Win totals?  Did somebody ask about win totals?

How do you feel about Georgia’s over/under at 10?

    I pretty much screamed here a few weeks ago that Marriott’s stock price of $46 was a guaranteed handsome payoff; the same applied here to UGA at 10.

    Take the over.

    • Yeah, but in the same breath you predicted COVID-19 would kill fewer than 16,000 in the USA. How’s that prediction looking a few weeks later?

      I have a relative I love dearly, but he has a habit of vomiting out bold predictions. Probably hundreds a week if anyone actually counted. And then he has an equally consistent habit of picking only those predictions which ended up coming true and saying “SEE!!! I TOLD YOU!!!

      Just saying.

        LOL, I only check this blog once a week, but I remember this specific Grantham dude guaranteeing COVID wouldn’t be in the top 10 causes of death just last week. It’s already in the top 3 just days later.

        Safer bet would be just to do the opposite of whatever he says.

    10 is right because the QB position is unknown. Personally I think Newman will be fine and would take the over.

    In February, I would have bet the over with gusto. I still lean in that direction, but I’m becoming concerned about the lack of preparation time that our offense is apparently going to have to install a new offense and rep it, to get a new quarterback meshed with our players, and integrating freshmen. The reason I still lean towards the over is just about that defense.

    I’ll take all the unders, becsuse I don’t think we’ll be playing that many games.

    Well, Marriott has done quite well and we haven’t come close to the 16k threshold yet, so let’s at least wait until we pass that before barking too much. With that said, I agree that we most likely will blow by that 16k number.

    Sorry – I’m an optimist at heart, especially when it comes to otherwise soon and gloom events like this; hence my optimism that the death toll would stay low. Most of my predictions generally turn out well, and nobody is ever close to being anywhere near 100% right.

    The over/under on Georgia’s wins in 2020 is zero. There won’t be any amateur or professional sports in 2020. Maybe in 2021.

    We will win at least 11. 10 is under

    What do they do if they only play 8 games? What is the payout on winning 8 games? You didn’t make the over, and you did hit the under even though you won all your games. I think it’s crazy to even be thinking about it.

    I’m sure the over/under is based upon playing a full season and that’s iffy. Add to that the uncertainty of a new QB and team getting together and competing without committing game-ending errors and you have a perfect market for Gamblers Anonymous members only to compete.

    Too early to lay a wager as to whether you can lay a wager. We ain’t there yet.

    Now, if you want to lay a wager on total infections and possible deaths that may occur by opening the season up early using idiot administrators and unsuspecting players in test cases, I’m your guy.
