I will be the first person to admit that I know nothing about making sports bets. If you tell me what the over/under/spread/parlay is I will tell you that I have no idea what you’re talking about and go back to playing Pai Gow (seriously! It’s fun!)
However, I know dumb when I see it, and I just saw it.
Yesterday, Cantor Gaming released its win totals for the 2012 football season. They put the Bears at 8.5 wins (3rd in the NFC North) behind the Packers (12) and Lions (9.5).
I mean…is this a joke? With a healthy Jay Cutler and a newly stacked offense, the Bears can and will win more games than they did last year. This is a no-brainer. I don’t know who ultimately makes these decisions but putting them in the exact place they finished last season makes no sense considering the progress we’re seeing. I almost want to book a one way ticket to Vegas because this seems like easy money to me.
