    I didn't even know you could buy that many points. You should buy the hook at most! This is crazy talk

    im only referring to college basketball. i beleive the books should be charging around -230 to buy 4 pts. so if i can get 4 pts at -188 i should have an edge.

    he is talking about college basketball not football. HUGE DIFFERENCE. Buying points in basketball is a waste and what losing cappers do.

    Great responses in this thread.

    If only there was some possible way to look at historical data and determine the value of 4 points over a significant sample.

    You have to be careful not to confuse what a normal book would charge you with what price is necessary to make a profit.
