Anyone else got jobbed last night when trying to pick Michigan -5? I went to pick it LAST NIGHT, but they didn't accept my pick because they decided it was too good to leave on the board and took it off "due to the consensus". So it forced me to pick LIU-Brooklyn -3.5. Then got jobbed again by those pricks when they allowed a literal last-second garbage three to make it 78-75. If they decide to put it on the board for us to pick, they should leave it on. Period.

when it says "due to consensus" the pick doesn't disappear for good. it often means the line is moving, but if you wait the pick would likely be back up

It never appeared again. I even passed up Kentucky -4 hoping Michigan would show up. But nope. Not a thing. So I picked the other line, and that $#!+ happened. So pissed off that I lost my streak because of that crap.

Lighten up,  man.    You had a streak of 2.  And who the f*** is Brooklyn.  And the line closed at -1 or maybe pik 'em at tip.  There were plenty of other options or just lay off til the next day.   You're going to really pissed if you lose a streak of 9 or more if 2 is pissing you off.

Uh, Long Island, Long Island Brooklyn, LIU-Brooklyn. That's who (I did write that, didn't I). And I'd hate to have a streak of 16, 20, or 24 and have that bull$#!+ happen. It's all about integrity, dude. If they're so afraid of that particular line, maybe they shouldn't put it up in the first place. But once they made the decision, they need to stick by it.

And judging by how hard this game is, every win is crucial. My streak of 2 could (should) have been a streak of 4. If you like that bush league crap, then good for you. I didn't know I was supposed to like it. I was just blindsided, that's all. But now that I know that it's part of this contest, I guess I won't make a big deal of it. I'm done.

If the game is steaming MOVE the#!!! They move NYK -2.5 to -1.5 but take Missouri/Texas off.

I remember a March Sat when they played the 2 Championship games of the final 4. Only 2 NCAA games that sat and survivor cancelled the first 1.
