It is interesting watching how much of American society is being affected by the NFL replacement refs: the latest influence seems to be hitting people’s pocketbooks. While this is directly related to gambling, the abilities for Las Vegas casinos to correctly place the spread is getting extremely difficult and that could mean big profits for both the house and lucky gamblers.
Las Vegas casinos think this weekend's NFL games will be the highest-scoring ever thanks to the league's replacement officials.
Oddsmakers say casinos are changing their expectations as interim referees add new variables to the game, changing its pace and the approaches taken by players and coaches.
Casinos haven't fully changed lines yet because there have been only two weeks of games and referees might adjust how they call games based on weekly feedback from the league.
