'Sway' 101 - Give the team the bettors favored some ticky tack calls and a few non calls in the 1st half, and then favor the other team entirely in the 2nd half with calls and non calls.
This is what yesterday's game felt like, the Saints seemed to get all the questionable calls and non calls in the 2nd half.
I was surprised Payton didn't win his 2nd challenge, and was halfway expecting the ref to find a foot out of bounds, a footprint on the white line, a knee down, or SOMETHING against the Vikes on the final play.
The Saints had the point spread covered, even if the Vikes got a FG, and it took a miracle for the Vikes to have a shot at covering. There was more betting on the Vikes to cover 3 1/2 - 4 1/2, must have been close to even betting at 5, or it would have went higher.
We have a thread for this. It's called conspiracy theories in the Lounge Area.
It doesn't need it's own. Sorry.
Hate the message, not the messenger.
Enjoy the process; crave the goal.
