Default Another scalp, 11 cents

Wow, now there's an 11-cent scalp:

Kings-Clips

Pinny under 193.5 +121
BetJamaica over 193.5 -110

Is this common w/ Pinny??? Never noticed it this much before...

Pinny just moved it to Under 194 +117...still a scalp, and now a middle opportunity as well!

I've seen them last more than 12 hours - usually this happens when the line(s) for the event in question go up after the last game for the night is off the board (~ midnight Eastern time).

Me too! There is one from last night that is still available 4 hours later. I'm always glad to have help.

are you able to make both bets at the same site at the same time? Like with pinnacle, would I be able to bet both the over and under for $X each? Or do you guys typically find your scalps at two different sites? Thanks

the built-in juice at each site for the same game makes self-scalping almost impossible (unless perhaps you take a lead on the moneyline and hold it). however, side/middling the spread can definitely be done if you are willing to have some degree of risk on each side of the margin.

the reason pinnacle is the best way to find completely risk-free arbs is because they are precise enough to shade prices between point spreads. so when you see them hanging lines that are above +105 or +110 (I got a +121 and a +123 in CBB today alone), they are basically inviting anyone to come in big at another sportsbook's expense. most of the "square" books only move the number, but keep the juice.

I reread the original post and realized that the scalp was at two different sites. I guess that makes the most sense.

When you say you got +121 and +123, are you saying that you took those with the intention of scalping another site later? Or were those just bets you liked?
