    Could you please add money lines to some of the games, especially Rams games. I'm sure some of the clientele want to bet on the Rams beating the 49ers outright rather than including a 9 point or smaller loss in their wager. The market is generally around +320 for the Rams with the 49ers at -440.

    Do you just want to be a bookie yourself?

    I don't mind helping out and giving advice but it's not something I want to be committed to.

    I think money lines are a good idea and was considering adding them as time allowed. The odds can be quite favorable.

    suggestion ...there should be an option when creating a thread to be able to make your own betting thread like when you add a poll...just a thought

    Are you suggesting everyone submit their own bets?

    If so, I can already envision the amount of abuse and cheating that would create.

    What is all this + and - on these bets. I'm used to just picking a winner and that is it. Is this some kind of handicap betting?

    Ex. -10 means that team HAS to win by at LEAST 10 points.

    The +10 team could lose the game but you could still win the bet if they do not get beat by more than 10 points.

    We will use the Rams/9ers game as another example.

    The 49ers are favored by 9.5 pts so they are -9.5. If you think that the 49ers will beat the Rams, and beat them by more than 9.5 points, you would make this bet.

    With virtual money i agree.. Bet away.

    When it comes to dropping real coin, I try and avoid betting on teams I follow. All too often I found myself making emotional bets which can take a toll on the wallet.

    Yes I completely agree with that. Bet with your head not your heart. Nothing worse than your team losing and then realising you'd lumped on as well. Gutting!!

    ok.. well, I like the idea of doing some virtual bets so every week I click in to here there should be a few top 25 college games and every or at least half the pro games to generate fun/bragging rights/interest...again, just a thought, not a demand...says the new guy.

    and oh...hey...the Bowls are coming up :woot:

    The bookie guys get around to it when they can.

    You are more than welcome to volunteer your services if you want.

    It essentially is a way to get bets equal on both sides. If a bookie playing with real money had everyone betting one way he can move the line to encourage betting the other way.
