SEPTEMBER 9, 2014 -- Letís re-visit last weekís discussion about the margins between the straight-up result and the pointspread in NFL games. Some turkey-lurkey who plays poker doubted that the long-term, median NFL ATS Margin was 10 points. Of course, it was never 10 points. It was 8, or 8.5, and Iím sure he doubted that, too, and was too lazy to check it himself. Itís easier to write things like, ĎI donít want to waste my time talking to somebody who thinks that NFL games are that far off the line,í and go back to chatting up people at the poker table and trying to distract them, or giving the evil-eye to somebody hitting on 16 at the blackjack table.
