The Betting Man: April 4th

So we have a friend who, for obvious reasons, will remain unnamed and go by the moniker The Betting Man. Seriously, the guy can't be trusted with $10, or he'll bet on which bird flies off the power line first. Anyhow, what do you do with a guy who has an addictive personality (especially if he's a die-hard Astros fan)? Make sport of it. Almost every day The Betting Man will report on his gaming endeavors - let's see how he does.

Hello, friends. It's an honor to be able to share my experiences with you. Way I see it, if you're gonna watch it, you might as well win on it. I have $1000 in a Bodog account, so all lines will come courtesy of Bodog, and we're going to see what happens.

It's April 4, and there's no game today, but tomorrow the lines for the series with the Reds will come out. I can at least catch you up on the bets I've made to this point.

I put $10 on the Astros to win the NL Central at 35/1 odds. That $10 bet could pay out $350, plus my original $10, so we'll put that on the docket.

I also put $50 on the over of 71.5 wins at -110, this could net $95.45.

Outstanding Bets
Total outstanding: $60
Total Amount Remaining: $940
