PrizePicks is available to residents 18+ in AK, AR, CA, CO, DC, FL, GA, IL, KS, KY, MI, MN, NE, NM, NC, ND, OK, OR, RI, SC, SD, TX, UT, VT, VA, WI, WY. 19+ in AL. 21+ in AZ, MA.

Fantasy Contests vs. Real Money Sports Betting

Fantasy contest websites like PrizePicks offer the opportunity to win cash prizes with a nominal risk.

Sports betting offers the potential for much higher payouts, some with a nominal risk as well.  The parlay model as well as totals (Over/Under) betting options tend to have very generous payout odds, though the chances of hitting are that much less. 

Unlike PrizePicks, you can place single outcome bets with the sportsbooks.

The PrizePicks model is fairly straightforward.  You will choose anywhere from two to six player statistics.  And just like sports betting, the more you pick, the higher the payout.  Your chances of success, however, do diminish.

The two types of plays are as follows: Flex Plays and Power Plays.

With Flex Plays, one or two of your picks can lose and you can still get paid out. For example, 6/6 on a 6-Pick Flex Play pays out 25X. But you still double your money if you go 5/6, and you’ll get nearly half of your entry fee back for going 4/6.

With Power Players, all the picks must be correct.

With a site like BetOnline, payout odds are offered on particular players whether they will score a particular number or more than that number.  Payouts can be in the hundreds on just a $10 wager.

Alabama's Hot March Madness Tournament Run

Alabama was one of the four top seeds in this year's tournament.  They had the second shortest odds of winning it all after the Houston Cougars coming into this tournament.

The Tide were expected to go deep in this year's March Madness, and they hadn't disappointed. 

They passed their first test, winning 96-75 against Texas A&M-CC and followed that up with a 73-51 win against Maryland.   They were set to face off against SDSU in the Sweet 16 but lost to a team that made it into the championship.
