I watch golf every now and then however have never seen the point of betting on it to make a profit, I would always put my money on Tiger to win at +500 and then end up watching some South African ponce win it at odds of +15000.
I'm aware of the different types of bets that are around in golf but my question would be for a rookie golf bettor, What is the nearest to spread betting and ml betting in golf? and also how do you gauge how a player is performing going into a tournament?
If you see this thread and you're a golf junkie or a regular please chip in, Everyone's opinion will be gold dust because i love watching golf but have no clue how to bet on it and make money.

The hype around this kid is incredible, He has a decent serve and a few flashy shots but he is very average returning serve and very rarely comes out on top in long rallies. My question is if he wasn't Maria Sharapovas groupie would he get the same love? Every time I've seen this guy play a 'big' match he is fallen short, I didn't catch that Djokovic match where he won.
I hate the way commentators talk about his serve as if it's come down from the moon or something, Virtually every tennis player that's half decent has a good serve for pete sake. In my opinion if he were to break up with Maria he would fade into the background, His tennis game doesn't impress me yet, Of course there is potential but every top 40 tennis player has potential.

The guy clearly hates white people, He clearly has been let down sometime during his life by a white person and clearly has not gotten over it. That has built up this incredibly disturbing and obsessive resentment towards white people and has developed this incredibly weird paranoia that whites hate blacks.
All the regular posters on here are aware of his game, Troll the net for some story about a black person being arrested harshly and then use that as a platform to create a thread, Keep bumping the thread to make sure everyone see's it and so on.
From now on if Scalabrine makes a new thread which fits the above criteria can we just ignore it to try and neutralize him, Look at how many of these type of threads he has going in the GD forum right now.
I will bump this thread every so often just to let new posters aware of him, This is no personal attack on Scal because up until recently he was not on a rampage but something has made him go into meltdown recently with this 4/5 thread barrage of anti white drivel.

I didn't see it get reported once yesterday on fox or cnn/bbc, I know there was a manhunt on but that was just as bad of a tragedy.
I saw that video of the dad who was recording the blaze on his phone and then the explosion goes off as he was recording, Some people were reported saying it felt like the end of the world, Just terrible stuff.

If the Pacers were -7 @ Cleveland and won in a rout, The Heat have to be laying -10.5 +, Anything under 10 and the line is fishy imo.
I personally think the Heat win tonight in a rout and then are made -17 faves against Detroit on Friday and end up definitely not covering maybe losing, Streaks very rarely get snapped against good opposition simply because the team on the streak step their game up for example Denver last night.

I was watching one of these call in shows last night where the birds are on the phone to callers and they get requested to shake/move their bits about every which way possible and they have a messaging service down at the bottom of the screen where you can text in your requests etc. As there was this one hot brunette on i kept the channel on for more than the usual and i would say every 4 out of 5 texts were 'hi babe, get ur shoes off for the lads so we can those feet' or ' i bet you have nice feet, any chance i can see them hun', You get my point.
My question is what can be so good about a womans feet??? Bum, Tits, Lips and the holy grail i can understand, But how can feet turn you on??

I just read about this story and i'm struggling to understand how a college football player has to settle for getting a girlfriend off the internet. There's other aspects to the story which have me baffled as well like how do you establish someone as your girlfriend when you haven't met them???? I can understand falling for someone over the internet and saying i'm interested in this girl but how does a mentally sane person label someone my girlfriend when you haven't met them??
What's our take on this story guys, Am i just being a skeptic and does the guy deserve sympathy for having a hoax pulled on him or does this story smell??

Let me go back to the Jovan Belcher story, Reports have come out in the past few days that the reason he went off was because he had doubts as to whether he was the biological father of his daughter. Now you could make the case that there's a gazillion other men out there who have doubts as to whether they are the real father of their girlfriends kid and they don't go off on a killing spree, True but there will have been plenty of minor cases which didn't have as bad an ending as this.
Then I go onto another story, A few months back someone made a thread on here with a link to a story of a man killing his 2 daughters and himself after he and his wife were going through a bad divorce and their were issues over custody. I can't remember the exact details but if i could hazard a guess it was in the Pennsylvania area I think.
This brings me to Lanza, Listening to Fox News today, It says that both brothers took their Parents divorce in 2009 badly and although Ryan hasn't been as badly affected he was still hit by it. Now to Adam, He had multiple personality disorder, Had a loner style life during school and was struggling with autism. However, Of course this is all speculation and guess work but had his Parents not divorced would this of still taken place???
I'm hearing people blame guns and the legality of them in the US, How about we take a look at modern societies view on Marriage and the lack of seriousness in which it's viewed at.
Maybe if we didn't ma... [More]

