There are sports fans. There are sports fans who gamble. And then there are the compulsively stupid.
Already issued from Las Vegas bookies are point spreads for the opening round of National Football League pre-season games. That heralds the football betting season.What needs to be kept very much in mind is that “pre-season” is really an NFL euphemism. The operative word here is EXHIBITION. These are scrimmage upgrades that feature cameos by established players and try-outs for bunches of players who will be found wanting by NFL standards. All bets should be off.
But some gamblers can’t wait. Bet on it.
