    1. Flip Coins on tough decisions

    2. Have atleast two big 4 team parlays a night.

    3. Only gamble when I'm drinking, depressed or feel the urge to chase.

    4. Fade ACE - ACE

    5. Always play internet black jack at the end of the night. $50 hands.

    6. Pay $2,000 a month for Brandon Lane, Wayne Root, Brian Mac, and any other tout that calls me more than 3 times a day. If he has that much dedication and cares about me winning that much.....he must be good.

    My rents might disown me, seeing that they both went to FSU haha. But they DO like that IN-STATE tuition. It's a deal LT, but I won't be swaying or singin 'ol boys.

    I do already have the stats to get in though, so we can put the FSU education thing to bed lol.

    Speaking of Bed, gotta get up at 730 :( Night y'all, this is a solid thread.

    Especially in a sport with so much emotion, like college sports, picking winners is more than just stats & numbers. If you watch the games because of your desire, you will begin to pick up valuable instincts that will lead you to the winner circle.

    For example, during this past basketball season, I rarely missed a Big 10 hoop game -- at one point I hit 10 straight Big 10 b-ball games.

    Granted, I'm sure many gamblers don't necessarily have this type of passion for the game they are betting on, and are nonetheless successful. BUT, having a passion for the sport will increase your edge against the book.

    I believe stats, systems, flip of a coin picks have nowhere near as much importance as money management. That is the BIGGEST part of gambling. And where MOST gamblers fail. Most gamblers, just throw $100, $300, $900, $1k, $2k, $3k, lol, roughly any amount that suits their feelings for the moment, on the games they play. And what happens? They get murdered during loosing streaks. Or, pretty much just a few losses. Streaks come and go. Wether your a pro capper, or, an amateur capper, just betting casually, you need to realize good money management. That is more than 80% of the success in sports betting.

    As far as picking your selections goes....stay away from half plays, quarter plays, ...pretty much anything that has you make a selection based on a portion of the game. Sporting events are better predicted, in their "final" result. And, you don't need a system, or any "capping" to pick a game. You just need to know your teams, know how they're performing as of late, and just put your money on ONLY what you feel STRONGEST about. I know some guys that don't do ANY capping, or use ANY systems, and go on win streaks that last for what seem like forever. I've not met one "capper" to this day, that has matched someone who can just "call" their plays.

    In any event, I can't stress how IMPORTANT keen money management is.

    Good luck everyone!

    First:
    No Parlays / Teasers / Prop bets.

    Second:
    Have outs to get the best possible number

    Third:
    Do not lay over -139 on any play in baseball

    Fourth:
    NBA Home dogs on Friday nights are solid.

    Fifth:
    CFB / CBB Home court is huge...

    Sixth:
    The Cowboys / Notre Dame / Lakers are always 1 to 2 points heavy on the true number.. There public teams...

    Seventh:
    Returning Center / O-line and QB are the most inportant thing early in CFB season... Returning starters are huge but the center runs the o-line and the QB the team...

    Eight:
    Listen to me....

    Have no problem with any of your recommendations, with the exception of the very first one.

    PARLAYS, TEASERS, and PROPS are all used by professionals to gain an edge on the bookie.

    Defense

    In most match-ups defense dictates the way a game will be played and which team will control it. This works in football, basketball, hockey, soccer, and even baseball, as the pitcher is the defensive stopper or not. This is even more applicable when the post season arrives in each sport. Just watch the current adjustments in the NBA and NHL playoffs and take notice.

    You are correct sir.

    As far as parlays and props, maybe no use to you, but trust me in the fact that many SUPREME wiseguys use them in their arsenal to bang out some good bucks.

    Parlay cards are a useful option at 2-3 books out there.
