Not sure but maybe no line due to possible injuries for Denver.


Anyone know for sure?

Watched it last night on tv. He played great, much more aggressive than his opponent; although, it should be noted, he had a huge chip lead most of the heads up action.

They've got a decent monorail system. Might want to stay close to that to go out and what not.


You're from Zambia and you think Calgary is depressing?


There are 7 casinos in the city. pro football and hockey. Banff is less than an hour away. Some enjoy renting a raft and floating down the Bow River. Sunniest city in Canada. Enjoy

What is concerning for the Texans and the Ravens (aside from playing on the road), is that they're facing teams who came score a lot of points quickly. Both the pats and broncos finished the regular season in the top 5 for offence; however, the other 3 teams in the top 5 either didn't make the playoffs or were eliminated.


Like the 49's due to the 51 sacks the packers gave up in the regular season. Not a huge fan, but I wouldn't want to see Rogers finish the year like RG 3.


I've been betting against the seahawks on the road a lot this year and losing. The falcons have had a year to think about last year's blowout loss to the giants. I think they give a solid effort, though either team may have trouble in the next round.

KC reminds me of Indy last year. The first pick in the draft is in sight


for them. Leaning toward Nebraska today.

I think it's a good question. If Edmonton losses, they go to Toronto to play the argos. Is it possible that Edmonton would rather face Toronto than Calgary? I think it's very possible. Calgaryy is 7-2 at home while the argos own a 4-5 record. gl

Wow, it's been quiet in here for the past.. few months.


I'd like to think it's because people have nothing important to say, and I can respect that. Posting a pick and a line or two, demonstrates very little in terms of and  research and understanding.


I'd like to discuss betting 1 game in proline, although it's impossible, sort of/kind of.


There is one way to play one game, and that is to "box" a selection, although for proline, the odds aren't great, at first glance. For example, if you play spreads (in the west) you get 2.5/1 on a basketball and football bet. That means if you box 1 game (betting 2 tickets) and win, you claim 20% profit. Yes those are terrible odds, and it's a bet I wouldn't take. But.. over/unders in the west also require only 2 picks, and range in odds from 2.00 to 1.45.


Therfore..two 1.7 bets give you around a 30-33% winning payout, which isn't great, but beats the point spread number, and at 33% profit for 1 night isn't that bad ion a small bet; assuming you hit your "key game"


This payout may not come close to your online odds, but that's not what this post is about. It's about using the rules that are in place to profit, and about betting 1 game.


If you agree or disagree..cool. Call me a square, call me short sighted and narrow minded, but please don't post an emoticon to express you level of interest. In my mind there's nothing more lame. Unless you count numberous posts in a SJP's column.


Fire away, although I won't respond to made up aliases with less than 10 posts.


Always looking for a way for us to profit and wishing you luck,

It's good to know that I'm not alone in my opportunistic nature.

It's boring work, at times, checking Milwaukee Bucks totals, or the spread between Golden State and whoever, but I like to think that when I feel like I'm working...I am actually doing something productive as opposed to picking, which for some is entertaining in and of itself.

With Melo in the Harlem Globe-Trotters line up, I think they get blown out by the Generals.

Sports Lottery > Feb 15 > View Post
wmp,
I respectfully disagree. With Melo out, this team actually plays better. Jeremy Lin is playing really well, and with a win, the knicks get back to 500. I don't fear a let-down, as ny goes for 7 in a row. GL

Only 2 props listed in the west :eli vs. tom passing yards and cruz vs. welker in receiving yards. Maybe more tomorrow.


Both qb's hard to sack, but the noise may give you an advantage on the sacks prop. gl


Like under 55.5, and a tie.

pinballwizard,


I'd like to address your line, "unless they (olg) have a decided advantage, the game is a no-go."


With regard to pointspreads and totals, this may not be the case. Obviously, the lotteries must set a line, and you pick which side you want to place your wager. If you think the line is off, you take advantage; sometimes it works, while others times..not so much.


I'm not sure if it will make you feel better, but the alc and wclc (I think) have included ot at least for the past 15 years in ties. At least you have the + 2 option, giving you 5 choices for each game: something the west doesn't have.


Proline is recreation, not a money making device. For anyone thinking about an investment, they should buy some art, antiques or autos and maybe not the raptors, oilers and magic. GL
