    Cowboys are a 3 point favorite this Thursday. The line started at -6 for the Cowboys. O/U started at 46.

    He implied that the Redskins will win, win by >3 points and maybe the combined point total will be > 47.5 points?

    Not sure on the 3rd one.

    dont think that what this means..but i could be wrong..

    not only do the redskins not have to win..they just have to lose by less than 3

    with that said, a triple play for norm probably just means that he likes it a lot..a single is probably something he semi likes..like a lean..a double play probably means he likes it enough to bet it..and a triple play is probably his biggest play so to speak, like a game of the year type of situation

    When you listen to his picks he'll say "TEAM minus the points" or "TEAM plus the points". In my feeble gambling knowledge, the first is a single play, second is a double play.

    I could be, and probably am, wrong.

    And we are supposed to care what Norm says because why? I like his show, could care less about his picks of the poll.

    Pole*. He's Polish.

    He puts a lot of time into gambling odds and has weekly picks. He has a somewhat good track record this year. It's still interesting considering he does his research more than probably any of us on here.

    Bottom.

    He does none of that research. His interns and the other guys on the show do it all for him. My dad used to bet college and pro games using his picks because he was fascinated with how much he thought he knew. Never more than broke even over his years.

    I dunno.

    Win by more than 3 in the over is 3 single best in one. Of course, winning satisfies the straight up and the spread bets provided you pick the underdog.

    Simply covering the spread and covering over is only 2 bets.

    I think robert might be right.

    Breaking even is pretty good against Vegas spreads.

    I've never seen a post on here referencing anything positive Norm has to say about the Cowboys. Is he like the local Ed Werder???

    This. I did not see or hear what was exactly wrote, but in gambling when someone says triple play, it usually means....

    1. bet on the underdog with the points
    2. bet on the moneyline (a bet on the underdog to win outright)
    3. bet on the over or under

    Also, usually a gambler will take all three of those bets and make one combined bet called a parlay which means if all three do win, it pays 5 to 1 odds.

    For example, lets say I bet $100 on each of the first three bets and all win, I come out with around $360 (juice has been taken out and the moneyline odds figured in). Add in the parlay (another $100 bet), I win almost $900 risking $300 in total.

    Lets say only two of those bets hit, the o/u and Wash +3.5 but not the moneyline bet (dallas wins by 3 or less). I would win $180 (from the two wins) and lose $100 (from the ML bet) for a total loss of $120. Add in the parlay loss of $100 to make it a total bet loss of $220. That is a bit better than losing $300 but not much.

    Basically, Norm thinks this game will be a Washington win outright with the total score being the over (I think that is what he likes?) and feels strongly about it.

    The question is..how many units does he think should be put on these bets ranging from 1 to 5. If 5, that means it is almost a lock or guaranteed to win but I rarely see those in the NFL, that is mostly for college ball.

    I forgot to add in the original $200 risked from the two wins, so it would be a total net loss of $20.

    GUYS .. when Norm says "Triple Play" in his picks of the Pole - hes betting 3x the normal bet on the play. Meaning, he feels its a complete lock. None of his 100s of picks this entire year have been more than a double play bet. This would be his first TRIPLE. Thats why I posted this. He's as good a handicapper as they come and if he is proposing a triple times bet on Washington and the spread +3, That says ALOT.
