    A better description would be "locked in some sort of of profit AND/OR the prevention of any potential REAL loss".

    I would say, 70% - 80% of my NBA and Baseball plays are totals.

    would it also be fair to assume that if the line didnt move quite enough for a profit that you bought back to just break even on a number of those plays ?

    if possible ...

    so you are totally exposed on roughly 15 % of your plays each week .

    are you over 55 % on those ? i hope so . i also think so..

    takes the right kind of talent to pick up 10 here , 20 there , another 25 over there , 50 here , 0 there ....

    it all adds up..

    Wouldn't go that far.........just simply a disciplined grinder.

    Not much more, not much less...........except on a few occassions.

    to do what you do the right way , i would reckon one would need 10 to 15 outs with atleast $ 1000 at each place to scalp out some coin.. if not a few more outs than that with even more money available .

    would also need a few grand ready to go at neteller .

    is this a fair statement ?

    I would say you need (or would prefer) A LOT more than that.

    really ...

    what would be the optimum way to approach it ?

    30 outs with $ 1000 to $ 1500 at each ?

    No, each (or some) out having a lot more than $1,000 or $1,500. If you're scalping or middling you should be betting max.

    You have to understand that Fish can still play at SIA, Bet365, and the VIP group of books. All of the above books will toss a winner in a New York second. You have to be really sharp to lose your scalps at the slow square books and win at the Pinnacles.
