I went to pick Ohio St. +10 for my Survivor play and it would not allow me to due to a high consensus. Then I hit refresh and the game was off the board. Does anyone know why this happened? and why it would not give me Ohio St. when it was available?  Thanks.

Covers is like my company lunches, sometimes I don't like what they offer, but it's hard to complain when it's free.

My God read the rules, when there is to much consensus on a game it is pulled, you answered your own question...what is the problem? pick sooner...

OR don't give up because I've seen games disappear and then come back. The worst is when you look at the board, and the game you like is there and then you go do some research and come back as it's f'n gone...........WTF

Even worse than that is when the only games available will put you over the 7 day limit to make your bet and your streak resets.  =/

You have been a member since march 2006 and you are asking this question now?
I now see why you lost your 16 streak (MN really?) and most wins for September

yeah, take it from reddog. his GENIUS, amazing (aka stupid-lucky) streak was based on taking the biggest favorite and getting lucky 16 games.
Good strategy man. No strategy at all really, straight luck. Watch out for those Royals though, lmao that must still sting man how embarrassing.

I now see why you lost your 17 streak

Just play the biggest favorite before it goes over -130 every day. That way you get a good record (though you'll never get 20 in a row etc doing it). Pick a few hundred like reddog and one day you'll get lucky for a while.
