As of now there are 25 of us in the Intermediate division. 12 from Kansas, 9 from Missouri and 4 from unlisted states. Since we will all most likely NOT make the cut for this year's team challenge, I'm going to put 10.00 on the KS side having the lower total score for the tournament. If the numbers are still disproportionate the day of the tournament, I'll bet on the lower average score.
The avg rating for the MO team (of the players who are currently rated) is 883.
The avg rating for the KS team (of the players who are currently rated) is 858.833 . or a difference of 24.167
Last year in the Intermediate division of this event, each stroke averaged a 10.27 point round rating difference.
I'll put the spread at 2 strokes per round or 4 strokes for the tournament.
Team Rd1 Spread Rd2 Spread Final Spread
Kansas +2.35 +2.35 +4.7
Missouri -2.35 +2.35 +4.7
I guess you can bet on whatever you want, either round or the total. I've done the same calculations for Kan-U-WYCO if anyone is interested.
I probably don't need to say this, but anyone betting against their own team will not count and should be taken outside and beaten.
