Time to make some money off the ladies. Will be back with some future thoughts later.

BC/Que over 12.5 (+100) fav play of opening draw, it is now been bet up to -130.

Can/NL over 12.5 (+105) presently at -101

BC at +108, now at -135.

Have slight leans to the PEI/Ont game over. Lots of money coming in on Alberta, I think they opened around -260 and are now at -420.

Great line Ang. I swear you can make a nice profit if you did nothing but bought and sold lines this week, they way the move.

Adding the hometown girl at -2.5. When the Territories lose, they typically lose big, so I have no problem laying this figure.

Any futures? Bet365 has Dacey at +1000. That has value I think.

Yes, caught that one as my longshot. Played Jones +160 but they cap the futures pretty small, from a max bet standpoint.

Well with the movement in AB/NWT, someone lost a tonne. Bookies really overrating Nedohin. Must be the name...

Yeah, all these sites are hit and miss. Pinnacle will usually miss a draw or two...can't believe they already missed one.

The Greek had lines for this draw.

CL, by far my most profitable sport. Had a real good 2010, especially with it in the Olympics. I did okay in the Scotties last year, had a great run in the Brier, but gave a good chunk of it back in the Worlds which I hope to avoid this year.

After Day 1, my thoughts are this is not an overly strong field and as such will be very careful (Jen Jones aside) of laying any big spreads this week. I suspect there could be some good dog plays during the week.

Morning Draw will be playing my automatic over of Quebec and also will take the MB/PEI game under and Nfl/Sask under. Always prefer the unders morning draws. I think MB blows them out and so there could be an early shake and if the first game is any indication NFL calls a game like a bunch of chickens.

For lines, I will take Jen at -2.5 and NS at -1.5, which I no the latter contradicts my earlier statement. I just see it being a long day for NWT yesterday catching up with them today and Smith-Dacey bouncing back after missing that shot last night.

I have NB in an upset over Quebec. 

Boring 1st end, looks like a blank.

I agree with this 100%. The play so far has been almost mediocre at best, I'm wondering if it would be profitable to just take the dog on all four sheets every set of games. Even Manitoba right now is tied at the end of 5.

Tough tournament so far, no doubt. But I absolutely pounded MB this afternoon vs. AB and also Canada tonight against AB. Can't believe AB is a favorite against Holland.

For those on MB -2.5 this morning, I think you got screwed. That was definitely Jones' last shot so somebody had to score and I think MB was shot. But they didn't put up any points for that end...

I'm with you on Manitoba over Alberta. TV Game. Yayyyyy.

Any leans on the BC/Ont game tonight? It's the TV game, I am thinking the dog in Ontario.

I don't really trust Horgan's team very much. They are young and inexperienced...probably should have lost to PEI last night and certainly should not have won Ontario.

BC for me.

Horgan is better looking then Kelly Scott tho. 

That's how I have been picking. That's how I picked the NB upset over Larouchue, lol

Ang, I was thinking the same thing. From the TV screen it looked like Jones was shot to cover the 2.5 but then they now show the score she won by one, which means someone gave PEI the last point. I am trying to figure out how she shot 12% points better than Dolan and won by one. Tough beat, as I was sure she was shot.

Well, perhaps my time of playing unders has come to a close. Not trying to overreact to the first few draws, but there has been some pretty spotty play so far, which should keep games close and rocks in play. Both the Mb/Alb and Ont/NS game should go over but I wouldn't be surprised if the other two do also. For the evening draw I think 3 of the 4 are very poised for overs, leaving BC/Ont out of the mix.

Based on Larouches performance this morning having PEI at +190 tonight, is very tempting.

For sides on Canada, Mb and Sask for a dog.
