    I really like the posted lines for the different sportsbooks, updated in real time. https://www.sbrodds.com/linesbottom.aspx

    Maybe SBR could ask these books to include percentages on the public and the money in each game, also in real time. Could be a great capping tool!

    Look forward to it. It's probably no longer the same as in his day, but access to the numbers was big to legendary sports bettor Stan Tomchin:

    "I had a team of people (who called bookmakers across the country). I never called a single bookmaker. My guys would call me up and say: " Here are the lines." I had a big sheet and I'd say: "Read me the numbers." I'd monitor them every day. I knew where the linemakers were located. I knew which ones were sharp. I knew which ones had the guts to put up a line and stick with it awhile. When a game opened at 6.5 and moved to 7, then, slowly over the week, 7.5, that was the public. But when a game opened at 6.5 on Monday, and on Tuesday it was 8, that wasn't the public. Some sharp outfit had come in and someone knew something. There are a lot of intricacies in how the line moves. It's something I studied for years. I was able to solve the riddle.
    I don't even have to know who's playing. I don't have to know anything. I can look at the numbers and I can tell you the winners." (from Gambling Wizards).
