Wow, no home dogs this week.

I do like all the home teams, but 0 is not worth enough points :p

CAROLINA AT MINNESOTA (1:00 pm ET) [CAR +3.5]

I don't understand how Minny is favored though.

"I do like all the home teams, but 0 is not worth enough points :p "

it's the average of all the games.

Got a better formula, i'm all ears

I don't know if there's a better formula or not, but I think you should set it at the highest spread of the week, or even 1.5x the highest spread.

Of course that makes it uninteresting in weeks when there are no high spreads, but you have the same problem taking the average.

I kinda wanted it 'in line' with the other points for games... I don't know.


Maybe there can be some sort of 'progressive' to it.
Ave +Wk# or something until it's hit.

or even AVE *1.5 or 2.

00 = 0*5.

I dunno - like I said, I'm open for interpertation.

Well I think you have to make it interesting otherwise no one is going to pick it.

I can't see picking it this week as ther are enough 3 pointers out there to chose from, and the likely hood off all of them going to the favorite is too low to take that shot for only 6 points.

I like that pick, NO has a great offense and denver doesn't have much of a defense. The inverse is also true though. Betting agianst Cutler playing a bad defense isn't a good idea at this point in the season IMHO

so they are.

Only one home dog then.

But I'm not betting it anyway.

NEW YORK J AT SAN DIEGO (8:35 pm ET) [NYJ +9]

I'm surprised it's that big a gap. San Diego hasn't played very well yet, and LT is banged up. Gimme some Jets. Not that I expect them to win, but I expect them to play it close, and maybe pull it out with any luck.

I can't see the Chargers starting 0-3 after their years of success. The Jets, on the other hand, are always losers. If they win, it will put you in the lead though so GL.

Fucking Bengals... they had that game. Why didnt they call TO with 22 seconds left instead of running down the clock and kicking a FG?

" Why didnt they call TO with 22 seconds left instead of running down the clock and kicking a FG? "

Probably because they didn't have any left?

Damn you are stupid.

Yeah, they did have a TO shitlicker. Maybe you should know what you are talking about before jumping into a conversation.

And they had to save it for the FG retard.

they were at 3rd and 1 and had to run a play fast.

so no, they didn't have a TO they could use, as if they used it, they had to kick the FG right away.

They were forced to throw over the middle though and take that TO with 4 seconds left.

So yeah, they did have that TO, but calling it at that point would have been pointless.

Becomes...

"So yeah, they did have that TO, but calling it at that point would have been pointless. "

They were in FG range already. If they had called TO, they would have had one play to go for the endzone with 22 seconds left. If it doesnt make it, then you kick the FG and go into OT.

What is wrong with that scenario?

exactly. Problem is that they took a good 20 seconds to get that play off.

They call the To and leave 22 secs on the clock - and then what happens, happens - hthey cmplete the pass over the middle, and can't get out of bounds, and instead of not getting the FG, they run out the clock trying to get back to the line, to 'clock' the ball. Which is what I thought was going to happen before they called TO because I didn't think they had 1 left either...

The only thing they might have done different is with the 4 secs left - is take a shot at the end zone with the momentum instead of pussing out and going for the FG.

Cinci did it by the book, and lost in OT. nothing new.

"They call the To and leave 22 secs on the clock "

Its not so much that they didn't call the timeout. Its that they chose not to call the time out and then burned that much time off the clock calling the play.
