As of now there are 10 of us in the Intermediate division. 5 from Kansas, 5 form Missouri. Since we will all most likely NOT make the cut for this year's team challenge, why not bring a little team aspect to this event? I'm going to put 10.00 on the KS side this Sunday.
The avg rating for the MO team (of the players who are currently rated) is 888.5.
The avg rating for the KS team (of the players who are currently rated) is 844.5. or a difference of 44.
Last year in the Intermediate division of this event, each stroke averaged a 8.56 point round rating difference.
Based on the current math, the per-round spread is 5.14 in favor of the Missouri side.
Team Rd1 Spread Rd2 Spread Final Spread
Kansas +5.14 +5.14 +10.28
Missouri +5.14 +5.14 +10.28
I guess you can bet on whatever you want, either round or the total. I've done the same calculations for The Rosedale Open 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.
