Sport Select, Online, Booky? :D

I used to play alot of Sport Select but I started using an online site last year (www.sportsinteraction.com). I mainly bet on hockey games and some NFL.

I find it better than Sport Select because I can bet on one game instead of 3 game minimum. Anyways I just wanted to see if anyone else plays. Maybe we can share some info, picks, etc... :D

I made $35.00 on Saturday and if everything goes as planned tonight I should add another $50.00 to that.

Do you mean the odds? Take a look. You don't need to sign up to view the odds.

If you do sign up let me know they mailed me some coupons for being a loyal customer so I can give you the code if anyone wants.

the payouts on sportsinteraction.com are much higher than sports select, there are no ties on this book, if game ends in tie you get your money back let me know if anyone wants to join I can get you $25 bonus through signing up with me, if you wanna sign up through the site you only get 10%

Come basketball season I'm all about Sport Select. Sucks sometimes cause with basketball the team has to win by more than five points otherwise it's considering a tie.

I used to know a "guy" that I made bets with but I don't do that anymore. Can make some good cash but can also loose alot as well.

You're much better off with an offshore sportsbook than with SportsSelect.. you get much better odds.

Try http://www.wsex.com they are great (their site looks like shit, but they are one of the largest sportsbooks in the world)

fixed link,thanks

i do a lot of gambling during football season, but i sat this week out after going 2 for 9 last week

basketball i find is one of the hardest sports to play, in the last minute, you can switch sides 5 times,

baseball playoffs are usually pretty good for me but this year has been full of upsets . . . well according to me anyways haha

So with these other sites, you have the choice to place a wager on one team only? Unlike Pro Line where you have to pick minimum 3 games? If so, interesting.........:D

I had a good night in Poker and won $250! hehe
But it didn't get good until the last hour because I kept on going down, down, down, up, up, up, down, down, up, down, up, up, down, up, up, up, up, up. I love the adrenaline that game brings! :D

Just wondering, if you win enough, do you have to claim lottery winnings on your income.

I figure that if I play enough money, and win at least 6 out of every 10 times, that I could make ~8000 dollars per year.

that cubs game was sweet

marlins paid out +240

that win was a big swing for me

10-15-2003, 02:03 PM
Stupid question, but what did the fan do in the cubs game to swing it? Did he throw a ball back or have it bounce off of him and then become fair or something?

Pretty much the Cubs outfielder was about to catch a foul ball for the second out of the 8th inning when a fan reached out and deflected the ball. So the ball was just called foul and the Marlins went on to score 8 runs than inning and win 8-3! :rofl:

God Damn Sens!!! 3 unanswered goals from the Kings!

Well I went 1-2 tonight. I actually broke even though. LOL

Boston would have been a nice pick tonight. I think they were paying 3.2!

10 games tomorrow night. Can't wait. :thumbsup:

Damn you Toronto!!! I'm never betting on them again!

Looks like I had a good night otherwise. Home team took all the wins last night.

Atlanta vs TB - Atlanta can only win so long on emotion...I think
Calgary vs Minnesota - Calgary win on the road?
St. Louis vs Edmonton - Damn you Oil for beating the Avs on Saturday!!!
Boston vs Colorado - I expected more from Colorado so I'm taking a chance with Beantown tonight.
Philly vs L.A. - This is the hardest decision...They're both playing good. I'll go with the home team though and I think I'll regret it.
Anaheim vs San Jose - I think Anaheim is due for a win and Federov is good for a couple points tonight.

Columbus at DetroitGo big on Detroit. They've lost 2 in a row.
Florida at NJ - I really don't want to make a pick here so I'll just take the longshot.
Carolina at Pittsburgh- Pittsburgh has this locked up.
Toronto at Dallas - Fuck you Toronto! Maybe if I bet against you, you'll actually win for once!
St. Louis at Vancouver - St. Louis is playing back-to-back and had to travel. They probably want revenge from last year though so this is a tough call. Osgood is playing well too!
Philadelphia at Anaheim - Anaheim 2 in a row? I don't think so.

roopi
10-24-2003, 07:28 AM
Well I was going to stop posting my picks but I guess someone was considering my advice so I'll keep posting them!

Friday October 24/03

Dallas vs Detroit - I have no frickin idea! This could go anyway. Hasek is starting for sure since Legace got the last start. Just bet on whoever pays more! :D
NJ vs Pittsburgh - If Fleury gets the start I say he'll win this for then Pens.
Minnesota vs Florida - Luongo is playing well. Hope he gets the start.
St. Louis vs Calgary - Honestly I'd call this a 2-2 tie.
Buffalo vs Anaheim - A couple of losers on winning streaks.
