picks with value" or picks that are ment to help the others.
              And about "individuals" vs "teams".
              Yes, the picks you mentioned were allowed. But those weren't team sports we're talking about, and basketball is. How can we know that Steve Francis won't get injured in 1st minute ? If you bet on Stive Francis' team ( have no idea where he plays. I don't follow NBA very much, only 2-3 teams. I don't find it interestingops: ops: ops and Stive Francis gets injured, then the others can cover him, and you're still in the game. But you're out of the game if he gets injured !

              I'm sorry about your voided picks, but the rules will stay as they are !!!

              this discussion should be moved to POD thoughts.
              Because we don't like selfishness here. MM's pick is good and helpfull, but it's one pick out of many, many picks.
              It was said million times and i'll say it again : POD is not only hunt for prizes, it's more about helping other people. Prizes are only a reward for those who made good picks that were followed by many people.
              Take this however you like, but i'm sure that noone took some of your picks ( even the winning ones), because nobody will open an account in the only bookmaker in the world who offers the special "total goal minutes 80", where a pick can be theoretically won if there are 12 goals, and be lost if there is only 1 goal scored in 81st minute !!!!

                People often forget that this competition is called PICK OF THE DAY = YOUR BEST PICK OF THE DAY.

                So HT/FT X/1 for instance doesn't seem to me as a potential "best pick of the day" - it is only high odds chasing.

                I don't think that opposite picks should be forbidden - for instance if somebody takes some Under, but I think it will be Over, I can't take it? People are supposed to have their own brain and to think. They will read both comments and will decide which of them sounds better.

                "4 goals or more" is exactly Over 3.5 and indeed it is again high odds chasing /for instance someone thinks the game is Over 2.5 at 1.80 but he has Over 3.5 at 3.20 and he is greedy and he wants to take it - I made this sometimes in the past months/ - you should decide about it carefully. And have in mind that "4 goals or more" is together with "0-1 goals" and "2-3 goals", but Over 3.5 is with Under 3.5.

                So, the moderators have so much to decide but things are getting better and better and this is the normal way.

                  I think my void bet is not fair because my pick was a solid one and you cannot do that to me, only because I won. Maybe you must be more precise and tell everybody how you describe a pick too short or how much is enough for you. I think it's very hard to say exactly. I hope you will change your decision because this is just my third pick, so a little help will be good for me.

                  Thank you for your time and I'm waiting an answer.

                  This is not fair. For today for example Srichaphan - Karlovic pick is not better than mine. And nobody void that bet. And every day there are such picks. And when I now precisely that a team is better than the other and the statistics are good, is it not enough ? I hope this is a serious competition and the error will be corrected.

                    Dante.... this is your POD :

                    Pick #1
                    Volleyball - Champions League (men)
                    HotVolleys Vienna v Evivo Duren
                    Pick : 1
                    Odd: 1.5 Gamebookers

                    Great moments for a small team from Vienna. Two nice wins against Sisley Treviso and Cannes, and now home advantage and big chances for a win in front of own crowd. Away team is not in good shape and hasn't the force to win now this game. Big clash, but only a winner: HotVolleys Vienna. They can win easily this game.
                    5 LINES writing what's your pick, who's playing, odds and bookmaker

                    and 4 lines analysis !!!

                    And you're complaining ???????


                    I understand why you made your mistake. You're still a rookie here, and mistakes happen. All of us made similar mistakes on POD when we started here. But most of us read the rules after our picks were voided and we've seen that we were really wrong and weren't complaining !!!

                    Good luck i nthe future. I wish you to win the POD some day....and please read the rules !!!!

                        I think that it has to be allowed to pick contradictory picks. I am thinking that because readers can deside what bet to take. They will read the explenations and also they can chose from the the member, who in their opinion is best (according to his previous tips)

                        Also someone mentioned that if it is not alowed, than pick which has been sent first will be only pick and than the readers can be misleaded.

                        Off topic: I had 0/4 so far. This never happened to me. Next time when I write some preview, pick the opposite, for your own sake

                          Little tip about this :

                          Always think as you're 0/0, and try to forget your bad run.
                          This summer i had 1/18 on POD (3/20 total, i started with 2/2). I was even thinking should i continue posting here, but since then i made some great picks and results, and i'm even leading Champions race now 8) .

                          Don't worry at all.
                          I promise i will follow your next pick as you'll suggest it, not the opposite :P
                          Maybe i'll make things turn around for you.....hehe

                          Good luck Zozo !

                              You should know that i voided your pick from 10th of January because you used bookie Betpoint, and it's not allowed bookie for POD.

                              I missed it when i was updating the standings, but thanx to one of the competitors, the mistake is fixed !!!

                              Sorry, but rules are rules !

                                And I hope u followed my today pick, because I finally won

                                Edit: And now I see that pick is void I think that is unfair to the others (not me, I am way at the bottom) to void picks just for that. Yes I know about sponsorship deals, but still I think it is unfair.
