    Thanks. I've only listened to him online analyzing the Boys selections during the draft.

    3-way parlay is 6/1.

    Won a 3way points only (Cincy, GB, TB) this weekend and lost the GB/TB/Dallas.

    Won 3 , 2-way parlays (NO 2nd half pts and over, 1st half Ravens and under)

    Lost 2nd half Broncos and pts (thanks to that BS last TD call from SD) and 2nd half ravens and over.

    Got to see GnR for free and made out quite well. Love Vegas for 24 hours

    If I had to bet (and wont do that on Dallas for the remainder of the year). I would say Wash (moneyline and/or spread) but not the over.

    I would touch the over. In fact the under is the safest bet for me.

    Reasons:

    Wash last 5 games pts -

    TB - 24
    Atl - 17
    Min - 38 (1 def TD)
    NYG - 23
    Pit - 12
    Car - 13
    Philly - 31. ( I throw this one out, blown coverages, Philly quit long ago)

    The cowboys wont score over 20-23 without a def TD. I dont see the Wash offense putting up over 24 on this defense. The LBs are fast and the deep balls wont be as easy as they had against Philly.)

    I think he means the Skins will
    1) Cover the spread
    2) Cover the Over
    3) Win the game outright

    I wouldn't bet a cent on either team. Both are just too leaky to trust at all.

    My guess it will be a lot like the Cleveland game. 2 teams making a lot of mistakes, helping the other team stay close, and somebody wins at the end on the back of whichever team makes the last big mistake.

    I don't know about that under. The Skins D can't stop anyone. Other than that Philly/Foles disaster last week, the least they've given up was 21...in a very recent 8 point LOSS to Carolina.

    they payouts on a parlay vary book to book. also depends on what kind of bets you are taking.

    if you do 3 bets against the spread parlayd, sure it might be 6/1 payout
    if you do 3 moneylines on big underdogs the payout will be much more than 6/1
    if you do 3 moneylines on big favorites the payout will be much less than 6/1

    it depends on the odds on the bets you are parlaying
    when you see those charts for online sportsbooks, that show the payouts for 3,4,5,6,7 etc parlays, they are referring to straight bets (ie O/U or spreads)

    people must have forgotten how good dallas looked 2 weeks ago against philly in philly... especially once foles was in the game.

    that wash team is really bad.

    we are just pretty bad.

    no way i'd take wash based on that won week and ignore the 3-6 record they built prior.

    rg3 will be very good but he needs a team built around him. his ol is arguably worse than romo's. his wr's are definitely worse. his rushign attack even worse except his own attempts.

    and it isn't even close as to which team has a better defense.

    Well, to be technical, the book I used to go through payed 5.6 to 1. It is pretty standard to go 6/1 though. Of course through this hypothetical bet of Wash, Wash ML and over or under would pay more due to a moneyline bet in there.

    I hit a 9-teamer in college ball once, only bet it because I was up big from the last weekend. I bet $20 and it payed $360, not the straight 200 to 1 odds, had some ML's and teasers mixed in there.

    ^^ THIS.

    I can't believe all these other yahoos acting as if this is jargon for some complex parlay. It simply means Norm is 3x as confident in the pick, or in other words -- BET THE HOUSE.

    And by the way, you can't bet on the team and the spread in the same wager. It's redundant and Vegas would lose big if that was allowed.

    Now that the gambling addicts have come out in full force and we got the "triple play" figured out...........My biggest concern would be the O/U.

    Washington can score but I think Dallas matches up with them well.

    Dallas can't really score but the Washington D is pretty weak.

    Expect close game, like always. Likely coming down to the end of the game.

    You can't?

    Not even for the favorite?

    I mean, if New England comes in as a 14 point favorite, them winning and them covering are pretty two distinct bets.

    Like I stated, I did not see the context Norm was talking about this.

    As for the bolded part, you are 100% incorrect. There might be some sporadic books that will not allow it, but most do.

    not entirely true. this is all book dependant. some allow it, some dont. ive made those bets before, specifically where the spread is a very large portion of the O/U. so id either parlay the OVER and the Favorite, OR the UNDER and the DOG.

    It means bet the house on the Cowboys.

    You are either incorrect or I need to switch books because there are apparently people willing to give away money.

    With a 2 team parlay typically giving 2.5-1 odds and if the spread is Dallas -3 vs. Washington:

    It makes no sense for a book to allow both spread and straight action on the same bet because if the Cowboys cover, of course they win straight.

    Conversely, if the Redskins win straight, of course they will also cover with the additional points.

    In both cases house would essentially be allowing someone to make a straight wager at 2.5-1 odds. (Not to mention losing out on collecting the vig with even action). The house would lose millions.

    Again, if you have a book that allows this, it's clearly a fringe internet site desperate for the action. But no way this happens in Vegas or on something like Bovada/Bodog.

    Note - this is not saying you can't bet spread and O/U on the same ticket.

    I think you are confusing what is being said a bit.

    For example, you can bet Wash +3 and Wash to win outright(ML) into a parlay. Lets say Dallas wins by 1 or 2, you win one of the bets but not both.

    Now, if you bet Dallas -3 and a Dallas ML, you can still parlay it but it will not pay 2.6 to 1, it will decrease.
