finding the right combo

betting too much

trying to get more money to win more money

just betting 1 or 2 for large but still losing...

lines and times are so varied

gut instinct goes awry

greed but less is more

so many choices it's crazy like college football Saturdays.....oh yeah there's 1 college game tonight....

The biggest problem for me is waiting for the West coast games. I always found that the West coast games are easier to cap compared to the East coast games. Teams in the West are more stable and thus more predictable. I usually break even or lose a little on East coast games and than clean up later in the night but the degenerate in me won't stop taking the action even though I could make much more money if I just left the early games alone.

if you left the earlier games alone you say you would make more because of your take of the west coast games.....say you did well on the east coast games would you still feel so confident in the later games?

Ya I would still feel very confident in the later games. Don't mean to sound cocky but I'm usually up by the time all the games have completed. These are my tickets from last night.

I would say less games has it's advantages for money management...but also having more games gives you more options good and bad...

You pretty much hit it on the head but with more options comes more chances at chasing and possibly losing a lot of money. Always set limits on how much your willing to gamble each night.
