Too obvious bet for the Colts. I'll take the Saints in an upset with my grand.

Innocent Colts fan here, not looking to talk any trash.

I think an even line of the game is fair. I, for one, couldn't believe the line opened at 3.5, then jumped to 5.5

I feel like its a match-up where if they played 10 times, each would win 5.

i'm not much of a betting man on football, but consider the ponies and i'm all in. vegas has a line on how many times they show archie or the kardashins during the game in a over or under. its like 3.5 times i'll take the over on archie in that one.

I'll take the Colts even. But I am from close to Indy.

I'd not bet more than I could afford to flush down a toilet either way.

I'll go with destiny on this. If its good enough for the Saints organization, its good enough for me. SAINTS ALL THE WAY!

Re: BETTING MAN? I'm Giving the Colts EVEN.

It is more a question of faith at this point than analysis. Both teams are equally matched. Both teams are constructed to play this exact game at this exact time. The Vegas line only represents volume of rational expectations in one direction or the other. It should never be a source or substitute for analytics.
