No point mentioning those bats, I thought. The poor bastard will see them soon enough.


Quiz Description

PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY, IF NOT SEVERAL TIMES OVER: Given its betting line (for simplicity's sake, whole numbers, rounded up (ex: 3.5 becomes 4), will be used), you have one of three options to put as your answer- they are marked below **as such**. I'll use this betting line (from a Week 2 game) as an example with the * denoting the home team (if it is at a neutral site, this will be noted; "neutral" will denote a site that could be counted as a home field for one or both teams): Clemson (-7)* vs. Auburn: 1- Clemson **Beats the Spread** (in other words wins by 8+ points) 2- **Push** (Clemson or Auburn wins by exactly 7) 3- Auburn **Covers** (Auburn beats Clemson or loses by 6 or fewer points) [Again, to be clear, all you have to do is put one of the three choices in the **** as it will make grading a bit easier to navigate.] Lines are from ESPN's list of lines from the South Point Casino (as of 8/24/17) unless otherwise noted. NOTE: YOU MUST MONEY THE FINAL QUESTION. THIS ACTS AS A TIEBREAKER OF SORTS.
