Sounds like you have the magic touch :lol
I don't expect to make much money doing this, and if I start losing much, I'll quit. I know that it isn't in my favor, haha. I've hit nearly 150% of what I started with in the first two weeks, though, so maybe I'll stay lucky for a while.

I just added (30 mins ago) a 4-team College FB parlay and a single game bet, as well as the under on a game.

I'll reveal the results after. I didn't put much money into it, just wanted to make it interesting. I have more on the NFL games tomorrow.
My point I was making was to use it for what it is, entertainment. And it looks like you have the right attitude towards it. It's about having fun, and if you can make a couple of bucks out of it, all the better.

College is tough for me, so many teams, crazy spreads and totals. I think if I tried to follow one or two divisions I might have a chance. But I limit myself to pro football so as not to go broke. I do sometimes bet other sports but only during the playoffs or championships.

Good advice. My dad was betting on sports before you could even do it legally online (TN lol). He beat the same thought process into me before I started. Reps for all of the tips you've given me.

Being from the south, the center of college football, the SEC, is a HUGE deal. I prefer betting on NFL, but I know quite a bit about both.

The only other sport that I think I'd bet on is NCAA basketball. I think I'm going to place a small UK national championship futures bet this year (I'm a UK fan, hate it :lol)

2-0 so far on my 4 team college parlay. Bowling Green and Indiana at -4, -3.

1-1 on live bets today. Michigan and LSU halftime bets. I'll spare those details.

It's hard to hit them parlays. Especially anything bigger than a 2 or 3 teamer. I hit maybe two 4 teamers a season. Good luck tomorrow. I don't have any action until Monday night.

My dad bet on UT, as well. If they hadn't sucked a massive dick at the end, I would be up $100 (you know those 4 teamers pay out nicely).

I'll keep updating as results come in.

Thought about betting on my date night with Carrie but that game scares me.

Colts didn't cover the spread-- I lost some money on that.

I gained quite a bit more than I lost on a Steelers -2, Bills +3 parlay.

Overall, not a bad day, I guess.

Date night with Carrie is what I call the Sunday night game.

Denver just freaks me out. Peyton does not seem to be playing well but they continue to win. They're on the road and giving up points, and you know how I feel about road team favorites. Look at your Colts today.

And how about them sea chickens. They might not score enough points to even think about covering. That game got bet all the way up to 16 points. That's a huge move.

I just took the Sea chickens at -18.5. I think they cover that.

I also took the Dolphins the second it dropped to +27.5

I stayed away from the Broncos at -3, as tempting as it was. Lions are 0-2 and I think it's a home game for them.

Seahawks covered. Dolphins needed a FG to cover but chucked it up on 4th down instead. So ****ing angry

Well, I may bet on the Broncos game... not sure.

Other than that, between Fanduel and the sportsbook, I finished positive on the weekend. Good weekend of entertainment.

I thought you got Miami +27.5, you should have of won by 1/2 a point, no?

If I were to bet the Broncos game I would bet it under, but I hate doing that.

I took 26.5. I typed it wrong... :crying:

I bet the over on the Broncos game just now... I could look stupid, but we'll see.

Just for kicks--- My Fanduel team scored 173.5 :D

Hedged my *over* 46 total with a matching *over* bet when the total dropped to 30.5.

Looks like I'll just lose the 10%, and if they somehow reach the 46, even better.

Now detroit has to go for a touchdown. So even if they get into range they won't kick it. Then when they turn it over on downs they're gonna sit on it and run the clock.

Now you gotta a chance. Didn't think they were gonna huck it downfield.

Surely they get this field goal (or better)... My dad is pissed because he had the Lions at +3.5 haha. I told him to take Denver -3.5, but "the home team won't go 0-3"
