Sports Betting with @bozz.sports: Trying a new platform
This past week I only placed a total of seven bets. You might think that would lessen my chances of actually winning, but I actually did pretty good all things considered. I tried out a new betting platform that @fullcoverbetting told me about which uses crypto. As you will see, I didn't have a ton of luck with that bet, but I did get a little greedy and I was betting on soccer which I really know nothing about, so that could have been part of the problem.
I've been trying to work on building up my Draft Kings account again. I think I was up to $70 or $80 at one point and it has been a steady downhill battle from there. I was at a low point of $30 when I finally won a little bit of money this past weekend.
It wasn't on the best you see above. That was a PicksWise bet I made that I was hoping would turn out a little better. As you can see, I only fell short by one part of the parlay. This was my first time betting on tennis, so I wasn't really sure what I was doing.
Since Djokovic pretty much skated through the entire Australian Open, it didn't leave a lot of wiggle room for some of the bets. In the end, it bit me in the butt.
The AFC/NFC championships in the NFL were a little kinder to me. As you can see, I picked up this parlay that was being offered in the app. While I have had better luck with PicksWise picks lately, every now and then just going with your gut works out.
That was the case here and I ended up winning $7.70 on a $1 bet. Thank you very much Kelce, Mccaffrey, and Hurts for each scoring a touchdown and handing me the win!
As you can see here, my weekend actually didn't start out too well on Fan Duel. I had a horrible NBA bet that only hit on two of the legs. It was kind of a long shot anyway, but that $17 win would have been really nice.
Then, I did a PicksWise parlay and none of the legs hit. That was kind of a crushing blow for me. I mean, that Alabama game was just a joke. They got absolutely destroyed. I don't know as though anyone saw that coming.
Meanwhile Baylor didn't cover the spread as well as the Pistons. It was pretty disheartening.
Not one to give up that easily, you can see that I placed another same game parlay on the Bengals Chiefs game. It didn't really work out for me. I guess my records is just about half and half for picks that the betting app recommends to me versus picks that I find on PicksWise.
Thankfully, PicksWise came through and as you can see, my bet on the NFL playoffs and a lone NBA basketball game paid off for me. I won $6.16 on my $1 bet and put myself in a nice place to make some more bets this weekend. Probably tonight actually.
Finally, we have the bet I placed through Sports Bet One. I ended up following the soccer bet that @fullcoverbetting also placed a bet on the other day. I followed it as closely as I could. Some of the numbers he gave didn't quite match up with what I was seeing.
I ended up losing this bet and I am not quite sure why. They don't do a very good job of telling you what hit and what didn't. Unless all of them didn't hit I guess. I don't know.
I was a bit of a fool and I bet a full 5 EOS on this parlay. I should have known better and just stuck to 1 EOS. I won't make that mistake again. I like the platform, I just wish it was a bit more intuitive. It gives me access to some of the other soccer leagues that my main platforms don't, so that is kind of cool. I can at least now follow along when FCB bets on his Belgium League stuff!
Eupen - Genk was a draw.
Union - Antwerp was an under.
Toulouse did win.
Ah, that would explain it! :) Thanks!

Sportbet.one has a support chat on the site and you can always give your feedback there, they are really responsive and will forward it to the devs. That Said, I've been using sportbet.one for quite some time now and never had problems with them. For as far as crypto sports betting goes, it's one of the site that I have used the most since what they offer generally is better than others like betfury who just use software and odds everyone else is using. Sportbet seems to have their own odds and their prices adjust based on money that come. Also they allow you to bet directly from your own wallet reducing the risk and making it more decentralized. That said, it's by no means perfect and other platforms do a better job in luring in the real 'gamblers' with better loyalty programs and bonuses. For any Crypto Sports bettor, I would say Sportbet is a great way to diversify and be able to shop for the best odds.
Yeah, it seems pretty cool. I had a win the other day that I am going to be talking about tomorrow in my post. I don't honestly remember what my beef was with them now. I'd have to go back and look at this post. I do love that I can just use my Anchor wallet and place my bets. That makes it so simple!
