The 5Dimes Betting Contest is completely free of charge and available to all 5Dimes Group players.

The Betting Contest has two objectives, one is to build a streak of consecutive winning picks on specific events to collect a Betting Streak prize when reaching a paying position; and the other is to achieve the highest scoring Betting Streak on the monthly Leader board to collect the Betting Streak Contest Monthly Prize.

Betting Streak prizes are applied to eligible accounts for streaks of 5, 10, 15 and 25 consecutive winning picks.

Build the longest winning streak of the month and win the Betting Contest Monthly Prize.

Take your winning streak to the extreme with 25 consecutive correct selections and win a $5000 CASH prize!

Please read thoroughly the rules below before you start playing.


How to Play
Login to your sports account and click on Betting Contest from the left side menu.

Create a screen name and proceed to click on “Create”.

To begin with, CHECK YOUR PRIZE ELIGIBILITY!  In order to receive a Betting Streak Prize, you must have Sportsbook activity within 24 hours of posting the first winning selection of your Betting Streak (more info on Betting Contest Terms and Conditions).

Each day, you must choose one pick you believe will win from the list offered on the “Today’s Pick” tab.

Click on the “Today’s Pick” tab to see the games or events available for the day.  Choose one pick out of the options available and go through the confirmation process.

The lines of the events are updated throughout the day according to the line changes registered for that line on the Sportsbook Main.

If your selection is a winner, you will receive one point towards your streak total score.  If you fail to make a pick within 7 days of your previous winning selection, your streak will reset to zero.

Once your Betting Streak reaches a paying position, you will be awarded a prize according the milestone achieved.


Betting Contest Prizes
The Betting Streak Prize structure currently in place goes as follows:

Betting Streaks of 5 wins will be awarded a $50 Valued Item.*
Betting Streaks of 10 wins will be awarded a $500 Valued Item.
Betting Streaks of 15 wins will be awarded a $2000 Valued Item.
Betting Streaks of 25 wins will be credited $5000 Cash Reward.
Betting Contest Winner of the month will be credited a $1000 Free-Play.

*Check the Betting Contest Terms and Conditions for restrictions on this prize.

The Betting Streak Contest winner of the month will be determined by the player with the most consecutive winning selections at the end of a calendar month.

Players will be sent an email with the list of prizes available to choose from.  The email must be replied stating the desired item and shipping details as well as account number and password.

Customers are entitled to exchange the Merchandise Prize for a Free-Play, available to use in Sportsbook Main, for the same value as the item.  So for the case of a 5 wins Betting Streak, if choosing to exchange the prize, a $50 Free-Play would be added to the Sportsbook Main account of the winner.

Eligible accounts will have the corresponding prizes applied within 24 hours of grading the daily picks with no rollover or wagering requirements attached.

Merchandise prizes are available for US customers ONLY.  Non US customers will be credited a Free-Play for the amount corresponding to the item they won.

For the Betting Contest Monthly Leaderboard, only the first place will have the prize applied. In the case of a TIE for the first place between one or more players, the amount of the prize will be divided in equal parts amongst the eligible winners.


Betting Contest Terms and Conditions
In order to receive a Betting Contest Prize, you must have Sportsbook activity within 24 hours of placing the first winning selection of your Betting Streak.

“Sportsbook activity” refers to at least one real money wager being posted no more than 24 hours before or after entering the first winning pick of your Betting Streak.  The first winning selection of every new Betting Streak has the 24 hour rule from the post time of the pick.  Qualifying real money wagers can be placed in Sportsbook Main or Live Betting Extra.

IMPORTANT! As of September 1st, 2014, the following rule for the application of the 5 Wins Betting Streak Prize significantly changed to the following:  Betting Streaks of 5 wins will be awarded a $50 valued item prize ONLY IF the eligible account has a real money wager of $50 or more posted within 24 hours of starting the winning streak.  Accounts not fulfilling this requirement will get applied a Free-Play for the amount of the highest real money wager posted within 24 hours of starting the winning streak and up to $49.99.  If the qualifying real money wager is between $0.50 and $4.99, a $5 Free-Play will be credited.

