Things should be much better now guys. We're sorry for the trouble and let us know if you see anything suspect at this particular point.
SBR Forum (57 months ago)
Hi guys, neutral courts caused some issues with the spreads this week. There is no need to notify each one, the system is being fixed and bad line bets removed. We're sorry for this temporary inconvenience.

My pick won (St Louis -11), on the right spread and on the wrong spread. And I get no credit for it?
SBR Forum (57 months ago)
Taking bad lines lead to the pick being removed.
Roadtrip635 (57 months ago)
On 3/14 I had Oregon +3 and it was graded as Washington winning 80-77 and a push, but Oregon won 80-77. Did SBR have the entire thing reversed, lines and scores or was it a mis-grade? If it was a bad line, shouldn't that pick have been removed? I didn't knowingly bet into a bad line, if that was the case, but this whole thing is just confusing.

Colorado line is backwards. Has them +5.

Hard to believe 53-46 takes 74th lol really hard to believe
convick (58 months ago)
Break even point at -110 is 52.38%, zero units. 53% is barely above that, unrealistic to expect to break the top 50 with that. Top 10 are all going to be 60%.

Chili_powder or goldengreek does anyone of you giving away free picks :D ?
Chili_Powder (58 months ago)
Putting in too much time at work to feel too confident in my picks. If someting stands out I'll try to start a thread. Good Luck.
yisman (58 months ago)
So no actual points awarded, correct?
SBR Forum (58 months ago)

yisman (58 months ago)
it says at the top it awards tri-points, so I thought maybe it just awarded tri-points and not freeplays
Scrappy Do (58 months ago)
I'm coming, get ready boys...
yisman (59 months ago)
hit my last 6, for +12, but I'm still way out of contention :(
ramones951 (59 months ago)

BennyBigNuts (59 months ago)

Chili_Powder (59 months ago)

BennyBigNuts (59 months ago)
Hawaii game from last night needs to be graded still.
Timmay (59 months ago)
Can you bet more than 100 games?
GUMMO77 (59 months ago)
No, just 100.
Timmay (59 months ago)
For sure. I started out good lol and now have been losing lol.
darrell74 (59 months ago)
what is action, in the rank column?
GUMMO77 (59 months ago)
Action is the +\- from your picks against the spread. In this contest "action" isn't used.
konck (59 months ago)

Louisvillekid1 (59 months ago)
What a pisspoor effort on my part! 79 Louisvillekid1 53-46-1 53.54 % W 1 93.5 +4.00
numismatist (59 months ago)
+11.6 units do you think this will put me in the top 25 at the end?
kidk (59 months ago)
I think to make top 25 in the end you will need +20
dikefale (59 months ago)
I think maybe not even top 50 with that result.
Louisvillekid1 (59 months ago)
Gl Numy, I fired away early in this contest not taking my time.... I'm like 23-8 since taking it seriously and still only 52-45-1 :lmao:
Timmay (59 months ago)
Ends in April. Hmmmm.... I'm trying to think on average how many games that is per week. 100 is a lot of games!!!
jose21_us (59 months ago)
you have more than enough time
Seaweed (59 months ago)
Is it too late to finish top 10?
TxAaron (59 months ago)

BennyBigNuts (59 months ago)

ramones951 (59 months ago)
