    im not a rigtard but....

    in 35+ years of watching this shit i was never on the "its rigged" side

    but boy some of these games in the last month or so have really had me wondering

    anyone else agree or is this just par for the course?

    There is no doubt that some games weíve seen.....some of these college kids have been on the take. NBA totals are also sketchy. I donít believe Tim Donagy was a lone Wolfe. There is some scheming going on at the end of some of these games.

    More states have legal gambling. Student athletes have bills to pay. You do the math.

    you have to keep in mind that there's really only 2, maybe 3 good teams in this league. and those few teams only look good in comparison to the heap of trash that is the rest of the league. and there are 0 teams who are anywhere close to being great

    NBA - Lakers were the stand out team with Covid and that was clear. I won money betting on the Lakers.

    NFL - probably Pitt right now but they are getting the injury bug and falling off. KC and GB are also stand outs.

    Gotta see who is riding hot and healthy leading into the playoffs in all sports and go with that team.

    This would be a tough one to pull off since anytime there is some rigging going on there is abnormally heavy action on a game and Vegas works VERY closely with the NCAA (or whomever) in such cases. Word of "free" money spreads like wildfire (or faster). Especially amongst starving college kids.

    my hunch is there has always been influence on games. not sure if that means gambling "fixing" or just the sports wanting certain teams to win, etc. a lot of these calls are very convenient. i think it happens in all sports.

    KC and Pitt, both big public favorites, each had 6 dropped passes in their most recent games.
