Morita Line v Bratchikova opened -175 and is now -350...

Has to be ALOT of money to move a line this much in 2 hours..

Steam move like that...would you follow that blind?

Morita hasn't been really that impressive, but it's hard to argue with a move like that.  Anybody have any previous experience or remember the outcome when something like this has happened?

Really curious to see if anyone recalls a huge steam move like this losing...

Thanks

Wouldn't be surprised if she loses...

Books probably steamed that to generate some action on the game

Good thought Coverlane, but it's hard to believe that any book would leave that much exposure on the flip side.  Could see some movement to start steam, but that much?

I also would expect the line to correct itself as money came in on Bratchikova at such good odds, but line keeps steaming up, I'm seeing -365 now...

Considering that Morita was the favorite going in, that I'm already up a boatload from the day, AND THE OPPOSING PLAYER IS RUSSIAN, I'll take a flyer and pull the trigger on Morita.  Interested to see how this one plays out...

Just watch the line correct by 200 points prior to the start of the match, lol

Not sure I could ever lay so much on Morita, IMO it is Bratchikova or nothing...

well this seems really bizarre. Line move from -175 to -450. Now unless you are insane no one is playing -450. The +300 dog rolls to a 6-1 first set. I juyst couldnt see a 6-1 to 6-3 game. 

Even if Morita loses, I will get a great run for my +200...
