    Is there a reason why you like 7-pt teasers more than 6 in the preseason?

    1. Always bet more than you can afford to lose. This is probably the best way of all to get rid of unwanted assets. Gamble with the rent money or the grocery money.

    2. Bet on all the games and keep changing the sizes of your bets. Increasing your wagers when losing is a sure fire way of losing all your money quickly.

    3. Place lots of futures bets, parlays and teasers. Anybody will win now and then if they place these types of bets but will lose a lot over the long run.

    4. Only gamble when you are tired, drunk or trying to impress someone.

    5. Pay for advice from touts who claim to win at least 70% to 90% on all their picks against the spread. If one could do that they would be very rich in a matter of a couple of months. Believe them and purchase their 10,000 star ****s or T.V. game of the month.

    6. Always bet according to your hunches and superstitions. Bet teams that are "due" or bet more on the days you feel "lucky".

    7. Never read books or articles on sports wagering. Never keep records or do research. Don't waste your time searching for the best line.

    1.always Bet They Same Amount On Each Game. I See So Many Times That A Person Wins 3 Out Of 4 And Loses Money Because Of This.
    2. Teasers In College Ball Is A No No
    3. Do Not Ever Cross The Zero
    4. Check For Winds In Pro Ball For Unders And It Helps To See Who Is Playing In These Winds ( Ex. 10/29 - Giants/tampa - Phil/seat) Tampa - No Offense - Seattle - No Offense)

    If you're winning- no problem,

    but if you're losing then do exactly (pick) the OPPOSITE.

    REAL simple.

    Don't bet the road team in the EPL over + 200 and never bet an under 2.5 over - 150. I say this because I see people do it all the time.

    For those who asked, here's Fezz record.

    Fezzik CBB Fezziks 190 154 0.552325581 20.6
    Fezzik CFB Fezziks 218 207 0.512941176 -9.7
    Fezzik NBA Fezziks 205 183 0.528350515 3.7
    Fezzik NFL Fezziks 697 589 0.541990669 49.1

    This is over about 5 years against WA #s and does not include his 65% this year.

    I would estimate he is a 53.5% capper against WA numbers in CFB, NBA, and CBB. He has "employed" some help this year in CFB and on totals so that may go up.

    I would estimate he is a 54.5-55% NFL capper with WA numbers.

    Writing books is stupid... Much more money in betting.

    Do
    1) Use a trusted website
    2) Bet within your limits
    3) Use your own information to pick your games
    4) Shop around for the best lines
    5) Keep track of all your bets your have made then see if you do best in certain situations

    Don't
    1) Chase your loses-"downward" spiral
    2) Have to bet just because it's Thursday night football or Sunday night football etc
    3) Do parlays/teasers/player props or live bets: focus on a moneyline bet/spread or total only
    4) Focus on who the public is betting on: focus on what information you have with a underdog if you love them
    5) Buy handicappers/syndicates picks that say:
    "Inside information" "Lock of the year" "Lock of the month" "500 * Plays" "Underdog Special" "Were on FIRE" "Were up +1000 units" just check there record and also reviews made about them before you consider buying but I would save it to bet another game for the future

    Good luck all!
