Here are the lines for this weeks playoff games:

Sunday, January 22

AFC Championship - 2:00 p.m.

Steelers +3, +160 ML
Broncos -3, -190 ML
over/under 41

NFC Championship - 5:30 p.m.

Panthers +3.5, +150 ML
Seahawks -3.5, -170 ML
over/under 43.5

All I can say is bunnytrdr is going to be damn hard to catch at this point, after registering another huge week. Headsnap also had another nice week to move up to 3rd place. Bwana is still treading water in 2nd place.

We had one elimination this week, as KChiefs1 surrendered his last $111 to the gambling gods. Morphius tried like hell to bow out as well, missing on all his bets and dropping over $13,000. Better luck this week, Morph!

Current Standings

1. bunnytrdr - $63,592
2. Bwana - $44,285
3. headsnap - $40,800
4. Dartgod - $28,126
5. Gaz - $26,213
6. BIG_DADDY - $23,072
7. OldTownChief - $21,609
8. Miles - $16,546
9. Kcwolf - $13,310
10. bkkcoh - $3,813
11. morphius - $3,600

Check your numbers and make sure I have your balance correct. I do make mistakes sometimes.

Good luck this week!

Actually, this will be the third week. We've only had two weeks playoffs and he did bet the regular season finale.

He has informed me he is finished for the season, but I will "officially" drop him next week.

I noticed last week you were voicing concerns that the Seahawks D was weak. I should have responded and given you a heads up that they are actually quite solid with the #2 red zone defense and in the top 5 in scoring defense..

Just don't make the same mistake in SB 40.. ;)

Yep. I'm happy with the fact that I made a profit for the second year in a row. All the other seasons (has this been 4 now?) I busted out before the end.

It's easy to bust out when your trying to win. If you do good in this thread up until the playoffs you most likely will make money in Vegas.

I've bet on football in Vegas twice and lost both times. The first time I had $50 on the Packers -6.5 @ the Lions on Thanksgiving. The Packers are up by 14 late in the game but allow Detroit to rally to tie the game in the last four minutes or so. So they go to over time and I'm basically screwed no matter the outcome because of the f*cking 1/2 point.

A bunch of us go to Reno once or twice every year. A couple years ago I convinced everyone to bet on KC against the Browns. These guys bet a lot of money too, much more than me. They were all pissed off at me until dude took his helmut off on the last play and we kicked a FG to win. The place went absolutely fricken nuts.
