    Yeah, but taking the line gives you very little return for your buck ...................... go the straight up WIN, if you think they are any sort of chance, its worth the ride. ;)

    You guys have the betting thing sorted. We've gotta go through online bs rather than hit up the shop at the corner.

    So basically, the odd-makers fancy the Broncos by at least a TD & FG. We've played that sorta game before and it entirely depends on the TOP. Being an afternoon game on Sunday the 12th starting at 2:40 MST with these expected weather conditions:

    http://www.weather.com/weather/wxdetail7/USCO0105,

    I reckon that they are expecting more bang-bang type plays from Manning & Co.

    There's another site that I believe will give even higher odds than those above, but it isn't set yet .....................just has the line market up and is giving the Chargers 10 points in at $1.85 .....................screw the points, I'll wait till they offer up head to head betting.

    Nope, I got the Bolts at $3.50 straight up, no points against the Bengals, now the offer is $4.50 with no points .................so basically, put $100 down, win $350 and get your original $100 back also.

    Suddenly confident Chargers could be this year's Cinderella
    Don Banks > Snap Judgments


    INDIANAPOLIS -- Musings, observations and the occasional insight from a wild and eventful NFL wild-card round, while spending a snowy Sunday in Indianapolis. ...

    • No more calls, folks. We have a winner in the NFL's annual playoff-team-no-one-saw-coming contest. We're prepared to report that the San Diego Chargers just tried on Cinderella's shoe and it fit. Feel free to start the party.

    If you're Peyton Manning, you're probably thinking, "It figures.'' Just when you thought Manning, with his tortured playoff history, might finally get a fairly clear path to the Super Bowl in what has been a record-breaking season in Denver, along comes Philip Rivers and his pesky Chargers, a tandem that has tortured him plenty over the years.

    The top-seeded Broncos (13-3) just drew the No. 6-seeded Chargers (10-7) in next week's AFC divisional round, and go ahead and affix the usual labels on San Diego's upstart playoff entry, fresh off an impressive 27-10 first-round road upset of No. 3-seed Cincinnati on Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium. The proverbial "Dangerous Team'' in the tournament? Yep. The clear-cut "Nobody Believed in Us'' club? Without a doubt. They're hot (five straight wins), they've been in playoff mode for more than a month now and they're playing loose and with house money. Every cliche in the book seems to wear well on these streaking Chargers.

    Denver's a 10-point favorite over San Diego heading into next weekend, but get ready to hear all about Manning's mediocre 9-11 career playoff record, his eight one-and-done playoff trips and how the Chargers have blocked his path before. In 2007, when the 13-3 defending Super Bowl champion Colts were the No. 2 seed and No. 3 San Diego was 11-5, it was Rivers and the Chargers (with a clutch relief outing from backup quarterback Billy Volek) who went into the RCA Dome in Indianapolis and dispatched Manning and the favored Colts 28-24.

    The same basic story unfolded in the 2008 playoffs as well, only in more excruciating fashion. The wild-card Colts were 12-4 and the No. 5 seed, but still finished four games better than the No. 4-seeded 8-8 Chargers, who had to win their final four games just to make the playoffs. Sound familiar, Bolts fans? San Diego beat Indy 23-17 in overtime in that game, with Manning never even touching the ball in the extra period.

    When you factor in this year's results, with San Diego being the only team to beat Denver at home -- a 27-20 upset in Week 15 -- the Chargers can't possibly be the outfit Manning and the Broncos were hoping to tangle with next Sunday. San Diego held Denver to its lowest point total of the season in that Thursday night game. Manning's 0-2 record against San Diego in the playoffs means no team has ended more postseasons for No. 18, and the Chargers' most recent playoff win before Sunday came in that 2008 AFC first-round game against Indianapolis.

    Add it all up, and we know where the pressure will fall most heavily next week in Denver: Squarely on the shoulders of Manning and the top-seeded Broncos, who still must deal with the sting of last year's quick exit from the AFC divisional round, a double-overtime loss to Baltimore.

    The Chargers could be a very tough out for Denver, especially since San Diego head coach Mike McCoy was the Broncos offensive coordinator last season and knows how to best game plan against Manning. If you can keep the ball away from Manning, you have a chance to limit the damage, and no team did that better this year than San Diego. Only twice were the Broncos held to fewer than 65 offensive snaps in 2013, and it was against the Chargers both times. In Denver's Week 15 loss to San Diego, the Broncos ran a season-low 54 plays, which was key to the Chargers' victory.

    If the Broncos' magic carpet ride of a season is to continue after next weekend, Manning and Co. are going to have to earn their win against the suddenly confident Chargers, the elite eight playoff team that is playing like it has nothing to lose

    Anyone watching this Ball St vs Arkansas St ballgame ??? :eek:

    OMG .................. quite the ending coming up here, game was all but over 20 seconds ago, but a 15 yd penalty with 2 seconds to go has given Ball St a chance to tie it up and head for OT.

    OK, forget that.................Kick BLOCKED, game over !!!! :roflmao:

    I was saying the odds are less than they were in the Bengals game, but the point spread is more. Kind of a weird tradeoff.

    Well if they are offering $4.50 presently, the odds are longer than the 3 and a half ($3.50/$1) they bet on the Charger/Bengals game ..................the point spread is greater though, but thats just to try and level the money up, obviously, all the money thus far is on the Donks, so the Bookies need to offer a juicier carrot for those who may take a chance on the Charger's........

    Hell, carrot is plenty juicy enough for me with NO points in ............... just up the odds against and I'm all good. ;)

    Unless there are some serious bets on the Donks, I seriously doubt the Chargers price will go higher, but you never know, just gotta play smart and not get overly greedy.

    I thought you said the bengals game was $11

    I figure put 100 on the even with odds, 100 on the points as backup.

    Just watching a replay of the game ..............

    At the play where Hardwina got hurt, I noticed Vincent Brown in the huddle !!! :confused:

    OH DAMN, I forgot he was even available/playing ..............did he get targeted at all for the game ???

    I certainly don't recall seeing him in on a single play. (just noticed he was in on the play where River's scrambled and lobbed the ball to Woody for a 1st down)

    So, to think we can win the way we did today without so much as a yelp out of Gates, Allen, Brown or TuTu, augers well for next week. ;)

    To get the $11 bet, you had to be willing to bet on the Chargers winning by 13 or more points ............ as luck would have it, they shite it in ........ :rolleyes:

    They also offered odds of $10/1 for between 7-12 points and $5.50 for 1-6 points ..........................now you take any of those bets and you LOSE, even though the team wins, thats why I never play the points, farg winning a game but losing your money.......................sucker's bets. :D

    But I did talk with my Bro for some time the night before the game and was giving some serious thought to giving the +13 points a nudge at $100. ;) ('aint hindsight a Bich !!) :cautious:

    Ah, capiche. Hindsight may be a bitch, but no way anyone sane goes for the 13+. Hell they were a garbage time TD away from losing that bet.
