sat plays

Today nothing early and again really not much looks promising for a late play.

Also….. The lines I post for the plays is what is widely available at the time of posting. I usually get a much better line for my bet. If your betting into a 20c line there is no way you can follow these plays. A 10c line is available now from most books and with matchbook you get at worst a 6c line.

I got quite a large response to my idea to start sending out early plays the same as i do the late plays. Since almost all were positive about the idea I will start doing that.

If you want on the email or text messaging list for early and late plays just drop me an email. I will still post both on this blog.

The split between early and late plays is about 50-50 and I would expect that to continue through the rest of the season. These late plays are FREE. Just send me your email address and I will add you to the group receiving late plays.

I am posting the following email and my answer. Its a good question and my answer hopefully clears up some of the confusion in my numbers.

My Answer:

Nice to hear from you. Let me see if I can make some sense out of this.

The first records are late plays for the 08 season. The 2nd is the late plays for the 07 season and the third is the early plays for the 08 season.

If you add up the early and late plays you will come up with the number I posted at the all star break.

I keep separate records for 2 reasons. First just for my own purposes to see if there is any bias between the ones that are clear cut in the morning and the ones that are posted before the game, the 2nd is that until recently the late plays were only sent out via email to people that signed up…so they were not verifiable.

Finally the month and rate of return at the bottom does not include the late plays for the reason stated above….the late plays were not verifiable. So the totals below on month returns are only for the early plays.

I hope that clears things up a bit for you. Feel free to ask if you have any other questions

If any of you have more questions or comments ask away…poker , sports, vegas.
