During my Vegas trip in March for NCAA conference finals, I played four MLB season totals:
- Cards OVER 86.6
- Braves OVER 87
- Rays OVER 86
- D-Backs OVER 82
The first three cashed easily. The D-Backs kept it interesting all season, but ultimately came up a game short of a push (at 81 wins). Over all, I'm happy with the results. I'll prolly take a long weekend trip to the desert this fall and "free roll" some Mr. Cashman, a bit of Ms. Kitty and a whole lot of sweet, sweet video poker with the proceeds. After all, found money is the best money to blow like a degenerate.
My first weekend at Fanduel was successful as well. I played a total of ten "50/50" contests (where twenty players compete, and the top ten finishers double up), and cashed 8 of them (2-0 on college and 6-2 NFL). I also joined three tournaments (for $2 each) and cashed one of them for $8 (finished $178 out of 2,784). My initial $100 deposit is now $154. It could be beginner's luck. Or, maybe the average Joe betting Fanduel is a easy money. Time will tell. At the very least, it made two days straight watching football a whole lot more interesting.
