    I do not simply because of price. I am a dollar player and I can't justify it for the amounts I'm putting on games. I would certainly never use a tout.....EVER.

    bigboydan, thanks for the recognition. If you used us last year, you have GOT to try it out this year! 100% improvement. Faster lines, fastest injury updates in the industry. Also have a 2 week free trial.

    Free services have their place, but a sportsbook or professional cant really use them. For the recreational gambler they make perfect sense. The business model is perfect, the square will use a free service, the books will pay advertisement for the squares.

    Ebone, take me up on a free 2 week trial, see if your BR doesnt increase a significant amount.

    Good Stuff

    The db screen has made me a lot of $ for years and it is outstanding for sure, BUT at a "$nick" or so EVERY month it does add up 4 sure.

    have heard some good things Mike about you guys and am going to check you out before we really start rolling here buddy.

    They have been #1 for years with no competition in sight. They were able to charge whatever they want. You dont know how common your story really is. People hate paying the $550 per month, but what could they do? I wont take anything away from Don Best, but I honestly believe we are right there with them, and faster with some information. Definitely worth the free try.

    G&J is a must have service. They have everything that DB has for 1/2 the price.

    Yea..I do.

    Most players have no need to pay. The olny ones that do are bookmakers and arbs.

    I think that it pays off in the long run. Saving that extra cent or two in bases adds up. Getting the extra 1/2 pt is a must.

    Hi John,

    Not to sure is the plain and simple answer to that question. I have just recently come across their offerings and since they are not as expensive as others i thought i would ask you guys to see. They are offering a two week free trial for those that have signed up as free members, obviously with the hope you'll like it and subscribe. They seem to be fairly open and honest so i guess i'll give it a try. As an aussie and not a huge american sports gambler i need all the help i can get!

    Keep ya posted.

    I work for http://www.sportspunter.com - it's got the main offshore & European books but also Australian ones - Aussie ones are government regulated so they have to have enough funds in trust to cover every bet they accept. A lot of aussie books will also accept high roller action.

    The premium service is good but most punters would be satisfied with the free service.

    Some peeople from Covers were using Sports insights. The idea is that it will show you which lines the wiseguys are betting on. The guys started betting on the wiseguy plays and won a couple and then they lost their asses. Players dont get the play until after the odds have moved so they were getting worthless informatin. Its just like the page sportsbook.com has that shows you what percentage of money is on each team.

    firefox's tab browsing allows me to looks at live lines to as many books as I want.

    those services offer more than just lines.
