    Beginning this season, I will be posting point spreads each week for a select few games. Each user will be given $100 at the start of the season which they can/will bet as much or as little as they want on any of the games selected to be given a spread. All of your money will carry over season to season so don't be in a rush to bet it all. Once you're out of money, you're done for that season. Everyone will get an additional $100 at the start of each season whether they've run out or not. As this goes on, I may look into adding more ways to bet on the games but we're just going to start simply right now.

    TMFL Against The Spread is a challenge to see who can have the most money won by the end of TMFL 25. If you don't know how this works, it's very simple. There will be a point spread assigned to the selected games like this:

    Oakland Raiders
    @ San Francisco 49ers (-21.5)

    This means that, in terms of the bets, the 49ers are starting the game down by 21.5 points. If someone bets $50 on the Raiders and 49ers win the game 42-21, then they would win the bet because the difference in the game is 21 points and the 49ers did not cover the point spread. Now, if the 49ers win 31-7, they will have won by 24 points so the 49ers would have beaten the spread and the person betting on the Raiders would have lost the bet. Bets are all 1:1 so if you bet $50, you win $50.

    The only real rule is that you cannot bet on your own game. Any bet on your own team will be voided. Any game played against the CPU or simmed will be voided.

    If there's any questions, just ask TMFL25

    Here are the selected spreads for Week1

    Rematch Special

    New York Giants
    @ Detroit Lions (-5.5)

    Mismatch of the Week

    Oakland Raiders
    @ Denver Broncos (-13.5)

    Rivalry Showdown

    Baltimore Ravens (-3.5)
    @ Pittsburgh Steelers

    New Member Divisional Battle

    Miami Dolphins (-7.5)
    @ New England Patriots

    Best Friends Forever

    Minnesota Vikings (-5.5)
    @ Seattle Seahawks

    Well, If that's your goal, I certainly can't stop you from posting in here too, lol. Just pointing out that the form is the only way I'll be looking for placed bets.

    And I will be posting the spreadsheet of bets in here once the week is done. So they'll see.

    Week 1 ended with a sim between the Ravens and Steelers so all bets were voided for that. The standings have been updated to reflect the end of Week 1. Only 6 users won money this week while 13 lost money. Some quick analytics about the Week 1 betting:
    • Giants vs Lions - TMFL ended up winning $47 in this game. This was thanks to 70% of the betting being in favor of the Lions.
    • Raiders vs Broncos - TMFL lost $57 in this game. However, this ended up being one of the most split betting lines as the Broncos carried only 45% of the bets.
    • Dolphins vs Patriots - This was looking quite lopsided in the betting early on and almost warranted moving the line. It stayed where it was though and Vegas won big here. TMFL lost $415 in this game with only 31% of the bets being placed on the Patriots.
    • Vikings vs Seahawks - This game saw the least amount of action this week. 37% of the bets were made on the Seahawks which led to $47 being lost.

    Here is how the bets looked this week:
