been recently betting a few ingame second half lines, ive been better on purely if i think a team will cover that line or not. does anyone think its better to add the first half result with that line  and look at it that way?
 example  dallas 50
               okc 57   

halftime line was okc-1.5
sounds like an easy win for okc
 but if you look at the whole game total at that point  okc would have to win by 9, which at that time my thoguht pattern would  be dallas as an easy cover !
 I was looking for any suggestins on how others approach this?

Yes, you HAVE to look at the original line for the game or the original O/U when making up your mind on 2hlf. Cappers in Vegas are usually in the ballpark of the line they set, spread or over under. Keep that in mind next time you look at 2 hlfs.

Exactly, you got it right.  Using this method can give you tremendous value over the orginal game line.
