Conference only over/under win totals

Via Brett McMurphy:

What looks like a better bet, Georgia and the over, or Vandy and the under?

Also, I don’t know how to break it to South Point, but their win totals add up to 56.5.  Since there are only 56 conference wins for the taking, somebody’s definitely hitting the under.

  3. Somebody educate me, please! If I see -110, does that mean I can bet $100 to win $110? And if the listing is +110, I have to bet $110 to win $100?

      This C&P does it better than I can explain it quickly.

      Odds expressed in terms of money, with $100 being the standard. If the odds are minus (–), then that amount of money must be wagered to win $100. (e.g. –150 means you must bet $150 to win $100.) If the odds are plus (+), that amount of money would be earned on a successful $100 wager. (e.g. +150 means you make $150 on a $100 wager.) Money line is also sometimes referred to as “American Odds.”

      • So, in Georgia’s case, if I bet $130 on the under (-130) and Georgia wins fewer than 7 conference games, I win $100, plus I get my original $130 back. If I bet $100 on the over (+110) and Georgia wins 8 conference games, I win $110, plus I get my $100 back.

        If Georgia wins 7 conference games, I get back my original bet, whatever it was.

          Yes. If you bet $100 on Georgia at -130, you get your original $130 back plus another $100. If you bet $100 on Georgia at +110, you get your original $100 bet back plus another $110. And if Georgia wins exactly 7 conference games, the bet is a push and you get a refund of your bet.

    Re sports gambling, who here has hit up either of the “books” open at the Cherokee Casinos or any of the ones in Biloxi…any thoughts?

      FWIW, I have had two friends go up to Harrah’s Cherokee (but not Valley River) and they both said that the new book is extremely nice. One of my business partners goes to Biloxi a few times a year and said it is also nice though apparently it was converted from a restaurant into the book.

        I’ve been to some of the Biloxi books. They are smaller, obviously, than Vegas. Harra’s is very small and right at the end of the floor, and you can sit and watch the games, but you’re basically sitting in the casino watching football.

        Golden Nugget is older looking and I can’t remember the seating, but I do think there is a sports-type bar right there to watch the games.

        Beau Rivage (spelling is probably wrong) is the nicest I have seen there. Sort of like a smaller version of what you get in Vegas. Nice seating. Craft beer joint right there with bar food. I also think there is a bourbon bar on one side.

        One difference to me is that you don’t get as many free drink credits as in Vegas. Also seems like there are less betting options, though i think the same companies run them.

      Cherokee’s is nice, but not enough seating.

  5. I’m having trouble understanding why many see TN all that differently than SC?
