Third off, I do bet my own money I show all my bets $25,000 this weekend on NFL total too. By having some of the wealthiest as clients who know I'm solid and work commission based I get a lot more down on the games.

Fourth off, please don't hate, get jealous or troll. I am not looking for any money off anyone and i only speak the truth my man.
This is just utter and complete nonsense. Why risk your own money? Why pay someone a share of your winnings?! I scratch and claw to get down as much as I can. I cant imagine giving anything away to a backer. And its funny, Ive never heard any serious winning gamblers complain about variance.

Also, you keep bragging about this 25k bet (that the market rejected btw.) But you admit its not your money, so why would that be impressive? I guess its neat that you somehow found someone with money to "back" you but thats about it. I started with literally 0 dollars. Just bet middles and scalps on credit until I built a little something and I was on my way. I actually cant even imagine asking someone for a stake, lol.

And believe me dude, no one is "hating" or trolling or jealous of you. Trust me. We're just having a discussion. True youre not selling anything and I guess if its working for you then good for you. But like literally every single staking arrangement Ive ever seen, Id bet this one does not end up good for you.

1) None of your plays have any equity.
2) It is impossible for your clients to win if they're paying virtually anything per play. (Feel free to give details about the commission structure so someone can run a binomial on where breakeven records are.)

I did enjoy the durrrrrr analogy who is a pretty obvious POS scamtard. Didn't he angleshoot Jungleman to pretend he doesn't have to pay him money?

most likely higher than 20mil, he quite often claims that he used to drop 1milly on nba games quite frequently for himself and played the one drop this year w/o being staked. prob is worth 50mil+ mini

if u're serious about that u can dm me ur skype and u can ask me questions in depth about it, it depends hella lot on the person i.e. ur yearly expenses, what stage u're at in life, what u expect, etc.

also i wouldn't recommend dropping a job(if u have one) and starting like that w/o any experience whatsoever obv... but as i said, if u're serious about it u can dm me ur skype and we'll talk it over there i don't think here is the place for such a talk

Didn't it go something like Durrr was suppose to be placing bets for Haralabob through one of his Macau bookie buddies. Think it turned out, well according to Haralabob, that Durrr was never even placing the bets for him or was just booking the action himself. I guess turns out in that span Haralabob ended up winning what was suppose to be about a million or so off those bets. Guess the guy never paid and disappeared. I think that's the story?

Bookmaking is a very lucrative business.

in my experience, poker players are way more trustworthy than people in sports betting. people in the sports betting world are generally the lowest scum.

Eh, you can't lump low level bookmakers/degenerates in with actual sharps, and you're on the Post Oak rung of the food chain so your experience is essentially worthless.

Line moved from opening 51 to 54.5, it's what called a buyback. Learn sports before you talk to me. Everything you just said is complete nonsense. It's hard to even reply!

Let me get this straight...if someone offered you $100,000 in sports account and said you do all the picks and we split 50% profits, would you do it? /endconvo

Works as a black and red method very simple.

Okay, let remove durrrr...let add in all the players that take stakes from rich backers to play. Probably 50% of high stakes players either sell action or get staked. Get a clue.

Re: Buying Picks and Tout Discussion Thread (Should I Purchase Tips Discussed)

If I was a low level conman, I would do what Prof Ed is doing here. Obviously people have all sorts of arrangements in sports betting syndicates. The problem is purely on economic alignment and he is engaging in casual reductionism and false equivalence. The whole issue turns on the fact that 1) He isn't a winning bettor 2) the structure that he has agreed to with his customers allows him to win given that 1 is a certainty.

I mean, you posted a whole handful of tickets with -EV. I won't bother to to do the math, but probably punted 2-3k on those tickets. Gotta have a pretty ****ty scam with your clients to swing that into being profitable for you.

Bonus;
November 6th, 2016 bet the DUCKS NHL, they're 23-0 at home vs Flames. Have not lost a match since April 25th, 2005! Do your homework like me!
