It's time to pack it up boss.  After all that talk you post a big fat loser.  Don't come around here until you're ready to get honest with yourself.

Reading your prior posts-Your money management & discipline are nonexistent-you're simply out there looking for action. The ONLY reason I ever place a bet is if I feel there is line value associated with the bet-or I won't place the bet. That to me is the sole reason to ever place a bet. If I do place a bet-the bet size is ALWAYS a fixed % of my bankroll-never more & never less.  It's not an exciting way to sports bet-but my bankroll is never ever ever gonna get crushed on 2 or 3 games. My bankroll can virtually last forever. You mentioned you bet The Diamondbacks at +102. How are you able to determine any line value in placing a bet on an Arizona Diamondback exhibition baseball game?????????????????????????? Regular baseball season yes-exhibition games, not a chance. I simply treat sports betting as long term entertainment-but I definitely have discipline picking my betting spots & my bet size is always a fixed % of my bankroll. Good luck.

To people like me, you are wasting your time betting if you are taking little risk.  I prefer high risk, high reward.  Money management is important, but having the ability to consistently pick over 55% long-term is what separates the winners from the losers. 

Dogunder says he consistently does well in MLB.  That is a hell of a skill that few people possess.  But unfortunately for him, his impulsiveness and lack of control with other sports just makes him another degenerate loser.

Bet on niche-er sports like tennis, MMA, and boxing. Betting on stick 'n ball primarily is foolish if you're making bets every day.

1 loss and I will admit that it wasn't the best time to lose a singular bet.

The 400% has been grinded out and us an acurate figure. It's now around 350 but I know many people like myself can make someting out of nothing.
Are you telling me you can't turn a measly 200 bucks into 800 over a month?

My approach is to play single bets, ml bets mixed with single bets and lastly
good value MLines mixed with 1 other for a plus money return. I also never keep my wager amount the same. I flunctuate depending on my confidence in the bet.

Picking a beat up Dallas team was dumb last night and I learned A lesson... Last night I was lookibg at Kings / Dallas. I also saw the Dallas and warriors line last night for the the game tonight and they were Dogs even bedore the Kings game started! That should have been the sign <

Someone said earlier in the thread that they Win more when they dont post the play and I agree 100%. The more you focus on what's happening and dont get caught up in bullshit the better you will do.

Im not claiming I can make a living by gambling. I do by nice things and go on vacations for free from time to time.

I gamble for the fun of it.. Gamble when playing golf, gamble while bowling.. betting is a part of life.. as long as you can pay the bills - go for it.

I can't think of a time some said, "Loser buys dinner." or "Loser buys the first round." ... Even in trading places, they bet $1.

Have fun.. if gambling stresses you out.. don't do it.. but if it brings ya pleasure.. then as they say in poker.. Chase the river!

No NBA..No exhibition anything. No TV games for the action. No Casino games. Do doubling up after a loss. --- I love the handicppin'.  The study. The homework. The challenge. Sports. Horses. You can't handicap a playing card,. roullette wheel. I seriously do not enjoy gambling. But I do like to play a calclated risk. ---  Good luck all. But don't rely on it.

Causes serious bipolar disorder too. Not only a waste of money but you can become seriously depressed/anxious in the longterm.

We as a humanbeings all have our addictions and vices, Mine are Food and Sportsbetting.

Being responsible is key.

dont lose what you cant afford and from time to time, dont be afraid to make a withdrawl after a big win.

I deposited 3 grand at bookmaker 2 years ago, Iv pulled out over 4k total in that 2 years and my balance is 750 dollars as we speak, so all in all No, If your looking to make it a real job and make real money, your dreaming, 1750 dollars in 2 years betting anywhere from 55 to 440 a game average is less than 50 dollars per month, still I enjoy it and am very happy Iv never gone overboard.

Gambling allows one to watch the shitty-retarded sport that is baseball.

Seriously, how can someone watch baseball without action? Why not just look in the mirror for 3 hours and watch yourself die?

I dont gamble for a rush at all.

I hope every game I bet on is over by halftime.

darn that, were not quitting. Ever since I learned to count cards Blackjack has been my best hobby. I'm not saying I win all the time, but the added strategy tips the balance to even it out a bit.
