Bovada Payouts take about 30-40 days to get

Bovada has a policy of holding on to your winnings as long as possible. After requesting payouts they no longer send your money by Western Union or Moneygram. They instead wait about 2-3 weeks and send you a check written on a bank in the Orient. Needless to say your banker won't be to excited about that check and put a hold of 10 days on it, by the time you get your payout from Bovada it's about a 30-40 days from the time you request it. Bovada by holding on to your money gets to continue to collect interest for the majority of the time. I personally suggest finding a different sportsbook, as I'm going to do in the near future.

My Favorite Time Of Year

When my home team the Detroit Tigers are in the playoffs, this time of year for me is like heaven. Since football started my picks have been like I've had the following days sports section in my hand while I'm picking. I've gambled football for 33 years, I feel I'm in my absolute prime at picking winners. My formula for units played on each contest is working like a charm and I feel absolutely on top of my game. I also bet baseball but not nearly as successfully as football, I can hold my own in baseball but it truly is a different concept in many ways and I don't have nearly the same experience as with football wagering. I started gambling baseball seriously only about 5 years ago, for all the previous years I've gambled I either didn't wager on baseball or just did it as more or less a hobby and that never works out successfully. Gambling on sports is without doubt something you have to be all in on to be successful, I live and breath football and that's the only way I'm able to win gambling.
The baseball playoffs start today with the 1 game elimination wild card game, in my opinion Selig again makes a bad move here as a 1 game playoff for teams that fought for 162 games to get the opportunity to play is a bit ridiculous. Selig seems to miss the boat on everything he does, the funny thing with Selig is I like what he's done the implementation though is horrendous. I like the fact the All Star Game in baseball means something but giving the winning side home field in the... [More]

Tonight's Miami Vs. Boston Game 3

Well basketball fans I'm in rare form with my picks in both the  Eastern and Western Conference Final. On occasion I get a feel and I can't explain what I cognitively do to make my selections, I do look at all the stats, the lineups, and all the basic due diligence but my choices usually throw much of that out the window and I go by feel, when I'm going by feel I'm at my best prognosticating. I've been playing basically 2 units on either the game or the total whichever I like more and than taking 1 unit and parlaying the game and the total. I've hit the parlay in 3 out of 5 games that have been played so far and I've hit the main bet in the other 2 winning money on each game. Tonight my pick is the under 181 which I bet in the morning I would still take the under at 179 along with the Miami Heat +2.5. Bet it and bank it, have a good evening, enjoy.
Regards,
Jim C
