Degenerate gambler thread

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.

 

Other than the horses, I'm not much of a better. But I virtually NEVER bet on a Bills game (for or against). Too hard for me to separate head from heart.

I had Titans ML, over 46 (HOU/PIT), over 47 (LV/NE) and Bengals +5.5 in a 10.5/1 4-fold.

 

I would happily give up my winnings to get back the time I spent watching the Bengals/Eagles OT.

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

I was actually more confident in Atlanta than Pitt this morning. Good thing I didn’t change my bet.

BUF -122 

NE -6 and -5

Live bet o47 in the Bears games when they went down 16-3 (new principle play whenever ATL has a 2 score lead)

CHI +4

GB +3.5

 

This is my first undefeated week in a long time, as I got my ass kicked last year. I'm 19-9 on the year, and now that I know this thread exists it'll be even more fun, at least until I get smoked by the House. Really like BAL on MNF but the hook sucks so if that doesn't get bet down I'll stay off. Also like u54 but I haven't bet that yet, but probably will.

Absolutely a pitfall, but I've won some good bets with the Bills this year because they were undervalued by other bettors. 

 

I have sworn off parlays and have discovered the world of player props.  Take the Jets game for example. The O/U for Diggs receptions was a stupid low 3.5. Who in their right mind thought Diggs would have fewer than 4 catches against the Jets? Boom, easy money. Same with Josh Allen O/U 1.5 TD passes.

 

Here's one from yesterday: Singletary receiving yards: 19.5. Again a no-brainer. He ended up with 50. Now that the Bills and Allen are the darlings of the NFL it's going to be tougher to find those gems. I did lose on the Diggs O/U. It was 4.5 and he only got 4 receptions. Damn penalties.

Those that took the Josh MVP plunge, JA's stellar play and the schedule looks favorable.  With Cam2x, Wilson and Mahomes on the schedule and 3 maybe 4 primetime games in December, there will be opportunities to make a definitive impression on voters.

And that is why I don't bet on sports!

That's why the officials have that huddle after a penalty is called...Vegas calling them to say which way the foul favours the bookies.  😁  (Communication capabilities courtesy of the New England Patriots Electronics Department.)

Degenerate gambling Thursday is here!

 

I managed to snag the Jets at +3 but I'd still bet them at -1.

 

And a rookie QB is getting his first start in primetime?  Ok then, I'm taking Rypien over 204.5 passing yards and over 0.5 INT.  I have no confidence in the Jets secondary so the yards will be there I think but Greggo should be able to give him some fits and force him into bad mistakes.

I like the Jets getting points (+2 1/2) in the pool I'm in, but then I realize how thoroughly they got beat by what was essentially the 49ers cheerleading squad, and then two pick-sixes against the Colts, and I feel like the players realize if then can tank another game or two, they can finally get rid of a coach that no one likes.

 

That's not sound gambling practices, I know, but I'm not sure everyone appreciates just how bad the Jets are this year.

 

That said, the other game I like which also adheres to poor gambling practices is Texans -3 1/2 vs. Vikings, simply based on the idea that there is no way the Texans are going 0-4. They need to kick the crap out of someone, and the Vikings should be that someone.

I’ve got a parlay 

Bills -3

ML Ravens

ML Rams 

40 to win 101

Betting the road team at -3 is one of the biggest no no’s there is when betting the NFL.  I think we’re a good bet at -3 but Vegas usually has something up their sleeve when a road team is -3.  That’s the upset special more often than not.  
 

that bet is 40 to win 61 plus your money back.

 

edit:  just noticed that the bills are -3 @EVEN instead of the normal -110.  Which means?  Vegas is begging you to take the Bills

People said the same thing about the Texans last week :lol: I wouldn't be surprised if HOU is the team trying to get rid of a coach that no one likes.
