    That's what most are saying. That 10 points is a lot right now.

    You never know though.

    That's why MTL has part of his life savings on St Louis +10

    9.5 points is a lot for an NFL game... even Pittsburgh is only giving up 8.5. Can't say as I blame them.

    Crisco picked the Queefs last week.


    Remember, they are picking against the spread, and 9.5 is a pretty big number to cover.

    And that's why MTL is the real douchebag.

    If you lose money this week, is it going to turn your world upside down again? Are you going to huff and puff and mope and question why life is worth living. I certainly hope so.

    I've never placed a bet, but I know I would stay away from that spread.

    Don't worry I have so many boots this week that I'm sure I'll have enough money by the end of the week to bribe Thumper to ban you from this forum :icon_toast:

    Agree....9.5 points is a lot for playing the Rams with defensive injuries that we have.

    IMO its just the point spread their picking against.

    Betting on a team to not cover the spread isn't really betting against them. Now, if he bet Rams M/L then yeah, that's betting against the Chargers, because M/L is straight up winner-loser.

    But, Chargers -10 is a tough one right now, especially the way we are banged up a little on defense.

    I think the Chargers will win it, but not by 10 points. The Rams have too good of an offense for that. I think the Bolts win by 7.

    as a fan i would never bet against my team m/l or not just one of the unwritten rules to being a fan that you just don't break,you might as well put lt on the cover of madden 07' if you want to do that. if i were to bet on this game at caliente or something i would bet my life on the over.

    Word. I think the only way we are gonna win this game is by outscoring the Lambs..... because they are definitely going to put up points..... but so are we. We have a better D than them and we are playing at home.... so the advantage should go to us..... but 9.5 or 10 points is a lot..... I see us winning:

    Bolts 41
    Lambs 34

    You know what's wack about that? At the top of that page click on "Harmon Forecast" and see who he chose to win that game on his forcast. He picked Chargers 31, Rams 20. Guess he's hedging his bets. Either way he can say he was right. What a doofus.

    Anyone else get the suspicion that our second TE Manumaleuna is going to have a big game versus the Rams?

    I'd forgotten that, Slug...that's a real possibility, altho I'd preferta see him knock abuncha his ex-teammates on their asses whilst he's blockin for LT or the restuv'em.

    Betting on the Rams to cover is the ultimate sucker bet. The Bolts had one bad game and everyone's jumping off the bandwagon. The defense is going to be out to destroy some people this week. And the offense is just going to keep rolling.

    Bolts 31, Rams 13

    IMO, the most comfortable way you'll win $$$ betting this game.

    Take the OVER 45.5.

    Chargers will win 31-23.

    Me too. I quit betting on the Chargers several years ago because my heart got in the way of my good sense. I bet on other games but not the Bolts. It took me many years of losing money on dumb bets before I learned my lesson. (I'm a little slow).

    If I had to bet it though, I'd bet the Bolts to cover that spread - they'll be fired up with emotion to prove the critics wrong this week, just like the Chiefs were last week.
