    A Quarter Point Favorite?

    According to SBR Odds, 5D was dealing a quarter point line at halftime in Minnesota...


    09/11 08:46 PM + -110 - -110
    09/11 08:46 PM -2 +140 +2 -160
    09/11 08:45 PM + -115 - +105
    09/11 08:44 PM + -110 - -110
    09/11 08:44 PM +2 -140 -2 +120




    The second half was a 13-13 tie.

    Not sure I've seen a quarter point line. In the end, I suppose it's not a pick 'em.

    Yes that 1/4 point is HUGE when it may be 1/3!

    Ive thought about this before, why chose -0.5?

    Sure its even and makes sense, but from a betting perspective its the same as -0.0001 or -0.9999

    Agreed Rich Boy, the half point is old school, from the beginning.

    Bronco's looking solid.

    What, you guys didn't hear that it's worth a 1/4 point to hit the upright with a kick? lol

    Haha funny. I had Vikes ML 2H (-115) on Heritage. Opened -135...lots of Saints backers were sweating that +1/2. Cook almost made them pay with that last run. After Brees got the predictable garbage time TD.

    I am sure they put the quarter point out there so if you bet it and win, they will say you took a shot on an obviously bad line. If you lost, no problem. That's how they roll down there.

    I don't think so Otters, I don't think that's being offered for NFL halftimes, but good thinking, maybe you're on to something.

    lol. Guess don't matter much if it a half point, qrtr point, third of a point or whatever. I would sell half a point and take the -.75 tho!
