Avoid The Pitfalls Of Sports Book Gambling And Respect Yourself In The Morning

When it comes to sports book gambling it is wisest to only bet money that you can afford to lose. Even if you only have $50 to your name until your next pay check, and you feel like wagering this $50 will earn you $300, you must weigh your options and determine where you’ll be if you lose that $50.

If you lose that $50 and you won’t have a way to eat or get gas to get to work, then you’ll be begging family for money and losing the respect of loved ones if you do. If you have no family to lean on, then there’s no telling where you’ll wind up or in what dire straits you’ll find yourself.

If that $50 can fill up your gas tank to get you to and from work and buy you some pasta and a few pounds of beef and vegetables for the next week or two, then you need to use your $50 for that. Even if you feel like you are the best sports book gambler in the world and the $300 would be so worth it.

In order to respect yourself and have the respect of others, you have to make responsible decisions. It’s very common to use gambling as a past time or even a regular way to make extra money. But you must try your best to never wager more than you can afford to lose. If you start to break these habits, you will begin find yourself in a dark place with your gambling.

Sports book gambling should not cause you to start to lose respect for yourself and your ability to care for yourself within reason, then it may become somewhat harder to rebuild your life financially. Every one does need help sometimes, but if you’re just in that situation because you were irresponsible, then you will not be happy with yourself and you will have a harder time reaching a state of productivity. Sports book gambling does not have to take you to this place. If you’re careful and responsible it will not.

Another thing that you should keep in mind is that even though you will probably be doing well with sports book betting, you might find yourself losing from time to time. In fact you should expect to lose regularly with your sports book bets. If you take losing as a fact of gambling, you will start to understand sports book betting in a way that will be highly lucrative to you. It’s simply a numbers game. Sometimes you will win and sometimes you will lose. You can plug along and play conservatively, (or simply never betting more than you can afford to lose) and you can one day find that you’ve create a nice little nest egg for yourself or a decent income with your sports book betting.

Sports And Sports Betting: The Quotes And The Quotable

From an NFL player alleged to be so cruel to dogs it should make you cringe, to an NBA referee who went on a sports betting binge, to a Tour de France rider with a syringe, it’s been an interesting few months in the world of sports and sports betting.

To be sure, this stuff matters to both sports bettors and online sportsbooks. Gamblers who bet on the Falcons in a myriad of different future books with their sportsbooks face the realization that their team probably will have to win without quarterback, Michael Vick, who was charged with a federal indictment on dog fighting and dog gambling.

Just how many NBA games were tainted due to the actions of referee Tim Donaghy remains unclear to all those except Tony Soprano.

And if you wagered with your favorite sportsbook on which rider would win the Tour de France, you can rip up your tickets on 5/2 favorite Alexandre Vinokourov and overall leader Michael Rasmussen, 60/1, each of whom was bounced from the event for substance abuse violations.

If there is a silver lining to these abuses it is that these sordid revelations have inspired journalists, athletes, administrators and just plain ordinary folks to be witty, innovative, humorous and, in some cases, just plain silly.

See for yourself.

“Now, granted he (Michael Vick) might have been to a dogfight a time or two, maybe five times, maybe 20 times, may have bet some money, but he’s not the one you’re after. He’s just the one who’s going to take the fall.”

–Former Cowboys great Emmitt Smith, offering his view on the Vick allegations

“If O.J. (Simpson) get can get away with murder, Michael Vick can get away with a few hurt dogs.”

–Maal Clayton, who identified himself as a graduate of the same high school as Vick

“Had the weirdest dream last night. Dreamt that Pacman Jones was bitten by Michael Vick’s dog while trying to steal Tank Johnson’s gun.”

–Greg Cote, the Miami Herald

“Greed is still central to the human condition and legalized gambling now is as close as the corner store or the nearest computer. Our growing cultural tolerance for games of chance has effectively blurred the boundaries separating entertainment from vice and avocation from addiction. In an age when professional sports franchises freely forge sponsorship deals with casinos, and team logos appear on state lottery tickets, it does not require much of a logical leap to wonder whether the games those teams play are completely above board.

“To describe Tim Donaghy as an isolated case, then, is optimism bordering on naivete.”

–Tim Sullivan, The San Diego Union-Tribune

“By trying to sneak doping practices past cycling officials, the riders are playing Russian roulette.”

–Christian Prudhomme, director of the Tour de France after Vinokorouv and Rasmussen were eliminated from the race. For the record, neither Vinokorouv (Kazakhstan) nor Rasmussen (Denmark), are from Russia.

Speaking of syringes:

“He’s a little midget man who absolutely knows jack shit about baseball, who never played the game before.”

–SF slugger Barry Bonds, after broadcaster Bob Costas raised suspicions that Bonds had used steroids

“As anyone can plainly see, I’m 5-6 1/2 and a strapping 150, and unlike some people, I came by all of it naturally. I regard Barry as one of the greatest players of all time who got an inauthentic boost and then became a superhuman player.”

