  Up until today, I've been doing pretty well in CBB, LJ.   Fortunately some family members showed up earlier than expected, and my original leans today never got bet.  Thank God, I only had 1 winner out of the 6 games I liked for the entire day.  Even that's probably a play or two too many anyway. Hang in there and try and limit the amount of plays, and before you put them in, check the forum for a few of the good cappers, J-Fen, GWarner, and a few others, to see if they're opposite your play.  If so just lay off a game or two, and I think you'll start doing better.  I'm not saying go there first, as it seems to cloud your initial thoughts and plays.  Like anything else, once you get your mojo back you'll start hitting at a better clip, especially with conf. play coming up.

     The NFL card looks awful large also, but I'm in agreement with most.  One game I couldn't bet with my enemies money is the Jets.

     Anyway, here's to a Merry Christmas for you and your loved ones, and to a prosperous New Year ahead.  

                            BOL  on your NFL bets today.

With no dog in the fight I'll be cheering for your bet.

Situational betting in the NFL is the only way (combined with good money management) to have long term success betting the NFL. This is a very good situation, and sure the Lions may have quit, but how do any of us get a strong sense of that. They played awful last week but that was a terrible situation for the Lions. Which dovetails back to situational betting. You think this line is short because the linesmakers are in the xmas spirit?

It's the Lions or a pass.

g/l

         tboon,   seeing that I don't know you from Adam, I unlike you, won't take the liberty of calling you dude.  That's the first assumption I notice in your post.  Another assumption I noticed was the above highlighted comment.  I'm 62 years old, have been doing this since college, and I'm fully aware of the concept of situational betting. There are entire books on the subject, but to keep it brief for obvious reasons, one persons interpretation of a "good spot' vs a "bad spot," doesn't always indicate that one certain  play defines a good situation. Follow me so far?  Numerous other factors,let's just say way too many to discuss in another persons thread, come into play. The fact you stated the Lions may have possibly packed it in is probably the biggest one IMO. Another is that I don't think the current line is all that short as it indicates that if the game was to be played in Atlanta it would be somewhere over 10 but under 2 TD's.  Seems like a fair line to me.  I for one think the situation favors the Falcons, with the #1 seed at stake in this game. I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree, and wait for the game to play out. Sometimes though that doesn't even indicate that a play was a good situational play, just that one team either played better than the other or got all the right bounces.  BOL and I hope all your wagers are winners.

Tons of emotions were let out after the victory. Asking them to muster up the same amount of energy and emotion for a game just 5 days later, hah good luck.
   Look LC,  I respect you as a capper and your record speaks for itself. You keep saying the same thing over and over though.  The last time I looked, the final score of that game was 34-0 Atl. What makes you think they'll need the same amount of energy and emotion to beat a team far inferior to the Giants, and that's also long gone from the play offs.  I don't want to get into a pissing match, but it looks to me that you've taken your stand and are now throwing darts to justify it. Like any wager where people are on opposite sides, you'll obviously see opposite opinions. I understand your position on the "spot/situation" in this game, I just don't think it's applicable. I also hate to see anyone lose a wager, especially myself though, so maybe I'm doing a little of the same and trying to justify my position. Hopefully you haven't taken anything I stated, as me being adversarial towards you.

  Anyway, like I said to Theone, Merry Christmas and hope there's a prosperous New Year ahead for you.  Nothing changes here though, one of us wins, and one of us loses.  I just hate to see someone have so much invested in a bad, bad, football team, that's pretty much packed it in.

  Come on now Theone, you of all people should understand that not only are these discussions good for the individuals posting, but for everyone reading them, as an awful lot of stats end up coming out in these discussions.  I can see where you're coming from if a poster says "if I tail and lose, will you guarantee me my money back?"  Other than comments like that, I thought that's what these threads were for.  I for one see the game through a different pair of glasses.  Does that mean I'll win my bet?  Obviously not, there's never any guarantees, but at least I'll look at all the angles before I lay down my hard earned cash. Example; once I read that the Falcons only had 5 sacks in the last 4 games I looked, and low and behold, I found out that they also have only given up 5 sacks in the last 4 games.  Probably something I would have never looked at unless LC brought that stat up.

          Anyway, hope you have a profitable week and a Merry Christmas and prosperous New Year.

Speaking of getting it, I think we've got all three of your plays this week Shrimp, and with a little luck the Purple Birdies also. Just because the G-Men need to win doesn't mean they will, does it?

   What makes you think that a team that's 2-4 at home on the season, and 4-10 overall will all of a sudden play well, just because they're in front of their home fans.  They had an opportunity to do that Thanksgiving and didn't, and at 4-10, if you throw out Seattle's 9-5 record, the other three teams they've beaten have an overall record of 13-28-1. Atlanta would have to come in flat as a pancake for them to cover, let alone win outright. I just don't see the logic behind backing them be it a regular play, GOW, GOM, or GOY.  Call me a fool, but it's the Falcons or no bet in my book.  BOL

Take a look at the Lions in the last month.

