9) All plays will be graded per the 11/10 Vegas Rules; -1.10 plays for losses and +1.00 plays for wins. This means a 7-unit play that loses will be graded as -7.70 units. A 7-unit play that wins will be graded as +7.00 units. If a pick pushes, then you will not lose any points, nor will you gain any, you will be given a tie status. The breakdown for plays is as follows:
