|So yesterday I found a sports gambler through a friend and also a customer looking for some action. I only have one active customer right now and he's been paying my bills. So why not get a 2nd one..

This guy usually bets $100 units, up to $500 sometimes. That's the range of most bets I take and place (unless on a really hot parlay streak).
And you know what he did today? He placed a $5000 bet, a 2-team parlay on:
Clippers +12 at -340
For a payout of $2058.
There goes 2K that he will take out of me like an ATM without a sweat. I don't even understand why books offer these kinds of bets. There is no way in hell the heat will lose at home, or let the Knicks keep it within 15. There is no way the clippers will lose by more than 12, as they are leading the series 3-1, they might not even lose at all. They lost one game and that was by 7.
They say you can invest your money in government bonds or T-bills risk-free at 4% a year, or take riskier companies at maybe an expected return of 10% or more. How about a 40% return on your money RISK-FREE in one day?
Everytime someone did that to me in the past he cashed out right away and disappeared, even though I promptly paid him in cash.
The last guys won something like 4 nfl teasers in a row and disappeared forever.
