Ok so did anyone bet on the Bostons Celtics in the Survivor game 2nite?  Umm, I know how it looked like the 76ers were gonna win--but they DID NOT!  why did my streak go down?  I picked BOSTON and they WON.  so it would be nice if those guys could give me my 3 game streak instead of saying that I have 0.  If i am incorrect about this some1 please tell me so .  But, the last time I checked 100 (boston) 99(philly) that would mean Boston won, right?  Amd that is what i picked!  Anyone else see this?

cmon guys im new to this a little help?
 
is it based on the spread thing which im just starting to figure out?
 
it was Boston -3
 
Plilly + 3
 
What does this mean?  I picked Boston Celtics and they won 100-99!  so I should have won right?

Boston was -3 so you lost the game, how do you figure you won?

-3 means subtract 3 points from Boston's total or if you took Philly +3 add the 3 to their total. Called point spread

Thats WHAT that silly line stupid thing is!  F*CK I thought i had won.  So then Boston would have had to win by 4 for me to win?  and if thats the case how in the world do peeps pick games that are like -13.5!  it could easily go either way!  i thought it was just pick the team!  crap well there goes my streak of "3".  anyone care to give some insight on this whole spread thing?  So like if u think one team will surely win but the line is -13.5, am i understanding that the team must then win by 14 for me to get it right?  But, say mabe i take the other team and they lose by 9, then i still win cuz they would have been +13.5?  OH MAN DOES THIS JUST THROW A WHOLE NEW TWIST ON THINGS!  anyone care to add anything to my reasoning or a helpful hint?

1 other question?  if this whole line thing is right then what the heck does it go for in hockey???  I will now present to the court FIGURE A: EXHIBIT G:
 

NHL

02/04/09 Boston -115 Philadelphia +105
Over 5.5 Under

5.5

so for tomorrows hocky game if say i pick Boston (which right now that very name is not cool with me) Boston would have to score 116 points more than philly???  In that case everyone better take the over!  i know thats silly but what the heck does the line mean in this case???

I'm wondering if this thread is a joke thread. Either way, I think After_I_Win is a funny man. As far as the hockey -115, +105 lines go in your exhibit, you'd have to bet $115 to win $100 if you bet for Boston to win, and you'd win $105 if you bet $100 on Philadelphia. Anyone can correct me if I'm wrong since I'm kind of new to this thing myself.

Doesnt mean garbage.   Just pick who wins in Baseball and Hockey cause those are money lines.  Football and Basketball on Survivor will have pointspreads.
 
Why no questions asked when your second play covered the spread and your team lost the game,  you were credited for a win....

Like crushalot said, don't worry about the hockey money lines. Unless you plan on putting any sort of real money on hockey or baseball games, you won't have to really worry about what their lines mean. You can learn about it if you want, but it doesn't have much to do with this survivor game. Basically though, hockey and baseball games are so low scoring that it's kind of pointless to put a spread on their games, so they use the money line method instead.

Using my newly discovered talent in reading these unusual numbers called lines/spread or whatever the heck u want to call it, I will do my best to assist u.  ok so like u noted Port 99_Mav 104.  ok so what we need to do here is a little substraction...everyone pull out ur calculators.  104 - 3.5 = 100.5.  Wow im sure glad I had my mathematical instrument for that one--my head is hurting.  So then if I were to understand the system correct this would put Dallas at 100.5 and Portland at 99.  So if u picked Dallas u should have the WIN!  I did notice that a scoreboard on this site had Dallas at 102 so maybe there was an error.  NBA has it at 104...so dont worry, be happy...dont get me started. lol  Ok so I think I covered it

...if my teachers above need to correct me please do.

After_I_Win, glad to see you are getting a hang of this.  We all start out as noobs.  Once you get the gist of it, you will start learning more and more about the subtleties of betting.

Here is a good link provided by covers to calculate bet payoffs, parlays, etc:

It may be a good idea to learn how to spell and use complete sentences before you go off calling people retarded.
