Game pulled from Vegas boards?

Postby gatorspook » Wed Nov 21, 2012 1:06 pm

I'm not a gambler but have a good friend who is. He said the game has been pulled from the Vegas boards. I wouldn't know how to check it other than I just went to Mandalay Bay and it's off. But it's -8 at others.

The Mirage and Wynn don't have a line yet, but Caesars, Harrah's, Stations, William Hill and more have it at -7.5 or -8. I got it at Florida +7.5. The others will post a line closer to the weekend.

In other words, it's still there.

Am I reading this right? You figure +3 for homefield advantage, right? Reverse the venue and ask yourself whether UF is a 1.5-point dog to visiting FSU.

I'm not sure they break into double digits against our defense.

I hope yall are right. I heard all of this talk last year and then our offense came out and laid an EGG. I hope we can get something going offensively and that O-line actually blocks someone. Right now they would have a hard time blocking high school cheerleaders.

I'd say thats about hit it (+7.5ish) for even betting. I'm inclined to think more.
I do not like betting against the Gators.
I did not bet.
grip
a. Intellectual hold; understanding: a good grip on French history.
b. Ability to function properly or well; competence: getting a grip on the new technique.
c. Mental or emotional composure: lost his grip after he was fired.

Not a betting man so please excuse my ignorance.

When you say +7.5 does that mean it's in our favor.
Eexactly what is good +/- . And is the 7.5 the amount of points over the opponent?

Thanks

It means Florida is a 7.5 point underdog. (+* points given)

If you took fsu, it would be -7.5 in this case.

Edit for clarity*

Just checked. Florida is +260 on the money line. I like it too.
