The other title I was considering for this post was “I Just Wasted $5.”
I just figured that with all four teams playing at the same time tonight, I might as well have a little bit of fun. I don’t bet on sporting events very often, and as you can see by the wager, when I do I don’t risk much. I’ve basically been living off the same $50 deposit at 5Dimes for two years now.
For those of you that can’t do the math, betting on all four of our local teams to win tonight — not cover, just win — is paying roughly 26.5-to-1. And if you’re wondering, betting against all four teams to lose is paying out at roughly 7.3-to-1 at 5Dimes.
Do with that information what you will.
