LOL, that's cool, whatever gets you aroused.



No, not that vig. The sports betting vig…the bigger one.

OK, just for fun, any predictions on which WEEK 1 game will have the largest SPREAD ?

Gotta think the games with the 2-14 JETS and 1-15 JAGS would be in the running, although they both face teams well under 0.500 last year.

I’d think the Ravens would be pretty big favorites over the Raiders.

As of now the Lions are +7.5 and Bears are +7. In the running are the Steelers and Cowboys at +6.5 and the Browns at +6.

The Jets are only +4 and the Jags are FAVORED by 3 over the Texans.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

The Saints are favorites? I guess my Week 1 is likely to include “Packers +” somewhere in it.

That young up-and-comer, Tom Brady, played last season on a fully-torn MCL, according to media outlets.

D'oh ! Not much of a sports bettor, so it didn't even occur to me that the lines were already up.

I would expect that to be less than a touchdown.

More than a Field Goal.

I guess we are trying to qualify where we should be making quantitative predictions: Ravens -5.5
