    I Love When Guys Bet Way More On Big Games

    We all do

    Why ?? Big Shot Image

    Big games have no better chance of hitting than a HS game with a spread

    Yeah, the excitement of the game + the excitement of the bet.

    Not a good winning strategy, betting wise. I can't even tell you how much I've won/lost on big games. Mostly lost.

    For me , it's the end of a season --which leads to a final championship game. No big shot idea

    It's because there are more things to bet on in the biggest games.

    In an October game between the Titans and Texans, I cannot bet on total number of carries by the backup runningback, distance of first punt, team to recover the first fumble, etc. Need to have just a few outs and I have access to thousands of bets like that on the Super Bowl. By putting all these lines on the board, it is certain there will be something with an edge for the bettor. It is my job to find them and pick them off.

    I have noticed that for the championship games, Super Bowl etc...the line tends to set in several days before the games. I like that with no movements late.. Now the first few days after it comes out there is some movement... Then it seems to lock in even if some high roller in Vegas bets $500,000 on it.. Of course his 1/2 million may not mean as much as $500. to others. It's all relative.

    I think this is the case, yes.

    How many people do you think vary amounts on games? Most? Or do most bet flat every game?
