pressure is building on legal U.S. sportsbooks as advertising and promos have kept most from being profitable in the last quarter

of the publicly traded companies only FanDuel showed a profit in the last quarter

FanDuel has a 47% market share - DraftKings and BetMGM control another 35% between them


from the article re Casesar's______


"When legal sports gambling went live in New York at the start of this year, Caesars ran an even more generous promotion: a deposit match up to $3,000, plus a $300 bonus. Caesars achieved 40 percent market share in what has become the highest-betting state - (New York) (at least before Californians vote in November on whether to legalize sports gambling). But Caesars needed to rein in its promotion within weeks, and its market share in New York has fallen to about 21 percent, per Eilers & Krejcik."

I haven’t looked at matchups/odds yet, but I plan on betting today against teams that have clinched a playoff spot and position, like the Mets, Braves, Dodgers, Astros, etc…Their managers will be resting starters, and specifically using pitchers that might not even be good enough to make the post season rosters.

Yesterday I did the opposite! Parlayed 3 teams that were looking for wins, Mets, Braves, Cardinals. Cardinals had big ninth inning comeback! Also had Yankees/Cardinals figuring Yanks still trying until Judge hit number 62. I’ll be betting against Yanks today. I think I’m going to take a bunch of overs as well, as I’m expecting bottom of the barrel pitchers will be trotted out there all day.

Over the past year there have been offers including free bets, profit boost, etc… for WS winner. This is what I have left.
Braves +$1150
Yankees +$825
Mets +$456
Astros -$107
Dodgers -$125
Anyone else -$350

I think I’ve gotten over $100 worth of free bets and the like for these bets that I’ve already used.

I think the Dodgers are most people’s pick to win it all. But the Mets have a really good threesome of DeGrom, Scherzer, and Bassitt. The Braves just crushed the Mets threesome. Let the games begin!

I had the over in the White Sox game yesterday. Game started at 3 central. At 3:45 I went on DK to check my account and I had already been credited for the win. It was 9-0 in the 2nd inning.

My reasoning was same as yours.

I just spread all my free bets across futures. I’m at around $500 for most teams. $1000 for the Dodgers.

Mine were different amounts at different times using a variety of different offers. I still get an extra bonus for every series the Astros win. Could in theory be 3 free bets. When I added it all up I had bet $350 in real money.

I needed to make a $100 bet today to get an offer. I am probably one of the few Americans happy that Helsinki tied Ludogoretz. It was 1-1 with 15 minutes to go and I bet the draw at -175. That’s $57for the good guy!

Needed to make random $50 bet for promo. Saw Bills now will be without…. Both starting safeties…. starting corner…. Corner who filled in for starting corner…. number one tight end…. Number 3 WR…. Maybe number 4 WR….. possibly 2 DL…. Possibly MLB….

As bad as Pittsburgh is, and they are bad…. Took them plus 14…. That’s what the line was before a bunch of these injuries….. Poyer and Knox are the two big ‘new’ injuries.

I’ll be surprised if line stays that high….

See, you do not need a secondary if the opposing team cannot complete a pass lol

I took the Bills for the picks contest, though have not laid out any real money yet. They are averaging a 14 point win, the last 2 weeks could be a fluke. They are probably looking to show they are still the team to beat. The Steelers just let the Jets walk all over them at home. Away against a good team? I say fugheddabaddit.

Here is another thing. The Steelers lose this week and they have to be at "write the season off" with what will be 4 losses when 7 total losses pretty much means no playoffs. So they go down big early, and look for that, well, at halftime guys may be booking golf vacations for January,

Let me say how liberating it is to only care about a point spread in sports. Well, that is a lie. I also care about over/under.
