LCK 3-0 @-161 seems like such a weird/awful bet. I mean, you could get ANY of the Korean teams ALONE at better than -161 versus Flash Wolves. None of the three teams would have been a bigger favourite against FW (SKT closed at around +150). You're basically hoping for the best possible match up (KT who would have been the slight favourites), and then, to add to that, you're negative freerolling the two other LMS teams.

It was a bad line but it was also the only offering initially. Even then I still liked it for 5 units. I had more confidence in SKt than you did. Whenever I talk about lines and such I don't go by what the books post I go by how I'd handicap things when discussing line value because I'm co doesn't enough in my abilities to honestly think I'd do it better. Call that arrogant if you like but it's how I operate. This isn't traditional sports and they haven't "solved" or have insider information.

theres no way that line was good, and if you Think it might have been it would be a good reason to have less confidence in yourself.

TL:dr - I rarely give a shit about lines and form my own opinions because I don't trust the line makers (computers) knownwhat they're doing.

yea i saw that, and theres no proffessional sportsbettor who would Believe that on a line like that. if you had that kind of insight as to get those edges you would make tens of millions per year to be conservative
