Favorite bet of all time

During the 2021 NBA Playoffs, fading the Utah Jazz was heavily included in Chris’ plans to cash on the dysfunctional team dynamics not always seen in the scouting report. However their first round opponent, the Dallas Mavericks, were without their All-NBA talent PG Luka Doncic for the first few games of the series. This made the series a bit more difficult to handicap. With the Mavs looking to close out the Jazz in Utah in game 6, the spread for the Mavs opened and stayed at -1 for the entirety of the day. To speed the story up, Chris bet the Mavs -1 at -102 odds to win his biggest wager ever as Bogdanovic missed a wide-open game winning shot as time expired.

Most heart-breaking bet

When sports betting, heartbreaking bets or 'bad beats' are inevitable long term. Like most handicappers that have experienced bad outcomes, not one really sticks out.
