I had a three team money line round robin with the Vols, KU, and WVU.  Leave it to the Hawks to screw that up.  Also, the NFL slate yesterday was brutal.

Lesson learned!
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

All my Skylar Thompson bets that he was on pace to hit came crashing down with his injury.

Fan Duel let me parlay a Skylar 199+ passing over with an alternate passing yards 225+.  That's gotta be a mistake, right?  It seems like a no-brainer to tack on all the lower alternate passing yards into a parlay going forward.

Are you sure it increased your payout? Mgm will remove selections like that because it has no effect on odds.

I thought it did but I cannot confirm with what the app shows me for past bets.  I'll try to recreate it when I'm back in KS.  You're probably right though as I can't imagine this loophole exists.

For some reason this thread was locked last week and I couldn't post ben ji's bites for the weekend.

Went 3-1 with the hawks costing me on the MASSIVE $5 parlay.

I still won some $ thanks to our Vol and WVU friends.

Spent Sunday at Hollywood's sportsbook. I didn't expect it to be as nice as Circa's but woof. It looks like they bought the furniture on clearance from Walmart's home & garden department. Still had a good time but I hope they plan on spritzing the thing up after the football season is over.

Thanks for the update. I kind of want to go up there for a day during the first week of March madness to see if it's anything like Vegas.

mocat, what's the payout on those "teaser" bets you like? I saw your +9.5 line and couldn't believe it. Then I remembered you talking about teaser bets and learned the actual line is KU +3.5

It is absolutely not unless you're thinking of fremont street 25 years ago.  BUT, I am going out there too just because it is easier than flying to vegas and paying $1000 for a table at the cosmo

Here are Ben ji's bites for the weekend. $10 ($20 on the Katz) on each game and a $5 parlay if they all hit.

I am with you on a few of those.  I mixed in Okie Lite on the spread and Hawaii in lieu of OSU/Mich and GaTech/UGA.

was riding high for about half the season......., then it all changed and I keep getting tripped up by upsets. I normally just do like 4-5 team money line parlays with the favorites and it was great for a while, but the end of the season has been a killer. I have about $100 left of the free monies they gave me and am thinking about letting it ride so I can just close my account and not do this anymore.

threw in a LSU +17.5 vs georgia because i think there's some value there since LSU just dropped a turd at texas a&m, and 17 is a reasonably key number.
snowbrag has this spread at +10.5, but i could certainly see georgia winning by 35 if they really want to, idk.
