betting on football

I started to call a bookie that I know and bet $100 on every NFL football game played today. I wasn't going to pick winners and losers. I was gonna bet the "UNDER" on every game played.

Offences usually take longer to jell than defenses do, so I was ALMOST ready to bet a lot of money on low-scoring games. I'm glad that I didn't do it now. I would have lost a few hundred dollars.

I quit betting on football games a long time ago. I need to stick with that practice.

(UPDATE: Now that all the scores are in, I would have won $200, minus the vig for the bookie. My instimcts were correct, but I'm still glad that I didn't place those bets,)

Me also. The betting line is always in favor of the book-kind of like a slot machine that puts its back to the wall and challenges the whole damn world. If it could beat you in the long run it couldn't stay there. I reckon that is why they call this gambling. I'll stick to poker.

Chiefs creamed the jets. That was a good game.
