Tom,

Do you proof read anything you write? It makes no sense that the people betting on the Steelers and the bookies would be "thrilled" if 66% of the money was placed on the Steelers. By saying "also" it suggests that both are thrilled, not one or the other. I obviously realize that the people betting on the Steelers are not "thrilled". Come on man, you write and blog for a living.

Yo Rick...just started following professional sports? Been playing too much intermural mahjong? Roof top bocci over for the year?
The Steelers were 4.5 point favorites...that means the Chargers won the spread by 3.5...with 66% on the Steelers (giving up 4.5 points) the Steeler betters lost big time making the bookies quite happy.
I admit reading Sorenson's stuff is generally like doing a doing a cryptogram after 3-4 Martini's but in this case...he was pretty straight up....

The bookies weren't "thrilled" that 66% of the money went on the Steelers, they were thrilled that 66% of the money went on the Steelers and the STEELERS DIDN'T COVER, which means they don't have to pay out on those bets. Lopsided betting doesn't thrill the bookies, because it puts them in line for big losses. But it does thrill them when all the money goes one way and those bets don't pay.

Mike,

Wow, I guess Rick thought Tom was the only clueless one writing on this blog. Too much time sleeping in class?

Tom;
"And now everybody that had bet on the Steelers was thrilled."

Mike;
"the Steeler betters lost big time making the bookies quite happy."

This is silly but I cant resist...of course the bookies are "thrilled" also known as "quite happy"...Pittsburgh didnt cover...betters on Pittsburgh lost...SD won the BET 14.5 to Pittsburgh 11....they took the bets and didnt have to pay out...THEY MADE MONEY! Shhesh Shawn...talk about "sleeping in class"....that middle school PE double period took its toll today huh?

This comment goes for Rick, the self proclaimed editor of Tom talks, dude do you really read these articles so you can correct their grammar? I mean I can understand criticizing there opinions but there grammar? Save that for the elementary school kids who need it, please. Because no one cares moron! I get so sick of reading these posts and hearing all the negativity from the fair weather panthers fans as it is but having to hear some douche bag try to correct grammar just puts me over the top.

I had money on the Chargers. I also had money on the Chargers when Hochuli took my money. The refs got even with me.
