    Which do you prefer: low vig books or books that offer a nice bonus?

    I would prefer both but prefer low vig books.

    Take the low vig everytime...bonuses can be a real hassle with rollover requirements

    I choose both. I always have an account at Pinny but I will take a bonus and wait for the loose line or special perk days.

    If you do not post up over $1000 a bonus is not worth it

    i still question that one though JJ. i guess it depends on how much you bet a game, to see if it's truely worth it.

    $20 players are the type of people that love bonuses JJ. players like ourselves could care less if we get a bonus or not.

    John, after losing to your locals on a weekly basis, i can see why you look for the bonuses

    It depends. If I could only have one book, it would probably be Pinnacle for the low juice.

    But if the question is about what kind of book I would like right now to add to what I've already got, I'd say give me a big fat, lazy bonus.

    Low vig at Pinny. Occassionally dump some into Bodog to get the bonus if I see a dog I like at a good price.

    Low juice easily. Pinny and Mansion, maybe now Cascade. I play a lot of bonuses and have used many shops just for the bonus. Call me a whore, but I bite on those big bonus offers often, if the shop doesn't have too horrible a reputation.

    I play dog at bonus shop and fav at good shop, not looking for side value just a close line usually ( less vig). I want quick in and out at questionable book. I always manage to do it and avoid long holds, etc. It helps if I like the game, but I want out quick and let the lines guide me.

    Looks like 50-50 right now so I guess a player preference. I still rather play at a low juice shop instead of trying to hit rollovers and force ebts.

    yes, but most of those books that offer nice bonuses use either a 10 or 20 cent like and, being a dog bettor, i'd stand to make more money with the low vig over the long haul.

    Low Vig, no question about it. Sure free money is nice, but if you're a long term player with a bankroll anywhere in the 4 figures, gotta be low vig.

    Low vig is always the best. I will take -108 over 30x rollover and 30 day hold any day of the week.
