I guess I didn't bother to even answer my own questions.
I enjoy betting NCAA hoops and football, MLB, NFL, and the very occasional NBA game or fight (both UFC and major boxing matches). Not an internet bettor which limits my abilities to shop lines for the best value but it makes life easier when getting/giving money.
Have been on and off betting since midway through college about 6 years ago but have really been much more active over the past year and a half. I consider myself a pretty heavy contrarian bettor in that I shy away from heavily public-backed teams and look for value in underdogs or what most would consider as bogus lines.
I'm a big fan of using sports simulations like Accuscore or even DCI/Dunkel to find value in lines and also use Sports Insight to track how the public is betting %-wise. My most useful and favorite site (for NCAA hoops only) is http://www.kenpom.com
Wasn't sure about the interest level here or if this is even the right venue to be posting at but I would be willing to post my picks purely for tracking purposes if anyone was interested. I'd love to start up a hearty betting discussion and/or debate over here.
