  • What's your worst gambling habit?

    Everyone has bad habits in life, and bad habits as gamblers as well. What's your worst gambling habit?

    Mine is probably being too cute, and taking a side and total on the same game. Take today, I take the Celtics as underdogs, and I take the over in the game. Celtics win big, and the game stays under and I have absolutely nothing to show for it, except a small loss with the juice. Extremely frustrating. I keep reminding myself "be more decisive". Taking a side and total on the same game, means you need a perfect score. That's one aspect I'm trying to clean up.

    Not going for the big kill at the racetrack.

    Years ago, I remember oddsmaker Michael "Roxy" Roxborough saying you can't be afraid to win big.

    I dream of hitting a 50-cent Pick 5 in SoCal five or ten times.

    Problem is, it's only a dream because I'm not invested in the Pick 5 regularly.

      Picking up the phone during heavy drinking. Drinking and gambling never works out for me.

        DotPark, I havent had a drink or smoked any weed in over 2 years. Yet I lost so much of my money in life when I was doing both and gambling as well, thinking I was in control. One's judgment gets totally blurred when that happens.

          Mine is the wanting to wager on what I want to root for rather than looking objectively at the game.

            Interesting.

            I'm totally detached from teams emotionally, but I do favor teams with smart coaches and smart players.

              Sometimes I forget to check who the squares are on. Very frustrating.

                        Keep up the good fight Knuckles. I know it is not easy.

                          For the most part, not an issue for those that have done it for a living 10+ years.

                              Betting a price because it’s going to move, even though I don’t care for the play.
