Superbowl Bif - 49ers or Ravens?

Discussion in 'Beer It Forward' started by marine1975, Jan 22, 2013.

  1. Pretty simple bif if we can get an even amount of BA's sign up as picking the 49ers to win the Super Bowl straight up and the Ravens winning straight up.

    Example: If 10 people pick the 49ers to win and they lose they send a box to 1 of the 10 winning BA's that picked the Ravens to win.

    Picks will straight up, no points spreads.

    The box should include a minimum of $40 retail of beer along with a beer related swag piece be it glassware, hat or a t-shirt.

    After the Superbowl is over I will put all the BA's that picked the winning team in a drawing to determine the order they can then themselves select which losing BA they want to have them send their box.

    The Super Bowl is February, 3rd all losers should be able to send out their boxes to be recieved by the winners no later than February 28th.

    I think a goal of 10 for the 49ers and 10 for the Ravens although if we can continue to have an even amount of teams that wanna join we can go with more.

    If you would like to join in please have previous trade or bif experience, post your team pick in this thread and BM me your shipping information, to include full name, address, phone, email.

    Also feel free to contact me with any questions.

    Cheers,

    OP, I would have been truly impressed if you said "no point spreads" and took the Ravens. Alas, I'm not impressed. :p
     
  10. While I do think it will be a close game I think the niners will win! I must say I'm not a fan of either team just hope it's a good game! Didn't think it would be too fair to have people sign up based on the spread and then Vegas change it within the next two weeks!
     
  11. 49ers
    Kaepernick is unstoppable he the man superbowl MVP
    just need to know who will be shipping me a box lol
     
  12. No way. If the 49ers win it will be thanks to their RB's and defense, and to a lesser degree Kaepernick not making too many mistakes. He is efficient but doesn't put up the big numbers. I think his inexperience will catch up with him in the big game and the difference will be a pick 6 in a (hopefully) close game.

    Niners.............younger brother beats up on older brother
     
  14. Not taking any more 49er picks at this time. Anyone who wants to pick the Ravens feel free to join in! If we get back to an equel number of 49er and Raven picks I will probley open it back up for a few more to join. Ideally I would like 10-12 for each team but we will roll with what we get. If we can't get a equal number of BA's picking the Raven's I will have to cut a few 49er BA's to make it even. If cuts were to happen it would be based on the order you joined up in the thread or by beer mail sent. We still got almost two weeks before the big game so I think we will have no problem evening things up. While the spread is not a factor as we will be going straight up, I do think the spread will get a little closer towards game time!

    The spread isn't going to change that much. Good luck getting enough Raven's backers.
     
  18. You don't think your team can win? Come on jump in!

    1. Not my team
    2. Point spreads exist for a reason. It's fine to ignore them if you wish, just don't be surprised if you don't have too many takers for the underdogs.

    Agreed, would be on this if I could get Ravens at +3.5.
     
  21. just let it go 2/1 if/when the niners go down we get two boxes... each for having the balls/blind faith to go with the ravens
     
  22. Maybe there are some individual wagers available with spreads involved.
     
  23. You could treat it as a moneyline with the Niners as a 3.5 pt favorite. Using $40 as the baseline, Niner fans would owe 1.35 x $40 = $54.

    Niner Fans ship $54 if they lose
    Ravens fans ship $40 if they lose.
