Maybe. At least that would make some sense. I did just look up the Jaguars schedule and they have a home game on Fox against Tampa late in the season.

What happens with bets on the Raiders/Packers game in Vegas?

Listening to KNBR, Bay Area 50,000 watt blowtorch sports talk station, 60 minute infomercial on betting preseason football games. Stone cold locks...call this number...can't miss...etc. Man, you got to be jones-in' if you are willing to bet preseason football.

This thread is more entertaining than all the RAM preseason games combined.

There are some coaches who care about preseason more than others. Jim Harbaugh never loses, Dan Quinn never wins...

ha ha, i can sing a few bars of that! i no longer spend much time in a car commuting or running errands, haven't for many years, but whenever i do i'm always blown away by the sports betting buy now marathons on knbr, seems that it started a few years ago (in fact i actually posted about it back then) and has only gotten more in your face... then again, i'm not sure what's worse, listening to the barrage of betting stuff or listening to the razor and mr. t back in the day, thought both were idiots, ralph was insufferable but tolbert had him beat.

I used to think it was bad karma to either win all your preseason games, or lose them all.

Now, I couldn't care less. The preseason is obsolete.

Good point. Going against McVay in week 3 seems like a good bet. Opposing 1s going against our guys for 2 or 3 quarters...

All in all, it is pretty poor in this area. The morning crew at KNBR seems especially brutal. They all have ADD so there is no continuity from one sentence to the next.
