"If it ain't broke, don't fix it," right?

I've listened to feedback from potential members about the #TLMHeatMap monthly rate and I've heard you all loud and clear. As I've mentioned, the membership response far has greatly exceeded my expectations, and I believe it was largely due to the value members found with the $75/month recurring price point.

I've made a decision to continue the $75 monthly recurring rate indefinitely! I hope this will continue to attract new members as we enter March Madness and the MLB season (where the magic of the heat maps began)!

To learn more about the value of the #TLMHeatMap service, please click here.

Additionally, last night I provided all members with an update of a few successful betting strategies utilizing the information from the heat maps. Click here to read the write-up.

As always, if you have any questions, please email support@thelinemovement.com.

Hi everyone,

So last night's top plays went 2-3 and if you're only tailing the top % plays, you're sitting at 4-4 on the week. No harm, no foul but I'm sure you'd rather be in the + as we all would! For new members, from time to time I will send out betting strategies that I'm utilizing based on the information provided in the heat maps. As you can see, even though top % plays were 2-3, I had a pretty solid night as I was able to utilize the information from the heat maps and use it to my advantage.

031715 - Card

For example, knowing that the top NBA ATS play Clippers were a double digit favorite,  I decided to tease the top two NBA ATS plays and ended up working out in my favor. Furthermore, I'm continuing to play my 2-3 team ML parlays of selected favorites in the upper half of the heat maps and it's been paying off. Of course, my entire night wasn't 100% winners as Central Michigan let us down 1H and FG and there are just no words for BYU's epic 2H collapse.

031715 - Card2

Hopefully you can review the screenshots above, compare them to the heat maps (linked below), and understand some of my strategies that have proven successful over the last 30 days.

Hi everyone,

I have received a lot of questions from potential members about what to expect when they sign up for a membership. Hopefully this write-up will answer most of the questions you may have.

First, when you sign up for one of the membership options, you are signing up for access to all of the heat maps generated on a given day. Currently, heat maps are being generated for college basketball ATS/totals, NBA ATS/totals, and NHL totals. Once MLB season begins, heat maps will be generated for MLB sides and totals. Keep in mind that the heat maps were initially created during last year's MLB season and the success of the top % totals (which hit over 60%) were its "claim to fame." This service does not provide "official" picks therefore if you're looking for a service who will provide picks to blindly tail, unfortunately I am unable to help you.

What the service provides is a handicapping tool to assist you in choosing your own plays. Although I track the results of all plays over 57.5% confidence, I do NOT recommend simply tailing all plays over 57.5%. This will account for too many plays in a day and is simply not effective in increasing your overall bankroll. I provide all members with hot trends and betting strategies which have proven to be profitable to myself and my members. If you're interested in what my members have said about the service, click on the details of the following tweet to read the responses. These are unbiased opinions from active paying members.

On the results page, you can find trends of all plays 57.5%+. Please note that the service provides more value than the overall W/L record of all plays 57.5%+. For example, here are the results for the top % play of each heat map from 3/9 - 3/11.

3/9 | 4-1         3/10 | 3-1         3/11 | 2-3         Total | 9-5

You'll notice that on 3/11, top plays went 2-3, however, by using the information on the heat maps and certain proven betting strategies, I was able to come out ahead for the day.

0311Results

In the screenshot above, I reviewed the information on the CBB 3/11 ATS heat map and money-line (ML) parlayed certain favored teams (e.g. Duquesne, Creighton) over 57.5% on the heat map. This eliminates the need to focus on the spread and simply allows us to focus on the team winning outright. It is important not to include more than 3 teams in these types of plays as common sense tells us that the more plays added to a parlay, the lesser the chance of it winning. I've also noticed a trend where if the 1st half of an NBA game looks like it may be going way over, the 2H usually slows down and the under hits more often than not, which is is why I decided to play the Nets/Heat U99.5 2H.

These are just a few examples of the power of the information provided in the heat maps. It is simply not about tailing the ATS/Totals plays. It empowers bettors of all skill sets to analyze trends and make their own bets. If you pick your spots and make the right plays, you WILL be successful long term!

While this may sound intimidating to some novice bettors, I will be there every step of the way to ensure that my members are put in a position to profit on a consistent basis. When new, proven strategies and trends are found, my members are the first to know. I am also available should you have any questions along the way. I want to build a strong, relationship with each of my members so we can increase our bankrolls together one day at a time. Remember, this is a marathon not a sprint therefore there will be losing days. My job is to ensure that we have more winning days than losing ones.

I hope this helps explain the value of the #TLMHeatMap service. If you're ready to sign up, click on the link below :)

Sincerely,
Jacob

Hi everyone,

Here are a few trends and strategies some of my members and I have been utilizing which have made us very profitable since the beginning of the service.

