Anybody who was riding my coattails can probably just rip up their tickets now. I think I'd have a lot of hope if I picked the opposite way on each game.

I just saw that Detroit was a favorite. They wouldn't be a favorite against a pee-wee team in my book!

Again, I just love ragging on this pathetic home team of mine :-D
DUHHIIIIIIIII HEARD THAT!

Well that is just silly that us non Nevada people can't play. I assume this doesn't exist at any online sportsbooks.



The problem with trying to do this online is that they will update the lines that you can bet online as the market moves. The advantage is in that in Vegas, the cards are made available on the Thursday before the weekend and the lines are carved in stone on the card. As the market betting lines continue to move as Sunday kickoff approaches, you can still bet the line on the card and pick whichever side is now in your favor.

With the online sites, the betting lines are never carved in stone and continually adjust. Even the casinos here in Vegas do that if you try to use their online app to put the bet in. The advantage is in the paper card.

In certain cases where the line move is extreme (like with the Seahawks game this week), the casinos will sometimes no longer allow you to bet that game, even though it is still showing on the card.

It may be possible to find options online where the line you can bet is half a point off from the market line, which is done to prevent ties. If there are enough options to get half a point off the key numbers like 3 or 7, you might be able to create an advantage online.
