But betting on predetermined outcomes, seems flaky to me.



To be fair, it seems flaky to me too -- but it's an available bet on Bovada's menu so who am I to say what can count and what can't





Umm the leader of the yanno...side game and stuff?

...and as the person running it I've decided to not discriminate about what you can/can't bet on. If it's eligible to be bet on these major betting sites, it's fair game. yes the WWE is predetermined but it's available on a lot of sportsbooks so apparently it's not something Vegas completely shy's away from. The Oscars are predetermined but we can bet on those too.

And even if I were to ban the WWE (I doubt we see many more WWE bets in the near future, Jay and I only bet bc it was Wrestlemania), I wouldn't nullify Jay's bet bc no one seemed to take issue with it until it cashed and he didn't break any of the rules which since day 1 has said you can bet on ANY line on Bovada

we're kind of going in circles and i feel like i'm making the same point over and over.. if you really think i'm being unfair here PM me

Nothing really that unfair. If you wanted to put some balls on the line and take a 14/1 underdog you could have. I did and now you're grumpy cause your 9k record no longer stands and I beat it with 1 single bet

That really wasnt even the point, which obviously went over your head from getting hit with a fake chair shot.

What I find funny out of this is JJEANS joins and places one bet and this it?

Don't join if your just going bet on pre-outcome shit and then disappear. Play like the rest of us, or don't join at all!

haha i think Jay's gonna play some the next few months. i'm the one who talked him into joining it. but if you scored $15,000 in one single bet and broke the record wouldnt you sit on it too? Kpro only bets 1-2 times a month and you don't seem to have a problem as long as he isnt winning

actually.. wait why am i discouraging people not to shit talk jay jeans (who has AIDS). shit talk away people! lmao

lol, you can bet on fake wrestling? No wonder Vince McMahon is so rich. Is that really a real line from a legit wagering site on scripted wrestling?

EDIT: I don't think it's unfair that jjeans cashed in at all, I find it sick that respectable oddsmakers allowed wagers on pre-determined outcomes.