1) Lost to the Packers by 4 and by 7, both games they had a comfortable lead.

2) Lost to the Texans in overtime by 3, had a comfortable lead

3) Lost to the Colts by 2, had a comfortable lead.

Falcons when playing below average teams,

1) needed a miracle to comeback and beat the panthers
2) barely held on to beating the raiders in a dome
3) got crushed by the panthers
4) barely survived the Cardinals

Yeah, such a terrible bet



    Not sure that having the #4 scoring defense, allowing only 18.5 pts./gm , qualifies the Falcons as a below average defense.  There's only 3 teams ahead of them in pts. allowed per game, and that's SF, Sea, and Chi. and that's by a fg or less per game. On the other hand, the Lions allow almost 28 pts./game.  I think that it's not only the less T.O.'s and less penalties that make them a 4 pt. favorite, as obviously the difference in points allowed per game was a factored in, when setting this line. They also dominated the Giants on the ground and t.o.p. last week, so to say they can't run the ball is also not totally correct. Granted they haven't ran that effectively all season, but that's more of a scheming, and game plan factor, rather than the inability to do so.  I expect to see quite a bit of running, early and often, unless they find themselves behind out of the gate. I'd be very surprised to not see the Falcons score at least the 28 point average or more, that the Lions give up per game, and not sure if Detroit can do that much better than Eli did last week, at least not the 24 points I think they'll need to come close to covering.  I'm not knocking your play, just happen to be on the other side.

Yes, fewer law abiding citizens with guns and more criminals with guns does sound safer.

Since you seem to be a very “knowledgable” individual I would love to hear some of your solutions for preventing horrible events like this from happening.

 

    Those four words, as simple as they seem, represent the complexity of the situation.  To try and qualify any single resolution, in regards to what just happened, would be foolish. So as each and every single one of us grapple with the enormity of the problem, why not try and look at what just happened in hopes of holding a meaningful dialogue, with solutions of substance, instead of bickering. In the end I think the OP started this thread looking for answers just as much as all of us have in recent days.

          We already know that high capacity mags are flying of the shelves, as many dealers are quoted as saying they sold out days ago. Does that mean that eliminating them all together is the answer? It probably does in the context of what just transpired, but overall presents a future problem, which is if we make them illegal now, do we have to try and force everyone who possess them to give them up?  Highly unlikely. Then you have the other obvious issue, our 2nd amendment rights.  I don't believe our fore fathers realized the potential that modern manufacturing  had in regards to this, as at the time they were talking about single shot muzzle loaders, and flintlocks. High capacity mags vs. single shot muzzle loaders is an issue that everyone has to find middle ground on.

    So where do we find common ground that makes the most overall sense in regards to never having to feel the pain we've all felt in recent days?  The number one answer is probably just as complex as the gun issue, but more pertinent in more ways than one.  Mental Health diagnosis and treatment in this country is a disgrace. It's pretty obvious that Adam Lanza's rage towards his mother, and the Sandy Hook victims was a direct result of mental issues. Sure we all know the ensuing carnage would have been less horrific if a six shot revolver was used, but does that make it less horrific, or any less of an issue?  Maybe to some, but as far as I'm concerned, one babies senseless death, is one too many.  The only good that has come from this tragedy is all the recent dialogue, so let us try not to stiffle that with pettiness and self serving rhetoric, let's objectively address the issues and hopefully prevent this from happening again. I understand this thread is about gun censorship in America, but to not include mental health issues in this country would not only be irresponsible but not include any pertinent solutions. We've all read enough examples of massive carnage in Chinese schools with knives and axes, to understand that the basic issue at hand is mental health in America. That's the first of any meaningful solutions, and let's just hope as a country we get it right this time.

  glewis    The Shockers getting their 7 footer back today to cover the Vols leading scorer, 6'8' Darnell Stokes should only help keep the Vols in their recent offensive funk.  38 vs Virginia last game, and only 36 vs G. Town the previous game. The supposed sharps betting the Vols are only betting them because of that old angle of an unranked team giving points to a ranked opponent.  In this case, the short line that's at a pk in a lot of places now, will eventually by game time go the other way, with the Shockers being the favorite anyway. Squares have to win sometime too you know. Still no Mayben(sp.) for the Vols either and against a deep and pressing team like the Shockers, they'll need all the depth at their disposal. I like it a lot myself.  BOL to us.

Make sure you use kosher salt.  It's WAY milder than table salt. You don't need a ton, either.  
  If you have leftovers Hutch, buy some top grade proscutti and sharp provalone, wrap a small piece of procutti around asparaguss with a small piece of chesse in each, chill and eat cold.  No salt needed that way, all the salts in the proscutti.  Nice little app.
