    Local bookies need to come back in full force.

    Some hung it up when states got legal books coming to town.....There's definetly going to be a need moving forward if people have half a brain.

    30 cent line on a hockey game from BetMGM?

    I swear I'm thinking of starting a book and managing it sharp.

    There is such a need in the US.

    Horseshoe these guys aren't sportsbooks, they are all just advertising and marketing companies that take bets from the public.

    Nothing more.

    Some of these lines can be exploited across the market by traders though, but that doesn't make them good book managers..lol.

    Outside of them sometimes being off market, and us sometimes getting a good price, these fukkers are real stingy when it comes to beating the derivatives.

    That's where they are exposed.

    Thank God at least 6 offshore offer dime lines although they have a massive advantage they have very little cost to operate


    Itís an unfair advantage they have over the USA books

    Locals are all on credit. Quit them as soon as possible. Never around when it's payday.

    I prefer to only play at credit books these days. It is the best option, customer service is faster than anywhere, faster payouts, top notch all around. Credit is the way to go.

    NO MFW ever i hate them they limit your action soon as you kick there ass 5 str8 weeks only pay 3-1 odds on 3 team parlay

    a push on teaser bet is a LOSS fuggggggg em all oooooooooooo yes this too in season games never give ML on Dogs none of em every one i tried just said no take the points and so what if they win game

    last year NFL a $20 wager on 3 dogs ML paid me huge all happened on sunday and after late game was over drove to local sports book

    and cashed out at cashiers cage after waiting 20 mins

    imagine you make a 12 point dog a - 3 chalk then what your odds go +++++ it happens every week in nfl and daily in NBA

    oooo yes play polls with local bookies hit 4 teamer for $10 win $100 nope you they keep your $10 you only got $100 supposed to be $110

    KVB is right. Itís damn near criminal

    Luckily there is a voice out there, some people who seem to have some sway who make it a point to call this shit out. And a book like Circa that really needs to get its ass out there more. I mean it really does get depressing to think down the road what if this becomes our only option, this shit thatís stacked so far against you that itís only worth a fun night out on the town and not something we can take seriously and actually try to beat. Hell even if I can never actually beat the books I still enjoy the thrill of the hunt but when youíre priced out from the beginning then thatís just not fukking right

    You misunderstand.

    It's a bonanza alright, but these aren't sportsbooks, they're marketing companies. Like I said, they can be picked off and beaten up and down on derviatives and even some parlays.

    But a market leading account's time can be limited at many of them.

    That is the landscape.
