Thumbs up The Official Sports Betting / Predictions Thread



Do you follow sports? Do you know your shit? Then this is the place for you! Whatever your passion, be
it Football, Basketball, Baseball, Soccer, MMA, Boxing, Tennis, Golf, this is the place to prove you know
what the fuck you're talking about!


Post an event and your prediction before the opening bell. I will keep a running tally of each member's
prediction results in this main post, as well as an updated list of upcoming events. I'll post the events
about which I care and want to make predictions. Post yours and I'll add them to the main post. We
will all be ranked by how accurate we are. 1 correct prediction = 1 point. Good luck!


List the date of the event along with your prediction! Please do your due diligence
and alert me to the result once your event has ended, so that I can update your tally.


You must make 10 predictions to join the PROFESSIONAL LEAGUE rankings. This is to assure that one-off wankers don't claim
the crown with a perfect [1 / 1 = 100%] record and never come back. Those with 0 - 9 predictions will be in the AMATEUR LEAGUE.
THE OCCULTHAWK CHALLENGE is dedicated to mini-games. The most points get you the #1 spot. Confidence points are listed
in RED. Each correct prediction also counts toward your total in the other leagues.

Great idea. Thread has been a long time coming.

Can I include my pre season Premier League predictions in this? The top four and bottom three reads almost exactly as the table now is. Quite pleased with it tbh.

I'm taking the Chiefs over the Seahawks on the 24th and Chiefs over the Raiders on the 30th.

At UFC 232, I'm picking Jon Jones > Alexander Gustafsson, Cyborg > Amanda Nunes, Carlos Condit > Michael Chiesa, Alexander Volkanovski > Chad Mendes, Walt Harris > Andrei Arlovski, Megan Anderson > Cat Zingano, Ryan Hall > BJ Penn, Uriah Hall > Bevon Lewis.

^the chiefs v seahawks is gonna be a great game. Naturally I'm rooting for my state team but I've heard the chiefs are a force to be reckoned with this season so I'll be curious to see the outcome. The Hawk's have some potential this season tho.
