here are the 'rules' again:
The final number must be 10 or greater for a PLAY!
If the number is less than or equal to -1, then you play the other team ATS.
If the spread is 10 or greater , DO NOT PLAY!
Don't play if selected team played the night before. (No back to back games)
Don't play if one or more starters are OUT. Allow one week for return starters.
Don't play 1st 20 games of the season or 1st 3 games after all star break.
The spreadsheet only has the spread listed for the home team, so it adds the actual spread to the predicted spread, if the home team has the better record. If the road team has the better record, it subtracts the actual spread from the predicted spread. The road team is the better team in all of today's games.
I fixed the spreadsheet a couple of hours ago.
To avoid furthur confusion, I've deleted the spreadsheet from my google drive.
I recommend everyone download the spreadsheet in post 4, do the work yourself, and ignore any updated spreadsheets posted in this thread in the future.
