Hey, you guys have to go by the NY Post Sunday lines.
http://www.nypost.com/sports/betting/postline.htm
I had the Broncos laying 14 1/2.

Make sure you check this out guys. Ok?



I went 1-1-1 today.

Wait a second. How is Vermonter 25-17?
The Redskins won 17-13. They were giving 4. Thats a push! The Colts won 26-18 They were laying 9. How is that a win for Vermonter? Vermonter went 1-2 today. The Ravens were the only team he had that covered.
Vermonter is 23-18-1

If I'm wrong, get back to me.

JUst got in the door........Chuckles, Im with you on the idea of shouldnt have gotten up this morning. Had to take the father of an old friend(and a close frined of mine too) to the emergency room late this afternoon because he was bleeding internally.....believe me you dont want details ..Only scores Ive heard are the ones from the radio around 6:30 when I was racing back to the hospital because they needed to know every last medication he was on. Ill check things tomorrow, wrote down the lines when I did it this morning.....if the Skins won by 4 then SC is right about that game being a push for me(tho SC? a push would make me 1-1-1 and not 1-2 as you had me above).

As for the line.....should we do this next year.......lets think about using USA Today.......maybe its the same line used by the Post, but I dont know......I do know USA Today uses Danny Sheridan who has always been considered the best at setting the line.

Okay, I guess you had a worse day than me VTer.

No, you're probably right, Bob. I was going by the spread over at Sportsline, which had the Skins -3.5 and Colts at -7.5. Didn't look at the final NYP line, which is what we agreed on by TSC fiat. Far be it from me to try and give VTer the extra two wins!

NONE OF WHICH MAKES MY PICKS ANY BETTER!

I did say we were going to use the NY Post Sunday lines.
www.newyorkpost.com
In order to get access to the betting lines page you have to register to the site.
I thought you guys were getting your lines from the NYP all along.
We can change it next year if you want, but this is where I have been getting them from the get go.


Hmmmmmmmm Maybe I should go over all Chucks "wins" again.

No, I registered - NYP is what I've used from the start, just not this week...

I've been using the Post every week since I started. I had that idea earlier about using Sheridan at USA today but I joined this a week or two late and just figured it wasnt worth bringing up......plus they may be the same lines for all I know, I just know for certain that he does the line for USA.

Another thought maybe I should have brought up is based on when people make their picks(remember SC doing his once on a fri or real early sat morning)...I'd be willing to just call it an honor system on the POst line in that if anyone makes a pick on a sat they should just write down the line THEN....if it changes sunday morning they should get the sat. line......huge difference giving 2 1/2 on sat to then find the line changed to 3 the next morning and a field goal is now a push and not a win. From what I understand about bookies in this world, youd be locked into the line as of when you placed the bet.

SC, I'll go with your math, guessing you had time to look the records over today. PLus, ANY MATH that has me in a slight lead after going on that 0-7 run........well thats math I can live with , esp today.

Yeah Chuckles it wasnt a fun day/evening, but its something you just plain do in life when it needs to be done. Lets just say it was an amazing look into old age since he's 83, and especially the old age effects of incontinence and learning first hand what nurses go through.
