    Here's a little draft game that I've designed for our mutual amusement. I've set odds around players that the Patriots might draft in the top-50.

    - Everyone has an imaginary $100 to place against any proposition listed.
    - Post your reply: how do you split your money?
    - After the draft, I'll do the math, and announce the winner.

    The following bets win if the player is drafted by the Patriots anywhere in the top-50 selections of the draft:

    Pays 10 to 1
    Fletcher Cox
    Kendall Reyes
    Melvin Ingram
    Mark Barron

    Pays 15 to 1
    Nick Perry
    Harrison Smith
    Jerel Worthy
    Devon Still
    Brandon Thompson
    Chandler Jones
    Michael Brockers
    Shae McClellin

    Pays 20 to 1
    Courtney Upshaw
    Dre Kirkpatrick
    Kevin Zeitler
    Vinny Curry
    Jamell Flemming

    Pays 35 to 1
    Dontari Poe
    Quinton Coples
    Whitney Mercilus
    Andre Branch
    Stephon Gilmore

    Pays 50 to 1
    Brandon Boykin
    Amini Silatolu
    Jayron Hosley
    Alameda Ta'amu
    Peter Konz

    Pays 60 to 1
    Donta Hightower
    Janoris Jenkins

    Pays 70 to 1
    Coby Fleener
    Alshon Jeffery

    Pays 80 to 1
    Luke Keuchly
    David Decastro

    Pays 90 to 1
    Kendall Wright
    Kelechi Osemele

    Pays 100 to 1
    Reuben Randall
    Zach Brown

    Other bets
    The Patriots draft a player in the top-50 who is not listed, above. Pays 5 to 2
    The Patriots draft a DT in the top-50. Pays 3 to 2
    The Patriots draft a DE or OLB in the top-50. Pays 2 to 1

    Nice idea.

    As they say in my country, "in for a penny, in for a pound". I'm all in with this one:

    The Patriots draft a player on offense in the top-50. Pays 6 to 1

    $100 on this one.

    There should be a 100-1 for Pats drafting a OLB in the first.

    Haha. Never going to happen.

    1000-1 - Patsfans board will be unanimously happy with the draft.

    5000-1 - There will no Patriots trade on draft day.

    10,000-1 - Patriots will use their 2013 1st rounder to move up in this draft.

    Do you ever come back with any money?

    $20- The Patriots draft a player in the top-50 who is not listed, above.
    $20- The Patriots draft a DT in the top-50.
    $20- The Patriots draft a DE or OLB in the top-50.
    $20- The Patriots draft a DB in the top-50.
    $20- The Patriots draft a player on offense in the top-50.

    Me neither...

    Once in awhile I'll hit but I never make big enough bets to make it worth while. Just go out there with the boys, drink some beers, yell at the horses and have fun.
