    I got some junk mail that said there is a line on the first pick in the NBA draft. James Wiseman to be the 1st pick (+700)

    I do not gamble, but thought this could be fun and a bit silly.

    I am microbetting:

    Ball over 2.5 (so not top 2) -143
    Hayes over 7.5 -215
    Nesmith over 11.5 -240
    5+ freshmen in top 10 picks -125

    so all better than 50% chances

    Wiseman as first pick is +900 on DraftKings so a better price

    Is betting on the Draft not allowed in PA? I don’t see it anywhere on any of the 3 sites I use.

    there are state-by-state quirks.

    I remember there was one weird event that PA approved but NJ didn't.

    as for my picks, I just stumbled onto that nightly ESPN sports betting show with Doug Kezerian and friends.

    it was entertaining, and the rationales for their picks seemed persuasive.

    I had to turn off the NFL part, though, because my top 5 NFL weekly picks are 28-21-1 this year against the spread and 75-54-6 for 2019-20 - and if any of those dudes had that winning pct, it would take up half the screen for the entire show.

    Ugh, I lost 3 3-leg parlays with the Vikings loss vs Dallas. Unbelievable.

    what a ride

    today I had:

    Titans +6 vs Ravens. BAL ties it at the end, so OT and I could get "push-ed" but TEN wins by 6

    Eagles +3.5 vs Browns. Eagles lose by 5, as Browns collect 9 points on a pick-6, extra, point, and safety. #cmonman

    Chargers -8.5 vs Jets. LAC leads by 12 in the red zone, mid-4th quarter against NYJ sorry D. but settle for a FG for 34-19. NYJ scores with 4 minutes left to 34-26. that's the rough final, except LAC took a safety in end zone on final play for 34-28. at least that didn't beat anyone's point spread.

    Colts -1.5 vs Packers. GB 28-14 at half, but IND scores 17 straight and has the lead and the ball near midfield, under 3 minutes left. IND called for a hold on every play - they had 9 holding calls in the game (!). GB gets ball back after poor IND playcalling with almost 2 minutes left around their own 10. of course Rodgers marches down the field - even into the red zone - and they tie it. IND finally wins in OT.

    2-3 with 5 "sweats."

    now riding VEG +8.5

    Got slaughtered at 1 pm, losing three overs and a parlay. Made a comeback at 4 with the Cook/Zeke over 157.5 rushing yards, the over in the night game and the Carr/Mahomes over 4.5 TDs (which hit with 30 seconds left) to finish down about $10. I’ll take it.

    Free $25 on DraftKings on Thursday. Even money up to $25 if either the Steelers or Ravens score a TD.

    Where do you see this?

    I'm seeing this: Bet the BAL-PIT game and get a free bet on that team to win the AFC North (big whoop, PIT is -5000 to win the division)
