    If you bet the Yanks vs Braves and think Arod, Jeter, etc are making the trip, you shouldn't be betting. Maybe 1 in 100 times this will happen.
    You promised to ease up a few months back Robby, remember that nice thread you wrote?..Its nice to have guys contribute stuff here daily.

    Now go on off to your African watering hole. There is a family of possums that drink there daily this time of the afternoon. If the big fat one with the white patches on his chest drinks first it means take the underdog in the 7pm espn game

    Rudy, let me tell you how I really feel. You bring no capping knowledge or ability to the board. Actually, that is me.

    Maybe I was having a bad day. When I first saw this info a few years ago I thought it would help, but with st baseball it doesn't. It just makes you think you can get an edge. You look at a home team vs the away team, say both teams are equally matched. The away team almost all of the good guys don't make the trip. Equal pitchers, but the home team is -130. Very hard to get an advantage and it would be interesting for you to write why or what advantage you found when capping these games, win or lose.

    Please accept my apologies for being a jerk. Any info is useful and I was an ass about it.

    Straight, you heard the mating call of the water buffalo and rubbed one out to it. Don't lie.

    Rob,

    I think I can speak for most of SBR when I say this: Shut the FuKK up!

    You are always in a bad mood. You post less useful material to this site than I do, and I will tell you that takes some practice!

    So GODDAMNIT STFU for a moment and say something constructive instead of destructive! I am sure you could if you really tried hard.

    Thats all.

    Farlee, did you read my apology? No, didn't think so. Thanks though for contributing to another worthless post. We should be worthless post tag team partners.

    if you change spring training baseball to any other sport, the same thing is true.

    OK OK my bad!

    I did not read past the second sentence. I have a hard time doing that with your posts when you start off pissed off. They seem to usually steam down to your last sentence like a turd off a hairy ass.


    But again that was my mistake as you did apologize. So I extend the same.

    I hear you. Again, please accept my apologies for my rant yesterday. I was trying to pick your brain with that last question. I'm not here 24/7, but one thing I noticed about you is you are a realist when it comes to wins/losses in gambling and how it may have affected things in life. Not many men would be truthful here. Almost everyone here is a winner.

    Pitching rotations are key in spring training..especially knowing which guys will be in there later, not starting...

    Spring training games are 50/50 and with +money options. Betting black or red is less than 50%. Also, if you bet black or red in SBR casino, your chances are less than ~20% ???

    There is also some decent value in some of those games. I also go to watch some, so it makes it more fun.

    betting spring training allows you to follow what's going on with teams earlier. i would say it gives you an edge over those who don't. but then again, what do i know?

    Spring training is a total coin flip. It's ridiculous and a tease compared to the real season. Would you bet a NFL Preseason Game?
