The Days of having a locked in winner with a +7 team when a game goes to OT is over...

The regular season rules will now be the same as the recently adopted rules for Playoff OT games... like the one that saw Tebow win it with a TD pass on the 1st play (that play would have been a winner with the old rule as well).

In the regular season OT games now, teams have the chance to both get a possession unless one of the factors that ends the game instantly is met.

I don't feel like explaining it all here... but if someone has a link to the NFL rule please feel free to post it.

Only way you lose with +7 in OT is if you lose the coinflip,other  team score a FG on first possession, then your team throws a pick six.  So that is really unlikely, but possible.

But the under total bettor could get more easily screwed.  FG, then another FG, then a TD would be 12 more points. 

The rule is that the team that loses the coinflip gets a possession if the other teams scores a FG on their first possession.

 Be interesting to see the effect on totals lines. I think it's a better way to decide the outcome.

Very minimal effect, if any.  Only 5% of games go to OT.  Maybe a half point on games where the line indicates a close game.

College overtime rule would have been a much better in my opinion.

NFL is okay but college football is where the money is at.

 Compromise by giving both teams a chance to score from midfield, however: 1) Only one FG attempt is allowed by each 2) After any TD, the team must go for 2 point conversion.

Im glad I dont bet totals much, the OT rules will have an effect on some of those totals...........as for the regular spread, I guess things could happen but not as bad as a total.
