    Just thought I'd open up my Pigskin Pickem group to this bunch of misfits. You pick all the NFL games against the spread each week and it keeps score for you. If you are a gambling degenerate like me its a fun group...if you arent a gambling degenerate its a fun group.. fun for everyone. So go ahead and join.
    Group is called Football Addicts.

    I'll try it. I never got into the whole gambling thing though.

    say a game looks like this .. " New England (-7) @ Cincinatti (+7)" that means New England is favored by 7 points. They have to win by 8 or more for you to win if you pick New England. If you pick Cincinatti +7...they can lose by 6 points or less and you win the bet. - means the team is favored + means the team is an underdog.

    Just placed my first college football bet in my life with a classmate of mine. Notre Dame -10 against USF. Thoughts?

    I was in Vegas one time and put $50 on OU and $50 on LSU to win it all at 15-1 and 10-1 odds respectively. I only took LSU because the odds were so good and, sure enough, they won it all and, sure enough, I lost my ticket.

    We just go from the ESPN score center app. It usually give you a line and over/under for the big games. I feel its a safe bet, but they call it gambling for a reason.

    vegas actually has Notre Dame -10.5 so it looks like you might have a slight advantage on the bet.

    I'm actually thinking about playing USF on the ML. Notre Dame is always overrated.

    I'll take my chances. ND is always a wild card.

    I lost $20. ND shot themselves in the foot tho. Terrible execution. They turned it over 3 times I remember (2 in the first half) knocking on the door.

    How much did you win on the game nikpin?

    That's the way football go.

    I'm trying not to fund my bookmaker account this season as it's just never a good idea. I really like SMU +18.5 or whatever it's at now though.
