    I lost 350 on a -1000 live bet

    International basketball. Team was up 25 in 3rd qtr and choked the game way. Things like this really makes me want to quit betting.

    Live betting in prime time games spells trouble in every sport.. If I live bet it's gonna be on a non televised or no name game... Goes for NBA, NHL, and NFL.. I've gotten burnt too many times in years past trying to live bet those prime time one games that are Nationally televised..

    In fact I've actually considered going against what ever the logical live bet play is in those prime time games in the second half after a big score play if I'm bored and watching.. Those usually hit more often then not at +odds.. Hit one last week for 20 bucks just for giggles and kicks when I tried it in NBA at +350..

    I almost got burned for $1370 on a -1370 yesterday. Live bets are very profitable and people who don't know what they're talking about will say don't lay juice, but treat it like a stock when it
    comes to live betting. Things have simple probabilities. However unless you really follow international sports wouldn't put my eggs in that basket

    True, I never bet over -300 these days even on a lock...

    Last high odds play I tried was the SPURS on the ML at home against a lowly team like Orlando a month ago.....Needless to say the Spurs lost.. I bet $750 to win $100 on all my books.. Lost ALL my bet points as well and was zero'd out on SBR..

    It sucked and I learned my lesson.. NEVER AGAIN.. I was kicking myself for trying that but I thought it was a lock.. I never bet those kind of odds either... The one time I did I lost...

    25 points in a basketball game is nothing. Teams come back from 25 down in the NBA weekly. Swerve bro. -25,000? LOL I would pound the other side of that every time if you give me that line. And I would clean up. Stick to baseball.

    Happy New Year Goat...

    William Hill in Vegas does that a lot. Line can speak volume if you watch in game daily like I do..

    Good to see you..

    So what odds are you getting on the other side? William Hill puts out -25,000 for a team up 25 in the NBA? What quarter? Ludicrous. If you are NBA mastermind and watching the games, 25 pt lead can be cut to 7 in minutes. You can hedge out there after if you want. If I ever have time to just sit and watch NBA games at home for 5 6 hours, I bet live bets all day. Too much knee jerk reaction for DD leads in NBA. They vanish very quickly if you don't play smart.

    It matters when the 25 pt lead was. If beginning of 3Rd quarter then pregame maybe -15 if end of 3Rd quarter then more like -25

    Nba rarely over -17 but international see -30 even -40 spreads

    Goat.. this was not NBA. I am talking in general all sports. Also end of 3rd is key.

    You need to compare Apples with Apples.
