    Need Advise on how to win my money back down $3500

    Okay fellas I can't catch a break lately. I have decided I will never bet on another NBA game again.


    I am now down $3500 and the crazy thing is I have been so close to winning my money back and I keep getting ****** over...

    some bad beats....

    Ohio State ML vs Wisconsin
    Ohio State ML vs Purdue
    Cincy ML vs UCONN
    Heat ML vs Knicks
    Purdue ML vs Iowa
    Heat ML vs Blazers 1st half and 2nd Half
    Celtics ML vs Clippers
    Lakers -2 vs Heat

    all rough losses.

    But I feel like I'm good at this. Saturday/Sunday hit a 4 team parlay
    Ohio state-8
    St Johns -12
    Texas -4
    UNC -1

    Last night I was about to win it all back I had a 4 team parlay for $300 that would have paid over $4500

    Marquette ML-winner
    Celtics -10.5 2nd half-winner
    Boston College -13 -winner
    and
    Lakers -2 ... DAMN'T!!!



    Last year I went 5-0 on Opening day in MLB betting on teams with aces on the mound. Do you think I have a better chance to win money waiting for baseball season or is there money to be made doing ML parlays in the NCAA tourney?

    Stop betting the parlays. You're betting $300 on a 4 team parlay? No wonder you're down.

    If your concerned about losing 3500, then you should def not be betting 300 on 4 team parlay! No one is good at parlays.

    Work your way. Put a hundo on each of the individual games you like.

    And if you really need the parlay then throw 50 down on the parlay of all the game.

    You could end up losing one game in the group and still come out up!

    Yeah if u single bet all those plays that's way better, also you should have hedged the last leg assuming the other games were done before lakers tip thirdly it don't bank on doing so well in bases again and just wait and think it will save you...did you go down 3500 betting 300 a game ??

    Too many favorites. You can't win it back. Just bet small as fun hobby, nothing more.

    You should just stop betting before you blow more money chasing losses. Spend $100 bucks and buy some quality books and get reading.

    Bet single games for a set amount. It may take time to win back your losses, but you need to be patient. A quick hit almost always ends up in more losses.
