I was wondering how GT was favor'd and by some computer picks, to double the -5.  Figured this was Vegas giving us what we expected vs reality.  They win again!

So...week 17...where did you end up record wise?  Granted week 17 is the worst capping week with some teams not caring and sitting starters vs some wanting to play spoiler for a rival.  Any thoughts on the important games?

GB +3 !!!  So damn close for the win but I didn't take ML either.  Good job AFN.

Why?  Same with adding ML on the Colts.  Can you share what you are seeing to add ML in addition to the Spread?

Thanks for the Jets...Sucks on the Jags :(

ok...Although I'm NOT a great reader, I have read this entire thread and am missing some stuff that I can eventually get over.  However I have some question (For now).....

How did you choose to take the ML on the Colts game vs just taking the spread?  And then why not take the Saints ML?  And where did I miss your explanation on how the "program percentage" play is determined?

I like the process and agree with the Vegas "fake out" principle.  Vegas never picks a score.  They set the line that they know the public will buy into.

thanks

Email just sent. It's doing it on my android phone as well.

Is anyone working on fixing the table spacing on the Picks Profile pages?  I've tried in Chrome and Firefox (both latest versions) and they both look jacked up.  The Score and Pick columns are cramped due to the Game column being too large/wide.  This is also wrapping the rows which is making it harder to read.

Any idea when this will be fixed?

The game was delayed overnight due to rain.  They finished it this morning (7/24) with CWS winning.  If we picked that game on the 23rd, does it not count?  It's not on my detail for the 23rd or showing as a pick for the 24th. 

If this is the wrong place to ask this, please excuse.

I took the over and got a loss.  I'm sure they'll have it fixed in the overnight processing.

Did I miss something?  Per wagerline Ball State was the home team.  Wagerline even has Ball State listed as the home team and is displaying the score wrong.  Anyone report this or have talked about it yet?

I've been checking out the free picks for awhile now and have pretty much made the same pick on Wagerline.  And I have to say; at least 60% or more of their picks are duds.  Now this of course is not a scientific number as they don't record their free picks last 10 records.  In fact when the contest starts, they remove that free pick from the site so you won't remember which capper gave it to you unless you record it yourself.

Don't get me wrong, I love this site and make a big chuck of change from the sports betting industry.  However I'd have a lot more respect for the Covers Experts if they posted their free picks records.  Where is the motivation to purchase picks if their free picks are off?

Anyone else have a different or similar experience?

Does this happen everywhere?
 
I put $200 before f'ball season started.  I received a 20% bonus from them.  Had a few good bets and wanted to get some cash out.  Withdrew $450 (leaving $148) knowing they would take at least the 20% back.  But they also decided to take 20% of my winnings (about $70) leaving me with $38.
 
They said the stipulations of the bonus was that I had to "turnover" 10x my original deposit + the bonus.  Thus I would have had to bet $2400 before I could pull out any of the deposit and bonus.  Wow..I do that in Vegas, but never would do that much online.
 
Now of course I didn't lose any of my original money, but did lose some of my winnings.
 
Do all online SBs do this?  I even wonder if there was a way for me to refuse the bonus to not be under their "special" rules.
 
thanks for you replies/advice
