Athletics also quite shaky, you are basically gambling on Graveman to hit the groove after a disaster of a start, while Fister has been decent - and the A´s aren´t THAT much better IMHO.

The Dbacks game feels like a coinflip that could go anyway. Nationals with Scherzer I like though, and Red Sox are red hot so why not?
So many sports betting experts in this thread. Mainly look at you Ex-Matt. No risk no reward, right?

For getting out of trouble I do think that your previous strategy of singles/doubles has a much better chance of working out, otherwise you are just running up your debt while hopping to hit that one big score like last time. And sooner or later there will be the time when your debt is ran up so high and your credit is so low that there will be no Hail Mary to catch for that huge one-time-come-on-just-this-one-time win that puts you back in the green.
First of all I am beyond desperate. Second of all you are looking at today’s matchups..I bet those picks yesterday.

Lol man this is a brutal
Stretch for me I haven’t hit a parlay in a while..and In fact whenever I have posted bets here beforehand they have always lost LOL. Makes it more annoying when people come in and critique the bets.

I am never going to take anybody’s advice on who to bet on. I never have and never will. It’s my money. If I bet on other people’s picks there’s no fun in that. And I sure as hell am not taking recommendations from people who come on here AFTER the parlays are done to tell me how stupid I am.

I’m going to keep posting. Screw it. Will only make it sweeter if I bink.

Astros
Mariners/Sox over 9.5
Nationals
Padres
Raptors -7
Okc -3.5

2k pays 80k.

Why dont you rate his bets before the players are at the bat and we all could see how good you are.. (not that anyone will take ur advice but at least if youre gonna rate someones bet dont be a prick and do it after the games).

its easy to be a genius after the cards are turned over right?

I hear you, Snipes. Since February I've lost roughly 45k chasing 3+ teamers. Decided I need to step away for a significant period of time and get my priorities straight. I know you struck lightning back in October of last year but the truth is that the home run parlay is a phenomenon that doesn't really exist. Even if you're lucky enough to smash one you'll eventually find yourself in search of another, until you choose that enough is enough and walk away.

That should have gone over but I deserved to lose on the Padres regardless

Re: Degen Stories....

Being desperate is ok but you are shooting from the hip snipes. At least in the fall we were late in the season and knew who was tanking and who was pressing and who the bookies had semi bad reads on.

I wish you the best but I also ask for your sake do a little more homework and try to nail a 4 teamer based on more than a total hunch Degen Stories....

I love sweating your parlays but I hate when they have a game or two that is DOA (like the Padres)

I wholeheartedly agree. Let’s keep in mind my 400k run was a $1500 deposit and all my bets were SINGLES. Heck I needed 50k just to cover a bill for the month and I all in’d 10k on a -300. I was thinking straight. I never have success with parlays because let’s face it..they’re fool’s gold.

I flip flop between parlays with favourites and parlays with games I would bet a flat unit on. That Padres bet I place 10/10 as a single. Is it something you should add in a parlay? Heck no. It’s brutal and the worst part is i see all my flaws. I can’t seem to stop them. I have an even bigger Hail Mary today. Believe t or not I had a winning parlay today in the evening but couldn’t get the bet down. I’ll dig into this when I get out of this mess so it seems
More believable as to what happened. Anyways I was really fading okc -2.5 because that would have been the final game of my winning parlay (6gamer but pushed one). Wouldn’t have given me the exact number I wanted but hell of close. Moot point but that put me on tilt so I placed this nonsense:


Don’t even wish me luck guys this needs more than that LOL.

Reds
Dbacks
Stl
Tigers
Yankee Twins over 9
Indians

2k pays...drumroll about 170k with bonus.

It's very hard for me to start over right now. My networth is in the minus..well unless you add the car. If I stopped up even 10kish it would be a different story.

I thought about stopping when my roll was 40. I didn't. 30 I didn't. And now here we are. I'd say I've lost about 60k now give or take a few k.

It really is a phenomenon and if I keep betting 2k per parlay and do 2 a day..in about 10 days I'll lose another 50k. This is a real bad time and I know it. I hope I escape again.

I understand what thread I am in, but this is just sad. You will never be able to have a friendly small punt in your life. You might as well just stick it all in and be done with it.
