HURRY UP! TIME IS RUNNING OUT!

That lede is for the people coming across this post on Sunday morning. Everyone else can take their time a bit, since your team isn’t due until Sunday at 1 P.M. But if it’s currently Sunday at 11:30 A.M…. man, you gotta hurry.

Once again, Draft Kings is offering you a chance to bet on yourself and win big in another Millionaire League. You won’t have the Eagles to watch or care about, so why not throw a team together with a $27 deposit and try to bring home some BIG MONEY? All you have to do it pick your team using the given salary cap — team consists of one QB, two RBs, three WRs, and one TE, Flex and Defense — make your deposit, wait, and watch. The top 15,500 finishers bring home cash, and the first place winner gets $1,000,000 of the total $2,000,000 prize pool. And if it’s your first time playing, Draft Kings will give you a 100% bonus on your deposit up to $600.

It’s all really quite simple, and addictively fun. PICK YOUR TEAM, and then be sure to download the Draft Kings app, because you’re going to be obsessively checking it on Sunday. [Editor's note: May I recommend Red Zone and the Draft Kings app for you?]

PICK YOUR TEAM

Good luck, readers.

Week 7 Brings Draft Kings’ Next Millionaire League

win1Mil_1024x768_millioinaireMaker2 copy

It’s time for another Draft Kings Millionaire League, their third one of the season, but the first during a week when you don’t have any Eagles football to watch and get invested in. Add to that the fact that your fantasy team is probably so injury ridden that you can barely put a lineup together, and what is there to make you really care about the NFL this weekend? How about the chance at winning a ton of money.

As in past weeks, you’ll need to pick a team consisting of one QB, two RBs, three WRs, and one TE, Flex and Defense, with a deposit of just $27. That $27 enters your lineup into the running for a prize pool that consists of over $2,000,000 with a first place prize of $1,000,000. The rest of the details:

– Top 15,500 are paid.​
– Starts on Sunday, October, 19th at 1:00 EST.
– Salary Cap Style Drafting. $50,000 to select 9 spots. 8 players and 1 defense.
– Roster Format: 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 Flex, 1 Defense.
– First time depositors at DraftKings receive a 100% bonus up to $600

The whole process takes about five minutes, and you don’t have to actually pay your deposit before putting your team together. You’ve got until the 1 P.M. games start on Sunday to make your lineup and put your money down — which disqualifies Jets and Patriots players, no big deal — and try to win that big money. You can PICK YOUR TEAM right now and cross your fingers harder than you ever have before.

Jonathan Papelbon, who, like everything else from Mississippi, is terrible, was the guest picker on College GameDay today, and indeed, he looked and acted like a douche.

Honestly? I’m surprised he didn’t grab himself and pick “DEEZ NUTS” as the winner. Some Vines after the jump. Continue reading

We’ve told you before here how easy it is to enter into the Draft Kings Millionaire League. We’ve told you how simple it is and about the insane prizes you can win with just a small deposit.

That kid right there walked away from last week’s Millionaire League a whole lot richer, and all he did was pick a team — made up of one QB, two RBs, three WRs, and one TE, Flex and Defense — choosing players from Sunday’s and Monday’s games, and deposited $27 per lineup. And he wasn’t the only winner. His money came from a prize pool of over $2,000,000, where the top 15,500 lineups win money. The entry fee is only $27, and first time depositors at DraftKings receive a 100% bonus up to $600. They make it real easy and hassle free, so you can do all the stressing after you pick your team. And you don’t even have to deposit first to pick your lineup, so you can fiddle around with the whole thing commitment-free. Go ahead and PICK YOUR TEAM before the early games start on Sunday, and who knows, maybe we’ll be posting your Tweets next time.