–Costas, answering Bonds

“How do you know?”

Bonds, demonstrating why you should never argue with people who buy ink by the barrel, responding to Costas saying that he came by his physique naturally.

“On at least three occasions (in strip clubs), fights have broken out with other patrons and employees, and on two of those occasions the end result has been gunfire. All I know is what happens in Las Vegas stays in Las Vegas, sometimes for several years in a prison cell.”

–Scott Ostler, the San Francisco Chronicle, on the possible fate of Titans cornerback Pacman Jones

“The weirdest part is probably that they were back-to-back-to back. I mean, there was a distinct time between all of them but there wasn’t a musician thrown in there.”

–Actress Alyssa Milano, telling SI.com about her one-time dating rotation of pitchers Carl Pavano, Barry Zito and Brad Penny

Finding the Most Diverse Sports Store

Odds are, if you enjoy one athletic activity, you probably enjoy a few others as well. Finding people to keep up with your active lifestyle can sometimes be challenging, but finding gear doesn’t have to be. If you are determined to buy all of your sporting goods in one place, you will find that there’s a sports store for you.

Health and fitness are becoming a much more regular part of the society today, and with this increased interest in physical fitness, there are more stores selling the right equipment. Many chains are popping up around the country that offer all of the usual gear: running shoes, compression shorts, jump ropes, and all other varieties of equipment. Despite this, not every sports store carries everything that you need, especially if you are interested in more extreme outdoor activities.

When you have a real drive for that active lifestyle, you know that there is simply no good time to have down time. You have an activity for every season and for every occasion, always working to keep your heart pumping. During the summer, you might be caught playing some disc golf and during the winter your friends will find you skiing on the slopes. If this describes you, then you need more than the run of the mill sporting goods retailer.

Fortunately, finding a sports store that can keep up with your lifestyle is not a fantasy. In fact, many cities around the country have one or more all-purpose stores that offer this type of equipment. Rather than having to go from shop to shop hoping you find what you need, this helps eliminate your trips and allows you to get everything in one place.

Of course, the last thing you want to do is trade convenience for quality or price. In other words, you need to be careful when you find an all-purpose sports store to ensure that you are not purchasing inferior quality goods. Fitness and activity may be important, but inferior products could lead to injury, which is something you never want to endure. Similarly, buying your products in one place should help lower your overall cost, so don’t waste time shopping at a place that will inflate prices just because of the convenience factor.

Ultimately, a good sports store will offer equipment and apparel for a variety of different activities. Whether you are looking to get gear for your competitive sporting event or simply looking to prepare for another outdoors adventure, having the right store in mind can make your supply run that much easier. This will help ensure you always have the right equipment when you need it, and that you will never have a dull moment.

Top Ten Reasons A Scam Sports Book

A sports bettor has a difficult enough time attempting to beat
The odds without adding extra risk by not researching his
Sports book or monitoring its business. Just as a racecar driver
Will always check his equipment and wear his seatbelt, the sports
Bettor should monitor his vehicle to protect himself. Driving in
The fast lane does not mean driving reckless. Along with playing
At only top tier sports books, there are many traffic signs a
Player can watch for to avoid the highway pile up.

1. If a Sports book that has never offered a bonus over 10%, now
Offers a 25% Bonus with a low roll over.
2. If a Sports book offers a High Bonus with Reduced Juice – or
Other combination of offerings that look too good to be true, it
Probably is.
3. A Sports book with Obscure or Soft Lines can only mean one of
Two things: a lack of volume or that the book itself is gambling
On events.
4. When things are not going so well, a Sports book will increase
Prices. This alone is not a sign of problems. But if you see this
With any of the other items on this list, the book may be in
5. Keep an eye on a Sportsbook’s marketing campaigns? Watch for
Anything out of the ordinary – new or drastic changes like cold
Calling or excessive bonuses can represent a change in target
Audience or utter desperation.
6. If a Sports book representative posts a message in the forums
That’s a too good to be true “just for you” offer – the book may
Be getting ready to run for the hills.
7. If there is a sudden stop of all book-to-book transfers -
There’s a good chance it is due to at least one book halting
Transfers with them first. No one knows more about your house
Than your neighbor.
8. When a Sportsbook has frequent changes in management and
Shareholders – there is a new risk to the players.
9. When there is a slow/no pay dispute over a large amount of
Money from other player(s) – the book may be having financial
Troubles and cant pay.
10. If you are given excuses for non payout or your account is
Audited after the payout process is initiated the book may be

If you know what to look for, you don’t need to be paranoid.
Sometimes you smell smoke and there is no fire, and sometimes the
Scent leads to a life saving evacuation. In this industry, you
Have to sniff extra hard because there is no safety net. It is
Completely unregulated (with Australia being our exception) and
Only you are responsible for your funds.
