    Lakers absolutely buried me...

    I had Lakers team total over 102.5, Lakers 2h team total over 49.5, and over 196.

    Great 1h... 41 pts in 3rd qtr (20 by Lakers), 34 pts 4th qtr (13 by Lakers).

    All 3 of these losses just destroyed me for the day. Down $376 from these three plays alone.

    Also had a tough loss w/ the Grizzlies/Warriors over. 4 pts in last 330 of game. Missed over by 4 pts. 4-6 pt game too, just didn't foul for whatever reason, and other bets that just didn't pan out.

    Down 760 on the day. 1625 available balance left (have some long-term bets out there).

    Just a brutal close to the day. Look at my spreadsheet. 1-10 to close the day.

    this is why i stopped playing totals for the most part. i take a live shot here and there or play a 1st q over once in a while. i bet 3rd q Lakers game under, but fell asleep and didn't get to do it again in the 4th.

    first half over / 2nd under... first half under/2nd over... for the most part.

    Leaf- Were you boozing it up when you made those plays on the over. That's a lot of green to lose on overs. I tend to go overboard on totals at times as well. Like overs especially in BBall.

    Yeah I only do quarters for a couple of teams. I make most of my plays the day before the games because the lines are sweeter (picked up Nets at +12 1/2 vs the Lakers) and make all my plays myself before coming to SBR. After I make my bets I make no more, no spontaneous bets after reading a thread, and no chasing. No more parlays and no more teasers. Has worked out pretty well for me. It's a lot slower especially when your working with a small BR (although I do 4% bets which is still somewhat dull) but have netted 20 units since I started doing it.

    i also pick up my games a day before, the lines are a lot better it seems for the sharper bettor. the books want sharps to buy up a bit of action early so they'll give you a decent price. It's also great for moneylines so you can hedge for nothing or profit if you predict the value of your buy will increase.

    Always chase and eventually you get it all back, no team has ever lost every game in a season ATS. Ever.

    Losing $760 should not bary anyone and if it is you shouldn't be gambling

    I recommend you cash out the rest of your money

    First off, it's "bury" not bary... Learn to speak English you moron.
    Second off, I lost like 32% of my roll not tied up in long term bets. I'd consider that a burial...

    Don't be mad because you suck at gambling on sports. Your diss in regards to my spelling mistake just underlines how much of a loser you truly are. Go back to living a pathetic life and gambling with your petty life savings.

    Cool story bro. When you come in my comment and immediately insult me without giving constructive criticism, doesn't exactly brighten my day.

    I won a little on the Lakers tonight. Hit 2h over and Kobe player prop. Missed on Gasol PTS/REBS player prop.

    Stay away from quarter bets and 1st halfers. Game and some 2h once you get a feel for the game buddy. OR combine bankrolls with ez money 77 and continue to bet the lakers hard? One of these is the answer.
