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 took the time to discuss some of the Key Line Moves this week as we will call this series "Inside the Steam"
Iowa @ Michigan StMichigan St opened +1.5 now Pick and -1Stan notes that we saw this exact situation last week with Iowa and Wisconsin. Stan noted that he believed the Wisconsin move was as much public money as wise guy money and he said the line would drop back down on Saturday as the Sharp outfits would buy Iowa at +3. Iowa did drop down and Iowa did get the money. This week Stan says this move is for real as after last week the public won't want Michigan St they will now believe that Iowa is for real. After all, the Public just lost their money going against Iowa by betting Wisconsin last week. Earlier this year Wisconsin went into Michigan St and beat Michigan St 38-30. So how can Michigan St beat Iowa if they couldn't beat Wisconsin. Stan says RESPECT this Move this Week Michigan St money is for real. TCU @ BYUTCU Opened Pick now -2.5In what may be one of the best games of the weekend the Sharps wasted no time in taking a position on this game. When a game of this magnitude ( Both in Top 25) gets bet on Monday and Tuesday you have to take notice of what is going on. They bet TCU hard right up to -2.5. TCU is a team that is good that the public doesn't know a lot about because they don't get to see them. Stan says that this looks like the Wise Guys making a definitive stand on the TCU side and says you should respect this move.
Clemson @ Miami-FlClemson Opened +7 now +5Stan notes that the Wise Guys jumped on Clemson right away as the thought of getting a full TD was too good to pass up. Looking at the game closer Clemson is 3-3 with their 3 losses coming by a total of 10 points. So why wouldn't they take the Dog plus a TD. If this line continues to creep down to 4.5 or 4 The Sharps will buy this game back and take Miami-Fl on the Weekend looking for a live middle situation based on the closeness of Clemson's games. But generally speaking Stan notes that early money on the Dog is usually the real deal.
Wake Forest @ NavyNavy Opened -1 & -1.5 now -3Stan notes that this move is a move where the public will jump on and follow the steam. Navy scored 38 last week while Wake Forest scored 3 so the public will love Navy in a pick the winner situation. The sharps buy Navy at -1 and the line goes up then the public jumps on to piggy back the so called steam and this line hits 3 maybe even 3.5 late in the week. When that happens the sharps will be back only this time buying the dog for value. Stan says this move is not true steam but more of a position play that will be created by the public. Stan Sharp is a Professional Bettor in Las Vegas that has won 57.5% of his plays over a 31 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.
I ONLY QUESTION SOME OF THE GAMES HE SELECTS WHEN THERE ARE CLEARLY BETTER GAMES TO LOOK AT. I GUESS I WOULD RATHER PLAY ON A DECENT TEAM THAT HAS SOME SORT OF CHANCE OF COVERING RATHER THAN PLAYING A VERY BAD TEAM JUST BECAUSE THE PUBLIC IS ON THE OTHER SIDE, EXAMPLE, ILLINOIS 2 WEEKS AGO, NOTRE DAME, AND ESPECIALLY NTHE FREAKN REDSKINS ON MONDAY
you got on a ride going downhill. when you exhaust your bankroll or become too inpatient to follow him, it will climb back up just like a freakin stock market.
he isn't doing well in cfb for sure, so just fade him in cfb and follow other sports
CORRECTION - 26 WINS - 22 LOSSES
7-10 IN CFB THIS YEAR
1-6 LAST 7 CFB
I HAVE BEEN WITH STAN SHARP FOR 2 MONTHS AND THE REASON I SIGNED UP WITH HIM WAS BECUSE OF HIS CONSITENCY AND ONLY PLAYING ONE PLAY A DAY, AFTER 2 MONTHS HE IS +2 GAMES.I JUST DONT GET SOME OF HIS PLAYS. LIKE THE PLAY HE CAME UP WITH YESTERDAY, NOTRE DAME? IS THAT THE BEST PLAY HE COULD COME UP WITH? OUT OF THE WHOLE CARD? OK ST, TEXAS WERE EASY PLAYS TO ME. IT WOULD JUST BE NICE TO ACTUALLY NOT HAVE TO SIT THROUGH A NAIL BITER EVERY GAME BECAUSE THATS THE WAY IT HAS BEEN THE WHOLE TIME. HE CALLS A GAME A BLOWOUT AND I HAVE YET TO SEE ONE. THEY BARELY EVEN GET THERE WITH SOME LUCK ALONG THE WAY. I KNOW HIS HISTORY 0F WIN % BUT ITS HARD TO FIGURE AFTER ACTUALLY BEING A CLIENT
i just found this site and im really impressed in ur ideas...wow...
Isn't it amazing how guys like Stan & VR know what the line is going to do before it does it. Once again Stan you were right on you said the Sharps would be hitting the Wake Forest side late in the week and look Cris is down to 1.5 and Bet US is down to 2.
You Wise Guys are scary good!!!
