[NFL] DSLR 2nd Chance Suicide Poll - 2012, Week 13

Ouch! Rough week. And our young Eagles fan forgot to play, too. Must be his cute li'l honey distracting him...

A man has to set his priorities, there, Mr. L.!!!

Last week's results for reference...




This weeks spreads...




Spread site to check the line as the week progresses.

I'm not sure if I understand point spreads that well but does "Off" and "PK" just mean pick a winner no point spread since they are too close to tell?

Doesn't 'OFF' mean there is no betting on the game or the line has not opened yet due to so many unknowns about injured players?

Screw it im taking the eagles this week. Im having a hob moment. Can they possibly lose 8 in a row. Sure they can. But i have faith they wont lose by nine again. I will be hanging by my little toe on this one.

Yep betting is off when off is on. Ide expect in a suicide poll it would mean even up.

This is all I could find online about "off".

"If a point spread is listed as "Off," this indicates that there is no official point spread for the game. This is most common when a FBS school plays a FCS or Division II school. When the line is "Off," you are simply picking which team will win the game."

Im pretty sure off means no bets can be placed on the team officially. Means lasvegas is afraid of losing there ass.

Yea "off" is simply pick a team.

"If a point spread is listed as "off," this indicates that there is no official point spread set for the game (e.g., when a team's star player is injured and it is unclear whether or not he will play). When the point spread is "off," you're simply picking which team will win the game."

That makes sense since Big Ben is hurt and the starting QB is up in the air right now. Big Ben might be cleared to play or Batch might start it's unknown.

Edited to clarify since is see a whole lot of misinformation in some of the above posts. OFF does not mean simply pick a winner.
{/Edit}

OFF means Vegas wasn't taking bets as of the OP. For the purposes of our poll, OFF means don't even try to pick it, because there is no established point spread.

PK indeed means pick a winner, straight up. The equivalent of the spread being "0".

In other words, don't pick the Pittsburgh/Baltimore game. It is a guaranteed loss.

just got your message about the pick, My pick was early. I hope yellow means you accepted it. It was the eagles early on. Everyone but me expected the eagles to get blown out. Almost did to. But hung in there with a 9 point underdog.

Yup - yellow means that the game wasn't final when I updated the Excel file.

Fair enough. You will get whatever the line is when I pull down the spreads tomorrow night. You will have until kickoff to change your mind.
