On another forum they are betting on football down there and it confuses me a mite. They is offering -7.5 and other such nonsense on games. Some goof said there were bronco's against steel and he would give them odds[whatever they mite be]. So having been around both bronc's and steel my whole life I took the bet as I only seen broncs bbeat steel once when a runaway tried taking a ten foot rake through an 8 foot door. :shock:

sounds logical to me. I'd guess you have as much chance of winning as anyone. :wink:

It's all part of sports betting, which is illegal in most of this Country with the exception of Nevada, New Jersey and a few other places but people do it anyway. I noticed both Toronto and Niagara Falls, Ontario are really big into sports betting while visiting there.

If a sports team is picked to win. Home team +7.5. Visitors get a negative -7.5. If that team wins by more than that point differential than you win depending on the amount you bet. Yes, confusing but a great way to win or lose large amounts of cash...

Or if you pick the underdog and they lose by less than the spread you still win. I remember reading an article once about a woman who knew nothing about football picking all the games based solely on the names of the mascots and beat all of the so-called " experts ".
