OSGA Thanksgiving Holiday Football Pick ‘Em
The Thanksgiving holiday is upon us and that means plenty of good food, a visit with cousin Mel and a large helping of football . . . all weekend. That is why we are offering the annual OSGA Thanksgiving Holiday Football Pick ‘Em, sponsored by Elite-rated BetPhoenix.
This is the fifth year the OSGA has run some type of contest over the Thanksgiving weekend and this year due the huge demand for more Free contests, everyone is being offered the opportunity to play.
The contest is FREE to enter for all and this year OSGA members can win DOUBLE CASH PRIZES!
Contestants pick games each day during the ENTIRE holiday weekend. Players pick all the games available each day – 24 hand-picked College and Pro Football games. To make it really interesting players must assign point values for their best picks (pick 24 points for the best pick down to 1 point for the weakest). The player with the most total points wins the grand prize – $200 Cash from OSGA. The runner up will get $100 cash and Free Bets (with no required deposit) are being offered by contest sponsor BetPhoenix.
ALL PLAYERS who are active OSGA Members in good standing will get DOUBLE CASH PRIZES.
Get your entries for Thanksgiving football in by 12:30 PM ET on Thursday at Contest Central!
After weeks of players battling it out and grinding for every win, the OSGA football contests for 2014 are beginning to take shape.
The 2014 OSGA Progressive Pick ‘Em winner for Week 11 was ‘JROYJR’ who hit just 10 games to win the weekly prize of a $100 Free Play at industry leader BetOnline. ‘JROYJR’ has been on a roll this season as he hit the contest in Week 6 with 12 wins. However, he sits at 20th place overall in the season-long portion of the contest. The season prize is still up for grabs though ‘kenny bigg’ and ‘stormy1114′ have now hit triple digits in total wins. The Progressive part of the contest was hit two weeks ago by ‘Ghostzapper’, so the prize pool is sitting at $200 cash for this week if a player gets all 14 games on the board correct.
The 2014 OSGA College Football Pick ‘em is the tougher of our two free football contests. This past week saw ‘justlikestealing’ capture the weekly prize of a giant $250 free play at SpottsBettingOnline. This contest is so tough that we have not had a repeat winner and ‘justlikestealing’ became the second player this season to hit the contest via the “autopick’ function in the contest software.
The OSGA College Football Pick ‘em is set up to allow players to miss two weeks of the contest and still have a shot at the final season prize. This is because the system will autopick for players when they miss a week. The software will do this two times. Players can peruse the standings looking for a small [A] next to selections where the autopick was employed.
There are just three weeks left in the Free College Football contest, and ‘tigersfan’ has a sizeable lead over the rest of the field with 361 total spoints accumulated. The next closest players are in the 330s.
Last night saw two repeat winners in the Members-only Thursday Night NFL Football Squares contest. H8H8rs cashed for the second week in a row, this time with the first half score and ‘Jaws37′ hit the final game score.
OSGA visitors are urged to keep their eyes firmly on Contest Central starting on Monday as we will release our annual Thanksgiving Weekend Football contests, where players can pick from games across all four days of the holiday weekend. This contest will have a sports betting prize and a cash prize. Prizes will be elevated for OSGA Members.
Good Luck to everyone this week in the OSGA contests and with all of your wagers.
It took 10 weeks and a bunch of NFL favorites winning on a bye-week, but a player finally hit the Progressive Prize in the 2014 OSGA Progressive Pick ‘Em. Congratulations to ‘Ghostzapper’ who correctly picked all 12 games on the board over the weekend, cashing in on the Progressive Prize of $1000.
The OSGA Progressive Pick ‘Em is again the featured Free NFL contest on the website with over 100 participants and thousands in cash and prizes up for grabs. Each week players pick all of the NFL games on the board straight up, with no point spread. There have been several weeks this season where players like ‘mrfootball’ and ‘gseibel’ have hit all but one game and this week saw six other players with just one loss. But ‘Ghostzapper’ had the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night and like the Eagles, he won big.
“Ghostzapper has played the OSGA contests for many years and probably has had to pick thousands of games to get this win. We are happy to see a long-time participant cash in,” said Jim Quinn, President of OSGA. ‘Ghostzapper’ will be getting a $1000 check courtesy of OSGA for his outstanding effort.
The Progressive Pool starts again this week and will continue to grow until the end of the season. The Progressive prize has only been hit twice in the same season, back in 2012, so we expect the pot to grow for the next 7 weeks. If no one manages to get all the winners on the board picked correctly, the remaining $700 will be divided up between places one through five.
Head to OSGA Contest Central today and get your picks in for Week 11.
Happy Halloween to all OSGA fans, friends and members!
All contests are rolling along and today will mark the end of the second month of the Members-only BEAT THE BOOK Contest. Last night two members cashed in on the NFL Thursday Night Squares contest, based on the halftime and final score for the Saints-Panthers game. ‘Terrence’ cashed the first half with Saints 4 (14) and Panthers 0 (0). ‘BobbyD’ got lucky for the second week in a row as he again cashed the final game score with Saints 8 (28) and Panthers 0 (10). This is great news for members who have not cashed previously in the Members contests. ‘BobbyD’ has played them all for over two years without winning a dime. But, his luck changed and he has now cashed for $200 in the last two weeks on the squares alone.
‘Dawk20′ has amassed a huge bankroll in the Members-only BEAT THE BOOK Contest. However, once the first month ended, the remaining month’s prize winners are based in the increase of the bankroll percentage from one month to the next. Contestants must play each week to qualify for the monthly prize. Right now on the last day of the month, ‘Dawk20′ has increased his bankroll an impressive 29.64%. However, this is not tops for the month as ‘BobbyD’ increased his over 40%, but unfortunately he did not make any picks in the last two weeks and thus is not eligible for the prize. It looks like the only player who can take down ‘Dawk20′ is ‘JROYJR’, who can win the month of October if he can cash $1000 in bets tonight and grab the giant $250 free bet from Elite-rated GTBets!
Halfway through the season and the two free Pick ‘em contests are in full swing. The 2014 OSGA Pro Football Progressive Pick ‘Em has not yet been hit and this week the progressive prize for picking all games correctly jumps to $900 cash! Last week ‘mrfootball’ (great name for a contest player) had just one loss. After going 13-0 on Sunday, he had the wrong side on Monday Night taking the Cowboys, who cost him $800. ‘Mrfootball’ is still eligible for the $100 Free Play from Industry-giant BetOnline.
Finally, the 2014 OSGA College Football Pick ‘Em has expanded to include more game for players to choose from. This is a favorite amongst players as this is more of a gamblers contest, where games are picked against the spread and given confidence points. After 8 weeks, the leaderboard is still up in the air with 8 different winners so far and less than 40 points separating places 1 from 13 for the season cash prize. After 80 picks just one point separates ‘phil’ and ‘tigersfan’, yet neither player has cashed in on the weekly prize of a $250 free play from SportsBettingOnline.
Good Luck this weekend to everyone with your contest picks, wagers and Halloween treats.
This year’s two Free Football Contests are rolling along and finally after two weeks we get to hand out some prizes to Members for winning Squares picks.
The 2014 OSGA College Football Pick ‘Em has been really interesting as each week has had a different winner and the overall season-long points winner so far, Phil, has not yet cashed a single week. All of these players have been collecting big-time too, as the weekly prize is a huge $250 Free Play form Elite-rated SportsbettingOnline. Last week saw rickstew claim first prize with 8 wins and 50 points, beating out three other players with the same win total. We’ve expanded the contest to include more game and this weekend’s NCAA football action starts tonight.
After a problem with the Progressive Pick ‘Em, all has been corrected and for the second week this year we have a tie for first place. “ddsmj” and “Hitmen44” both had 11 wins, the Steelers on Monday night and both were exactly 10 points off of the final total score!! They tied for every facet of the weekly contest and thus will each get a shot at collecting the winning $100 Free Play from industry giant BetOnline. The 2014 OSGA Progressive Pick ‘Em is ready to go for selections now, right up until game time on Sunday.
Two weeks ago, no Member picked any of the correct squares in the Thursday night NFL game between the Colts and Texans. In Week 7 there were a few empty squares at kickoff and again the scores for the Jets-Patriots game fell on unfilled squares. We want to ensure that every member gets all they can from OSGA Membership so we rolled over the prize money from these two weeks. This week’s matchup between the Chargers and the Broncos finally saw winners for both the half and full game. Due to the triple prize value, “ZubZub” again cashed, but this time with the halftime score for $75. First-time-ever winner “BobbyD” grabbed the full game score with Denver 5 (35) and San Diego 1 (21). Because of the prize money rollover, “BobbyD” is entitled to a whopping $150 VISA gift card courtesy of OSGA!

The annual OSGA Progressive Pick ‘Em is in full gear with over 100 players and with just five weeks in the books, it is still anybody’s game. gseibel had an impressive 13 wins last week to claim the free bet at BetOnline. But with one more win he would have claimed the Progressive Prize! The cash is still on the table and this week the Progressive Prize runs up to $600 for anyone who can sweep the board.
The 2014 OSGA College Football Pick ‘Em again saw a tie. elle belly had 43 points and tied for the best last week with ddsmj, but elle belly had one pick push, yielding a better win percentage, which is the second tie-breaker for the weekly contest. elle belly is eligible for $250 in betting money from Elite-rated SportsBettingOnline.
And last week we saw Dawk20 pick up his massive $250 free bet from GTBets for crushing the BEAT THE BOOK Contest in September. He ran 100 in virtual betting money up to over 20K!! The contest standings are monthly so it is once again anybody’s game. Members can pick games throughout the week in all sports!! Become a member to BEAT THE BOOK today, click here.
