    It can’t argue with this. Very plausible.

    No, the goal is to get equal action (in terms of equity) on both sides, thereby ensuring the book earns a profit.

    If the goal was simply to entice as many incorrect bets as possible, you'd set the line at 1,000 to 1 for every NFL team. That would ensure you a billion incorrect bets on 31 NFL teams.

    Unfortunately, the correct bets would totally ruin you.

    Whoever made those rankings is retarded. Are the Jets really worse than the Redskins? Dolphins? Cardinals? What about the Giants? How many games does Eli start before Giants fans storm Giants stadium (yes, its still Giants stadium)? There are at least a half a dozen teams - probably more - that are worse than us on paper and in every other way pre-season.

    Getting the Bills and Browns both at Home to start the season is a gift from the football Gods. It doesn't get easier than that.

    less than 2-0 to start and I'm disappointed.

    i mostly look for a weakish start to the season and a relatively strong finish. in general, that's a common pattern with second year QB's. IMO its a tough schedule but throw in a key injury or 2 or 3 and this thing easily could implode into a 3 win season. not expecting that but its possible with the jets lack of depth in secondary and OL.

    I don’t love going against Garrett and Vernon, but I agree we have a chance to win both. Crucial to get at least 1 before going to Foxborough.

    I'd rather go into the season as underdogs.

    '09 & '10 we were disrespected right into the AFCC game...

    Just don't get your hopes up that we're going to be good. We're probably going to finish around 8-8. And that's assuming the players don't pack it in when we start 1-4 or something like that.

    Being home these two games is a gift from God, but Bills & Browns aren't going to be easy games. We can't sleep on either team or for sure we will be 0 & 2 before we know it.

    We'd better not start 0-2 because the next four games are against the Patriots, Eagles, Cowboys, and Patriots again. Then we get an easy stretch against the Jaguars, Dolphins, Giants, Redskins, Raiders, Bengals, and Dolphins again (our last three are against the Ravens, Steelers, and Bills in Buffalo), so we could end up with a winning record by December. But I'm afraid the team will blow up before we get to that easy stretch.

    The Browns division is weakening. The Ravens lost some key defenders, the Bengals are just bad, and Pitt lost alot of talent . Hate on Mayfield but he's well ahead of Darnold at this point, the Browns had a solid roster, but a HC and OC who were too busy backstabbing each other to guide the team. Add Beckham, Hunt for the second half and playoffs, Richardson, Vernon,Gaines,Burnett, drafting Greedy Williams solidified their backfield and Takitaki and Wilson are both good athletic LBs. They could easily win their division, at the very least, they should be a wild card team.
    That doesn't even account for the difference between the O lines.

    This is correct
    It’s about “balancing” the bets

    I doubt it. That team has been a loser for far too long to simply forget what made them suddenly start winning. They also are a much more talented team than the Jets. They've been picking top 5 for a long time. The Jets have been picking at 6 for the past 3 years and their GM stripped the team of talent purposely because he was too cheap to pay for it.

    the AFC North is still the very best division in the conference.

    The time to make that determination is in January, not now.

    The Browns o-line is pretty bad. It’s the glaring weakness of their offense and, just like ours, has the potential to render the skill position talent useless.

    And I’m not saying they aren’t a playoff teams. I’m saying that having them as a potential super bowl team is way too premature for a team that still hasn’t proven it can get out of its own way.