  • Top 5 CBB ATS heat map favorites, play the 1H and if it doesn't win, play the same team in the 2H.
  • Play the 1H CBB dogs over 57.5%. For this trend, I would advise not playing the 2H dog if the 1H doesn't hit as I haven't been presented with enough information to determine whether or not the 2H play hits as high as the trend in the 1st bullet).
  • 2-3 team ML parlays. I have had great success playing (at most) 2-3 team ML parlays of CBB ATS favorites over 57.5% on the heat maps. I advise you to not go crazy with these types of plays and do NOT play more than 2-3 teams but this methodology made today a great day for me personally (see screenshot below). Some people will advise against this strategy so I'm just sharing what has worked for me over the past few weeks.
  • Personally, I'm not afraid to drink the juice (within reason). What I mean by this is that if a team is favored by -2 for example, instead of playing the -2, I might play the ML for -150. I did this with North Dakota St (even though it didn't matter as it won ATS) but this may be something to look into as well. Again, I strongly advise not to play a ML play with too much juice (for example, -200 or above).

Below is a screenshot of a very successful Sat night (3/7) based on following some of the methodologies listed above.

These are just a few examples of the power of the heat maps. There are multiple ways to utilize the information within each heat map other than playing the ATS straight up. As I uncover additional winning formulas, I will be sure to share it with you all. We're in this together!

I would like to start off by saying thank you to everyone who expressed their support and encouragement as I move forward with this new venture. I consulted with a number of my trusted companions prior to deciding to monetize the heat maps and hope you understand that this was not an easy decision by any means. In the end, I wanted to do what's best for myself and TheLineMovement.com brand as I've put in countless hours over the past year towards creating the brand and heat maps, all of which doing so for free.

I have listened to your feedback, mainly surrounding the pricing structure, loud and clear. One of the toughest decisions I had to make when creating the business plan was around pricing. Based on the market research that I performed, I still believe the initial valuation of the heat maps is fair. I now understand that for the market I'm attempting to cater towards, it is a bit aggressive and outside of my target audience's price range. With that said, I have developed a new pricing structure (effective immediately).

Recurring Options
$10.00 Daily Recurring
$30.00 Weekly Recurring
$100.00 Monthly Recurring

Non-Recurring Options
$10.00 One Day Access
$30.00 One Week Access
$100.00 One Month Access

http://thelinemovement.com/membership-options/

As an introductory special and a thank you to all of my loyal followers, I am offering a Monthly Recurring Option for only $75 (25% off the current price and 50% the original price)!

This option will be ONLY available for the next 7 days (expires on February 27th at 11:59PM EST) ($75/mo option has been extended due to the incredible response!) and will be honored for the duration of your subscription, as long as you choose to renew it. You may cancel at anytime.

Again, I thank you for your feedback and helping me improve.

If you have any questions or comments, please let me know.

Regards,
Jacob

The Line Movement brand has grown exponentially over the last 9 months. The inception of the heat maps introduced a unique product to the community that is intuitive, easy to understand, and most importantly, provides value to sports bettors. With that said, after months of consideration, I have made a personal and business decision to monetize the heat maps.

I've decided to monetize the heat maps because I've personally reached a crossroads as far as the time I spend capping and working on the heat maps and needed to make a decision on the future of The Line Movement brand and the heat maps. Those of you who have known me for awhile know how much time I've put into the heat maps since the 2014 MLB season. The compensation will allow me to fund the website maintenance and potential redesign, ensure that I have the most up-to-date data needed to maximize the efficiency of the heat maps, and allow me to go full-scale and truly dedicate the amount of time needed to deliver a consistently high quality sports handicapping tool.

The heat maps factor in various metrics to generate one unique confidence % which determines the strength of a particular side or total. As many can attest, we have seen great success over the past year by relying on the heat map's confidence %s to generate winning plays. This is the perfect time for the maps as we are in the heart of the NBA and NHL seasons, March Madness is coming up and MLB is right around the corner!

I will be providing a unique service rather than just selling plays. As most of you know, the heat maps can be used in a variety of ways. Some of my fellow handicappers incorporate the heat map's confidence %s into their established capping methodologies, giving them a greater edge. The heat maps are also designed to empower, guide, and help the casual bettor simply tail the higher % plays with great success.

Sample Heat Map

CBB Totals 021015

I have put in countless hours to grow my following, build my brand, create and optimize the heat maps, and gain the trust of my fellow cappers and followers, all of which by doing so organically. If you decide to invest in me and the heat maps, I can guarantee you that I will put in the work needed to ensure that the maps are an invaluable tool which will help take your sports betting to the next level.

Over the past few weeks, I have configured the infrastructure of TheLineMovement.com to transition to a subscription-based model and the initial version is ready for launch today. With regards to the price point, I have developed fair and reasonable daily, weekly, and monthly subscriptions based on the current market.

memberoptions

As for #FreeNation, I'm not going to forget where I came from. I do realize that paying for information is not for everyone and therefore will continue to interact with the community as I always do, post plays daily, maintain the Twitter Consensus polls, etc.

I appreciate the support you all have given me thus far and hope that you will continue to support me as I move forward with this endeavor.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out at any time.

Sincerely,
Jacob
