    Description

    I am introducing a new feature here, and hopefully it's something that really takes off. I will post up games that each user has every week, along with the favorite and the over/under.

    This is how it will work. I'm UNC, and I'm playing GT this week. The Vegas line might look something like this:

    Georgia Tech +3.5
    UNC -3.5
    O/U: 29.5

    If you bet UNC on this one, UNC needs to score at least 4 more points than Georgia Tech. If you bet GT, the score must be within 3 points for you to win. If you think GT + UNC's score will be over 29.5, you say over. If you think the combined score will be less than that, you bid under.

    ex. UNC | Under

    This means you think UNC will score at least 4 more points than GT, and the combined score will be under 29.5

    If you guys have any questions, let me know.

    If you thought Wisconsin would score more than 4, you still pick them. You pick Indiana if you think the score will be within 4 points. Does that make sense? The over/under simply refers to the combined score of both teams.

    You're actually the favorite, the +/- are kind of opposite of what we did in LV.

    1. Do we exclude games that have already been played?
    2. Do we do all the games or do we pick one?

    Yeah, disregard them if they've been played. I'm going to try and get it post ahead of time so you have some time.

    Is it bad that I've never been a big gambler so I don't understand the whole over/under, +\-, and points.

    Over/under is simple, do the teams combine for OVER or UNDER the amount given?

    Anything with a "-" means that team is favored by whatever number follows "-" (-7.5) and "+" means that team is an underdog by whatever number follows the "+" (+7.5)

    In order to win, your team needs to cover. So if you pick the underdog they need to lose by less than 8 or win, and if you pick the favorite, they need to win by 8 points or more.
