Anyone here gamble on online betting sites?

I usually destroy at baseball betting, I have a friend who's incredible at it and I just shadow his bets. I have been placing some bets unsuccessfully via the NHL playoffs as well. Out here in Canada we have a betting network called Sports Select, the only problem is you have to hit every bet in order to win. This is one of the reasons I prefer online betting, you can multi-bet lose 3 and still come out a winner if your longshot hits. I also like that you're able to bet on anything from car races to golf, to cricket if you feel so inclined. How do any of you fair at this?

Have been waiting for a topic about sportsbetting ... been doing it for quite some time and it a very fun challenge I think. Actually baseball is kinda one of these sports where you can put 1 winners and 2 looser and still end up making money at the end of the day! That's mainly what I love about betting baseball. NHL playoffs are killing me as well Jeff... use to have a nice ''system'' during the regular season but when playoffs arrive ... it worth crap so I sitting it out pretty much unless something obvious come up a good spot to sneak in a bet. Mainly focusing on baseball for now, been following a couple good cappers and its rolling pretty well, having a hard to capping my own games for now tho I need more stats.

Ya all my "sure things" have been crapping out this year other than detroit vs columbus. I thought calgary would give a better challenge to chicago, as well as st.louis and van. Oh well as long as A Canadian team is in there I will cheer for them, although the bets don't seem as safe.

Could not agree more. Did you place any series bet? I personally didn't and kinda glad I didn't because as of now it would not look so good. Sometimes I prefer to wait a couple games and go for a long shot at some high odds ... its stays a longshot but sometimes worth it when you are on the right side!

I took the Habs, Calgary, Detroit,Washington,and Vancouver, not the best picks I'll be lucky if I make my money back thus far.Speaking of baseball, have you seen Romero pitch for Toronto yet? He's unreal so far, if you bet on a Toronto game and see him pitching, take the Blue Jays for sure.

Well Montreal killed me! I was hoping they'd at least make a sereis of it, Vancouver's Luongo is absolutley unstoppable at the moment so I'll def take VAN in next round, although they have a pretty long rest. San Jose played awsome last nite and they're back in the series now as well. Detroit will destroy columbus and hopefully Ovechkin can turn it on as well. Still a chance to make some scrilla here , I'm crossing my fingers!

Having too much of a hard time to bet hockey right now I decided to stay away for awhile might get back in in the next round. Baseball is serving me well right now so if its ain't broken don't fix it!
