LedZeppfan77 Posted February 20, 2013 Share Posted February 20, 2013 I have been doing very well over the past year. In fact when my friend told me to ask for my kickback for gamblers insurance, I had nothing coming like he did. He got a $350 free play for the percentage of his losses. But he is the type that cannot stop when he makes a hit. If he has $300 he is going to whack it. You must have self discipline. If you play two and three team parlays, you can lose three and win one and you still come out ahead because of the payoff. In hockey, if you lay a goal with two teams the pay off is fabulous. Of course many times you must count on open netters. Last night in basketball I posted a trend bet and it won. Milwaukee had beaten the Nets 12 straight. They had covered 13 of 16. So I jumped on Milwaukee with the 5 1/2 and won. They lost the game by two pts. In a situation like that its wise to also bet them on the money line as you get something like a plus 160. I took the Canucks/Chicago game over 5 1/2. To me a cinch. When it comes to betting the worst sport in my opinion is football. That is the sport that will kill you. And its the one that takes the most action. In baseball if you know your pitchers you can make money. But its done on a "dime" wagering system. Odds. Money lines rather than point lines. I know a guy that plays online poker and spends most of his waking life doing it. Now that is bad. he plays the change games and he can play with a twenty dollar bill for a month. He is basically just doing it for entertainment. I fall somewhere in the middle. I just made a withdrawal and they took me for $20 not telling me about the fee because of the limit on withdrawals. So a friend told me of another site. They take lottery for all 50 states. And they pay out higher than the normal odds. And you can bet a quarter. So today I played NY, Oh, Il, Pa. A couple of 3 and 4 way numbers st and boxed. Horse racing still is the best form of gambling if you know what you are doing. I had a signer last week. Ill have to claim it next year. $833 hit on a dollar bet on a pick four at Gulfstream in Florida. So here's to any of you that do take an occasional shot. Today is not a very good day, but Ill go light. Will take the Blues in hockey. Will take the Penguins and Flyers to score over 5 1/2. And in the NBA I am going with Indiana on the money line. I took Charlotte (probably nuts), the Dallas Mavs minus 10 1/2 and Ill but up to plus 5 and take the Houston Rockets over OKC at home. Hoping they will put up a fight as they have played well and OKC may be reeling from that disappointing performance vs Miami? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
