Nah, you're in striking range. I have hosted a variant of this contest in real life for real dollars and you're good.

The fact that only two lost nominal amounts is kind of impressive.

Admin note: remember to get your picks in for week 2 before the deadline to avoid being autopicked.

ACC: Clemson -6.5 vs Auburn .... $500
B12: Oklahoma +6.5 vs Ohio State .... $500
P12: USC + 6.5 vs Stanford .....$500

AA, I think we're allowed to bet the dog to win v. the spread like I did with USC, right?

Yes, you can bet either.

So, your bets are...

Clemson -6.5 for $500
Ohio State -6.5 for $500
And Stanford +6.5 for $500?

Is that correct, Jeff?

Just put the team you are betting on and the amount.

For example:

Poly Tech -3.5 vs Northern State (remember Poly Tech -3.5 also means Northern State +3.5)

*If you take Poly Tech, you are betting that they win by 4 or more.
*If you take Northern State you are betting that if they lose, they lose by 3 or less (or win outright).

So if Poly Tech wins 28-26, you win if you took Northern State +3.5.

So, in that example, Poly Tech for $500 means you lose $500. Northern State for $500 means you win $500.

Yep, the reason I asked is because I screwed that up on the C-State C game. I meant to bet Colorado and probably mindlessly changed the +/- signs on C-State.

Good explanation above too. I'm not a regular better anymore. Used to be but no more. Shaking out the cob-webs on betting ATS. So, thanks for that.

I don't think osu is going to cover. IU's D is decent, it's on the road. We have no idea what DeBord's offense is going to look like...... other than there will be a lot of off-tackle left runs. And that's regardless of whether or not they produce any gains.
Yeah, on this, the way it's written, you took Colorado State +5.5 for $500.

All you need to do is post who you want and the amount you're wagering. Re-posting the spread isn't necessary. Just know that -5.5 (or whatever) means that your pick has to win by 6 or more.

+5.5 (or whatever) means that your pick can lose by as much as 5 points.

And that if team A is -5.5 then team B is +5.5 (even if the mirror spread isn't posted).

I was really close to upping my wager on M like Hack, was really confident in them but held off due to the homer effect I tend to have betting on M.
