Also, multiple times throughout the season my posted picks were actually worse lines than were currently out and I was told to shop better for lines. Sometimes you get better lines, sometimes you get worse. It's all part of betting. I always posted the line I actually took with the correct juice as part of a way to keep an accurate record since that was the main goal. My lines were always from pinnacle and you can even go back and look at line histories if you wish to do so. Basically your entire statement was false.
You obviously have no reservations about taking the first deal to sell your picks that came your way. So while it may have not been your primary original intent, you were more than willing to jump ship and abandon this thread at the first opportunity. And you have followed these forums long enough to know that others, including sharky, gave away free picks here then proceeded to start selling their picks.
I would not know the specifics regarding the lines you posted. I can only comment from the several days I tailed your picks and always got either the same line as you posted or a worse one. This is a small sample size and obviously it is unfair for me to assume you posted lines favorable to your selections. I would, however, make a prop bet that the lines you posted deviated in your favor versus the actual line at the the time of posting. Again small sample size, and I doubt your intent was nefarious.
I enjoyed your picks and can see your analysis improving with experience and expectations. I suspect you will have a winning record for the remainder of the season, although I doubt you will maintain as high of an roi as you have through the early season. Obviously oddmakers will have more info upon which to base their spreads and the numbers will generally be sharper.
