re Super Bowls odds & betting lines

Postby SkinsJock » Sun Feb 02, 2014 2:45 pm

I don't know why but I thought the Seahawks were 'favored' late this week - shows what I know :lol:

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/eye-on-foo ... -on-sunday

despite the claims of some here, the Seahawks and the Broncos 'opened' as basically a pick-em game - after a couple of days, the Broncos edged in front as the favorite - earlier this week, because so many in the media were favoring the Seahawks, I thought the betting line/odds must have changed to the Seahawks

seems the Broncos are still the favorite :twisted:

Go Broncos & Countertrey
Getting our QB back will help a lot but we still have a lot of issues to address

Players and coaches need to believe that they can be successful - they are not playing with that attitude - big changes are coming

HAIL


Currently 50-41

Not to mention Yahoo!, The Sporting News, and USA Today.

I guess you couldn't hear the Internet screaming ...

Seahawks open as favorite, then point spread flips Denver's way as early money comes in on Broncos

Then there are these major casinos that posted before all your cherry picked sources (both of 'em, which are webites, not books).

These are the opening lines of every book I could find that posted an opening line before 9:59 PM on January 19th. No cherry picking whatsoever.

Here's another tidbit. The Chief Line Originator is William Hill. This is where all the big casinos go for THE OPENING LINE.

“I can’t tell you who the winner’s going to be, but I can put a number out there for you, that might draw some two-way action and is somewhere in the ballpark.” said Nick Bogdanovich, the director of trading at William Hill U.S. “It’s what we do. We do it year in and year out, and you develop a feel for it.”

They know that square money is enthralled by favorites and falls hard for teams that have done a lot for them lately. The Broncos, for instance, not only covered against New England, but looked good doing it. It’s part of the reason Denver is currently the 2 ½-point favorite even though oddsmakers opened with the Seahawks — a team they believe is better — as a 2- to 2 ½-point favorite.


Please check your PMs for further clarity including your mis-quoting of me where you incorrectly assert I posted something I did not.

I'm finding it hard to be interested in this game. Feels like football began to get stale about a month ago. Pitchers and catchers report in about two weeks.

Well let me just say Redskins SuperBowl champs next year. We can have a team like Seattle just got to shore up the line and a good draft for defense. Congrats to Seattle. But its ours next year.

Only one that was worse that I can remember was the giants ravens snooze fest back in 99(?).
I know he got a pretty good zip on the ball. He has a quick release. . . once I seen a coupla' throws, I was just like 'Yeah, he's that dude.'"
