    Do you plan on deciding on $ amounts after the results of the games?

    If you’re going to fail, fail spectacularly.

    Not that I'm complaining, but how did you calculate my parlay winnings with 2 pushes?

    Only one push, right?

    It becomes a parlay of two games

    Have to go back and check scores again but I thought I pushed 2.

    EDIT: Yep, you're right... when I looked up Penn State score somehow I was looking at the Penn St/Iowa score from a couple weeks ago (17-12) and thought I'd pushed at -5.