Draft Kings’ Second Millionaire League of the Season is Coming This Weekend

win1Mil_1024x768_millioinaireMaker2 copy

The people at Draft Kings rolled out their first millionaire league of the season last week — and the tweet of the winner, a new millionaire, was just about perfect — and this week, they’re doing another. Just like last week’s challenge (and the non-millionaire ones before it), you can pick anyone from this week’s matchups, excluding Thursday night, and put your best lineup together under a set salary cap. You’ll pick one QB, two RBs, three WRs, and one TE, Flex and Defense, and with an entry of just $27, you can win your share of a gigantic prize pool:

– $2,200,000 prize pool.
– First place wins $1,000,000
– $27 entry fee.
– Top 15,500 are paid.​
– Starts on Sunday, October, 12th at 1:00 EST.
– Salary Cap Style Drafting. $50,000 to select 9 spots. 8 players and 1 defense.
– Roster Format: 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 Flex, 1 Defense.
– First time depositors at DraftKings receive a 100% bonus up to $600

For less than $30, you can put your best lineup together and take a chance at winning some very real, very big money. You can throw your team together in five minutes or take a few days to mull it over, but once 1 P.M. Sunday rolls around, it’s all up to the guys you picked. You can even pick multiple lineups if you want to up your chances. You just have to CREATE YOUR TEAM. You can get to picking your team (and second guessing yourself) right over here.

win1Mil_1024x768_millioinaireMaker copy

Draft Kings, who have already brought us a week one fantasy challenge worth some real money, are stepping it up big time with their first of four millionaire leagues for the year. Just like the previous challenge, you can pick anyone from week’s matchups — excluding Thursday night football — and put a team together under the set salary cap. You’ll pick one QB, two RBs, three WRs, and one TE, Flex and Defense. But the best part is with an entry of $27, you can win you share of a huge prize pool:

– $2,200,000 prize pool.
– First place wins $1,000,000
– $27 entry fee.
– Top 15,500 are paid.​
– Starts on Sunday, October, 5th at 1:00 EST.
– Salary Cap Style Drafting. $50,000 to select 9 spots. 8 players and 1 defense.
– Roster Format: 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 Flex, 1 Defense.
– First time depositors at DraftKings receive a 100% bonus up to $600

For under $30, you can take a real shot at winning some very serious money, and the whole thing takes less time than it probably took to read this post. You just have to CREATE YOUR TEAM. You can get to picking your team (and already get nervous about who you picked) right over here.

While Eagles Tickets Are More Expensive This Year, The Home Opener Is Cheapest In Four Years

From our friends at TiqIQ.

If there was one positive that resulted in the 12-20 Eagles record over the last two years of Andy Reid’s tenure, it was cheaper prices for Eagles Tickets. Over the last four years, the average price for Eagles tickets at the start of the season dropped from $242 in 2011 to $177 in 2012 and all the way down to $150 in 2012. With a new regime, prices are back up. With the majority of pundits picking the Eagles to repeat as NFC East champs, the average price across the Eagles home games is $220.

While it will cost more to see Nick Foles and crew pursue another NFC East title, for fans looking to get out to Lincoln Financial Field without breaking the bank, this is the weekend to do it. The opening game against the Jaguars is not only the cheapest game of the season, it’s also the cheapest opening game over the last four years…by a lot. Over the last three years, the average price to see the Eagles opening game has been $169, $204 and $261. That makes this years’ average price of $139 47% less expensive than the 2011 opener against the Giants, which was the most expensive. Right now, there are tickets under $80, and thanks to our partners at TiqIQ you can get tickets for even less. For the opening game, TiqIQ is offering a 10% discount on any ‘Seller Direct’ listings.  Just use the promo code TiqIQ10! for any tickets by clicking here.

Also, don’t forget that you can also sell tickets to any Eagles, Phillies or Flyers game using TiqIQ’s Seller Direct tool.   When you list tickets, TiqIQ tells you what the best prices are to sell your tickets to others fans. The best part is that it’s 100% free, and there are no service charges like there are on other sites out there.

