Gambling is not a vice, it is an expression of our humanness. We gamble. Some do it at the gaming table, some do not. You play, you win, you play, you lose. You play.
Let's talk about Sports Betting. It's a thing.
I read the other day that 15% of Americans said they will bet on NFL games this year. Twelve states and D.C. have legalized some form of sports betting since 2018. That number is going to grow. Not forgetting to mention the Off-Shore betting sites. The stigma surrounding it has gone away.
I like to bet the NFL, NBA & some NHL once in a while but chances are if people are playing it, you can bet on it legally now. Since I live in Nevada, going to a sportsbook is easy for me but what about you folks where it's just starting?
What are your thoughts on sports betting? Do you bet? Can you? What sports? How/where? Who do you follow or ignore? How's your handicapping?
This is a place to talk about anything and everything related to the world of betting on sports. Upset wins, bad beats, strategy. There is a LOT to talk about.
If anyone is interested in learning, please check-in. No experience is required. Believe me, I'm no genius.
A couple of closing thoughts...
A gambler never makes the same mistake twice. It’s usually three or more times.
and most importantly,
I want people to understand, gambling is not a bad thing if you do it within the framework of what it’s meant to be, which is fun and entertaining.
