Question for Einewton since you seem the most knowledgeable.

The cost given is the odds basically, in American format (unless there's somewhere to change it to decimal and I missed it) if I'm understanding this correctly. The problem I see is that the odds they give you to bet at aren't always found. So for instance, if today's total line bet (at normal, 5 units, and 5 series length) is 21.8 to both recoup from the last two losses and make 1 unit profit, that is contingent upon your last bets being at odds predicted by 5lines, which from looking at a few bookmakers are not the odds actually given. So for instance today I would have to find a bookmaker where the odds for the total score of the Cincinnati game being above 8 are -110. I just looked at two bookmakers and found -104 and and -106. So unless I'm really missing something, there's no way to change the amounts on 5lines to account for your personal bookmakers odds. I hope this made sense and I can clarify if need be.
Thanks in advance for your response.

The one I'm using is exactly the same as 5lines.net - Maybe I got lucky? www.Sportsbook.ag watch out though because the bet limit is limited to under $1000 I think.. $5000 would be necessary for those who do a 7 series betting $50 (high roller)

Yo one little concern of mine.. is anything you make a taxable income in the United States? I thought betting was illegal.

No, online sports betting is illegal in the US. Betting is only legal in Nevada (hence Vegas) in person.

That refers to gambling, not sports betting. More and more states are allowing table games. Further research shows that more states than Nevada (though not many more) allow sports betting.

now it says "20 hours and 34 minutes"

I was assuming this was an every day thing. last Sunday the Padres played so I don't know if their system is broken or something. Doesn't seem normal..

anyhow.. with a 3-2 win/loss I'll be looking to bet $100+ flat in the near future if this keeps up.

Break for a few day's... Thought i would come here to see how well you are doing...

How much have you all made?

I am +90 units... The new low juice picks are awesome.

I'm using $50 unit size... I've made $4,500

Doing this with these guys is more like a really good investment...

Well you're doing very good.. Glad you made this thread. Thanks

So far I've doubled. $50 deposit has become $113 but it could have been more if I had the guts to chase more.

What's your chase set at? do you recall how high your highest bet was?

Congrats to both of you guys. With today's picks (I only do the total and Low Juice) I've made some really good money.

Doubling is amazing... In a whole years time, most people can't even double their money in the stock market at wall street unless you are very lucky. Using 5Lines it doubles my money every month so far.

ridgemont4, do you run with the high juice? It just get scared when I have to chase on the high juice.

I cashed out my initial bankroll + the $65 that I paid for 5Lines... So now I'm investing back purely the money made from this.

very nice. I only play the total line. may have played the run line a little in the beginning. and yes you are right, my account doubles in about a month.. it's really great. have not been about to cash out yet, but I'll keep you all informed. that is the only real concern of mine, since I do online betting with an overseas bookie. I want my account to at least quadruple from here before I'm willing to take some money out. and then i'll be like you, betting purely off money I've made. however I'm not set up to withdraw money yet, still need to submit two items to prove my identity, then wait and see if the check will ever come in the mail. but I'm not that worried.

Nice, I know your with an A+ book, so I'm sure it's all good.. How did the Bitcoin book pan out?

One thing I did not like was the max bet was very low (under 4 btc) and the min bet was 1 BTC. but the real issue was Bitcoin itself.. I'm really not very into it to be honest.

The max bet used to be larger, and that was back when one bitcoin was worth $20. someone must've taken them to the cleaners. Either way, there's a lot of action available on btcsportsmatch.com. If you're willing to pay more juice, anonibet has worked fine for me with bets as high as 40 BTC. They also have alternate spreads and totals for baseball.
