Notes:
* Part of Bill Simmons's 'Teaser' proposition of the week and line may be adjusted outside of 'normal' variance. He links the two picks in order to bring down the odds of one selection. For more details, see here
Experts may pick using their own spreads. We accommodate this automatically, therefore their spread at time of pick may not match the spread at kickoff.
