Let's give a little golf clap to your old pal Evil Monkey for stepping out of hibernation to help Washington and Oakland get off the schneid, by betting on their opponents to win after seeing that both the As and the Nats would be throwing guys with winless records on the year.................

The Nationals managed to snap LA's 11 game home win streak and the As ended Houston's 5 game winning streak since the All Star break.

Why do you do that? I had the Dodgers -1.5 run line last night. It has been working well. Ok, now I have them again tonight. Did you stay away?

Baseball is so random and cruel. I am patiently waiting for football/basketball to come back. Less than 6 weeks for football! I’m hoping this October and November resemble last season.

If I hit 63% on CFB again, it will be the only sport I bet on. 2020 NFL was good, 2021 slipped a bit, so I’ll be eager to see if I rebound this year. I have a futures idea circulating in muh brain that I need to number crunch.

But yeah, get us to football season PLEASE!!

I had good Rocket Mortgage golf tournament result.
I keep betting the Dodgers on the money line. Keeps working except the other day when the Rockies scored 2 runs late and the Dodgers only won 5-4.

Out of the state presently so no bets.

Took a flyer on the New York Giants to make the playoffs @ +250. Probably threw some money away.

I'd throw money at the Yankees, who have the best record in the MLB right now, but they got a tough matchup today against Seattle.

I was in Vegas the third week of June. When going into different casinos and then sports books, I like make a couple of bets ( not big money). If I win I don't always get back to the book before I have to fly home. So I mail the winning tickets and follow their directions.
Well, I am having a little trouble getting my winners cashed and a check sent by Resorts World. This is just a little heads up. Every other casino I have received checks for my winners.

Local (Memphis) radio is talking about the FedEx cup alot. Guy on at lunch convinced me to put a (small) wager on Russell Henley to place top ten/five.

I know nothing about golf, so hopefully my +850 plays out

Early SEC RSW leans:

Georgia O 11
Ole Miss O 7.5
Vanderbilt O 2.5

Nothing jumps out in the Big Ten. The West is going to be a festival of 7-9 win teams. I see 5 teams from that division hitting bowl eligibility, and I wouldn’t be surprised if Illinois go there too.

Working on Big 12 and PAC 12 next.

Dodgers won again and covered the -1.5 run line again. I admit I didn’t bet either. The -1.5 run line was -155 before I left the state. I said the heck with it.
I was at the game in Kansas City.

I still have not received my winnings. I just called again and hopefully somebody will get back to me. I must not be a big enough whale to get anybody to pay attention to me.

Haven't posted in here for awhile as my summer betting has been pretty repetitive....LA -1.5 just about every day. I take those winnings and put them on LA to win the NLCS, currently at +160.

Go Dodgers

Yea, it has been fun betting the Dodgers on the run line. I don't every game as the books are making it more challenging on the -1.5 run line. I didn't bet it tonight either.
Yea I have the Dodgers over 98.5 wins ( bet very early). Also to win the division, NLCS, and World Series. We will see what happens.
Tonight I made a small wager on the Orioles-Jays over 9 @-110. Winner already I see.
Should've bet more.

College futures bets. They are not large bets but just something to have on the books to follow.

Texas Tech under 5.5 wins @ -110
Northern Illinois to win the MAC @ +430
Ohio State to win the Big Ten @ -210
Alabama to win the SEC @-140
Clemson to win the ACC @ +135 and + 107
Utah over 9 wins @ -110
Stanford under 4 1/2 wins @ -115

I made all these bets earlier this summer.

Ravens to win division @ +190
Ravens to make the playoffs @ -140

I don’t play many futures because I don’t like my money being tied up for months. I have put some small wagers and free bets on the following:

Hawks over 7.5 -105
Clones under 7.5 -125
OSU win B1G -140
Illinois over 4.5 -135
Florida St over 6.5 -130
Texas under 8.5 -125

You got me thinking about Ole Miss. I went ahead and bet them over 7.5 wins.

Yes, a person does tie up money when betting futures. If I have a few futures bets it can keep me from making spur of the moment bets during the season. Or it keeps me from making too many live bets during a game or a match. I start thinking about how much money I am risking.

God dammit, I was digging more into the SEC West yesterday, and I became hesitant to bet anyone in that division. After Bama, it is an absolute cluster. Everyone has 8-win capability and the margins are so slim. I think both Mississippi schools are positioned better than the others to beat their projections. I could see a situation where Ole Miss and Miss St. are 7-4 and 6-5 respectively going into the Egg Bowl, so you get a push. Ole Miss could start 7-0, then it gets BRUTAL. If Miss. State’s close game luck changes, they can hit their 6.5 before the Egg Bowl, but maaaaaaaaan it’s going to be close.

I made hay with Ole Miss last year. They lost both coordinators. They’re leaning heavily on the portal. I have them at 7 sure wins, 1 sure loss, and 4 toss-ups. I tend to think the tossups won’t go all one way or the other. But…they might. Same with MSU. 6-3-3 for me. But if Auburn is actually interested in playing football for Harsin, and/or Brian Kelly gets LSU to buy in, then that throws a lot of wrenches into things.

Paralysis by analysis going on here. So, I should just stay away. I’ll probably change my mind a few times before placing these bets.

Iowa OVER 7.5 is one of the futures on my radar I have the most confidence in.

The Bears won't be a good team, but their schedule is softer than Charmin this year. They went 6-11 last year with a much tougher slate. I could easily see them winning 7-8 games this year.

Disclaimer: I'm a Bears homer

BetRivers has a Wednesday promo; bet $25 on any NFL or NCAA RSW total (-200 odds or better) and get a $10 free bet. I think it runs for a few more Wednesdays.

I went with Vanderbilt O2.5 +100

If it’s running next week I’l probably go with our Hawkeyes O7.5
