Default I AM DONE BETTING UNDERS FOR THE YEAR

That's it boys, i've had it.. It's just not worth it. Today the unders went 10-5 on the day, and they end up going 116-115 for me since the start.. That's right, you can call it a wash.. It's just not worth it. I realized that after 231 games, they are .500.. and after 500 games, they will be .500 and after 2300 games, they will be very close to .500.. It's just a complete waste of time.. I have a feeling i will end up losing very small vig at the end, or maybe even win a few units.. it's just not worth the effort..

As of tomorrow, i will continue to bet, however, i will ONLY pick on weak numbers.. I will bet favs, dogs, road teams, home teams, all at the best price. No more limiting myself to unders.. I have a feeling i would've done this for 6 months and probably wasted my summer and make a few hundred dollars, if i'm lucky, or probably even lose...


I don't think i would've did that well, cause here is why. Lets say there was a game that was un 9-05..Sometimes i would look at all my books and each one had un 9-05.. not one had any juicy line like un 9+03.. this would happen on about 4 of the 15 games, so i had no choice but to play the real line, and i hated this.. that's why from now on, if i dont see a good line, i just wont bet it. no use to have to bet an under at a bad price, just because i am playing every under..


Anyways boys, thank you for the memories and as for these unders.. NO MORE.. it's over.. finito.. caput.. terminer, fini, sayonnara.. shalom, chow.. it was fun while it lasted..

Default I AM DONE BETTING UNDERS FOR THE YEAR

From the home office in Montreal, Quebec, Canada... here are the top 10 reasons why I quit betting the unders..



10- Forced to bet bad lines..

9- Was missing all my good shows for silly tv baseball games

8- I dont have to sleep early to wake up for the early games anymore

7- Was staying home too much to watch CBS sportsline to track the games.

6- I will end up with a heart attack.. (unders are too stressful)

5- I was too obsessed with my phone checking scores every 3 min (it controlled my life)

4- I always rushed to get home for 7pm when at the gym.. (it hurt my workouts)

3- I probably would have lost a lot of money, unless it's American Idol, cause i'm a big loser.

2- Couldn't sleep the last month because every night when i sleep, I always had nightmares of seeing homeruns and 3 run doubles in my sleep... (no more)


And the #1 reason i have quit betting the unders is...


I'm a lazy f-ck and I get to sleep in now late and not have to wake up for the early games anymore..



woooooooooooooo

It should say: "3- I probably would have lost a lot of money, unless it's American Idol, or ice hockey playoffs, cause i'm a big loser."

Sickler good move, the money you would of invested is just not worth it. The ball is juiced also.

If guys would put all the money they use to gamble into other type of non risky type of investments they would see their bankrolls grow and realize what idiots they are for betting sports, poker or horses.

You cannot beat them and in the long run you end up around 50%

It sucks when you lost a game and it's only the 4th inning.

sporty, let me explain to you something.. the part of me not wanting to track it and it takes over my life is only about 6% of the reason. the main reason was it was a waste of time for me. Here is why. did you know that everyday for the few weeks i did this, the unders ALWAYS went 7-8, 8-7, 7-7, 6-7,7-6, and so on. I think the best day i ever had was 7-5, and 8-5 once, and the worst day was 6-9. they never went 2-13, or 12-3, or 13-2, or even 11-4.. they always were .500, and they always evened out.. Even my final record was 116-115.. They always even out no matter what. I wouldve ended up paying vig at the end. Not worth it. There is NO advantage at all in these unders.. whether you pick overs or unders, they will end up 50-50..These lines are really sharp. I think the best way to bet is pick my spots.. pick like 2 sides, and maybe 3 totals, whether it's under or over, dog or fav, all at the best price.. much more profitable than silly unders, that will end up 50-50.. And i really wasn't getting that good of lines.. i was playing into the real line maybe 4 out of 15 games a day.. I hated it.

Today i saved money for quitting just in time. They went 5-7.. wooooooooo...


BTW sporty or anyone else out there. If anyone can find me a sports pager that would work in Montreal, i will give them a free parlay to win 200..

quitter??? come on yzee, you think i am going to piss away a losing proposition? the books would have had the last laugh. I probably would've lost money doing this. you can call me whatever you want, but i made the right move here. The books are the people who ended up the loser, not me. I ain't playing the board and commission myself to death so i dont be called a quitter. call me a quitter all you want, i am walking away feeling good and still have some money left in my pocket. I already saved about 1700 bucks today for not playing them. Plus, i made 3 dimes last night on this SICK2 prop.. i love it. easy money man. instead of sitting here like a loser and calling me a quitter, you should be betting this winning prop..

Chris or taylor will win AI.. no one else has a chance.

14k if taylor wins for the sick3, 12k if chris or kat wins..

3k more if taylor or chris win for the sick2 bet..



And i am not that big a bettor. My avg bet is between 500-700 a game. thank you pinny and wsex.. wooooooooooo.. my biggest bet i ever made in my life and i wont even sweat it out. this is like having a 6-0 lead after 2 periods in hockey.

i don't mind being called a quitter at this time. Right now, i feel like a champ, cause boy oh boy, did i quit the unders at the best time.. Did you boys know that in the last 32 games, 24 have gone over, and only 8 have gone under. At 700 a pop, i would have dropped close to 13 dimes..


WTF is it with these overs?? They are like 50 games over .500 this year. hey, maybe now i should jump in again?? Just kidding.. But seriously, i feel great right now.. finally i make a good decision in my life. Now if only Taylor would win AI, which i really believe he will, things will be great for the sick one..
