    It does "seem" like a great site.

    There are some good things about them, and alot of things that they could improve.

    Solid "D" book.

    SportsInteraction has been improving lately, however there history still plagues them sir. They actually still have some outstanding complaints levied against them, however if you are a recreational player playing within the "fine line" type rules I don't feel you will have much of a problem sir.

    I'm not Durito at all, however I can answer the question on his behalf though. Lets say your limits haven't been cut yet... (fill in the blank).

    I always hear guys talking about it, but never showing how they did it or will do it, I'm a skeptic and would like to believe its as simple as some make it out to be, but I have my doubts.

    To put it simply, they have a lot of lines that are off market value because they either are slow to move it or because their customer base is comprised of some of the most square bettors you will ever see. Take the Tennessee-UCLA game from week 1 of college football. Pinnacle and the rest of the market had this game at 7 (-105 both sides or thereabout) while SIA had UCLA +8 +110. You could arb/middle it or just bet the UCLA +8 +110 which, assuming efficient market, has a 12% edge, which is absurd. Or to put it another way, Pinnacle is making bets at +7 +105 and you're getting +8 +110. Now not every game there is like this, but quite a few big games are significantly off of market value at SIA.

    Thanks for the help.

    I'm guessing you have to find the right time to make your play at SIA because they are later than other books when it comes to opening lines?

    In the past I only bet nhl at SIA.

    It's better to bet in the last hour before game time if you are just trying to pick off public games like my example. For the slow moving stuff, that could be at any time.

    No such thing as printing money, no one wins long term

    SIA is a decent books with a very nice software set uo, if you like dogs you might get an extra free half point.

    SIA is a dog bettors paradise. You can get an extra 1/2 to 1 1/2 on a lot of games. I very rarely recall betting a favourite there. Mind you after I took them for 7K over a week they said good bye to me. If I hadn't been so quick to get some money out due to there past history I probably wouldn't have been cut as quick. I was up over 10K in total but after that 7K week I wanted 5K out. I got it out and a message saying I had won too much for a recreational account and got cut.

    Good post DonJuan. I actually took +8.5 (+105) in that game if I remember correctly.

    For exampmle, Friday night before I went to bed, I took Maryland +15 (-110) when the betting markets were +14 everywhere...i woke up expecting to see it down to +14.5 or something and I saw it +15 (+100). SIA makes a fortune b/c they have such a large volume of bettors and most are total squares who bet into any number. You saw how many people here were ready to bet CAL -40 yesterday.

    I remember talking with a guy when i went out to Vegas last year....seemed like a good guy, an older gentleman who had been betting for years he told me. Then midway through our conversation he told me that a half point here and there does not make much of a difference. "It's all the same" he said. Now, imagine if a guy who has been betting for years believes that to be true....and now imagine the young 20 year olds who are betting at SIA (and posting here). Most guys are willing to lay bad numbers and high juice. SIA exploits those two things.

    The dreaded "you won too much..." message, just got it myself this week. Probably is triggered by the 2 withdrawals this week.

    no offense, but maybe it's just you? Not saying that this isn't the case for most people, but to say NOBODY wins long term is wrong.
