PLEASE NOTE: In the Tribune's U-Pickem game, you are picking games against the spread, not straight up. The team that is favored will have will have a number in parentheses next to its name. If you pick the favorite, it has to win the game by more than the predicted point spread to be a correct pick. Conversely, if you pick the underdog, you are correct if it wins or loses by less than the predicted point spread. If the favored team wins by the exact amount of the predicted point spread, that game is considered a tie and no points for the pick are assigned.
