We're Favored By 16?
 
What crackhead comes up with these lines? I know the sportslines are set to generate equal amounts of action from both sides but for goodness sake does anyone in their right mind think we are 16 points better than ECU? If someone wants to give me ECU and 16 PM me, I'll take that action all day.

Translation: "I think the people really believe we're that much better than ECU and I agree, but I want reassurance from fellow fans."

Or maybe you really are trying to get someone to bet with you?

If you really feel that way,why does one of us need to bet you? That's the line in Vegas. If you want to bet get on the phone.

How do you know I haven't already been on the phone to Vegas? No way we cover, no way.

Ok....So what do you want, or expect anyone to say in reponse? I mean, we can all make predictions, and some are gonna be right, and some are not. Personally, I think that Carolina will cover the spread.

Is this a rhetorical question or are we actually supposed to give an answer?

I just think after watching last weeks performance that that spread seems ridiculously high to me, that's all I'm trying to say. IMO it should be more along the lines of 6-8 points.

Spreads are to entice people to bet, not an evaluation of what the game will end up being.

Totally thread-worthy.

I'll take us. ECU is not A&M and it's not even close.

Re: We're Favored By 16?
 
You're basing the outcome on last week's game against A&M.

Trust me...we cover. ECU's defense sucks worse then a $5 whore on Bourbon Street.

Bet the house!!! Then go to your local library afterwards so you have internet access and let us know how it turns out for you.

Exactly! I always lmao at these threads. 95% know almost nothing about gambling and how theses lines are set, move, etc. IE "public" or "squares" which most people don't even know what that means haha.

It's just comedy to me. I bet a lot and it's just so funny in here. Most of these people that say omg how are we favored?? Never. Bet a dime.

Line is to -17 on most books btw

Just out of curiousity but how did you come to this conclusion?
