Haven't posted in a while, This thing looks awesome. Can it be expanded to bet on such things as politics.

I might have a couple of bonus side bets here and there, but I want the good bulk (98%) of it to be based on NFL stuff...

In the offseason, we'll use it to keep us entertained with some random stuff... But during the season, it'll be mostly football...

This is a clever way to get donations.

So when I bust it's 50 bucks for 500 points. Crafty I must say.

You bet New England at -175, which means for every $175 you lay, you get $100 in return... When you break that down to the dollar: 100 divided by 175 equals 0.57. So for every dollar laid, you get $0.57 back. So on the moneyline, you staked 50 and won 28 (50 x .57 = 28.5 / not certain why the software rounded down, the stingy sumb****)

You bet Indianapolis at +3.5 and won it, as they convered the 3 and a half point spread. Your bet was 75, and the odds were 1/1, so you came away with 75 in the bonus.

75 + 28 = 103

500 + 103 = 603


I think it did you right... any sharks want to check my math (or hell, logic)?

Stupid .5 I lost by .5 that sucks.

Betting on games like this is fun yet frustrating. I laid out 50 vbucks both on NE and only got back 31. Stupid .5 of a point. Hey this is fun.
