The following article is from Stan Sharp as told to (and
posted by) a Pregame.com staff writer. We have convinced Stan to sit
for an occassional interview that we'd convert into an article.
Stan Sharp is a Professional Bettor in Las Vegas that has won 57.5% of his plays over a 30+ month period. Stan only bets one game a day
but the work begins early in the week as Stan monitors how the lines move and why the money is being bet the way it is.

Interesting to point out how the Wise Guys will bet one side early in the week to get the ball rolling and have the public follow and drive the number higher only to have the Wise Guys come back in on Saturday and bet the other side heavy at the inflated price.
I have seen this done in Horse Racing as well where a barn will bet one horse as soon as tote board opens to draw attention to horse only to bet their horse right at post time hard so they protect their odds. Smoke Screen Betting is a clever tool when done correctly....
Good Stuff Stan
These inside the steam articles are really good and an interesting read as well.
One of those games will be a beautiful thing, you guys know me and I am talking about the game at Arrowhead. There is a certain right and wrong side there fellas.
reading this helps you think games through like a Pro.
