    D) Check to see if seaweed, ikid, or Rudy are on the other side. If they are then add 5 units.

    I tend to double up on better line but gotta know the sport you taking bout. Mlb you damn right if line moves 20 cents against me im adding to the play at better price if I really believe in and know the movement flat out wrong.

    Bang. Especially the 1st 2 retards. Rudy a made man imo and would never blindly fade him out of respect. (God it crazy how much my opinion of him has changed to better! Lol)..

    I think to be a successful bettor long-term you have to be able to win betting against the market maker, professional bettors, and the public. You can't just bet against the public in sports where the public actually moves the market like the NFL, and if you are confident in your play and no facts have changed, you have to be confident in your handicap. If its a big line move because of actual news that's a different situation, but if the line move is that big there's likely no chance to buy out without risking being middle anyways.

    This is why you wait to see what the line does before you pull the trigger on a game a week before it starts. Never know what’s going to happen...I’ll pay a little extra to be on the right side and get a read on what the lines doing....Get shit from the “VALUE” guys but that doesn’t mean shit unless it wins. To each there own

    I don't look at lines after I make a bet. This is how I make the books bleed cash.

    You have some good looks there but I am on KC and Cincy so far tonight.

    Good Luck, this is our weekend.

    This is not true or maybe I mis-read it. When you say "you can't just bet" maybe you mean as some blanket system.

    Otherwise, if the "public" actually manages to move the line in a sport like the NFL, then it will become "inefficient."

    That is exactly when sharp bettors exploit the line and bet against the public. They are getting a good number.

    You seem to give the public a lot of credit when it comes to moving an NFL market, it's not warranted.

    The bigger money and the books move the market and they know who they are.

    Under in Colorado looks better to me, but those contrarian unders always stick out.

    We already got one in the early game, I'm passing.

    You bet Patriots 7.5 and the line is now -7.0, and you hedge your bet at +7.0??? Is this a serious question?
