Ya, I guess these two are going to the world series or whatever.

Many at the local community college are growing beards and dying them black.

Should I offer to bet $20 against the Giants? would be plenty of takers.

You should.

The Rangers should win in 5 or 6.

can anyone actually understand this stuff?

http://www.docsports.com/world-series-odds.html

not interested in making complex bets on the spread or the final score, just interested in betting on who will win.

if this mumbo jumbo boils down to the Giants having a 30% chance of victory, and i can make a 1-1 bet on their losing, and i can afford to lose the money, then i would consider that a solid bet.

You bet -xxx to win 100 and you bet 100 to win +yyy

Figure out what that makes the odds yourself if you care to.

Otherwise if you can get even money bets and the rangers I'd take it.

I think that when everyone is gathering for one of my classes, i'm go call out the most outspoken Giants fan in the class for a $500 1:1 bet.

afterwards, if i can, i should seek out someone that offers vegas odds and bet $500 in favor of the Giants.

But then you'd have to root for the giants...

Giants have home field advantage, which means alot in the world series.

I wouldnt discount them.

Nope. Vegas wants betting to be even for each team and it will adjust the odds so that that happens. Who Vegas "thinks" will win is not a factor.

Oh come on, everyone knows there are more closet gays in texas than in the rest of the world.
