I noticed when I bet sports, I can call the winner 9/10 times. The problem is covering the spread. I know if you loose, you loose big. Betting on a -800 line will kill you if it is an upset. Has anyone tried sports betting using the ML and been successful? Do you think the strategy to wager less on the spread to win the same amount is better? Is the risk worth the reward? Example: Denver was -700 (ML) vs Titans yesterday. ML $7k to win $1k or bet $1k to win ~$1k on the spread (juice takes out a little).
