Nover to a Nunder
Posted by Sam on April 3, 2018
I bet the NCAA tournament this year with reasonable success except for one specific aspect of betting: PARLAYS!
Throughout the tournament I was about +$250 or so excluding Parlays.
I was probably 0/6 on parlays leading into last night, which put me about +50 on the tourney as a whole.
What was the bet last night? NOVER! AKA, parlay Nova -7 and over 145, $40 to win $105. EASY. MONEY.
I told Tom and Evan to join as well, which they both did.
I watched the game knowing Nova would cover, but the 145 was shaky. With two minutes left we needed 8 points. Then it happened. Michigan gave up. That was it. The game ended and the total score was 141. God. Damnit. Why are parlays so difficult?
I sheepishly checked my account and to my surprise, I had $105 more than before the game… What happened? Was it 135 instead of 145?
No, even worse. I accidentally parlayed the NUNDER! (mobile betting is much more error prone).
So while Evan and Tom ended the tournament on a sour note, I donked my way to a +$150 on the tourney.
Did I feel bad? Not really. I genuinely thought I bet the Nover.
It just goes to show you, no one knows shit about sports betting. You’re betting off making picking the wrong thing by accident.
