I'm assuming Russ' odds page is the official numbers for placing of bets. Does that page get updated periodically through the week? Or, are the numbers taken from some other source at a set point each week and those are just the numbers we stick with regardless of whether the lines move throughout the week?

Typically, the odds don't move very much. I normally post the odds on Tuesday or Wednesday and leave them as is. We may get a .5 movement here or there in the over/under or the line, but I have never heard anyone complain that I haven't moved them.

I would assume that if I did, I would have to offer original odds to those that placed their bets early and new odds on those that placed their bets after. Which could be done, but would take longer to calculate.

That was what I was getting at. In my post I made sure to specify all the odds/lines for each bet as I thought this migh be happening. Since now I know they don't move, I know I can be lazier in my posts. :)

Call me slow but I have a question about the 10%. I'm working on a spreadsheet to help me keep track and I'm not sure about the 10%.

Does the 10% come out of total bet winnings or just winnings.

For example

Bet = Indy +3 $1000

Win $1900 (bet + 10% off return)
or
Win $1800 (bet + 10% off total)

I also have a question, mr Russ... I bet some money on Indy + 3... the score was exactly +3... so do I win or lose?

Ought to be a push, but I'll obviously defer to the Mod.

Russ did a great job on the rules page too,have you seen it? :D


9. All ties on the Line and Over/Under bets return 100% of the bet to the player.

Return only.

Heres the spreadsheet if anyone wants it. I had posted it on the gambling thread earlier but I've since fixed some mistakes.

To throw a spanner in the works, it is only 10% on the winning line and over/under bets. But not on the money bets.
