    I do it all the time. I lose at least 90% of my miss clicks. Bigger bets I take my time on. Bet a football game last year for 200, but I miss clicked and added an extra zero and the bet was for 2000. Of course it lost. Those ones hurt a lot more than betting the wrong side.

    You likely made the mistake yourself. I have done it before on a game that is pick um.

    Tough break.

    Just be more thorough and stick to your plan with any NCAA betting, dont go crazy about it.

    it's safer if you put all your bets via phone if you dont screenshot everything. at least phone, it's all taped, so if you made the mistake, you can see it really was you.. and if they don't have the tape, you win no matter what.


    I'll never forget my worse gambling day of my life. it was late 80's and i put in a 300$ 5 teamer that paid 6,000$...(20-1) with my local.. i was 4/4 and i remember going with 3 friends to a bar and watch the last game. i won that one on a great comeback. i was screaming in joy. back then, 6k was like 25k today. it was a lot. my life was set. when you're a kid, 6k is like 1 million $.. I bought drinks for everyone, meals, i partied all night and spent another 200$. i was so happy.

    I call my local next day and my balance is missing 6300$. i asked why, he read me my bets and said i lost parlay.. i went bollistic.. i freaked. he said i bet PHI instead of PIT on my 5th team in parlay. I argued but to no avail. he told me he has to take his phone guys word cause he never fukks up and thought it was me. i swear to you it was a lie. i got 5/5. and back then, there were no tapes.. i lost 6300$ in the making. he didnt even give me my original 300$ back. i never bet with him again. he stole 6300$ from me, plus the money i spent to party. Today that can never happen again, Thank God. He fukkin took a shot at me. He knows i won that parlay. it changed my life completely. It ruined me for quite some time.

    NEVER TRUST THESE FUKKIN LOCALS. make sure you bet at places where all bets are always taped.

    Every gambler has done that at some point in their life - it's the worst feeling in the world!! The worst is that now every time you lose a bet you made, you will go in there hoping you made that mistake again - you never will but you will always hope.......

    Some people make more careless mistakes like this than others..... If you make a habit of doing this you'll be broke in no time

    Become a SBR Pro, and books don't change your bets to the opposite...Just another advantage of being a PRO.
