    Is It Possible To Make BIG Money in Sports Gambling???

    for example, if you're making 5 grand a month on 5 or 6 different A Grade sportsbooks like 5 dimes and bookmaker....they will never cut you off right??



    reason I ask is cause I made about 50 grand the last year in sports betting (I was pretty good in everything - NFL regular season/post season, NBA regular season/postseason) but I was betting pretty small amounts. I want to start betting big amounts and make way more money, but I'm worried about books cutting me off or giving me limits just cause Im making a lot of money



    what do you guys think?? Do u guys know anybody who is a millionaire gambling on this stuff?

    sure it's possible but the moment you up your bets, you'll probably go down in flames. 5dimes would cut you off, bookmaker won't though I won't play there anymore.

    If you made 50k last year why would you have to ask this question. You should know the answer

    50 grand isn't much bro


    that's about 4,000 a month (and I did it on 4 different sportsbooks so only about 1000 a month)




    I want to start making 4-5,000 a month on several different sportsbook and i'm curious If I can do that longterm without getting banned or limited

    yes it is possible, but you need to know in which areas you have an edge and be disciplined

    Why do people feel the need to bs? If you were making 50k a year from betting #1 that's enough to be your full-time job. #2 you would not be on SBR asking for help, you would have upped the antee already and either lost it all or made millions by now. Look pal no offense to you don't take it personally but you don't just come on this site out of nowhere (since april 28th) claiming you make 50k a year from sports betting and that you don't know if books will cut you off? Are you retarted?? Do you sit on your keyboard when you place bets?? OF COURSE THEY WILL CUT YOU OFF! Have you not heard the thousands and thousands of stories about professional players being cut off? Dude who are you trying to impress? Seriously there's a bunch of 50 year old men with c0cks stuck up their asses here. No need to bullsh1t man.

    1)this is not a bragging thread dude. I just wanted some information about increasing the amount I bet in the future and what sportsbooks will do in response to that. I don't even understand how 50 grand is a bragging number. My dad makes that in about 2.5 months of work... how is that a lot of money??


    2)I bet small amounts my first year of gambling because I'm very cautious in everything I do in life


    3)I don't even have the chance to "try to make millions" because there is no sport going on right now that I can bet on. Baseball is nonsense in terms of gambling and football and basketball are in lockouts

    If you have the bankroll, discipline and money management skills, absolutely it's possible.

    fair enough



    but will sportbooks allow you to make say 25 grand a month longterm (assuming you spread it out to multiple different books so it's only about 4 grand a book you're making)??


    how much of a pain tolerance do the A grade sportsbooks have???

    If you are making that kind of money in a year and think you have what it takes to do it year after year then why are you worrying about offshore books cutting you off Why would you not just go to Vegas and do your business?

    My apologies, seemed like BS at first but I have no right to accuse u of lying. Just be a little more specific next time. My bad guy.

    my friends and family live here, I don't want any part of vegas but I will go there if I have to



    For what it's worth, i have a high paying sales job right now but it's not enough for me. I want to make 200+ grand a year in sports gambling and i think I have the skill and money management necessary to do so. I just don't know how much of a pain tolerance these books have
