    Do books lie about the lines they post to the odds feed

    I am looking at betpheonix, and it displays totals and moneylines for NCAA basketball, yet when I look in my account, I see no odds listed for anything expect spreads.

    They obviously have different stores and the one hooked to the lines feed has everything offered. I have no idea if Phoenix is just postup or if they dabble in PPH also. So probably different offerings for different people is my guess.

    FUNNY story about this posted on forum a year or two ago. I wish I could find the thread about it.

    An Australian book who was sick of another book copying their lines added some smart assed comments to a couple of markets in their feed to prank the other book.

    There was some thread on here, maybe 5 or 6 years ago. It was Emily Heines talking about some book breaking their ankles trying to follow another book's odds. Something like bookmaker would pretend to change a line to something to screw over some square books. Too long ago to remember.

    This was back in the days when Heritage used to chase around 5D overnight line moves (now they ignore them):
