tennis-- i have played my whole life and have an understanding of technique. sometimes guys have it all working perfectly and have a "game" over others who they handle easily. only problem is cannot be afraid to lay some juice.

NBA year after year and success is measured by dollars won. Units and all that do not matter. It is all about how much money is won or lost.

BASEBALL for me,i believe its the easiest sport to cap.pitching is the main key in capping baseball and home field can be huge.sportsbooks scare most people away from baseball by placing high lines on good teams and pitchers but if you play scared then you will lose.don't let the line scare you away,if you capped the game as well as you can and you have a ace pitcher going then go for it,thats how books make their money,they scare you off a winner and lead you to a loser

don't bet many sports these days - just fooball & MLB. Do well at each, but since there are so many more games available to be bet in MLB, it becomes my automatic fave. I really can't imagine that many guys can depend on football to make their nut, given the relatively few games and even less history between teams.

Like royalfan said, success is measured by dollars won. For that reason I say college football, cause I routinely make big bets and definitely know it the best. My worst days are Saturdays in the fall, but they're also my best. This year was not nearly as profitable as last season when I rode Oregon like a rented mule though, so I consider it a bit of a failure. If Bama wins I'll be happy...

Next would be NBA playoffs and MLB mid-summer...I know golf pretty well but as much as a fan as a bettor, therefore I never really hit anything hard.

Agree - EXCEPT for those who run this site

For those who run this site it is about hitting an arbitrary fixed percentage NOT Units Won

For those who run this site it is FAR MORE IMPORTANT to hit 60% than it is to hit 50% for A LOT more money won than hitting 60%

NHL for me - not even close
