I've been burnt too many times on the run line with my team winning by 1, so I don't do it anymore, ever. The only sport where I take money lines regularly (exclusively) is baseball. Today I like Dustin McGowan (-128) @ Snell (+108), Lannan (-101) vs. Padilla (-119), Davies (EVEN) vs. Lincecum (-120), Webb (-150) @ Hernandez (+130), and my dog will be Vazquez (+125) @ Dempster (-145).


By the time I saw this (a few hours ago) the TAB had shut everything except Vazquez vs Dempster :-C :-C :-C :-t
(They seem to shut ones that their shops won't be open for the next morning :-C, very _____ing backward :-C )

They slid Davies to +120 before game time, so I left t hat game alone. McGowan's up, Lannan just fell behind, Webb is down... could be a rough day. Still a bunch of innings to go, though.

I like the Under (8 Runs/EVEN) in the Verlander @ Wolf match up tonight.

Yeah, I was going to mention that line moving. Plus the Giants have been good on the road this year and should hopefully hold on with Lincecum pitching. I was actually curious about that pick but hopefully the rest of those games come through for ya.

Bleh, Webb and Lannan both lose, but my biggest bet of the day was McGowan so I didn't lose all that much. And naturally, I left the Kansas City game alone and they're tied 10 - 10. :-D

I took that Under in the Tigers/Padres, though, with the way Wolf has thrown at home and Verlander has thrown of late. If that game goes over, it'll be because the bullpens get shelled, and I don't see it happening. Could end up close to even for the day, or down quite a bit...

I see some of you guys signed up for Centsports. Are you guys getting the feel for it? The premise of free money and betting is always a good mix.

You don't want to use the NZ TAB for baseball betting.

From Aussie I would either open an account with Centrebet In Alice Springs or with Bet365 in the UK. 24/7 betting and far better odds than the TAB gives.

As for multi or parlay betting on baseball :-t That is an absolute mugs bet and the bookmakers love taking them.

No problem. Personally, I bet everything on a moneyline bet for the Cards. I don't trust Lester, and the Cards have been handlnig Boston nicely, and at +195 there was so much potential reward I couldn't resist.
