    All books want losers. Why would they want winners?

    actually, all books want action. they want 50/50 split on each side so they make the vig. if OP is a consistent winner than if book balances wagers they should be ok because there are also losers.

    Not really though. Books can balance the action that they get themselves without needing the help of sharps taking the other side. So most books are going to weed out the winners eventually, leaving the squares to continue depositing away mindlessly.

    if all the squares bet the same team in a lot of circumstances how are they going to balance the other side? squares are like cows, they travel in herds and they pound the same team usually.

    If the book is accepting bets at -110 or -105, they are getting +110 or +105, very easy to lay that off somewhere else if needed.

    Back in 2005 Las Palmas Sportsbook closed my account after 4 bets. Strangely, they were all losers.

    They must have thought you were due for a win

    In 2009 I got 100$ all the way up to 5K$ and did a withdraw. They sent two checks both for 2500$. The first one took fuggin 2 months to come and I cashed it in my bank account then 3 weeks later it bounced and put me in the red (spent it). I was so pissed.. They ended up putting the money back into my online account and told me I could gamble with it in the meantime. I told them to go FAK themselves and to pay me asap. Other check finally came 2 months later. Same shit happend. After 3 more months finally had all 5k$ and it cleared this time. That site is trash and they are crooks. F them Seriously sportsbook is the worst!

    Once I did all sportsbook.ag tasks, it took me 6 weeks to receive $5000 bank instant transfer. They claim it takes 6 weeks, if they have your info they need.

    You must contact them about your pending withdrawals. I waited 6 weeks, still no money. I finally live helped about it and found out they needed photo ID, bill with current address, and bank transfer code. Once they had that, 6 more weeks, I got the dough. I think they hope you will forget about it I guess.
