Option C of risking 273 to make 60 and lose! we are talking about a $200 difference between  Option B and losing Option C. It is too bad you viewed this is a can't lose bet, but at least you learned you can lose for the future.

Please explain to me how fading every single -455 bet wouldn't make you money in the long run according to your logic. For arguments sake...

Lets say there are 100 bets over the course of a season at -455.

One guy is taking every single -455.

One guy is taking every single +445. (approx price of an exchange)

One has to be in the red, and one has to be in the black. You are pretty much saying the +445 guy HAS to be the one turning a profit with your logic.

I understand you are taking the idea of "picking sports." Trust me, I do. But under the scenario I presented, there is a winner and there is a loser. Clearly you must think the winner is the +445 player.

And there lies the point I was trying to make. All you +445 players should be rich.


You are absolutely correct theoretically here rangerz, but what's the chance that a US player is gonna have access to anywhere near +445? I think you'd be looking at, what, +315 for OAK RRL today? I have no idea, just guessing. That changes the equation. The actual book backing the bet, however, gets +455, not +445. That's why you lay that type of juice and books will roll out the red carpet for you to play with them.

WHY the hell aren't you fading this guy and racking it up? For every -400 he posts, you have a great opportunity to fade em and be up in the long term. Just seems silly to knock a guy for betting a certain way, and NOT fading him. Not defending the guy whatsoever, but I can guarantee 99.9999% of the guys in this thread who talked garbage, did not bet the other side.

Seems pointless to me.

 

How's that pointless?? Except for a few, most just are trying to tell  the OP that it's NEVER a good idea to lay -455 on a baseball game regardless what it looks on paper.

Your saying every -445 favourite at +1.5 the underdog will be +445. It doesnt work that way and your theory is wrong

That's the point I was trying to make. Sometimes it's not about making money or cashing in on someone's detriment, it's about pointing out the fault in their logic so they can know what they are doing is wrong.

Very true Kap, unlikely but I'm strictly talking from the perspective of having the resources to be able to do something like this. As you know, I'm absolutely NOT defending the -455 side, but at the same time those with access to an exchange (the type of guy who bets enough to make it count) should be able to turn quite the profit by simply fading every single big line, according to some.

No I did not, I accounted for the difference in juice and explained what you would need to make it happen. I'm not talking bogus high juice books that 99% of us use. (including me) I'm talking those with access to exchanges.

So my question is since your sticking with your strategy...what is your next bet going to be, as in how much are you going to risk. because we know it will be -400 or higher...so?

I will say, ANYONE who is dumb enough to take the bogus prices the books offer on these RRL's is going to get murdered. There is absolutely no way around it.

But strictly speaking from a possible perspective of closing the gap, even to a -420, +400 type range....

I would be very curious to see the results over the long term.

I will probably go to win 125 to $150 on my next 2 bets (because I am going to listen to some of you here) .....not straight martingale....when your betting big favorites in baseball....something similar to OSCARS GRIND is the way to go

But 10-1  +5.5 units is alot easier my friend.

One slight problem, the people with access to exchanges are tend to be a bit more advance and I doubt in this particular case, anywhere close to +445 would be accepted.

So your going to risk 600 to win 150 which is you lose your down money...

cmon dude, use the 5.5 units ur up and bet 0.5 units on solid dogs or even money games. example tonight you could get bosox at a small fav barely laying any juice...bet 50$ on that and you win 50....
i dont think you understand that

I would still be up money if I lost $600 on my next game....if I lost 3 or 4 in a row, then won 2 or three in a row....i would be right back up to 10 games in the positive.

That's exactly what's wrong with your thinking. It's of course a HUGH difference between -500 or -110.

You keep going back to the well -- you have won 10 in a row. I didn't know which games you had bet on but I assumed they were all high chalk. Did you even calculate how much you would have won had you bet the -1.5 or simply the ML? 1 game today cost you almost half and you still fail to see it??

WTF?!?!?!? If you lost 3 or 4 in a row the way you bet, YOU'RE DONE. Don't you understand that?? Yeah for normal bettors, that way of thinking is cool, but you're not a flat bettor. You're a fool that bets -455 RRL Favs.

And how much would you need to win in those next 2 or 3 in a row to be up 10 games? $2500 to win $500???
