          Back to your corners, men.

          And get the punches up, nothing below the belt.

            960 St Louis - Cubs under 8+102

            Hoping the combo of rust and cold keeps this under.

                I love pushes when assessing the gambling skills of a sports bettor.

                Many times, the shrewd shopper will earn a refund ("push") when everyone else on the same side loses their money.

                  FW's current record is 7-7-3.

                  Four consecutive ties from here will pay an EOG guaranteed jackpot of $7.77.

                    907 Wash +100 vs Mets

                    Basically fading the move from Wash opening the fav to a PK. If its a rainout, I'll replace it with 517 Ind +8.

                      You needed more rain in New York.

                      Nevertheless, good call on the Pacers.

                      FW's current record is 7-8-3.

                          They have given me two losses and I'm going back to the well here -

                          523 Philly -2.5 -108

                          Not much to pick from and the one I really liked is moving away from me (Pirates).

                            A romping winner for FW to even his mark at 8-8-3.

                                  712 Ind -1.5. -109

                                  should be a lot of public support for the Cavs after LBJ’s big game, yet they are still the dog. I’ll take a game Pacer team that has played them tough in two road games.

                                            721 Houston -5.5 -109

                                            Must-win game for Minn as its their first home playoff games in years and the crowd should be jacked. Best way to take them out of it is for Houston to dictate tempo. Even if KAT has a bounceback game, he'll need help from an ailing Butler. Thibs plays the regular season with playoff intensity, not sure if the T-Wolves have a higher gear. It should be a close game throughout, but Houston has more playmakers to extend a lead late.

                                                    A handy winner for FairWarning.

                                                    All eight runs scored by the Royals came via the home run: a grand slam by Almonte, a three-run shot by Moustakas and a solo homer by Merrifield.

                                                    FW improves to 10-9-3.

                                                      967 Seattle-ChiSox over 9 -102 (Fullmer now listed).

                                                      Nicest weather day of the year for the Sox at home. Too bad for Fullmer that he is bumped up a day. The Sox bullpen has been no treat either, getting worked over by Oak and Houston. I’m playing the Seattle TT over on my own, wouldn’t surprise me if they get to 9 themselves.

                                                            Nicest weather day of the year for the Sox at home. Too bad for Fullmer that he is bumped up a day. The Sox bullpen has been no treat either, getting worked over by Oak and Houston. I’m playing the Seattle TT over on my own, wouldn’t surprise me if they get to 9 themselves.

                                                            Final score: White Sox 10 Mariners 4.

                                                            FW improves to 11-9-3 for a winning rate of 55%, five percentage points behind the ultimate goal.

If the contest sponsor wanted, they could reasonably define win% as W/(W+L+T) and FW would be at 47.83% or define it the way you apparently want.

And how would FW be below 50% in the first place when it's self explanatory to calculate ties as known currently sitting with a winning record?
