Inaugural Degenerate Gambling Post

I know I'm getting ahead of myself here, but it's never too early to talk about NFL wagering, right?. Vegas has released the Over/Under Win totals for the 2009 NFL season and I couldn't resist commenting. The sportsbook has some serious confidence in the NFC East this year, setting the line at 10, 9.5, 9 and 8 for NYG, PHI, DAL and WAS, respectively. I can't say I disagree too much with any of their picks, but if I were a gambling man - which I am - here are my first thoughts on who I like:
  • Carolina OVER 8.5 at +100

  • Arizona UNDER 8.5 at -110

  • Philly OVER 9.5 at -145

  • Oakland OVER 5.5 at -140 if this babe's husband is the starter.

  • Seattle OVER 7.5 at -150

These are just first impression/no research whatsoever picks. I basically just secured the Eagles to win less than 9.5 games this year, and for that I apologize.



  1. I'd put a couple pennies on Cinci (under 6,+125). I have a hatred for them ever since I went out there for the tie. While tailgating I had to deal with Cinci fans walking by chanting "Who Dey" which in turn made me want to repeatedly slam my face against a brick wall. Andy Reid then decided to throw 150 times into a heavy wind and the Eagles played for potential field postion in the second OT. Wait, what? It ends after the first? Ahh memories..
    Washington (under 8, -130) division will too tough. Snyder is an idiot.
    San Diego (Over 9.5, -130) Division stinks

  2. Did you check out Garcia's babe?

  3. Like my boy tells me: If it looks like a rat and smells like a rat, by golly, it is a rat...T.O
