    (*) stands for best bets. I'm taking Cinci, Chi, and Ariz as mine. Let's pick 3 a week. Also, I know you picked the Steelers just like me on Thursday, so you can add that one on for symmetry.

    Hey, PonyExpress and ClosingTime... good work.

    12 for Pony and me, 10 for Closing. However, Pony got three out of three 'best bets', Closing got 2 of 3 and I got only 1 of 3.

    In the games where we were unanimous we called correctly 6 of 7.
    Of the remaining 9, the 'majority opinion' was right 7 times - gold stars for the lone pickers of Indy (ClosingTime) and Minnesota (me).

    We should keep doing this.

    It looks to me like I went 11-5, 2-1 on best bets. A good start, blind luck no doubt. In Vegas you break even at 54% success rate, so it's something to keep an eye on.

    Hey guys. You probably don't remember me. I'm the football-illiterate girl!

    Would it be a pain in the butt to have one of you guys explain ^^^^ all that to me?:confused:


    I owe you for putting up with me!

    Anything for a lady.
    The Patriots are favored by 6 point agaisnt the Jets, so the line is NE (-6) vs the Jets. Or it could be written as Jets (+6) vs NE. So if you pick NE, they have to win by more that 6 points for you to win the bet. If they win by exactly 6 points it is a draw and if the win by fewere than 6 points or lose outright you lose.
    Now show us your tits.

    incorrect spread

    Hey PonyE and ClosingT, we have a mistake in our lines.

    Minnesota are 1.5 point favourites, not 1.5 dogs, versus Carolina.

    Shall we leave our calls at the stated line in Pony's original list, or alter them?

    For me, it's such a tough call that I'm going with whoever gets the 1.5 points.

    Re: incorrect spread

    Stay with the lines. The Sports Guy's column, published friday, has Minn as 2 point dogs.

    Rams at -3 is a lock.

    Well if Vegas did their jobs right, the chances are 1:1. I think Houston didn't look too bad last week and the Colts looked awfully rusty. 13.5 is a lot of points.

    I think Indianapolis will cover, more likely than not, but in terms of actually betting I wouldn't touch it with a bargepole. 13.5 points is too many to feel comfortable with.

    I've taken the under in that game though.

    An interesting trend league wide in Week 1 was unders across the board. Very low scoring, ineffectual offense. We may finally be seeing defensive adjustments to the Ty LAw rule in full effect.

    Pony, this happens most seasons. By in large defenses are more together early in the season than the offenses. That is part of the reason I like Houtson +13.5. REmeber last year the Colts for the first half of the season were playing in some tight games, not blowing teams out. Part of that was a slight move to a more ball control offense, a switch they would have been wise to stick with.
