    How is that, disrespect?
    It has nothing to do w/ who they think will win.

    But it has everything to do with who the average better thinks is going to win, does it not?

    That only changes who's disrespecting us, not whether or not there is any.

    That being said, I like it. :yes:

    I love it.

    Don't let these guys start getting full of themselves, keep that chip firmly on their shoulders.

    Really means nothing. The guys in Vegas set the points spreads based on homefield, weather, and most importantly, how to get the money rolling in on both sides.

    San Diego would be a 6-7 point favorite at home, but they are giving you Tennessee -3 because of A.

    Homefield (-3)
    West to East travel (-2)
    Short week (-3)

    They are probably throwing in another point or two due to the weather not exactly being Mission Valley, and there is your 8-9 point variation, yielding Tennessee at -3.

    They know they are getting heavy money on SD, and that spread may come down.

    San Diego is 6-1 on the road. They don't need Mission Valley weather.

    Not saying they do, but just offering an opinion on why they set the number where they did.

    It seems the opinion of the guys in Vegas in taken into account when the odds are set on this side of the Atlantic. The Chargers are priced at 6/4 here, or 1.5 to 1 while the Titans are 4/7 or approx 0.5 to 1 favs.

    Needless to say I laughed when I saw the odds and come about 4.30am Irish time on St Stephens Day (the day after Christmas) I should have my plane fare to the Superbowl!!!:abq2::icon_toast:
