That was the worst bad beat I've seen in long time. Who had the pacers +7.5?

I bet. They're up 12 mid way in the 4th to lose by 8. Hell up 2 with less than a minute.  I don't get the stupid foul with 2.6 left

I just lost on the Tampa Lightning 4 times in a row.

I lost an NCAA tourney bet on a foul shot with 1 second left.

So guess no one listen to @Lester_in_reno for a little while when betting.

I lose for a while then I win for a while.

Its entertainment.

Cant believe some guys actually try to make a living betting on sports.

I think it would drive you insane

A professional sports bettor named James Holzhauer is currently doing awesome on Jeopardy.

Just set the record with $110,914 in one episode and has the top 4 all-time daily winnings.

His take-home so far of nearly $700k in 10 wins is only behind Ken Jennings $2.5M over 75 episodes.

Holzhauer grew up in Naperville, Illinois, and graduated from the University of Illinois in 2005 with a bachelor's degree in math. He spent time running a poker strategy website and built a bankroll for a future in sports betting.

Las Vegas sportsbooks sources confirmed to ESPN that Holzhauer is a respected bettor. Holzhauer told ESPN he has been betting on sports since 2006 and that he started by focusing on baseball futures before gravitating to football, basketball and hockey.

"Now, I focus largely on in-game betting, where the oddsmaker often struggles to put an accurate line with only few seconds to think about it," Holzhauer told ESPN in an email. "I think my work is similar to an investment bank, except that I'm the analyst, trader, fund manager and day trader all into one."

Ehh I only bet on sports games once in a while, sometimes when I get a hunch on something or my Dad gets a hunch on something. You know sometimes just that feeling. Made a joke once though that i should charge a friend of my commission when he asks my opinion on a bet he is going to place.
