I really wish I knew what to tell ya - I've only used my debit card on here and it has always worked. You could try live chatting with the site.
You could also consider 5 dimes....they seem to have a Visa option as well.
I know - I took the Rays ML the last two nights. :)
Yep. I believe Betonline does as well.
Not looking good. :(
There is still time....hopefully they score some more
I didn't think Lester had a game like this in him this year.
Need the Angels to avoid a loss today (but that is looking good so far).
I hope the Angels finish strong. I'm thinking to play Tiger's under first 5 tomorrow. 5 would be a gift but i will guess it is 4.5.
My second posted play will be Tigers-O's under 4.5 @-120 on Bookmaker for the full first 5 innings played.
Fister and Chen have both been hot their last few starts. The umpire is good on unders going 10-5-2 in his last 17 games behind the plate. Tigers were shut down by Chen to the tune of 6 innings 2 hits 1 run about a month ago. Only fear there is the Tigers have seem him before and that can be an advantage. I would of preferred the Tigers win last night for this bet. This is my own pick and not a tail. Tail at your own risk.

Wow, this team couldn't hit shit yesterday.
Good call nostradumass lol
Who offers lines favoring the underdog bettor that are as good as or better than Bovada's?
I have not used that chopshop in years so I could not tell you where 'their' lines as a whole stand anymore, honestly. I use 'their' generously, as Bovada is notorious for waiting for the line to originate elsewhere, then posts their lines far later after price action, sometimes not posting lines even until just hours before the game.
As someone mentioned earlier, Bovada is a haven to rookie bettors, and thus you are probably correct in that there are good dog lines since most rookies will be square bettors predominately.
You will still find just as good dog lines elsewhere with more full-service books, though. I should easily be able to look at secondary sources like Covers, ScoresandOdds, BTB, etc, that compare lines from different shops, but they do not even cite that book as a reputable source anymore.
From my brief review, lets look at probably the most reputable offshore book 5dimes, that offers a shit ton more lines, games, etc. than Bovada could even think about period, and compare some of their MLB underdog lines today in comparison to BV:
1. Orioles 5D: +160 BV: +158
2. Cubs 5D: +225 BV: +225
3. Mets 5D: +190 BV: +185
4. Dodgers 5D: EV BV: +102
5. Astros 5D: +180 BV: +180
6. Phillies 5D: +121 BV: +120
7. Royals 5D: -102 BV: +105
Not to much either way to write home about, but to each their own.
When these first came out I put $100 on us +6 at michigan
Also have the same on us to win the following in the futures:
Big Ten Champ +700
Big Ten Legends +310
Make BCS Game +350
Yeah that was bad. Line went from 8.5 to 7.5 on the game so bettors including me lost money on that one. Sorry for those who tailed.
Vag - any reason for the comment like that?
I like em all. Right now I'm torn on my futures bet on MSU to win the Legends. I got it at 4 to 1 and that book has Nebraska at 7 to 4. Another book has Nebraska at 3 to 1. Do I bet a third of my bet size to cover MSU bet. How legit is Nebraska?
Bovada is shady with their lines.
Having said that, I had to go to the Nascar race and Bovada had much better lines. For example, Bookmaker had Biffle 13/10 to finish top 3. Bovada had it at 13/4.
Having said that, I do wanna get on 5 dimes. I know they are good.
Other than the patently obvious no.
Big loss for me.
Thought nostradomus bit was funny, lighten up, francis.
Sorry ya lost. Cost me big too.
IMO they lost some star power on their defense. Offense should be good but I am not sold on Martinez, at some point they are going to have to rely on his passing ability, which is poor.
Yeah I went with that instead of over and tiges so eitner way ouch. Think I am done until msu boise rubberband kinda game.
If i were to purchase a $100 visa gift card could I use that on sites such as 5D, Bookmaker, etc..? I ask because I do not want to get ripped by an international transfer fee to my bank account.
Make sure its NOT US only, and I'd put like $105 on it. I think I got $100 for $104.25 with the fee.
I'd actually go like Green Dot, so your name is on it, and its not just a generic card.

+1 good sir, will buy the green dot card tomorrow. Will start posting my plays here as well.
I tend to agree - I don't feel like throwing away my money. The only reason I'm considering is I put a 10 unit bet on MSU, and to win 40 units would be awesome. At that point, I wouldn't care that much if it was only 36.66 units instead. I'm just not quite sure how big of a threat they really are. I agree that they can't throw at all. They do have a couple tough road games. I am scared though that they catch us at the right time, and they play Michigan at home at night. I think they win that game. I guess there is the schedule below, it is not an easy one. Easily could start out 0-2. Giving them the benefit of the doubt, they could start...actually man look at that schedule. That is tough as hell. At Northwestern and at Iowa are not cupcakes. I think their best case is 6-2. More likely 4-4 or 5-3. I think I'll keep my money. I mean even the most diehard fan would have them 6-2.
