Bookmakers don't say "favored". People who don't know anything about odds think a team giving points means they are favored to win. Bookmakers use lines that split the money.

betting lines aren't predictions

they are made for books to make the most amount of money

you're like a kid that is convinced that something they just made up is totally correct.

so, does that mean NCSU is expected to win or lose by 1.5 points? is there any information in that line which says which team is expected to win and which one is expected to lose?

It means the people who set that line found it would make them the most money. Why do you think lines move? You can infer that a spread picks favorites because the differential makes a bettor question which side they want to put money on, so it's usually right at a break point, but that's not what it's for. Vegas doesn't pick winners.

NCSU -1.5 basically means thats what bookies set the line at (State wins by 2 or more points) in order to get plenty of bets for both NCSU and FSU...but you gotta figure about a 3 point swing for home court advantage if not more, ie FSU would be favored by 1.5 or more if it was in Talahassee

basically the only people who would actually think State was the proper Vegas pick was idiots in Vegas who are like "well i haven't watched either of these teams play but they have similar records and NC State is at home so I'm gonna put a month's mortgage payment on this game because I don't know anything"...and also UNC fans who go to Guster concerts

This is kind of a pedantic argument right now. Obviously the oddsmakers or experts or whoever don't set the lines based on who they think will win, but in the sense that the spreads are adjusted based on whether too many people are betting on one side or the other it's a decent approximation of popular opinion on how the game will go.

SVP is about to talk about the ejections on his show.


His tease was. "it's tough on the road. It's tougher at home when the refs kick out two of your legends"

Bilas broadcasts ACC games...he's not going to publicly throw the league under the bus...kinda like Gminski on The Drive this afternoon...Taylor and Marc were basically like "come on, something doesn't add up" etc and Gminski had to tiptoe around the issue...wonder what Bilas or G-Man would say off the air, probably that Hess is a complete asshole

He was fairly nuetral. Leaning more towards Hess doing the wrong thing.

Went something like this:

Would this have happened in the dean dome or Cameron....blah blah. Highly doubt it.

I understand the refs have a thankless job..blah blah blah. No one knows your name till you screw up.. blah blah blah

I've heard several people complain how the refs in the ACC have egos..blah blah blah

Then later on Andy Katz was on and basically said Hess was wrong. Also said something along the lines of "Does State have an inferiority complex? Maybe, but this is a legit reason to be upset"


Nevermind. They changed it from "ejection" to "fans"

^ +1, Wilbon stuck up for Googs/Corch and trashed Hess. Great to hear, hopefully it will result in a suspension at a minimum.

Does anyone have a link to a large good quality image of Hess for future sign purposes?
The statsheet website has a poster size image of Ayers but basically a postcard sized image of Hess.

if you didnt hear it, he basically said what hess did was crazy but he didnt go overboard dissing the officials or anything like that...so if anybody makes a big deal out of it, it will be the ACC or Swofford or somebody...which will just make them look even dumber for acting like they werent the ones who fucked up

eh, maybe...but ESPN will rip them a new a-hole, as much as we hate the Glorious Worldwide Leader they have a little clout...i think if/when the ABC11 interview "gets out" (again) people will be like "yeah, he's right, no doubt"
