    I'm on a 39 bet losing streak, what's your highest?

    Finished on a 30 bet losing streak yesterday, woke up today, changed my strategy a bit - 9 horses gone, 9 losses.

    So 39 bet losing streak, most of my picks have been around favourites or thereabouts. It seems unfathomable to me, I'm losing all concept of reality right now. Anyone else been through as many as this?

    Most quit or hang themselves before they lose 39 in a row. You won’t have much company on this one. You are in a league of your own.

    It sounds mathematically impossible to lose 39 straight bets in a row

    My longest losing streak is 7

    Thanks for the replies. Was hoping there would be some to rival mine. I'll keep you posted. They're all low stake bets thankfully and I got a bundle of free bets too which expire soon. Today I've solely placed bets according to an expert tips page so I can only assume I'm cursed.

    So update... I lost 9 more in a row after opening the topic, but I have just finally won a bet. So in the end the losing streak came to 48.

    I had a 2-21 followed shortly thereafter by a 2-23. That was rough. Don't think I've lost anything more than 9 to 11 in a row.

    Funny thing about those spells for me is they almost always reverse right after.

    Here’s how my ratios looked Sunday.

    15 Total bets:

    5 Wins
    10 Loses

    Fortunately, live betting helped to recoup my loses. Gonna do a Hail Mary tonight against New England.

    I've definitely lost 20 in a row more than once, not sure of the exact number though.

    I don't remember what the total # was, but I had an entire month a few years ago where I did not win a single bet. I remember I had a NBA under on a 2nd quarter. They were 2.5 below the quarter total, and there were about 7 seconds left. I was running so cold that I knew they would make a buzzer 3, and sure enough someone was wide open on a double team for the buzzer 3.

    not sure I ever hit double digits in a losing streak. Flip a coin for the next bet.

    Noticed that you joined way back in 2013 and you have 12 posts in here. What site did you get kicked out of. As far a losing streaks, my longest is 9. We all have them. The big difference is how many do you have and how often. Just read some of these replys

    Obviously it is a lot easier to lose 39 in a row with horse racing than a 50-50 proposition.

    Why would somebody post that they lost 48 in a row? Won 48, I could see the skepticism.

    No way you could lose 30 in a row by taking prematch sides or O/U.. you had to have been taking shots on +lines or live lines that were over reacting to a span of 3-4 minutes of scoring. Like quite literally impossible to blindly or purposely do it.

    He said he was betting favorites. A favorite in horse racing is like 4-1. You are going to lose a lot in a row betting 4-1s and worse.

    If it's ALL horses.. 30 losses is not surprising. WAY different than a 2 option win/loss or over/under.
