I think InVegas makes a point but doesn't fully carry it out.

Bentely's thread heading says 5* play.  If it is a 5* play, the line should be so far off that you do not need to buy anything and especially not buying a full point like getting from 2.5 to 3.5 at -140 does.  

I can see buying points when you are down in your 1/2 * games and I can sort of see having a 2-3 star game and buying .5 but not buying a full point and rating it a 5* game.

SteelHop I understand what your saying. When I post my plays, in theory you shouldn't have to do anything to anyone's play when it has a high rating. But we don't play with theories, we play with money. So any extra I can get is personally worth it to me. 
And I don't post one thing and play another. So when I do that, it's so when I come back later and say I won, you'll know what I was playing. But GL no matter who you take!

SteelHop I guess we'll see!

Congrats to all the W Kentucky Backers!

Troy just killed us in the 2nd half with penalties. Well we'll have to make them pay on Saturday.

Hopefully we can pull out the teaser and at least split on the day.

Hate I didnt see this earlier I would have agreed with the few who said u should go to +3.5 -140, makes no sense, you dont take college dogs that low unless you think they have a good chance of winning and in that case you certainly wouldnt buy up and pay more juice.

You should NEVER BUY POINTS to go above or below a KEY #... Only BUY POINTS to land ON a KEY #.. To 3 or 7.. it will come back to bite you in the behind in the longrun..

jtoler/tinoker55 I've been doing that for years with success.

We all have different strategies and that's one of mine. It's worked well for me so I keep doing it.

But good luck in whatever it is that you do.
