I’m sorry Vegas, but my only allegiance is to my bank roll. You could have had +145 with the Washington Capitals in Las Vegas, as opposed to the sharper lines in the offshore world, which have them at +125. You will continue to find this type of value betting against the Knights around town.
By the way, if you have been following the hockey lines during the last few weeks, you will know exactly what I am talking about when I say the value has been in betting against the Knights. Every single game, the sportsbooks are begging you not to play Vegas.
This is due to the public betting so much money on the Knights when coupled with the fact that they know the future books will be hurt if the Knights win the Cup. Keep your eye on one of the many free line services. You will see the juicy prices betting against the Knights.
Throughout the playoffs, there have been sharp guys betting against the Knights and getting their you-know-what’s handed to them. Yes, they may be a team of destiny; but need I remind you of the Bronx Tale again! If you can’t pay your mortgage go ask owner Bill Foley for the money – see what he tells you.
MLB is finally coming around in the Krackman Camp. It is a long, hard season, and every sharp guy I know lost the first month. This is why I always preach bankroll management, and betting only 1% of your allotted gambling bankroll on each play. There are two sharp groups that keep laying 2-1 or more on big marquee teams. I just cannot bring myself to do that.
My entire life has been set on making money by shopping for the best game-time price and taking the dogs in those spots. One of my favorite Sun Tzu quotes: “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the results of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”
