The Playoffs are here! The Playoffs are here!

The betting windows are open for Conference Championship wagering.

Any bets entered with the wrong line or wrong teams will be void!

Notes

I discovered an error in my spreadsheet that was not calculating the last two weeks in the balance for Truebigdog. The good news is that he now has $26,641 instead of the $21,491 that I reported in the standings at the end of last week. Sorry about that!

Please pay attention to the starting dates/times!
Remember that you must bet at least once every 3 weeks or you will be disqualified.

Tinlar must was disqualified for violating this rule
Talking Can must wager this week or be disqualified


Eliminated last week:

Lil Momma



Regarding Super Bowl Wagering: As I did the last two years, I will be adding some prop bets for the Super Bowl to make things a little more interesting. These will be; 1st Half spread and Over/Under (no money line), First Team to Score and Last Team to Score.

The 1st Half Spread and Over/Under will be bet like normal bets, the First/Last Team to Score will be bet like a money line bet. As all other bets go, the Min/Max on these is $500/$5,000 (unless you are all-in)

How to read the lines

Sample line

Thu 9/6 New Orleans Saints +6 +223 OVER 52.5
(Date, VISITING TEAM: Point Spread, Money Line, Over/Under)
7:30 PM Indianapolis Colts -6 -243 UNDER 52.5
(Time, HOME TEAM: Point Spread, Money Line, Over/Under)

How to bet the Money Line

Sample line
SAINTS +223
COLTS -243

First off, a money bet is a straight up win/lose bet. No points involved, so of course there are odds payoffs.

If you want to bet on the Saints, you will win $223 for every $100 that you bet. Conversely, for the Colts, you will win $100 for every $243 that you bet.

In other words, the team with the - money line is the favorite (therefore lower payout) and the team with the + is the under dog.

Placing Bets

PLEASE, format your bets like this:

Colts (-6) $5000
Chiefs (+142 money) $1000
Chiefs/Texans (Under 38) $2000

I just noticed that I left both games at Pacific time and forgot to convert to Central. Sorry if it caused any confusion.
