A few of you expressed interest in casting avatar bets regarding some of the upcoming NFL games. I think it's retarded to make claims like "The Vikings will probably beat the Lions." Lol - No kidding! Here is the line-up for upcoming games; I think a few of them are obvious bets, whereas some require more of a risk.

Lions @ Vikings
Bucs @ Dolphins
Bills @ Titans
Saints @ Rams
Jaguars @ Jets
Broncos @ Red Skins
Bengals @ Steelers
Falcons @ Panthers
Chiefs @ Raiders
Cowboys @ Packers
Sea Hawks @ Cardinals
Eagles @ Chargers
Patriots @ Colts
Ravens @ Browns

I think the games up for betting discussion should be the ones I've bolded. I've italicized some other options which might prove to be good games; those too should be up for betting discussion. Betting on any of the other games is allowed, but kind of a cop-out. Let's see who has the cojones to bet on some of the high-lighted games :D

As far as my own personal betting goes, I might be down to take the Steelers over the Bengals, Eagles over the Chargers and the Cowboys over the Packers. Any takers? Thoughts? I'll make a final decision asap if anyone is down to take those.

Interesting! I'm rooting for the Colts too. I hate the Pats.

Lol, but this isn't an advanced betting thing... I think we're limiting it to team winners at this point; I don't think a lot of people on DDO follow football enough to make these types of bets. I might be willing to do one in the future though.

I'll take all of these lol...?

Well, I think the Cowboys could beat the Packers.

I'm not sure if you could make 2 bets per week, because what if you lose 2? Say you lose one to me and one to wonderwoman -- would we split up the avatar time? Maybe we should make each bet worth 3 days (or each individual person could make separate bets) so you could split it up.

I'd be willing to take 3 day bets regarding all of those games.

I tthink you would have to have one person decide your avvie for one week, then the other person has to decide the next.

Sure, I think a 3 day avatar bet would be good.

First come first serve so...

If I lose against you, Lwerd, you get the first 3 days.

If I lose against Ournames, he gets the next 3 days.

Obviously if I win against Lwerd, Ournames gets the first 3 days instead.

And so forth.

How does that sound?

Since people are betting on more than 1 game, I suppose that each bet should be worth a certain amount of time. For instance, if Mimoza loss to me (the Steelers beat the Bengals) then she can concede to my avatar for 3 days. If she loses to ournamestoolong (I suspect she will :P) then she can take his avatar for 3 days. I'll remove myself from the Colts/Pats running and stick to my bet regarding the Steelers over Bengals for now. I just might take the Cowboys over Packers one too if nobody else does soon... Anyway, ournamestoolong, do you agree to a 3 day avatar bet?

If both of you win, it's 3 days a piece, but if you only win - or if L only wins - you get the entire week : )

Hmm... Alright. So it's actually in my interest to take 2 bets then lol. Does this mean that you max out at 2 though? Otherwise you'd need 9 days, huh? If someone else wants to come along and bet that the Packers will beat the Cowboys (I don't think they will) then they can challenge me to that... I may or may not take it. I might just wanna make the 1 bet this week :)

Really, the only one that is huge is, Patriots @ Colts.
In which the pats should win.

Colts are hurting to much in the backfield and are starting rookies on def. B/c of injuries. That being said. I hope the colts win. But the pats have the extreme upper hand.
