I think we're gonna win, but good Lord take the points and bet the farm! Unless you can't afford to lose your farm...

Is San Diego that bad?

I wouldn't bet anything on any WCC team right now. Nobody has an idea of which team will show up on which night. I think it was a miracle we even won last night.

take the points! Geez, I thought the oddsmakers were supposed to actually watch the games...seems totally mispriced based on the how conference games have been shaking out.

As I was driving into the office today, I turned on my usual sports talk station and playing was its weekly sports gambling show (a glorified commercial, really). The host said to call his 800 number to get his winner for the "Gonzawga, San Diego." Buddy, if you can't properly pronounce the name of one of the schools, then I doubt that you can predict the winner. GO ZAGS!

21.5 pts? U gotta be kidding...I don't think we cover that, even at home. We win going away, but we'll play some weird rotations at the end and it will be closer than it needs to be. 15 would be more like it.

over the years, determined to beat the odds. "Remember, there's a reason there are so many tall buildings in Vegas . . . it's because most of your money stays here . . ."

Never bet on San Diego beating the spread. You never know which game the players have been paid to shave.

There is no way I would have taken the line on this. You had to know that Few was gonna not put the hammer down on Grier at the end of a game just to run up the score.

Yep, me and Mrs. Z have a brand new farm...way to lay off the gas in the last minute guys. ;)

Good thing I live in Spo Vegas and not Las Vegas. I would probably be down 50 farms by now.
