I just kind of figured that it was time for some words on a keyboard to a screen on your computer into your brains.
On Wednesday I decided to fire up my Sports Connection app so that I could make sure I had a wager placed on the Thursday night game and so that I could get a parlay card in that included it.
I felt pretty confident about the Colts taking and I thought that the spread was a bit low no matter how good J.J. Watts is so I put my $5 on the Colts.
Then Yesterday (Thursday as I am typing this Friday no matter what day you actually read it) I'm at work and taking a break close to 5pm and someone starts talking about Football and I get a text from a buddy in the Fame or Shame league (currently he is one of the shamed) and he tells me he is taking the Colts for his pick this week.
At this moment all I can think of is that I need to put a bet on the Colts, completely forgetting that I already had done exactly that. So, I fire up the app again (and don't bother to look at the action I already have going) and see that the spread is something like Colts -5.5 and the Over/Under is at 46.5. I decided the Colts were going to win by at least a touchdown and probably put up 35 themselves so I booked a two team Parlay with the Colts and the Over.
I got to look at the score during the first quarter and saw it was 24-0 and thought that I had the Colts but that the Over might not happen unless the Texans had some garbage time scores.
I saw the score at halftime where both teams had already combined for 41 points and thought that this was going to be easy peasy, one more Touchdown and the Colts just had to be the team in the lead in the end.
When the game ended I looked at my account and noticed I just won two bets and smiled a little while adding the approx $20 extra bucks into my account.
When I opened up my account I put $50 into it (and have not reloaded) and right now my account currently sits at $107.75 plus two other wagers (parlay's for $5 each) so I have over doubled my money which is nice.
I'm trying to find a few other games to put some money on during this weekend that I feel will be sure things. On a parlay I have Denver at -8 and the line is currently sitting at -9.5 and I don't want to put anything else on them as that line keeps going up.
I'm also trying to look for a couple of "sure fire" college games but with my lack of college knowledge I generally have to scour the internet and look at what the smart people are saying to get that kind of information. But, that's what I'll do after I stop typing this tonight and tomorrow before I have to head into work again.
Work has been running me ragged lately but come November 1st I will be down to just one department and I chose the one I am least familiar with so that I could challenge myself while trying to prepare to move to the next level of management.
I've got two more strat games to post, one win and one loss and it looks like the last one from the first block of 4 games is going to be computer generated as I don't think I'm able to hook up with my opponent.
Time to go play some video games before I fall asleep.
