    I got the O/U at 135.5 for the game, UVA goes to OT...and still doesn’t really threaten the Over. Incredible. Even in a year where its offense is better than typical Handsome Tony teams, the Hoos are an Under machine.

    I'm taking Wake and Miami to both beat the spread ... so you know what to do, take the other side.

    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    You have to be deep into negative numbers for anyone to adapt that strategy. (And yes that is what passes for strategy in the book of degenerate gambling theory, page 133.) I ascribe to the theory of "guessing randomly" and thus I'm getting vigged to freaking death.

    I certainly have an interesting betting history.

    Should I give up betting against the spread?

    I really thought I was going get positives yesterday. Maybe tonight.

    Congrats, Jason, on getting out of the cellar. (Sorry, AGDukeSky)

    I've attempted to share my love of the sport with my son but it never really caught his eye until now. Amazingly, he's in the middle of the pack. Turning it into an internet contest is what's getting him hooked, and my wife is getting alarmed that I'm turning him into a gambler. Chalk this up as another reason she hates this contest (the other reason being that I occasionally cheer when our opponents make meaningless baskets to help us hit the over).

    Want to team up? I'm not exactly lighting it up, but it looks like we can help each other.

    No. Bet ATS exclusively. Your luck is bound to change.

    Was that reverse psychology? I see what you did there!

    Wow, best day yet yesterday. This is likely my high water mark.

    Still, I was lead degenerate for a day. That ranks up there with passing the bar exam and my first colonoscopy for proudest achievements!

    Wow, great picking OPK! And props to brlftz and Bob Green, too!

    I enjoy this contest in chase mode better than as the leader, but did you have to make it so tough?

    I will revert to norm soon, then sink below it. Likely by the end of the weekend.

    We're all just lucky that Bob Green is apparently on limited minutes and only betting occasionally.

    It was only a matter of time that the Degenerates Gambling thread would revert to a discussion on minutes.

    We need a Ruling.

    Are we allowed to wager on the upcoming St. John's game? It's not a 100% ACC game. Just want to get a ruling before the game itself so there is no problem after.

    Old Phikus is doing pretty good ATS. I'm number 2 at the O/U and el stinko ATS. Is there a way for me to see what the Phikus bets ATS so I can ride his (or her?) coattails?

    Sadly, nothing to bet today or tomorrow. I will stay in the negative cellar until Saturday.
