I've Already Lost $25,000

I didn't make it to Vegas before the Philly game and wasn't able to place the Super Bowl winner bet with the sportsbook (I'm nervous about betting on off-shore sites). The initial odds on Atlanta were 40 to 1 ...... after the Philly game, the odds dropped all the way to 30 to 1. I was going to bet 2 thousand to win a miracle $80,000 - I felt like I had lost 20 grand right off the bat. Then, after the NY game, the odds continued to drop to around 25 to 1. I felt it would be fun to make the 40 to 1 bet, but with it dropping so low I'm not so motivated.

Even though I knew it would take a miracle for the Falcons to win a title this year, it seemed like the stars were aligning to give us a better chance ..... including: 1. The schedule - our division is weak, and making the playoffs is half the battle. Our 2 non-common opponents are not elite (S.F. and Minn.). 2. The injuries seem to be falling our way so far - including this week with Romo and Dez. 3. They 'really' made an effort to upgrade the Oline. This unit should get better as the season goes on. 4. We still have some holes, but our overall depth seems better.

Naturally, I would have written-off the 2 grand immediately as entertainment dollars - god knows I've lost more than that several times in a casino in one night. I just thought that it would be fun to have a miracle bet that would stay alive as long as the Falcons aren't eliminated from playoff contention. Lighten up - lot better odds than the lottery ... lol
