To know me by now. I always buy the point. Its a no brainer for the most part. Some of the lines may be listed from 2-3 weeks ago when I originally played the game but anytime I can get the benefit of the doubt I do.
As I have always said, baseball we lay -130 or -140 and dont think twice about it. Michigan, Wisconsin are just a couple other games that were benefited by buying the extra point. If the line is on the half I usually buy 1.5 points. If its on the whole I just buy 1 point. Always with the totals and most times with the sides.
And for those that say you are creating too much vig to overcome, think about basketball lines and how often the game comes down to that 1 or 2 points. I dont believe in teasers though since if you are wrong about your pick then you are wrong about the pick and no sense to tease a play that may not be the right pick anyway. imo
My biggest screw ups this bowl season are gonna haunt me though. Minnesota, Georgia Tech, Clemson and Texas A&M we had the right side based on the system and I went the other way. There is not 1 game that I decided to change that worked out in my favor so I guess at some point I need to learn a lesson. If you stuck with the numbers, power rankings and system you would of had an unreal season. And I think we did well anyway.
