My OP bets resulted in a loss of about $1,090 (2.1825% of my bank roll),

Also, "Patriots win by exactly 7" prop, missed it by , \ 0 / that much
(it seemed to miss by about a quarter the width of the field, lol)

Also, too bad I didn't bet on the under, as the total I used was 50 to 52 points in working out the prop bets. I think O/U offered was between between 55.5 and 56.5 at most local sports books (within 24 hours of game-time).



Don't blame yourself. This was a crappy game. I was incredibly shocked by how bad it was and I I entertained thoughts of a rematch next Sunday between The Patriots and The Rams to rectify how bad this game was, sort of a Recount or something.

I made 6 prop bets with a WoV member.



Go ahead.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Has anyone else heard any good news around on such an outlandish result.

Apparently someone had a bet of $250 at 400/1 that Rams would score a total of three points. Now that's someone happy somewhere!

Ok. I made my side bets with Mike.

I risked $50 on each of these bets, with Mike giving what’s shown if they occurred.

YES Safety $337.50
YES Overtime $337.50
YES Successful 2 point conversion $115
YES Scoreless quarter $195
YES Interception ran for a TD $450
YES Missed extra point $130

So I owe Mike $250 for the 5 that lost. He owes me $195 for the scoreless first quarter. Net, I owe $55. It coulda been worse.

Note that I was barely even watching the game. I was at the Sands PA playing poker at the time. Today, I had to look it up to see if that one TD was an interception return. Sigh, nope.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗
