We met 4 different guys(non-Mizzou fans) during the week who when seeing us in our Mizzou gear told us to bet the farm that it was a done deal,no problem,Mizzou was going to cover the -3.5.

So of course I'm thinking sure,sure wished I could be so confident and then when heading to the the bet cage to place my Mizzou bet I was stopped by a 5th guy,east coast I guessed because of the accent and he says,"load up on your boys,they're going to cover."

Now I'm not a big time bettor but the 5th guy and more than a few 7 and 7's at least gave me the courage to put $200 on the game and now here I sit wondering if 5 separate guys really knew something or not.

All I know is that in all my sports history I don't think I've ever enjoyed something so much as being in a Vegas casino with $200 on my team and watching an ending unfold like that one to win a bet.

I freaking had your number in my phone wrong. Didn't have net access to get the number either. Pissed me right off.

I tried looking for you (based on my memory from your pics) but couldn't.

I had a great time as well.

I had 450 on Mizzou. That cover was unbelievable.

odds?

Was a spread, so I am assuming 90% payout.

Awesome dude,how did you do overall?

I made 61 bets,went 31-29 and 1 push and netted $390,so I'll take it.

Yep,however I did do a 3 team big 12 parlay and won with Texas cover against Duke,Oklahoma cover against Michigan and MU cover against Marquette.

I can tell you when we left yesterday the odds of Mizzou winning it all were 25/1 and KU was 22/1

I basically went 11-20 on 31 bets.

The good thing is I was only down 150 and most of the losers were cheap 30 dollar bets.

I lost out on 3 parlays by 1 point each time.

Pissed me off.

Still a great time.

Nah, did all sports betting.

I suck at all of them. Love to play poker, but it's just not my game.

Did you end up at the hoops central?

My group was stationed right in front of the deli (no one ever sat in those seats) in the Hilton Sportsbook.

Carlota's radio station didn't get the gig because some dumbass at the Hilton booked Manilow for the weekend in the theatre,so she joined us at The Flamingo for part of a game on Saturday.Once we found out you could bring any booze and food you wanted into the Hoops party at Flamingo we hit the liquor store everyday and went on the cheap so we had more cash for gambling.

My horror story at the tables was at Let It Ride,I was sitting at 1st base and down $200 with $100 left and opted to move to 3rd position leaving a guy at 2nd who now got 1st deal.I SWEAR he got 3 of a kind dealt to him in the next 5 hands with a chip on each including the 3 card bonus and I almost cried.

Thankfully,I did hit 4 Aces on a $5 video poker play that netted $400 and 4-2's another time that got me $325

I'm an old Wayne Root-type bettor who looks at a line & says it doesn't make sense so you bet the opposite of what you think makes sense...wins about 67% of the time when I get a real WTF feeling.

IMHO...Memphis should easily be 8-12pt favorite in this game. I see the line & I'm thinking WTF....which means that Mizzou wins. I'm not touching it though but I'm getting a WTF feeling in this game.

Just driving home from the restaurant and was listening to Anderson's PC and thought the same thing.Monday in Vegas the line was -5,when we left yesterday it was down to -4.5

Never made it to the Hilton....damn it. :# But I do LOVE that town. Ended up losing $300 overall, but the $200 on the Zips vs Zags in the first half was epic. Friday, 85 degrees ...... Sunday uh....not so much. Think MU has a real shot w/Memphis and think KU better get someone other than Cole and Collins to score or they could be in deep do-do. Villanova vs. Duke should be a great match-up. Hell....Syracuse vs. OU for that matter....awesome tourney!
Wish I was in Vegas again tomorrow!!
