I'm confused about where these numbers come from. For example, it looks to me that covers.com has Oakland at -110

And thevYankees at -111

No - those #'s are way off, not sure what you were looking at. Yanks are much bigger favorites. A's were clear dogs.

The odds are live. I just have to pick a time, post em in here, and then we'll go with what I post. Apologize I didn't do that earlier this AM. If you guys don't see me in here, feel free someone to just post odds.

That is the odds to bet the over or under the total runs in the game. As you'll notice, most are around -110.

The home team (bottom team) line list the odds for the game. If the home team is -145, regular 10% vig (it is kinda pointless for us to use vig for this pool), the visitor would be +125.
