My spider sense was tingling too. It seems like the perfect "no way they'll lose" scenario. That usually means they'll lose. I know things seem different w/Mahomes at QB. But usually this is about the time KC starts disappointing after looking like they've taken the next step. Maybe all of the above is just my inner Lou Holtz speaking.

I wanted to go Bucs, but I hate picking my team to win.

Neat to see some self-doubts building up here.

Hugh Jackson being fired actually moved the line 1.5 points in favor of the Browns.

I read "Hugh Jackman" and was very confused for multiple minutes.

That's what knocked me out last year. Now I did it again. But I think I have these bums figured out now. But who knows?

I should be more clear to those that don’t gamble on sports.
When the first lines came out the general consessus from a Vegas was favoring KC by 10.
Hugh Jackson was fired and that line has moved to around 8.5
Most European sports boompks have it the same way.


Lines often move based on betting action but I did find it funny that a very terrible coach being let go may have infunced gambling lines.

I think the Browns are a bad team with a lot of talented players due to having so many high draft picks.
I think when and if they find a competent cosch they will improve by several games.

Huh. I only ever bet on soccer, many years ago, where it is (or was?) really just to select 1 (home team wins), 2 (road team wins), or 0 (draw).

I'm thinking the firing actually influenced betting action. That's why the line changed. I could be wrong.

Congrats to Cobra. The Cowboys knocked me out last year and this year. What can I say? It's been a cool ride up until now.
