  • Pretty great Rick Reilly article on point spread

    Reilly has always been a Broncos' homer. This is pretty good Denver bookies are very worried about the Broncos covering.

    Straight up odds.

    Denver straight up bet $200 to win $1
    Jags straight up bet $1 to win $30

      "great rick reilly article" is an oxymoron

        Typical late career Reilly; mailing in another assignment 20 minutes before the deadline. He turned so much talent into a waste of column inches. Pity.

          Here is another good article, this one deals with how difficult it is to bet the spread.

          Check this out.

          Favorites are 37-36 against the spread. About half the games go over the total, and a little less than half stay under. The spread only matters in about 15% of the games. I’m not sure if that makes picking games easier or harder.

          How can Vegas be that good?

          Here is the rest of the article.

            This article talks about the great collapses of teams that started 5-0.

            Saints and Broncos will not collapse because their QBs will forbid it.


            and yes it is a bleacher report. If you do not like the site do not click on the link

              Do yourself a favor and only bet totals in the nfl...the spreads are horrible and it really is a 'any given sunday league. If you want to win more consistently, leave the nfl and go with college fball lines.

              This week I would bet on those teams that were upset last week and now playing at home.
