I hit a triple digit bet on LSU covering 4.5. Only problem was I missed many other side bets that cut that win down to around 30 bucks. :shrug: Also lost track and stupidly had the Lightning puck line as the center piece of several parlays. All I had to do was take them ML and my trip to Vegas I just booked yesterday was all but paid for

Oof that's the worst...I've gotten better at spreading parlays around and then under-carding with quality round robins...

Except last night...but I had the potential to win ~$3,500 (on a spectrum, where it's not completely binary) in exchange for like $60...I'll take that given what I know about the NHL...

I went 2 for 4 on my championship game bets but lost money because I put the largest bet on Clemson covering. Other bets were the over 65 which hit (which I was freaking out about during the first quarter), Etienne over 93 yards which lost (looked good up until the fourth quarter) and Lawrence under 51 yards rushing which won (though even on the final drive he was trying his damndest to make me lose the bet)

You don't get rich by not betting...that's how. It's super simple.
I...I think you might have a gambling addiction...

Yeah put a sock in it MIMH.

Had a couple dart throw wins last night that you swear never happens when you're cursing the gambling Gods. I'm sure I'll forget all about it by the time the NFC championship game rolls around Sunday. But Sid at +1150 as the games first goal scorer and 1st period predicted score of 2-1 bruins netted me over 200.00 on a $10 investment. I deserve it tho as the night before 2 goddamn top 10 CBB teams lost to unranked opponents.

Ooh, I like that...nice work. Sid first goal was +1150 on it's own? Or was it somehow in conjunction with the 2-1 Bruins thing? Because that sounds like a ridiculous parlay...like at least +7500 haha

Been ice cold in hockey recently, so I worked with a co-worker to get soccer action...hit a custom bet of Dembele first goal and Lyon to win 2-1 in some French League action at +3000. Got the clincher on a PK in the 93rd minute...that's livin right...

Had a nonsense parlay of: Preds +1.5, Habs +1.5, #11 Oregon (NCAAB), Raptors ml, Barcelona ml (soccer), and the Coyotes ml...go 5 for 5, and the Yotes then blow a 2-1 lead with 3 minutes left and lose in OT to trash that for me...still up for the day, but could have been up better without that bad break...

Least the Sabres didn't fool me again, and they won't for the foreseeable future...

They've been hovering in and around first place in their garbage division for much of the year...it's a good team. It took a late bad penalty call and missing OEL for two-thirds of the game for them to blow it...I like that team actually...but yeah, I mean, they were playing their third string goalie too, so...

I love the super bowl because I let myself make a ton of (low amount) prop bets

Went "big" on the Niners to cover +1 ($50) and then did 10 or so $5 props including but not limited to:
- Kittle over 6 receptions
- Kittle over 68 yards
- Lebron more points (on Super Bowl Sunday) than Mahomes completions
- No team will score 3 unanswered times
- Tevin Coleman under 6.5 attempts
- Damien Williams under 81 total yards
- Trump congratulates the winning team on Twitter

I let myself get addicted to betting college basketball. What an absolute wreck. A few weeks ago like 4 top 10 teams all lost in the same week, Auburn twice in a span of 4 days. Past two nights I missed a 6 team parlay by 2.5 pts.. an 8 point fav ended up winning by 7 and had another game decided by multiple technicals.

I'm all in on Detroit tonight...Jimmy Howard is nails in MSG...I'm disappointed that Wings ml is only +175...but I have a slew of other things to boost the value (Wings and under at +650 for instance)...go Detroit, for the first time ever...get that 5th road win before February!

I heard that Mahomes running around and losing 12 yards per kneel down cost folks his rushing total over bet. :lol:

Yeah, one of my friends got burned on that. I didn't. My bad breaks were probably Blake Bell somehow catching a pass (unbeknownst to me) for 9 yards when I had Robbie Gould kicking points as the higher total...lost that 9-8.

And the 49ers taking the ball and jamming it right up their hoop with 90 seconds left in the first half...as my only real outcome bet was 49ers 1st half/Chiefs win at 7:1. Instead I made it back on live betting the Chiefs at 13-10 SF and then once again at 20-10 SF.

Also, Mostert not going off gave me my biggest win of the day - Derrick Henry most playoff rushing yards at 11:1.

*scratches neck frantically a la Tyrone Biggums*

Belarus league playoffs...Yunost Minsk -1.5 is the pick. Of all the leagues I've seen, I've never seen a Belarus League game, but I've heard of three players on Yunost and zero on [other team]...Yunost is up 3 games to 1 and would love to put away [other team] with authority to advance to the championship round. Go Yunost Minsk at noon ET today.

4 for 4 betting on HC Yunost in a Belarus hockey. They won the championship today in OT. Now, hockey is over.

After a month of saving money by not making any bad bets cuz there were no games to bet on, I have gone down the road I thought I’d never return to again.

Opened a TVG account on Saturday. We’re playing the ponies, baby!
