    This sucks for me because I am still alive in the DK $1 million survivor and have the Zags tonight.


    Oh well, maybe these clowns will be right for once.
    I dont think any of the hosts have every claimed to be "professional handicappers' or even say how good of handicappers they are.

    They just offer their opinions

    I think the people they consider handicappers are the people who contribute to the PSW.

    Yeah, I'm just talking about how a consensus forms and it is usually based on horrible takes.

    Yeah, I wonder how going to OT will impact Gonzaga late in the game (if at all.)

    There are 885 people left in the contest but some of those have already used both teams. Based on looking at the pick distribution and guessing the % of people who have used both teams, winning tonight gets about $3,500 which is nice for a free contest.

    The game turned out about as expected given the mush level on Gonzaga. As always, when guys who work for a casino are telling you to bet a game the way the house would want you to, don't listen!

    Anyway, at the tip of the game, there were only 101 contestants left in the survivor. I'm shocked at how many people think get eliminated at the final game is a strategy.
    Had Gonzaga won, I would have won $12,000 (had I known that, my bets on Baylor would have been much larger). There were only 17 people who had Baylor and they all won $58,823.
