    How do you play?

    Is it, e.g., At New Orleans -5.5 Minnesota, if I pick New Orleans and New Orleans wins by less than 5.5, i.e wins by 1,2,3,4,5 pts or even loses or ties, I lose?

    Just to add, last year's competition never really got finished off, which disappointed yours truly as I believe I was winning when the last set of results were put up!

    Exactly - The first team listed is always the favourtite, and the number that follows is the spread (the number that they must win by more than to "win" from a betting perspective). So, in your above example, if you think that Minnesota will do no worse than lose by 5, you pick them. If you fancy New Orleans by 6 or more, take them.

    Sorry JJ - Didn't realize that I never posted the final results. Must have gotten away from me, what with the job hunt and kids and everything going on back then... Apologies.

    If it makes you feel any better, I think that Avy stormed home with two fantastic final weeks to pip you at the post! I'll confirm tonight, when I get home from work.

    Don't trouble yourself in that case, mate. ;D

    Hope all is well now.

    Of course! I'm amazed I'm the only one! I've learnt over the years never to get too optimistic about Detroit. Its not worth it.

    The "Metro" betting column today tips the Bengals - yes, the Bengals - for the Superbowl, with the Pack as an outside punt. Any views, anybody?
