    Why was I stupid enough to bet on a game being played in London, you wonder? Because I'm a stupid person.

    I have SF at +3, Baltimore at -6, Indy at +1, KC at -3, Sea at +3, Minny at +2 and Detroit at +3.5.

    I don't have the balls to bet on Houston at +14 because I am scared of Tom brady, and thus hate myself.

    I spent a grand total of 15 minutes researching those and part of me will be annoyed if I don't lose. But usually when I post about being a moron, it works out for me, so let's see if I can keep the trend alive.

    Regardless of whether I win money this weekend or not (it's looking good so far), my entire day will be ruined by not betting on Houston. The dumbest line of the week and I didn't take it because of my "gut".

    I use a lot of different ones, as you need to value shop. Pinnacle is probably the best overall, but it is kind of harsh and shitty for average bettors.

    Bet365 is pretty good.

    I don't know what the laws are in the US though.

    Thanks, I guess there's a lot of places that won't allow bets from the US. I THOUGHT WE WERE LAND OF THE FREE?!?!?!?!?

    I think 5dimes would work though, looking into it. I'm going to look into a lot of things.

    If you're just betting for fun, then it really doesn't matter where you go. 5dimes is fine, but have a bad reputation for trying to fuck long-term winners. But everywhere that isn't Pinnacle tries to do that.

    thx Trump for proving that one person (COLIN KAPERPEINREICKS) can make a difference.

    also managed to rally basically the entire NFL and most of the NBA against him

    who says he's not good at bringing people together?

    Kanmuk, hit me up before you bet on Jags again! The team is a rollercoaster so I'd avoid bets for/against them for the most part. However, I've been following the team religiously since 2006 and can tell you if a bet is good or not.

    For instance, this week vs NY Jets Jags are -4.5, the first time we have been favored in an away game since 2008.

    I think the Jags will win, but that 4.5 line is tough.

    Both defenses are the strong points in this game. But Jags D is better. And I think the Jags have more weapons on offense as well. Bortles is prone to turnovers, and Jets D shut down Lynch and Ajayi, so Jags may be forced to pass.

    My prediction for game is 19 - 13 Jags win by two field goals. So I would take Jags. A tough bet though.

    Everything you said may be true, but there is no fucking way I am taking a team as 3-4 point road favourites after a three game sample of them not being terrible. Especially when Jacksonville is travelling back from London and the Jets have no travel. I bet on numbers, not on teams and players.

    BUT, I am tempted to take the under after reading that (39). That line may be designed to bait people into taking the over, when in fact it may be two teams that can't score on each other.

    Alright, Yogr, if Jacksonville ends up scoring 44 points again, I am leaving 400 bad reviews for your game.
