And now the prerequisite explanation for how Vegas handicaps games...

 

 

Vegas is not prediciting that Cincinnati will beat the Panthers by 7 points. The only thing Vegas cares about is making money. Vegas ultimately wants to have an equal number of bets for both teams, and that is how they derive the spreads.  The point spread may change a number of times up until the game starts, based on how many bets are going for one team or the other.

 

Take this past weekend for example. On Friday the Bengals/Pats line was Even, meaning there was no spread either way and you basically could pick whichever team you thought would win, aka a "pick'em". 

 

A lot of bettors put their money on the Bengals, which in turn moved the spread towards the Bengals favor all the way to -3 by the time the game started.  So if you were like me and bet on the game at the last minute, you had to take the Bengals as 3 point favorites, which means the Bengals had to win by more than 3 points for me to win.  Dumb bet by me.

 

At least others have taken on this task.

 

Thank you.

Channelling Les Nessman. Cincy media's gone to poo ever since WKRP went off the air.

 

Here's how lame Cincinnati people are.

 

There is a radio station there called WKRC.  They used to use the WKRP song, but when the song came to "P", they punched in a bunch of singers who didn't sound at all like the original singers, singing "C" in a different key.

 

This went on for years, and they probably thought it was awesomely clever.

If the Panthers want to make the point that the NFL forced them to do this, they could replace the midfield NFL logo with a Panther logo.
