    Why are guys so afraid of betting bases the first few weeks?

    I've heard all the excuses.
    Weather
    New pitchers
    New lineups

    Do you guys wait 2-3 weeks before betting college football and NFL?

    I lol at all those guys who think they have models. Yeah okay

    I'm the opposite, actually think most value is the 1st month through June. Once we get into august I have much smaller cards as books have much better handle on things imo.

    Less information the better. Lines less sharp in early season. Better for me.

    Pretty easy actually. Look for plus money coin flips of which there are many especially early in the year!! Like cardinals were +130 today, dunno if they will win but it tied 3-3 in a game one would have assumed be fairly low scoring and very close! I love flipping coins at plus money! Heads or tails bro!

    Damn shame we kept giving Carlos runs and he kept giving them back. Was hoping to be tied when we got to the pens.

    one of the biggest factors is to find out which players are chewin' and what brand. From there its all about matchups.

    I mean if you got 3 of the big hitters in the heart of the Detroit Tigers lineup all on Red Man Chewing Tobacco, they're practically a lock to tear up the Indians that day....take the Team Total Over in that case, this isn't fukkin difficult.

    You will never catch me telling that lie. Although I don't bet a lot more baseball after the asb just cause it such a grind and I'm burnt out by then.

    Longer season goes the bigger juiced plays. Today Astros -160 away fave. That's ridiculous. -1 -135 -1.5 -105. Looks like book won't let you play Astros alredy. I liked Verlander last season but I'm pretty sure he wasn't -160 away

    I take them some times. Now my question was completely different because all I've heard around here is how baseball is not to bet there first few weeks. Which favorites you like today in NBA?

    I was going to take the twolves last night. Did you see how that ended?

    Fugly NBA card today man, just like the Heat today, and not thrilled either...

    Think many here have been burned the 1st weeks of bases year in and year out, at least in my case it has been this way always... also 1st 2 weeks of NFL, usually suck for me...

    May be an exaggerated perception... but better safe than sorry
