Wifey said she saw add for shovelers paying $20 an hour.



Is she hinting that you should go back to work?

Did you guys see that Bronco's game last night? That was the most snow I remember seeing at a football game in years. This picture was from the start of of the game the snow was falling hard during the game.

I saw parts of it. Few people cheer as loud as I didÖ. ďGo underĒ!!!!

Weather forecast for Orchard Park shows heavy snow until Saturday. Clear Sunday. Just means that local officials will have to work hard for the fans to be able to get there. The field itself should be easily cleared. Unless forecast changes. Wifey said she saw add for shovelers paying $20 an hour.

I heard the game was moved to Detroit.

$20? Back in the 1990s I think they got $5 and a free ticket.

. Caesars has refunded my under bet. Iím very disappointed that the game was moved. The weather is supposed to be fine day of game. Just the area will still be plowing out. Oh well. Iíll be switching to betting the oversÖ.

They were probably worried the Cleveland team would not be able to get in on Saturday morning.

At one point late in the game, TCU had a 92% chance of losing to Baylor (according to ESPN Analytics) and came back to win again.

TCU was a 67% underdog vs Oklahoma,
had a 68% chance of losing to Kansas midway into the game,
had a 96% chance in the 4th quarter of losing to Oklahoma State,
had a 91% chance mid game of losing to Kansas State,
had a 61% chance in the 2nd quarter of losing to West Virginia,
had a 64% chance in the 3rd of losing to Texas Tech,
and had a 75% chance early on of losing to Texas.

What are the odds that TCU would win 8 out of these 8 games?

. 100%!
But seriously, I donít want to do the math, but 10,000-1 against from the low point of each game?

I was watching. When Baylor had the ball their coach went into usual college football Cro Magnon mode. Running the ball into the defenders forcing TCU to use their timeouts but getting the ball back only needing a field goal, with a full minute and a half remaining. At least one of the announcers called out the Baylor head coach.

Imagine what would happen if TCU played a good team.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

"Mattress Mack" cashed in 75 million on the World Series, including $30 million from Ceasars. Has anyone ever hit casinos that hard over as sports bet?

According to an article in the Review Journal, NO this is the biggest legal sports betting outcome.

How does Caesars handle a 30 million dollar loss? Is it a hiccup or does the sports book not show a profit for the quarter? Year?
link to original post

Penn Entertainment CEO Jay Snowden on the company's Nov. 3 earnings call similarly warned about the company's profitability in light of McIngvale's bet via Penn's sportsbook Barstool ó and urged listeners to root for the Philadelphia Phillies instead. "I think if Mattress Mack doesn't hit, we'll be profitable in Q4," Snowden said then. "If he does, then it'll probably be closer to break-evenish."

Penn paid out $10 million. Iíve never heard of Penn and Iím only guessing Caesars is a significantly larger operation
Itís all about making that GTA

Looking at snow depth maps while computers down at work. Did they like just decide to build the stadium at the biggest snowfall point?

I'd imagine there was a reason why the land was vacant and cheap. Just like when Wynn was able to scoop up the land for the Mirage dirt cheap since no one else wanted to build next to a volcano.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.