Here are the Best Deals for Penn State Tickets This Season

From our friends at TiqIQ:

With an average price on the secondary market of $150, Penn State football tickets at Beaver Stadium hold the 10th spot in TiqIQ’s annual ranking of the 25 college football programs in the country after week one. The 10 spot puts PSU in a position amongst the most in-demand college football tickets in the nation. In 2011, before the program was engulfed in controversy, the average price for a ticket to see the Nittany Lions at Beaver stadium was $187, which was good for 7th in the nation. While Penn State isn’t eyeing the post-season this year, it may not be too far in the future behind the arm of true sophomore Christian Hackenberg. In his first start this season, Hackenberg threw for 454 yards and led Penn State to a hard fought win over UCF. While the secondary market is more active this year than any of the last three, the primary market also has availability. For those willing to commit to an entire season, they’ll be rewarded with an average ticket price of only $40 for each game. That ends up being about $15 cheaper than getting tickets to all the games through the secondary market.

9/6 vs Akron | Avg. Price: $90.76 | Get-in: $28

The lowest-priced home game on the Penn State schedule will also be the team’s opening game at Beaver Stadium against Akron on September 6. The average price for the game is currently $90.76 on the secondary market, 34.3% below the season average, and get-in price starts at $28. The two teams will meet for the first time since 2009, where the Nittany Lions took an easy 31-7 victory over the Zips at home.

9/20 vs UMass | Avg. Price: $98.15 | Get-in: $41

The second home game is also the second lowest-priced game of the season. The average price is $98.15 with a get-in price of $41. With a record of 1-11 last season UMass is another warm-up game, and it’s an opportunity to see Hackenberg put up some serious yeards. UMass has just two wins in the last two seasons, one of which came against Akron in 2012.

9/27 vs Northwestern | Avg. Price: $149.14 | Get-in: $75

Penn State will play Northwestern on September 27 and the game will be the second most expensive game at Beaver Stadium this season. The average price for Penn State vs Northwestern tickets is $149.14 on the secondary market, 7.8% above the season average, with a get-in price of $75. The teams haven’t met since 2012, where the Nittany Lions beat Wildcats 39-28 at Beaver Stadium.

10/25 vs Ohio State | Avg. Price: $250.95 | Get-in: $116

In what will be the most expensive home game at Beaver Stadium on the Penn State football schedule, the Nittany Lions welcome the Ohio State Buckeyes on October 25. The average price for Penn State vs Ohio State is $250.95 on the secondary market, 81.5% above the season average, with a get-in price of $116. Penn State suffered an embarrassing loss to the Buckeyes at Ohio Stadium last season, allowing 63 points and putting up just 14 of their own. The Nittany Lions will look to redeem themselves in October, though the team will have its hands full with the star-studded cast of Ohio State.

11/1 vs Maryland | Avg. Price: $132.37 | Get-in: $60

The Maryland Terrapins will visit Beaver Stadium on November 1 and that game has have an average secondary price of $132.37, while the get-in price starts at $60. The average price on the secondary market for the game is 4.2% below the season average. Maryland had a mediocre 2013 season, going just 7-6 and 3-5 in ACC games. The rich rivalry between both teams will be renewed for the first time since 1993 after Maryland joined the Big Ten Conference last month. Penn State is 35-1-1 in 37 matchups with Maryland.

11/15 vs Temple | Avg. Price: $100.71 | Get-in: $34

The Temple Owls travel to Beaver Stadium on November 15 for a game that will also have a below-average secondary market price of $100.71. The two PA teams will play each other for the first time since 2012, when Penn State took a 24-13 victory over Temple. The get-in price for the mid-November game is at just $34.

11/29 vs Michigan State | Avg. Price: $148.99 | Get-in: $54

In the final home game of the season for Penn State, they will welcome the Michigan State Spartans and will see the third highest-priced ticket average of the season behind the Ohio State and Northwestern matchups. The average price for Penn State vs Michigan State is $148.99 on the secondary market, 7.7% above the season average, with get-in price at $54. The Nittany Lions last played the Spartans in 2010 and lost 28-22. Last season, Michigan State went 13-1 and went a perfect 8-0 in Big Ten games, causing a significant rise in price for their visit to Beaver Stadium in late-November.
