    Would you pay $15,000 for the Buckeye Database

    I just read an article by Chad Millman in ESPN the magazine about the Buckey database. Tom Stryker helped build the database and only sold 9 copies for $15,000 each. Dr. Bob, Marc Lawrence etc each have a copy. If you had the chance would you buy a copy? Also, has anyone here used the database?

    Depends what's in it... a lot of good info is pretty easy to accumulate nowadays.

    ^no ******* doubt

    from what I read I dont see what the big deal is. If the database would spit on winners that would be one thing but it is just stats and trends.

    Databases are not worth that much. I built a combined NFL and NCAAFB statistical database with closing spreads and totals for less than $1000.

    Not a chance in hell. The guys who bought it use it to make selections to sell. None of them are ahead $ wise off their betting. They make dough from the dumbasses that pay for picks.

    Good read. I should put all these database classes I keep taking to good use and create a database to toy around with.

    Why would I pay $15K for the Buckeye database when I have a better NBA database than what that one has, with more in-depth data and more info than that one has by far?...

    I started mine from scratch and it took me close to 3 years to build it and I have been adding to it ever since...I even have a boxscore for every game...

    Looks like it is heavy on trend plays, or did I misread the bottom portion from Big Al?

    Once it becomes more accepted in the states, they won't mention the result of a game without mentioning who covered.

    Hmmm, I mean, if that database is worth 15K, and my database has MORE NBA info (pertinent info, not meaningless info), then that one has, why would I "share" it for free?...Obviously, after reading that article, my database certainly is worth some coin, but in all honesty, it's probably something I should keep private as the info it contains is invaluable, quite frankly...

    Maybe I can post a sample of it, we'll see, but I don't even know if I should do that...I do sell a much smaller version of my private database online, but the private one is not for sale...

    Funny sh*t..."Now there are different players on all the teams"...Really?...What does that have to do with actual situational handicapping?...

    Answer: Absolutely nothing...

    I guess there aren't too many actual handicappers on this forum...No biggie...

    You can buy the MLB, NFL, NBA, CFB and CBB database at less than USD 30 at Sports Gambling Site.
