FFA Wagering Thread: THERE HE IS!@!

Recommended Posts

I am on pace for over 6 figures this year, so you do the math on what I am probably up. I reached my yearly goal I set in just 8 weeks.

You're doing it again. I can't imagine anyone cares.Even the post to which you're replying simply asked if you have a job.
Gotta be shtick, no?
Nope, and enough with the shtick fascination, Bender.
Shtick you buddy.

Props I bet at SB:

All 8 qbs first pass complete.

Westy un 3' rec -115 - big

Benson un 18' longest run -115

Sanchez no 1st half td -170

Sanchez un 14' completions -140 - big

Took this one. Jets run D is pretty stout (even better after Kris Jenkins got hurt, go figure).

I have a hundred dollar ticket for Dallas to win the NFC at 19-1A buddy has a hundred dollar ticket for MIN to win the NFC for 9.5 - 1Should I partner with him- giving me $50 on my Dallas ticket in exchange for $50 of his Min action? My heart says no- I am throwing away $500 for peace of mind and my brain says getting a hedge at 3x current value is a value hedge I should go for.

Nah, if they were $500 tickets, maybe. Let it ride.

Is this the spot where the Bengals finally bounce back from the Henry tragedy?

I've stayed away from them since then and I am unsure whether to try and guess if/when they rebound.

Me: So Cowboys straight? Not laying the points huh?

Her: Yes straight. And then left too.

3-team, 7-point teaser ... Pays 1.5 to 1

1. Football - Cincinnati Bengals - spread +4½ (-110) for the entire game held on Jan 9 at 4:30pm [pending]

2. Football - New York Jets/Cincinnati Bengals - total Over 27 (-110) for the entire game held on Jan 9 at 4:30pm [pending]

3. Football - Dallas Cowboys - spread +3½ (-110) for the entire game held on Jan 9 at 8:00pm [pending]

Crossing zero twice... this should be fun. :mellow:

yikes...you went the opposite way that I would have on each one...lol...but as your schtick goes, thats probably a good thing for you

I don't trust Sanchez... AT ALL. I think he pisses all over himself today. And Dallas is playing great football. Philly has not scored a single point in the last six quarters since they lost their center.
I agree with the Sanchez part. Hoping that Cincy D steps up and stops the run today, if they can do that the game is over, no way the Jets win the game if Sanchez has to throw 30 times.

Yup, really weird movement. I would speculate the -2.5 group was in line early because the prev game's line was -3.5 and obv Arizona benched guys when Minnesota won. Then the Boldin news got worse (although the Cromartie-Rodgers news got better later in the week), but he certainly isn't worth 4 points. Then you get a bunch of steam following this big move (and last week's score) and here we are.Should be some nice Card #'s tomorrow.

I would like some input here. I am starting to get ready for the Super Bowl and going to deposit a good chunk to some more online books. After the Super Bowl I will be done gambling until next football season, so you idiots won't have to deal with me anymore. Nonetheless, here's the books I have open. Break down the percentage you would have in each book and/or add in other books I should have. I have not been cut anywhere, so don't worry about that.

Here's what I would go with, but I really want some opinions. Bolded books are already funded with the percentage.

Sportsbook - 25%

Betonline - 17%

SIA - 22%

Matchbook - 10%

Greek - 14%

Bodog - 10%

Let's just say I want to dump another 15k online. :D I don't have anything in Matchbook, Greek, or Bodog yet. Are these the books I should deposit at? Are these percentages off? Should I put more in Bodog? Less in Bodog? Do I open up at Carib?

Now this is where it gets tricky - I don't want to really open at sportsbetting.com. Even though their lines are obviously way off, I would like to save them for next football season. This crazy? Is there a chance they go under by then?

The SB, Betonline, SIA numbers really aren't going anywhere. If anything, I would like to take some out of SIA because I don't know if their Super Bowl props are great and from what I remember Betonline offered some very good ones last year and frankly I ran out of money there.

I do have one local that offers a $500 max on props which is good, but I need to work on getting him to up my credit limit as he only gives me 3k to use. The other local is tapped out for the season, my account is closed. Just got the last 3k form him today, took him for over 10k this football season alone.

This post got very long and I probably take the Super Bowl too serious, but I would really like some input from guys who have multiple accounts. Remember we are really focusing on Super Bowl props.

Greek and bodog are musts for the superbowl. Why aren't you doing bases at matchbook this spring? We can take this to pm if you want.

My heart says no- I am throwing away $500 for peace of mind and my brain says getting a hedge at 3x current value is a value hedge I should go for.

I'd sit tight. Dallas is playing as well as anyone in the NFL right now.
I would partner with him in a hearbeat. Dallas has played well, but i don't know how you can have any confidence in them. Do you really think Wade Phillips, who has never won a playoff game, can have them win 3 in a row, likely with 1 in New Orleans and 1 in Minny. and if you want to really rely on Suisham if the game is close, good luck. as for the game tonight, i will play more in live betting. a little on the Birds for now, and hopefuly the line gets better.
