Super Bowl Pool Question

Recommended Posts

For Super Bowl XXXIX, we have New England and Philadelphia. Our first block of squares will be for the quarterbacks, Tom Brady of the Patriots and the Eagles' Donovan McNabb. This pool is based on the length of any TD pass or run by the QBs. For example, you might buy a square that places you at "McNabb 4, Brady 8." So, if Donovan McNabb throws a 24-yard TD pass, you just cashed in. If the pool is worth, say, $100... make each TD worth $10 until the $100 is exhausted. Or, you can award only one score per quarter - the first score of each quarter counts - with the fourth quarter being worth $40 (or $20 and save the last $20 in case there is overtime).

 

Can someone please explain how you would set this up? I think the thing that is tripping me up is wouldn't you have multiple squares with 'McNabb 4'? Or am I just missing the point? :D

It would be setup exactly the same way as a traditional pool except you substitute McNabb and Brady in in place of the Eagles and Pats.  Then the payout is based on the length of a TD rather than the score.  Does this make more sense?

So my point is that if you do it this way and McNabb runs it in from 4 yards out that would mean the 10 squares under 'McNabb 4/Brady 0-9' would win. Wouldn't it?

That's the way it looks to me. It seems to be very confusing and there is no set # of TD's either.

You're right......I want a refund for this horrible advise! :D

No really, I like the idea, it just needs more refining.
