Packers - Dolphins latest line
Does not surprise me, the injuries are taking its toll on the line as well.
What does that mean?
Packers are favored by 3.5pts
Ah. The minus always throws me off.
home team is usually given 3 pts.....so they are basically .5 pt favorites.
Half an extra-point?
basically its them winning or losing. points are almost thrown out of the window
Aye, if it were three (3) then you could "push," (a tie for betting purposes) which gives you a percentage of the money you put down back depending on the bookie. Since its 3.5, GB must win by four (4) or greater since no half points exist on the score sheet. As SICK said, GB is more or less favored by .5 points as the home team is favored by three (3) points the majority of the time. Nonetheless, the lines change from day to day leading up to the game with the activity that both teams get from people betting. Or they do not change because Vegas is confident in a certain outcome...they are oftentimes right.
If you think the Packers will win take that bet NOW. The line will change to the 6-7 range once they say Rodgers will play. So if your betting on Miami wait for the line to change
Ah forgot about that it's either one or the other since you can't actually score half a point.
I R Stuped
Just think of it like they think the Packers are so good they can start off in the negative and still beat us.
def. dropping $$ on the dolphins, once the line moves up to around 6-7 for the packers (rodgers playing)
I think about it like this....if we lose, ill be so depressed ill just spend that money on booze anyways, if they win, i win more money for booze to celebrate! WIN WIN
Don't do it! Never bet a game involving the team you root for! What happens God forbid GB wins and covers? Double suckage. I never bet on Jets games. Ever.
ill be depressed anyways, mineaswell risk making some $$
I'm not aware of any books offering this game right now.
In my pool at work the Dolphins are getting 7 points.... I like it
Im suprised it isn't OFF the board honestly, if Rodgers is out -3.5 is nuts, if he is playing -3.5 is nuts.....very strange a line is up, I think they know Rodgers will play so they want u too pound Miami
lol.. your a funny guy Meister..
I think its funny when a smart person gets stumped by something elementary.
the bad: very difficult stadium to play
the good: coming off a bye & there's no snow in the forecast
Miami by 3
This. I used to make petty bets (family, friends, small amount of money) with the Dolphins when they played other teams that my family or friends root for and they NEVER won. So, I stopped doing it. Sick, if we lose, this one's on you.
and if we win.....?
I have felt "Double Suckage" before on a bet but, and this is the best term I have ever heard to describe that symptom.
What strikes me funny is that the overall points (in the link) are "OFF". That tells me that even Vegas has no idea what to expect. This is a little rare. (I think)
Then you get a cookie.
Never said I was a gambler. Now, I am, however, an underwater basket-weaving aficionado (before/after the steroid era). Obscure Sports Quarterly ftw!
lol I agree with Bick...but you could do this: Bet on GB with the moneyline. If they win then you make money but the Dolphins lost. If Dolphins win you are happy with them winning, but lost money lolol Just screwing around, but its a thought
**** that.......well actually............ok
Everyone likes cookie.
Especially this guy:

I stopped betting on the Fins years ago... bad enough to watch them blow games. Dont need to lose money in the precess.
Because just like us, Vegas has no idea if our special teams will show up.
I take the opposite approach, but not to "hedge my happiness" so to speak.
Whenever I make a bet over 20 bucks on a football game, I'm guaranteed to lose. Never fails. So for big games I sometimes bet 20 straight up on the other team. I consider it buying a win!
I've never agreed with this logic which I hear all the time. They would be a .5 favorite if they played on a neutral field but they aren't, they are playing in GB which makes them a 3.5 point favorite.
Same here, it is like paying for a Dolphins Win.
I think the line should move with Rodgers return to the lineup, but either way we are underdogs.
well i know....but as dolfans...we can take solace in knowing we arent picked to lose by 3.5 because we are inferior, its just because we are on the road. just like we were 3 pt favorites at buffalo, we were techincally 6 pt favorites, because buffalo was home team and they are given 3 pts.
my site doesn't have a line...
This. It's nice to know our team on paper equally matches up with another team. Skill wise they think its a coin flip, but the home crowd factors in to give GB the win from the bookies.
