    Why? Seriously don't understand why people would ask a poster to NOT post plays on a gambling forum?!?!

    Think I'll tail that Oakland play. Absolutely nothing suggest they have any business winning this game, and that seems to be a lock winner in MLB nowadays.

    So let me get this straight...playing the A's is your play today. when they are facing Paxton who hasn't given up a run all year. That's fine, but how in the hell does that not make the Under 8 in that game a play?

    You really expect the A's to score 5 runs against the dude who hasn't given up a run the whole season? Come on. Use some common sense

    LT may be a losing gambler but this is one of the dumbest posts of the week. What's past isn't always prologue and...nice sample size "run all year".

    Hey...J. Teheran came into yesterday having given up only 2 runs in 19 innings and an ERA under 2. How'd he fare?

    First time I replied to an LT thread but I been checking them for years, here are a few thoughts.

    He isn't playing with your money.
    He didn't force anyone to tail any picks.
    He wasn't shit talking.

    So what's the problem? The guy post everyday and answers people's questions as best he can. I've never seen him start shit with anyone. So what he made a bad pick, there are ways to let him know you disagree without being a prick about it. He went against the consensus, sometimes it works and sometimes it don't. LT had one of the best seasons I ever witnessed a couple seasons ago of +100 units and is a nice guy, give the man the respect he deserves.

    So that means Paxton won't allow a run all season?

    Look I LIKE Paxton, he was actually undervalued much of the time the last couple of seasons. But the pendulum has now swung as he seems overpriced here. Model has Seattle winning this game 56% of the time which is -127, so I simply felt +152 was great +EV.

    As for total, I get 7.6 so no opinion.

    No opinion on a total? You should use that approach more often

    This is an absolutely on point post FUqer. If any of these guys were so amazing they'd be retired off there gambling profits and drinking out of coconut shells on a beach somewhere. Not worried about how good or bad somebody posting picks, for free, is doing on SBR. Keep doing what you do LT. Hope you get it turned around bro. Don't worry about the chum buckets, which it doesn't look like you do. BOL

    It so happens I have no opinion on any totals today!

    Those will turn around though, they almost always do.

    Fading works really well. You'd be up a fortune if you did so across all sports dating back to last year.

    Smartest thing to do is fade the model.

    If you read LTs post you'd understand why he bets what he does. It's Value. He doesn't necessarily think As will win, but he thinks he gets good value betting them. I have my own opinions about this way of betting, but I'll keep them to myself.

    No, he expected them to score 9.
