Giants vs. Eagles (-7)
Chiefs vs. Colts (-7)
Cowboys vs. Seahawks (-3)

Jets vs. Patriots (-8 1/2)
(tie-breaker game)

Nikki,
To make this a competitive pool, you should use the last game on Sunday as the tie-breaker. The closest total points scored by both teams. If 4 people picked 4/4 correct....who is the true winner if there is no tie-breaker. Just a suggestion.

P.S. Play with the points spread........I'll take the Jets.

In NaTuReB0Y's post below he has Eagles favored by seven points, Colts by seven, etc.
Giants vs. Eagles (-7)
Chiefs vs. Colts (-7)
Cowboys vs. Seahawks (-3)

Jets vs. Patriots (-8 1/2)
(tie-breaker game)
So, in order for the Eagles to "win" the game in the gambling world they have to score seven or more points than the Giants. For the Giants to win with the spread the Eagles have to lose outright or win by fewer than seven points.

I think I have that right.

Gotcha, thanks SoYank
Giants vs Eagles (-6)
Chief vs Colts (-5)
Jets vs Patriots (-7)
(-7) Cowboys vs Seahawks Did I do this one right, I am saying cowboys should wins >= 7 points

FWIW, here is my point spread if we play (I am not gambling, just playing ) the point spread and if we just play the regular way, look at my previous post.

I loved last weeks results against Detroit. I'll root for any team that is playing Dallas, even if it is the Broncos, Fortywhiners, or Pittsburgh.

you're doing it all wrong.........you cannot change the point spread.....

the spread is set up by Vegas......you bet according to their spread.....

Do you mind going into more detail? What do you mean changing the spread and Vegas? Look if it is too much trouble, dont worry about it. I'll just stay out of this game

edit: did not mean to change the point spread

Yep you get whatever the points are when you place your bet. It can change many times before the game so some people shop for the best points. If you bet too early and someone gets hurt during the week you may be locked in to a bad bet.
