Advice on starting up Profession Sports Betting

I'm going to attempt for the first time to make a living off sports betting. I know I have the ability based on my years of experience and my stats history (not my stats on covers). I am a US player looking to bet on-line and I will only have an initial bankroll of $2500-$3000. I plan on placing initial bets around 2%-7% ($20-$70 units) and then chasing my losses (Chasing bets). I'm looking for a little advice from successful professional full time handicapper (which I'll be lucky to find on any covers forum). My goal is to clear $250 a week in the beginning. Here are so questions I have:

What is the best online sportsbook that still is taking bets from US players?

With only a $2500-$3000 on a chasing bets system should I split my bankroll up over several sportsbooks to find the best lines or just stick with one good book?

I'm planning on making at weekly cashouts; which sportsbook would be the most cost effective for weekly withdrawls?

Would anyone advice moving to Las Vegas in order to place bets in Casino's and avoid the hassles of financial transactions via offshore sportsbooks?

BTW: I'm not looking for a lecture on chasing bets. Thanks

iraq dinar investment

Has anyone else heard the sales pitch on the new Iraq dinar? It's simple. Buy Iraq's new money ($700 USD = 1,000,000 dinar) in hopes that the new Iraq goverment can pull together and start to prosper off it's rich oil resoures . It sounds good at first but I'm not sure if the economy will pick up there in the next 20 yrs or not?

Sure bet is Eastern Illinois ML

Sure bet is Eastern Illinois ML

Can't lose with this pick!

-200 is not a great value however if it doesn't win then you chase the bet later!

Florida at Carolina... Why is the pubic heavy on Carolina?

Why is the public leaning so heavy on Carolina at home? Florida has the better record. Logans public is 100% on carolina ML and top 10% here on covers is 76% on carolina ML. I'm looking for more info on why carolina is getting so much action with a worse record.

I'm betting my whole paycheck tomorrow night...

I'm seriously considering betting my whole pay check tomorrow on friday.I understand that's a big money managment mistake but  I work for shitty minumim wage and get about $250. that only about $1000 per month. If I could double up twice... well that would be what I make in a whole month. I've been tailing peoples picks in streak survivor and the top $10 of cappers in the consensus. I've been going about 65% the last few days doing so. Any sure bets for tomorrow night?

input please

Everyone needs to check your covers email for free odd tracker plus promo. This info is sick. It's a free 8 day trial. I'm probably going to pay the $180 per month to continue the service. The info is invaluable!
