    Ok,
    I bet the spreads for $ and figured it might be fun to have a season see who knows thier football and odds the best. Here is how it goes(if it even does take off):
    I will list a lineup. I will try closer to mid to end of week since spreads change based on placed bets. A person can pick ONE team to cover or beat spread. To make it even more interesting I even included the option to bet OVER/UNDER. That's pretty simple to do right, heck us experts should all have perfect records. ;) Note: That is a big LOL, all those that have played know that. :D

    I stopped at that because it would probably be a little much to add more lines. So after you pick ONE if you win you pick up a win for that week. If you don't play that week obviously you don't pick up a win. Once an option is picked though it cannot be picked by someone else.
    For example if someone picks Miami -3.0 at Jets another person cannot pick it. (Just like I am going to do this week). Obviously if someone wants to pick the Jets +3.0 they can do so or if they want to bet the over/under of the game (that would be allowed as well).

    Remember for those that do not know breaking even on a spread is a loss.

    Deadline is 1/2 hour before 1st game. And yes I know the spreads change so we will stick by the spreads listed here.

    I am looking forward to going head to head with some of you and am looking for some of you to get involved like those "experts" that didn't join the fantasy. Then of course my fantasy folks as well.

    So here is the line this week.

    Monday, September 15
    DALLAS AT NY GIANTS Time: 21:05
    Dallas +7.5 NY Giants -7.5
    Over/Under
    Over +37.0 -110 Under +37.0


    Sunday, September 14
    DETROIT AT GREEN BAY Time: 13:00
    Detroit +6.5 Green Bay -6.5
    Over/Under
    Over +46.5 Under +46.5



    I pick Miami -3.0 at NY Jets.

    Don't worry I won't jump on taking up the first pick all the time. I am just getting this ball rolling. Actually maybe we will make it that those with the better records have the option to pick a team if somebody already picked them forcing the person with a worst record to repick.

    Anyway good luck and as said I am looking forward to taking on you. (Moonmist this is where the bets can come in).

    Now is that pick from the heart or head? ;) (Heart burns ya the majority of the time).



    Oh BTW-I don't want to see the infamous "Edited" either. Any pick with that "Edited by" is null and void.

    That is not from the heart. I feel that maybe they can have a decent year for a change. Especially if the owners stay out of the locker room.;) :D

    Well I will let you reconsider. picking TB at -10.0 means you are giving Carolina 10 points. So the game according to betting odds will start out Carolina 10 Tampa Bay 0. Bottom line: Tampa Bay must beat Carolina by 11 or more points in order for you to win with this pick.

    I'd bet you on that one. After losing last week GB is going to beat Detroit by a touchdown or more.
