    Headed to Vegas in the morning

    I am headed to Vegas in the morning to reek havoc on the city of lights.
    We have six of us going specifically for the opening weekend games and the MNF double header.
    Collectively we have a few good ideas on wagers we want to place.


    I typically have a rule against betting on the Vikes.
    I am just too emotional to rationally judge the outcome of a Vikes game; not to mention I feel like I somehow could jinx them
    :P.

    So I have a question: should I make a wager or just enjoy the game?
    Here are the lines.

    Vikes -3
    O/U 36

    Gamble away.
    It's a good rule to not bet with a team that you're emotionally attached to.
    I would go with the under in points if I had to choose for that game, and, no, I won't take the blame if you lose your shirt gambling.

    Short spread on the game, tough bet to be indifferent about as a Vikes fan.
    I would go under though.
    36 is high for that game.

    LOL thanks for the advice.
    Should be a good time regardless.
    But if I lose my shirt, I might as well stay out there.
    The Mrs. wouldn't let me back in the house.
    ;D

    Good luck my friend. I haven't bet on an actual Vikes game since they beat the Bears by 1.
    I gave the guy the 3 points.

    Sad day indeed.

    Stay away from that game.
    Bet on the Chargers and Eagles.
    They will both cover the spread.
    Good luck.
    Have a great time.
    I have been out there on the opening NFL weekend twice.
    It is a great time to go.
