    No they're not, but Vegas odds are extremely accurate as far as predicting final scores.

    So I'm not sure why everyone's all butthurt over a 7 pt spread, we're going on the road (where we don't play well), on a short week, after a big emotional home win, to play a very good team, a team most experts picked to represent the NFC in the Superbowl.
    If there is no Seahawk football in heaven, then we will never die.

    This is what you said earlier:

    Fact: "Sharp" money is the same as "amateur" money

    And this is what the article I posted says:
    Virgin lines are moved exclusively because of money. But it's not necessarily the amount of money wagered that determines when and how much a line is moved. Many bookmakers respect the opinions of various sharp players. A $1000 bet from one of these fellows (and, yes, they are almost exclusively men) can move a line before a $10,000 bet from a less respected individual.

    Much of what you've said is partially correct. I have only responded to the parts where I believe you're wrong.

    Here's the problem with your article: they are selling a service that supports that point of view. They want the money of the reader who wants to be an informed bettor. You just conveniently use the very biased article to make a very minor point.

    Totally agreed. I am going for a long walk off a short pier. I welcome you to join me. Your incessant baiting and twisting is exhausting. How you misinterpret those two paragraphs I will never know. You know beyond a shadow of a doubt that outside of some phraseology that was accidentally misinterpreted, I am 110% on point. Yet the digs continue. I'm done with you fine sir.

    I agree. Before those two I thought it was all some big conspiracy...one where the big casinos and gambling rings get together with the commish of the NFL/NBA/etc and tell them, "Hey, we'll win $150 million if this spread isn't covered by Seattle. So, you need to get on the phone with your boys in stripes (or grey shirts, whatever the outfit may be) and make it happen."

    Suddenly you start seeing drive killing penalty after drive killing penalty on Seattle, while the other team blatantly and egregiously gets away with holding, PIs, etc, etc, until the Seahawks are deflated and demoralized. Nothing seems to work, and if it does, it's taken back over and over through out the game. The end result is applauded—there's no repercussion for the officials involved in swaying the game—and everyone goes on their merry way, except the select few up at the top that rake in the aforementioned $$.

    But, I'm sure that's never happened...ever... especially, not in a super bowl... right? :stirthepot:

    That’s a conspiracy theory…

    It’s really done at “Buffalo Wild Wings Restaurants”…
