    Also, if anyone wants to throw out a proposition, go ahead- I’ll let you know if we’ll add it to the lines and you can bet it. You can leave it as no action if we don’t accept.

    @Lucas:
    We could do a true over/under, and it would pay out 1:1 on either end of it.

  • Lucas said:

    @Dan — OK cool, and to clarify, a 1:1 means I put up $10, you put up $10, and if I win I get the $20 (I realize it’s funny money I just want to get this stuff set in my head, it’s been a while since I hit the sportsbooks in LV).

  • Dan (author) said:

    Basically you put up $10, if you win you get your $10 bet back, plus another $10 in winnings.

    A 1:2 would mean, you put up $10 and if you win, you get your bet back, plus $5.

    Actually, we only play NE once, so I might as well take advantage and bet it all.
