If anyone is looking for new ways to torture terrorists and criminals for information, I recommend forcing them to try to place any live parlay bet for football................


Possibly one of the most frustrating experiences you can put a human being through.

If it were as simple as telling the sports book to stop changing and closing the damn odds of a game every 2.5 seconds, or telling people around the world to stop live betting the games I am trying to place a measly bet in, for 10 damn seconds, then I would certainly do that.............unfortunately, it can't be that simple now can it. :D

Great games tonight… could only keep tabs on my phone until 10ish. Like I suspected, there were lots of opportunities for live betting. PSU was +800 on Purdue’s second to last drive before the officials overturned the ruled completion by the TE. I was happy just taking the FanDuel boost of WVU +7.5 at +125. Funny how the spread of both big games were decided by the hook. Vegas still amazes me.

I can fix that.

If I put money on both PSU -3.5 and Purdue +3.5, reality would find a way to break and keep me from winning money.

I have Illinois +3. I bet a few days ago.
Can't find anything else right now.

Edit: thinking about betting on Sonny Gray against the White Sox. I like him. I have not pulled the trigger yet.

I bet the Twins first 5 @ -145. I know I am giving away juice but I am comfortable making the bet this way rather than run line or total on the first five. Also, I don't trust the Twins bull pen.

Btw, I'm experimenting with a slow burn strategy for tonight's games. Just playing small bets for this.

I want to focus mainly on games with the same odds that way the payouts are always the same. Trying to play games with -110 odds for each spread line.

I'll bet $3 on the spread I like the most, and $2 on the hedge.

If I played 5 games, and went 3-2, I would technically be behind by about $0.18, but that's better than placing 5 bets straight up, and getting nothing for those 2 losses. The point is that I'll always get something back.

The slow burn is the fact that I also won't be winning much. But I'm still trying to pick the correct spread each time (i.e. 5-0 ideally in this example). So each time I go 5-0 or 4-1, I'm profiting, and each time I do worse, I still don't have to chase as much to recover.

Again, this is just a side experiment. We'll see how it goes when put into action..........(probably horribly, but that's why we do this :D)

Here is link to original post from Rivals Main Board.

Thread '2022 KANDV NFL Survivor League…$10,000 and counting'
https://forums.rivals.com/threads/2022-kandv-nfl-survivor-league…-10-000-and-counting.1062489/

########################

Here is a copy/paste of it for those that don’t have paid rivals subscription.

It's time for another fun and hectic year of the KANDV NFL Survivor League. If you participated last year, you will be receiving the invitation to join soon so check your email Inbox and Spam folders. Last year we had 1689 entries and the final 2 split the pot 1/3 and 2/3s.

IMPORTANT: If you have questions, PLEASE ASK before registering.


Details:
- Run through USA Football Pools again this year as they can accommodate larger numbers.
- $11 entry ($9 to pot, $1 per person for site fees and $1 for admin fees) The admin fees cover my losses due to Paypal chargebacks each year, Paypal fees because some people don't understand how to send as a gift, and the time I put into setting this up. If you don't think that is fair, feel free to abstain this year.

(Paypal gift or Venmo preferred, but checks/Money Orders accepted as long as received before games start Week 1)
Send Paypal gift to wpcajun@yahoo.com
Venmo to @russell-Hall-4
NOTE: Be sure to put the email address you used for usafootballpools.com in the payment notes section so I can mark you as paid.

For those unfamiliar, here are the basic rules:
- You pick 1 team to win their game during Week #1. Your pick has to be made prior to the 1pm EST Sunday game each week.
- If your team wins during Week #1, you move on to Week #2, BUT you cannot use the team from Week #1 again for the season....unless you're alive when the playoffs start.
- If your team loses OR ties OR forfeits due to COVID OR you don’t get your pick in on time, you are eliminated.
- If you forget to make your pick or have technical difficulties, I WILL be able to help this year up to 1230 EST on Sunday.
- The last person standing wins the entire pot…unless there are multiple people remaining after the Super Bowl OR the last remaining people all get eliminated in the same week.

If interested and you haven't played before, post here or PM me. I'll PM you with entry fee instructions. After the entry fee is received you will get an invitation sent to the email used for Paypal with the league link.

I'm now accepting entries. Enter as many times as you like, but each entry is $11. This is open to anyone who wants to join...you don't have to be a TMB board member/poster.

Deadline to pay/register is Sept 4!!!!

For some reason my Fanduel Sportsbook doesn't have the Illinois/Indiana game? Anybody else have that issue? I see MSU/WMU

I had Illinois ML… after IU got a first down I cashed out for about 50% winnings, like winning a -200 bet. I hate doing that, but it was the right call tonight.
I have a feeling Illinois is gonna be a very frustrating team to watch this year, because they're bad enough that they can lose to an awful Indiana team on any given Saturday, but they absolutely will win a game like Penn State last year just to piss everyone off.

Just so long as they win 4 more games this season, then we’re good. They kinda needed that one tonight though.

I see Iowa is bet down to -13.5. No bet for me though.

I have Utah @ -2 and -2.5. I saw it at -2 yesterday afternoon and I bet it again. I might be a fool.
Took James Madison - Middle Tennessee State over 59.
Also have a little on Utah ML.
