Just for the record and I'm not sure it really matters but it looks like William Hill handles the book making for all of the casinos downtown in Reno Circus Circus the Eldorado Silver Legacy cal-neva they handle all of those I'm not sure about Harrah's Peppermill in the ones around town other than these. The upside is I place bets at Cal Neva and I was able to cash my tickets where I was staying at Silver Legacy that makes it convenient

You are right of course. William Hill is I believe a Brit Company and the previous owner of the Cal Neva had one of the most successful books in Nevada and merged with Hill a few years ago, so Hill now is the major player in sports betting in Nevada.

Quite happy when William Hill took over most of the sports betting.

As of now, the Raiders are +8.

Here is the web site and if you look at William Hill, which is the Cal Neva bookie you can see the latest odds.

Thanks but, but I'm sadly lost trying to interpret the odds on the above link. Been horse racing in the US and that was simple decimal odds

If I click on the link look  you gave for the KC v Oakland I get this  below (last box on the right William Hill odds)

So -7.5 I can understand as the spread, but " 53.5u -10" ??? What does $10 return on KC and Oakland, at the above prices. Genuine question, the above confuses the hell out of me.

Thought it would be simple looking at the money line but that left me equally confused. Are they not allowed to advertise a simple, straight up decimal price??

If you bet a hundred and ten you get a hundred if you win or obviously if you bet 11 you get10

Larry,

it means that for every 1$ bet, you get 10$ back that's odds of 9 to 1

The 53.5 is the Over Under not the win odds

When they have -10, that means you have to lay $110 to get back $100, which is the normal house vig. Sometimes they will show Ev on one team and -120 on the other, which means you bet $100 to win $100 or bet $120 to win $100.

Thanks for the explanation and apologies for the TF 😁.

Both teams are priced at  odds on, 10/11 then- house edge come out at 4.8%.

Good that you had some winnings to pick up on the Wk 1 games  👍. Thanks again for the report and pictures.

Actually the house edge is half of that, 2.4% as they don't take any vig on the losing bets.
