Monday Night Football

The Bettor’s Edge.

For us, it’s never been about the winning or losing.

It’s always been about the action.

We hate to lose more than we like to win.

I received an e-mail the other day from a gentleman asking if I am a professional handicapper.

The response: No.

I am a has-been. A hack. A never would have been if not for The Fizz (RIP).

I just happened to fill a certain mostly cocaine-fueled void in a Las Vegas Era that is long gone and will never be seen again.

Last one to leave: turn out the lights.

Professional handicappers seem to be the guys that charge money for their picks. They want to sign you up for renewable packages, programs and seasons. I used to know these “professional” handicappers.

They are also the guys that don’t bet money on their own picks.

I am a bettor. A professional when I win. A degenerate when I lose.

Sports betting, sad to say, is my life. It’s a sickness.

A long time ago on WEEI’s Dale & Holley show Holley asked if I ever considered Gamblers Anonymous? Although I’m certain GA has their merits, not for me. I told him: “I’m in too deep.” He laughed but I wasn’t kidding.

The sports bettor needs to win approximately 52.38% of the time to keep his shirt.

Good luck America, we need it.
