This was a trap. If you do some further analysis, Edmonton ended up winning 7 games so it truly did prove to be a trap. Now at the end of the season, in a playoff match, it just so happens that Ricky Ray goes against his former team. Obviously from the beginning oddsmakers (aka Randall) had no confidence that they would go over 7.5. Yes, this was just the regular season and it has nothing to do with the playoffs but you know Edmonton was not going to win this game putting them over the 7.5 total. Then the line comes out as +3.5. Another trap. There was never a doubt that Toronto would win this thing.
Now this is how it's done folks. You can question my thinking all you want but if you did and went against me you would be poor now while I just used house money and took Randall for a ride.
Ugh, I seriously had to read this like 3 times to make sense of it. Are you saying that a Edmonton win yesterday would have put them over the 7.5 season win total? I don't think that's true.
