When we mark a game “Casual Betting Only”, we mean you only bet the game for the entertainment value. You know what we mean. There is only one or a few games on and you want to watch them even though they are not too appealing. In order to make the game a little more palatable, you sprinkle a little cash on it. Only an amount equal to the entertainment value you will get back on having a wager on the game, but not so much that you’ll be angry if you lose.
That is the only reason the Cinci @ Memphis game is mentioned in our Thursday Night’s Games. Cinci’s QB situation is a mess and the reason the line jumped so much. This is the type of game you stay away from. Memphis could blow them out, but we’ve our own reasons for thinking Cinci will cover. But, we wouldn’t bet on it.
