    Can any SBR member help an old alter boy?

    Spank's "LIMIT" notification seems to be (as he said) a helpful tool.

    I'm a little foggy on how, but I think it's something like the following;

    It's more advantageous for a player to bet into low limit games.

    I'm not sure, but I think that's what the tool is for.

    Can anybody explain "why" this is the case; if indeed it is the case..............

    I used them until the end of the NBA season, but not since then. It was all real time then and always before that. It's literally advertised (or was) as real time odds.

    Iíve been looking at it Iím not that impressed itís not that easy to read difficult to get scores and the lines many are not, I think itís free for a while because itís nowhere near a paying product, I actually like that wager talk line service Its hooked into DB on a delay, The guy that runs it was a long time employee of the DB

    People are creaming their pants over this on Twitter, it's not that great and he said it will be free for the entire NFL season, then I'm sure it will be 5k a year.

    Just tampering with the Spank Odds functions.

    In particular, the "Line Move Alert" function. (does DB have this?)

    I'm testing out line moves of 2.5% of value.

    Not sure I comprehend the concept.

    Lets use Boise -17 as an example.

    Would a 2.5% value line move be .42? (2.5% of 17)

    And that would, I think, result in a "line move indicator" of "Boise now -17.5".

    But what about line increments. (i.e. from -17 -105 to -17 -120)?

    How much of a value line move is that.

    Or for the Bases. Let's say Chisx from -115 to -125.

    Anyone know how to figure the value% of line move for that.

    The "value line move" is an option in the sub-section of the "line move alerts" drop down column.

    My 8th grade math teacher (Sister Mary Elepehant) would be pissed.........

    Don Best has a line alert in the setup. You can set it for any books you want to. There are lots of different options for this. Sound of course if you want it also. DB also has a "key move" alert, and even a "middle" alert. There are tons of other options that can easily be set up if you want.

He can charge a lot less maybe and be successful, but for anyone wagering large amounts it is worthless compared to Don Best.
    I agree with this. Spanky has to either be very competitive in pricing... OR... have something extremely useful that DB doesn't have. I think Spanky can be the #1 feed/source here... but he has more work to do.

    Where do you think all these books, both offshore and in the US get their lines? Almost every one of them have accounts with Don Best. That has been a fact for a long time.

    You don'r really think they are interested in anything that is not real time. Bells and whistles are for the suckers, not pros on both sides of the fence.

    Some get it through 3rd parties like Sports Radar

    DB used to dominate the market back in the old days when they got live feed from Cris.

    Thats obviously gone now.

    But they do get the Sports411 which is supposedly the bookmaker/Cris line. Could never figure out that name change
    shananagin a few years back. and DB gets the "BetCris" line.

    Its all nonsense.

    Donbest doesnít have pinnacle though right? I mean isnít that supposed to be one of the main things that sets Spankodds apart? But if itís a minimum of a 38 second delay, like biggie said earlier, thatís not super great anyway

    Right, DB lost pinnacle months ago.

    I think they either require a shit ton of money now to get their live feed, or said the hell with providing live data to line services.
