Post Vegas giving Fins respect
http://linemakers.sportingnews.com/nfl/ ... oks-cantor

thought this was interesting to see the respect for us in the betting lines.
a pick em game with Indy. Falcons only favored by 1. Ravens only favored by 1.
We're favored against the Bengals by 1. Not sure why New England is such a heavy favorite against us.
Surprised that Tampa is favored over us.

I see 9 wins for us.

Unfortunately we fans will not have to give up hope after the first five games of the season. The lines are 1 win (Browns), 3 losses (Falcons, Saints, Ravens), and 1 even (Colts).

That's pretty much how I see those 5 games as well. Can we upset any of the 3? I think the Saints would be our best bet.

Betting lines are actually not designed to pick winners they are designed to make the house money. And they way they do that is by splitting the money on the two teams as much as possible. Hence, if a ton of bets are coming in on New England then they are going to give Miami more points to encourage people to bet on them.

After the first week, all of the odds are going to change anyway especially factoring in injuries.

I think Miami has a good chance to beat Baltimore... game is in Miami and I don't think the Ravens are as good as last season.

we won't slow down Brees Dave. I think we beat the Ravens. They're nothing special anymore.
