Apologies if I did.

The line is either moving in my favor or against me. I don't think about it any further than that.


There have just been too many instances of me taking a line at, say, -5, and then watching it move down to -2 right before the game, and then watching the favorite win by 15.

I guess I'm not necessarily convinced that sharps are actually that sharp. So it isn't something I consider.

I just was not confident in WKU tonight. I know a lot of people were on them in this thread (though sometimes that is bad), and was gonna join them. Then I saw the line movement. Didn't like it, so I didn't lock in the bet. Simple as that.

Normally, I'm with you. There were a few games earlier this season where I had some late steams against my line, but I was confident and it hit. Others didn't.

Bottom line, I'm nowhere near a great handicapper, and if I see some late sharp money coming in against a team I liked, I'm probably gonna lay off unless I'm super confident.

If I were you, I wouldn't even mess with the third prong of it (the over/under play). UF and Bama sounds like a fine two game teaser. Methinks Bama and Baylor also sounds like a fine two game teaser, and might possibly be the first teaser that I put in all year.*

*I hate teasers.

I think Bama down to 14 is a great part of any teaser.

You're cool. If i came across holier than thou it was unintended. I'm not quitting my day job either. I have good weeks and bad weeks.

There have been instances where I got talked out of a game I liked and then the game I liked hit easily....and that just royally pissed me off. So I try to never let it happen. I like the idea of being able to know whether I have an acumen for this stuff or not...even when signs point in the direction of "doesn't have acumen".

It's all good. I know what you mean. Never know how good you are if you let someone else make or break your picks.

If Toledo hadn't moved up like crazy, that would have been a fantastic one tease down. I'm not great with over/under, but here are a couple spread teases that look moderately okay.

VT+19 [I think duke may win this game outright]
SMU-7 [me likey]
Akron+29 [Ohio isn't an offensive juggernaut]
UAB+23
South Bama+30
SDSU-12
ECU-8
UCF-11
ULM-15

Thoughts on a teaser with aTm -2 and under 86? I think La Tech is overrated and is just a trendy upset pick. I think aTm's defense is better than people are giving them credit for, and Tech might not get to 30.

I think that's a strong tease. I can't bring myself to bet against LaTech though. They've been too good to me this year.
