Having Mahommes on my fantasy 5 game is killing me. I have all the TD scorers otherwise, and Brady as MVP. If I had the KC kicker instead of PM, I might win the $1M

How’d everyone make out? My Fournette bet saved me on DK to put me positive for the day after a ton of wrong prop bets and then the $275 on Fan Duel was really nice bc it actually is cash and not site credit. After the game DK had risk free bet up to $55 on any casino game so I took a swing at blackjack on a $55 bet and won so stopped while I was ahead. DK is also giving a $20 free bet for all the issues during the game where it was super slow/freezing.

I think I'm done with college hoops for a few weeks. I got it handed to me last week. Wed was horrible with all the ranked teams losing. Sat. wasn't any better. UT/UK was the perfect under scenario...when it looks too good to be true!

Basketball pro and college kill me. You never know when they are going to rest guys in the pros or if someone is cold shooting. I probably won’t bet much now that football is over unless they have some no brainer bets or big odd boost type stuff.

The bad beats are amazing in basketball. I've lost several on meaningless free throws at the end of a lopsided game.

One strategy I've learned is to just bet a small amount against Tennessee. That way, you are only out a few bucks and you are guaranteed a Tennessee win.

DK had a 50% odd boost on any colleve basketball game tonight. I took Penn State +4.
First half thought I had no shot, second half they had close to an 80% chance to win and then the last 5 mins of the game they blew it and it came down to the final possession on if they would cover. They covered but damn what a rollercoaster ride. Basketball drives me nuts.

There is no crazier ride than the first weekend of March Madness in Vegas. So much fun.

I got

$20 on the Broncos to win the SB +6600 (on the outside chance that they get Watson)
$25 on the Bucs to win the SB +800
$20 on the Pats to win the SB +4000 (I figure they are going to do quite well with their $60m cap space and returning players)

Two things
1. When you bet make sure you aren’t multitasking or fat finger something. I meant to put in $90 and ended up betting $900 last week and it wouldn’t let me cancel the bet or cash it out. I lost the bet and lost all but $25 I had in that account.
2. It’s amazing how you can lose it all and then get lucky enough to win it back. Karma is a crazy thing. I took the $25 I had left and over the course of the week I got it back up to $1,000. Yesterday was huge for me I made a $500 bet and it paid off but I never want to do that again. I was sweating bullets because the team I bet on was down at the half and down by 5 late in the second half. I had them at -5 and miraculously they covered.
Hopefully someone learns from my mistake and double checks their **** before they place the bet.

I'm having a blast spreading out $5 $10 bets on college bball every day. I'm up to $250 after depositing $50 at the beginning of the football season. My tip never put in what you don't want to lose. It just gives the games a little juice and gets me informed for March Madness.

I went about .500 this weekend. I got greedy and picked a couple too many two bet parlays. Texas, Oregon, Loyola Chicago, Stephen F. Austin, UMass Lowell were some winners. Around 4/5 point favorites was the sweet spot this weekend.

Just threw down $20 to win $200 on Luka for MVP. It's Embiid's to lose, and he's injury-prone. Meanwhile, Dallas has a really easy remaining schedule and he's going to finish strong.

I would not recommend doing business with Action 247 anymore.

They got their operating license suspended by the state after an investigation revealed that fraudulent activity was occurring on their book and that they knew about it for over a week before they reported it.

To make matters worse, they lied on Twitter about why their book was down, claiming at first it was just “site maintenance” - which I found suspicious from the start, since what book in their right mind would schedule a maintenance period in the middle of one of the most lucrative weekends of the year for sportsbooks? Now thousands of bettors have their money tied up with no way to access it. Fortunately for me I pulled out all the money I had with them a few days ago.

Use FD, DK, MGM etc. this isn’t an industry or time to ‘support local business’
