Up 25 at the end of the 3rd quarter. You get outscored 33-17...really? 

To the Knicks? Really? 

I'm done gambling for awhile. I love sports, but it's impossible to beat Vegas and no one can do it consistently and tell you truthfully they are. 

I'm done being a sucker. I've lost a couple hundred this year. I'm done. Lost money. Good Bye.

Only a couple of hundred? That's not bad at all man. Just stay away from Clippers, Cavs, and Warriors games - you'll be fine.

I would be happy if I was down a couple hundred. Instead I've put myself in a $2k hole the past 3 weeks. It's all relative though. A couple thousand might be pennies to someone else. Losing hurts no matter how much.

To me it's more of a pride thing. I love sports. I love watching sports. When you have JUICE on the game, it's like the Peanut Butter to the Jelly on the Sandwich. 

Sure a Peanut Butter Sandwich tastes, great, but if you add the PB it just tastes that much better. 

I'm going to the NCAA Tourney Games on Thursday, so honestly, i'll probably just take a break until then. 

But still it sucks when you think a bet is going to hit and it just gets thrown away by a bench and/or free throws.

So u were never on the other side where u got a backdoor miracle cover and won ur bet?  It's called variance.  U should quit betting as it will happen more often than u think but it goes both ways.  U win some and u lose some

LOL...Funny you mention this. I had the Cincy Bearcats +12.5 against UCLA last night. UCLA won by 12. 

But I swear to you more often than not, it goes the other way around. I'm never on the winning end of one of these comebacks. 

And I'm sure you've seen some crazy things happen, but just in 2017 alone I have been beaten by a buzzer beater 2-3 times....maybe more. And I maybe bet a couple games a day at most.

A couple hundred?
I've went stupid before and burned tens of thousands. Gambling should only be with a little bit of play money... I've learned that the hard way.

Of course like all of us... we thought we could "make" money rather than it being gambling being entertainment.

Yes they do! And I waited for that to happen Live and picked up the 13.5 and 14.5 and 16.5 points with the Knicks live and Bam! Thank you once again you repetitious LA Clippers.
