    • Major North American sports only: NFL, NCAAF, NHL, NBA, NCAAB, MLB, CFL and WNBA.
    • Sides and Totals -110 or LOWER.
    • Contestants are graded against Pinnacle numbers at the time of post.
    • Must hit 60% or better to be declared a winner of the $1,000 prize.
    • Cannot play both sides of the same game.
    Hitting 60% at -110 means going 18-12 gets it done or +4.8 units

    I have long said the way this SHOULD be done is: Units Won

    Let people pick anything up to -150 but then allow them to take +150 dogs, too - and give them the chance to win at least 4.8 units by going 15-15 or even worse

    That is how things are done in "real life" and not doing "Units Won" is a bad way of doing things
    The mind is a terrible thing to waste unless we are talking about the MORONS who post at Covers where the collective Sports Gambling IQ for the ENTIRE site is.................4!!! and even that might be too high

    Agree with Winky here.

    Units won a much better indicator of handicapping ability. As Winky pointed out, 4.8 units is the same as 18-12 @ -110.

    Atlanta led 4-1 bottom 9, the Nats scored 3 to tie it. We both suffered bad beats in that game as I had the Braves at a huge dog price
    It's not the kill, it's the thrill of the chase

    Already in second place all-time for # of pushes, one away from tying the all-time record of 4.

    Difficult month to hit 60%.
    The All-Star break is one of my least favorite weeks on the annual sports calendar. Though it signals the start of college football prep for me.
    Here's to a 2-0-19 finish ...

    The guy even spells "moola" correctly.

    He should, he has plenty of it.

    That's not going to help your chances of going 2-0-19!

    Head above water with a record of 4-3-3.

    I'll pass on the All-Star Game tomorrow and instead focus on an NBA Summer League game between San Antonio and Portland.

    Nice. Clips were down 8 points or so about midway through the 3rd when I happened to glance at it.

    Stuck 13 when the Clippers finally decided to play.

    A 24-4 run spanning the third and fourth quarters saw the Clips go from a 9.5-point underdog in live wagering at William Hill to a 9.5-point favorite.
