"Alright, so like we discussed before the game, we are going with the 'Vikings vs Colts' plan."

Chargers wasting those timeouts is going to cost them the game.  Jags can get in field goal range and just sit on the ball.

In fact, as soon as Etienne broke out, they should've let him score.

So far, this year's playoffs are a little underwhelming.

This is why you don't gamble, kids.

Somebody bet $1.4M to win $11,200 on the Chargers to win when they were up 27-0.

Ouch.

That bet doesn't make too much sense. I don't mind laying odds, and people who make these bets are usually hardened professionals,  but you could probably find a corporate bond that would give you that payout in a month.

A savings account would get you that return in 2 months these days.

True , living in Reno I’ve seen it, but I’ve never seen anyone bet 1.4 million. So I would think if one was betting that much he cover the losing it.

No it doesn’t, just think if he stopped before making that foolish bet, and instead gave it away to help others.  

Oh what a wonderful world.

no but when a team is up 27 points in the NFL, vegas is gonna set the odds crazy because lets be honest, they dont wanna take the bet.   so they set it at a payout that makes sense for them if they lose.

and that payout is minimal.

lots of times gamblers dont even look at the payout and ask if it makes sense.  they just bet.  

There is a reason why vegas makes so much money.  those odds are not set so gamblers make a ton of money.  they are set so the casino does.

There was a study done awhile back that indicated betting heavy favorites on the moneyline was actually profitable because there is so much money on the long shots from people looking for lottery tickets.

In fact, a friend of mine that makes a living gambling in various forms does it pretty regularly.  He's sent me pictures of his tickets where he bet 6000 to win 100 although most of them are in the 15:1 - 30:1 odds.

yeah, agreed. 

pro gamblers know where they are going to make their money.   but there are an awful lot of people who fancy themselves a pro gambler, but in reality, they are just another chump.

I've seen casinos set lines that I dont think are realistic too, but once the betting starts, those lines usually go closer to where they should be.   it is the nature of the beast.

For clarity, this was for college football and the odds have since drifted to where it isn't an edge.  I don't want people to go out betting on huge moneylines.

I'm not a big gambler myself.

I have occasionally gone out and made a bet in cases where I feel the odds set by the casino are way out to lunch but that happens rarely and usually when I notice it I am at work (which blocks online gaming sites) and by the time I get to a computer I can use, the odds have moved towards the place I felt they should be.

no big deal anyhow.  I dont care much for gambling.   fantasy football is also gambling but I do it more for the bragging rights among my friends than I do for the money.

1.4 million on a football game is just insane.
