I hope you are right. Ideally there just is no letdown game. Maybe with that defense there just won't be one. I just don't want it to be against a division opponent in Nebraska.
Minnesota -8 vs UNLV is a tempting bet. Minny seems a little undervalued by the general public- they really aren't THAT bad since the 2nd half of the 2011 season. UNLV is also total garbage. I dislike straight bets, but I might put a little bit on that.
Betting the White Sox every night has been like taking candy from a baby. Cha-ching.
Good call...i need to start betting them. They just win.
I ended up going small on the over in Milwaukee. Just need one more run and it is only the 5th.
Went small on Boston -135 too ... that is looking good.
Trying to figure out TB-LAA game (to make it interesting to watch), but can't.
Might go really small on TB.
Huge line tomorrow BAL +255 or DET -275. Hard to ever take a -275, but I'm not digging BAL either ... Tommy Hunter is turible.
I laid off on TB, tough game to figure out. TB off the perfect game and face Weaver tomorrow. LAA got yelled at Sunday and seem to have righted the ship.
Tigs game is too high...maybe a RL bet at -125.
Agreed, I was surprised to see -275. The O's are playing good baseball. If anything I wanted to jump on the other side, but then I'm staring at Tommy fricken Hunter. The RL might be the play (I see -130).
Yeah, Rays up 1-0.

Nice job on the Rays. I was glad the Brewers came through.
Tigers are up to -290 on Bookmaker, RL is -1.5 at -130. That is crazy.
I normally prefer to bet series with the Tigers since you never know when they will implode defensively and lose a game. Series bet tends to even it out. Having said that, the series is -260. For entertainment purposes I might consider that, but ridiculous juice.
Balt throws a rook tomorrow against Porcello. Porcello has a 4.50 ERA against Balt. Had a decent start late last year against them went 7 IP 3 ER.
I love Fister going on Sunday. He has been the man. They have Wei-Yin Chen, who went 6 IP against us earlier this year and gave up 2 hits and 1 ER. This is the type of pitcher who gives us fits. I probably wouldn't bet the series at -260 knowing there is a pitcher at the back end who will probably shut us down. May have to consider an under play in that game.
TOR TTR over 3 1/2
CLE TTR over 3
Nice, I'll track em. I didn't see much I liked. Thought about Tigers first to score at -145.
Miggy says you should have taken it.
I took Det RL
Lol, yeah he did. I'll track those too. Its funny i have a good track record in this thread of almost bets.
I'm going oppo and small timing TB on the ML. The number (+150) just got too high. I think LAA will win, but that is just too high.
Bonus ... got it at +151
Valverde (since that was the big bet for tonight - twice the other three combined)
I'm shocked that Yu held TOR to 3 ... my 2nd biggest bet.
(And I'll gladly donate for a Royals win)
How the hell do I get money easily onto bookmaker -_-
I just used my debit card, had zero problems at all.
If you have a visa that is all you need with Bookmaker. No extra charges, etc. as others have stated.
Also for those newcomers to sports betting, do not use Bovada! This is a shop that continuously has the worst lines that come out far later than the bigger books, and have most recently come under scrutiny for payouts.
For serious players, play and intermix between 5dimes, Bookmaker, etc. and shop for the best lines, it DOES make a difference.
How can you tell people to shop for the best lines while also telling them that the lines at Bovada are bad? Do you only bet favorites?
Bovada used to be called Bodog, as in "bet on dogs". They're bad for betting favorites, but great for betting dogs.
With Bookmaker, it is my bank that dings me with a foreign exchange fee.
I agree on Bovada on the late lines. I was getting frustrated by the late lines and them shading lines. I think they have always had some issues with timeliness of payout, but they do payout.
I like the selection at 5 Dimes.
The thing I think he is talking about is they won't let themselves get burned. They do not put up most college basketball totals and sometimes do not put out game lines until 3 or 4 if at all. It is hard enough to win.
My last straw was when my buddy logged into his account and he had different lines available for betting MNF. It was half a point but still. I still mention Bovada as a source because they are a functioning sportsbook and you will get paid. In hindsight, I should brought up 5 dimes more, I just have no experience with them.
Also, Bovada is great on dogs because that is where a lot of casual bettors go, and they tend to bet the favorites. Which is why I may use them for my Nebraska bet.
Had a good day yesterday - today;
QQQQQQQ...Could anybody help me out getting some money onto my bookmaker account? I only have mastercards, so I went out to buy a visa gift debit card, but it's US only because I'm an idiot and didn't read. All I want is this damn $100 on my effing account.
TB seems to have LAA's number right now. They just pounded Weaver last night, won 4 or 5 in a row this year against them.
Hate to break it to you, but there are many places you can shop lines at without having to use terrible shops such as Bovada.
Bodog reminds me of Jr. High, and its funny as it seems only novice bettors play there, until they learn that much bigger and better things are out there.
