You don't feel comfotable risking $1400 to make $100?

Probably better off waiting for next week where I don't open myself up to some freak occurrence like Brady, Gronkowski, Welker, and Hernandez all getting injured on the first play of the game.

I already jumped over an early line for next week: CAR -3.5 @ IND. No way IND stays within a TD. That team has given up, and I think Newton and Co. are probably pissed after their collapse this week.

LSU opens up at -13.5 vs. Arkansas. That seems really high, would anybody take that bet?

Made a couple prop bets on the pack/lion game...

Took over 4 1/2 sacks total in the game

and i got 12-1 odds that Detroit would win by 7 - 10 points....which goes against desired outcome, but just a feeling.

Dumb play by me taking SF+9 as opposed to Baltimore+ 3 on my teaser bet. That cost me all my winnings from last week.

Hindsigtht...

On a teaser I would have certainly thought like you did. Even today SF+9 still sounds better than Baltimore +3.

The line is down to -11.5. Easier to take LSU now

Thanks for the second half no show Atlanta. I mean you can't beat the Vikings by 10 points at home when they don't have Adrian Peterson? No playoffs for you.

So sounds like a rookie question, but I have never had it happen before.

Took the Vikings+10. Game ended with a 10 point loss.

ruling?

Edit: sounds like a push, does that compromse an entire parlay ticket?

it's a push and it just gets voided off the parlay as if you never took the game in the first place.

I got the Falcons only needing 9.5. I escaped that one....never should have been that close.

3 game teaser,
Chicago -1 vs KC. It's Tyler Palko.
Chicago and KC under 43 points when one teams getting 3 points, tough to go over that
New England -15 vs Indy because Bellichick would love to win this game 62-0.

Tempted to do a sweetheart teaser of Atlanta -6 and over 36.5. Only hang up is that Atlanta can get complacent at times and games are closer than they should be. But Jacksonville has a really beat up defense on a short week.

I don't think Jacksonville can win..but the Jags with 18 points may be a better play. I think they can put 17 points on the Falcons D...will Atlanta go over 35 ?

My friend won the sports select hockey pools the other night and got a big payout.

Him and 393 other people got a whopping $94! His profit was $14 so it was a pretty successful day at the office.

Pools is the biggest rip off ever invented. Just parlay the games if you really want to go that way!

And NEVER bet Sports Select. They take an equiv of a 30% cut
