    ive actually been selling points all year in nba. only 1 game out of about my 50 bets has landed on that 1 bad number, all the rest im averaging -100 lines instead of -110 so its already paying for itself

    Ton of Overs with big favorites last night. I like to find those in college football where the favorite has a chance to almost cover the Over by themselves. Hoops wise....if you have a 150 total and the favorite could get 100 then that doesn't require much from the loser. Plus how tight is the defense going to be with a 35 point lead?

    Indiana (only one I bet on) 104-55 (11.5 points Over)
    Villanova 100-77 (27 points Over)
    Rhode Island 97-63 (10.5 Over)
    Wisconsin 85-63 (13.5 Over)
    Minnesota 104-76 (18.5 Over)
    LSU 94-63 (9 Over)
    Gonzaga 120-79 (44.5 Over)

    My thinking is that everyone wants to recruit and you're pretty limited if you play slow ass grind it out Virginia style. Even Wisconsin put up 85 last night. I'm sure they'll adjust the totals quickly like they have in the NBA, but its something to keep an eye on!

    Both up tempo teams but damn 175 seems way too high. Just too early in season for me to figure out totals

    Good move pal. Iím not much into capping nba but this season I started selling half run/ful run on mlb totals (my guy BiffT idea not mine) and it got my typical price range between pk and +130. Turned handful of winners into pushes but the difference from paying -105 to -120 in previous years to paying no juice and getting mostly plus money made it well worth it!! Iím sure the same principal would apply in hoops! Certainly something worth tracking!!! Reason I love baseball is cause I bet almost exclusively dogs on sides, Iíve learned a long time ago I can hit 48-52% consistently (some years little higher) which is profit when getting plus money, and there little to no chance I can consistently hit the percentage required to profit when paying even -120!!!! These the kind of ideals and discussions we need more of around here!! Welcome aboard pal!!

    ya i saw bifft doing that in bases too and it seemed to be going well for him when i would look at his thread every couple of days. i also started doing this on football when its not key numbers and has worked actually the best

    Yeah, rough start. Seems like I always start off this way. But, I always dig out and profit every season and I have every intention of continuing that trend of winning seasons.

    It took a rare Kyle Ahrens late 3, followed by two 1/2 trips to the FT line for KU, for me to lose by the 0.5 hook for a 4.2x swing.

    I lean that way Dom but I came to the conclusion the over was a stronger play, I feel if Buffalo stays within the number it should sail into the 160s. Plus I could see wvu covering and still going over which why I choose over.. do think that the right side tho, gl!!

    Illinois vs GTown will be heavily dependent on if the Illinois guards can outweigh govan inside. I think they can. I'm an illini fan. But a realistic one. You got a good number at -6.
    I wouldn't take it at the 8 it is now.
    But Ayo and Trent are incredible guards and should put on a show per usual.
