I think making wagers or promoting sites is a no no

Taking about lines and spreads. ... and your thoughts should be ok

But I'm just a serf

May have to look into the soccer thing. I went against my gut and bet on us last weekend. The numbers were about 70% in our favor as a road favorite of less than a TD coming off a bye. The numbers didn't account for Chico's abysmal post bye record.


I find it much easier to bet on over/under overall. Like yesterday I was pretty sure Bears would win, but I was more positive the over would hit, which it did. It's basically trying to figure if there is going to be a low scoring defensive type game, or a decent scoring to shootout type game. Now this is just for football, the over unders on basketball are a lot harder for me.

Basketball o/u is terrible. Soccer o/u is typically 1.5 - 2.5. Which is a two one game. Good for middle road teams or a power vs a low end. I try to stay away from picking winners to. Over under or second half spread for a game im watching works best for me

They are doing pretty well.  Problem with the power house teams is they are usually heavy favorites, thus the inevitable upset takes a lot of games to make up when it happens.
