7.5 is where it sits now so if its not moving the betting public thinks 7.5 is fine. It started at 9.5 and moved down to 7.5 from 9.5 down to where it is now is probably where most of the money hit the other side. If that was still too much it would fall even further.

The 9.5 is from offshore online betting house.
I think you have to pay a little premium to get that.
It's a sort of a teaser bet, but don't quote me on that.

To be honest with you, I don't know how much I can believe on the reporting amount of bets. It's like the stock market, you just don't know how those speculators can drive or put down a certain stock at a given moment in time.

Like right now I just check, all the Vegas lines hold steady at 7.5 for the last couple of days, but MGM just raised it to 8.5

Just like the stock market more than one thing can impact pricing. MGM's book alone could be getting texans heavy so increase the chances people will take the Vikings to offload risk

A betting books ideal situation is to have the same dollar amout on both side at the same odds and they take the juice

I have no idea about the power play, which way it turns.

All I know is when you're in play, you're relevant.

You're more objective than he is. It's easier to buy you as a Texans' fan than it is to see "BullBlitz" as anything other than a Colt troll.
