Default Billy Walters, get it together.

Billy's "steam" plays are losing steam. Billy's moves, which were creating 3-point middles, are now only creating 2-point ones. If Billy has any empathy for us middlers, who depend upon him for our livelihood, he needs to get together and start generating more "steam" on his moves.

Funny you'd post that after 2 straight up days. Of course, as far as middles go, zippo! And forget about it in the NBA.

You think maybe his outs have been cut down?

Doug, no. If his outs were cut down, it seems like there would be more, rather than less, "steam." He hasn't been doing all that great, so I don't think he's got a problem with being cut off. Bet-out shops love to get his plays early, and even regular book-'em books can benefit from having his plays prior to the DB Screen turning black.

Billy has deals with most of the big books--on and off the DB Screen. He hits them early, and the DB books don't move the number on the Screen until everyone else starts to move their number.

Maybe Billy should send out memos to all his followers when he's making these fake moves and coming back the other side and trying to middle.
Without knowing that, the followers are getting buried and less likely to follow his steam and not as much steam created next time out. Lotsa fake plays lately.

Maybe the books are getting sick of getting killed on th the middles and they are not moving the lines mearly as far as they were before.
