Re: OT: Raider CB ASOMUGHA A FREE AGENT
Pats will have more critical needs than a 2nd Pro Bowl level CB. that would be awesom sure, but they are likely going to need some help on O Line and perhaps on D Line, those needs will be more pressing
I mean, it happens more than your post would apply.
I believe the Pats/Giants SB fell all the way from -14 to -11
this week the line on the Chiefs opened at +1 +115 (at Pinnacle) and has fallen all the way to +3 +104
I got Jets +2.5 -110 earlier this week, by kickoff last night it went to +2...
if you think Baltimore is just slightly better than Pittburgh, it doesn't make any sense that they have A LOT better chance of advancing. the bye is a gigantic edge for Pittburgh. there is close to a 40% chance Baltimore doesn't even win this weekend

the only teams that worry me are the teams who could throw for 450 yards against us and win 42-35 or something. if we have a weakness that can be exploited, it's the secondary
(yeah yeah we have looked better the last 2 weeks, but 1 was vs an awful Jets pass offense and the other was in a...
Traditionally, sports betting has been assumed to following a market clearing model where the sportsbook essentially just acts as a middleman, matching bets for a fee. More recent research on sports markets has challenged that idea, suggesting that sportsbooks may act to "take positions" to...
lolol. that "point here or there" is how professional sports bettors make there living. you are trivializing the single most important thing in profitable sports betting - line shopping
no - sports betting over the phone (and then internet) has been illegal for decades in the US. you don't...
umm, likewise? do you not understand they are derivatives of the same thing?
do you really think that when a point spread of -3 -110 moves to -3 -120 the moneyline stays the same?
yeah I worked at one for 5 years.
no, you don't. books are distinct businesses. they each have 2 goals...
you have no idea what you're talking about - when 1 moves, the other moves
no, not always. they sometimes take positions
sportsbook.com is far, far bigger than any Vegas sports book. in fact it's probably bigger than all of them combined
Re: Schedule Analysis
putting a "W" next to a team you are favored to beat, and adding those up, is a very flawed way to project wins. it treats being a very small favorite (say, home again the Jets) and being a huge favorite (say home against Cleveland) as the same. obviously thats not right...
you still answered your own question in your first post.
assume for the sake of argument, that coaches down 4 make better decisions b/c they need a TD. it doesn't even matter, b/c teams down 4 points come back to tie or win less often than teams down 3 points. you can make correct, aggresive...
the drive ended with the Chargers having 2 TO's and over 20 seconds left. the clock wasn't really the factor you are making it out to be...the Chargers had plenty of time to do whatever they wanted, they just threw incomplete 3 times.
the play calling was aggresive and their clock management...
