The time NOT to be at a live sportsbook is when your team is slumping. Allow me to explain where this is coming fromâ€¦.
Earlier this month, I sold my house and left the Bellevue, WA area after two years. On the day the house closed, I headed for South Lake Tahoe, CA where I’d spent many a long weekend. They have casinos and sportsbooks right across the state line in Stateline, NV. While I was there, my favorite team â€” the Cincinnati Reds â€” played a total ofÂ six games. They lostÂ five of themÂ â€“ andÂ I lost each and every one for $200 each. The one game they did win was in the morning, and I’d overslept and was not able to get a bet down on that game.
There. I feel better.
You can make a bet on the Reds â€” or against the Reds if you have any sense â€” at any one of a number of online sportsbooks. I personally recommend Intertops, which is currentlyÂ giving awayÂ to new customers a $20 free bet after making your first $20 bet. You can also try USDBET.com, which is currently running a 100% match up to $200 for new members.
