    I mean i can understand that the home field advantage is -3 but its Dallas in December and Bolts in December. There is no way the Cowgirls should be favored in this game...

    Give me your best reasons:

    I don't think the odds makers take their history in December (or ours for that matter) into account and just go on how they've performed this season and their talent levels.

    Odds aren't who they think will win, but who they think more will bet on. Cowboy fans are generally derelict retards that spend their welfare checks on gambling, booze, and sexy négligé for Betsy (Betsy is a common name for the family cow). Apparently a new line of bovine lingerie was just announced in Dallas and Cowboy fans (not the best savers) have to bet the farm on the 'boys to be able to afford it. Not being all that bright, they don't yet realize they're just throwing their money away.

    So, all of these derelict, retard, boozer hounding, cow loving, redneck bets have influenced the odds.

    That's why, sheesh!

    That's ESPN and NFL for you. Both are madly in love with the Cowboys and always have been!

    ESPN, and the NFL have nothing to do with the point spread. ESPN has been bashing the Cowboys and Wade Phillips all week. Chargers have been getting praise for their December record.

    Cowboys are 5-1 this year at home, Chargers are 5-1 on the road. If it was in San Diego, Chargers would be the favorite by 3.

    Cowboys are 8-4, Chargers are 9-3, both in first place.

    Don’t complain. Take the Good Guys and a field goal.

    3 Point favorites is nothing - it's really just accounting for home field advantage and considering how we're both teams in a similar position - talented on paper but have had our struggles - it makes sense.

    It doesn't bother me one bit! After we win it will be considered an "upset". I don't pay attention to those power rankings and spreads and all that shiat. All that matter is that we score 1 more point than the "Girls" to go to 10-3. Rivers will show Romo the **** how to get it done in December! :tup:

    I've probably been the most negative person on this board concerning this game, but today something just clicked and I've had an epiphany.........the Chargers win in a blowout. Something like 35-17

    For real, only yesterday I was going to pick us to lose on the Thursday podcast, and today I just got this feeling that we are going to rock their ****.:headbang:

    It could be because no weddle, looks like no merriman, and castillo could be out also. Our defense without them didn't exactly shut Cleveland's offense down.

    None the less, I think the chargers play better when people doubt them.

    My gut feeling had Dallas winning this game. But I just couldn't pick them, so I took the Bolts and the +3, and I also took the Bolts straight up in the football pool I'm in.

    Last time this year I went against my gut feeling, the Bolts won :tup:

    Thats what I said. I think its that east coast bias thing!!! PPL always bet on dallas and they always let down big time. Just look at last week and that was the pathetic giants!!! They may be hot on offense but they will get torched by gates rivers sproles and Im betting on jackon to have a big game. They will put a safety or two on gates and 1 on 1 v Jackson means they get pwned!

    Somebody in that pictures is feeling better than any of us. I think this will be a close, high scoring game. If we start slow in the first quarter, we'll liable to be a a real hole.
