    The way it works -

    Post your bets, maximum bets are 100 points (GA dollars) per week.

    Betting for teams: You're betting straight up against the line. The line is stated as the favored team having negative points. In other words, if you want to bet for a team stated as "Buffalo (+3) at Miami (-3)", then Miami is favored by three points and you must beat the spread in order to collect. If you lose, you have to pay the house the number of points you bet (ethics is the house). If you bet for the underdog, you get the advantage of the points, in this instance you get spotted 3 points if you bet for Buffalo.

    Betting the Over / Under Line: What you're betting on here is how many points both teams will score. Oddsmakers have placed the over/under line, and if you think both teams will score over that number, then you bet over. Example - The Over / Under line for Houston at Dallas might be 36 points. If you think they both stink and you don't think the combined score will reach that, then you might bet your GA points/dollars *under* the O/U line.

    All bets must be placed by 11AM CST on game day. That's typically one hour before kickoff.

    All ties are a wash. If the over / under line is 40 and both teams score 40, you win nothing and lose nothing. If you pick a team and they match the spread but don't beat it, you win nothing and lose nothing.

    You can make any bet on any team, but your total weekly bet may not exceed your current GA points/dollar total, and your bets may not exceed 100 GA points/dollars for the whole week.

    ***Note - The Global Affairs dollars have no cash or redemption value. This is a "for fun" type of betting, and you are rewarded with GA points or GA dollars only, which can be redeemed for neat stuff at the <A HREF="http://www.globalaffairs.org/forum/store.php?s=&action=main">Global Affairs Thumbs Up Store</A>.***

    Your betting AGAINST your beloved Giants?

    Not my team, actually, never was--not even with the SB winnings.

    I always liked the Vikings but the Jets have a place in my heart and I always root for them instead.

    I only root for the Giants when they play the despised Eagles though. ;)

    Well my friend you may get to root for them one more time if they find their way to Veteran's stadium in the second round of the playoffs.

    Every Eagles fan I have spoken too, as well as the beat writers I read regularly want this tie breaker to prove that the Eagles are in fact for real and the Giants are nothing more than *also rans* :)

    Our star player is returning for the playoffs and I have yet to see a more level-headed, determined, talented quarterback in my years of following the Eagles. Donovan McNabb is a man on a mission.

    And the fans at Veteran's stadium have a reputation that surely precedes them :) So I say "just bring it baby" :)
