Early line observation

I noticed the Failcons went from 1.5 point favorites to 1 point last week and now they're just a pick. A number of things seem to be going well and objective 3d parties are picking up on that. Just a random observation I guess.

Re: Early line observation

I don't see how they can be favorites at all. Even if I wasn't a Saints fan, I'd pick the Saints. We have a returning core with upgrades. The Falcons have mostly JAGs.

I was baffled why the opening line was Atl -2.

Revenge, renaissance, and bet inducement.

Why bother to second guess any betting line? It's not a bellweather on true outcome probability.

Yeah it would have been a good bet to take the Saints +1.5

Re: Early line observation

Did you see Mike Smith telling his crew on Total Access in a videoed team meeting to not back-off if anybody picks a fight with a team mate? He told them that's a "good" penalty. LOL. Yup, apparently that's their game plan this year -- punch someone on the opposite team. It'll be almost as sweet as winning. What a bunch of losers.
