I used to get excited to gamble on football. Now it just seems like so much work. I just don’t care about the other 31 teams, which kinda seems like a prerequisite. Someone does care about your fantasy team…so they can screw you.
The only bet I’m really enthused about today is from the prop list. At +1000, Lady Gaga opens her halftime set with Poker Face. The first line mentions Texas, feels like a lock.
Conventional lines have held steady all week, NE -3, over/under around 58. I’m rooting for Atlanta, of course, because I’m not evil. I’ll take them to win outright at +135. Call it 38-31 Falcons in a shootout.
In other news:
Carolina’s home game vs Notre Dame now no longer at home, as UNC and all of Chapel Hill have been evacuated due to tainted water. Heels play in Greensboro today at 10:00 AM our time instead.
James Michael McAdoo averaging 16 minutes per game since David West went out, and looking good. Love the energy on the defensive end especially. Also the wide-open dunks. Also the new nickname SwagAdoo.
The choice is clear:"Kraut will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no kraut."
