    Is it a bad idea to bet on 2 games?

    Just wondering if its a bad idea to place a bet on 2 different games, if in the long run its better just to bet on 1 and take a 50/50 chance on profiting or not. I know if I win game 1 and lose game 2, than its like nothing happened. But I still lost money b/c of the 5%-10% that the sportsbook takes. And the only way to profit is to get lucky and win game 1 AND game 2... Or is it better to take a 50/50 chance on profiting... Idk hope I explained this right, wondering what the smartest choice would be.

    I'm guessing it makes no difference, and yes its probably a dumb question, but I'm new to all this so thought I'd ask dumb questions

    If you bet dogs, you can lose more games than you win and still come out on top.

    If you bet one game a day for two days then it's the same as betting two games in one day. I know what your asking but ultimately you need to win 52.5 percent in the long run to profit regardless if you are betting one game a day or two...

    Appreciate the explanation, I was so worried about DAY BY DAY outcomes rather than thinking about it in the long run , I understand it now. Thanks!
