  • I was just about to make a post about this. I am literally on a plane flying home from Vegas. I flew in to Vegas last night to make some investments on Seattle. Due to my late arrival and early departure I was only able to check out three Sportsbooks. The Tropicana and the Palms each had Seattle at 10-1 and 5-1 to win the Conference. The Orleans had Seattle at 10-1 to win it all.

    That line movement has to be 90%Sharp money because Seattle has never been a public side, although that will change. Soon.

  • There's still £44 available at 14/1 on Betfair, for any of you non-US based punters. Given the state of the AFC 20/1 on the Ravens looks good too if the Seahawks happen to fluff their lines.

    I am always leery of letting my money sit in an offshore book for 10 months given the industry's volatility.

    Betfair's probably the safest one for 2 reasons. Firstly, it's German. Secondly, there is no bookmaker to go bust. Punters bet against each other rather than betting against the house.

    Good to know-thanks for the tip. Does Betfair have walk-ups in Germany proper??

  • Wait, is this good for the Seahawks or bad? ...like with Vegas having a lot to lose on the sharps betting on the Seahawks at 12-1 to move it that much, will the NFL use it's vegas/refree connection to screw us out of the win again, ala. XL? *adjusts tinfoil hat*

    Solo favorite...I like the sound of that! ;)

    Just messing with you guys. :)

  • I can't, I've been burned! I hope the team chemistry stays the same, while I hope our deficiencies are addressed with each of the first three rounds of the draft. But my reptilian brain cannot overcome the emotional lows of 2006 like expectations. 2006 was a helluva year but not making it to the superbowl when you expect to sucks.

    What a freagin sweet game we took to the bears though after that horrid beatdown they gave us earlier that year!

    Its good. As pointed out by CBS, the house stood to lose a ton if the Seahawks pulled off the win in XL due to the odds being something like 80 to 1.
