Nick Goff: Learn the Quarterbacks and gradually develop opinions on all 32 of them. I remember going an entire season betting on JaMarcus Russell when there was an ongoing discussion as to whether his throwing motion was the worst in the history of the game.
This is actually the greatest angle in the history of NFL betting. Tony Dungy is an idiot. He usually tips up games on ESPN. The more he likes a team, the more you should bet the other way. While you should be very wary of any long-term trends in NFL betting there are some reliable signals you can follow to find some decent value bets and our panel have a few to get you going.
Although Nick Goff offers a word of caution. Brad Allen: LA Chargers QB Philip Rivers is one to back as a dog: His record against the spread as of October last year: Underdog: 41-24 (63.
Brad Allen loves to back the Chargers and their QB Philip Rivers as underdogs. The main point appears to be look to the skies, in more ways than one.
Travel and time zone factors are also a huge consideration. For exampleif the 49ers are playing a 1pm game in the Eastern Time Zone, their bodies are on a 9am time clock and this is generally worth about 2pts to the home team.
Brad Allen: I like the weather angles. Wind is a big one that is underrated by the market. Per a 2014 study, wind speeds of 10 mph are estimated to reduce quarterback ratings by 1.
According to Pinnacle research, in the 50 games in recent years when average wind speed was 20 mph or greater, the average total was 38. Wind makes passing the ball so much harder and therefore sends points totals lower, whereas snow actually slows down defensive players as much as offensive ones and sometimes markets overreact.
People see snow and bet the under to a point where the line sometimes moves far enough that taking a contrarian view can be the right long term play. Neil Channing: I like quirky angles like betting against teams that have been involved in big games, or those that have gone into overtime or if they have played Thursday and then need to play again on the Monday.
I also like to oppose teams after big breaks. By the same token the game before teams travel to London seems to have a psychological impact and I love to look at all those more subtle factors. One interesting one is to bet against teams who play at home at Thanksgiving.
It sounds counterintuitive, but those on the road are away from family and can just focus on the game. Nick Goff: Long weeks and short weeks are the first thing for me.Update to the latest version for a better, faster, stronger (and safer) browsing experience.

How long will it take to gets those new rigs up and running and producing. Phil Currie on December 23 2016 said: Craig Ferrell is correct. One more thing to add to his comments. Where will all the people come from to run these rigs to bring back this oil production. Many have left the industry, some will flock back, but not all.
I do not see the rig count in the US going over 1000 for a very long time, if ever again. The pundit class never seems to be interested in talking about how accurate they have been, and that's not aimed at you personally Ms.
Craig Ferrell on December 23 2016 said: Thanks Phil. Couldn't fit in previous comment field the aspect of financing.
Banks review borrowing base twice a year, and cut back last fall based on lower prices. By the time they re-evaluate in spring with higher bases and presumably more ability to spend on capex, the 1st round of OPEC cuts will already be in the books.
It will take a bit longer than assumed, and thus higher oil prices. James kaiser on December 23 2016 said: I agree with Craig and Phil. The big thing Oil Shale requires is CAPEX. You have to spend big money to make big money. They either have to make the money or borrow it.
They can't produce enough to drill, and banks aren't going to lend them money OR they're already extended their credit to the limit. Also, companies are inherently conservative.
The industry might be short sited at times, but it's still runs to make a profit, and until there's enough revenue and cash flow coming back OUT of oil shales, banks and company executives will hesitate to or won't be able to spend like it's 2014. As in the past the abusers will go all the way.
Alex on December 29 2016 said: I would not rely too much on rig count considering new technology of horizontal drilling. Plus, there are a lot of wells that have been drilled, and now require frac jobs with lower than drilling costs.

Iceland will be next on our destination list. The binder with each day's itinerary and pictures of each site was very helpful. I used it to make notes on each destination and to sort out my photos afterwards. All the people I dealt with at Nordic Visitor were friendly and helpful.
One of the best parts of this trip was the group itself. Everybody got along well and became friends, despite our differences, including an age span from 26 to 80. I also loved watching Iceland play Austria on the big screen in Akureyri.
