    The lines for this weekends games were so easy to predict, especially Fridays games.

    Baylor -4.5 and Mich State - 1.5 - parlay - easiest money all season besides the ISU @ Drake (pickem) in November. Top the Sunday off with UCONNwomen -25.5. I think I'm going to buy a new tv :yes:

    A buddy and I were just talking about this over beers last night, which means next weekend will be a bloodbath.

    I never see posts on how somebody lost a bunch of money. Betting must be so easy.

    Baylor and MSU weren't favorites. Do you know how to bet or just got lucky?

    Baylor went from -4.5 to +4 in 2 days? I don't think so.

    Also, I'm not and never will be a habitual gambler. I've literally made about 5-6 bets in the past 2 years. The best way to do it is just scope out the lines and when you see something you really like just go for it. I'd never bet on games/teams I don't know anything about.

    I'm still confused about your point spreads. I'm on sportsbook as well and Baylor was not a 4.5 point favorite. I wish they were!! Did you flip them?

    I havent lost in quite some time on a sports bet. Around 2 years or so. Only make a couple per year. Usually the beginning of basketball season or football season. Early on in basketball season the lines are way out of whack because nobody knows how good anyone is. For example, ISU was a pick'em at Drake (we won by ~ 30) a week after Drake got out rebounded to a DIII team. Easy money.

    Also, Baylor - 4.5 against St Marys was a joke, as was Mich State - 1.5 against UNI. UNI was never going to beat them after upsetting KU and all the national pub.
