100 PLAYS ARE REQUIRED FOR FINAL RANK STANDING TIES COUNT
In baseball, instead of a point spread there is a money line. Think of the money line in terms of how much money you would have to bet to win $100. If the money line is 150, you would have to bet $150 on the favorite to win $100. If you bet on the favorite and win, you will receive $250 (your bet of $150 plus your winnings of $100). To bet on the underdog, you would need to bet only $100 to win but you would only receive $240 because the house takes its commission from the winners of the underdog bets. Generally the commission is around $.10 for the money line bets. The over/under number is used as in other sports (11/10).
The run line is now included in the grading process.
