Raw its an odd copy and paste format but I'll try to pick out what I can haha

INTERNET/-1 10/18/2010 4:16:11 PM Ticket 27927391 STRAIGHT BET NFL
[235] TEN TITANS -3-105
30/3
Win
21000/20000
20000

He did a bet on the Titans giving 3 points to the Jags and because the money line was -105 for TN meaning for every 105 you win 100, he put 21,000 on the line to win 20,000. The 30/3 is the final score, at least thats what I think that means and that was the final score of the game.

On another of his bets the 1st one being a hockey one. It was +155 meaning for every 100 you win 155 so thats why he won more than he put down.

confused is me.

I do see a lot of "win" and that's always a good thing
If its -# it means giving points. In the football game TN was -3 meaning they had to win by 4 or more. If it was 3 then it would have been a push and if it would have been 2 or a loss then you lose.

The +# means they're getting points. If he had put money on Jax at +3 they could lose by up to 2 and they got hammered so it wouldn't have mattered.

sometimes a spread will be say 6.5 which is obviously not a whole number and you can't win a game by a half point. What that means is that there can be no push. Its big because say a spread is 7.5 to me thats a big deal because 1 TD is a lot easier to win by than say 2 scores. The 3.5 6.5 are the spreads you have to watch the closest in my book for football. 4.5 eh doesn't do much for me because its not often a FB game ends at 5 or 4..........but lots of games are decided by a field goal or a TD.

Yes and baseball is more confusing.

You have 2options when playing a favorite in baseball you can either lay (risk) the $ line which means your team has to win by 1 run or you can lay the run line which is always -1.5 runs which means your team has to win by 2 runs. This always makes the favorite the dog on the $line... And normally you are supposed to never bet on the home team laying 1.5 runs because the road team always gets 9inning of play while the home team only plays 8 innings if they have the lead. For example if the home team is winning 4-3 in the top 9th and they get out of the inning their is no bottom of the 9th. Tonight we broke the rules as the Yankees had to win.... On the $ line they were -170 meaning to win 100 you had to risk 170 ....we laid the 2runs breaking the rules and Yankees become a 130 dog so now your risking 100 to win 130 but they must win by 2 not 1 here's today's trade.

Tonight we played UNDER 8 runs in the Yankee game and lost as the final score was 7-2. As the yanks scored a solo home run in the 8th. If they game ends 6-2 we TIE and it's a no bet

Agree

I look at it though is 10-7 and 17-14 are prolly some of the more common ones so the half point from a FG and TD are the 2 big ones I feel. I don't do hockey or baseball just football.

I love college football when you get spreads of like 38 points and I always take the dog. Sure you lose a few of them but I'd say my ratio of winning on those big spreads is pretty high. Beating a team by 30+ points in any form of football is hard!!! haha

My worst gambling memory was the Super Bowl with the Pats and Eagles. I don't remember the exact spread but I remember if Rodney Harrison just ran in from 30 yds out and scored I woulda won but he knelt down and I lost my money! Man that year the Pats killed every spread in the playoffs.

Do you guys do the push goes to the house or just everyone keeps their money? I've seen it both ways. I hate when its a push and the house still takes a fee haha

Here I laid 41 points here because the real # should have been 50. This is what my firm does all we care about is is the line on a game correct or skewed and we take advantage of the line maker mistakes

Oh I know there is no such thing as a sure thing and thats why its gambling but I just said my winning % is a lot higher taking the dog in those high spreads.

Are you doing the NBA game totals?

Detroit at 31 I took the under and Miami 65 I took the under. Dallas at 47 I took the over. Lakers are 57 I'm thinking of taking the under because I feel they are going to just kinda coast and be fresh and healthy come playoff time.
