I used to be a huge gambling junky, the last few years I've been gamnling less & less for whatever reasons. One of my past plays in the NFL was to ride the hot team & I would almost always bet on the Pats. ( except against Denver ) I picked a HORRIBLE year to stop gambling ( although I did put 500.00 on the Pats at 10-1 to win the SB when they signed AT this offseason ) If you made a simple $100 bet on the Pats against the spread in week 1 & simply let your winnings ride, you would have an incredible $25,500.00 in winnings after the skins thrashing! This is mindboggling & also slightly depressing to me. Can you imagine what the spreads are going to look like if we manage to beat the Colts this week by 21+ points? I think the biggest NFL spread I've ever seen in my lifetime was 22 points ( undefeated Bills in the Jim Kelley era against a winless Colts team ) I think we might actually see a 30 point spread this year!
