Um, based on these figures, RD should be listed in first place.
No sir. Total wins lead. Ties aren't some category you just throw out of the mix. Total wins per picks made total is the winner. For example, in real life, if you were actually doing this by betting money, you would still have the same 3 catagories. Wins, losses and ties. Say $500 per game. Win and you get $500. Lose and not only do you lose $500 but you also owe a 10-15% "Vig". Tie and you still owe the 10-15% "Vig". So the losses and ties are amplified on the negative side. So RD is behind me by 1 win, but you have to factor in the math on 10-15% Vig on his losses and ties on top of being behind by 1 win. So, enough about that BS. 7 games left and 6 of the 8 are still in the running. Will be interesting and fun.
You don't pay a "vig" on "pushes" in football. Who told you that?

I've been a casual bettor on NFL football games for 35 years and I've never paid a vig on a push in my life.

I am a daily degenerate sportsbetter (meaning I will bet NBA if there is no other action) and the only time a push hurts you is if you are doing a parlay at the wrong sportsbook.

WTC in the last football pool in the old UJ:
"PERCENTAGES WIN FOOTBALL POOLS! NOT TOTAL WINS!"

WTC now:
"TOTAL WINS WIN FOOTBALL POOLS! NOT PERCENTAGES!"

Also WTC now:
"TOTAL WINS WIN FOOTBALL POOLS BECAUSE OF MONEYLINES AND VIGS!"

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

There sure is a lot of hoopla from someone who isn't even in the pool....