On your trip to England if i recall you came across an Indian bloke working at a fish market who had a certain song to attract customers and you dropped the link to the youtube page for him singing it whilst at work. Well that Indian guy recently entered our equivalent of American Idol and has launched an o-fish-al version to his song, It's been all the rage apparently and has a shot at being number 1 in the charts for xmas. I turned on the music channels today hoping to see some Black chicks shaking their butts in a hip hop video but since the hip hop channels were filled with egotistical, paranoid, shallow Black dudes just yapping away the usual rubbish, I switched over to the mainstream music channels and there was your boy Lol.

What a mess this has become, I thought the whole fiasco with Gaddafi in Libya was madness but this just takes the michael.

Errm they blew a 10 point lead because the offense couldn't get a first down and because Calvin Johnson had a Calvin Johnson moment, The defense is not your problem Andy, It's your offense, wow, I thought their defense was on the verge of being elite this year.

Every game is offline at pinnacle, OTB.
I hope there's no bullshit talk about calling this weeks games off or something.

Joe Philbin icing Nick Folk only to see it get blocked and the next try is good.

I owe you an apology, I made a prediction, Acted like a bit of a prick in the process and although Arsenal didn't win like you said, I clearly said City would win and they didn't, They have a lot of issues to resolve which I over looked because of the glitz and glamour of the team profile.
I don't expect you to accept it and be my best friend now, Just don't want to be a guy that makes predictions with other posters and when they go horribly wrong, Hide into the night.

I'm going to make these break down threads because instead of carrying these ideas and info inside my head and then come Sunday morning with a few line moves here and there, Doubt creeps into the mind and I end up making last gasp poor bets.
The Vikings have been good so far, They have played two tough matches and gone 1-1. Christian Ponder has been very good so far, People can ignore this Vikings team all they want but if Ponder can stay interception free they will play a lot of teams close. The other factor that the Vikings have going for them is that defenses won't give Ponder respect, The game plan will be to stack the box to contain Peterson and force Ponder to throw it and until Ponder has 2/3 consecutive good performances teams wont shy away from that. The Vikings defense has played the run well and been average against the pass.
The 49ers have started the season off well, They played the Packers and kept them honest mainly because the Packers don't have a go to guy, They did not have to take anyone away, Just played them honest. They then played the Lions and contained Calvin Johnson, It also helped that Stafford had an off night. Played the run game honest and contained Calvin Johnson, Hence why the Lions had to settle for 4 field goals. The 49ers offense has improved in the passing game and they still the run the ball effectively.
What will the 49ers defense take away from the Vikings offense??? The short passing game with Harvin or the run with Peterson???... [More]

I have a day off tomorrow so I've been up till around 4am studying this game, First off does anyone know if or where can i find ats stats for a side winning a game from a 7 + deficit in the 4th quarter then having to go on the road the next week? I know the argument Giants backers will use is well it was only a come from behind victory against a nobody team in the Bucs, It's not like it was the Eagles or Cowboys, The Giants won that game giving everything they had, They went ahead 34-27, Then Tampa Bay answered right back and just would not be put to bed.
Bradshaw being out is not that much of a big deal, He certainly hasn't been running like Emmit Smith of late so any back they slot in can do just as good a job as he would, However Nicks being out is a big deal. The Panthers secondary has been okay this season but with Nicks being out they can now double team Cruz and play one on one with the other receivers, So as long as Martellus Bennett doesn't shred the Panthers I struggle to see how they put up 24 + points in this game. You also have to factor the short week which always forces the road team to start out sluggishly.
If Jonathan Stewart is confirmed to play you can't help but make a play here on the Panthers, Williams and Stewart have had a history of running on this Giants defense. The other thing that should help the Panthers run game is the fact the Giants will have to leave more men in coverage to compensate for the secondary issue... [More]

