I placed $5,000.00 on the Vikings and got +3.5 points a bit ago.

Hopefully this will recover $5k from my $8k loss yesterday.

Thanks to my support peers and friendly PMs I received :) I sincerely do appreciate those.

How will it recover $5,000? My concern for you is that I'm unsure of whether or not you even grasp the rudiments of sports betting. If you got the Vikings +3.5, then you almost certainly had to lay something to get it.

And this goes back to unJon's point about explaining the -4 point line from yesterday. If he really got a -4 point line, he would have had to "buy" points or used some sort of alternative line which would have cost far more than the normal vig, which would have him down significantly more than $8000.

I mean he has made no mention of the normal vig, repeating that he lost $8000 yesterday, instead of $8800 (normal vig). It just comes across that MC has no to little idea of what he is talking about.

But now he is going to start chasing his losses. That always works!

I should also respectfully submit that we don't need a new thread for every individual day of your NFL betting, though that's entirely up to the Administrators here.

There are any number of threads that this could be added to, including the General Sports Talk thread or your thread for yesterday's bets. Alternatively, you could also ask that these be consolidated into a new (single) thread where you can detail your NFL betting.

Obviously, you're not under any requirement (that I am aware of) to prove that you have actually made any of the bets that you claim to have made, but particularly without any such requirement, I can't envision any reason that each bet (or day) should have its own thread.

I got -115 if that quenches your thirst to find out my wagering deal.

I was going to wait for MarcusClark to answer for himself on that one, but yes, that is the obvious answer in the event that he was able to get a -4 line...either that or a particular book having a VERY faulty line (unlikely) or a sportsbook doing him a personal favor (even more unlikely).

It also seems like a weird spread to buy your way to, at least, in my opinion. Why -4?

You reported it; not me. I saw both -115 and -125, so that's why I asked. If it's -anything, then obviously, you are not going to win $5,000 by betting $5,000...I was simply trying to help you out by making sure you actually knew that.

Yes I absolutely know I would not win a full $5,000.00 if the Vikings win.

By the way, the, "To Win," should appear on your ticket. If not, or if you want to know how much you stand to win on a given bet amount without asking, just do this:

5000 * (100/115) = 4347.82608696

Thus, you should stand to profit either $4,347.82 or $4,347.83 in the event that you cover.

That's good. In your OP, you said:

(Bold added to relevant caption)

Thus, I just wanted to make sure that you knew that you would not actually recover 5k of yesterday's losses, because that is not how having to lay works. I hope that you don't see a difference of several hundred dollars as being nitpicking, whatever the case, I posted that to help you.
