    Who needs capping? Just bet against the public based on Purdum's twit.

    David Payne Purdum's tweets may be the way to go when you see lopsided money on one side at all books in Vegas.

    I'm sure it will be more than 53% winners.

    I know I would have saved a decent amount if I paid closer attention to his tweets.

    Latest tweet from Purdum.

    Basically, it looks like the books in Vegas made a killing in the CFP final except for MGM.

    Line to cash tickets isn’t long at the @BeauBiloxi sportsbook, but I heard MGM books got dinged pretty good by Clemson tonight.

    Big bet: @WilliamHillUS just took a $200,000 money-line on Clemson at +190.

    Would pay a net $380,000.

    I saw that and I wish I had bigger balls and bet the Clemson ML instead of the spread.

    I would have made $2,180 more.

    Yes, I know that greed kills. Whenever I get greedy and add just one or two more teams to my ML parlays and teasers, I end up losing.

    I've somewhat learned to reduce the number of teams and take less payout before placing my final bets. I just need to be more disciplined and do it more often.

    Are you saying betting against the public does not work?

    I am not expecting it to work all the time. Just enough to make a profit if you are consistent with it.

    Everyone on SBR is nervous about their picks if they think everyone else on SBR is taking the same side.

    So, if it's like that and the public money is on the same side, then isn't it a good fade material?

    All I know is that what David reported on ESPN about what Vegas needing came in more often than not and I for one is willing to take a chance and go with whatever Vegas needs as the books lose far less than the bettors.
