e.g. : Bet favorite very early morning at -170. 5 minutes before game time favorite is at -190. So bet dog at +180. Guaranteed money. Or no can do?

Is it guaranteed that the favorite will move to -190? If so then great, you will always win money an every game every time you bet. If there is a chance the favorite will move to -160, then it's just gambling

I thought baseball was generally a 20 cent line i.e. the dog would only be at +170 in the example you gave us?

Pitching changes is another thing which can move the line quickly. That could of course work both ways for you unless you had inside information. There was a time in the past when you could designate who started for the team you bet on. Not sure if that's still the way it all works.

The general rule is 20 cent line, but if there is a very lopsided pitching matchup I have seen it creep up to 40, particularly if the favorite is -300 or more

there are a few books who offer a dime line on baseball. Also on the NHL.

I personally have played dime lines at betonline.ag. Also I see them quoted at covers.com for gtbets.eu, Top Bet, allyoubet.ag and Wynn Las Vegas. Covers is quoting a nickel line for 5Dimes but maybe that is an error. I think dime lines are pretty common for mlb and nhl.

Mr. Tom G makes a good point that you don't know that the line will move in your favor. As an alternative you might pick what you regard as a very strong favorite at about -170 and if the line doesn't go in your favor stay with your bet. A bet that you don't mind making. Yesterday in the Rockies/Angels game the line opened at betonline.ag at - 169 and was then bet down as low as -202 offering you an arbitrage opportunity. But you would have had to have followed the line all day to get a high number on the dog. Around game time it was back down to - 173. Betdna.com had it bet down to -220. Maybe a lot of work for a little money but still its kind of interesting.
