    The winners will be based off winning % and how often they miss. If someone misses on weeks it's not a big deal, but if someone picks only 5 weeks and goes 12-5 they probably won't win. As opposed to last year we will be picking games with point spreads so we don't see everybody picking the same teams every week.

    Here is the official reward system and standings

    Yeah Kapono could you give us a quick lesson on the points spread. I tried doing it one year but failed miserably.

    OK Point spreads

    So let's say for a week 1 game I made Florida a 28-point favorite over FAU which could also be said as Florida -28. What that means is if I was to pick UF, they would have to win by 29 or more points for me to win my bet (28 would be a tie). If UF was to lose or to win by less than 28, I would lose my bet.

    Another way to think of it: Florida is -28 (28 point favorite). The -28 points means in a betting sense they begin the game down by 28 points. If they come back from the hypothetical deficit and win, I win my bet.

    Another Example: Boise St. is favored by 3.5 over Georgia (Boise -3.5 UGA). You bet Georgia +3.5 points. (You begin the game up 3 and a half points.) Half points are there just so there won't be a tie.
    Result of Game Betting Result
    Boise wins by 4 or more Lose Bet
    Boise Wins by 3 or less Win Bet
    Georgia Wins Win Bet


    Please Keep asking questions if you do not understand.

    And if the majority of you don't get it, I can simplify it and cut out the point spreads (but I'd like to use them).

    Looks great. Personally, I like the point spreads and think we should keep them. It adds another interesting component to the Pick 'Em game.

    So if we pick the underdog we say the team and then give a point spread for them or just pick that team.

    Not sure if I understand the question or not. If the spread is Boise 3.5 over UGA, you'd either pick Boise or Georgia. One side will win.

    OK short week here. I'll try to get these out 1 week in advance to give you guys time to pick your games.

    Also the point of these spreads isn't me predicting the game. I put it at where I believe there would be a 50-50 split on who people take for the matchup.

    Do not pick the game you are involved in. In Bucsfan isn't back in time to play JFace, that game won't count.
