You won $300 on the Hornets -7 -107.
You never said what price you were laying on the Bulls moneyline, but since you always seem to quote Pinnacle's lines, I'll go with what they had for much of the afternoon, which was -450. So you lost $1,350 on the Bulls ML -450.
You didn't say what price you were laying on the Magic moneyline, but I'll go with -2100 which is what Pinnacle had all day until they crept up to -2250. So you lost $14,700 on the Magic ML -2100.
You lost $700 on the Sixers/Bulls/Mavs moneyline parlay.
You lost $500 on the Sixers/Bulls/Mavs/Pacers/Hornets moneyline parlay.
All told, you waved a mytical goodbye to a mythical $16,958. No problem, though, since you recouped it all by laying -138 on the Lakers moneyline in the late action. That means you - the same man who wagered $108 on the Rockets and $107 on the Bucks just three hours earlier - laid out $23,402.40 on one game to get it all back.
So do I have these numbers right? Are you standing by your claim that you bet approximately twenty-three thousand dollars on the Lakers? Yes or no?
