Anyone else here bet?

Kinda pissed now cause I lost like 200 bucks on Holland v Tunisia. But fuck it I usually win back double from what I lose.

I put 100 on USA to beat Mexico today and I got 100 on Washington Capitals to beat Rangers tonight.

USAarent really that bad in soccer you can laugh at this all you want but they usually beat Mexico anyways. Odds are 1.90 so im good in that.

Mexico seemed to be really good at one point but I think USA sur passed them. Plus USA is playing home :D

Rangers suck, so I picked Caps tonight. Caps are hot, Rangers are losing games left and right.

Even lost 10-2 to Dalas recently. hahha imagine what the Caps are gonna do to them :D

I expect a 4-1 win for Caps.

Mexico hasn't won in the US in 10 years. The US is 8-0-2.

Smart bet going with the USA.

Yep. Im more worried about a draw tho not Mexico winning. But I dunno if it will be a draw. I see USA winning by 2 goals personally.



But really, the odds were great for Holland and they played with all their stars and still didn't win :? Them fuckin Tunisians were playing for a draw not to win. Soon as Holland scored the first one I thought I had that shit in the bag. Then them mother fuckers started to actually play and scored like 4 mins later : |

Than they just did what they did the rest of the game, play defensively for the draw.

Thats also why I don't bet on soccer much. Unless im REALLY sure. Like I was today with Holland vs Tunisia. :lol:

Cause you got 3 options. Win, Lose, or Draw.

But I won last night with Brazil(v Italy) and Ukraine(Slovakia).

In NHL you get either win or lose :P

I put on about 8 or so 5 buck multi's and missed on 3 of em by one game thanks to germany, holland and the czech fagpublic. If any one of those cocksuckers won i would got at least $200 bucks. No big deal, theres always the weekend.

Seriously tho, not much your fault. Cept the Czech one. That was a stupid bet imo. Czech is not really good... lol.

Holland I was 100% sure on that shit, but fuck. I didn't bet on Germany cause their odds sucked balls.

Care to share?

Well Washington lost.... but I made it up with USA Mexico.

Right before the game I max-ed out my bet. So I had total of 275 $ on USA. Surely paid off!

I just put 150 on Canadiens vs Oilers on less than 5.5 goals.

Might put some money on Schalke to beat Bohum this weekend. Undecided yet tho.

I was gonna say. I haven't checked any hockey scores today, been studying all day, but with the Montreal and the way their goalies have been playing I would've took the over at 5.5.

But yeah, that USA bet was smart money.

Edit:

Also, I had this theory last year with the Blue Jays that if you bet the under in every game last season, like 10 bucks under every single game you'd win money. I'm pretty sure it was true. I'm modifying that to the Washington Capitals this year but take the over. I haven't really seen the lines that they come up with but just looking at the team I feel as if it would work. :P

Yea the USA game was easy money.

Thats good, but Id have higher hopes with the Pitts Pens.

They are the best stylistic team on the over 5.5 .

For one, they probably have the best up front duo with Malkin and Crosby so your bound for a lot of goals. And they have pretty poor defense as of late, so they are bound to get goals scored on them.

I like to bet on the Pens but they are kinda unpredictable team as of late. So usually when they play a decent ranked #5-11 team or so, id defiantly go for the over. Dunno tho id have to look at the stats and stuff.

Kinda weird for me to explain but yea. Tomorrow don't seem like any good games to bet on, ill see tho.

Maybe if the odds are good ill go with Philly over the Sens and Wings over Wild. Also maybe the Sharks over Buff but im not sure on this one

Holy fuck!

It looks like I made a mistake with my bet of 150 on the Canadiens game going under 5.5 :lol:

I picked the wrong bet and picked the Ducks vs Flames game on the under 5.5

:lol: :lol:

hahah wow my luck :D I won my 150 back plus an additional like 120 or so 8)

Im picking Carolina tonight tho. Def puttin 100 on em.

Carolina has won 15 of its last 16 home meetings with Florida. Also with Panthers struggling a bit with the Leafs kinda proove it to me. Hurricanes haven't played in 4 days....so they are well rested and ready. Panthers are playing the day after so im sure they might be a bit tired since the games to. 13 goals in last 3 games also convince me too for Carolina. This is gonna be a good game folks.

Picks tonight:

Carolina over the Panthers

There are 3 types of format odds, all the same amount of money, just shown differently. So let me explain them:

Decimal formats:


I personally use this one. Its decimal type and simple. So for example ill use the game im betting on tonight.

Florida Panthers v Carolina Hurricanes

Im betting on Carolina to win, the odds are 1.74 to win

I put a bet of 100$ on Carolina. That means if I win, i get 74$ profit.

Panthers are at 2.15

The higher the odds, the lower the chance of them winning are. So if you wanna bet 100$ on Panthers to win, subtract 100 from 215 and you get the total amount of money you will get if Panthers win. So if you risk 100$ you gain 115$ profit if they win.

Dunno if your a high risk er but ill use 10$ as a example:


If you wanna bet 10$ on Panthers, multiply 10 by 2.15

In this situation you will get 21.50$ total. So that means, if Panthers win, you will get 11.50$ profit.

If you put 10$ on Carolina, and they win, you get 7.40$ profit.

US Format:

This format is based off of 100$. So if you wanna bet big, use this format because it will show you what you have to risk to win 100 bucks.

Once again, ill use Carolina vs Panthers.

The odds on Carolina to win are at -135. That means you have to risk 135$ in order to win 100$ profit.

Now Ill use the Panthers as an example too to clarify the plus(+) of this format. Their odds at winning in US Format are +115.

That means, if you bet 100$, and Panthers happen to win, you gain 115$ profit.


I dunno how the UK format does cause im not good in fractions :lol:

So basically, use the decimal odds. I use them and I think they are much more simple format imo.

Plus on intertops site, just click on the bet you wanna do and the amount you wanna bet on the right hand side, and it will show you the total amount of money you will have. Just subtract the money you put on that bet to see how much profit you get.


I know this shit sounds kinda confusing a little, but after a few bets you will get the hang of things. I did. First bet I ever made was Adamek to beat Cunningham and won like 400$ :D

Feel free to ask anything else

That looks like a good pick.

I made some decent money betting on the Coyotes and Sens last night.
