In case you were wondering…

Per Steele, Georgia has been favored three times in the Cocktail Party during the Richt era:  2002, 2003 and 2004.  Georgia managed to cover the spread only once in those three seasons.

Overall, though, Georgia under Richt is 4-4-1 ATS against Florida (1-3-1 against Meyer, though).

    What would the line be if Dawgnation knew Wagers & Co. was working Saturday’s game?

      To be fair, Penn n’Pals were working 2007, too. (And managed to almost get Stafford killed/screwed up a too-many-men call.)

    Well that and $1 will get you large tea at McDonalds. Can’t for the life of me understand why anybody cares what Vegas thinks. If Vegas didn’t exsist and we just played football, the game would be the same. They don’t need point spreads to play the ball games.

      Because point spreads are indicative of what the best predictors in the business (the Vegas people) think is going to garner the most action on both sides of a given line. So if the Vegas people think we’re a 3 point favorite to start things out, that is a relevant prediction to take into consideration.

      All of us thought the Miss. St. game was a sure fire win going into it, but Vegas (if I recall) essentially had the game listed as a pick ’em. There was a reason for that. They are on the money with their spreads more often than not.

        Listen dude, you need to not say things like that any more in public, in private or in print. Mentioning that Vegas guys have, shall we say, a really good idea about what is going to happen before the game is played, well, that isn’t exactly healthy. Do you know what I mean? People get to thinking, you know, how is that? Then they get to looking around. Then they might talk to the wrong people, like referees, and ask the wrong kinds of questions about income and that sort of thing. So, I make you this offer that you cannot refuse. You do not bring this up again, you do not mention any names like Wagers or Curles, you do not even think the name Slive and we will remain “friends.” Capice? Then all that will remain is our friendship.
