So then do we fade the Bills on Sunday against the red hot Phins?It’s usually ugly play
team A wins 2 weeks in a row scoring over 30 and gives up less than 12, bet against them

Austin, I can see that you are not blindly wagering on a trend / system by your understanding the variables that contribute to the stated systemOhara...
Great feedback to educate me on your terminology of handicapping.
Fully agree with you on there are MANY factors to consider when placing a wager.
There are many ways to slice a pie. As you said "handicapping is primarily looking for line value", I feel the taxi system typically helps get you 'line value'. It's team A that is hot, scores lots of points and gives up very few. Joe public LOVE these types of teams. This 'typically' gives us value to take team B. Let's also include the '3 rule', meaning it's very hard for a team to maintain the same high level of play 3 weeks in a row. That information helps us when a team plays 3 division games back to back to back. They (the team as a whole) typically cannot maintain the same high level of energy, even though they clearly would like to. So I would look at that under the 'scheduling' portion of handicapping.
That being said, the buffelo vs dolphins game does fall into the perimeter of the "taxi system", just not sure we are getting any value in the line considering the dolphins are very hot and will probably be a joe public play. I'm not sure how I'm going to play that game if at all. But will end with this thought:
If you've ever played poker. Seeing a person play a lot of hands and will play ANY 2 cards that come their way. Typically gets the 'good' poker players furious because they (the good poker players) have seen enough stats that say "if you play to many hands you will lose" . But for some reason that player is winning!? Why!?
Because betting isn't an exact science, laws of probability help tremendously, but betting isn't an exact science. If so, we would all be rich.
Hope this all makes sense. I feel bad for not contributing more to EE. It is truly one of the best handicapping sites , especially back in the day .
fwiw...I'm a huge cowboy fan.
Hey MM, you are doing a great job moving our site forward again. I know we have lost a few contributors but I see a lot of new names that hopefully can be encouraged to contribute .austin616...

Yes members move away from forum life & in life in general for many reasons; and particularly Social Media & Covid19 have both put a dent into our forum participation levels and it's popularity. It is my hope and desire to help resurrect some of what we appear to have lost and to create a place where not only our current membership, but new members will join us here at Everyedge and we can once again be a leading resource of handicapping information, of handicappers themselves, sharing our passion for people who enjoy recreational sports wagering.
