    I had my friends who were out there for March Madness place some bets for me.

    Nats over 91 (-110)
    KC under 77 (-110)
    Mets under 89 (even)
    Tribe under 93.5 (even)

    And yes I'm an Indians fan and I did bet against their win total this year.

    The season ends 10/1/17 and it will be my last night in Vegas. Hopefully I will be collecting cash from the William Hill sportsbook instead of ripping up tickets that night. Only bet $50 or $55 on each ticket depending on the juice. So nothing big.

    You're looking good so far, those first 3 appear to be locks. Here are mine, I'll be lucky to go 4-4:

    Bal o80.5
    Sea o86.5 (wtf! )
    Mia u76
    LAA u79.5
    Ari u78
    Pit u82
    Cin u69 (another wtf)
    Col u80.5 (yet another wtf)

    Re betting against your team I did the same thing with the Rangers in 2015. Made watching the games very conflicting and I haven't bet the under on any of my teams since.

    Good luck!

    Here is my list. So far, its looking very good, other than Baltimore:

    Jays under 86
    Royals under 77
    Tigers under 83
    Brewers over 70
    Cards under 84.5
    Twins over 74.5
    Baltimore under 80.5
    And a prop that Brewers +12.5 will have more wins than Tigers

    I have San Diego under 67 (-110). My friend from NY wanted the Mets under and by the time I was able to bet it, the line was under 89.5 (-135). I took a little as well to round out the ticket cost to $135.

    Good luck to all!

    Not at home right now so cannot check the ticket, but I think it was Caesars. They had a few interesting props. I also bet Bryant +.5 would have more homers than Trout. That one is looking kind of meh, but still a lot of season to go. And the ball usually flies out of Wrigley in June and July

    next time I'm out there I need to look around for some of these more "interesting" prop bets, I've never really cashed any of the normal future bets because I'm usually betting homer picks, and when you're rooting for Minnesota teams, well, we've got the worst luck in the major sports :bang:

    I did the Tigers for $100 to win the AL Championship.....but wait I didn't say AL Championship I said AL Central. The guy printed it up and booked it as AL Championship so who am I to mess with fate?

    Well hey, it is still early in the season and we are only a few games back. Plenty of time to right the ship. If I win it pays $1,200 to collect $1,300 at MGM sports book.

    Need 4 more wins from the Nats to go 2-2.

    A month ago, I was thinking I was going to go 3-1. But my Tribe has gone on 20 game (and counting) winning streak. Hopefully this streak translates into a World Series ring!

    I envy you. Out of my 8, only 1 is a lock and only 3-4 others do I have marginal hope. There were a lot of teams with lines in the 80s who will be under - Giants, Mets, Blue Jays, Rangers, Mariners, Pirates, Tigers - and a lot of 70s who will be over. Probably atypical but good to know for next year.

    Hope so. But Royals does not look good and Orioles and Cards will be close. But it is nice to have already won enough to be sure I will break even
