    Just wondering. Does Vegas think that BB is going to sit players? I know they are waiting to see who the Colts will play, if they play anyone, this weekend.

    The more intriguing thing is the Pats are pre-listed as the underdog:

    That's probably because they are the road team. The home team gets 3 points automatically, so since their isn't a line yet, that maybe that's why they are listed as a dog.

    it's all about tommy

    i suspect the big boys out there won't put a line on the game until they see how brady is listed tomorrow.
    if patriots are underdogs it means somebody thinks brady won't play.

    Yahoo's default is home team is favored until a line comes up so it means nothing.

    I got Pats -3.5 -120 on Olympic sportsbook but didn't have much funds available there so I'm looking to get some more down if I can. More interested in a halftime line if it stays under 3. Pats would love to get the starters 3 quarters of play and then rest em so halftime looks solid to me. Haven't seen a halftime line yet. Grab whatever you can early as this line is only going up and you'll be laying 6 or 7 by Monday. BB already said this is a "Regular Game" undelined and bold.

    BTW, Vrabel is going to be interviewed by Dan Patrick on ESPN radio in a moment. You can stream it on espnradio.com
