Fantasy Football Offers Gamblers a Unique Kind of Fun


If you are a gambler, and you enjoy sports, chances are you've bet on football at some time in your life. If you love football, and you have never played fantasy football, you'll want to check into this fun and unique way to gamble on your favorite sport that doesn't involve a bookie.

The popularity of fantasy football has exploded in the past five years. Over 15 million Americans play this amazing game today. Newsstands are littered with magazines about the game, and if you search "fantasy football" on the Internet, hundreds of pages will pop up, with thousands of web sites, dedicated to providing information on how to play and statistics that will arm you with the tools for success.

The fun really begins, though, when you join a league, and you play against others week to week. Now, to get your gambling fix, you can play a variety of ways. First, most leagues have an entry fee to cover running the league (a few parties are always in order) and to create a prize fund. There is one Internet league called the Fantasy Football World Series that offers the winner $250,000. But you don't need the Internet to feed your hunger for football or gambling.

Just find ten or eleven other gamblers, start your own league, and toss in fifty to one hundred dollars toward the prize fund. Voila, you've got $500 to $1,000 dollars to compete for. Now, if this isn't enough, simply add a weekly pool into the mix. Get others in the league to throw in an extra ten to twenty dollars, and give the money to the team that scores the most points each week. If you're creative, you can come up with many ways to bet on your fantasy football team.

Now, if you're a real gambler, imagine paying one million dollars to join a fantasy football league. Your league has 16 teams, and it has added to the prize fund, through some investments over a ten-year span. Your league commissioner tells you that this season you are playing for a winner-take-all, lottery-sized prize of $30 million. All you have to do is select the best players in the NFL and win your fantasy football league. Are you trying to figure out the best way to increase your team's advantage? Are dollar signs dancing through your head? What might someone, desperate to win, do to assure himself victory each week?

Want to find out how millionaire gamblers play fantasy football? Read The League -- the only work of fiction every published about fantasy football. Learn more today at www.sportsnovels.com. Then, quench your own gambling thirst by joining a fantasy football league of your own. Unlike the members of The League, you don't have to play for millions to have fun.

Mark Barnes is the author of the new novel, The League, the first work of fiction, based on fantasy football. Learn more about this suspense thriller and Mark's other work at http://www.sportsnovels.com
