    Of course, all this means is that the sports books will rebound in a big, big way, probably pretty soon. Maybe this week.

    Get in on it while you can....

    A few fixed games here and there should put an end to this "problem."

    I thought this thread was going to be about Selena Roberts's A-Rod book.

    Hindsight in sports betting is always impeccable, but yeah that five-team parlay last weekend with N.E., Indy, Green Bay, San Diego and the Jets was way too easy. And the kind of killing that people will try to chase and probably get toasted.

    Funny, but you never see stories about where the casinos make a killing, which is probably just about every other weekend.

    Great marketing work by the gambling halls. Get the word out about how much money they're giving away, inviting people to jump on board. And then set the trap.....

    I work for a Costa Rican sportsbook and we got killed this weekend but to be fair, we killed last week after the Raiders beat the Eagles straight up. Week 7 was a tough one for sure but considering the killing we made last week we'll call it even.

    The only games that could get ugly for us are the Colts vs. 49ers and the Cardinals vs. Panthers.

    It's a little surprising everyone is loading up on the Titans moneyline of -170 against the Jaguars.
