WinTheTrophy User Destroys Sports Betting Record
WinTheTrophy user sets new single-week sports betting record.
Beaverton, Oregon (PRUnderground) September 14th, 2010
A little bit of luck and a lot of skill combined to make Tim L. of Philadelphia a record winner in the first full week of NCAA Football on WinTheTrophy™, a free and legal sports betting competition.
Using a strategy that included betting teams ranked in the Top 25, Tim turned 1,000 virtual dollars into 36,126, destroying the old one-week record of 18,511 set last December.
“The reason I was able to pull this off,” said Tim, “was a little luck and the fact that the top teams always schedule an easy team or two the first couple of weeks in the season. I also wasn’t on the top-10 leaderboard for the week so I flew in under the radar to stun the very savvy bettors that play WinTheTrophy.”
Every week, users like Tim receive 1,000 units of fake cash called “chips” to wager on all major U.S. sports using real sportsbook odds. Over the course of seven days, starting on Monday and ending on Sunday, users jockey to out-bet each other for the most chips and virtual trophies. Users who win the most-coveted trophies earn respect from the site’s community of sports pick’em fanatics.
Tim’s biggest winner during his record-setting week was an 8-game parlay that paid out 17,612 chips. “I looked at the Top 25 ranked teams and bet heavily on the moneyline where the pairings were rated even,” said Tim. “The strategy worked, and I came out on top.”
Tim competes against other bettors under the screen name jacktjl.
