Seeing Robbie Hummel tonight reminds me of the time Fezzik said his absence from the Purdue lineup was worth 7.5 points. About the same time Fezzik believed concentrating on one conference was the way to beat CBB. Good times...

Dink had a classic line after Fezzik boldly proclaimed one season he was only going to follow four MLB teams.

Fezz was going to concentrate on the New York Yankees, Cincinnati Reds, Chicago Cubs and Seattle Mariners.

To which Dink responded, "I'm only going to follow National League Central shortstops."

Gotta love Dinks humor.

These things are great for forums but unless you have a mythical bankroll putting out a dozen 2 and 3 unit plays (which if bet for REAL money would be 25-50K) and youre down 25K (so in for 50-75K) and those 12 go 10-2 and get you close to 'even', then its still all make believe.

If you have an actual bankroll and are down 25-30% of it most guys would adjust their bet size (they would have to). I remember when all the 'professional' gamblers would talk that shit out of their asses trying to sound smart. "Money Management'' was the end all be all. Shrink was the king and his minions all parroted everything he said. Funny how so many of these guys that everyone thinks are so sharp killed themselves (allegedly) or went broke and disappeared owing everyone under the sun money.

Fezzik is a lifelong loser no matter what people want to say. I watched this guy for over 20 years, and other than having his name claim a couple Hilton Contests (which have zero to do with actually being able to make money betting sports) he hasnt done shit. But I guess thats more than most. Except he has been sold as the best 'tout' in the business or the most 'honest'. Which is sort of like being the smartest kid in the retard class I guess.

Sports betting is for suckers anyway. There are multitudes of ways to get action down on other things that are more sick and twisted than begging for a guy to make or miss a FG as time expires. And theyre easier and safer to make money at. You dont have to send money to some shithole place with little to no chance of ever getting paid. Guess thats why its a good thing just about everyone loses.

But like I said it makes for good forum discussions

That's all it is.

What was it last year Fezz ended in the black or something yet he was down like ~120 units at one point by June. I've never actually heard of anyone losing 120% of their Bankroll, I didn't think it was even possible, much less ending the year in the black.

It's just silly forum discussion that has nothing at all to do w/ day-to-day reality.

2004 Fezzik vs present day Fezzik? hahaha yes a significant difference. I worked with the older (winning) fezzik. He used to squeeze me because sometimes I was not available (I had wife and kids before him) but when he joined my club (wife & kids club), he eventually had to defer what he called "Plan Z", becoming a tout.

With that said, I still root for the guy at the end.

Those were probably the best and funniest times to be in Vegas. Now with William Hill taking over Jerry's Nugget too it
feels like the opportunity/advantage chapter has completely closed.

Funny....you see plus 2 units on NE....however have to dig deep to see the minus 5.5 units on the props. Maybe Steve can explain why you lay the number with PATS but like under for Brady passing yards. A little anti-correlated....no? Or is that the idea to stick save some units?

Questions for ComptrBob re above Sunday props:

1) I see you graded the three losing two unit props at -110 but I didn't see any vig attached from Fezzik's DM.

2) Why did Fezzik give you the under 1.5 yard TD vig at -135 when it's archived on Pregame at -145?

I use the BLAP texts to my phone to determine and grade bets.

1. A line of -110 is implied on any bet that has no attached line. Pregame picks other than BLAP do not directly include derivatives and PROPS so PROP 30 cent lines are usually ignored when entered in the description.

2. You would have to ask Fezzik about sending -135 on the shortest TD UNDER 1.5 yds prop. You might notice that the BLAP PROP text was sent more than a day later than the Pats -4 pick. The PROP descriptions on the Pregame page could well have been appended at a much later date to the Pats pick page. Overall, PROP betting lines are very sportsbook and time dependent and really do not justify two unit bets. Overall around 78% of 2018 BLAP plays were 2 or 3 unit weight.
