Thursday Night Football:Pittsburgh vs Cincinnati
For many years I had what some might call an addiction to gambling on football games. I had a bookie. I placed bets, collected money and paid out money.
When I was involved in this I studied trends like crazy. I would buy books, read stats online, etc. One thing I learned in gambling is that if a home teams plays 3 straight games at home, they will lose game #3. Sounds weird huh? But it happens all the time.
When I was looking at the Steeler's schedule today, I saw that Thursday night will be home game #3 for the Steelers. So ever since then I have been having just a slight panic attack about this game. Maybe they will only not cover the spread...maybe they will give like 10 pts to Cincy and only win by 7. I could live with that. This game is making me so nervous now. I guess we will have to wait and see what happens.
