The EOG Octagon (RAILBIRD v THE FACTSMAN)

One way to get Baseball to -110 is with Run Lines and Alternate Run Lines. This would also allow Baseball to mix in with
Basketball and Football picks for straight Win-Loss competition.
Not a fan of this idea at all.

Once we start talking alternate/reverse run lines, the juice can get very, very heavy.

Thanks for the suggestion, TEXED.

Your point is valid but the event is more attractive with fewer rules and restrictions.

We don't want to handcuff the participants.
 
We agree to disagree
The current format is definitely more skill based.

I'm not sure why you would disagree. I imagine CompBob can come in here in prove it (maybe I am wrong....)

Guys taking -500, or whatever, could potentially rack up units over a small sample of 30 games and since the sample is so small the inevitable fall is less likely to come within those first 30 days.
