Thanks everyone.

Going to use that money to grab some more Bitcoin ATM's.

Definitely feels nice to hit a lottery ticket like that.

Really need to hit these free throws.

Tried to hedge with SD St +325 live, but could only get it for $1000. Book was too slow accepting the live wagers.

Washington St finally starts scoring again, but they let SD St hit 4 straight shots.

Down 5 with 7 minutes left. Let's hope Washington St heats up from downtown. I have no doubt they can score enough, question is can they get enough stops.

Unbelievably nerve wracking.

Thanks gents 

It's actually weird, I've been hot lately, but I've also taken quite a few bad beats.

Numerous times had NHL puck lines, team up 3 goals with 10 minutes to play only to win by one; giving up late goals and failing to score an empty netter. From yesterday to today I lost 4 straight NCAAB and NCAAF wagers by 1 or 0.5 point.

Even when making +EV plays, crazy things tend to happen, but they usually do even out in the long run.

Hopefully I can pull this one out. It definitely wouldn't hurt.

My betting accounts are based in USD, but I'm Canadian, so it's worth more.

I need Washington St ML for a $45,000 hit.

Wouldn't be a bad hit.

Good luck to everyone (unless of course you're on SD St)

Been rolling nicely lately so decided to do one of my, who gives a shit shoot for the moon underdog ML parlay.

Texas A&M +160
Portland St +245
Washington St +440

I have another one that includes Missouri, but it looks like they choked it away at the end.

On a weekly basis, in both college and the NFL, I see offensive coordinators often overthinking things, which often leads to beating yourself.

Another perfect example in the noon games (Yes, I have Maryland -14 1st Half, but that's beyond the point.)

Maryland comes out runs the ball three straight times for 23 yards and two first downs. So, what does the offensive coordinator decide to do? Drop back and pass on first down. What happens? QB sacked for a loss of 10 yards. 2nd down another pass play for about 8 yards. 3rd down pass play ends with a pick 6.

Why? Why would you even think of passing there on first down? You just averaged almost 8 yards per carry on the first three plays.

This has nothing to do with the fact I wagered on Maryland first half, I don't get overly emotional from one wager to another, it's about the inability to keep things simple. What harm is there in running the ball until you get stuffed?

Gamblers often talk about pressing when you're hot, riding the wave, riding streaks, etc. So, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

On another note good luck on your plays this week.

It was an example off the top of my head.

Point being, there can still be value in situations such as the one we have tonight.

Is this true in every situation? No, it's not true in most situations, but there are spots where there is value.

You're acting as if I'm saying this is a solid play to make on a daily basis, it's not, I rarely do it myself, but to act as if it NEVER makes sense is ignorant.

Regardless, this is a great game to watch.

But please elaborate 


So what you're assuming is that once a line moves, value is gone.

Flawed. So flawed I'm not sure what to say.

Donald Trump was available at 300-1, even higher.

Then 150-1.

Then 75-1.

Then 40-1.

Then 25-1.

Then 15-1.

Then 10-1.

Then 5-2.

Then on the day of the election he became the favourite.

So, by your line of thinking, value was gone when he dropped to 150-1.

Just try to see where your line of thinking is flawed.

No value. None. Don't do it. 

Your line of thinking here is so unbelievably skewed I'm not even sure what to say

Updated Card:

Syracuse +24 (-110)
Syracuse 2nd H ML (+447) 0.5u

Clemson's defence is gassed. They were on the field for about 12 minutes in the second quarter alone. Syracuse QB banged up a bit but still seems fully capable of slinging it around. Might not have to scramble so much in the second half, I don't care how good this Clemson front four is, when you're gassed, skill becomes irrelevant.

Great number.

I've got Cuse +24 for the one unit play.

Sprinkled a nickle on the ML. Unfortunately I didn't quite snag quite +1400.

Based on what exactly?

I'm serious. I would love to hear an opposing view right now. Seems everyone on Clemson has nothing more to say than, Syracuse won't score or Clemson beat Louisville by 26 on the road so they must do it here.

Clemson has absolutely no interest in covering this spread. Their offence has looked lackluster and conservative all year, not sure why that would change here.

Starting QB banged up, defence banged up. IF Clemson is covering the spread at any point in the second half, it's pretty much a guarantee the starters are coming out. The Cuse wideouts will have a field day against Clemson's back ups.

Why not?

Wake Forest managed to score 14 points in the final 10 minutes, on the road, with their back up QB against Clemson's back ups for a final score of 28-14.

IF Clemson ever gets to the point that they're covering the spread in the second half, starters are coming out, and the back door will be left wide open.

Clemson better put up 42+ while the starters are in, and they haven't really been lighting up the scoreboard against anyone this year.

This is a different Clemson offence this year, the casual fan just doesn't seem to understand that.

Syracuse +24 -110 (11 units) 
Clemson-Syracuse over 58.5 -110 (8.8 units) 
Syracuse over 17 -115 (9.2 units) 


Couldn't be happier to see you on Cuse tonight.

I gave a detailed write up on the intangibles regarding this match up and why I'm so high on Cuse.
