    Anyone else dabble? I hit last night on the Rangers vs astros game and hit tonight on Miami vs Milwaukee, up about 120 plus I took under 6 on the hockey game tonight which looks like it might hit as well.
    What sites we using folks? I use pinnacle

    @Jeans yes, absolutely. I tend to only bet small amounts (about £10) on large scale accumulators though. 10-15 wins normally means a pay out of about £3000+ from that £10. Never happened though! But I'm happy to lose a tenner in the event that it might just pay for my next big holiday!

    I normally don’t bet higher than 10 or 15. Got cocky last night and bet 40 on the diamondbacks vs dodger because the odds were too good to pass up (it was all good until the 9th inning lol).
    I have 15 on the Canucks vs golden knights game tonight and 10 on my raptors as well. Gonna be pretty pissed if we get swept out the playoffs lol

    I won't even do multiple bets. Just £10 a week, I can afford to lose that. If I start putting down 4 or 5 £10 bets a week and lose them all then it's automatically £200 a month. I can spend that on much better s---!

    I get that. The way I think about it is I started with 25 I put into my account a few days ago and now I’m up off that initial 25 so I can throw bets around because it’s in a sense “free money”. Terrible thinking I know lmao

    Don’t have much faith but I put 20 on the nuggets against the clippers. Pays out 80. Fingers crossed

    Well I used to bet but not smart, I think I lost close to 60.000$ since 2013 betting on sports(for some it might not be a lot but I live in a country where the average salary is 300$). I used to grind 10 hours a day for months and than when I had money I would enter this black hole where I bet everyday and couldn't stop until I hit 0 and repeat, year after year after year. This year alone I lost 10.000$ and I all i got left is 1k$.

    I have some notes on my icloud, where on 3rd of April 2016 I had 15.000$ and just 4 weeks later I saved a message asking a friend to let me 2 more weeks with a 200$ loan. In October 2017 I had 20.000$ on my name and in January 2018 I found myself working in a warehouse thousands of miles away from home in Amsterdam.

    It literally destroyed my life, lost my fiance, friends, all the opportunities I've created for myself and now I'm 33 with no plans, no ideas how to start over, a dark cloud over my head thinking everyday about the things I've lost because of this.

    This s--- can destroy you if you're not careful. I know someone that commited suicide cause he lost everything he had at sports betting. I never thought of that, I mean I knew it was me that was stupid and knew that if I put the work in I could make the money back but this s--- pracitally took away my 20s.
