Sports Bettor Arrested

Recommended Posts

Ben Parlay Patz was arrested for threatening four Rays and a Sox player after their July 20 2019 game. Said he was going to behead them and their families. Sox won the game. From Yahoo Sports. This is going to be fun. Other sports were involved.

Sox won the game 2-1 at the Trop behind a ninth inning solo HR by James McCann off of Emilio Pagan. Lucas had a fine 7 IP effort giving up a HR to Avi.

Another "fake" winner the media plays up with irresponsible stories. 

A couple points:

1. No one betting 3+ team parlays - in this case 10 team parlays - is a successful gambler. He may have gotten lucky and hit a couple big ones, but once you get past 3 team parlays the hold becomes so much that you can't overcome it. You are better off betting every game individually - that is a much more profitable endeavor in the long run, and is just one example that this kid is a loser.

2. No true winner in that world is public about their endeavors and successes; even the ones you hear about are after years and years of being originators and market setters; not after a couple years betting big and shitty parlays. Once you speak up, you are at risk of giving up the small edge you found.

3. The media constantly cites players "winnings" without accounting for any losses. This kid became famous because Darren Rovell wrote about him constantly. Rovell was basically a walking mouth piece/hype man for the guy without knowing it. All of these guys who look for public attention beating that market are full of shit. 

4. If you are a legit originator/market setter, you have been booted/kicked out of 99% of sportsbooks and are forced to use beards to place wagers for you and etc. You do not go out in public talking about how great you are.

5. If you are very very good at this, you're looking at a 3-5% ROI over millions and millions wagered; you are not winning 30-40-50% like all these fake clowns claim. The sportsbetting market has a lower ROI than the stock market/investment world because of all the hoops above; the only people modeling and beating that market do it because they enjoy it, and they enjoy the challenge. If you can model to beat that market you can model to beat any market. 

This kid is a fake clown that Darren Rovell played up - likely the kid of some rich people - and got national attention and then harassed and threatened people giving gambling a bad name... Fuck him and Fuck Darren Rovell.

Having been in that world for a few years out of college, there are a ton of scumbags and scammers everywhere; poker and sports betting wise. People who sell picks are criminals and should be treated as such as well.

I feel like the Sox run into the most bizarre off stories (on and off the field) more than any team haha nothing negative against the team but definitely strange ones.
