I am a rational dude. I am not optimistic or pessimistic. I considerable myself a devout pragmatist. I evaluate things by cutting through the BS and weighing the factors that can be objectively measured and quantified before I make a decision. So, while I am fascinated by sports gambling and the business of sports gambling, I almost never bet. That said, someone please explain to me why I shouldn't SELL EVERYTHING I OWN AND BET ON MARYLAND BEING A 1.5 POINT UNDERDOG TO BOSTON COLLEGE!!!!!!! WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON!?!?! SOMEONE PLEASE TAKE MY MONEY BEFORE THIS LINE MOVES TOWARD SANITY!!!!!!
Sorry, I got a little....forget about it. Here are some Football Outsiders rankings:
Game Efficiency: MD=63, BC=109
Offensive FEI: MD=64, BC=63
Defensive FEI: MD=36, BC=97
FEI Rank: MD=57, BC=92
Seriously. What the hell is going on? Now, I am
obviously definitely probably not going to bet everything I own on a football game. But why shouldn't I throw some money at this?
Maybe people think Maryland's offense will be worse without Perry Hills if he can't go? In my humble opinion, those people are wrong people. Terp fans should hope that cart carried Perry back to wherever the hell he came from. MD got 3.95 Yards-Per-Play with Hills, and 6.53 YPP with Burns and Rowe. Burns was dynamic and downright scary. Rowe, who traded his redshirt for a...different red shirt, may actually be pretty good. However, it's impossible to tell from one possession against a defense who played like they were up by three scores.
Anyway, I would love to
hear read someone explain why I shouldn't do this. Better hurry. I am looking up ticket prices to Vegas right now.
