a troo betting addict would with his buddy, another betting addict. After that bet, they'll look at two birds on a tree branch and wager which one flies off it first. Then it's on to the cats or which one of their friends will be next to grab a beer out of the fridge.

I stayed away from this game. I can't really get a good read on it. The line/bets placed don't really suggest anything one way or another. Tough to get a proper read on it.

Of course the degenerate in me hates not betting on the first game of the season, but ehhh it's this more responsible lifestyle thing I'm trying. No strong feeling? No bet.

What about betting on when a certain president will or will not be impeached?

Yeah definitely. But I don't like those futures bets much... Even with sports... Takes too long to get a potential return.

What about USC made you want to make that pick? I know it was right but that screamed Stanford
To me.

Before anyone gives me shit I picked Georgia against ND. That game didn't look like I thought it would though.

Me too. I thought USC looked terrible last week and was highly overrated.

Hell, I think they still are overrated...

And this Sam Darnold bullshit really pisses me off too. He's not THAT great. He just happens to be USC's QB so. ..AUTOMATIC HEISMAN CONSIDERATION.

Yeah, that's what everyone thought. But even with the high volume of wagers on Stanford, the line kept on moving in USC's favor. That's what is known in the business as "reverse line movement". Theoretically a line should only move in favor of a team if they're getting the majority of the bets, and in this instance it was either big time money was coming in from an expert or Vegas was simply inviting for more people to bet on Stanford knowing full well USC would cover.

Remember, the best way to get a valuable read on an outcome of a game is tracking the line movements in correlation with the public wagers. That'll tell you way more than your personal evaluations.

My 2 other picks stunk though.

I'm currently 2-2 in this thread.

I think I'm gonna stick strictly to games featuring top 25 teams. Otherwise my theories are more prone to failure...

Even though I know I'm good, I'm still learning and always tweaking things myself.

I should also note that the size of a line makes a big difference too. If the line was say USC -2.5 I wouldn't have felt as good about it. But the line was -5.5 which essentially meant that USC would have to win by a touchdown or more. When betting football there's a massive difference between 2.5 and 5.5.

So when a numbers extra large in a teams favor when most people believe it shouldn't be, that's usually a good sign that they'll win by more than the line.

Dude I know what the point spread means. But how do you compare where money goes v how the line moves? I thought movement was dictated mostly by public money.

Exactly. That's "what they say", but it's often times not true. Or if it is public money, often times the expert high-rollers can influence a line with their wager even though 70% of the public is on one side.... So if all signs suggest everyones loving one side, yet vegas has the line moving in the other teams favor, then you gotta roll with Vegas.

Decoding where the money is going isn't a fool-proof strategy, but I use a few different sites that I think give a good representation of where the money is going.

This is a GREAT site and invaluable tool for deciding what an outcome of a game is gonna be.

http://www.covers.com/sports/ncaaf/matchups

If you go there, you'll notice by the teams logo that there's a percentile in big bold numbers. That's the percentage of people picking the team in the covers point spread contest. Now sure, it's not an official number regarding wagers, but it gives you a solid idea of what people are thinking.

I then compare those percentages with the "betting trends" shown on this site and often times they matchup more than not

http://www.scoresandodds.com/casinogrid.html?sort=rot

If I'm getting different numbers there's a few other sites I refer to. But those are the 2 main sites i use.

But really, Covers.com is the best. It'll help you out immensely if you're still doing the betting pools.

If you sign up with Covers they have some good forums and stuff too... But don't read em to get picks. Most of those idiots are always wrong. You can me as a friend there if you like. My user name is Fuzzrod
