The point spread and over/under on Sunday’s Indianapolis Colts-Buffalo Bills game didn’t start showing up on Las Vegas oddsboards until Saturday night.
By 9 a.m. Sunday, the forecast had worsened. Salmons opened Twitter and saw reports from New Era Field of blinding snow.
“People were saying they couldn’t see the other end of the field,” Salmons said.
The Colts-Bills total closed at around 36 at most sportsbooks, the lowest for any game this season, according to sports betting database BetLabSports.com.
Despite the low total, bets on the over were few and far between. At William Hill’s Nevada sportsbook, 95 percent of the money bet on the Colts-Bills total was on the under. The Bills won 13-7 in overtime.
Oddsmakers at MGM debated on what number to post on the over/under for the second half. They ended up going with 14 — and they still took all under money.
“What are you supposed to put up when they’re playing in eight inches of snow?” MGM vice preside Jay Rood said. “That was our worst game of the morning.”
“There are things guys have been working on and talking with the league about how we can amplify the voices of the players to draw attention to the injustices and issues of equality that we’re trying to highlight — help us with solutions and try to make our communities better,” Jenkins said following the Eagles’ win over the Panthers on Oct. 12. “So, if that gets accomplished, we can move on.”
The kids come and kiss me before naptime as Tom Brady hits Gronk on a 3rd and 7. The Pats are already up 7-0 after running a fake punt on 4th and 9 deep in their own territory, and they soon double their lead with a TD to Gronk. I’m fine calling this one over.
