At some point you have to assume some knowledge on behalf of your readers.  For example, the post you call out also says 7-0 without explanation.  I'd imagine there are people who might read that without knowing what it means, but it is reasonable to assume that most people on a sports blog will know what that means.  Similarly, it seems reasonable that people reading a thread on betting might be familiar with a term used in betting.  Further, you take him to task for not typing out three words, when you could have typed three words into Google "meaning of ATS" and gotten the answer.

This reminds me of going to Vegas with a friend. We went to the bookie and made bets. Then we go to a bar to watch the games. It turned out we had bet on the opposite teams (using the spreads). Then realized we are losers and should have bet each other because regardless the outcome, we are losing money. Vegas! [shakes fist]

Nebraska +18 is a great bet.  Can you really see us winning by more than 2 touchdowns tomorrow?  They are a desperate team that is throwing the kitchen sink at this game.  I think we escape with a 6 point win.

Edit: Never been so happy to have been so wrong!!!!!

Barring some really fluky or crazy stuff happening, Stanford is going to walk all over Oregon. 

Chip’s Ducks are long gone. I’m honestly shocked the spread is only -2/-2.5 because Stanford is probably 10-12 points better on paper.

I never bet on Michigan games (even the spreads, or over/under). I'm not a good "businessman" and I am too emotionally invested in the games to be impartial. That said, the18 point spread against a seemingly improved Nebraska team (despite being 0-2, some shit luck in close games imo) - That is one game I would take Nebraska to cover...if I could bet on Michigan games.

I want a 40 point blowout just can't do it, can't separate the head from the heart :(
