Streak Survivor > S.F.Giants w/Cain on the mound for survivor win #20 > View Post
I lost like 300 bucks a few years ago... was an EASY bet... Tom Glavine of the Atlanta Braves who won ALL THE TIME agains some chump for the Cubs.... as I remember was the first start or two of some sucker named Carlos Zambrano....  

Not my best day in vegas.... we can stop at that.... but I thought all numbers were in my favor...

Don't get me wrong , I love Covers and did get my hat. The info and exchange of ideas here is first class and unparalleled on the web IMO. Thank you Covers for that! That is what I come to Covers for and for that I'm grateful.....the rest is just icing on the cake I guess.

Lets be honest about the limited card. Most of the games you have to pick from are not optimal. In fact, IMO most are "no wager" games let alone games you want to play with a double digit streak on the line. Covers says they have multiple "100K" giveaways lined up. However, they do a damn good job in making the highly unlikely become impossible. Leave a full card up every day godammit! Give people some kind of chance.

seriously?  You do realize that the games are all 50/50... if you cant pick a game, dont blame the site, blame your knowledge.....

If I dont hit .600 I will probably kill myself... I am sure I could hit .800 if i was extremely selective, but making a pick every day, i would guess I will be around .600...
