    I have had friends who bet with this local and he has been rock solid with payouts for years. I just started with him a little while ago. In the Cincy-Miami(Ohio)game on Saturday,he had a total of 53. I saw that Pinnacle had 59. I didn't try to middle it but bet over with the local. Final score 31-26 for a total of 57. The line is right out of the paper. He uses the New York Dailey News. The Saturday paper is printed in the early afternoon on Friday so he does not have the updated lines but the lines he does have are pretty true if you bet the Saturday games on Friday. I don't know what the big deal is becasue it can go either for or against you.

    first of all good luck with the guy, and if your guy can run a book using the lines out of the paper good for him, (especially if hes been in business for a while) its just that in my experience a person that runs a book using lines from the paper doesnt know much about the business, and all it takes is a few sharp players to shut him down pretty quick.

    i've got 1 guy i play into here who takes it off the paper. It is great because when Shaq and Kobe are out and the line is now Lakers -5.5, I end up getting Dog +13 sometimes. Now here is the tricky part. This guy here is clueless, and I am very thankful that he has 60 customers and myself and someone else are the only guys who know what we are doing. They are all squares, I saw his sheet. But what I do is I have a settling figure of 5k with him. Anytime it reaches 5k, we collect. Sometimes i am meeting this guy everyday or 9 out of 10 days. This way, I cannot get stiffed by him because it's a matter of time before I do get stiffed by him. But here is the good part. I scalp and middle every game that is off with this guy with my offshore books. So here is the good news for me. I cannot beat this guy if my life depended on it. I must be down now over 300 dimes to this guy lifetime, and I love it. This bookie loves me to death. He thinks I'm the biggest square he's ever seen, which is absolutely great for me. I want him to think this, because it's a matter of time when i win 6 straight weeks and take him out of business by winning back the 300 dimes, plus interest. I just hope I keep losing to this guy. But i would recommend if anyone plays with a guy like this, settle with him on a daily basis if you have to. Don't ever make a figure run that high. It's a matter of time before these dummies go down.

    curt,

    yes, bet every single game that is off. The games that are off by a little, don't put much. But the games that are off by a lot, bet big on them. Try to bet the most for your dollar.

    So are you saying to middle? Or should I bet more with the local or only with the local? I appreciate your input.

    eddie murray,

    I'm sorry, but I really have NO f-in idea what you are talking about, but you seem pissed at me. Why??? Please explain.. thanks

    curt,

    I'm a wuss. I hate to admit it, but i am NOT a gambler, and I hate losing money. I am a bad sport and a terrible loser when i lose. So i do it the gutless way. But in the long haul, you are waaaaaaay better off gambling than scalping or middling. Especially if you can get big points off these games. You will clean up!! Don't be like me. If you are a born gambler and you have a strong heart to face those interception TD returns, or a missed extra point, then gamble.

    eddie murray,

    I guess it is you (journeyman). I should have known with the eddie murray, being one of the best Orioles player ever and you from Baltimore. I still didn't understand one word you said from this recent post of yours. It sounded like you were talking with your mouth full.

    journey,

    i don't even think you know what the hell you were saying. You sounded confused. So what were you saying, were you insulting me? I don't really care if you were, but I was just curious.

    Man, if I ever get banned from here, I will just come back like you with a different handle. Maybe call myself "Vladimir Guerrero, Expos lover" I'm sure no one will know it's me, seeing I'm from Montreal. It worked for you, and you're from Balty. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]

    journey,

    I NEVER really cared what you did, it didn't bother me at all. It didn't involve me and you NEVER stole from me, so I didn't care. If you wanna sell things, go ahead, I don't care, it's not my site. But it just wasn't nice of you to hope cancer on Peep, or go to MW and bash us all here, or even threaten to kill Peep and slap him out. Those things were NOT nice at all. Aside from those things, you really did NOTHING that serious.

    ... [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img].......

    he percieved(i will be nice) (i`m sure i`m being watched behind the glass)he percieved things that were way off what was reality, of course i took offense, i never said i would kill him, although i was infuriated by what he did and said...

    eddie carried the orioles for years cal couldn`t have carried the orioles i was there, he hit 500 homers when that meant something too! 500 with todays exchange rate is about 620, he was the best player in baseball from like 83 to 87, he was the best clutch hitter in the game at the time!

    Sick,

    Some friendly advice....

    Stick to scalping and middling because you aren't bright enough to figure out in advance what the closing lines will be on anything unless of course, you are a psychic or an orginator...

    If you think even the above average gambler can do as you say, than maybe they can pass Calculus 3 for my nephew in Harvard, lol..

    Tonight, the consensus line is say -11...5 minutes before kickoff, bowmans is at -12, carib at -10...which way do you go?

    fortunately, I called all Sick Gambler's friends and they told me take the -10...so I took the +12... [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    thrill, that was a tough call at -10 and +12. This don't happen to me too often. If I was in that situation, I would take the side that the play was on. For example, if the line was 10 and going to 12 eventually, I would have laid the -10. If the line was 12 and going down to 10, i would have taken the +12. I don't know what was the play because I did NOT even look at college footsies tonight. If there was NO move on the game, I would have just middled it at -10 and +12.

    it screws up my EA Sports pc hockey and baseball game. I keep hearing a noise everytime I'm on a breakaway or something. Last time, Saku Koivu had a penalty shot for the Habs, and I started hearing all these bells, which confused the hell out of me. I got nervous and fanned on the shot, as I had Hasek beat, these bells scared me, and the Habs ended up losing in OT in the playoffs, and I was eliminated. I came so close to advancing to the Stanley cup final and upsetting Hasek and the Red Wings. I never came close again to winning Lord Stanley, thanks to that stupid MSN messenger. Ever since then, NEVER again have I installed this crap.

    The opening line was around -9.5 on monday. Then it moved to -11. This morning the line was -11 then it moved to -10...then it started to move up again. 2-3 minutes before kick off thlne as -11.5 at Pinnacle then it dropped to -10.5, at carib the line moved from -10 to -10.5, at WSEX the line dropped from -11.5 to -11...so I would say +12 was the right side!

    Nice thread Sick. Very good.

    Curt - good luck. Hope you follow what Sick is saying. When I was younger I had several opportunities to take advantage of these situations and blew them. I either was too dumb to take advantage or too greedy to make it last longer than I should. Went for the big kills instead of just milking the guy along and got ran.

    If your local takes numbers from the papers he better be taking almost exclusively square action or be throwing out winners right away or no way can he last. Get on line and see where the numbers really are and take the best side of it. If you don't understand ask more questions until you do.

    These are the topics some folks really can learn from.
