    One of my biggest bets of the year. Putting two dimes on Manchester United -0.5 @ -103. Capped this game and think there's tremendous value on M.U
    Bookies definitely sleeping on this one. There's never free money when sports betting but this is as close as you'll come. FYI: I seldom lose my big bets !!

    Way to go Barry. I'm sure your "loyal subscribers" are very happy about this "near lock" you just lost them a bunch of $ on.

    JB, you do any WWE plays? Been glancing at them here and there and no drastic movement like before. The only flip was the tag team line (I think). Probably staying away I guess...

    But... But... Betting against the best team in the league for below even money had so much value...

    Could be a situation like the event before WrestleMania where nothing leaked, but we still have plenty of time. I've seen the shifts happen as late as an hour before start time. I'm gonna do my best to keep an eye out today and shout out if/when the shifts happen

    He's trying to avoid posting here about it I think due to the chance someone is watching and will leak bad info on at least one match. I would PM Joe B about any pro wrestling stuff.

    Just seen this, yikes. I'd be interested in Barry explaining why he thought betting against Leicester to at least pick up a point here at below evens was the right time to go in with one of his biggest bets of the year. I mean, betting on them to beat Leicester at this stage all things considered isn't too great a bet, but going on to say that it's as close to free money as you'll come? Madness. After ripping on your man for fading Villa over the last few weeks too and dismissing it as luck.

    Anyway, had £20 on Feyernood to beat Willem II earlier at 2.15. Kuyt and their other main striker were out injured but thought the odds were still decent enough considering both teams form and Feyernood needed a win to help make sure they qualify for Europa group stages next season.

    Did a 7-fold of a few other dutch matches involving btts or team goals, along with marseille to score in their match and valencia to score later tonight. All come off so far, if Valencia score it was £35 off a £4 bet so not too bad. I was in a similar spot last night though, think it was a 9-fold mix of certain teams not to keep a clean sheet and over 2.5 goals and they all came in other than the Barca game which I did as o2.5 goals, think that was £5 to return £90 so a bit gutted about that, hopefully the last leg of an accumulator doesn't muck it up two days in a row.

    Back when the series was 1-0 Pacers, I recommended a bet on the Raptors to win the series at -160. Well, I'm hedging the shit out of that at +220 before game 7. Don't get me wrong, they can win this game easily but they have been so inconsistent that I don't even want to risk it. If it weren't for a fourth quarter collapse in game 5 by the Pacers, the series could have ended on Friday. The payout in the hedge isn't great but it's better than a loss I suppose :)

    I'd be surprised if Toronto finds a way to lose this game tonight. I agree they've been total schizos this series but I think they figure out how to get it done tonight. Betting wise I'm rooting for a close Toronto win. I parlayed the 3 favorites on the ML today (could not see Miami or GS losing and they both won easy) so Toronto winning closes that out but I also took the +6 with Indiana. So really hoping Toronto wins but doesn't cover so both cash!

    Edit: forgot to respond to this quote when i posted this lol, I wouldn't be surprised if he faded leicester because vardy was still suspended, when his absence has been overacted too, they are more than capable without him and have proved it time and time again this season with their consistency.

    fixed.

    The reason I ultimately decided to hedge was because Indiana has the coaching and experience advantage over the Raptors. Plus they sort of match up well defensively. Raptors looking good right now though!!

    Raptors really choked this easy win away. I really hope we get good odds on Miami series if they hold on to this one, I'll be all over the heat most Likely

    @iGnP thanks for the heads up on the Toronto series bet awhile back. I didn't have a big bet on it so decided to let it ride (although I was kicking myself when they were choking down the stretch, lol). Nice little payday, appreciate it bruh.

    Any trap lines on the WWE JB? I should get involved next time if not.

    One underdog won, but wouldn't call it a "trap". Key is to always follow the lines that are HEAVILY moving, and all but the one underdog that won did.

    Wanted to shout it out in here but I was on the road during a rainstorm while placing bets during shifts. Sorry guys, but couldn't risk death to help :D
