Haha.  Thought for sure I typed an "e" there.  No editing is brutal.

Interesting.  Unusual for first playoff wknd.  Usually about an even split.  This year's adjusted numbers may not translate to playoffs where there's defensive effort and fewer whistles.  Expecting an adjustment by Vagas.

Line movement suggests he is playing.

That's his biggest asset, though.  No one's worried about his 9 pts.

Vegas certainly doesn't seem concerned about it.

I've never seen this before.  Is it supposed to lightning for the next 9 hours?!

 

Boise players just received a gift from heaven.  Use the money you've been gifted wisely.

 

BC players, I feel for ya.

That foul decided the 2nd half total, also.

This is what I mean, and what I'm afraid of.  Rams went down to 7.5 for a reason.  New Orleans must be favored for a reason, too.?

DB's and RB's (unless superstars) don't affect the lines that much.  Minny is off a road win just like New Orleans.  And they beat New Orleans twice here last year, winning by 5 and 9 while laying -3 and -5.5 respectively.  They were down their best RB in both of those games.

I kinda like Minny too, but the line has me spooked.  Is there an injury I'm not aware of?

Boston hasn't had a game forever - since Oct. 6.  Most teams have played 2 or 3 games since then.  Yes, preseason games, but games nonetheless.

Not sure it means anything; just interesting.

Yeah, I don't know.  The line opened at -11.5.  The two games @ GS last season were -10 and -10.5.  Losing Westbrook is worth more than a point on the line.

The Line has moved very little, and has gone down some within the movement, since Westbrook was declared out.  Be careful.

Yes, both teams coming off a bye.  App.St. off second bye in 4 weeks.  Won home games by 65 & 45 in between.  You can have em.

The last time the nation saw Memphis, they got their doors blown open by Tulane.

Potential trap here.

Admittedly, I haven't followed baseball much this season.  But from afar, the line (-135ish) seems a bit short for a one-game playoff at Wrigley against a non-public team.

 

Just food for thought.

The only reason the Packers line was a pk was because Rodgers was thought to be out.  And if he had been out, the Bears probably would have covered.

Anyone who's paid attention to the Lions through the preseason would be in their right to think they'll lose tonight.  They looked bad.  Yes, preseason is meaningless.  But they looked bad.

Pels -2.5

Knicks +4.5
