    Why do I continue to do this BS

    Back to back weeks bengals have penetrated me sideways on the last leg of a parlay. Missed an XP and a field goal to win last week, and this week losing to cooper penetrating rush. Im in debt and broke and for some reason all I can think about is betting this trash every single Sunday. What the hell is wrong with me

    When you gamble, your brain releases dopamine, the feel-good neurotransmitter that makes you feel excited. You'd expect to only feel excited when you win, but your body produces this neurological response even when you lose.

    Its a common story among us degenerates. When Payton played in indy I cant tell you how many times on either Sunday or Monday night If indy was playing and I was down, I would parlay them and the over

    Last season hit the collage bowl games for a nice year end profit, until the NC game I lost. Then I bet against the BENGELS in every playoff and the super bowl, lost all my bowl money PROFIT!!
    Not very smart

    Post super bowl hangover I guess, definitely didn't see them losing to the Cowboys. We should have sprinkled some on Cowboys ML just in case

    Ive been there before, and believe me it sucks. Just work on getting yourself out of debt, whatever it takes. Downgrade stuff, work extra shifts or pickup an extra job. Whatever the hell it takes. Then if you still wanna do this, build up a bankroll, and dont bet until you have a comfortable amount. Then when you get back in, its not life or death, its more for fun, with a chance of going on a fun ride. Trust me, betting under pressure is the worst.

    Take this advice seriously. Cut your losses and stop gambling. Very very very few ppl win in the end. This shit is a joke if you think about it. We're betting our hard earned money on millionaires that don't give a single fuckk if they drop a ball or fumble or even finish a game(Antonio Brown for eg.) Just quit watching the shit too. These mfers are rapists(big Ben) woman beaters(Trevor Bauer) murderers(oj) neglect their kids(brady) they're a bunch of fuckn losers.

    Instead of watching and gambling on sports do this. Invest your money. Max out your roth IRA and 401k at work if you have one. If you have Expendable money left over speculate in some cryptos. The time you spent watching sports instead use it to work out. Hit the gym run marathons walk for an hour whatever you're into. Spend more quality time with your family friends kids if you have any. You'll be 1000 times better off in life. Fuckk gambling and watching sports on tv. Most ppl that do it are flat broke and fat. Break the cycle. You'll be glad you did.

    nothing to disagree with here either. fans are more upset about the browns collapse than the browns themselves.

    Gambling is a disease that has no cure. You can probably go through periods of remission, but you will eventually relapse. I've just accepted the fact that I will be a gambler till the day I die, and the best I can do is try to control my emotion and not tilt during a bad streak, but of course, this is easier said than done.

    You didn't know about the betting trend that Super Bowl losers will lose the spread on Week 1. This trend said to bet on the Steelers against the Bengals on Week 1. Smart money fades the public.

    I agree with everything you said. Somewhere along the way I convinced myself I could make money doing this.. and I did for a season or two, but now Id be lying to myself if I ever said I was in the green lifetime.. only issue is finding a hobby or activity that gives me that dopamine that I can replace gambling with.. so far no luck
