    Hey G-master,

    Thank you for the entertaing post. I'm definitely not the Hen. SG just happened to help me out a when I needed it a while ago. Although, I always found the Hen an entertaining post.

    What's next, you call me Mr. McIrish? UnF*cking likely.

    Why do you think I'm the Hen?

    BTW Mr. McIrish is one of the most solid guys you'll ever find. I believe Hen is solid also.

    Who apart from trying to price up a game as accurate as possible also tries to make a prediction of how the market move will be?

    There is no mention of risk. Over the long run you will make money...but what about the risk of going broke? Sick's advice is good for a solid bankroll. For those with a limited bankroll, I would middle and scalp. Open up LOTS of accounts and get to work.

    Good luck

    If the game went to 12 at most of the sharp sports books, but you can still get a 10, the right decision is to lay the 10 but NOT MIDDLE a 10 and a 12!!!

    Why would anyone want to give up a 2 point advantage to be at a disadvantage with what I call a stupes middle (10-12 is weak)...

    As I stated before, MIDDLING football is for LOSERS and you will eventually go BROKE trying to make a living doing it...

    HOOPS on the other hand is a completely different story that offers a much better chance to win at!

    THE SHRINK

    Shrink...I guess I'm a loser [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]

    I agreee that -10 and +12 aint the right move, and I don't want to get into specific numbers, but anything can be middled. I for one have have south florida +4 so miss -2.5. I don't have an opinion on the game so I play the numbers. Most would argue that I'm giving away my advantage when I take the strong side. I agree. But I am also reducing my risk. I still have an advantage on the play and my risk is minimal.

    I think my local has all squares betting with him. They have no clue about this. I will keep you posted on the differences in lines and will try it for awhile. On Saturday's college games is where there are most differences. Thanks.

    I don't think I'd middle on a 10 and 12, but the halftime middle was a sweet 8 pts last night - and it hit...these are generally the sorts of middles that I look for in foots...

    Memphis+12 at bowmans
    memphis 13-10 at half with Lou -7 for 2nd half
    final 38-32 Lou

    sometimes when the local is off 5-6 points i will put 300 on say for instance one side and then 500 on the side in your favor.this way you have chance to middle and also have 200 minus vig in your favor.hope this helps some

    The opening total for a college game is 52..the line moves to 54 at most sportsbooks..one book has it at u55.5...another one(Pinnacle) has it at 53.5

    What do you do?

    I didn't try to middle this week but just took what I thought was the advantage with local book and got killed!! I bet four games with him and they all lost. He upped the lines on the pro games. He had Cinn.+8.5 instead of 5.5...Wash.+4.5 instead of +1...Cleveland...+10.5 instead of 7 and Seattle +6.5 instead of +3. Instead of trying to middle I loaded up on the four dogs figureing I was getting big value and would hit at least 3 out of 4. Instead I went 0-4!!! Any more advice? I need it now. Thanks.

    curt,


    I'm sorry to hear that. But you know the rule of gambling. You CANNOT judge it by 4 games If you go with such a short amount of games, you will lose your marbles. You should go by 1000 games. Hell, if you go by 4 games, then you would have thought Billy Walters is a big loser had you played his games 2 saturdays ago when he went 1-10 in 11 games.

    BTW, how in the hell did you get those #'s? I'd be worried of getting paid with this bookie with #'s like that. How can anyone survive giving out #'s like this. You should not be worried in winning, but you should be worried in collecting your money when you do win.

    He has been in business for years and has always paid. I found out that just recently he got tired of always giving out the lines to everyone and decided it wwas easier for everyone to buy the paper. You never know week to week what lines he is going to up if any. Thanks sick.

    First I would like to admit that I DIDN'T even read the thread by SG.

    Second I would like to say the Sick is a liar and piece of crap and anyone who follows this losers advice is just going to go broke like Sick himself.
