Wait let me get this straight. So if the spread predicts Denver to win I have to choose the opposing team to win in order to beat the spread? If so that sounds a little screwy...

That's how betting lines work. It makes it a little more difficult. Most favorites win, so they through a handicap in there to increase the difficulty.

let me se if I understand this, sinc ei never really gambled or bet on well any sports before, lol.


example Patriots are favored against the ravens by 8 points. the 2 ways to win against the spread are.

1)Pick Pat's and they win by greater than 8 points
2)Pick the ravens, and they just have to lose by 7 less then Pats or better

Correct. if the patriots win by exactly 8 then you lose either way (push counts as a loss)

You are right I didn't play last year (didn't know about it) but I looked up the thread and it did increase a case a week until they had a winner in week 9, that would be sweet if they did it again this year but like you said I do not see it listed as a roll over with new cases added anywhere, and it does state that in the pick 3 contest for the boxes so if they were doing it I think they would have stated it. Still a cool contest anyways.

-The pats won but it is apparently showing up as a loss on my sheet. As i do not understand why (i thought we just picked the winners) i won't be participating again. Simply thought it was a pick'em challenge.

guess you didn't read the rules, clearly says against the spread.

how can someone complain about a free contest that BO doesn't have to do?

The Browns/Dolphins game had a spread of 0.0... I picked the Dolphins and still lost that pick... how in the world would you win that?

I picked the Dolphins as well and it is showing my pick as correct. When the spread is a 0 its just straight up who wins.
