How do they get these odds, I really don’t see how unless they hear stuff or do they just go off rumors?

The House always wins.  Suckers will bet on anything.

Before we hired Matt Rhule last year, betting odds on the next Panthers head coach had Greg Roman as the favorite, followed by Jason Garrett, Dan Quinn, Jim Harbaugh, Marvin Lewis and even Bill Cowher among many others, none of whom even got an interview. Josh McDaniels was scheduled for one at least, but it didn't happen.

Might as well have just picked names out of hat.

(heck, for all I know, they did).

Oddsmakers are pretty good at point spreads and such but generally don't know sh-t about stuff like this.

Once we had a candidate list, and they still got it wrong.

Think I saw a list for GM candidates too. It was just as bad.

Can't look into Vegas odds, point spreads etc. 

It all fluctuates on the money, encouraging other people to bet on other options. 

Someone comes in and makes a sizeable bet on the Panthers, we become the betting favorites in an attempt to encourage other betters to put money on other teams. 

Theres no inside information or substantial know how involved. 

House always wins.
