    lets see if I can get back on track today. I have a lot for a limited card:

    1 unit Pittsburgh(Fogg) over St. Louis(Mulder) @ (+157) @ Pinnacle
    3.5 units New York Mets(Glavine) over Arizona(Webb) @ (+120) @ Pinnacle
    1.5 units Houston(Oswalt) over San Diego(Woody Williams) @ (-136) @ Five Dimes
    2 units Toronto(Downs) over New York Yankees(Jaret Wright) @ (+190) @ Pinnacle
    1 unit Cleveland(Millwood) over Tampa Bay(Waechter) @ (-152) @ Five Dimes, VIP or Bowmans........

    Good luck to everyone. I would be interested if Illusion or JJ or anyone else could maybe give a little ground intelligence on the status of Oswalt's arm. He's seemed very flat the last 2-3 outings. Any info on that? Thanks.

    This is my first post in this forum, but I have consulted SBR for over a year. My friend and I have a method where we each make a list of plays each day, put our heads together, and assign plays on a 1-10* basis. We have been relatively successful in baseball, and very successful in college football. We have struggled in the NFL over the past year+, but are confident this year can be better.


    Tonight's plays:
    8* NYY Over 9.5 -135
    5* Phillies -107
    4* Braves +110
    4* Houston -141
    3* NYM +119
    1* Braves Under 6.5 +115
    1* Seattle Over 39.5 -110
    Opinion - Seattle (1st Half) -.5 -115

    These lines are all from canbet.

    Welcome to the forum, Razz. You're from Alabama and you do well on college football. Reminds me of a guy I listen to every fall over the internet......Greg Roberts. I love that guy.

    Thanks for the welcomes guys. EBone, Greg Roberts is the father of the friend I handicap games with. He got us started. Unfortunately, things aren't going that great tonight, but maybe the Astros and Mets can hang on here so it isn't that bad.

    Man, that is wild....... I formerly lived in Memphis, TN and I listened to Greg and Lapides every Friday. That was some entertaining stuff. The former programming director, Dave Greene, at WHBQ in Memphis now runs 1380-ESPN here in St. Louis. I actually wrote an email to Dave Greene asking him if they'd get Greg Roberts up here for Friday. Dave said, "he didn't think college football gambling was as big a deal in St. Louis as it is in Memphis". I was a bit disappointed. However, now I listen to Greg with Soren Petro in Kansas City on Friday afternoons. Soren really knows his stuff. His show is really geared towards sports gambling and the like.

    Anyway, welcome aboard. I'll be interested to see your posts, Razz.
