We have our winner! He's luling us into a false sense of security.



Well, you never know but truth be told if you offered me 100 - 1 to bet on myself I wouldn't take it. I'm hoping I learn something from my entry fee, and I enjoyed hanging out in the co-op game thread.

Will you give me the same odds/bet? That I'll make it in to the top 3? Any interest on top 5?



Yes. 2-1 you dont make top 3. 5-1 you dont win. I assume you will just make it a 'fair' bet, and not AP it. Meaning you wont offer $100 to a player ahead of you to forfeit, you won't collude with other players, stuff like that. I'm assuming a minimum of 25 bonafide players, which I don't think will be an issue. Even money on top 5.

Give me 3 to 1 Wizard in the top 3?



You have reading comprehension problems, my friend Axel? I offered someone with less of a track record 2-1 to finish in the top 3 and you think I'll give you higher odds (3-1) to accomplish the same? I'll give you 2-1 Wizard does not finish in the top 3. Same conditions I gave Romes. No AP moves like offering to buy off another player, you intentionally losing, etc...

SOOP can I get 2-1 on finishing above 50% of field I have failed in my previous 2 attempts.

My guess is I might go 0-85. I quit watching football when Kapernick decided he needed a knee. Actually a little before that when the rams wore those shirts in the debunked story of Michael Brown. I will be throwing darts for my picks

I think (though I may change) I will take weekly no matter the spread What kind of odds can I get if I take these same teams every week to finish in the top 10? $25 bet?

Jets
Dolphins
Pittsburgh
Raiders
Patriots

If you throw darts you won't be anywhere close to 0-85. (I suspect you are joking, of course.) You will be much closer to 50-50.

Note that you will need to select another team or two when any of your five teams play against each other.

Donít forget the bye week. Thatís 0-5 to start.

You might be fine with the alternates, but Iím not sure.

umm the season is 17 weeks including the bye correct?

My original 5 teams picked. If any have a bye week I go to my two alternate teams. If those are also unable to give me 5 picks playing then I get to open pick the rest. I doubt all 7 teams will be a bye week.

This is all blind other than the 3rd scenario the teams I picked to COVER the SPREAD