Ravens ML, The line for this game prior to last week was -3.5, After the Ravens impressive performance on Monday night the line opened up at -1 -120. A line never gets bet down after 1 result that much unless there's a reason, And that reason is this Ravens team maybe the one. The other factor that helps the Ravens here is if they take a 7-0 early lead and then the Eagles can't reply quickly enough expect those impatient Eagles fans to bring out the boo's, That will help settle down the Ravens defense and could force Vick into some bad throws. Had the Ravens beat the Bengals 44-13 in Week 9, I may of thought about playing the Eagles but it's far too early on in the season for let downs and look ahead situations.
Giants -9, When Tom Coughlin gives 1 word replies in his press conferences you better believe he is angry and want's a better display out of his team. Extra days to prepare, No travel and I have the best QB in the league on my side, Yes please. The Giants defense will look to have a better game today and I think there's a good chance they hold Tampa Bay to under 17 points. I also don't see how the Giants get held to anything less than 24 points, This will be a close cover imo but I'm hoping the rub of the green goes my way.
Redskins -3, I think it's a little too early to fade RGIII, Let him win a couple games, Then hope that the Redskins are -9 favorites against some mediocre team at home and bet the dog on the ML at +300. The Rams have a good ... [More]

Chicago + 5, You want to win the division Chicago??? Go win tonight and you put yourself in the driving seat and then some. Not only will you increase your chances if you beat the Packers tonight but next week they're on the road to Seattle where they will be -5/6 road chalk and we all know those type of games can easily end up springing a surprise so 0-2 could turn into 0-3. A win tonight would be such a mental boost for the Bears tonight, If the Packers win, Normal programming resumed but if the Bears win, You could be looking at a 9-7 year for the Packers at best.
Jennings out is not a big miss but the Packers dont have balance and no matter how good your QB is, You need balance. I think the Bears score 23 + tonight so whether thats a 24-27 defeat or a 27-17 win for the Bears i think they have enough offense and enough defense to keep this game interesting.

I had a terrible day yesterday, Went 3-2 could of easily gone 5-0, If I don't go 2-0 tonight I've had a mediocre week, Thank God for the Thursday night game between the Bears/Packers.
Ravens -7, I love the Ravens no huddle offense, Having seen it twice in preseason I was very impressed. Flacco has become an elite QB imo and the Ravens D may not be the defense of the Siragusa days but compared to most modern day defenses they are right up there, San Fran probably with the best. I'm not a fan of Dalton and think he was slightly overrated last year, I expect him to be put in his place this year. I don't see the Bengals winning and with the Ravens team total being at 24.5, Which in team totals is a key number, I expect the Ravens to put up 27 + which should be enough to cover the spread.
Chargers ML, The last time these two sides met the Chargers smoked the Raiders, Have the Raiders improved since week 17 of last year?? Not in my opinion. They got rid of Michael Bush, Got rid of a decent coach and brought in a mini-me Joe Philbin to replace him. Rivers knows the Chargers have struggled in week 1 the past few years, I'm more than sure they will be the more motivated team tonight and looking to actually get off to a winning start.
p.s. Jezhead I know you're on the Ravens tonight and have 5U on them yourself.

Had a shocking week 1 of the preseason, Went 1-4 and decided to call it quits until the start of the regular season.
Chicago -9.5, This is a play against the way the Colts will treat Luck in this game, Had Luck been a normal caliber rookie QB they would run the ball and try to limit him from throwing the ball into dangerous spots and make him a game manager more than a regular QB. So if they're going to treat Luck as a normal NFL QB and let him do his thing he will make mistakes at Soldier Field, The weather, The stadium will be pumped up, He will throw an interception or two. I'm counting on the Bears offense to hold their own and with some help from Colts turnovers the Bears should win this by 14 +.
New York Jets -3, If the Jets had gone 4-0 in preseason and Sanchez and Tebow looked like Montana and Manning people would say it's only preseason for fuck sake, So because they go 0-4 all of a sudden we have to ignore the Jets and how good their defense is??? Sanchez actually looked good at times, His receivers didn't help him.
Minnesota -3.5, Ponder has reportedly looked better in camp and more mature, So if Minnesota can play a good game on offense I expect Gabbert to have a Gabbert moment some time during the game and give us the victory.
New England -4.5, Had this been any other team in the league I would of bet on the Titans based on the Superbowl losers trend, But Bill Belichick is a machine and he will be aware of that stat which means extra hard w... [More]

I read Phil Simms USA today page and he said If Eli stopped playing he would be a shoe in to the Hall of Fame and I agree, But it's fascinating to hear so many people disagree.
My reasons are that Eli seems to always step up in big play off games when it mattered, I understand he has a question mark on his regular season performances but if Peyton is one of the greatest of all time and has struggled in the post season where Eli has flourished in I dont get the Anti Eli talk.
Yes or No for you??
