Thanks for playing everyone!

Thanks AURex. :cheers:

I'll check and adjust accordingly.

*********************************

Bama man was 5-3. Somehow, I had him listed as 3-5 also. I had his name listed right beside ReallyBigBamaFan, who was 3-5, and I inadvertently listed him again due to the closeness of the columns. I'll proof read better from here on out.

I appreciate the sharp war eagle eye and the correction AURex. As I stated in my original opening thread, I appreciate you guys bringing to my attention any errors/oversights I may make. Though I do my best not to make any, it happens occasionally.

The Vegas books can be a cruel world HD. :cry:

But, as I said, last years overall winner was running at about a 25% clip after 3 weeks into the contest, then came on strong, and in fact he dethroned the person who had led the contest for about the last 4 weeks prior to the last week. So hang tough. You will be surprised that in the last week, the large majority of players will still be mathematically eligible to win. I think we had 20 qualifiers last year, and 17 of them could still win going into the last week.

The trick with the bookmakers is to get a 50/50 win loss ratio at the window, that way, they are guaranteed to collect their 10% juice (booking fee). At season's end, they will come so close when everyone's win/loss tally is totaled together that it will amaze you. The Vegas bookmakers are that good at what they do.
