SEC -200 to win 2014 BCS Title (every other conference +175); implying SEC Champ is 65% likely (via @WilliamHillUS)

Would you lay the -200 or take the +175?

Both. And have a handful of great hedge opportunities, as well as adding specific teams as the futures market changes so rapidly. If you didn't hedge til the SEC Title game, where whoever wins the SEC West will probably be more than -4 (-200 +/-) over the SEC East (UGA replaces their entire defense) you'd already have the best of that game. And of course if there's not and SEC team in the BCS Title game, having +175 to play with wouldn't suck.

Of any big win we have had, or winning streak, or even coming out of a losing streak, of this I am most proud:

Some forum posters have broken into the industry and have achieved moderate success while carrying themselves with professionalism and integrity. Dave Essler, of the pick-selling site Pregame, immediately comes to mind.

I still want to know if all these people on Twitter and Pick-Selling sites claim to have beaten up books for years, I would think there would be no places left to place wagers.

SEC REPRESENTATIVE IN BCS TITLE GAMES

2006 FLORIDA +7

2007 LSU -4  

2008 Florida -6  (but it opened around 3)

2009 Bama-4

2010 Auburn -1 (opened at 3)

2011 SEC vs SEC ,  so automatic winner

2012 Bama -9.5

By this data  you couldve layed around -200 or less in the championship game alone, a majority of the time and not have your money tied up for 6 months.

I'm not very bright but how is betting both even remotely profitable?

Rj. I would take that prime-time +175  time for a change.

I think he meant "either" instead of both.  No matter which side you take now, there will be opportunities to bet the other side during the season and lock in a small profit
