Betting Thread
I've recently started betting some just for fun and to make things interesting. I know HotHot bets some from here and things I've saw on Twitter. I believe JD said something about wanting to get into betting some too. So I figured we should have a new thread instead of clouding the UofL betting thread up.

Anyone else bet online? I figured we could discuss betting and who we were betting. I'm just having a little fun with it. 5, 10, 15 dollars here and there.

RE: Betting Thread
i throw a few darts at futures, but haven't really been serious about betting since moving from Vegas. I will throw a little money at something every month or so if it just feels off but rarely bet on college basketball. I won a few hundred bucks on several Clemson football spreads this past season and had a medium bet on Louisville -3.5 over UK as well, which looked like a sure loser early. Ironically, the only Clemson bet I lost was the Louisville game.

When I was in Vegas, I tried every major sport I know and the only ones in which I consistently won were NBA and NCAAFB. I think I won $3,000 the first time I decided to seriously bet the entire NBA playoffs. Used a specific strategy and felt really good about totals that season. Got cocky and lost one of my biggest bets of that particular playoffs when I believe it was the Thunder gave up a huge lead late. That physically hurt me.

RE: Betting Thread
yeah, back when I actually had some money to blow, lol. I remember running cold playing poker on Friday nights that same NBA Playoffs, so I probably lost at least half that playoffs money on 5/10 NL. I kept a hard copy log book of all my bets, I should try to find that.

Louisville currently 25/1 on 5Dimes to win the NCAAT. Great odds, imo.

Too late now but:

Louisville -20.5

Would've had the over myself.

After watching the Broncos D break down Brady and the patriots, I can't bet this game. 6.5 is a lot of points with a game with such a low total.

J. Norwood receiving yards Over 17½
Missed extra point kick
Carolina converts a 4th down
C.J. Anderson rushing attempts over 13½
C.J. Anderson MVP
R. Hillman rush attempts Under 11½

Dammit, I talked myself out of betting on Mike Carey getting a review wrong. 3/1 odds I think, too; lol.

Missed XP: +325 or 3.25/1 odds.

RE: Betting Thread
the bet is whether the CBS rules guy, Mike Carey, predicts the result of the challenge correctly or not. He is notorious for always getting it wrong, apparently. The sportsbook judges each prop bet if any subjectivity is needed. For instance, some books clocked the Anthem at less time than others b/c they stopped it at Gaga's first "brave." This one is more clear. Carey said it was a catch and the refs confirmed the call on the field of incomplete.

cha-ching. Need one more Anderson carry and Hillman to get < 8 the rest of the way to clinch a profit. My Norwood over 17.5 rec yards ticket is not looking good. Only 1 target. Thought they'd target him a few times, especially after his big punt return.

Kansas vs WVU tonight. WVU won at home by 11. @Kansas they're now a 7 point dog. I like that spread. I bet WVU +7 and also WVU on the money line. If WVU keeps it within 7 and loses I'll about break even. If somehow WVU wins I'll about triple my money. Let's go 'eers!

In this season, with 18-year-olds in play, it absolutely can be. Hell, I could see us going to UVa and crushing them. I have zero grasp on 2016 NCAAB.
