Honestly tonight might be the Lakers' best chance to win before their 18th game of the season, on December 2 at Detroit. But I still think they're not winning.
    Pray for Charles Barkley.

    I think Barkley has some integrity and will play this out to his untimely death
    Actually I think this is a brilliant way to lose weight.

    Besides, a human can go a month without eating, so Sir Charles will be ok as long as they can pull it out in Detroit.

    That GB TD run by Lacey was a clinic in blocking. Immaculate.

    Michaels: "We're not gonna flex out of the 2nd half here, are we?"

    line is moving fast. Now GB -9 (was -7.5 earlier)


    By, "Pummel", I was thinking 14-21 pts...

    51-42 Hornets at the half. Not what I was hoping for, but it was 35-32 with 4 min left in the half, so now at least I have a chance at the over.

    Hornets collapse in the 3rd.

    Looks like I will lose both, barring a miracle.

    I mean the bears have been embarrassed a few times the past few weeks but was this team supposed to be good or something? They havent made the playoffs in 5 years

    pre-season, the Bears were picked to win the division and go far in playoffs, due to their offensive weapons and solving their defensive needs in the offseason



    all chicago sports radio shows today are fantastic!

    Then they took out San Francisco in San Fran & that prediction/hype looked pretty good.

    I think Trestman is done @ the end of the year if not sooner which is too bad because I like him but what else are they gonna do?

    Its funny because I talked to a bunch of Bears fans preseason and they were all talking shit that Peppers was done and Jared Allen was the mesiah like it was fact. I dont know anyone with a brain that picked them to win the division though.

    Michael Irvin picked Cutler for MVP of the league. He should get docked pay for that stupid ass shit.

    As a Packer fan and Bear hater of course I will say this. Chicago is the only team that deals with injuries as much as GB the last 3-4 years, and this year GB is alot healthier then Chicago.

    I just dont know why they fired a really good coach for a guy in the CFL. I mean hes in the CFL for a reason.

    When I first saw this, I had seen a bookie post that the Pittsburgh game was their single highest winning game of the year, but after that it was a blood bath.

    Just going to state the obvious here that I am no Haralabob sportsbetting expert, but rather just a Lakers (and NBA) fan who decided to make some bets this year because I have money on Bovada (and because I think the degree of the Lakers' crappiness isn't fully understood).

    With that said, I think yesterday's O/U pick was a mistake, and not just in hindsight after it lost. I don't so much regret the spread pick (even though that lost much worse), as Charlotte just completely crapped the bed in the 3rd quarter and blew the game, but I felt the logic behind the pick was still sound.

    But why don't I like the O/U anymore? Charlotte has a different playstyle than the Lakers. They are much more in the slow/defensive camp than the fast/offensive camp. I felt that the Lakers' porous defense would render that irrelevant, and it was hard to picture a team that allowed 117 points per game for the first 5 games (and even more at the end of last season) holding the Hornets below 100.

    However, the bet was a mistake because a team not known for its scoring (or fast pace) can still have trouble putting up high scores, even against poor defensive lineups. And on the flip side, they are more likely to stifle a fast offense used to putting up a lot of points. The Lakers did get up their usual 100-110 point output (107 in this case), but indeed Charlotte could not find an offensive rhythm and scored 15 fewer points than the previous Lakers opponents averaged.

    My conclusion? I would much rather put my money on over 211 when it's the Lakers versus a high/medium-high scoring squad (where it's more likely to play fast and like an All Star game) than 203 against a non-scoring squad like Charlotte.

    That's not to say I think the under was necessarily a good pick here, either. Indeed, the game still came within 4 points of tying (and beating the final line), but I'm saying it was too unpredictable and better just to stay away.