Ever since, I've been cheering for the Icelandic team. The people where so helpful, friendly and knowledgeable of their area of both road conditions, the sights especially the local gems. I so wish Iceland was my home. I've booked a self driving tour of Iceland with the Nordic Visitor for the first time and was the best holiday decision ever. The consultant was professional and accommodated all our requests.
Everything from activities, accommodation and transport was organised perfectly for us to enjoy. The choice of hotels and the recommendations on the route came in handy. We loved every moment of our holiday. From the start we can say nothing other than to praise the efforts of Nordic Visitor. We did the ten day self driven tour and we're delighted with the service and the attention to detail from the get-go.
We were met at Reykjavik Airport having sailed to Iceland from Denmark and then flew to Reykjavil. The hotels, the hire car and all that went with it was excellent. Even when one hotel found themselves embarrassed at their booking error, the next hotel was an upgrade. Other folk travelling with Nordic on our trip had similar good tales to tell. Loved the mobile phone and GPS that we had as well as the fuel discount cards.
I think that the hotel selections were great as all were centrally located and upscale. Overall, the entire itinerary was well arranged. We were very happy with our tour of the Golden Circle. It was a pleasure dealing with Arnor and all the information sent previous to our departure was most helpful. We were thrilled with the Iceland Road Atlas and it is now part of our collection of travel books. The pickup driver at the airport was more than pleasant despite being kept waiting for an hour.
The car rental went smoothly and the car fit our needs very well. Everything worked without a hitch. Our travel advisor was able to accommodate a relatively late change in our tour choice and still provided a terrific selection of lodging destinations. Documents and vouchers were complete, organized, and accepted without question.
The provision of a phone is a terrific standard and was used to quickly resolve the one issue we had with the car rental agency. We would not hesitate to utilize Nordic Visitor for another holiday destination. We enjoyed our holiday more than we can describe, and I know that the photos we posted on Facebook, and the comments we made, have directly led to others arranging holidays there.
Thank you for sharing your amazing country with us. We can't wait to come back. Totally brilliant holiday, superbly organised by Brynjar. If we lived closer to Iceland we'd be back in a heartbeat.In simplest terms, 6 to 1 odds means if you bet a dollar (the "1" in the expression), and you win you get paid six dollars (the "6" in the expression), or 6 x 1.
If you bet two dollars you would be paid twelve dollars, or 6 x 2. If you bet three dollars and win, you would be paid eighteen dollars, or 6 x 3. If you bet one hundred dollars and win you would be paid six hundred dollars, or 6 x 100. Of course if you lose any of those bets you would lose the dollar, or two dollars, or three dollars, or one hundred dollars. One drawback of expressing the uncertainty of this possible event as odds for is that to regain the probability requires a calculation.
The natural way to interpret odds for (without calculating anything) is as the ratio of events to non-events in the long run. A simple example is that the (statistical) odds for rolling six with a fair die (one of a pair of dice) are 1 to 5. This is because, if one rolls the die many times, and keeps a tally of the results, one expects 1 six event for every 5 times the die does not show six.
For example, if we roll the fair die 600 times, we would very much expect something in the neighborhood of 100 sixes, and 500 of the other five possible outcomes. That is a ratio of 100 to 500, or simply 1 to 5. To express the (statistical) odds against, the order of the pair is reversed.
Hence the odds against rolling a six with a fair die are 5 to 1. The gambling and statistical uses of odds are closely interlinked. If a bet is a fair one, then the odds offered to the gamblers will perfectly reflect relative probabilities. The profit and the expense exactly offset one another and so there is no advantage to gambling over the long run. If the odds being offered to the gamblers do not correspond to probability in this way then one of the parties to the bet has an advantage over the other.
Casinos, for example, offer odds that place themselves at an advantage, which is how they guarantee themselves a profit and survive as businesses.
The fairness of a particular gamble is more clear in a game involving relatively pure chance, such as the ping-pong ball method used in state lotteries in the United States. It is much harder to judge the fairness of the odds offered in a wager on a sporting event such as a football match. The language of odds such as "ten to one" for intuitively estimated risks is found in the sixteenth century, well before the development of mathematical probability.
Odds are expressed in the form X to Y, where X and Y are numbers. Usually, the word "to" is replaced by a symbol for ease of use.
