Canis Hoopus Over Under Contest Extravaganza Results

Original post here.


I am happy to report that, based on the results, Canis Hoopus outsmarted Vegas, at least for this year. Of the seventeen entrants in the contest, 10 "won" more money than lost, and another four broke even. Of the $1700 bet, $1009.98 was wagered on winning picks. Even more impressively, of the thirteen readers who guessed on all 30 teams, all thirteen picked more lines correctly than incorrectly.

Your overall winner is pekovikosaurus, who wagered $99.94 on the 76ers to finish under 45.5 wins. Rosy02001 finished second, with $85 in correct bets, I finished third with $80 in correct bets (3 teams), Madison Dan finished fourth with $80 in correct bets (2 teams), and vjl110 finished fifth with $70 in correct bets (6 teams). If New Orleans had won one of their final five games, vjl110 would have gone a perfect 7 for 7 on his moneyed bets.

Of the users who picked all 30 teams, myself, vjl110, Rosy02001, and HumdingerTV tied with 20 correct picks while AK1984, Malastare, zebano, and Zena correctly predicted 19 outcomes. Overall, the hivemind correctly predicted 236 lines, incorrectly predicted 153 lines, and recorded one abstention. If one were to have taken the most common predictions for each team, that person would have predicted 19/30 lines correctly.

Thanks to everyone for playing, and if I messed up anyone's total, I apologize.
