what is the difference between  EVEN IF AND EVEN THOUGHT
thanks

Even if you are sick, you come to the  class.

You come to the class even though you are sick.

even though you are sick , you come to the class.
Both even if and even though mean despite the fact that. Even if can also mean despite the possibility that.
Even though is used in the past, for specific events that happened in spite of some adverse condition.

The festival went on as scheduled, even though it was raining
Even though he was sick Monday, he came to class.
In the past, "even if" can be used in a more general sense, "as a rule" and not referring to a specific event.
Even it he was sick, he would go to class.

Even if also tends to be used for future circumstances. There is emphasis on the fact that we don't know if the adverse condition will actually happen or not.
The festival will be held even if it is raining.
You must come to class even if you are sick.

Please English teacher help me, in this case, I dont know what to put

They are up by 30 point now ----->

If the opposing team scores - scored 10 straight points, the home team's coach will- would call a time out even if- though they are- were-would still be up by 20 points.

Even though- if the team would still be up by 20 points, the coach would call time out if the opposing team scores- scored 10 straight points.

Even though-if the home team would still be up by 20 points if the opposing team scored-scores 10 straight points, the coach would call a time out.

too complicated for me
Team A is ahead of Team B 30 points now ----->

If team B scores10 straight points, team A's coach will call a time out even though they are ahead by 20 points. (You read the coach's game plan and know exactly what he will do.)

If team B scored 10 straight points, team A's coach would call a time out even though they are ahead by 20 points. (You are guessing what team A's coach is going to do.)
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
I am confused

which is correct? Is it the conditional? is the conditional 1) Even though they would still be ahead by 20, the coach would call a time out. or is the bold the conditional 2) Even though they are ahead by 20, the coach would call a time out if team A scored 10 points.
What is the Even though clause then if its not the conditional?

1 Even though they would still be ahead by 20, the coach would call a time out.
2 Even though they are ahead by 20, the couch would call a time out.
3 If team B scored 10 straight points, team A's coach would call a time out even though they would still be ahead by 20 points. (You are guessing what team A's coach is going to do.)
AlpheccaStarsEven though is used in the past, for specific events that happened in spite of some adverse condition.
Do you mean that "even though" is used ONLY in the past ?

I found an example where it's used in the present tense as well." Even though he's a millionaire, he lives in a very small flat".http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Why is_the_expression%27even_though%27_incorrect_grammar

Another example : Even though she is very old, she runs fast. http://www.myenglishpages.com/site_php_files/grammar-lesson-concessions.php
