    wtf... the Bucs challenged that TD play in the 2nd quarter...

    Great... I just lost my coaches challenge when it seemed clear it wasn't a TD.

    Edit: KC still leads the kickoff return with 41 yards.

    Bucs lead 14-3. The spread is only Bucs -4.5 with the Chiefs about to get the ball in Q2.

    Total opened at 55 and is currently 52.5

    Anyone betting the Chiefs live at +150?

    I'm not an nfl guy, but it seems like Chiefs will get hot at some point

    edit - now +280

    I want to say that is free money, but then again, I have seen strange things before. Looks very good, though.

    They get the second-half kick-off.

    If the NFL is rigged like we all think it is, the Chiefs should have no problem covering O3.5 points in the 3rd quarter.

    It probably wouldn't matter in this game, but the refs really do give Brady's teams every call. It's amazing, they do it in an obvious way and barely try to hide it.

    They did it 2 weeks ago and gifted Tampa the win vs the Packers, and they have thrown nonstop flags on KC tonight and basically none on TB.

    It's not that most of those aren't penalties, it's that TB does the exact same thing and the refs sit there like drooling idiots and never call it.

    Last week vs the Packers, the refs let the TB secondary mug the Packer receivers all game (including a blatantly obvious jersey grab PI on that key interception late in the 2nd quarter) but then throw the flag on GB on the huge play at the end of the game. It's just amazing, not sure if Brady is some mind control wizard or what LMAO.

    Welp, that Super Bowl was actually the worst I've seen in many years. Lost some small bets, but it actually felt like a waste of time to watch.

    Maybe I would think different if I was on Tampa Bay ML/point spread instead of betting player props, but even with UFC I can tell if a fight is boring when I bet it.

    Big time momentum shifts. Most of the money was on the chiefs coincidentally

    Had Bucs ML, Bucs +3, Bucs -3(+200), Brady MVP +200

    May as well post an update after the first 2 rounds are mostly complete!

    My two plays, Sabalenka and Swiatek, have both been victorious thus far. Amusingly, both could be had at even better than +1000 odds closer to the Australian, as both looked disappointing and lost early in their pre-Australian Open appearances in Melbourne. Personally, I wasn't concerned; they got more rest than players who did better and had to play more matches!

    Sabalenka has looked good, and just defeated a solid, decent opponent in Kasatkina in round 2. Swiatek destroyed a fairly tough Round 1 foe in Rus and then absolutely humiliated a stern test in Giorgi. Swiatek is playing with a brand-new racket AND traveling without her sports psychologist, who she says is the third-closest person in her life after her father and sister, but she is talented enough to figure it out. Hey, at least Swiatek is self-aware to know she needs a shrink, which is also why she is one of the more mentally stable players out there, despite being only 19.

    Lest you think all the popular futures picks have gotten through, former Grand Slam champions Andeescu at +1200 and Azarenka at +1400 are already out.

    Azarenka did well in the pre-Australian tournament but had to pull out due to injury. That may have played a factor when she lost to a pretty good opponent in Jessica Pegula, a match that had no business being in Round 1, but hey, that's rigged tournament draws for you.

    Andreescu's exit in Round 2 is far more shameful. After looking like shit in Round 1 and barely getting through, she was walloped by Su-Wei Hsieh, a player who looks like a malnourished coolie and is one of the absolute weakest players on tour. I haven't played tennis seriously in almost 20 years, but even as a rail-thin 14 year old I could hit harder serves than Hsieh does.

    However, I was rooting for Hsieh. Why? Because Andreescu looked woefully fat and out-of-shape for a supposed professional athlete, moved like a pregnant elephant, and generally looked like she did little training in her 15 months off. She deserved to lose.

    Another top 10, Petra Kvitava, although I didn't mention her, was +1200 and somehow lost to fucking Sorana Cirstea in Round 2 while looking like she was dying from heat exhaustion in Round 2, giving me awful flashbacks of fellow Czech and top 10 Karolina Pliskova. What the hell is it with 6 foot tall Czech women and lousy conditioning?

    Johanna Konta, who is 12th in the world (higher than Swiatek, actually!) and like +2000 pre-tournament, also bowed out due to injury midway through Round 1, but seriously, who the hell expected anything from her?

    In terms of favorites, Osaka looked mediocre in the pre-Australian Open tournament before withdrawing, but was fantastic in demolishing a good opponent in Pavlyuchenkova in Round 1. (Another match that had no business being so early) Her mental concentration comes and goes, but she might be motivated now.

    Local Aussie favorite Ash Barty was probably the most impressive before the Open, winning her tournament and looking very strong, and then scored a perfect double bagel, 6-0 6-0 against someone named Kovinic in Round 1. Not only is she playing at her very best, but being the hometown hero, she has a favorable draw, facing a relative cream puff in Round 2, Daria Gavrilova.

    The super long-shot I recommended, Elise Mertens, has also done well, winning her own pre-Australian Open tournament (Osaka withdrew right before playing her, where she was only a small favorite), shortening her future odds from +4000 to +2500 if I recall correctly, then destroying a talented, dangerous young player in Leylah Fernandez in Round 1.

    Again, she isn't amazing or overwhelming, but there is something to be said for consistency in a sport where damn near everyone lacks it.
