(NJ.com)   If the Eagles finish their game against the Commanders with a positive turnover ratio, they will be the first team since the 1958 Colts to open a season with a plus-turnover margin in their first nine games. Then they play the 2022 Colts   (nj.com) divider line

This doesn't sound right. Not a single great defensive team of years past had a positive turnover ratio through nine games?

Yeah either I'm really confused or this is missing something.

I think they mean in every game, not aggregate.  Nine games - each individually with a positive turnover ratio - is likely the record.  Even the best slip once or twice and end up -1 on a game.

That makes so much more sense.  Thank you.

They need to hire you as an editor.

That seems very likely to happen no matter who's in at QB for Washington.

/unless they stat Howell and he doesn't fumble or throw an INT
//we all know Heinicke and/or Wentz is usually good for at least 1 INT
///3s

/don't know what "stat Howell" would mean....
//Don't "stat that"
///it's not a thing!

I would swear the 1990 Giants set some sort of mark for fewest turnovers, like less than 16 total. If that's the case, they'd have to have a bunch of games where they had a positive turnover ratio. Unelss they didn't force any themselves and they were pretty much even all year.

I have zero understanding of sports betting odds, but am curious.  if you threw 100$ on the colts to win sunday, how much would you win?

Colts are currently +205, so including your original $100, you'd receive $305 back

Also just for fun, to explain how odds work, just for simplicity sake let's say the colts were -205. That means that you would need to bet $205 in order to win $100.

That's not what a ratio is.

If you mean net turnovers, say that.

thanks for explaining that.  Just in general, I've never understood how those +/- worked.  And i found that calculation previously on the internet, but there were various fractions and other things going on in the gambling calculators, so i wasn't sure if what i was looking at was correct.

Im kind of shocked that the odds are even that good, truth be told.
