    Sports with soft lines....

    What sports do you think have greater deficiencies in the value of their lines?

    Off top of my head id say Aussie Rules Football. So rarely have i seen a sport in which such a disparity lies between the line given by the book and the final game score...

    What other sports do people here find easier tom 'read'?

    In general terms it must be smaller markets. For me it is any domestic competition with local books.


    All of our strictly domestic markets have weak lines but being such a small market the lines are pretty quick to move.

    Relative to the average line, NRL lines are off by more than AFL.

    Baseball in april is ridiculously soft, I play roughly 50% of my entire seasons plays in the 1st month alone.

    NASCAR lines are very beatable if you do your homework.

    Wasn't there a huge multibillion dollar group that was publicized after the fact that (The Computer? The Program?) that would put heavy money on events just for the purpose of shifting the line only to pound it at the number they wanted after they got it to shift? How much do you think it would take to move some of these lines?
