Sports Betting Thread

Recommended Posts

 

I don't gamble on sports outside of confidence pools & fantasy football. And both things have made me like football much less.

 

I can't even imagine betting on some of these events you pick. This thread is fascinating.

 

Good luck. I think I'd go crazy with the ups and downs you have.

I'm glad some of you are enjoying it. For a while I felt it would be annoying to posters but I have received some good feedback so far. I'll keep going until I get shut down :)

Do you do research on things like Australian baseball? Or are you just winging it sometimes?

I absolutely do research before I place my bets.

Can't believe you guys are spending all this time arguing about Joakim Soria. Lol.

Kagaku, you betting on either of the NFL games today? If so, mind sharing your picks?

What do you like about the Titans?

 

For me it's more about the line than the Titans. The Chiefs don't really blow out teams, they beat them by a score. The playoff atmosphere is intense, and with that I see a low scoring game, (13-21 Chiefs) or something along those lines.

I think the Falcons have value. They have playoff experience while the Rams do not. They are the defending NFC champs. I wouldn't take them straight up but the line was 6 when I last saw it. I could really see if the Falcons lose, it's by a FG otherwise they will win outright.

I took Chiefs - 3 1/2 @ -250.

 

If you take that line at that price, you should just take the Titans to cover.

Taking Falcons +6. Falcons are battle hardened.

 

Bovada had the better line! Even money $100 to win $100!

Why?

 

Because that is some serious juice you are throwing at that line. You have to bet $250 to win $100. If you lose, that is is a significant hit. You say Titans to cover instead, you lose 110 versus 250.

I think because you had to cover the hook at that price, he thought just taking the Titans with the points was a better proposition.

Ok here's a synopsis of the day.

 

Both later NCAA games went over

Falcons covered

 

New Zealand Breakers covered

 

Kings/Nuggets did not cover =( and literally by a hair.

 

YTD 19-16-1 +$1002.40

 

Yay for the 1k mark only six days into the year! :wub: :wub: :wub:

Bills +9. Both teams inexperienced. Jags are pretenders. I was tempted to take Bills outright, but this is the safer play.

 

-120 ~ $120 to win $100
