    Hey Slug, copy and paste the "Your Bets" section from the vBookie and we can all compare our success betting against the books.

    Then you need to bet it.

    Huard beat the Chargers last year, and the Chargers are not worthy of any confidence at this point. What you call 75% I call a coin flip.

    Results in SD....

    2006: SD-20 KC-9
    2005: SD-28 KC-20
    2004: SD-24 KC-17
    2003: SD-24 KC-28

    Not a single one would have covered 12.5.

    Best of luck to you, though.

    That's not how I would actually bet. Because vBookie isn't real money, I just go wild with the betting and take huge risks I wouldn't normally do.

    That's cool... I'm actually 8-6 (1 O/U, 13 ATS) in the vBookie betting the NFL right now. Seriously it's great that you're putting so much thought into this and I would recommend trying to play the vBookie like it's real and play out all your ideas and see how you do. Score a bunch of a boltcash and we'll start tailing your picks. :yes:

    I agree Slug. Wait until the Chargers show some signs of being a complete team before you bet on them to beat ANYONE by double-digits.

    They already have beaten a team by double-digits at home.

    Unless you think the Chiefs are better than the Bears.

    Huard had an OL he could depend on last year.

    This year, with no OL or enough decent WR, he's not playing anywhere near as good. Neither is Larry.

    If you told people before the season started that both Larry Johnson and Tony Gonzalez would be held without TDs after 3 weeks, they would have laughed in your face. Well, that's exactly what happened.

    The Chiefs have already lost by double-digits twice this year. Both times on the road.

    My thinking is that division rivalries tend to be close.

    And what about the Donnie Edwards factor ??? :icon_eek:

    All Donnie means is that we get to see our guys drag him for half a first-down.

    I think I've only made two or three regular season NFL plays this year, but my leans have been pretty solid.

    And the Chargers could actually play D last year. History proves that this game is traditionally close fought/one score type.

    What is that old saying about putting your money where your mouth is? If you are sure that you would light the gambling world ablaze with your knowledge vs. what the books know, go baby go. My guess is that you would be humbled and stop acting like a know-it-all fairly quickly.

    Easy there EC, Slug isn't be disrespectful, just expressing youthful exuberance. Plus he nailed leisure and me last weekend on Buffalo.

    I didn't mean for that to come across as harsh.

    Sorry, sluggo if that cam across as harsh, I like reading both sides of thought on games.
