I'd take the under.

I was thinking of that but it'd be my pessimism betting.

I see San Diego in the 25-35 range, and it was a question of whether we can put up 10-15+.

Decided to roll the dice on a few parlays... details as follows:

22/10/2006 SD Chargers @ KC Chiefs SD Chargers -5.0 To Run
22/10/2006 NE Patriots @ BUF Bills NE Patriots -5.0 To Run
22/10/2006 GB Packers @ MIA Dolphins GB Packers +5.0 To Run
22/10/2006 CAR Panthers @ CIN Bengals CAR Panthers +3.0 To Run
22/10/2006 DEN Broncos @ CLE Browns DEN Broncos -4.5 To Run
22/10/2006 MIN Vikings @ SEA Seahawks SEA Seahawks -6.5 To Run
22/10/2006 JAX Jaguars @ HOU Texans Under 40.5 To Run
22/10/2006 GB Packers @ MIA Dolphins Under 40.0 To Run
22/10/2006 WAS Redskins @ IND Colts Under 48.5 To Run

Lot of luck (so to speak) needed, but it'll be worth it. Stake: $1. Win: $300.

And then my "safe" 5-team parlay...

22/10/2006 SD Chargers @ KC Chiefs SD Chargers -5.0 To Run
22/10/2006 NE Patriots @ BUF Bills NE Patriots -5.0 To Run

I like SD by 5 or more and the over, but the first to punt is a total crap-shoot, don't ya think? I guess that's why they call it gambling.

Odds of me being on my 5th Maker's Mark by halftime? Excellent!

That's why I put it only in my 3-ways. ($1 to win $5... ends up returning my overall stakes for the day, heh.)

Still, I'll take my chances. I see the Chiefs punting early and often, whereas I don't see the Chargers punting often and not to start the game.

It's a crapshoot. But not as much as some of the others which are far worse (first coach to call timeout, to challenge, etc.).
