Always said i could make a living gambling, now i have no choice i lost my job and i have run out of unemployment benefits.  Don't get me wrong i am looking for a job but part of me wants to see how i do with gambling being my only source of income.  Im lucky enough to have some savings so lets see how long it last or how long it takes to have my wife throw me out on my behind

Hey little advice, before you pick up a habit which is probably going to ruin your marriage, blow your savings, and have your wife sucking someone ele's cock while you try to meet up with your bookie every week to pay him or collect same garbage..........wish the best for you.....but come on man, you can't find another habit worth giving it a shot.........

From a message about your kids last night to losing your job today?  What's up?!

Continue the wagering BUT dedicate more time to finding a new job.  Gambling for a living is not for me, you or anybody else on this board.

My only pick today is Washington -135 with Zimmerman over Cahill, Was has lost 4 in a row but they were all on the road and now they get to play in front of their fans and get back on track.  since i'm trying to make a living doing this i'll stay conservative and bet 200, not a bad day's pay if it comes in.

GL to you

I had always wanted to do that but never could with a family. When I retired with a pension 4 years ago I can now devote some cash to it and am having some success with it.

Still I would of never imagined doing it with a family to support plus my wife would of definetly left me.

Wow this is just sad....im sorry to hear that bro and to make a living off this is very hard...you have to put in the looooong hours to research games but If I were going to start I dont think I would do it betting on baseball....it is one of the hardest sports to bet on so I would try finding a new job....If I were you I would track the yankees and research them 12 hours a day and bet on them to win atleast one game each series and once they win one game dont bet on them untill the next series...someone told me they only got swept once or twice last year

Instead of trying to make money off of your gambling... it's better to make money off of someone elses gambling... see if you can book a few people

Well, the avg american monthly salary is about 3500 (42000) - that is about 125 daily he would need to make gambling.  I could do that with ease -  I honestly think I could make a grand per week gambling....

One thing you will learn very soon is that making a living gambling may sound glamorous, but the reality is that it is just as hard a way to earn a living as anything else. No more fun. Work, worry, stress. Disappointment, self doubt, gamble or pay the bills? You may have just jumped out of the frying pan and into the fire.BOL

No hot streak - done it with ncaa fb/nfl/nba/ncaa bb.  Trust me ill be around all season.  Must have a plan and follow the plan no matter what!!!

1:  I group my games in time brackets - ex today 1 card will be 7-9 and card 2  9-close. I want to give myself has many opportunities to make daily profit.

2:  Most of my parlays are 10-50 bucks with 1-2 big parlays per week - trust me when i go big i have no doubts about the teams winning...  NEVER DOUBLE BID....

3:  Tons of research before bed/morning - it pisses my gf off at times but she loves when the dhl guy bring the checks..

4:  Have daily goals - I have helped several friends and their daily goal was to make 50 bucks daily - within one week that's 350.. This is what get many people in trouble because they get greedy - very similar to drug dealers - greedy is the silent killer..

Several more but ill stop..

The problem I have with this post is that you're believing you can make a living gambling in the midst of a two week hot streak. While 6g's in a two week period is solid, I'm wondering if you'll have the same belief once you start your slump that everyone goes through regardless of how many hours of research we dedicate to this hobby.
