Sucks to see you go bud  I don't play much, if any, baseball, but I do miss the discussions in the NBA forum. You're a solid guy, and I'm sure you'll be successful in whatever you decide to do

escort, you sound so much like me it is ridiculous.  I am working on my Finance degree, and would like to do some financial planning myself eventually.  I have supported myself for 3 years on playing poker, and to a lesser extent a little bit of sports betting.  I will say that sports betting is a lot more stressful than playing poker, and we both know playing poker is extremely stressful, so that's really saying something.

I was wondering if you could elaborate a little bit on how you use SI to glean a bit of info on the games.  I began using SI a bit during the NCAA tourney, and found it to be a useful tool.

Sad to see you go, but hope you're still around plenty as I love reading your writeups.  Good luck in whatever you do.

i haven't posted or played in quite some time now.  but when i did either, baseball was always my favorite, if not my best.  you and i established a very nice repoir.  we often liked the same games and strategies.  you taught me a lot.  i appreciate the was with some very good company.  thanks for remembering me.
i gave playing & posting up for all of the same reasons.  believe me it was tough but my life is so much better without this.  i think the only right way to do this is full time..or close to it.  it consumes you and effects your relationships with everyone around you and a lot of other things that are more important, at least to me. 
this is only my view.  i know there are so many successful players in this forum that can pull it off.  i just wasn't one of them.  i'm an all or nothing guy.  i wish you the best in whatever you decide to do in the future.  putting the same commitment, thought and intelligence that you contributed here will make being successful a lot easier.  take care of yourself.  i'm sure i'll see you in here again one of these days.  all the best, my friend.

Thanks to all for the kind words going forward... I didn't want this to turn into a drama filled thread but I guess it kind of has..

Lets discuss Sports insights a little bit

1.) SI is a tool, it does not tell you who is going to win the game... The public wins. Just because 80% is on one side does not mean the 20% side is going to win!

2.) Look at the smart money angle.... If a team starts of as a        +140 underdog and quickly drops to +130/+125 sharp money has hit the underdog.  People on here can dispute the relevance of sharps, but they do exist.. They are the customers that books allow to bet at the lines as soon/or before they release lines to the public...

3.) Do not get caught in the steam.... Lines are sometimes artificially inflated so the big dolllars can by back for double (or more) before gametime... If you see a cubs/Yankees/Red sox line inflate like crazy, it is probably a steam move... Sharps rarely (if ever) are laying moderate to big chalk... If one of these lines moves from -120 to -140 be very wary of a buy back... You might see a huge drop back to the low -120's before gametime... These steam moves and buy backs usually happen in primetime events...

4.) If there is falling out in the price before game time, most likely it is sharp money... I am a firm believer that books take positions on games... Square money is not moving lines... Of course books would love to have an arbitrage and have 50-50 action but that is not realistic... That is why they let sharps bet lines early for small dollar ammounts... 

5.) Learn to how the money flows.... Yankees/cubs/Red sox are almost always overpriced.... Orioles/D-rays/Kansas city/and washington will almost always be underpriced... Markets tend to correct themselves when baseball becomes the only game in town...

6.) learn money flow on your own... The above statements are tools that I have used in the past... This season I have a strong feeling that the Orioles will be the most undervalued team in the bigs... The Cubs and Red sox will probably be the most overvalued... However, each individual should chart money flow on a daily basis... Maybe you will find teams that are constantly overpriced (best guess Tigers)... Maybe you will find teams that are constantly underpriced ( good guess Pirates/cincy)...

I have had a few coctails so this should be a good base line... If I could elaborate more in depth I should be around for a little bit as I have a genuine passion to help others... Eventually this thread will die, but as long as I am around I don't mind to help...

go figure I don't play and would have cashed 7.35 units, maybe a little less for the non aggressive biders...

Don't care to toot my own horn, but I am just trying to show that through solid research and money management there is money to be made, especilally in the first two months of the season....

Best of luck to all!
