I was chatting with someone on Twitter last night about getting the best or near best number when betting and sometimes how hard that is to do these days with so many things moving line. That is a change from back in the day but what we are seeing more and more of is Sharp Bettors and Syndicates using Formulas to determine when to play a game if at all. When they get their number they get down on it NOW. That does give us the advantage in very many cases of getting a pretty good number, if not the best.

I don't have a percentage of how often this happens but what does happen a lot is that Lines Get Bought Back at some point during the betting day. How this helps us is of course simple. If you miss a number because you have not handicapped that play prior to the move, or you purchase a Handicapper Play where the number has moved, just be patient. Most likely it will come back to you. If it does not? Then don't bet it or make the decision to bet it anyway, perhaps at a lower level. Of course utilizing a Lines Service can be greatly beneficial and we do have a pretty good one right here at Pregame..

I have a Nice CBB Total for tonight and added plays as well. You can get that Daily Pkg at http://GregShaker.com or better yet 7 & 30 Day Pkgs are discounted 20% today. You guys have a swell day and please join me tomorrow to find out what's in Shaker's Shorts..

Great advice, Greg. Also, lots of line manipulation by the syndicates with fake moves to disguise the true side their betting on.

Yes. And very often syndicates are on different sides of the line.

Nice Topic of the Day Mr. Shaker......from my expierence in trying to get the best number (been working on getting the best number the past 5 years fulltime now), i have found that i actually do better when i dont place so much emphasis on worrying about getting the best number, but rather place emphasis on the number that is before me....as you alluded to Mr. Greg, you can always wait it out for a possible better move, or bet the number before you if you see a line change taking place that is not im your favor (benefit of betting locals, is late line moves compared to Online Bettors)

main thing is to make sure you have a good handle on the game your looking at and if that is the case, you will know if the number before you, holds vaule or not
