As the season rapidly approaches, many football fans will be looking forward to playing fantasy football. But other football fans will be playing a slightly different game, called playing the spread, it is a competition that looks at predicting game outcomes. The Gents are very please to welcome the author of Tailgate to Heaven, Adam Goldstein who will introduce us to the spread and why we should paly it and will be writing a weekly piece for the Gridiron Gentlemen all about this alternative to Fantasy football. So Adam, it is over to you.
Since my Dolphins’ loving friend showed me the “Spread” back in 2008 I have become hooked and I play it every year with 80 New Yorkers who I have never met. But what is the spread? And why do I prefer it to Fantasy Football?
