So, I stayed away from gambling this year but got bored today so I'm getting back into it. Anyone putting money down? I'm trying to keep my betting for fun so trying to avoid the 4-500 a week I was sometimes playing last year.

I have Pack -5 1/1, 9ers -3 1/2, and Bengals +2 in lines.

I have a slew of parlays of Pack -3 (1H), Packers/Chargers O 25 1/2 (1H), Chefs/Dolphins U 20(1H), Skins/9ers U 19(1H), 9ers -3(1H), Steelers -3

Then I have a ML parlay for Falcons, 9ers, Cowboys, and Packers.

I probably put more on the parlays than I should've but I'm trying a new site this year and they require $5 minimums on the parlays. We'll see how it works.

Anyone else laying money? Got some angle that sounds good and wanna share?

My figurin' too. I wont get the thrill that I had before where when things went right, I was winning $700 in a day. So it'll be fun to take a shot and see what comes of it. If I tank, I'll spend the rest doing $2 straight bets.

Oh, and I went back in and added $10 on ARK St over FAU just because those turds lose everything.

I've done a lot of parlays and I've won a lot of money. They're fun to take a shot on. You expect to lose, you're happy as hell if one hits.

If you do multiple and none of them hit, you reevaluate or step away from them. I don't see them as the plague of gambling that some seem to.

But, on the other hand if you can't spare $5 for some entertainment, then I absolutely understand your position. The odds are strongly against you that you'll win.

Parlays work well if you work them right.

Good day Rev!

The books got hit hard yesterday: http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/85...k-9-nfl-season

I only had one 3 team parlay in but I hit that. Definitely not for 5 and half grand.

I put a total of less than a hundred in and got 5300 in winnings.

I laughed at that article. I believe the books post that stuff to get people to think they can win gambling and try to get people out in the books to bet.

It looks like my wife's gonna drag me to the FIU game because it's a free veterans day or something.

I think we're taking the boat out for some fishing on Saturday but if not, I might just roll my caboose outta bed and go watch. For some reason football and a beer sounds like a darn good idea.

I don't ever bet games anymore, really... but I notice this week:

Giants: +9 (10 in some places)
Falcons -7

Those look interesting to me.

Very good call on the Giants. I overlooked that one entirely. The problem, for me, would just be that the game could absolutely go any direction. I could see the Giants getting blown out, Pats getting blown out, or a close game between the two and not be surprised at all. The Giants would surely be the play there but it wouldn't be a bet I'd comfortably make.

The Falcons... They'll definitely win, but that's all I can say. I'd probably prefer their -4 first half line or maybe a 1H ML if it were offered. This might actually be a game I look at more.

I like anyone under -10 against Indy.... but I wouldn't bet against a Belichick team coming off a loss at home unless it's two TD's. That's asking for trouble.

Good call on the Falcons. Looks like that one's gonna cash.

I went through Betphoenix and Bodog and am now with SBG Global.

The thing I like so far is they round their wagers to the nearest dollar. If you get 105 odds, you change your amount and you can get either 100 or 110.
