I've seen a lot of survivor and fantasy leagues on here but haven't seen a Point Spread league formed yet... Is there one up for here? If not I created one.

Yahoo Fantasy sports - Pro Pick'em - Join Group

League ID#: 34660
Password: thew

There's not much time before the first game on Thursday but I did set up to allow picks before 5 minutes of each game so if you don't read this before Thursday you can still join and start playing on Sunday and just be one game behind. But the league and picks do start for Thursday's game.

I'm in! We should remind anybody who wants to join that they have to go through to the Pick Em section of the Fantasy Football in order to get in this group.

I messed up the first time, but then I retraced my steps and got through. So all two of you who are in the league so far, LOOK OUT :0P

I'm in...I usually suck at these things but since it's all in good fun, I figured why not give it a whirl?

2 survivor leagues, local radio pick-em league, this, and a fantasy football league... I think I might be getting myself in over my head this year!

I feel like dunk. There's no way I am going to remember how many of these things I started out in! I am sure I will miss some weeks.

I've never done a PS league, but I was the first to join after the post.

We want to pick the team that covers the spread, right? I think I can get a handle on this.

You have the gist of it. The toughest thing about these usually are picking underdogs each week. On paper, the favorites will usually look better, but you have to show restraint. Although this week, I'm picking only a few underdogs.

Of course I don't know why I'm telling you anything. I'm so mind-numbingly mediocore in PS leagues usually.

Sweet! Thanks for creating this. I'm in a college PS pick'em too so the CellaDwellas will compliment that one nicely. :)

I should enter this, since it's free, but I've proven to myself that a coin has as good a chance as I do of picking against the spread.

We are all LOSERS, LOOOOOOOOOOOSERS!!! As the spread was 3 for the Pats and the final score was Pats by 3. we all left with no points.

Miami -- TN is "off"

Does that mean that we all get points for it, or that there is no spread and we are choosing the winner with no regard to points? The yahoo site was not helpful and I couldn't google it.

While this is too late to help, OFF means they've decided to not allow gambling on the game in which ever Vegas casino Yahoo gets its odds. (In this case, they probably did it because of the schedule move.)

Point spread leagues seem to always treat it as a pick 'em (0 point spread) game. If you've got the winner, you win.
