Wow, it's been quiet in here for the past.. few months.
I'd like to think it's because people have nothing important to say, and I can respect that. Posting a pick and a line or two, demonstrates very little in terms of and research and understanding.
I'd like to discuss betting 1 game in proline, although it's impossible, sort of/kind of.
There is one way to play one game, and that is to "box" a selection, although for proline, the odds aren't great, at first glance. For example, if you play spreads (in the west) you get 2.5/1 on a basketball and football bet. That means if you box 1 game (betting 2 tickets) and win, you claim 20% profit. Yes those are terrible odds, and it's a bet I wouldn't take. But.. over/unders in the west also require only 2 picks, and range in odds from 2.00 to 1.45.
Therfore..two 1.7 bets give you around a 30-33% winning payout, which isn't great, but beats the point spread number, and at 33% profit for 1 night isn't that bad ion a small bet; assuming you hit your "key game"
This payout may not come close to your online odds, but that's not what this post is about. It's about using the rules that are in place to profit, and about betting 1 game.
If you agree or disagree..cool. Call me a square, call me short sighted and narrow minded, but please don't post an emoticon to express you level of interest. In my mind there's nothing more lame. Unless you count numberous posts in a SJP's column.
Fire away, although I won't respond to made up aliases with less than 10 posts.
Always looking for a way for us to profit and wishing you luck,
