What should it be? Bills favored after losing to the Bengals? Yes the eagles collapsed but they have more talent and more importantly have a bigger betting market (more notoriety and fans) so of course they are going to be favored. Why do you think the Yankees lines are always so ridiculous? Casual betters bet with their hearts and bet to make things more fun...Vegas makes money off of these people and sets the lines as such.

Believe me I understand all too well how Vegas works and should have put a :D in my original post,but then again,even when I do add a smiley and am busting your balls you still tend to get defensive.

As for your original question,no,I wasn't implying the Bills should be favored,but a 6 point swing (i.e. generally the home field being worth 3) was a fine example of Vegas being Vegas and thus proving your point about casual bettors.

And for the record,yes I do some gambling on the NFL and no way in hell would I touch this particular game.

What are you smiling about? Agreeing the game was a tough one to bet? I told you I wouldn't touch that game with real money.

A few times a season, Vegas just throws a gift out there, and I treated this line as one.

I wish I had put more than $1,000 on the ML in the gambling challenge.
