    Post Vegas Lines Contest, WEEK 8 Results and Overall

    Reb32 nailed 4 of 4 bets for the week's best pickings and pulls into a first place tie with Dr.SS, whom zero'd.. A lot of gurus hit all or nothings, while only 3 gurus zero'd. The best week by far, and the first week the gurus have collectively shown a profit at the Vegas window.

    Thanks for putting this together. I basically got back in the black by betting against Florida. Also, Vanderbilt tends to cover the spread when they are an underdog and never covers as a favorite.

    You were correct, as always, oh Godfather. You have been declared 2014 Vegas Lines Champion because nobody can win that much money the rest of the contest... And your boys won't have to breaka nobody elses legs for winning... So everybody wins.

    YW VP. As you said, you can learn a lot about your team playing the spread, which if you can completely keep homerism out, is always probably your best bet. Betting Arkansas mainly is what I've done so far. Even though....

    Just like my homer bet this week... I said before the line came out that I would have to get 8 1/2 to take Arkansas, and at minus 6 1/2 I'd take UGA....And what did I do?...Yep, homered out. With my preline figuring, I should have been all over UGA on the bet only minus 3 1/2. Pure stupid homerism...It will break you in Vegas. I'll not let that happen again. I'm trying to win this thing. Long way to go...Only half way there now with the bowl cards included.
