AUTO CLUB 400 ODDS

Respect.It’s one of the more overused words in the language, abused by countless dopes who think they’ve earned more than they really have.Certain people talk about respect. Others sing about it. Odds makers document respect, along with a lack of it. Down a mere ten fake dollars after Kyle Busch’s win, their numbers for this week sure made me blink. Carl Edwards is for real:Last year, Vegas was slow to the plate on Denny Hamlin. It was only the back half of the season when H ...

HOLIDAY PROP BETS

Our football team stunk to high heaven most of the time we were in Athens.  Ohio played in the New Orleans Bowl against Troy. It’s the second straight bowl game for the Bobcats. I should care.
