$50 entrance fee to play fantasy football. If that doesn't count, next highest is $5 on the superbowl with a classmate in high school. I lost. :pointstosky:

If you think I'm matching wits with a group of people (sports bookies) who know more about each team and their players than the coaches of those teams, you're nuts.

$1000 on last years us tennis open..

i know..who the fock bets tennis?...

while the world yawned as roger federer breezed his way to another major..i collected my cash...

sure, it wasnt amazing long shot odds...but it was a safe bet...the sun coming up probably scored close to the same odds..

(doing it again for this jan Austrailian Open to make up for my ff losses) :cheers:

Im not sure I believe you. I've been sports betting for years and the largest bet I ever placed was $5,000 and you can imagine I obviously had a decent bankroll to place a wager of that size. So your either rich already, or completely retarted. And am I mistaken or are you a chick? Seems unreasonable to think a chick would place a bet of that size with strong possibility of not having great handicapping skills? :dunno:

$1,500 on the Ravens to cover in the playoffs 4 or 5 years ago against the Titans. That didn't quite work out as planned.

Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, it is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver. ~Jack Handey (VIA IronToeNedney)

$500.00 for the Cowboys to beat the Bills in one of the super bowls. I think Cowboys were favored by 10 and I was sweating it out at half time. I think the Bills were ahead until the Cowboys woke up but then I was sweating a garbage TD by the Bills at the end of the game.

:lol:

:ninja:


First off, the 'skins were getting 9.5 points this week against NO. If you are going to make a bet, you should know that you are either giving points (need to cover) or getting points.

I would prefer not to say what the largest bet that I have made is, but I have placed bets that are 7 figures.








Of course, that is more believable than your alias, so what the hell?

Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son.

Won around 11 grand on the Cowboys when they won and covered vs Green Bay on a Monday Night, the night Chris Boniol kicked 7 FGs to account for all of Dallas's points.

Won about 8 grand on the Eagles, when they were a home dog in the playoffs to Detroit during the Rodney Peete, Ricky Watters tenure. I finished off a ton of winning parlays and reverses with the Eagles.

Two biggest bets I ever made. Haven't bet over a grand on anything else. And nowadays, a one unit bet = $100

:cry:

This is the biggest bunch of bullshiot. First off, I don't know many bookies that would just take a $7,500 bet from a first time player. Next, I highly doubt losing $7,500 on a bet wouldn't have been a big deal to you. :mad:
