Degenerate gambler thread

Recommended Posts

I’ve been playing parlays for quite a few years now and want to know some others who do.

Ive taught my son [24] the ins and outs and we have fun playing together.

Our rules:

1. Never more than 100$ a week

2. Never chase

3. We must both agree on the picks no matter what.

4. Always cash out winnings!!! Never let them

sit or you will spend it.

 

One of our friends works in Vegas and we have an account set up at ceasers.  This is week 3 and vegas gets smart with lines. 
Don’t like anything this week. Too many either or games and colts/jets line is ridiculous.

Probaly tease the colts to -6 with the packers to plus 9..

Love to hear some great stories. My best was 

Giants moneyline against Pats in 07. Only time I bet against belichek. He is a gamblers nightmare

I've been going to Sportsbook at the Seneca Creek Casino downtown and betting on 4 team parlays this season. $10 each time, 3-1 both weeks so far. This week:

 

Minnesota +3 vs Tennessee

Washington +7.5 at Cleveland (I almost bet the moneyline on this one on a bigger separate bet)

Carolina +6.5 at LA Chargers (Panthers cost me my parlay last week, hopefully I don't regret it again)

KC +3.5 at Baltimore

I sprinkle in a little bit of everything each week. I start with a bankroll and bet a percentage each week. I actually have my bankroll divided up into four pots. "Super picks", Parlay's (3TM) , Teasers(6TM 6Pts) and All 256. My goal is to see which one works best for me.

 

So far on the season I am 18-14-1 picking all the games. 6-6 on my Super Picks. 0-2 on the teasers and parlays. 

 

Last season was my first real season betting on games. I had massive beginners luck starting the season 14-2-1 (87%). I ended up finishing 48-32-3 (60%). 

 

I agree this week looks quite a bit tougher picking that the first two weeks. But then again I only managed 6-6 on my super picks the first two weeks. Cowherd is 4-6 I think in his Blazing 5. Just pick the upset of Cowherd. 

 

My parlay this week is Patriots -6.5, Colts -11.5 and Cowboys +5

Nice start.

 

Do you know how you did last year?

Dolphins were the lock.   

 

I usually favor the dogs but for some reason I didn't have a feeling on that one. Went Jags just because they were at +100 odds and Dolphins were at -120.

 

Dolphins definitely look like a much more capable team now when you look at all three of the games they played. Their defense against the Pats was actually not bad when you see that Newton almost put up 400 on Seattle through the air.

I bet the packers several times this week thinking adams would play.  I’m scurred now.  I teased the colts to 5.5.  
 

rule 3 sucks- bet what you like. 🤣  I go over all of my bets with my buddy.  One of his picks of the weeks last ween was Detroit +7 @ GB.  GB -7 was my pick of the week.  Glad I didn’t listen to him.  

 

Ahhhh, that 07 was a great day.  Made a killing on that giants money line too
 

Today, I like:

 

niners over 41.5

Falcons. -2.5 -115

cowboys under 56.5

 

i have several 8 team teasers, many include:  

the 3 above games

skins

texans

colts

packers

packers under

bucs

cards

Pats

chargers

cowboys
chiefs under

Adams would make the Packers a lock to win IMO. But I still like GB here. I have them as one of my super picks. But not in my parlay. Saints rely on that crowd noise more than most teams IMO and that won't be there. Or will it now that they removed the dB limit? Not sure how that will work? But still Saints are likely without Thomas still right? And GB has a pretty good ground game. 

 

If I can get an elite QB on a good team getting a FG or more in a game that looks like a toss up I usually sway that way. Took KC and the points for that reason too.

I’ve been betting for years mostly nfl and the horses. Table games blackjack and poker. Luv 3card and Caribbean . Took a beating at saratoga this year on the ponies . 
its my only vice. Made plenty of money I hate to say it against the bills but a ***** coach always loses

this year its gase, Quinn and Patricia . Don’t like Lynn either. 
mcdermott is a great coach and made plenty of cash with them the past 2 years. Especially the Pitt game.

this year we are parlaying the packers whenever we can. Rodgers is pissed and on a 

mission

I like doing a 2-team teaser with a 1PM and 4PM team.

Then, if you hit the 1PM leg of it, you bet the same amount AGAINST the 4PM leg.

That way, you either double dip (if you hit in the 6 points "in-between"), or you break even.

You could even "hit a post" and push one and win the other.

It is a bit of a "hedge" but you don't have to sweat anything, and you have a chance to win. Just need to win that first game (with the tease points).

Depending on the line of the 2nd game, could consider the money line instead.

I put $25 on Pitt(-4) to cover....thought about doing parlay with them, Atlanta(-2.5), and Carolina(+6.5) but didn’t pull the trigger..... I really do like Atlanta today. Actually like their chances better than Pitt.

Pitt won’t even win... Texans cannot go to 0-3.

My best bet was taking money line Bills +950 against Vikings (2018).

 

Go Bills!!

I usually only bet on the Bills if they are playing Jets or Dolphins.  If that's not the case I'll sometimes put money on Bills touchdown scorers.  Missed today with Singletary, Gabe Davis and Yeldon.
