Project Description:
Basically, we're looking for something similar to Line(dot)com, but to integrate with our VBulletin4 Forum. Users will log in via the VBulletin platform, and will be able to handicap sports games where all results for every game selected will be tracked. In each users profile there will be sidebar widgets with the users records for the sports they select, as well as an overall more detailed record on the profile in the main content. We want to eventually grow into something similar to Covers.com but just with a Forum, Member Blogs, Member Handicapping Tracking, and eventually a system that will allow us to hold contests using variations of the Handicapping tracking and system in place.

The lines, or odds, for each sports game will come from an online sportsbook such as 5Dimes(dot)com, where they'll update regularly on our site when 5Dimes updates their lines. I'm assuming this is done via an XML feed. We'd like the actual visual design to look more like http://contests.covers.com/sportscontests/champions-home.aspx?sportid=1 , rather than the design at Line(dot)com. This is going to be a forum with a handicapping monitor, so we'd like our forum member base to be able to pick these games for fun (1-5 Units per game)

The designer would likely have a background in sports, and sports betting, as this is what the site will be revolved around.

I suggest signing up at Line.com to get a feel for how the site works and what we're trying to accomplish here. We'd like what they have on that site, but with the visual look of Covers.com. That's basically exactly what we're going for. We also are open to using a different forum software if it's easier for the designer to build and integrate with the Handicapping Monitor.

I have no idea what the cost of this project would entail, so please feel free to add your input on why you've added such a price. Also, so I know this isn't a generalized response, please write your favorite sports team inside your bid.
