Rouleur Derby Report No. 53

Thursday, March 15, 2012

In this Rouleur Derby Report:

1. Milan-San Remo Madness



That extra buzz among sports fans in your office today is surely attributable to just one thing: Anticipation of Saturday's Milan-San Remo. There can be no other explanation.

This is our first Monument of the year, which is is significant for two reasons:

A. All propositions count toward the Spring Classics contest, currently led by BarTapeandBidons with a 150% ROI;

B. Picking the winner brings a 25% monument bonus. A bet that would otherwise return 100 points will instead return 125 points. (Note: This bonus does not count toward the contest standings.)


Saturday also brings our first "show" proposition. A refresher: Each rider pays out for a 1st, 2nd or 3rd finish. These odds run tighter than their respective "win" payouts, but it's possible for players to win more than once by putting points on more than one winning rider.


There's also an array of goofy side bets.

Will Mark Cavendish win?

Who will crest the Poggio first?

Will FDJ-BigMat place ahead of Garmin-Barracuda?

Have fun, play well, tell a friend,
