Just absurd.

I was down 80% 2 weeks ago on the year thanks to the Bungals and Jets, currently up 40%.

It's a joke right now.

Good story. :salute:

I really feel for the Vegas bookies. :nanner: :lmfao:

Three games yesterday decided by 10 points or less. And most books had SF +3 so that game was a push.

I said yesterday that it had to be a very bad Sunday for the bookmakers.

Freaking Favre int killed my week, after Boise St. pulled me 1-1 on Saturday. Just didn't have the heart to bet anymore after watching the Browns and the that lost bet INT!

Might actually start seeing some "NL"s on these games without the typical major injuries or weather situations?

Great time to be living in Vegas for early line Monday mornings

I've never bet on sports myself, but Simmons has talked a lot in his podcast about how vegas is taking it on the chin because the good teams keep covering over the terrible teams and Vegas has to keep pushing the lines higher and higher. I'm not sure if that makes much sense.

He also says "three team tease" a lot and seems to be very happy about them this year. I just assume that if the gamblers are happy, Vegas is not.

Brutal.

I started to read The Odds by Chad Millman, but I just couldn't get through it. His writing style was way too bland and dry for me.
