Gambling thread

Is it ok if we start a gambling thread? With it now being legal for the most part I think there might be some decent discussions about it. I mostly play horses so i will talk about what I am doing in regards to that but I pay attention to gambling industry trends and other noteworthy news.

Does anyone here gamble or like to discuss it? If there isnt a crowd for it I will stick to twitter.

I enjoy it to some extent. Very much enjoyed the British Open last year when I hit on Molinari at 50/1.

I've picked up the habit of sports gambling lately. Mostly college basketball. I find the NBA too unpredictable.

I think Golf will be a great game for in game betting. They should embrace gambling.

The few sports I have made have all been unders in UK games. Been on a streak with those.

For those that maybe want to see how they would do gambling without spending money, this is a good site. I think if you get to 100 bucks you can cash out or transfer it to a sportsbook

Thanks for sharing. I dabbled in college 8-10 years ago on free sites and pay sites. Lost a few hundred bucks altogether. Now with a young family I have to be a bit tighter with money but playing for free again sounds fun.

I liked the 400 to 1 the guy got for betting the Rams would score 3 points.

Golf can work because you can watch for a guy that's starting to peak.

Still waiting for in game prop bets to take hold. Talk about a way to get folks to watch MLB again, take action on every AB. The metrics guys will be working over time both for the players and the books.

Somewhat related I heard a guy that works for Caesars during an interview talk about what is the best sport from their perspective take action on, he said it was any big Euro soccer match followed by the NFL. They are looking for volume and those sports bring the biggest $s with action usually evenly split, that is why the max bet allowed is so high compared to other sports. The follow up question was which sport was the toughest and he said hands down the WNBA. While he said there appears to be no fixing there is serious drama that goes on behind the scenes that some folks are privy to that does affect the outcome of games, some folks got unfairly good at handicapping this sport with this intel. At Ceasars this sport has the lowest max bet allowed because of this.

Agreed. It could be a real game changer for both sports as they lose market share

In game prop betting is a thing in New Jersey. You can already do it during a horse race which is wild, need good internet though.

Exchange wagering will be the future and I personally can't wait.

With British books like William Hill taking over you are seeing a totally different "bookmaker". They dont try to manage the risk by offsetting bets, instead they just lower the limits for players who win over time. It is turning into a joke but that is the norm in the UK. You are even seeing them do manual approvals for bets made.

For example saw a guy try to make a 1500 wager at 15-1 on Philly to win the NBA championship through william hill. After the manual confirm they flagged the bet and changed the odds to 10-1. Gambler decided not to take the bet. They couldnt even manage the risk on a potential $22,500 bet .
