Plays posted in the morning

I will probably not make any picks until the morning from now on so I can get both 5in and game lines. This means that we will miss out on the overnight reduced juice from 5Dimes.

Or if someone can tell me where US customers can get 5in overnight lines then I will be able to post as usual.

Superbook.com and Sportsbook.com

I am pleased to announce that I have been able to add SuperBook and SportsBook.com to the list of books that I will be line shopping at with my spreadsheet.

SuperBook and SportsBook.com have the same lines so I will only list one of them after each pick. I have an account at SuperBook and have had a great experience there. I have requested 3 payouts (only one deposit) and each one has arrived at my house in less than 3 business days via FedEx.

I am also working on a bonus program for those who want to open new accounts at Bet Jamaica, 5Dimes, Superbook, or Sportsbook.com . If you are interested, please contact me via email at mail@puresabermetrics.com
