Ok let me break it down for you....

Risking 110 to win 100 Celtics +6.5 for the game
Risking 110 to win 100 Miami -1 (2nd half they were up 8 so you need the Heat to win by 10 to win your 2nd half bet)

You risked 220 on those two bets, your best outcome was losing 10 bucks. If the game landed on the heat winning by 7 or 8 you would lose both bets. Not real hard to understand if you were really betting the games.

Like I said before somebody risking real money would understand that this is not very smart. You never bail out of a game when there is a possible middle. You take the loss and move on.

Its ok, I understand that I may be talking about things you never thought about because I can clearly see you have no idea what you are doing.

Ok, so they are up 8 at the half. I know my team (celts) and I know they foul at the end and more importantly that if it gets down under double digits both Lebron and Wade will be in the game until the end.

Celts are not a team to drop 110 on an opponent, and the flow of the game severely favored a high scoring game with the Heat battling down the stretch.

I already conceded the loss of Celts +7 even though I only needed one bucket to cover.

So I said ok, if I can get a bucket either way.....Celts are +2 then it is 1-1 or the Heat or +2 for the half then I am 1-1.

Of all the billion of final scores.....+2 for one of the sides was 50-50. If I didn't bet the half Miami play I am 1-1, hitting the total and the game play. I knew I could not be 2-0 and would very happy to just pay the vig on one play. Which is exactly what happened. Coupled with the fact that I won the over for the game (needed less than 70 pts in the 2nd half) I figured I was 1-1 already on the game and total. Took a chance that they would continue to score and get the key runs and foul shots at the end (they did) and I had a gut feeling the Heat would win by 10+.

I do nothing I am 1-1 now that we know the final. I thought I was going to loss more than I won (figured it was 40/60 against me the celts cover) and figured the MINUTE middling number that it could land on was worth the risk of a near guarantee split.

Did the same sunday night, I needed 21.5 points for my teasers to hit on the broncos over in the 2nd half and took the under 28.5 at the half and hedged all 4 teasers and then some. Made out huge when it middled at 24 pts and won all 5 plays huge.

He is full of it, over and under came out at 92.5 and lakers were -6.5.


Both went up. Lakers went off at -7 even money and total 94.

Check Scoresandodds.com and you can see the opening lines and movement.

Here are the lines from 30 different online books...not one has the Lakers -7.5 or 92.

you have to use the arrow at the top to scroll through the different books.

I know we have been over this before in the football, let's bring this up here.

I bet locally. I get an email of all games/totals with first half and 2nd half lines sent to me. If i send them back in a timely fashion (guy is actually ridiculously lenient) then I get the play in. The line never changes for me and I lay 5 to 5.5 on every line no matter if X has it for -130 for whatever.

I do know what you are saying, and some times I take advantage of the line movement, other times I scratch my head on where he got the line from.

However, I am relieved that you have the time to audit everyone here and are on the case, sherlock holmes. Keep up the due diligence.

So you have a guy sending you emails at halftimes of every single game in nba, NCAA, and NFL? I find this hard to believe because halftime lines don't come out until halftime of the game so there would be no way to get you the lines before the half. So I assume on a Saturday in college football you would have 30-40 emails of just halftime lines? You can't make up half lines until you see the score at half. Makes no sense at all.

13 for 28 FT does not help this over any going into the 4th.

I am not auditing everyone here, just you. I see what you did on the football thread and I think you are completely full of sh!t. 40x my normal play blah. Nobody bets 40x the normal play. Like I said before if I have time I will keep posting stuff that proves you full of it.

On saturday? Probably closer to 100 (the distribution list is huge I hear). I can only imagine how much $ this guy makes, though he is always around which must suck, he is an older gentleman.
I get the half email within 5-10 mins.

You obviously have more time than money, a luxury I wish I had.

Yeah, ok buddy. You sit home on the weekends posting fake bets all weekend long. You bet almost every halftime of every single game all weekend. So who has more time? And as far as money goes if I bet 40x my normal it would be 20k. Do the math. I understand that you might be a little pissed that somebody is raining on your posting party in the gambling threads but a lot of these people might be actually betting real money and might fall for your nonsense.

First of all, it that was true this guy would be getting killed with sharp money and middles. 2nd half line move fast and if he was any kind of legit bookie he would just get a pay per head service and give people accounts. Basically pay for an offshore company to take the action over the Internet.

I am sure all his clients want 100 emails on a Saturday and the guy isn't worried about those emails getting in the wrong hands.

On saturday I am in class all day and right now I am writing a paper. I am glued to this thing, what is your excuse? I am not upset at all, you are entitled to your opinion, no matter how skewed and fabricated it may be.

You have it all figured out, might as well do it yourself and undercut him since it is so easy

Why would you have to jump on it right away if the guy is just sending emails?

So this bookie has to check emails and time stamps to make sure all bets are in before the start of the second half? Do you get a confirmation from him that he receives your bet? Why not wait until a 2nd half kickoff is returned for a TD and then bet 10k over? Just the email was lost in Internet space for a few minutes.

Line history

I am sure it isn't legit in your world.
