Sorry if I wasn't clear, when I say 'spread' I mean abs(spread).  Porky came up with this idea of betting toward what the 2H spread *should be* vs what it actually is.

Don't have a great example for today but see if this makes sense:
Eg: jets -3 Indy 
(21-6) -3= 12. So to get back to the Jets winning by 3, the 2nd have line should be Indy -12, instead it was pick em.   So adding 0 to our equation, you get 12.   I personally don't play that b/c it hits about 58% of the time in pros, porky would take it b/c his number is usually 10.

Interesting analysis shows the bet appearing to be counter productive.... I.e. the worse line you get, the better propensity to take the bet.  But I believe the theory is that if Vegas is confident enough to place that much disparity from its opening line, then that team warrants a wager to cover it.

The 2H lines are computer generated and it doesnt have emotion to recover losses. It is a formula for probability just like what we try and do. Straight up every game the same would be 50%. With added filters you make ur profit.

Guess I did my calculations wrong..I'm no math major thats for sure.. I did it this way:

(21-6) -(-3.5) +.5 = 19

Spoke too soon, recovered on-side kick! Lost my bet!

Pass interference.....I need some luck now in order to enjoy post-game show.

Need a penalty or goof-up by Cowboys.
