ESPN made changes to the RPI and Standings pages which corrupted the spreadsheet.

The fixed version is here:

Yes, it is working.  For today:

MIA/ATL O7.5   (193.46)

TB/STL U7 (111.77)

I personally have not been doing the plays lately.  Totals are so tricky.

Did a quick hack job on it.  Will know for sure tomorrow if it updates okay.  No guarantees.

Dan,

I took a look at Degens spreadsheet.  It looks like the website he gets the schedule from changed their layout.  I don't have time to mess with it today but I can attempt to fix it tomorrow.

BCap,

Just thinking about other ways to make the picks a little more accurate.  Have you considered factoring in the park factor for each stadium?

You are a better math guy than I am so I'm not sure how you would take this into considertation but it definately is considered when the totals are set.

Cap,

My calculations indicate SD vs COL U10.5

No Over play.

Here is the current download link for the RPI spreadsheet.

Not sure why the download link is not working but I am out of town until Sunday and can't fix it until then.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

Cap,

That's your call but I would think there could be several days between games since the qualification gets tighter.  I personally would leave it as is.

Also note, that today's WAS/CHC play is in game #2 of the double-header.

Curious if anyone has managed a query for this on Sportsdatabase.com?

I am automating the pick for a spreadsheet and I'm getting stuck when there is more than one game that starts at the same time.  sportsdb does not have the rotation number (that I can find).

A better turn of events the last few days Cap.  Good job.

The COL/MIL Over would be a push, worst case, with two innings to go.

I figure you dropped it due to the unusually high score of the COL starting pitcher.  Do you have any parameters for when OU Scores should be dropped from consideration?  Higher than 190 but less than ???

Thanks again for all the work!

Thanks bbreit.

bD,

Is the system to pick whoever the dog is at 2:00AM the day of the game (I guess opening odds) (post #185)?

Also, if the Phillies were the 'offical' dog yesterday (post #182), they lost, why wouldn't today be G2?

Current line at scoresandodds - MIA -118 vs PHI +108

I do not have faith in the Giants at this point and I am letting the loss go.  Last nights game cost me as much as the entire COL series but to continue would put nearly the rest of my bankroll at risk.

Time to starting grinding away again.
