    Easiest two picks of the season tonight- UNC and the over. UNC covers by 15 and the over covers by 30. Creeping my way back to even...

    yeah I put 500 on the cheats to cover, and wanted to go over, but I've had a really good ATS record killed by poor OU record....so I back off of that.

    I went full in on this, picked up 1,000 and moved up a spot

    I went contrarian to basically the entire league and fell on my face! So degenerate. I came into the day not really wanting to bet on that game.

    Discipline!

    Discipline? Discipline? There is no discipline in degenerate gambling! 😎

    Would a disciplined me stand pat to move to the top by virtue of other's failure? What would be the fun in that, and where would the degeneracy be?

    Besides, unlike "high-efficiency" Bob Green with a whopping 4,850 FMUs on a mere 16 bets, I am a volume bettor!

    Fish80 and OPK seem to have the balance of a great win percentage on a moderate number of bets.

    The siren song of O/U...

    Record Against the spread? 19-12
    Record O/U 9-12

    I'd be top 3 or 4 if I'd lay off the O/Us....

    I am a degenerate, but none-the-less will stay away from the Duke-Pitt game tonight.

    Sure, part of it is that I have no idea how the game will go, but the real reason is I don't want to watch the game with even a thought of the spread or over/under invading my thoughts as I cheer our Devils to victory.

    It was just way too annoying last game, and that last meaningless 2 pt shot at the buzzer was kind of a buzz kill for me.


    So, 3 games and 3,000 FMUs on the line for me tonight!

    It's pretty tight at the top of the leaderboard now.

    Congrats to Mr Green. No pressure, Bob, but we’re all chasing you now. 😊

    I'm wondering if Bob is just going to sit back and let us catch him. Please note that the last two years, I played all the way to the end and, I believe, I ended up with more bets places than anyone in the field. I'm just saying, Bob.

    Troublemaker had a good day yesterday. He leap frogged me by 1,000 FMUs.

    Nicely done!

    Nice of Fish80 to keep betting and give us a chance!

    I notice now also, there are 15 players in positive territory. That's the most I think I've seen.

    Thanks, just to be in contention at this point is all one can hope for. (So, well done to you, too!)

    And you're right, this looks more like a PGA championship type leaderboard than a US Open type leaderboard with so many folks "under par" so to speak.

    Nope. I will make bets all the way to the end. That said, I am a low volume bettor. I like to pick and choose where I perceive the odds give me an advantage. I've been lucky multiple times already. A cold streak is always around the corner.

    Hardest bets are the games between inconsistent mid to lower tier teams...like the Ga. Tech/ND matchup last night. Who the hell knows who is going to have a good game on a given night with teams as inconsistent at that?

    I've had success with big underdogs:

    Wake +17 "beat" VT by 1 point.
    Boston College +10.5 "beat" Louisville by .5 point.

    Those large point spreads are hard to cover especially due to the favored team's propensity to play a deep bench the last couple minutes of the game.

    Contrary to Indoor66's advice, I take a hard look at the O/U because sometimes a number jumps out as favorable.

    In the end, a lot of luck is required. I won 500 fake dollars when UVa made that meaningless shot as time expired. That is a 1,050 fake dollars swing.
