That's Bull...

So the Bulls decide to win with their biggest margin of victory of the season on the one night I decide to bet against them. Bulls v. Sonics was the only NBA game on TV, but I wasn't about to lay down 9 points, not the way the Bulls have been playing this season. So I took the Sonics instead. I also figured both teams would struggle from the field and we'd have a close, low scoring game. I figured wrong.

Teaser (4 pts)

Sonics +13
Sonics Bulls Under (196)

Risked $5.00 to win $5.00


Thankfully things had gone a little better earlier in the day with a couple of Overs I bet on two Champion's League matches.

Single Bet

Olympique Marseille v. Liverpool Over (2.5)

Risked $2.50 to win $3.13

Single Bet

Real Madrid v. S.S. Lazio Over 2.5

Risked $5.00 to win $3.33


Hopefully the good run in soccer continues for tomorrow as I've already got a couple of plays:

PSV Eindhoven -.5 (+110) for 1 Unit and a two team parlay with Boca Juniors (-290) and AC Milan (-275) for 2 Units. This last two games are going to start at 4:30 in the morning tomorrow, so I might actually wake up that early to watch them. Haha, am I a degenerate or what? I won't wake up at 7am to go to school but I'm willing to wake up at 4:30am to watch a soccer game.


I played a little bit of poker on Pokerstars today for the first time in a while. Nothing big, just a micro stakes Tournament, but I think I'm beginning to crave poker again a little more. Maybe I'll go play a single table freeze out tomorrow at the Charity Casino. I'm not sure, depends how busy I get after school.


After 9 Picks: 4-5-0 +1.6 Units

Bankroll: $57.71

Total Profit:+$7.71
