    Click on the event you wish to bet first.
    Will then take you to a page with both sides of the wager.
    Place wager is on right side in small print of team page.

    How about a Dummies Guide video to show us rookies how to do this.

    I may just not be seeing it, but is there a way to bet against the spread?

    Side question: does anybody know how they calculate the spread with the odds or are they determined separately. I ask this because Cal is projected to win by 19.5 and you still get $.91 on the dollar for picking them to win. That seems like a ton for a projected blowout.

    Is there anywhere on an individual's profile or anything that shows how much "Cycash" they have or just when you go in to make a wager?

    Don't see it either, I would assume those are coming by next week.

    I'm hesitant to bet it because when there's ever a highly questionable line or odds, it always seems to go the opposite of what you think the obvious choice is. The problem is, they are contradicting each other.:confused:

    Typically the oddsmakers are pretty good at what they do, but we're talking about CW here:D:D

    Exhibit A:
    In case no one noticed, the payout for both teams in the NE/CAR game is 110/100. Meaning if you bet 500 on either you get 550 + your 500 so 1050. Split it 500 on each and you come out ahead no matter who wins!

    Crap, I thought we were betting against the spread, not the money line.

    That answers my question. The Hawaii vs Cal odds were so weird because they're wrong. All of the betting odds are 110/100. Everybody in on the glitch before it gets corrected!

    I wondered why so many people were taking Hawaii.

    This is great.
    Just for curiosity, why does every thread start with a triple post from the thread's creator?

    It appears that each time we create an "outcome" so to say, it posts it as a post in the thread. Only thing I've figured out so far.

    I took CW's OP to mean we'll all get reset next week anyway. I'm hoping I get to keep my winnings from tonight, though.
