Jimmyshivers Week 1 ACC Football Thread

Hello everyone & welcome back for another exciting (and likely incredibly confusing) season of ACC Football.  In this year’s game of ACC roulette, we see the conference lose original member Maryland but add Louisville.  Adding to the confusion is the partial addition of Notre Dame, who will only play 5 ACC games a year for the foreseeable future.  If any conference could get away with adding half a team, it had to...

Betting Moneyline Dogs

With college football season fast approaching, it’s time to start developing a plan of attack for 2014. With the higher payouts that betting moneyline dogs provides, a lot of bettors may forgo taking points and only betting the moneyline, but is that smart?

So how do you middle a football game you ask?  Well first you need multiple places to bet, such as a couple offshore books, local books,...

Paying Attention to Big Line Moves

One of the things you hear a lot is to make sure you’re always getting the best number. I’m guilty of it, and I’ve never broken down how it’s done historically, because there isn’t really readily available opening line data out there. Paying attention to big line moves sometimes is smoke and mirrors. Big bettors can manipulate the market on a Thursday to move lines so they can come back later at...
