    I was always told props are sucker bets but i still had to learn the hard way lol. not familiar with if bets, why not jus parlay? was it possible to make that if bet a teaser instead? don't know what the odds are on no contest/dq but if someone was gonna bet the house on floyd those might be a good hedge

    Props are great bets especially for big events. Way more value than just betting Floyd straight up. More options to bet, meaning some bets are more likely to hit if you know the sport/event really well.

    If I parlayed the two, I would have required both to win to get my money. Since I did a IF bet, I get some winnings with the possibility of even more winnings. IF bets also allow me to place the bets at a different time (I placed the Broncos bet 2 days after the first bet).

    Parlays are sucker bets. Teasers are alright if you know what you're doing and don't tease down too many points.

    lol 'value' prop bets are more likely to hit then straight up? ok so with that logic looking at your slip i assume you think floyd winning by 12 rd decision is more likely then floyd straight up? please explain to me how that works. a lot of guys like to bet against the odds hoping to win a lot by risking little, whatever floats your boat brah.

    Thinking about making poke this weekend.

    What are some essential ingredients? What brand of shoyu should I use? Regular or low sodium?

    Why would I bet Floyd straight up and risk $535 for a measly $100 payout?
    Floyd via 12 rounds judges decision is one of the more likely outcomes and pays $248 for a $100 bet.

    Value betting is a pretty tough concept for a lot of people to understand, until they lose a lot of money when they bet on heavy favorites. Personally I don't like anything higher than -300 -- too much risk for not enough reward.

    If Bethesda makes another Elder Scrolls game. Please make it realistic. Like in Skyrim you can go up to the very top of snow covered mountains and don't get hypothermia,or go in the desert and don't get heat exhaustion. They should have weather and how it effects the character in the game.

    Also should have a fame/infamy thing in it. Like i saved the world from Alduin,Joined the Stormcloaks and drove the Empire out,and defeated a vampire menace. Would like the NPC's to acknowledge it somehow.

    Nah not a tough concept, just not for me. im more of a you gotta bet big to win big kind of guy. I don't just bet favorites that'd be just setting myself up. I simply bet on who I think will win regardless of the odds. 'value' guys like to bet underdogs. not because they think the dog will win but because they think the line is off and the dog will probably lose but just not as likely to lose as the oddsmakers think. I see zero 'value' in that shit lol.

    I can see that those Uber and Lyft drivers still have to learn like the cab drivers. Treat it like a REAL business and keep your overhead down...like slow down and don't get tickets that will offset your income....LOL
