    Yahoo NFL Pick Em

    league: poly
    password: appleton

    first 50 are in

    and I set the league to using yahoo's spread/tiebreaker system and we're dropping everyone's lowest score so people who miss a week wont be knocked out of the running

    sorry

    And there's an option to play with confidence points without a spread, I think we did that last year too.

    At first... I thought this was going to be like the salary cap league, and that my picks would be used for both groups (Poly and FFZ). I see now that this is just yet ANOTHER set of picks I have to make each week

    What? Why does carolina vs chicago say push instead of correct as i chose carolina?

    And why do i have a ''incorrect'' for steelers vs cleveland when the page displays both that i choose steelers, and that they won?

    By the point spread?

    Yeah... the point spread for the Carolina/Chicago game was 3 points, and Carolina only won by three, thus a tie.

    And the Steelers didn't cover the spread, so even thought they won the game, bettors lost

    I'm just saying, if a person can have a winning percentage over a season, they need to do it for a living. Beats hell out of working.

    Actually, assuming a) equal amounts wagered on all bets b) the bookie/house takes 10% juice on all losses and c) pushes are considered "no bet" you need a winning pct. of 52.4% to break even.
