Default "Bad Beat"

I had a nice Saturday, winning 3 Unit's on Wake Forest in what I thought was a hugely misplaced line of +8.5, 1 Unit on Wisconsin and losing 1/2 a unit on A & M on a last second score by Nebraska.

I also had 2 UFC Fights I took. I meant to post one of them, as it was a HUGE lock... so much of one, to the point that I put 5 Units on it... well I thought I did.

I first took Matt Serra +125 for one Unit (who squeezed out a split decision victory)

I then took Travis Lutter -140, for Five Units (so I thought). Lutter was facing a Canadian by the name of PAtrick Cote... a good fighter, however with little to no experience on the ground, clinch, or defending the takedown/guard pass... these all happen to be Travis Lutters best weapons, Lutter fight game being almost entirely BJJ (Brazilian Ju Jitsu) based. This price I thought was a steal, since all Lutter had to do was take him down and it'd be over. Lutter did quickly and submitted Cote within 3 minutes of the fight.

Now as you know my Units are $100. So when typing in my bet on Lutter I was thinking I hit 500 (my max bet allowed), when in reality I hit 50

When I checked my account balance I knew something was wrong right away -- I check my list of placed wagers for the week and see 50 under the win columb for Lutter..... Bye Bye $450 although still a + week for me.

I've taken 1 Unit on the Saint's +5 later today. I've faded a lot of Steeler games where they've been the fav and it's gone well.... similiar to FSU in CFB I think the Steelers are getting lines bc of what they did last year.

You are aware Joey Porter has guaranteed a victory today, right?

Based on that alone I would bump that up to at least 3 units, maybe 5.
