Trap game. I wouldn't touch the spread.

The over/under is 46.5, I'd take the over all day.

We owe Rivers after that comeback from a few years ago at the Linc.

It would be nice to pay him back.

How can anyone make a decision about this game before knowing the availability of all of the injured Eagles?

That's actually the point, preliminary lines allow degenerate gamblers to get in on a 'steal' of a line, precisely because of the point you make. Lots of people were betting +1 LAC last night.

And oh look! Now many places have it as a PK (even) or the Chargers as a 1 point favorite, presumably because of Sproles and Cox, as well as the betting trends. I'd wager the Eagles will be at least 2 point dogs going into this one. I still wouldn't touch the spread, but the over still looks good, having crept up to 47 and probably will go higher.

Going into the game the spread was LAC -2, the over/under 47.5 - share your stories of cashing in on the over!

I bet small on Eagles + 1.5.

I rarely bet over/unders.

Dangerous pick but paid off. Over/unders are easier to hit IMO than spreads, at least consistently.

How about that Chiefs/Redskins finish? The line was Wash +7.5, which I was planning on betting heavy - then I had to deal with an emergency before I actually placed the bet and started watching the game in the 3rd, cursing myself. The over/under was 48.5 which I wouldn't have touched.

Of course, the Abominable Walrus calls timeout with 8 seconds left before attempting a game winning field goal - you know, just in case Washington had any miracles up their sleeves. 4 seconds left, time for some lateral attempts. Then that disaster of a play occurs, and the Chiefs cover AND the over is hit on the same last garbage play.

I don't even want to know what I would've done if I had bet on it - I wonder what the over/under is on television sets around the country being broken by flying remotes after that.

I saw that.

Both the game and over/under changed on that one play.

A guy in my son's fantasy football league won 100 on the last play as he had KC -7.
