Montsta's Vegas Vacation

49 posts in this topic

Hello fellow huddlers,

On Friday I will be going on my annual summer Vegas trip with my buddies. For the fifth consecutive year I will be putting money down on the Panthers to win the Super Bowl. Vegas currently has us at 60/1 odds, which I personally feel is ridiculous. I'll be dropping $50-$100.

What do you guys think of those odds? Generous? Offensive?

How about you give me half your money, I'll kick you in the nuts, and we'll call it a day.

I have a better bet for you. Super bowl participants. No way we will be one of the top 8 teams in the nfc. Betting the field typically pays 75-1. We dont even have to win and it doesnt matter who we play.

Offended as a panther fan but love it as a gambler, if I could I'd put $100 too

So is this basically a two-bet parlay for afc and nfc champions?

    • Elbows too pointy. Would not bang.
    • On the surface this team seems greatly improved but in reality we added a geriatric at DE and SS. Our LT is bad enough that the Vikings thought getting Remmers in return was an upgrade, and our greatly improved offense includes a rookie RB who dominated the 5th best college conference and a hybrid RB/WR who isn't good enough to stick at either position. That being said, I'm hopeful it works out.
    • First, let me say that I pretty much only watch the NBA during the playoffs (or when I'm absolutely bored and channel surfing, which is very very seldom). I am really a fan of players and coaches and not necessarily teams except for the Spurs. That being said, I do support the Hornets as they are a North Carolina team---the "home" team, if you will.  The problem is I don't see any way that they will credibly compete for a championship (because they really haven't come close in franchise history). Gone are the days of Grand Ma Ma and Dell Curry, but even then one would be hard pressed to really believe. Unless they happen to draft a legitimate, and I mean legitimate, superstar that wants to be here, I can't see it. I go from year to year in June saying "Perhaps this is the year," but reality sets in during December.  Well, perhaps this is the year that they at least become credible. Monk was arguably the best pure shooter in the draft. Can he create his own shot---break 'em down and break some ankles to be a legitimate point guard or 2-guard? We will see. Bacon may be underrated. We will see. Does the other Superman in Charlotte have enough juice to make a credible run and get the Hornets over the hump. I don't know.  It's just hard to believe that the Hornets will actually become truly relevant when you look at their history, and that has to really suck as a hardcore fan.
