  • 2019 College Pick'Em at William Hill thread (season-long)

    As I announced this morning on Twitter @ViewFromVegas, William Hill's' college-only contest opened this morning (July 1):

    In addition to those contests, the biggest #NCAA-only contest in Nevada opened today @WilliamHillUS; $500 per entry (maximum 4); 7 picks a week from 25 posted games for 10 weeks from Sept. 6-Nov. 9; 3-way tie last year for $32,750 apiece; full rules at williamhill.us


    As I've stated before, not too thrilled with only 25 games available each week (always seems to be a smaller conference game I love that's left off and even some under-the-radar games in major conferences) and also wish they'd continue it for 12 weeks through the great Thanksgiving Weekend schedule...but it is what it is. And it's the only NCAA-only option so we'll give it the ole college try

    Since it's not as big as the other contests (plus they don't post selections until after the weekend because there's no set entry time for selections except for (kickoff of first game selected), we'll just use this thread for the whole contest to track entries over the summer and then add weekly standings updates throughout the season.

    Looks like William Hill closed with 258 entries (at least that's how many the website had submitting Week 1 picks)...we'll get that final number and the first-place prize everyone's shooting for. In the meantime, here's the leaderboard after Week 1 with two players without aliases going 7-0 and 10 starting 6-1:

    3136 7 0 7 0
    3161 7 0 7 0

    3007 6 1 6 1 Deadmoney
    3015 6 1 6 1 3027 6 1 6 1
    3031 6 1 6 1 4 Melrose PL #1
    3078 6 1 6 1 Hawkins
    3108 6 1 6 1 Indy Des Moines
    3120 6 1 6 1
    3138 6 1 6 1 Royal Flush 71 #2
    3140 6 1 6 1 Lets Dance #2
    3162 6 1 6 1 Sabertooth Tiger #1

      Here's the standings after Week 2, with 3 tied for 1st place at 12-2 (K25QR, Deadmoney and an anonymous entry as they haven't added all the aliases into the system yet), 5 tied for 2nd place at 11-3. There are 36 tied for 9th place at 10-4, but I'm not going to list them all here

      3081 7 0 12 2 K25QR
      3007 6 1 12 2 Deadmoney
      3161 5 2 12 2

      3068 6 1 11 3 Winningangle

        3064 6 1 16 5 Oregon Tilt #1
