I feel you pain man...  don't know what to tell you.  Man we are out gunned and out manned in this gambling garbage.  Even people that win, if your not making crazy money at this I mean big time money not talking about a few thousand or even 10 or 15 grand.  I mean big time cash like 50K after the season atleast.  You lose a lot of time betting on these games, to not make a killing.  Because this takes a lot of time to do, whether you win or lose.

Good luck in the future.

thanks ATL, I used to be a spread bettor and just got tired/lost my nerve betting them and losing by a hook or whatever. I still will bet spreads once I get up enough. Just frustrating to have like 20 parlays in the last 2-3 months lose by one game. Good luck to you too.

I don't know why [arlays are so popular..i've tried a few parlays picks huge favourites by like 14 points and picked them without the point handicap. I only do 3-4 teams per parlay and I've still only ever won one!

jarrett ... i know how you feel ...

its unbelievable how games go

its heart breaking every day every night when we lose a "safe parlay"
when one team or one player doesnt show up to play their best
cause they dont care (lakers)
orlando gets whipped then beats chicago 

its insane
how do we explain the games?
goodness.

I had wichita state on satuday

we had washington last night

and many many many more...

the only thing we need to do is, if its a 15 team, round robin the parlay
if its a 5 or 6 teamer like you like to do, round robin

but i will do that when i build my account, with a lucky parlay winner

Man....in the last 2 weeks I have missed 5 parlays on the last leg that paid out over 7k. I had Clippers ml at the warriors and got fucked. Xavier+8.5 and leading by 10 at half and they lose by 20. That one had me pondering suicide for all of 30 seconds. Next up, Colorado +8 at Oregon and they were up 6 or so at half and they lost by 9. After these bad beats I decided to switch it up and go the big ml parlay route and on Sunday it all came down to Spurs ml to win big and of course with their 15-2 or whatever it is home record I get fucked by the injured nuggets. Tonight was a nice slap in the face. After getting fucked by Colorado last week, I rolled with Oregon ml in a parlay as the last leg. This friggin matchup has driven me insane last 10 days. darn gambling haha. I bet like you and have been hitting my straight bets at a pretty decent % but bc of all the parlays and near misses I am down. I'm going to give it one more weekend and if I lose more take a break till MLB besides Bracket stuff. Good luck bro......





why is it always the last leg?

Losing my Oregon parlay tonight sucked. Going big on UNLV/BULLS ml hurt a lot also though. 


roll with me today....I'm feeling things will turn around. Week can't possibly get any shittier for me after my DWI nonsense yesterday.

parlay: blackhawks, penguins-..5, twolves-1, nets-1, wisconsin ml, gators-4, xavier-2.5



cuse/unlv/mich st/ st louis/ 76ers



i think today will be better

The last 3 days I had one 3 team parlay for $50 each day. I won my first 2 games and the last game on the parlay have failed each time. After that I am done with them. If I do try it again it won't be nothing more than a 2 team. Out of those 9 games, betting all straight bets I would've hit 6 of 9 and would have made a profit.

It's good to see others feeling the same way and not too many rubbing it in. I used to be a very good gambler, but lost my nerve I think. I just have been doing it so long and while I don't get excited/mad when I lose these parlays, it pushes my faith I have in me down. I mean I used to assrape sites back in the day. I have taken a ton of money from Sportsbook.com until they stopped paying me I was getting two $2,500 checks from them a week for a long time. Then I think they stopped paying me to darn with my roll and of course spending hours at a time yelling at them about my checks did darn me up. And I lost a lot back to them and they still owe me a lot of money that I never got. I just am at a point where I really need the money and keep friggin up. Today I will prolly make another deposit, then if it loses I get comped one more deposit. If I lose it, then I will just play the brackets for the next two weeks. Good luck today guys.

this was a few years ago. I dunno what Sportsbook.com's rep is now, but back then it was ok, then went deep into the shitter for a long time. They paid me a lot, but still owe me like 12-15k.

Dude, why are you frustrated.  It's your betting strategy.  Books love people like you.  Look in the mirror rather than being upset about losing one ML out of a 5 or 6 teamer.  You're looking for the easy way out but it's actually quite the opposite.  If you can't handle spreads, try a few 2-teamers at even money.
