Gambling 2K8: Chapter 73


Saints (+1.5)
vs. Panthers

Words: Not only are the Saints not going to win today, but I'm going to kill myself when they don't. At the start of the season I wagered a significant amount of American dollars on the Saints winning more than 8.5 games. They're sitting on eight heading into today's contest against a Panthers team that (a.) is quite obviously better than them and (b.) needs to win to lock up the No. 2 seed. Hooray!

Bills (+5.5) vs. Pats

49ers (-1) vs. Redskins

Chargers (-7) vs. Broncos

Things: Winner takes the division. Loser goes home. Both teams kinda stink. The Chargers just spent the last fifteen weeks proving just that, and they certainly aren't worthy of seven-point-favorite status against an equally desperate team.


Pacers (+4) vs. Hornets


Yale (+17.5) at Alabama

Stuff: Can I get an Amen for the Ivy League!

Portland (+14) at Cal

Coppin State (+9) vs. Colorado*****Neutral court*****

Things: Just checked...Coppin State has exactly one win on the season. One. And they're facing a Big 12 team. Awesome.

Overall record 131-119-6
