Week 2 Vegas Odds and Introducing The New Beerline.

Week 2 Vegas odds have arrived. This week Vegas introduced a new type of line called the "Beerline" that makes it easier for people who do not understand all the numbers to bet on teams. For example if I bet Chandler on the Beerline and I took Thee Beer Nuts and he agreed to take the TJs, he would owe me 3 drinks if TBN won while I would only owe him 1 if the TJs won. Basic common sense.

what's the payout on a 3-team parlay?

Chandler said...

awesome... the Beerline just might have revolutionized kickball betting.

Rob said...

Some useful information for those betting....Shockers are 1-0 SU, 1-0 ATS and Over 1-0 for this season

Chandler said...

Smithkey... I'll take the Ligers beerline if you'd like some of that action.

Smithkey said...

Chandler- I will gladly take the Superbad beerline.

I'm going to be like Pete Rose and bet(allegedly) on my own team to win. Go Pants on the Ground.

Love it - but it's not 100% accurate...money lines are directly related to spreads...unless you're the house and you're feeling generous...

-2.5 -140/+120
-3 -155/+135

I know from experience dude. Me and gambling, GOT...IT...ON!

Florian said...

I'm not an expert on spreads or "beerlines" but aren't the beerlines on the Shocker/BCBC and the IKT/Wakashame games in the wrong order?

Smithkey said...

Flo- you were correct, the 2 beerlines you speak of were messed up but are now fixed.

MJ- thanks for the numbers. I honestly just made shit up but still do not think my numbers are too far off.

Litman- I will take WAKAshame on the beerline

Why is the ballics/jager game "off"? Did vegas take a beating last week when we surprised waka with the return of geoff? Are they afraid John Brantley himself might be in the lineup this week? Are the jagerbombs girls showing up in orange thongs and will therefore distract all alcounits from wanting to play?

Grifter said...

No Gorecki - It's because Vegas isn't sure what to make of your team.

And they don't trust you not to shave points/throw the game.

Kyle said...

no Gorecki...the reason the Ballic/Yeaga game is listed as "OFF" for the spread is because if you look at the ML, it's considered to be an even game. Much like your standard PK (pick em) lines in Football, Smithkey decided to give a nod to the OC and use OFF to indicate same.
