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:

Heat Moneyline 
Clippers +12 at -340

Odds: -243

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.

If its a "riskfree" bet then why don't you load up on it as well somewhere?

I wish my book offered moneylines on spreads over 10 and allowed me to buy 6a pts. The parlay opportunities would be endless.

Lol and the little garbage just smacked me for yet another sure thing parlay for more money that possibly exists... Lakers, Clippers, Celtics to win series, parlayed. Odds -124. He wanted to lay 20k. I told him I can only do 10 at this point (because it's last minute and I also need to sell some of his action to my bookie). Can't really take a 100 unit risk on myself. 

Three teams about to eliminate their opponents at home. He said he's never been so sure of anything in his life.

lol.  It's your fault.

Here are some mistakes that will own you.

You allow ML bets on over -/+10 spreads 
You allow buying of 6 points.  

You also allowed a max bet of 5k when the average bet is $100? You're really asking for it.  You should limit the max bet, by 10x.

You have no other customers, which means more than likely you will not have action on both sides. Which pretty much you want.

You don't know how to push bets to other bookies?  I see you just hold firm on every bet.

Not to insult you but you have no idea on the bookie biz. I suggest you quit your booking days before you go broke.

Limit the maximum amount per a bet and your problem will be solved. If he doesn't like it, tell him to move on....

I have a couple of guys that I do this for as a side job. I limit them to 2K per wager per an event, regardless of what the wager is.

I don't see how I will go broke getting +110 on games every day for hundreds of dollars. The guy is a total fish, he thinks he "knows" basketball based on a few factors. He went from +6 to +12 on the clippers taking -340 odds instead of -110. How often does the game end in a particular 6-pt range? 

His 5k to my 2k and I think I might be ahead right now.

It was +13.

Didn't realize this fool bought maximum points. And there goes the record books holding all the bad beats that I had to take lifetime combined.

First Boston screws me by not being able to score a run in 6 innings and with runners on 2nd and 3rd 1 out and now this.
