in King of Covers

I thought oddsmakers tried to balance the bets so that who wins makes no difference to them. They just get their 4 - 10 percent that is figured into starting out at -104 to -110 (for even games) and moving the odds from there.

Well, THAT cleared it up.

in King of Covers

It's not just here. Some AFL games seem to get more love than others. Some games have lines while others don't early on and some games seem to be easier to get live scores on than others. I have yet to find a good live score site that would tell how much time is left in the game. I think AFL is just not a very popular sport.

Thanks. I went to 6-0. Can't really blame Covers though. The AFL lines come out late, sometimes hours before the game. And the initial lines can be crazy. I felt confident about all of my picks after just a little number crunching. That does not happen in any of the other sports. This is where my slight Autism pays off.

It has worked out well for me so far. I am in first place at 4-0 for the week and the season. Never been in first in AFL before. If I had gotten to pick in the first week I probably would have a loss. I am sure I will get knocked down soon though.

I took 3rd in the regular season with 33,000 that I mostly won in the last few weeks. I went into the playoffs confident. I lost 18,000. Just goes to show that I was lucky in those few weeks.

You did not use to have to click on Full Leaderboard to see your own score when you are not in the top 10. The user's score used to be shown right under the number 10 person's score. I was wondering if we will get that back.

What?

You should be able to make picks today, except if your Streak Survivor is pending. Then you will have to wait until it is fixed most likely.

I am an Instructor at a college. I do number crunching to help me pick. When I do well, I show my students to help get them interested in math. I think I have added a lot of contestants here.

Well, when I make my picks instead of refreshing my page I open a new tab. Then before I submit, I see if there is a better line less than 15 minutes old. As the error says if you pick an old line, they are good for 15 minutes even if the line changes. Once it went up by 5 and I got the better line since it was less than 15 minutes old.

Thanks, butkus. Those 20 grand losses help to keep ya humble lol

Excellent run on the last day. I held the lead for a couple weeks I think. Until the final 3 hours. Who leads at the end is all that counts. GREAT JOB!

Yep. I looked back at last season and saw I was 24 of 7792 O/U on NBA. 7397 of 7792 ATS. This season I did pick ATS, but did so sparingly. Lost 750 on it, but I am #1 on O/U and that has me at #1 overall.

I believe BCat is correct. I think you only win the one prize for the top level you attained.

IT'S FIXED! Thanks for the quick fix. Now can you stop Vegas from losing and dropping me back to 0?

Wonder why he sticks to NCAAB. He made 1 pick in the NBA, lost it and stopped.
