Marqutte getting 3.5 tonight

Does Depaul have a nasty crowd?

I like Marquette a LOT on that line. Vegas must know something I don’t know because I’m surprised they’re dogs even on the road.

Vegas wants you to like that line a lot. That’s why the casinos are so pretty and the drinks are free.

Yeah, apparently you were missing about 9.5 points :stuck_out_tongue:

This is why I stick to gambling on college football and the NFL. Just too many teams that can win on any given night in college hoops. Glad I stayed away from this game or I would have got taken to the cleaners. :frowning:

If anyone makes a science of having a good idea of who will win, it’s the odds makers. Sometimes it seems uncanny how close they are. It will be interesting to see the line on our game tomorrow. If we are dogs by 3 or less, we’ll have a chance. If not, reserve your NIT tix now. :unsure:

There’s only one true lock in all of sports gambling. Take every NFL team at home getting points. Bet all of them every week, at the end of the year, you’ll win money. Not sure what happened this year, but it’s worked for the past 15.

Actually, a good friend of mine wrote and published the top 10 bets in sports. It is highly regarded in Vegas. His research showed that over the past 20 years that the best bet is betting against the defending superbowl champs for the entire season. It was a proven winner every year if you bet it every week. The lines are always inflated, the schedule is tough and every opponent is up for the game.

I think the second best bet was taking college football home dogs in games where at least half of the game was played after dark. These were very good odds over the 20 years studied.

Otherwise the best bet is not to bet. I once heard Beano Cook tell a story about a conversation he had with his bookie…

His bookie said if you want to place a bet, call me. If you want to play a parlay, I’ll call you. And if you want to play a teaser, I’ll send a limo.

How true

That's interesting, just b/c the Pats would have smoked that this year. Ups and downs. Cool.

The 49ers have thankfully kept my betonsports.com account alive, but it’s on life support at this point. A Marquette win sure would help. :slight_smile:
