Philly ML was a TOTES real bet.

OVER was TOTES fake bet.  Just can't overcome the NBA rigging every game we bet OVER to go UNDER.  FAKE.

It was Lambskins pick. I wanted to take a break. Cowboysfan asked me for a pick.

 

This is not a time to denigrate me. I am very hurt financially and mocking me over a pick someone else made that I only played because someone else asked for a pick does not help.

 

I take this very serious and making me look bad over someone else's pick disgusts me. You're better than this.

Saturday Cross Sport:

Kamur (UFC) - little AB trained with Kamur and they are buddies. Kamur is a very nice dude and is kind of a big favorite here -265 - so I wanted to put him with something... so Kamur/Rangers/CLE/BJ's ( What?- this is the Toronto Blue Jays)

I also like both the Islanders and Nets tonight

May take Kamur by himself as I think he gets it done but that is a lot of juice...............

I feel for Em but in the long term The “this bet doesn’t count” Shtick was born and he gets full Credit for it.

He’s was kinda tolerable last year, thought he had grown up a bit.  He’s been back on ignore for a bit now

I just heard the announcer casually mention on this Indians / Pirates broadcast that the MLB is banning foreign substances starting Monday. As gambling brethren and people I care about distally, I just think that you should be aware of this change before betting on any games on Monday and going forward.

 

Essentially everything but using the MLB approved rosin will be forbidden and I think you're going to see pitcher production change based on:

1.) Players making a genuine change.
2.) Players being ejected due to cheating.


Potential for the league to become the Wild, Wild, West. The announcer was making a point that there might be more HBP as guys will lose that nth percentage of control that keeps the game in the realm of possibilities.

I'm a better gambler and personality than you can ever dream to be.

I am the measuring stick. Count my bets, I'm still hitting at 60% on the week. I'm #####ing about that because I expect excellence.

 

 

You can ignore Michael Jordan because he's a "mean person" but he's still the GOAT.

CLEVELAND INDIANS (CAL QUANTRILL) @ PITTSBURGH PIRATES (WIL CROWE)

FIRST 5 INNINGS - TOTAL RUNS

Over (5.0) @ +100


ETA: Bet Slip

In regards to this bet, I'm not counting it. I turned the game on and it became apparent that it just rained in Pittsburgh and if I can make an analogy, if one were to bet on a Blackjack shoe when it's "hot", betting on an over after it has just rained would be the equivalent of betting on a shoe that is cold.

 

Science says we want that humidity in the air. Everything is weak contact. We don't bet this if we know that the grass is literally still moist from a downpour less than hours before. I could pitch a quality start in this weather.

 

I can track a lot of things but I can't be privy to a lot of things, but I can't be privy to as to whether or not is has rained recently in every Major City in the United States.

 

 

ETA: I kid you not. Ramirez just slipped on 2nd base (because it was wet) and is now out instead of keeping the inning alive. Neat.

ETA: The baserunners are running in quick sand.

One more thing that grinds my gears is when they play day games in Oakland and I'm supposed to know what time the sunsets on the ####### West Coast and then there's these big ### shadows covering the mound and the sun is in the batter's eyes.

 

Like, I'm supposed to know in which stadiums and at what times the sun is going to be directly in the batters eyes or dumb shadows cast across the outfield resulting in errors. Would love to get that memo, though!

I just don't understand how Sportsbook can legally take action on a game without telling me that the field is going to be wet. We need regulation because the game has simply become "what information can we withhold from the public to mislead them and take all their money".

The starting pitchers are just as important as knowing whether the field will be wet or if there is a 15 MPH wind gust to CF. These aren't exactly "small details".

Well my Rham bet defiantly don’t count then. 
 

how can they use flagsticks that cause the ball to bounce off them and off the green when you are aiming right for them every hole.

I mean, the bookies should not allow us to bet on that.  But I also blame Rham for not having his caddie pull the flag.

In on Over 223 thread bet of death.

Also on Philly ML, mostly because the biggest mush I know (in real life) ((yes, bigger mush than me)) is on Atl ML.

Feels like everyone I know is on White Sox ML & F5 - White Sox ML (Lance Lynn 7-1 at home or some dumb ####). If I know Vegas like I think I know Vegas, this game ends 6-2, Rays win.

 

Thoughts?

If any of the usual suspects are interested in tailing. I've got about $800 risked between both books. I'll probably take a break for a few days if I hit this...


Bet Slip 1 ($500)
Bet Slip 2 ($300)

We love you Kurt!!

7-5

 

7-5 (58.5%) and I consider this to be a "bad week". Counted every bet, even the F5 - Mets / Nationals bet I posted but never played since my book did not have it (and especially the rigged NBA bets).

 

I like to have fun, believe me, nobody likes the funnies more than me. But the funnies are here to amplify the greatness of the picks, not diminish the operation as a whole.

My buddy keeps telling me that Dylan Bundy is getting shelled this year because his spin rate has dropped drastically. Bundy has been quality fade material all season long. But I looked it up and Dylan Bundy doesn't have any kids, so he might be tapping into some savant like sports pyschology to pitch a gem for his old man!

He's not married, but has a girlfriend. Dude is gonna pitch a quality start and propose to wifey after the game.

Obviously, we like the off start time in Anaheim and Casey Mize is a quality arm on the other end. Sans Ohtani, I don't see this as a spot where either team goes crazy but I think the bullpen may let in a floodgate of runs later in the game.

50 cent pick 4 at Monmouth. Races 9 thru 12

i threw the 2 in for the 11th on the recommendation. 

I think I like a pick 3 better starting in the next race for the same price but decided to go for the favorite in this large field 9th race. 

Good luck 👍

Tough beat. And at the hands of Ohtani. You’ll bounce back.

Appreciate the feedback!!

No bounceback needed. That was the first bet of the week and I don't take MLB very seriously. It's great to win but at the same time, it's just baseball. :)

 

Hawks / 76ers O215
