    LETS JUST SAY THAT THE BW COLTS-4 BET WAS (MAYBE) A BUSINESS DECISION..(MAYBE NOT) THE ONLY WAY LINES (USUALLY) MOVE IS WHEN BETS ARE MADE..SO IN HENCE...THIS IS PART OF THE COST OF DOING BUSINESS WHEN YOU WANT A CERTAIN NUMBER ON A CERTAIN GAME..

    Meanwhile, that line keeps dropping. ML now at -186 at Matchbook. Glad I didn't jump on -200.

    All I have been reading is that the sharps and squares are on the Colts. Yet, Colts moneyline continues to drop.

    I was there with Marty Jensen of all people.

    I went double or nothing taking the BUCS for 3O k and then bet Marty 5k on the side...

    I'll never forget the pleasure I got taking his money and having the entire vacation paid for by a bookie...

    THE SHRINK

    doesnt Marty own a restraunt in Coronado?

    BTW its La Jolla not Le Hoya

    that is some serious cheese.


    thanks for the info shrink
    Definitely some serious money. It blows my mind how successful some of these guys are. I would crap my pants if I were to ever win a thousand dollars. I'd be happy to get my bankroll up to that. I can't imagine winning a million or 2. I'm just a small time $10 or $20 here and there kind of guy. Still trying to learn. I've had a bunch of ups and downs, but it seems like I am always where I started. Not winning money, but not losing either. I'm having fun with it, but it is frustrating.

    Anyway, I hope these guys cash in their million dollar plays, as well as the rest of you.

    What Sean Peyton has done in NO is much more inpressive than what Caldwell has done in Indy

    No doubt Sean is the real deal and I am not sure about Caldwell


    For now I put Caldwell and Norv Turner in the same category

    I doubt Indy will cover if Freeney is out

    I've been thinking the same thing. All these "sharps" and whales" laying huge amounts of money of the Colts and the line keeps dropping?

    Not necessarily, supposedly some Vegas books have a pretty big negative exposure to the Saints winning the SB as lots of tickets were getting written as they opened the season undefeated. This is why it always comes down to someone asking for approval and the suits upstairs look at how the bet would even out their risk. The MGM organization will probably take in over $20M in action on the game, working a million or two isn't that difficult for them.

    I agree with your point, but I think he may have meant that the fact that it is Billy Walters, more than the amount of the bet, would normally move the line a bit. However, Saints futures at as high as 25-1 preseason, would certainly change the equation.

    I'd imagine books will do quite well on future bets. They always do. The odds are ridiculoous in the books favor. For all the winning tickets, there are tons more losing tickets.

    One guy affiliated with a Vegas book told me the two biggest volumes of tickets they wrote were on these two teams. What happens when teams win every week, the bandwagon gets crazy. He said they started the Steelers and Pats too low so they didn't get enough action on those teams to make the math work so well. He said it wasn't a terrible liability, but it is a liability nonetheless.

    They all cried poverty when the Rams won and cashed tickets that were all at least 100-1, but normally, I would think you're right. With 31 losers and one winner it's hard to get beat up very badly.

    How someone else's wager on a game can draw 3 pages of replies is beyond me...


    With all due respect, I care very little about Billy's bet, SHRINK's bet, Aunt Jemimah's bet, Uncle Ben's bet, Mrs. Cubbison's bet, etc...


    I am concered with my wager.

    Who do you like, Jimmy? It does make for interesting conversation, and like the media, we bettors have two weeks to kick it around.

    Yup. And usually the 100-1 tickets are for 50 bucks or so. The favs or 3rd or 4th faves that are having good years and have decent value are the bets getting few hundred or thousands. So, I don't think they are getting hurt no matter who wins. the odds the boks throw up on these teams are ridiculous bets.

    GL Jimmy, I like the ML. With Freeney out/limited, I can see the Saints hanging around and maybe backdooring the points. Probably should only buy to 3, but the ML has been good to me in recent Super Bowls.

They make the perfect "beard'.
    Bingo.

    Just thinking about it. If you win 2 mil in Vegas, then you are forced to claim it on your taxes. Would the tax be about $600k on winning 2mil?

    Say hello to the 35% tax bracket!

    About $675,000 goes to federal taxes..

    And then there's the fun times of paying out your state, local and city taxes too.

    State, local and city taxes will be another few hundred thousand.

    And if you happen to reside in one of a few states that has really backward gambling income tax laws, you will be fucked even worse than usual (but that goes for every gambler!).

    After Uncle Sam jacks his cut, you'll wonder where the other half of your winnings went.. Goodbye, money.

    Matt Youmans reporting in todays 2/5 LVRJ on the Walter's wager at Bellagio. He says it was on the ML, not on the -4 Shrink indicated.
