jimmythefly: Interesting thing about the spread that, until recently, I really didn't understand (maybe this is super-old news to most of you):It is not an estimate of "how much will Team A beat Team B by".It is an estimate of "what does that number have to be to get 50% of the people to bet for one side, 50% for the other. The house gets a cut either way, so the best thing to do is get it to that 50/50 split, so payouts cancel themselves out no matter which team wins.So it's more about what the house thinks people think about the teams, than what the house actually thinks of the teams.
OtherLittleGuy: I would laugh so hard if the Jags got a win, moreso if it was a last-second field goal.
SenorBenedict: And they beat the spread.
Ishkur: SenorBenedict: And they beat the spread.By half time.
