Too many people are taking a particular side or total, the reasoning is to offer as close to 50/50 propositions as possible.

WTF........how about the games that aren't even listed, yesterday I wanted to pick Green Bay and got stuck picking the over in the Ind/Hou game and today I like Memphis(NBA) and Syracuse(NCAA) and of course both are unavailable, in a word just a roadblock { to success}.

This is like when you bet at a real sportbook. If too many people bet on that game or the stakes are too high, the game vanishes. The same here.

It looks like a correct move for me.

Bull-crap.... If a game is steaming at a REAL book they move the LINE or change the odds. If there is an injury/question of who may play they circleit or take it down. Covers.com doesn't trust their own #s so if 70% of the trollers here jump a game they just punt the game. Why no Boston/Chicago nba? Consesus is 51/49 and no injurys,line is chi-1.5?

Why the fck is a game listed (Oklahoma St. -14' ) if you can't pick it. WTF, that's the main reason why it's almost impossible to reach 25 !

Now it's Oregon St., again why is a game listed if you can't pick it, very annoying.