Accounts that do not post a real money wager within 24 hours of placing the first winning selection of the streak will be awarded a 5% of the prize amount for ONE WINNING STREAK ONLY.  Future winning streaks that do not fulfill the wagering requirements will not be eligible for further prizes.

All events available on the “Today’s Pick” tab are scheduled for the same day and will be graded after the last event is over.

Only one selection per account per day is allowed.  Once your match is graded, the following day you can make your next pick.  Confirmed picks may not be deleted nor edited.

Only picks made on the “Today’s Pick” tab qualify for the Betting Streak prizes and Betting Contest Leaderboard prizes.

To keep an active betting streak of winners, you must make a pick on a game or event played within 7 days of your previous winning selection or your Betting Streak score will be reset to zero.

All Sportsbook Rules apply for grading purposes.

If your selection is a winner, you will receive one point towards your streak score.

If your selection is a loser, your score will be reset to zero.

If your selection is postponed, suspended, cancelled or removed from the board for any reason, your selection will not count towards your Betting Streak score and you will need to make a new selection for a game played on a future date.  You will have 7 more days to add a new pick to your streak.

If the game you selected results in a tie or push, the event will be graded cancelled and your Betting Streak score will not change.  You will have 7 more days to add a new pick to your streak.

Players with Betting Streaks carrying over from one month to the next must have the most winning picks made during the ongoing calendar month in order to win the Betting Streak Contest prize of the month.  Only picks made within the same month will be considered towards the Betting Streak Contest monthly prize.

For the Betting Contest Monthly Leaderboard, only the first place will have the prize applied.  In the case of a TIE for the first place, the amount of the prize will be divided in equal parts amongst the eligible winners.

All General Rules and Policies apply to this contest.

The three biggest factors that should go in to football handicapping are trends, statistics and situations. Some people refer to it as fundamental handicapping while others call it technical handicapping but the bottom line is those three factors are always involved. There is no incorrect method of handicapping as it is essentially a matter of personal preference and many people will use the different factors to varying degrees. Here is a quick look at the three key football handicapping techniques.

Trend-Based Handicapping

Relying on trends to come up with picks can vary from one sport to another and shouldn’t be confused with systems. Some handicappers will place a lot of importance on trends while others will use them as a final aspect to review before placing a bet. The following are all examples of trends:

Team A has covered 4 straight games against division opponents as a home favorite.
Team B has covered 8 of the last 9 games versus Team C.
Team D is 6-1 against the spread as a double-digit favorite.
Team E is 1-7 when playing outdoors in December over the past two seasons.

Statistical Handicapping

The handicappers that place the biggest emphasis on statistics are number crunchers that make their selections based solely on the numbers and rely on countless statistics that are available for the general public. These statistics range from traditional numbers like points scored and points allowed to more advanced numbers like yards per carry and points per 100 yards. Statistical handicapping is the best way to break down how a team has performed up until that point but it’s also important to remember that those numbers are a clear indication of the past and not an exact predictor of future results.

Situational Handicapping

Situational handicapping is the most like systems betting in that the focus is on how teams have fared in particular situations. The difference between situational handicapping and trend handicapping is that we are interested in how the league performs in certain situations instead of focusing on just one team. The situational handicapping removes the personal bias that could complicate things while providing numbers that the bettor can use at his disposal depending on how they see fit. The following are all examples of situational handicapping:

Preseason Home Underdogs
College Football Ranked Underdogs
NFL Outdoor Favorites

The most important thing to remember about all three of these integral aspects to football handicapping is that the data is raw and at this disposal of whoever is using it. This means that while these numbers could help project the score of the game it’s unrealistic to expect them to predict an exact final. Instead, the point of these numbers is to get as close as possible to projecting how a game will play out based on the information available. Trends, statistics and situations can all be used to predict how a game will play out and if you are able to use all three areas of handicapping to your advantage you will find yourself winning a lot more often than not.
