it seem like anything you touch turn to crap.  Even if u were to pick with your team up big, as soon as u think they going to win, u all know what happen. wtf  Why are our head fill with loser instinct when we pick games?

Can't do it, but thanks for the thought. I think the line is too high.

Happens to all of us.
Key to sports betting is money management. Play without emotions.

Yup I've been getting killed the last 6 wks. Lost so much. The games I didn't play won and the ones I did all lost. Very brutal I must say. After losin so much you tend to be scared to play any games or think clearly because you feel like every pick may be a potential loser.

tonight input on how i think.   Miami play with 2 stars and 3 defenders.  they were lucky to get past Indiana.  Strange how Indiana play poorly after game 3.  Boston always play good D and they got alot of scorers with KG  Paul and Rondo and Allen.  No way lose more than 8

I tell you what i feel like sometimes:

1) There are a couple of solid guys i am willing to tail, however, for the most part I do my own thing.  I do pay attention to what they do and i watch them win....then the second i follow some of their plays they go cold...ha....and im like wtf? I know they are solid and always make money until i get on board.....good times

2)  I feel like every game i bet on....if i have the over, the game goes fast as garbage....if I have the under the game goes slow as all hell....and this is not an emotional thing, its like 3 up 3 down when i have the over, and bases loaded every inning i have the under.

3) I feel like it takes me five times as long to earn my units as it does to lose them.  I have good money management skills and I am pretty seasoned so i put in work, so far for mlb and the nba playoffs ive doubled my bankroll, however, i had tripled my bankroll then bam all of a sudden i lost a shitload quick...im still up, but i was like wtf it took me four days to lose this garbage and 3 weeks to earn it!

I'd say 95% of the people on this site gamble for entertainment. They may say it's the $ but they never actually collect or lose enough to make a major dent on their bottom line in life. The discipline required to consistently win is very rarely the same type of person that also enjoys gambling. There is always an exception or two but basically you're just on a losing streak, nature of the beast if you play long enough.
