    I bet way more money lines now when it’s chalk

    It’s too difficult to cover the spread

    Heavy home favorites ML parlay in college way to go.

    I hit pretty solid last year with one very big exception. Georgia losing to Vandy at home was my 3rd of a 3 teamed worth 5k. That hurt...that was a Vegas ticket, much larger than my traditional inline bets.

    that is the point of post #7

    thread aint about odds, which is better (ML or ATS) or neither

    it is about the gambler's perception of his stress level

    If you guys get stressed out on any type of wager, you are too broke to be wagering. Then again, look who I am talking to.

    With my forecasts, the moneyline bets are far less stressful. Keep the unit the same with each price and let the book have varying risk.

    It might feel worse when you win, but if you a lose a few, you'll be glad you kept the risk flat.

    All you have to do is pick the winner, like baseball...

    no team play to cover the spread....the play to win the game.
    the spread is an invention of the gambling industry making the outcome completely random.

    I agree that no bet should cause street its supposed to be fun an enjoyable. As for which on is better I think then ml is definitely a easier bet especially with the NFL. Sometimes its hare to guess the point spread in the NFL, the later the season gets the easier it does get to figure if the game will cover or not but to me the first half of the season is hard to bet the points.

    Ml. Because the taem is trying to win. Not cover the spread. Less stressful because you and the coach ate on the same page

    Baseball is more stressful sport to bet than any other. All it takes is one run and you won or lost your bet. I think its similar to spliting hairs unless you are playing heavy chalk. Just because a pitcher has a 1.00 whip means really nothing in baseball hitters can still win the game or go over the posted totals easy. There is really no accurate way to predict exactly how many runs a team will get with in game. In baseball for every stat for a win i can show you a stat against a win.

    Exactly I really like betting teams on money lines when its a must win to get in the playoffs. My confidence level goes up during that time.

    I think the answer is that Moneyline bets are MORE stressful. It has to do w/ the bigger swings.

    ATS straight-bets are normally 1.1 to win 1.0.

    Moneyline swings are much bigger. Take Bengals M/L, for example. 1.0 to win 3.5. Chance to more than quadruple your $$. Gone in a blink, at end of game.

    Some truth to this. There's a difference btw spread-betting + Moneyline-betting.

    In Europe, they're used to betting 3-WAY moneylines on soccer. It's a different animal.

    when you bet favorite spread your really trying to do 2 things ( like a 2 game parlay) got to win and cover the spread.....

    best luck in wagering is just do one thing..... Just win the game....

    try to cap a game with low ML numbers ....under -160 or whatever your risk level is...

    The first 3 weeks of the NFL season is unpredictable but once week 4 starts bet on the ML when the spread is -7 and greater. You have a higher chance of winning the ML straight up.
