Romber is the sucker bet.  Will lead the toteboard until they are eliminated in 8th place.  Then overwelming favorite will be Dee and Eric.  Rob was prolific when he says in the opening intros that they did not come back to finish in second place since we think they will end up 8th not 1st!

Same thing was going through my  mind when I first heard that slithering sound abount not getting second place.

Okay, greasy snake, you won't get second place...How does 8th place sound !

And still dropping for Eric & Danielle:  1:3  I don't think I have ever seen such favored odds.

Why don't they just right them the check?

So I am not that good with the odds but checked it out and it looks like if you bet $1 you get .33 cents back on Eric & Dee  :snicker:

1/5  means I get back $1.00 for every $5.00 that I bet  :wohoo:  :jumpy: 10 Big Bucks for my 50 if they win. At what point do I have to send them more money for having bet $50.00 on Eric and Dee? Will they also keep my $5.00 bonus?

Look like all bets are off thanks to the boot list.

Would this be considered a betting spoiler?

But aren't betting spoilers usually when an unexpected amount of people from a certain area place bets on a team? Like with U/J and F/K?

This is different because it's all coming from the list, and I know the list is probably real, and most people are probably betting on E/D because they saw them as the winners on this list that everybody is already 100% believing.

wow that made no sense LOL

What I mean is - from BEFORE the season even started we had that boot list, so people betting on E/D to win isn't unpredictable, but if you were to watch TAR7 you would never guess to bet on Uchenna and Joyce as the winners

Dangit anyway. I was already making plans on how I would spend that $10.00. A six pack of Guiness and a bag of chips. Oh well  :beer2:

Well - that's the way I look at things Puddin :P

I always have to be the odd member out and hope that the spoilers aren't true because the teams I love always come in 2nd (like rob and amber in TAR7) and supposedly the BQs this season :( It's not fair!

They were taken off?

Since I bet my money over 3 weeks ago on Eric/Danielle, if the odds don't come up back up, does that mean I don't win my money?

I'll be might pissed if that's the case, I bet $50 on them when they were at 4/1, so I'm expecting my $200  :jam:
