Personally I prefer a longer line. A shorter line to me is too much like a Martingale. With a losing streak you are betting a lot more, a lot quicker. Which can stress a bankroll.
I use a 10 digit line, typically 5,5,5,5,5,5,5,5,5,5,
For baseball I will even drop it down to a 2,2,2,2,2,2,2,2,2,2 because of the moneyline being higher.
My goal is to make money long term and steadily so I tend to have low lines with a high bankroll. We all know in gambling streaks happen, you have to be able to weather a 7 game losing streak without going through your bankroll.
I am starting my NFL Labby line today and can't freakin wait!!
Good Luck to everyone!!
