    I made just over $17,000 last year in profit from betting sports. I think thatís pretty good considering I just do it as a fun hobby. It was my first year betting sports so weíll see if thatís the norm or an aberration or beginners luck. It didnít seem that hard tho.

    How about yíall? What kind of scratch do yíal make betting sports?

    Made enough between NBA playoffs & first month or so of MLB to cash out and buy me mother a nice gift for Mothers Day and took the rest of the dough to take advantage of a tremendous sale at Sprouts on bulk almonds

    Also made a nice chunk close to your figure on Cavs last year in playoffs. Lost most of it a month later

    Itís better the first way bro

    Just donít fool yourself into believing you gonna be a professional gambler like I did 20 years ago after smashing a local for over 30k my 1st year heavily betting NFL w a book..

    Nobody could tell me nothing after that, I sounded much like all the young peckerheads who sign up every year around nfl season to tell us how awesome they are!!! Next season I studied everything starting in July, watched and analyzed every preseason gm, I was ready to embark on what was surely my calling as a professional gambler., next thing you know it week 5 and Iím down bout 20k scrabbling like a Mfer trying to figure out how to pay plus keep a roof over my head!! Lmfao..

    Trust me, it gets worse!!

    This the type of post this forum needs. Imagine a collective unit of posters all bringing their expertise to kill an MLB/NBA/NFL season.

    But nah. Folks wanna talk shit & pound their chest

    I try to help occasionally but more times than not it meant w nonsense but I get it, nobody could tell me nothing when I was young and dumb either.. I didnít really start understanding the value of learning from others until 30ish. Lol

    You are appreciated 2dabank for always posting valuable content

    I am gonna maybe start a thread for bases where we can simply just share thoughts on a game. Idk what is best way to do it exactly though

    I just know some folks will give it the cold shoulder cuz ima rookie. But if guys like you are in there every day itíll be credible. You in?

    Always. I do them often I just havnt this year cause work been nuts w the screwed up weather we have had w all the damn rain so some days Iím working crazy hours and donít have the time while others Iím pretty much not doing shit. Iíll def stop in and post thoughts the days I have time to hopefully add something of value.,

    You will be surprised you should get a good response. The guys we have worth discussing games w donít give a shit about post counts, amounts wagered, or any of that nonsense that doesnít matter. If you start a thread worth reading with good discussion they will come. It the new kids that wanna thump their chest and donít have anything more to say than ďI told you soĒ after cashing a -200
    Fav that get the deservedly poor responses!!

    Baseball meant to be bet everyday, as many plays as possible. Only way i have a chance. I canít pick out one winner to save my life, but I can get down on a bunch of plays that will usually work out in long run.

    Nobody wants to know their lifetime numbers gambling enough said. Bet what you can afford to lose and youíll be ok.

    something like my story, won a ton at first, then lost for a few years, now grinding out a small profit every year typically, but definitely not enough to live on

    Nice run OP, with that luck you need to increase your bets maybe even go all in a few times. It'll be 170k in no time, what could go wrong?
