Favorite bet of all-time

Not sure taking West Ham from division one in football manager to beating Barcelona in the final of the Champions League can be topped but from a betting perspective, nabbing a very much off the radar James Rodriguez at 200/1 for top scorer in the world cup 2014 sticks out. A little known Patrick Reed at 3 figs in the Humana Challenge also gave birth to the hashtag #GetGreedyWithReedy

Most heartbreaking bet

Hedging is strongly advised by Bryan in the sports betting arena to minimise variance and grow the bankroll efficiently but some near misses and bad beats at the poker tables and daily fantasy tourneys can hit pretty hard. He also advises against making "ghost" bets and spending an hour looking for the winning bet slip when it hits!
