As Metrodome roof collapses, lines shift 

December, 13, 2010

That video of the Metrodome collapsing was spectacular, freakier than "Black Swan." And the drama surrounding this game has been just as intriguing. Will Brett Favre play? Would the Giants make it to Minnesota? Would the game be Sunday afternoon, Sunday night, Monday night? Would it even be in Minnesota?

Well, while all these questions were being asked, there was one that gamblers were patiently waiting to have answered: What would the new line be? Actually, there were two: What would the new line be? And, will my original bet on the Giants or Vikings count?

Back before things got freaky on Sunday afternoon, the Giants opened as 2.5-point favorites.

By Sunday morning the line had crept to minus-3.
