They didn't get rich being dumb. You can bet they have some of the best sabermetricians in the world working for them to help set lines out there.

How many people here thought vegas was retarded when they set the opening line last week at FSU -3??

And something that i like to point out that is lost on a lot of people... losses don't really matter when setting odds! If a team is 3-3 but lost to the 3 best teams in the country, couldn't they still conceivably be the 4th best team in the country? Why must they be ranked below all of the 1 and 2 loss teams??


Your last argument would make sense if...

USuC had lost to the #1 and #2 teams. We lost to the current #2, so using your logic we should still be #3


I wasn't talking about specific teams, just a theoretical

situation. It bothers me when people act like no team with 2 losses should ever be ranked ahead of teams with 1 loss.

You also totally missed the point on that list bit. Just because we could be does not mean that we are, only that it is possible.


You didn't even read the whole article again did you?

Don't play the SEC ESPn bias here, Vegas is in it to make money, they have the best of the best out there.

Look at Auburn at 27th, undefeated TExas TEch at 20 something

There are no friends or allegiances out there, it has been that way all year.

Even when Clemson was ranked #3 at home Vegas had them up to a 6 point underdog right at kickoff

Vegas still has Clemson as an underdog to USC. I don't understand that one at all but they do.

And now I have seen the dumbest "poll" of my lifetime....***
