Wagering (legally , but of course) on the Hawks

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • Does anybody here have any money at stake from futures bets? Like bets from this summer to win the NFC West or the Regular season wins or the NFC Championship or the Super Bowl? Or maybe even individual player props? What's at stake and how are they looking?

  • I heard Largent80 put 1000 bucks down on the Hawks to win something. Saw it somewhere on this board.

  • I put 390 down to win 300 on them winning more than 7.5 games. Also 50 to win 200 for the NFC West title, at least there's still hope.

    I also had WAS at over 6.5 games and ATL to win over 9 which has already hit.

    I'm a degenerate. The Seahawks have done pretty well for me this year though. And Harbaugh not taking that safety saved me like 200 bucks.

    I put $1000 on the Hawks to win the SB. Still have a chance, so I guess it is looking good? I don't have my betting slip in front of me, and haven't looked at in a bit, but I believe the odds were 30:1 or somewhere near that.

    ^Okay, well I don't know if maybe you are part of his schtick or however you spell it but I'm not talking about Monopoly money. He claimed he got 16-1 odds on Seattle winning 8games and anybody who knows anything about gambling knows it doesn't work like that. 16Grand! yeah, right!! I'm asking for honesty from degenerate gamblers-not dishonesty from plain old degenerates. LOL.

    Nice!! Although your odds were probably better than that. The Seahawks are CURRENTLY 33-1 to win the SB.

    I got them at 79-1 in March for the Super Bowl and 36 to 1 to win NFC also in March.

    This was right before the preseason started, and like I said I haven't looked at it but once or twice since then. I don't think it is significantly more than 30. I will look at it when I get home.

    Are you implying I currently live in a trailer? Ha. Anyway, I promised I would by my oldest son a new car with the money, since he was the inspiration for the bet.

  • I win a few grand if we get one more victory for over/under on total wins.

    And my division bets are still alive

    But the one I missed out on was Seattle TO MAKE THE PLAYOFFS at +270. Loved the bet but had no more money to invest! LOL!! Oh, we'll. perspective and fun and enjoy the wins when they come right?

  • I was in Vegas all weekend and put $200 on the Hawks Saturday night. Got back $565 on that one, and I put 1 large on the "Over" in the pre season. In other words Vegas set the line at 7.5 wins. Since it is impossible to get a half win, all I need to cash is 1 more Hawk win and at 16 to 1 odds. So, if the Hawks win 1 more game, I win $16,000 smackeroonies. I thought this was the easiest bet I have ever made, and I wish I would have went with a much larger amount.

    There's no way you got 16 to 1 odds on an over/under win total bet. Are you sure you're reading the ticket right? Does it say +160?

    I was about to put down $200 on them and got cold feet. Oh me of little faith. I did win several hundred betting on the Skins and the Texans. Lost a couple of hundred betting on the Jets to beat NE. That was an idiot bet.

    Just found my slip. 30:1 odds, placed at the Monte Carlo on April 21st, 2012. Not sure if you can look up what the odds were at that time, but believe me I WISH they were 50:1.

  • His point is: over/under bets don't have odds like that. As in 16:1. They're usually a +/- type of bet. You are definitely gonna make a profit; but not 16:1. 16:1 on 7.5 wins would bankrupt wherever you got the bet from. Check the ticket and tell us what the actual bet is, I'm honestly curious, cause if you did get 16:1 on the over I want to know where!

    We're not trying to be a-holes, I just don't think you completely understand the bet you made. You're definitely going to win it .. barring a massive disaster to end the season.. but you're not getting 16:1 odds on a win total bet. It might be +160, meaning for every $100 you bet you win $160. Or it might be -160, which means you have to bet $160 to win $100.

    So yes. Congrats on the winning bet, but methinks you're getting a MAX of $2600 (your $1000 back plus the $1600 if it's +160) and more than likely $1625 back, if it was -160 as I assume it probably was since Seattle was favored to win 8+ this year.

    This betting message board thread says UNDER 6.5 wins paid +155 .. so yeah..

  • Glad you are so concerned about what I am winning, when you all could have done the same thing.

    As Charlie Sheen says WINNING, and that's me. What about YOU?

    I also cashed a winning ticket on Sundays game while I was in Vegas. I put down $200 and my ticket paid $565. I guess since all you experts at guessing what winners get paid want proof?.....

    Well. kiss my ass and grow a set and make your own bets. :lol:

    When you make outlandish and uninformed claims they are sure to be rebuked. its nothing personal. We gamblers just dont like it when pretenders give us a bad name. LOL.
    Post a picture of this "$16,000 ticket". That would clear everything up.
