Ok we did it last year and I believe G emerged the champ. here's how were gonna do it you get three picks (as last year) for each pick you get $100 (don't even ask about if its real :D) if you pick all three then you get $500.
THERE IS NO SPREADING THE BET so you can't say $50 on this game, $150 on this one, etc. you simply get $100 for each correct pick. More bookwork than I'm willing to do, doing it that way. :)
Remember you can pick team to win by spread OR Over/under.

Please disregard the money line in this list which is the
-110, +100, etc. as we won't be using this. Once again more bookwork.

Of course as last year if you have any questions please post.

I will keep the standings on who has accumulated most money.

Of course you can join in and play or not play any week you want but obviously those who play every week have a better chance of accumulating the most "money".

LOL actually moonie New England didn't cover the spread so if you picked them you would've lost. Do you still want to pick them? ;)

You bet on a team but you have to bet spreads. You get 3 picks for the week.

We will take
Oakland getting 4 points (+4.0) from Pittsburgh (-4.0 which means giving).
If you bet Oakland and the score is Oakland 21, Pittsburgh 23 YOU win because Oakland essentially was getting 4 extra points thus 21+4=25 and 25> than Pitts 23.
If you bet Oakland and the score is Oakland 20, Pittsburgh 25 YOU LOSE because 20+4.0=24 and 24<25.
Over/under you basically bet the total score of the game thus if the score was Oakland 20 and Pittsburgh 25 and you bet the over which was 41.5 YOU WIN, if you bet the Under you lose.

Hope that made some kind of sense. If you have any questions though you can post.

I think ya did;
You are saying
Seattle will win by atleast 3
Houston will win by atleast six
and
Arizona will not lose by more than 10, that is if they don't win.

Correct?

New Orleans +2.5
St Louis -11
Dallas +5

I have no clue what I'm doing!
They are the people that win. :)

You are saying that
New Orleans will beat Seattle or if they do lose it will be by no more than 2 points (since half points don't exist). So if New Orleans lost to a score of like 22-20 you would still win the bet because you got 2.5 points which would make it 22.5 to 22.
SIDE NOTE: With the spread A tie constitutes as a loss. In your case that would be impossible because of the 1/2 point.
Also saying St. Louis will beat Arizona by more than 11 points.
and Dallas will either beat Minnesota or lose by no more than 4 points. Why not 5 because if they lost by 5 it would be a "tie" and that is a loss for you.
Does that make any sense?
