FanDuel completely screwed me on my free bet, I made 3 bets, lost all 3 didn't get any refunds, so I closed my account and joined DraftKings. DK has done everything they said they would and their app. kills FD. I should have listened to @bignewt . I didn't and it cost me $250

1. Did you opt in?
2. Usually FD requires 2/3 legs of a parlay to hit for any insurance to be paid out.

I thought I did, but my connection seemed bad, some how I got listed as gambling out of NJ and it wouldn't let me bet, some bets, but then let some go through. It just was a headache all the way around and DK has been the complete opposite, every time I opt in, I get my boost, every bet goes through quicker and it's easier. Maybe, I'm too much of an idiot to use FD, very possible, but DK works great for me and I'm very happy

Man, I'm on fire with the NBA player props, Morant and Wall for double/doubles bet $110 won $500. Wall had his d/d by halftime, Morant by the end of the third quarter. Throw in Paul George for over 41.5 points/assists/rebounds and won $130 on a $65 bet. So $175 to win $630. Lost my Draymond Green triple double bet at +1200 for $50, he had 19 rebounds, 11 assists and only 2 points. So anyway +$405 in basketball tonight

All that bragging and got killed on baseball betting on players hitting HRs. Basketball is still going well,.double/doubles for Zion and Bam (10 assists, didn't get there in rebounds, big shock/win). Keep taking flyers on triple doubles, not worth it, but that's probably because I've haven't hit one. Still, too rare, unless u take Westbrook and the odds are like -140, which is mind-boggling bad

Btw, although Zion had like 14 rebounds today, he doesn't really rebound as well as I think he should. Fwiw, unless he is rebounding his own miss, he isn't as good of a rebounder as he should be. My point being, lay off Zion double/double bets and over 9 rebounds, because if it isn't his own miss, he don't want it bad enough, imo. As long as the big center is hurt in Memphis, I like all the Ja Morant double/double bets and over 24 points scored, hell probably over 25 or 26. Just saying. Over 1.5, 3's for Morant isn't a bad bet, too, imo

My lock for tonight, Draymond Green for a double/double at +200. I had a 25% boost so I bet $50 to $175. I feel so confident in that bet, I took a $20 flyer on Green to win $255 if he also pulls off triple double. I've learned that triple doubles are a fool's bet, but throwing $20 or less out on one every once in a while could be worth it, if you hit one. Well, if I ever hit one, so keep that in mind

Well, my lock lost, but that's what happens when Golden St is down over 30 at halftime. Still broke even thanks to a double/double by Christian Wood for Houston, 24 points, 18 rebounds had the d/d about 3 minutes into the 3rd quarter. Blowouts are the biggest worry on player prop bets, especially late in the season. Neither Draymond, Steph or Luka played a minute in the 4th. But hell, who thought Dallas would have the game all but won by halftime.

I lost every bet I made in basketball the last 2 days, of course, that's what happens with blowouts, injuries and ejections when u mostly bet player player props. -$800+. Thanks to lady luck, I hit a couple of baseball bets. Just when I think I have the NBA figured out, I'm brought back to reality and some. Oh yeah, despite all the basketball losing, staying a little ahead in baseball, I've been on fire in soccer. I had Gareth Bale scoring in the 1st half and scoring 2+ goals, this weekend and he had a hat trick. Wish I had that bet. Anyway, De Bruyne for Man City to score in the 1st half in their Champions League match is my bet, tomorrow. I bet $90, pays $500. Usually only throw $10 or $20 out on goal scoring bets, because the odds are so high and it's so hard to predict, but I'm on TILT, so cheer for The Dog and KDP, to score, tomorrow
