    Who will be in Vegas and where will you be watching the games?
    What bets are you considering?

    IMO pretty much the best weekend in NFL playoffs......plus Monday night is the NCAA championship game if you can spend an extra day.

    No.....not going to be there......sad face........

    Have fun & win big :):):)

    Thanks. I wish I could stay for the NCAA Championship game. Unfortunately, another obligation prevents me from doing so. At least I'll be able to have some action on the game.

    Oakland over Houston. I don't see Denver losing to Oak this week earning Oak #5 seed.

    If KC plays Houston, in a rematch of last year, I'm taking KC this time. KC blow out last year.

    Pittsburgh over Dolphins

    Seattle over anyone but the Packers.

    I'll be there for all!

    Any idea of the game time for Saturday? I have to move from DT, to Cosmo and get to MGM for 930 KA show. Just trying to time my exit properly.

    Awesome!
    Last year the first Saturday game kicked off at 1:35pm Vegas time. The second Saturday game kicked off at 5:15pm.
    Check into Cosmo at halftime and Uber to MGM for KA right after the second game. Looks like good timing to me!

    Agreed. Unfortunately, I bet heavy on Houston last year. Stoopid me had to rip up several parlay tickets after that 30-0 loss.

    I'll be at Cosmo as well. Had to take a ridiculously early flight from Podunk, VA (no direct flights to LAS:mad:) to make sure I got in town in time for the games.

    Gonna be a PITA to arrange dinner plans around the WC games, the Nat'l Championship and my Hoosiers' b-ball games. But I suppose I'll manage...if I must! :rolleyes2:

    Saturday
    Oakland(+3) @ Houston. Raiders\Texans in a punt fest. UNDER37

    Detroit(+8) @ Seattle. Seahawks probably win but not by 8. O/U42 seems low. Supposed to rain in the afternoon, high of 38.


    Sunday
    Pittsburgh(-10) hosting Dolphins. Don't see the Fins keeping up with Pit offense. OVER47 as Steelers D bends to around 20 points per game. Weather is predicted to be a high of 25 degrees.

    Packers host New York Football Giants(+5). Taking the OVER44 as Eli makes his groundhog-like bid every 4-5 years. Mostly sunny with a high of 19.

    See you in the Red Zone

    Surely, the Big Guy makes exceptions for playoff Sundays, right?

    But, yeah...you can't let mom go alone!

    Red Zone. Of course. A couple of good banks (closest to the ping pang pong) with 9/6 JOB and 8/5 bonus. You can still see the tv's. And a GREAT waitress.. Short perky full of personality blonde from 9-4 or so. Have fun
