The House Advantage
Older sports bettors remember the days when 1st Quarter and 2nd Half lines weren’t an option. Of course the house has adapted quickly to these new wagers with elevated vigs as with our Cowboys PUSH at -130. That means that their Q1 trend continues but our other two trends ended. (-$4,700 Pesos) So with 85% of our original bankroll still available will continue to increase the amount of our wagers based on how many weeks left in the season.
This Week’s Wagers = $1,650 Pesos on Tampa Bay +1 (-110) vs Indy 1st Half
$1,750 Pesos on Oakland (TBD) at Tennessee 2nd Half
$3,000 Pesos on Houston (TBD) vs Saints 2nd Half
TB had covered 10 straight H1 on the road while the Titans are 2-15 ATS at Home H2 and Houston 11-2 overall H2
Sunday night’s marquee matchup between the Bengals and Arizona exemplifies everything that makes Sports Betting the worst and the best hobby in the world. The line opened with the Home team Cardinals at -2 ½ and went all the way up to -5 before settling at -4 at the kickoff. You were at the sports book early in the week and got the Visitors at +2 ½ while your buddy who waited until Sunday took Arizona -4. If it was the other way around the game middled and you both won as the difference in the score was a field goal. It wasn’t and two guys with bets on the same game both with different teams each lost their money.
