I know if you bet team A -6.5 and team B +7.5 in a football or basketball game and it lands on 7... well you hit a middle.

1.  First off, if its a key number like this in nfl, is this an autobet each time?  Thus if u can get -6.5 and +7.5 and pay -110 both sides, auto bet no matter what?

2.  I assume -2.5 and +3.5 is the one that should be auto bet everytime?  Then its -6.5 and +7.5 since 3 is most common margin of victory in nfl, then 7? 

3.  What if its -3.5 and +4.5?  -9.5 and +10.5? 

4.  Is it even worth it if its -10 and +11?  Or -3 and +4?  That isn't exactly a middle of course but if that team wins by 10 or 11 or in other example by 3 or 4, well you push one bet and win the other bet. 

5.  What sports would doing this be worth it the most?  I assume NFL is obviously 1st.  Then its probably NBA?  Then college football and then college basketball?  I know key numbers in college football don't matter as much as in the NFL.

6.  I assume doing any of these bets are worthwhile if one of the books you are trying to clear rollover or bust?

If you find that many middles you have a luxury problem, where do you get them all?

I bet on every single middle I can find, every time, all the time.  Nothing to lose, everything to gain.

Nothing to lose
If you can choose from different lines (ex. you can place arb +2,5 vs -2,5 or middle +3 vs -2,5), than when placing a middle you lose arb's %. You have to decide what is more profitable in longer run.
