What's yours?

In soccer you can bet if both teams score? That's hilarious, I do like soccer, but that feeds a certain narative. Instead of over/under, can Wolves even score in the game

also, you have MSU as a -29 favorite to beat MSU up there big guy, maybe thats CMU or something

This is beyond incorrect.  Betting mlb money line dogs is where sharps murder sports books.   It’s the only real value when making a straight wager.  Creating value with exotics never wins in the long term.  With so many games during the season, there’s tremendous value in fading a Kershaw, Kluber, or any Yankees pitcher.  At any point during the season, you’re going to have to lay a minimum of 2-1 for one of these starters.  If you hit at around a 30% clip, you’re usually positive.   During the dog days, there’s incredible money to be had.   The last two season, there was a period from july thru the beginning of September in which the yanks and stros were below .500 yet were favored in games by >-200 every time.  On the flip side, during that same period, the Rays and A’s could be had for >+150 nearly every night.  Those teams won at close to a combined .700.  Big money available but baseball is monotonous and boring and usually ignored by non sharps.

Syracyse at Clemson- Noon:  Syracuse +25 - Take 'Cuse

Oklahoma St at Kansas Noon:   Oklahoma St -17 - Take Gundy, they'll massacre them

Old Dominion at East Carolina  3:30pm:  East Carolina -7 - Take ECU, ODU riding high bites them

Nevada at Air Force- 4pm:  Air Force -5 - Hoo boy, I lean towards Nevada here

Florida at Mississippi St: 6pm  Mississippi St -7  - Mississippi St rocks UF's world by 3 TDs

Hawaii at San Jose St  7pm San Jose St +10  - San Jose St. at home, sure, they'll keep it under

USC at Arizona  10:30pm Over 59  - Actually would go Under here

Really like that Oklahoma St. vs Kansas game

Some games that caught my eye

West Virginia at Texas Tech under 75

Southern Miss at Auburn: Southern Miss +27

After last week...

Eastern Mich +13.5, Colts +6.5 and took Lions M/L (I have a pic to prove it) winning, I'm a little hesitant for some reason.  I parlayed those 3 games too, btw.  Really good week.  Steelers too. 

So far, all I have is Michigan -13.  I left Vegas yesterday and it was -15.  Money must be pouring in on UM to move over hard number.

I believe you, nice job.  I definitely didn't see Eastern Michigan going out west and almost winning that last week and very dumb bet the over (almost got lucky with it going into OT but still lost)


Michigan's value , at least from some of the major handicappers, was right went it opened around -9 and now the line is over 2 TDs... we'll see.  Seems to have been a while before Michigan has won big on the road, but I like how we match up against Northwestern.  Would be awesome to see it like the 2015 match-up where we just dominate from start to finish

OSU is not going to win. Haskins will get his numbers but the receivers drop passes in big matchups and I don’t think they will run as much as they need to  to make themselves two dimensional. I think Sandusky state by 6. We should win by three scores. Northwestern isn’t going to be able to hang in past halftime and I think we go in to the third up by a touchdown.

I hate Ohio but money is money and I want them to be 11-0 when we play and honestly I think they are going to smoke penn state. 

I pounced on 3.5 

i teased Ohio and the over 


I teased Stanford and the over 


I am probably going to bet Purdue if the line moves a bit






September 29th, 2018 at 8:42 AM ^

Ohio State -3.5 (-105) @ Penn ST

Michigan @ Northwestern +14.5 (-110) (only to hedge my bets/rooting interests)

Florida ST @ Louisville +7 (-120) 

Purdue -3.5 (-105) @ Nebraska

Indiana -16.5 (-110) @ Rutger

Syracuse +25 (-110) @ Clemson Tigers

I typically only bet on things I know well (I.e. the Big Ten). I’m wary of the Hawaii line because every time the hive mind thinks it’s free money, it’s not. I’m going to go with the “Vegas knows something” and stay away from that lind.
