    Bears -8 over 33

    Thoughts?

    I'm almost certainly playing the over. A lot is being made of the field conditions and the cold but I'm not sure how much any of that matters to be honest. Rain, snow, and cold weather do not have major impacts on NFL offenses. Wind is really the only adverse weather that really impacts totals in the NFL and I'm not aware of any freakish wind expected tomorrow night. Even with Joe Webb starting I think both offense have enough playmakers to move the ball and score. Having 2 QB's starting who you can expect to throw in some turnovers doesn't hurt either. Also, you have 2 of the most dynamic kick returners in the game with Hester and Harvin so you can probably count on that impacting a drive or two with good field position. As long as the # is below 34 I think the over is a chance worth taking. :twocents:

    makes since...

    However I can see your reasons being the reason to take the under as well. inexperience qb for minn, hester and harvin are gonna be ineffective because they are gonna be trying to make breaks and cuts while playing on a parking lot.

    I have now idea which way this one will go. I think the bears win but could see a very low scoring game just as easily as a 27-10 game.


    So what I'm saying if I don't fuckin know.

    Think it's actually harder for the defenders than the players running at them. Hester nearly broke 3 or 4 last week on NE even though they were destroyed. I expect Cutler to be more ready for the conditions. Huge game for Webb. He's got weapons to help him out.

    3.3 on over 33 sounds good
    2.2 on Bears -2 and over 27 as well
    I'm saying 24-16 Bears

    These weekday cbb slates have just been awful last 2 weeks.

    im thinking 3 or 4 team super teaser, which would give me bears +2.5/+5.5 and over 23/20, with an open spot for later in the week.

    Favre upgraded to questionable. might play.

    the difference with this field and others is that it is frozen. all other NFL fields have heating elements that run under them to keep the ground from freezing. The frozen field will be what makes cutting difficult...

    My final bets for Monday Night:

    3 units: Over 33
    2 units: Vikings +220

    Don't really think the Vikings will win but at those odds and with Favre starting I think it's worth a stab.

    Also playing with a little bit of a house money since I think my bookie scored by Lions/Skins under 43 bet as win instead of a push since he had me up additional money when he gave me my total today. :woot:

    I had that happen to me a few years ago with my local. I would text him my plays, but he ended up being in the mountains and had no service. I probably had one of my worst days of gambling ever and I was expecting to be down ~$300 and paying him. Instead I was up ~$200 and he had to pay me.

    +10.5 today with the Man City play I posted yesterday. :chatzy:

    Tmrw I get cocky and make dumbass bets.

    Barca over 2.5 team goals though is a pretty money bet tmrw if you can get that. Playing a team giving up over 2 goals a game on the road and Barca are an unstoppable force right now. Gotta check though if they are playing all the starters.
