I know we have the NFL picks thread going, so obviously we have plenty of football fans, I was just curious if anyone does any wagering in addition. I for one have been placing "illegal" online bets for the last few years, and have actually had some success. Nothing big, I like low risk and high reward. My normal weekly wagers are $5 on a 6 team and a 10 team parlay against the spread. The payouts on the 6 way bet is around $280, and if I ever hit a 10 way it's around $4000. Best I've done is 8 out of 10, but I have hit several of the 6 team bets the last few years, and yes, these online sites do pay. I'm sure there are/were some internet poker players on here, and I've done a little bit of that, but it just gets too boring for me.
