Aside from the Message Board pick 'em contest, how many of you regulary bet on games throughout the season? I'm planning to bet some this season, albeit small scale 25-50 dollar bets. If there are any, maybe we should pool information and share our selections each week.

I'm making my first bet of the season today. Taking the under 34 in the Carolina/Baltimore game tonight.

I will NEVER bet against the falcons, but usually don't bet on them either since I don't want to do anything to jinx them.

Thought?...Comments?

I use sportsbook.com. It is my favorite online betting site. Very reliable. Just google it.

I used to use them...but I have a hard time depositing there now. A couple years ago, they had problems with their banking, and actually sent me a check that bounced. I'm giving BetUs.com this year.

I always liked the free Perfect Parlay contest that Sportsbook.com did though.

i would save it for the regular season.

"I will NEVER bet against the falcons" Betting with your heart isn't good. You have to lock those feelings away.

Back in the NFC west days, I've made lots of money betting against the Falcons when the 49ers and Rams were good. There are going to be weeks when the Aints will be a great pick

Gonna through down a little coin on the Falcons win total for this year. Vegas has them listed at 9 wins.

I'll be taking the over. They went 9-7 last year against a tough schedule. As you can remember the Falcons drew all those tough teams coming off a bye week.

There pt differential was favorable and on paper...the team certainly looks better defensively than last years team. Just about everyone is back and they have added some talent on defense.

I'm trying not to be biased...but I see more than 9 wins for this team.

I put $50 on the Falcons to win it all. I dont usually bet on the birds because of obvious reasons. But I had to place this one. The odds I got were 25-1. I dont think we should be favorites or anything, but I think we have a better shot than they are giving us. If all things were equal, the odds would be 32-1. I think this team is a lot better than that.

Well i will try betting on NFL. I am almost sure that we will destroy Steelers in WK 1 so i will see what the odds are on that game.

I did alot of betting on basketball but most of the time i lost. I lost about 800 dollars and most of it betting on 2 playoff games. Good thing most of that money didnt come out of my own pocket, First time i built up my bankroll playing poker from $20 to around $390 or so and got a great idea to put $350 ON THE hawks to win against the Bucks in the playoffs. They lost that game... next time i ran $30 to $300 and bet all of it on the celtics in the finals game 1. They got destroyed but i was right that they had a good shot at winning because in game 2 celtics blew out the lakers and u know they went to game 7 eventually. I guess its just my luck.

Both games, if i had won i would have turned like $300 int $900 and that is what i was trying to do so that i can move up in stakes playing poker.

Oh and i would never bet on preseason games. That is pointless

Yah i agree with you.. We got a easier schedule, better team in my opinion (we didnt lose anyone good but we picked up a very good cb ), and you would think that we will have better luck with injuries this year.

they will definitely get more than 9 wins this year, how does that work? if i want to put 100 on the falcons going over do i have to pay now and wait like 4 months to actually get the winning money? Also what are the odds on my return if i actually win.

The over/under win total is probably an even money prop. You would pay 110 dollars now (100+10% juice). If you win, you are refunded your 110+100 for the win.

Can almost guarantee the problem is that your prepaid is a U.S. only card.They offer an international version and since most of these "bookies" are offshore they only accept international.That was a problem I had,so if you check your card and it says valid only in United States thats probably it..Hope that was helpful.

$10 in the hole so far. Tonights not so expert picks are:

Under 36 in Jaguars/Dolphins

Under 33 in Steelers/Giants

Panthers -1 1/2 over the Jets.

I post this so everyone can either see why gamblers never win, or so I can be crowned as a great Prognosticator. Based on past results, I don't expect the latter.
