108652503-1 2/11/12 4:01pm $15.00 $445.17 Open 6 Team Parlay
Win 2/11/12 7:05pm NBA Basketball 503 Denver Nuggets +125* vs Indiana Pacers 
Win 2/11/12 7:05pm NBA Basketball 505 Philadelphia 76ers -310* vs Cleveland Cavaliers 
Win 2/11/12 8:05pm NBA Basketball 507 New York Knicks +215* vs Minnesota Timberwolves 
Win 2/11/12 8:35pm NBA Basketball 511 Portland Trailblazers +6 -140* vs Dallas Mavericks 
2/11/12 4:09pm Win 2/11/12 4:05pm College Basketball 581 Maryland (1st 10 min) 1st Half +4½ -110* vs Duke (1st 10 min) 

I have this open parlay going and Lakers ML would stretch it to $625... I know Raptors just beat Celtics the last time they played but Lakers must be pissed off coming off a loss and could not see them falling straight up against the friggin raptors without bargiani. Anyone see an upset brewing? The paranoid conspiracy theorist in me saw the books get buried last night with Kentucky and Knicks and makes me think this is the type of game they'd use to win their money back but probably am just sipping crazy juice.

Its definitely not a lock. After the Knick game, I've come to the conclusion that I cannot fully commit to my Lakers, no matter who the opponent is (except the Bobcats). I only put a small play on the line.

as long as they have seat-belts, the ride would be just fine.

I use 5dimes and I've become addicted to the open parlays on there. The nice thing about them is lets say you only like two games out of eleven one night. you can just put those two in a parlay and it stays open, you can slowly fill up the parlay and take as much time as you want. for the NBA this is a big advantage because the spreads are only up daily not for the entire week. so you can pick and choose your spots. It's also good if you wanted to do a ML parlay and stretch it for two weeks. aslong as you pick surefire teams and get a little lucky better chance of hitting than just betting MLs in one night of action.

But I agree with whoever stated they see a Lakeshow massacre. Especially with Bargiani out. but the Knick game does scare me as well.

I don't see how taking a 4-10 road team that is playing their 6th road game  in a row at -270 makes any sense.

Genius idea by 5dimes.. I bet they are killing it even more on open parlay losses than books normally do. Basically turned a parlay into a streak contest that the bettor will be VERY reluctant to cash before losing it.

You should hedge with Toronto +6.

I'm glad, just know when you need to cash and start a new one. I would say cash this one now. GL.

The way it works and this is in their favor as well i'd say is the one downside to the open parlay is you have to pick the amount of teams you want beforehand. So you have to choose a 5,6 or 25 game parlay whatever it is but you can't close or continue it once that number hits. I did a 5 teamer so this is the last game on it.

It has no heading. just go to put a parlay in and it has a section where it says "Open Spot" so put as many as you want in including your original bet. fill it as slow as you want.
