    Ever have one of these moments?

    Place half time bet on bucknell to win the game when they were down by 11 iirc, with 130 left in the game they were down by ten, i stopped paying attention. Found out they won when it was being talked about this morning on the radio.

    Yes but it's usually the other way around more often than not

    Usually happens to me with unders.
    Throughout game, checking scores, my under is covering by a ton. A late, stupid flurry takes it over. Find out in AM.

    I watch a shit load of games, but try to avoid watching games that I have a wager on. Unless I'm extremely confident in it

    I only watch overs in football because you could see progress

    Nhl you cannot tell or sense until there is goal

    Basketball never unders

    Only watch the end

    Not the same scenario, but I had VCU ML this weekend against Dayton. I'm pretty sure they lead by around 12 or 14 with just a few minutes to go. The next time I checked the game was in OT. Lucky enough for me, VCU found a way to win after that epic collapse.

    I just checked the play by play. They led 78-63 with 3:15 to go. Game went to OT 79-79. lol.
    Mind you, VCU was at home.

    I'm surprised so many don't watch the games. Anyone bet live during games?

    not often but i used to alot. can be very profitable, but you can also turn a game that you had a 1unit pregame wager into a 4unit loss

    Yeah, I know how that goes. I think it's useful with the number of runs that are made during a game. It's nothing for a team to come back from 10-12 down.

    I watch most my major plays. Ain’t that the whole point of gambling? You got to watch to get a feel for these teams. That’s part of handicapping for future games.
