    I am tired of guys wasting their time trying to get 1/2 points all day I really am. Most lines are all identical now day and night and you are wasting valuable time thinking you are getting uniquew numbers.

    Actually the phrase line shopping now a days is a hug square phrase. Years ago there were unique numbers and could easily find 1-2 point differentials but those days are over.

    It all depends on when you bet game and if you could predict line movement then you are sharp.

    I know many guys that have one book and win evey year as long as they have access to a book that puts out overnights, they know when to bet game period.

    I know guys that have 20 outs and know others that have one out and the guy with one out will most of the time get the best line because he is good at predicting line movements.

    I love guys that have 20 outs and shop all friggin day and get Knicks +4 and the guy that has one out has Knicks +5 because he bet early or late depending on his ability to prject line movement.

    I am always slipping over the squares around here and trying to teach you clowns some ****.

    The key is to beat the closing number and not the book that has best line at time of bet.

    If you are slipping over squares, I suggest you stop tripping over yourself because you are the king of the squares.

    JJ why do you keep starting these moronic 'attention-whore-look-at-me-im-a-complete-retard-and-sqaure-please-accept-me-for-it' type threads trying to say middling is no good and neither is line shopping. christ we'd all be in the poor house if we listened to this garbage.

    JJ, I think you are scaring away all the sharp players that guys like me can learn from. they come here and they see dont middle dont shop and they say 'oh this place is full of dum dums look at this JJ guy'. 'what a ******* he is' and then they leave and we lose them to mad jacks or phoenix or something. stop chasing away the talent bro. thanks.

    squares line shop period

    It is when you bet game not when you Like Detroit and go look at 20 books and get -4 when I got it overnight at -3

    It is all timing, I laugh so loud when guys line shop

    If you do not beat closing number your a fuikkin loser period

    Good journalism is about stirring debate. I think that is what JJ is doing many times and it sure works.

    I beleive in everything I write that is why I am one of the mot powerful posters in the world if you disagree fine

    I no longer waste my time line shopping for a silly 1/2 point when I can try and project line and bet early or wait for the line I want with 1 Book!!!

    Many do this!!!

    How about a comprimise you don't need 30 outs, but 5-8 is enough to shop a little, and not just try to beat one place.
