I experienced something last night that made me think this would be a good thread. I'm thinking we share gambling stories for close misses, big scores etc. My story is about sports betting. So a bunch of my friends are big in to sports betting. I personally haven't bet on sports in ten years since I was in college betting $10 per game and realizing that I'm terrible at it going with my gut or against my gut. It just never works out for me. Anyway, so my buddy put 97 dollars down on a ten team parlay. He informed us last night as he got his sixth game right. 7, 8, and 9 were on Cal Northridge, Cal Riverside, and Pepperdine. I should mention here that the payout on this bet was over 61k. He ends up hitting on all three of these games by at least 5 points against the spread so now we're fading the UCLA-Stanford game for 61 thousand dollars. Unfortunately, the game started while the last three were around half time so hedging the bet was not an option. It's all or nothing. He had Stanford +6.5. At halftime stanford was down 12. With 4 minutes to go, they were within 9. In the end, Stanford lost by 17. From the penthouse to the outhouse. It was pretty exciting though.
