Also for the peeps whining about lines and questioning my integrity... Get a book that provides reduced lines (eg 5dimes). More often than not the lines are 5pts lower (eg Astros today on RL are +105 through reduced lines but +100 on the main board). Reduced juice on the ML are typically only an option the night before, so I post MLs the night before - sometimes in the previous thread if I have wagers out still - bc of reduced juice and also when I expect the line to move.

If you're betting favorites and use bovada, then get a new book!

Or find a local option as well... Having multiple books is imperative for shopping

Bol bob. True story about shopping. Savin 5 cents on MLB basically kills the vig. Imagine if you could shop stocks and get a 5% off. That part of this market always tripped me out

Ignore the ignorant BoB. They never learn. I watch odds as closely as anyone, for my own purposes and I haven't seen anything wrong with yours. The idiots get home from work the next day and fire up their computers and see the odds one hour before game time, and think yours should match.

Not that you could comprehend, and those that do should cut BoB a little slack. It is not his fault they can't hit the books at prime time.

What?
It was literally a straight up question - do you have a job?
What's with the twisted convoluted response

Maybe its because of your history of posts. Quite frankly I took what you asked as rather insulting

Ditto. Years of negativity insults and total inability to engage on any intelligent level. We all know who the good ones are on here, and it does NOT have to correlate with a winning record (though that does help!)

BoB,

Question for you. Do you ever play the double result (win 1st 5 and game)? I can get Houston at +105 and not have to worry about them winning by 2. Or do you feel there is a greater risk in them not winning the 1st 5? And this applies to any game as I can get the Dodgers at -115.

Pardon me. I don't know where you found that line because even the 5 inning run line is negative juice. If you actually can get +105 you are nuts not to take it. BOL.

I didn't mean to hijack BoB's thread, but he did say he was traveling and working today, so I figure he won't be able to get back to the guy and I am 99.99% sure he would agree with me.

While I would normally agree with you, me being a mod I think it perfect for me to let him know my thoughts

Twisted minds comprehend words in a twisted manner.
Nothing wrong with what's written in text. It's up to the reader.

The biggest issue is that is the way (most likely) that you view all of your posts

That is true.
I don't deny it.
I never said I have a sane mind.
But most here don't. 99% of us here are degenerate gamblers - which is a mental disease.

BoB sorry for polluting your thread.
Signing out.
Peace
