    Football betting season is almost upon us. I took my dogs out for a walk on I believe it was Saturday and it was a bit cooler after that heat wave I could practically smell the 12PM kickoff.

    Figured you guys could leave this on the main page for a couple days or a week or so before moving it to Virtual Vegas @Brook! @Cman65 as we only had a couple participants last year discussing stuff.

    @Lon Chaney @IDFjet @Brook! @BrowningNagle @DefenseWinsChampionships @Jetsfansince95 & anyone I missed. I know @Acad23 plays with some scheckles as well.

    For sure man--I already put down futures bets on WFT over 8.5 wins and win NFC East. Good odds +220 on winning the east.

    I always thought you were a local guy - where do you live that there's a noon game time?

    A far as betting season, everyday events are suddenly more expensive - I got a burger and a couple of beers the other night and I was down $150 by the time I left and my last trip to the barber hit me up for $228. Pools, pools and more pools.

    College football, Riley-Bird.

    Bookies gotta adjust for inflation just like everyone else.

    Careful betting futures this year. Make sure you read your books fine print. This year the NFL has come out and said they will give forfeits to teams because of COVID protocols. Most books require a team to play 17 games in order cash your bet even if your team / bet was smashed and you won.

    Example - Herbert over 4500 passing yards. He gets 4500 by week 11, but week 13 they win a game because of a forfeit. You would get your money back because he only played in 16, not 17, even though he covered the bet by a landslide.

    I really like them as well this year. That D is nasty and they are loaded on offense. All Fitz has to do is not play hero ball..

    They did. They haven’t approved anyone to operate though. Cuomo wanted it to be run by the state lotto commission which is a bad idea and is going to take a while to for them to get set up. It would have been faster, easier and probably more profitable to just let private books operate. Last I heard is they hope to have it up in time for playoff football. Not sure what will happen that cuomo is out.

    Yikes, what a bunch of idiots. Sports betting prints money for the government.

    Good thing I live in NJ!

    So did some checking. They scrapped the lotto idea. They’re in the process of taking bids on who will be the operators . They don’t expect online betting to be up before the super bowl.

    looking forward to it. Will save a lot of money not having to drive across the border just to place a bet. Money saved will go towards betting ha

    By the way, Illinois has got the stupidest rule I think. Mobile betting is allowed only after you register, in-person, at one of the affiliated casinos

    I wonder if they do that for age verification. Keep the kids from getting on?

    could be. But you have to submit your SS number just to use the app in the 1st place. That should be enough

    Nah they verify the fuck out of you on the apps. Some of them automatically link your bank account without inputting any bank information just from your SS, name and address.

    BTW - if any one needs any refer a friend links I have some for different books. Some give out free bets and what not (mutually beneficial for both of us to be transparent).

    Word of advice to anyone who hasn't explored it too in NJ - if you bet through your deposit bonus, go find another book. There are a million out there and all of the casinos have sportsbook apps now too. Don't make a first deposit without getting a bonus. If you've only ever used one, go find a other. There's bonus money out there.

    Oklahoma Sooners +750 to win the national championship.

    Tennessee Titans -150 to make playoffs.

    $500 on each. Set it and forget it. Collect your winnings in new year.

    Social Security cards used to say along the bottom "Not to be used for purposes of identification."
