    So a friend went to Vegas for the SB and I gave him money to put on the Ravens. He placed the bet incorrectly...and accidentaly put me on the money line instead of with the points.

    I didn't see the ticket, but judging by my payout I think I got +155

    I bet the moneyline on them as well (on purpose), it was +165 on the Tues before the game. Normally I'd take the points but since they were only getting 3.5 pts at that time the moneyline looked like a better option. Oh well, be happy and buy him a round of drinks for making that mistake!

    Well it actually worked out better since I didn't know at the time that I didn't have the points. With the Ravens up 5, I was feeling very good about having 3 1/2 points.
