Looking at the home team coming home to play home opener with a win% of zero, I think both teams get to 30. ATS feels like coin toss. Action junkie didn't want to close a teaser with this, so started a new one.

Argos o21 -110
2 Team Teaser (ties push) +600

  1. Argos/Roughriders o58½
  2. OPEN

Ben Gamel has done more clutch stuff in the random games that I've seen him in

06/27 Inside-the-park home run of the day: Ben Gamel rounded the bases in 14.89 seconds, the fastest trip around the bases this season. And he was even sprinting out of the box.

edited as other have commented on price... clearly that was enough to give me pause  - not that I will miss $200, but that seems excessive for what the market usually bears.

Crazy that NJ topped Nevada in sports bets for May...

Not that crazy.  Way more people in and around Jersey, plus I'd think Vegas just doesn't draw the traveling gamblers for May that it would for football season.  When New York and California legalize they'll pass Nevada as well.

Yeah, I'm not paying $200.  He's pretty decent, but he's not THAT good.

I wasn't making a comment on your post, good buddy.  It didn't register that you had a play on that game.  I just saw the news and thought I'd share.

What a bummer.

Not crazy about it, but I'll probably do it. As time gets harder to find, I've signed up for a few DFS analysis sites for articles, projections, etc. to help prep. No regrets.

Yup, easy to justify.  Honestly I'd spend way more because my guess is the information on that site will save me a massive amount of time.

Also early bird special is $180, already saved $20

I signed up because it's a no brainer.

 

He does most of the thinking for me and if you're betting props, $180 is absolutely nothing. Between him and tagliere's article it's really all you need for NFL.

I'm sitting four rows behind D-backs dugout. Drove to Phoenix this morning.

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/D-fVKyAW4AAuBI2.jpg

They gave me a sweet 2019 Impala. It was a beautiful day. Filled up with 18 gallons of $5.00 gas before joining-in as the 3rd leg in a three-man convoy. We were burning 104 mph through the desert - the lead man driving an Audi R8 - and me maxing out the engine in that Impala just trying to keep up with them. Drove it so hard my shoulders began cramping up, and it was probably the most dangerous/fun hour of my life. If you've ever seen those desert vistas. Winding in and out of dry mountain terrain. The road alternated back and forth between 2 and 4 lanes (divided highway) - and we eventually broke up after the road switched down to two lanes for good - but a 4.5-hour drive only ended up taking me three and a half hours.

Feasibly, Tanaka could have been the only starter the Yankees flew overseas. They might have pulled a fast one, no? That's the last thing I'd do is fly all my starters overseas if I didn't need them. Especially with the way teams are super-aware of time zones now - the way east coast teams will fly starters to the west coast a few days before road trips even begin..

Yankees just traveled 7,000 miles. While the Mets finally showed some heart with 5 runs in the 8th Sunday night to avoid a sweep at the hands of the division rival. Mets must've gone down the yellow brick road and seen the wizard and got them some heart. Maybe showing some heart in the division rivalry will spill over into the cross-town rivalry.. maybe Yankees ain't got off the plane yet, too..

Mets +125
Mets -1½ +225

Same angle, except Red Sox may have taken all their starters overseas :lol: because, unlike the Yanks, they used at least two that we know of..

German Marquez 10-2 SU versus AL (avg line -126). But they've only won 4 of his 12 home starts on 5 days rest, where he allowed 41 runs in 65.2 innings.. otherwise I'd have bet Rox..

L3 seasons Diamondbacks O/U after a day off (1st MLB)

that's possibly the best situation in the MLB for an over, Clarke's starts have gone 6-1-1 O/U (6-0-1 when D-Backs score), and this will be consecutive starts for Stripling versus D-Backs

Diamondbacks/Dodgers o9 -105

That CFL this Thursday, Alouettes are making their home debut in their third game of the season. It's kind of an embarassing number of points to be getting for a home team, and it's the same matchup (Tiger Cats) that we cashed those bets with on Friday.. Same two teams. I'm leaning dog. But it's the Alouettes. My least-favorite CFL team to bet on. Tiger Cats had a game on them last time - that was the situation, playing their 3rd game to the Al's 2nd, which gave them the big advantage. But Thursday I think this 12 points is where it's at, unless I thought we'd have a chance at a +16 or better, which we won't. Reduced juice might cost less, but I like the 12 so paid the 10 cents.

Alouettes +12½ -110

Yankees -141
NYY scores first -175
Yankees F5 o2½ -120

Vargas lowest ERA out of the 5 Mets' starters (3.17) but the highest xFIP (5.03). Something impending there. Mets needed eighth-inning rallies to win the L2 games, which was nice, but tonight Yankees get their bearings and get back to business. Red Sox set a good example last night on how to return from a 7,000-mile road trip while the Yankees just kind of laid there. ML is pretty straightforward on price & seems like a fair median regarding YTD, ROS, etc..

I’ve tried two credit cards and a debit card to try deposit money in my bovada account. All declined. 

Does anyone have a recommendation for another one that will take PayPal? Would like to bet this weekend and don’t want to mess with bitcoin (bovada preferred)

An option for you is that Bet Online will take gift cards. Like Visa Vanilla and stuff (check the small print on the packaging to make sure they are specifically allowed to be used for international online purchases). BOL will also charge you a 7.5% processing fee when you choose to deposit via credit card, debit card, or gift card, which is a slap in the face in my opinion. Most importantly though - decline any deposit bonuses they offer you. Chat with someone and decline that #####. The rollover is ridiculous and you'll never reach it before you bust. So if you gotta get down by the weekend, just buy yourself a Vanilla Visa gift card at Walmart with your debit card, use it to deposit and bet this weekend at BOL, and then withdraw via bitcoin and fund a better book, just remember it's a minimum of seven business days from your last deposit prior to requesting a withdrawal though.

Looks like lots of lead changes in that one. Some live betting might've been profitable. I had Rox +0.5 F5 at -170 and it feels like an expensive, ridiculously dumb wager looking back on it now even though it cashed (after a 5-run 5th no less) :rolleyes:

Felt decent about hitting the ML and getting some profit even though it didn't go the way I'd hoped.  Like your Yanks play, took them F5 ml.

Red Sox/Dodgers parlay -101.

MLB Network pimping Vargas' 2.55 ERA over his last several outings without saying anything about his xFIP. I think I like the over in KC. Royals got a ton of hits last night. Mike Clevinger is making his first start of the season on 4 days' rest too. Still putting the pieces together on that one..
