    Tigers ML +135 tonite. It might be your last chance to get the Tigers as a dog the rest of the series, get it while you can.

    Ah, BYU is -8, not +8.

    Hmm... that's a tough one now.

    Air Force may pull a KC and after a loss, come home and beat a superior team. I dunno. :icon_shrug:

    one quick question about the baseball betting: I am confused on this +135... When I was in vegas this past summer I saw these lines and was confused on how it works, so i instead focused on the NBA playoffs.

    also I would take the over with San Diego beating St. Louis

    A "plus" bet means you win that amount for every $100 bet. So, +135 means for every $100 you bet, you win $135 dollars.

    A "minus" bet means you must bet that amount to win $100. So, -120 means you need to bet $120 to win $100.

    Look at it like this: If it is +135, that means if you bet $100 on that team, you get $135 (plus your initial $100). If it were -135, you would need to bet $135 to win $100. Make sense?

    so baseball only goes by win or loss not by runs scored?

    They have alternate lines with spreads that you get to pick, as well as over/under.

    I know that the NFL is mostly a crap shoot and that if you're gonna bet to win then college is the way to go... But ya'll know like a million times more about college ball than I do...

    So I was looking at the NFL lines this week and I'm thinking of just taking all the 'dogs. There are a lot of teams that are getting points this week that I think have a very good chance of winning the games.

    ATL +4.5 @ CIN
    SF +16.5 @ CHI
    HOU +3 @ TEN
    BAL +2 @ NO
    AZ +3.5 @ GB

    St.L +9 @ SD
    IND +2.5 @ DEN
    NYJ +1.5 @ CLE


    Am I trippin' or aren't all those games in bold pretty much the toss of a coin?

    Glad we didn't lose you, Dog.

    Chippie, I know that you are emotionally attached to the series, so stop reading this post right here.

    Guys, going into this series the Cards only hope of winning a game was game one because of the layoff, which is why I told BDH that I would be shocked if they won two games. I fully expect the series to be over in 5. Unless Carpenter pitches out of his mind tonite, they stand no chance.

    One thing to worry about is that the weather is going to be freezing. Literally. According to the radio, gametime temps are going to be in the low 30's. It's difficult to hit when you are getting busted inside and it's cold. Those foul balls that rattle your hands hurt like a b-itch. The bonus of the cold is that the starters won't go deep into this, and St. Louis' bully is terrible.

    My prediction is 6-3 Detroit. I am confident enough that I am going to dinner with my brother at a place that doesn't even have TVs. :icon_eek:

    Of course that's why I have mobile internet on my phone.


    :lol:

    Anyhow, GL tonite to everyone betting, and Chippie since I know that you are a woman and couldn't help but be snoopy and read past where I advised you to stop, I will say GL to the Cards in a fake tone but act like I really mean it:

    [insincere]Good luck to your Cardinals tonite, Chispa.[/insincere]

    :lol:
