    Hey y'all . . . I'm sharing my unofficial final rankings here. These do not account for any posters who edited picks in the final week. I also excluded those who did not make picks the last week (gotta finish). Again - unofficial. Nawlins made a good push at the end, going 4-0, but the leader held on. Congrats to @igabradley, your 2018 Picks Panel Champion! :emoji_trophy:

    I'm going to look at this from a gambler's point of view. Juice on the gambling sites is 10% or so isn't it?
    OK, so if we take the best record amongst us, (igbradley, 24-13) and pretend we bet a hundred bucks on each game....how did we make out?
    Including the juice:
    24 wins: Risked $2640, won $2400.
    13 losses: Risked $1430, lost $1430.
    I hope I did that right.

    So we risked $4070 and came out with a net profit of $970.
    So that's a 23.8% profit with the best winning percentage on this board.
    That's before taxes too.

    Gambling doesn't look so fun when you work the numbers out. I'm so glad i stopped betting football.

    Pretty much. You are accounting for the juice on top of your bets. If we bet standard juice at +110, that means we bet 110 to win 100 (I realize you know this, as your calculations are accurate). We're betting 100 to win 90.90, so our net profit will actually be less.

    24 wins: Risked 2400, won 2181.60
    13 losses: Risked 1300, lost 1300.

    Total risk 3700, net profit = 881.60

    To earn 88k in a year, we need to gamble 370k, while maintaining the high winning % that you and iga had.

    That's why we can make so many picks on a fun game.

    When I bet on football , I'm only going to bet on one or two games .
