Here is what my book is listing for open champ this week and if it will go to a playoff, let me know if I am looking at this correct please

 

Play Off To Decide The Winner?
07/17  6501  Yes 
 -335
12:45 AM 6502  No 
 +240

 

But here are odds on how it finishes

Margin Of Victory
07/17  6503  Playoff 
 +240
12:45 AM 6504  One Shot  
 +250
6505  Two Shots 
 +350
6506  Three Shots 
 +450
6507  Four Shots or More 
 +330

 Something is off in my opinion and thinking I should bet No at +240 for it to finish in playoff, I do not think it will. But in "marging of victory" it has playoff  Am I looking at this wrong or what? should I bet both at the +240 mark?

Yup, they're backwards.  If you two have a good relationship let him know.  

You want a handicapping tip?  Spend as much time getting a good number as you do researching games. Depositing/withdrawing/depositing/withdrawing is a pain, but I guarantee you will lose less, or win more.  I can't guarantee that for any other piece of advice

a decent relationship, but not great. Should I play both at 500 each? that would be a 750.00 guarenteed profit

500 to win 1200 on No playoff and then

500 to win 1200 on margin of victory is a playoff

I already played max, which is unfortunately only 500. I just wanted to make sure that I was not looking at it wrong, glad you all helped me out. Now i just hope he does not try to cancel my bet when he figures it out. Thanks guys

I hate to tell you this but that was the worst possible thing you could do.  Not only are you taking a major shot at him by betting both sides, only one of them is a bad line.  If you're going to scalp, you never do it if one of your bets has a chance of being canceled.  What will likely happen is he will cancel one and you'll have 500-1200 on a playoff still live (which I'm sure you wouldn't have bet alone).

Also, if you're going to take a shot, just betting the off line alone would have given you more equity than scalping
