Is it wrong to say fade

another poster here?

Even if they are ice cold and horrible? Even if everyone could make really good money betting against them?

I am trying to be cool but I see money for the people here and it is hard not to post the obvious.

I mean some fade touts, aka lang.

This one seems toutish.

Not sure what to do. This one is like 2-10 or worse on bowl games. Completely missing them badly. It may be even 10 losers in a row or close. I just see the losses over and over. I know the bowl games are tough but is it ok if it just gives an advantage or a reason to search the other team a little more?

CBB is pretty much the same for him.

It just bothers me because this one has been so wrong for so long and for one there is money to be made and for two I worry people may be following some of the info.

What do you guys think? Do I need exact numbers on losses? Maybe he starts winning?

I just want to know the BreakDown on these Plays To Win? I guess everyone can decide for themselves with a little research?

I do like Stanford -4 as a play to win.

It depends if you're "playing to win". You're better than that Mike. Everyone has their runs both good and bad. Just leave it be and focus on yourself. That's all you can do. Best of luck this year and I hope things make a turn for the better for you and your fam.

Just looking for winners is all.

I guess it is best to be quiet? I do not want any trouble. Just want to post winners and I have no clue on CFB this year.

Then maybe you can wait for them to post, then make a post later saying "here's the play". Don't point em out even tho I know who you're talking about.

yeah, if stanford wins though i guess i need to start posting these? i am going to do a record check and see how long term this has been going on and what sports.

I do know most of us would have at least shut it down for a little bit after losing that many. Heck, at least say here I am not doing well at all in college sports and figure out what is up.

I mean no harm, just looking for edges. Seeing the majority of the board on NW and fade me on MISS state set off some flags. Then seeing Stanford as a play for a few excellent cappers and fade me on Wisconsin just got my attention so I looked back and not good.

play your plays mike!

here are the ats bowl results for this
wisc +4 Pending

miss state L
usc L
NC state L
Navy L
Cuse W
BG L
Duke L
w kentucky L

so ats bowls 1-7

maybe not enough evidence but got tired of looking, seems all the losers have been pretty one sided.

Point is, check what he has, look and see if swone, any mike, rdtrains, or anyone i missed has the opposite and maybe at least consider that factor in the rest of your bowl capping. They are hard this year, for me anyways, I have no clue on these bowls. Just saying maybe this will help a little. I would not fade anyone straight up without seeing trusted winners on the other side.

If i sound crazy, ignore me, I am bored and the wife has the tv.

To follow up on that. i see a lot of cappers on a hot streak and I wanna post fade cuzz they are all comin back to close to 50 percent eventually, but I dont..

For instance BNB computer sims went on a 14-0 run... it was inevetiable that pace wouldnt continue

Tex,

I agree with that. I am just talking short term here, specifically bowl games. Maybe he just has a knack for getting them wrong. His other plays seem fair enough. Just saying bowl games only.

Do you agree that if you were 1-8 on bowl games that you might quit posting plays on them or give others a clue that you could not hit them? I know I would and hope others here would as well. Heck, i said it, I have no clue on the bowls. I tried, I failed, a couple losses and I say no clue, this 1-8 and still at it without a warning?
