What is an almost upset?

Please help. Andy always has one, but I have no idea what it is. Thanks :slight_smile:

It’s a match up where he believes the clear underdogs will win the game.

I think(?) that the underdog just has to cover the spread or win for Andy to consider it a success.

Why do you think he calls it an “almost upset”?

Because the team he picks doesn’t have to win the actual game. The team that he picks only has to cover the spread set by Vegas. So if the spread is 7 points, but the team he picks only loses by 3, that is a successful “almost upset” even though the team lost the actual game.

Thanks man!
