My favorite teams
Post your general betting thoughts in here. Can be wins, losses, news, etc.
You lost it all on one parlay because of one single loss eventually didn't youI once had a 20 day win streak betting college basketball money line parlays long ago. I have no idea if you can even place bets this way anymore. Anyway, I picked money lines on huge favorites only (equivalent to at least -10 or more) and parlayed them daily.
I started with $100 and ended up with a several thousand dollars. I did 2-4 parlays per day, based on if there were any big mismatch games, and I kept betting all the money I built up.
It was a slow climb at first, making something like one fourth of what I put in on a bet. But when the pot grew, that 1/4th or 1/5th cut became very substantial.
There were a couple of days at the end where there was only 1 heavily lop sided game, so I only bet the money line on that 1 game. Even then, putting money on a -1200 team still payed out in hundreds of dollars. I know the risk vs reward is extremely high, but I had the mentality that it was all basically found money.
First rule of betting: never bet on Buffalo. Dorkchop move buddy.I placed bets on the Buffalo Bills to win the Super Bowl in 1991-94. I kept getting better odds each year and who loses the Super Bowl four consecutive years anyhow?
Needless to say...I don't bet on the Super Bowl itself anymore.
Don't you penny bet? lmao i dont even get out of bed for less than 10kJust got back from Vegas. Every sports book on the strip now has the Bears to win the Super Bowl at either 8-1 or 9-1. To put that into context, NE and KC are favorites at 6-1, with the Bears next up.
I went to a sports bookjiofi.local.html tplinklogin is it down off the strip and found a place where the Bears were 14-1, so I put some money on that. Yeah, call me a homer, but it seems like good value considering everywhere else the odds were much lower.
Also, David Montgomery opened at 22-1 to win ROY. Now, he's at 11-1, and it dropped to that number two days ago. Didn't put any money on that, but at 22-1, I think that's good value.
