    it all depends on the person's income......i know dudes who have plenty of money but cannot afford to lose it.

    i have various passive incomes so i can afford to bet 100, 150, or even 200 a game. most ive bet is 1000, but when im running cold i go down to 50....maybe even 25 on a long shot...it all depends.

    i dont care what people are betting as long as their betting something....preferably real money and not points, but it's all good.

    we're just here to have fun.....dont go broke.

    I have a hard time gauging the true means of the avg SBR poster.

    Avg bet size would be even more difficult to estimate imo

    If I was disciplined and only betting +EV games I would fire 1k a game or more. I'm a fukkin action junkie though and if I bet 1k on a fukkin MAC game where I have zero edge, my risk of ruin is 100%. I'd rather fire 50 bucks on a random play or on one of my favorite teams.

    If you want to have decent income, you should bet $1000 per game. 100-dollar bets hardly make any impact.

    A lot of talk here, but I bet the actually average bet size is less than $50. Not saying that any of you guys aren’t betting a lot more, but guys that are wagering $10 a game, aren’t going to respond to this thread.

    I don't one place a wager under $100 and it varies from there. I had $1500 on an NHL wager last eeek, $550 on MNF, and as much as $3k that I threw down on that three team parlay that hit at the end of last year’s NHL playoffs.

    If I had to try to come up with an average....I would say $175 or so.

    For me , bet size from $150-$750. Anything below that would be considered gambling for fun.

    Anywhere from $5 a unit and most plays are 1-5 unit. I play one game a day at $75.

    I use 2 inexpensive services, Not exciting with the small plays but it all adds up.

    Up $400 this month. Slow and steady, itís a marathon. In December I will adjust.

    Was up $700 but went aggressive (only losing days in a 10 day period. Lmao) and lost $450 in 2 days.

    Real info

    Men if you make 50k a year salary the most you should be betting is $10 a game

    It is what people do not get ......betting $10 a game and you can easily lose $100 a week and that is way too much for a 50k gross salary

    Not really. Most lose betting on sports long term, probably 95%. Smarter to bet $100 a game and lose long term or $20-$50 a game and lose long term?

    Sportsbetting is many different things to many different people. How many here are professional bettors?

    I make six figures and I bet anywhere from $10 to over $500 a game. There is no code or rules to follow. Bet whatever you feel comfortable with. More complete bullshit posts in this thread than not.

    I've been betting for 2 years and am a 15 dollar a side or total bettor. I figured if I'm actually successful, my bankroll would increase and my average bet would increase... So far I've lost a few hundred of my bankroll so I'm going to stay at this unit until I figure things out to win it back. If I were a 100 bettor my losses would have been greater.

    Okay so if most lose that's fine. Either way if you hit around 50% you won't lose much more.
