    The line makers are paid to make lines that will get an even amount of money on both sides, so unless we are calling all gamblers fools, then your statement couldn't be further from the truth

    You're correct MH. And it would be a slight exaggeration to label all gamblers fools. Allow me re-phrase: Gamblers, (the insider term used in Vegas to describe oddsmakers) despite setting game spreads to attract bets on both teams, have a knack for making fools of partisan bettors, blinded by loyalty to their favorite teams.
