    Default Should I be using Locals?

    I am a $100u bettor who uses 7 of the more reputable offshore books. Should I be looking into locals or ride out the offshores until by unit size and BR grow out of them?

    Thank you!

    you should definitely be using local pph operators. make sure you vet them thoroughly - lots of scum out there.

    Are there any nationwide reputable ones to start on? or I have to know somebody? What are the pros/cons of locals?

    You stand a much better chance of getting stiffed with a local than a sportsbook. If you are a $100 bettor and have a chance of winning, you will also probably do better with an offshore getting overnights.

    I have never bet with a local but have used some local services for contests and they have what I want to bet juiced all to hell 100% of the time.

    are you consistently beating the closing line? Most offshore will have an issue with you crushing the lines but not winning, probably the only way to get blocked but more than likely they will just put strict limits on you but if you are betting $100 bucks a game I dont think you got too much to worry about honestly. I think they get a little more concerned around the 5K per bet mark and not just winning you got to be crushing the lines consistently.
    I also never have heard of anyone having any issue with Pinnacle, I use them they have great lines and great limits. The only issue is I am a very weak capper so I have to get on lines as early as possible to have any hope, so I do BOL a ton and catch pinny early at the 1k to 3k mark because if I wait any longer I cant consistently beat the lines. BItcoinrush is another great option and they have identical pinny pricing and I never have had a withdrawal issue and apples stay apples unlike pinnacle where they convert BTC to USD and convert back USD to BTC upon withdrawal. Good luck I would not get too worried yet until you get the bet size up a bit and then maybe take precautions also make sure if you got enough you care about that you can meet KYC/AML for the book, IOW dont give them BS info when you signup that you cant verify somehow.
