    My suggestion (trust me on this) is a shop(s) that cater to "professional" players.

    I know this isn't your question but I'd suggest splitting your money up into different books.

    1) you can get different outs/lines and select the best
    2) there is less risk with your money in different places (like a diversified portfolio....if one books goes busto you aren't busto)
    3) probably better to not have one $20k shot of money going into one place......for many reasons.
    4) I'd suggest some of the rx sponsored books. Rx doesn't insure the money but Wil will try his hardest to make sure you are 100% satisfied......as suggested, Betjm, 5dimes, and Matchbook are solid.....i'd also look at BetPhoenix and Legendz

    i use both 5dimes and pinny and shop around for the best lines. when you place bets with 5dimes make sure you place your bets whereeve possible via reduced juice lines available up until 8 a.m. each morning, oftening 2 or 3 points cheaper.

    90 percent of them from you.
    "Tony" pays me on time, never cut my limits, and excluding the exchanges, is the best book out there.

    Im not exactly a high roller just have found somethings that work and want to take advantage. I am just putting in what I have made so far this season and I have another person that is willing to match what I put in. I want to see if I can use this baseball $ to by a new investment property so basically if things go well i get a free house

    I'd go MB but it is light on props, futures and soft bets like that. Love in the in-game and just how tight the lines are though.
