Here's advice for ya. If that Toledo-Western Michigan game was on saturday would you bet it?
another thing mikey in 2010 i was looking at the lines and saw kansas state was a 3 pt fave vs kansas. I couldn't believe it. I bet them big with the line and ML and won a ton. Since then i've won a ton of kansas state bets. On the contrary USC screws me all the time. 2nd piece of advice anytime i take a side in a usc game bet the other side. I'm not joking i've won1 usc bet in 3 years
basically mikey you can follow whoever you want but to me you can't blindly tail someone. Example lets say you like Navy week 1 and i say i like ND that doesn't mean you discount your opinion. Always go with your gut. Have fun ask questions win. welcome to covers. BTW usually on those crappy weekday games i was talking about we have in game threads. Join in my man. I've never had more fun than in those threads
That makes a lot of sense. It's hard not to bet teams like USC because they get so much coverage, so you get a false sense of security that you "know" the team. If that Toledo-Western Michigan game was on saturday would you bet it?
Answer: probably not...again for me it's hard to bet a team that I haven't seen play.
I do normally play my gut, but getting opinions from others or reading how they think about a game can influence me. With college football especially, I played my gut feeling a lot, which is how I shot up to $5k.
NFL seems so easy to bet, but it screwed me over many times last season!!
