That and a buck, will get you a cup of coffee. More Bostonians and NY'er can afford to place bets more than Michigan people. What matters is what happens on the field!

Don't blame Vegas, blame the betters. The odds are determined based on the bets. If the Tigers were 100/1 people would bet on them like crazy and Vegas would adjust the odds. If the Marlins were 2/1 nobody would bet on them so they'd adjust the odds. The odds are determined by the betters, not by Vegas.

The same works for point spreads. Patriots are 14.5 point favorites this weekend. That will change based on how people bet.


Coming Soon: A better signature!
