    "Friday in Nevada on the Rams (+120) over the Patriots"

    Does that mean he wins $1.20 for every dollar bet if the Rams win?

    Yes.

    Conversely (-120) means wager $1.20 to win $1.00.

    I'm thinking about splitting my pick, and putting 1/2 a pick on the pats and 1/2 a pick on the rams. That way I wind up with 71/2 winners, and nobody can tie me in the playoffs, which would make me the Super Bowl champ.
    I'll bet you could have gotten good odds on me winning the Super Bowl, when the season started. :)

    Yes, so what are you going to do with the $1.20 if you win it? :)

    I'm going to go with the Patriots, but I give the Rams a good shot. I like Brady's poise, and versatility, and I believe he wants to make this his last hurrah. Hoping for a good game, and clean, fair officiating. Interested to see, what kind of tricks, these two coaches, come up with. Should be great. Go Pats, make it Brady VI. :)

    1st Quarter......0.12 left......0-0........Boring. Put on a pot of coffee, back off of the beer.......
    Best commercials so far.......Bud Light corn syrup; Hyundai elevator; Hobbs movie
    Rams doing nothing offensively, lucky that it's 0-0

    Halftime NE 3- LAR 0..................Disappointing YAWNER! Now the musical kneelers.
    Time to go to the can. Switching to FOX.

    3rd Quarter......4:00 left..... Still 3-0......Best commercials: NFL HOF party; Bud Light (Game
    of Thrones); Mercedes Benz change......Rams inside the Pats 30......Finally, they only have about 150 yards of offense and still might win the game. What was the over/under? 56 1/2!

    End of 3......3-3
    Question- Who will be the game's MVP? Edelman

    Rams offense basically non existent.

    They are lucky it's only 3-0.

    Apparently no one wants to win this game. Feels like the 49'ers playing the Arizona Cardinals.

    I forgot to check, what color were Adam Levine's shoes? That was a prop bet.

    SuperBowl....

    1. Bases loaded (1-0)

    1. Twelve4s (1-0)
    1. von duck (1-0)
    2. MisterInside (0-1)
    2. yacraps (0-1)
    2. TDVegas (0-1)


    Totals....Final

    1. von duck (8-3)
    2. TDVegas (6-5)
    2. MisterInside (6-5)
    2. Twelve4s (6-5)
    2. Bases loaded (6-5)
    3. yacraps (4-7)

    Thoughts......

    -Overall, an uneventful, boring game.
    -Rams were in it but never seemed in it.
    -Terrible halftime show, IMO.
    -Brady gets another ring

    And that's a wrap....
