I'd say he's the worst, but then he told guests a party that he thinks Mitt is more qualified to be POTUS than Barry. So...like 2nd worst?

Re: April - June LC Thread: Good old country hardball

so i have an NFL DB and i have this weird result which i am trying to see if i am doing something wrong here or if this is the case. i see over the last years there are more instances of a team beating the spread by 6 points than of tying the spread. i see that there have only been 36 instances of a tie for whole number spreads making for a 4.3% chance of a push

Re: April - June LC Thread: Good old country hardball

and just because i'm curious, how many people do you think have paid for brianl's service? not just a day or two but a month or more at a time??

he's a good guy, and was very professional in dealing with me, but it doesn't look real good right now...

Re: April - June LC Thread: Good old country hardball



also, i'm on the fence whether they should be using his record from the beginning of the year or not. on one hand, it shows his whole year, but on the other he def wasn't there at that point and only was posting in a thread here i think?

how much could he be getting paid? a percentage of the revenue he brings in?

he's really gotta be regretting that decision.

Why? He is getting paid something to do no extra work, loves the attention, and is betting McNugget money into liquid markets, so his opportunity cost for going tout is significantly lower than that of a winning bettor.

Re: April - June LC Thread: Good old country hardball

lol , Cant imagine doing it with all that pressure but i think he'll probably turn it around soon. its the tout curse. I've seen many people go tout and many have folded to the pressure. He's actually crushing in soccer though as he's emailed a few soccer plays.

Sweetjones55 used to be like 60% over 2-3 years or something before going tout . this year he was like 45% or something and was constantly getting mocked on sbr as a good fade.
I think Sharky is the only one that continued to crush it and was destroying the closing lines on college football by like 2-3 points on his big plays.
One time he had a pick with the Okla/Okla St Under 74 or something and said he was flying out to vegas to put half his roll on it. next day the line was U67 but ended up closing at like 71.
Going to be interesting how Sharky does this season though.



oh yeah, I'm also wondering where poogs is

Lol at every last one of them, but including Sheepjones in the discussion? You gotta be kidding me. Do you not remember his thread here?
