Here are the rules:
The Beko Basketball Bundesliga (BBL) is the highest national basketball league in Germany. It consists of 18 teams. In the main round, these teams play each other twice, amounting to a total of 34 game days, each with 9 games. The best 8 teams qualify for the playoffs, but we will cover these when the time comes. The playoff winner is the German Basketball Champion. The worst two teams are relegated to the Pro A (second league) and are replaced for the next season by the best two teams from the Pro A. Games are played by standard FIBA rules (which are not NBA rules, my North American friends).
Your possible betting games are:
1. Bet on who wins a game (Winner Game)
A ticket costs 100 Tacos. The pot will be divided amongst those who have bet on the right winner. For example: A, B and C play for 100 Tacos each. The pot is 300 Tacos. A and B say "Team X will win", C says "Team Y will win". If Team X wins, A and B both win 150 Tacos. If Team Y wins, C wins 300 Tacos.
Jackpot: If no player has guessed the correct winner (i.e. all players bet on team A but team B wins), the pot from that game carries over into the Jackpot. A player can win the jackpot by correctly betting on all the winners of any given round.
2. Relegation Ticket (December 2014 only)
As explained above, the two teams with the lowest point score (points are awarded for winning games) will be relegated to the "2. Basketball Bundesliga Pro A".
For a mere 500 you can bet on which teams will have to leave the league this season! If you guess both teams correctly, you will win 1000 Tacos, if you guess one team correctly, you will win 750 Tacos. Each player may only buy one ticket and each ticket must name two teams.
Bets on this close at the end of December 31st 2014. (forum time)
