Browns (-4) @ 49ers (+4) O/U 46

These will be the lines, it is what it is. I think I might have messed up the Browns game putting that in manually because I noticed that there were not Lines from that one. Aside from that, it's just what the converter on Miplet's site put. Maybe something to do with that I did it from my phone?

As far as end of the year standings, just exclude that game.



"As far as end of the year standings, just exclude that game." What does this mean?

If we pick 49ers +4, and we win does that mean that our win in this game does not count in final standings?

If we pick 49ers +4, and we lose does our loss in this game count in final standings?

What if we pick the Browns -4 and we win? Or we lose? Do those games count in the final standings?

I imagine that some persons may have already submitted picks and perhaps have picked 49ers +4. Do those picks count?

I feel a sense of creeping confusion and chaos.



There should be a special trophy for anyone who picks the Browns -4 and makes it their Confidence pick.

SOOPOO said he likes to see how we do at the end, Iím saying just donít include this game for that reason. One time VI actually had a clearly erroneous line that I didnít catch. Hardly unprecedented.

The pick counts as far as the game is concerned.

Im still confused. Naturally i took SF +4, what a bargain, almost got scared Jimmy G was hurt. This has to count, lines are lines, post them, they're final. If you dont read from the list, you should, these are the official lines to choose from. How can a pick be a pick, if it doesnt count as a pick in the end of year standings? Everyone has an opportunity to still take SF+4 right now. Changing mine to confidence right now.

I agree. It is what it is. Everyone has the same opportunity to pick or not. Confidence or not. And we all know the Browns will end up covering the four...

30% chance. Approximately.

This will be an interesting week.
There may be some who are close to the bottom that see Browns -4 as an opportunity to try and secure last place.
There may be some mid pack that know the frontrunners will be taking the 49ers and see an opportunity to pick up 2 games on all of them by taking the Browns.
There may be a 'hedger' who will pick the 49ers but not as a confidence pick.

Before this error, I was going to take Browns +4 as my confidence pick. I think they just have so much talent, and talent usually (eventually?) wins out.

But I guess I'll have to take the free 8 points and go 49ers +4.

Excellent observations.
