Sports Betting 2018 

Post#1 » by AussieBuck » Tue Oct 28, 2014 10:31 am

Time for a new one of these.

Turns out after loading up the old sports betting site I had $5.72 left. :lol: So I've got $5 on Houston to beat the Lakers by 11+

I'd love to have the kind of money and patience to bet on some of the team win totals. Minny over and Lakers under are the two best free money bets out there IMO.

i did bovada for a little while until it came time to pay me then all of a sudden "my address wasnt valid" and it "didnt pop up on google maps" it took a few phone calls and a little yelling at them to send me my money. the bank also looked at me weird when i went to deposit my $300 winnings from a 3 team parley. Later i found out they were having checks bounce. so i havent used them since. it was a fun time while it lasted

Uh oh gonna give me the itch to get back in. Wish we still had that original thread from like 7-8 years ago to relieve the wave of emotions, haha.

What is even a good site to use anymore? I know I started with WSEX and move to BetCris but alot of those started getting shut down. I think I ended up with Bookmaker's European site or something, lol.

I've been on Bovada for about 4 years now and have had no issues. I receive payouts in less than a week and have had no issues depositing those checks.

I always forget that you guys aren't allowed sports betting. So odd.

I'm allowed. I just don't do it.

I've been tempted, but I have a constant reminder just looking at the skyline of this town. It wasn't built on winners.

busted my carbon poker acct in the 1st week of nfl football. tried to reload for nba, but they denied my card.

tried bovada as well, and card was denied.

i like betting nba, but its too difficult to get money online these days.

stupid DOJ and that god damn black friday thing screwed everything up.

Bookmaker and 5 Dimes are the best sites to bet on.

Bookmaker is a rock financially and the only site that allows professionals to play.

5 Dimes offers reduced juice.

Anyone participate in one of the daily leagues? Either DraftKings or FanDuel?

I started on wsex years ago and really liked that site. Easy payouts and was also to make good money playing free rolls in their poker area. I use betus.com now and haven't had any troubles in a couple years.

$5 on Indiana -7 and Bulls -4 pays $18.24

I also loaded on another $100 for the season and put $50 of it on Dallas for the title paying $1700. :D The only way I can do long bets is if the odds are great.

I have done very well on Fanduel, just start out slowly is my advice. Shameless plug but my referral name is emoney1214.

Got on Rockets today (how many people are going to load up on 10+ for Lakers this year), got the spurs 1-10 and lost on NO 1-10. Tomorrow I'm on the bulls as well -4, rockets -3, and a small hope bet on philly 1-10 considering the injuries to indy.

What is the Sports betting situation in the US? is it really just via Vegas? seems strange as an Australian that they would limit betting over their.

Regarding FanDuel, I usually only do the Double Up or Triple Up games, but it's fun.

Ugh, I made a rookie mistake last night. Did a parlay with Dallas and New Orleans, but decided to take Dallas straight up instead of +3.5.

This was one reason I ultimately stopped. Back in the day I used Neteller and then USA couldn't anymore. Then I'd just use a credit card but then it became a crapshoot finding one that wasn't denied. Ultimately just wasn't worth the hassle. And with credit card I kinda felt uncomfortable pencil shading my credit card to get my withdrawl, lol - although never did have an issue.

Nets + Bulls -4.5 + GSW -4.5

$5 pays 37.39

I love gambling at the start of the season.

The Bulls game should be interesting with guys like Dunleavy and McDermott possibly being matched up on Melo. I think the Knicks have a legitimate chance.

I think Melo is all they have and he'll only be a factor if he's really lighthing them up with his jumper. The Knicks bigs are going to get straight murdered IMO. The Bulls are just going to beat up on teams with their size.

They definitely should kill New York on the glass at least. I'm not sure any of their bigs can just get the ball and score though besides maybe Gasol. Rose should dominate though.

I'm curious to see how Chicago plays this year. Depending on the lineup they roll out, they can speed the game up and just light teams up offensively, or they can slow it down and play amazing defense. I want to see if Thibs takes advantage of that.
