ATS Network HOUSE RULES:
Lines are posted in the member's admin area under "make picks" page, and you can make picks up until the time a game starts. ATSCappers offers several contests, and you should consult the specific contest main page for more information. Some general things to note about our odds and contests: You can pick one team and one total per game. Once a pick is selected and submitted it is final and cannot be changed.
You can vary the amount of your wager on the line or total between 1 UNIT and 5 Units. ATS BUCKS and Units are not real money; they are just a way to grade the handicapping performance of all contestants.
For basketball and football games (sides and totals), the standard odds are to risk 110 units to win 100 units.
For MLB and NHL games, ATS uses the money line. In other words, you pick the winner of the game using the odds posted. For instance, if you pick a team to win with -140 odds, you are risking 140 units to win 100. If you pick a team to win with +140 odds, you are risking 100 units to win 140.
The odds on totals are the same as side wagers, risk 110 units to win 100. Some NHL and MLB games also which have an "o" or "u" at the end of the number shown. The "o" or "u" suffix means either the over or under is "favored" in the game. In those cases, you wager 130 to win 100 on the favored total, or 100 to win 110 on dog total.
You are limited to one user name when playing league contests. If a person is entering picks using more than one user name, that person is deemed not eligible to win any prizes.
No transfer, assignment or substitution of a prize, except ATS Network does reserve the right to substitute prize for an item of equal or greater value in the event an advertised prize is unavailable. All federal, state, provincial and local laws and regulations apply. Entrants agree to be bound by the terms of these Official Rules and by the decisions of Sponsor, which are final and binding on all matters pertaining to all contest.
