Gambler Lingo... Any gamblers here got names for this?

What do you call someone that makes a bet and then doesn't pay up?

As gamblers we have all been through having someone make a bet, and if they win are willing to collect what ever is coming to them...  But when they lose, they refuse to honor the bet...

maybe they disappear for a while, and then try to pretend like it never happened... but in the end Im trying to remember what this type of person is called in our world of gamblers....

The word "Welsh" come to mind, but I think that is kinda of derogatory against a type of people and I don't want  the "RichardA/Scal" race trolls making this their issue...  This thread is for gamblers....

Anyone know some good gambler lingo for names that we call this type of person?

Wasn't the minimum age supposed to make the NBA better?

I thought that having a 19 year old  minimum age in the NBA was supposed to make things better?

I thought it was supposed to make things better by getting rid of high school draft picks in a league where its best players (kobe, JG, lebron, and NBA champions tyson chandler and Dirk who did not go to college)

But when you see a draft like tonight and all international players and weak college draft, I think that the NBA is actually killing their product...

What use is it to force players to go to college one year and play against college competition with college rules? 

Practicing shooting from the college 3 point line perhaps... I mean isnt it said that shooting ability is something that lacks in the NBA?

and because they dont want to be there, they leave first chance they get  "ready or not"... Which actually makes the draft weaker and you dont see people committed to staying all 4 years like a Tim duncan/dwayne wade, because college is a mandate not a choice and really not constructive...

Wouldnt a young player be better served playing in the d-league or limited minutes in the NBA and practicing and working on an NBA game rather then having to go to college?

It also allows them to learn about the NBA life style rather then having to wake up take classes that they dont care about to play basketball when they should be waking up to work out, practice and condition...  Forcing a kid to take classes just to pl... [More]

4 team 13 point Teaser talk (1-0 on season, +2 units)

I have to admit that I got very lucky and watching those monday night games were torture...

When it comes to +13 points ATS the best numbers are 4.5-5.5 and 8.5-9.5...  reason being is that no matter which way you go you get decent numbers...

4.5-5.5 gives you more then 7 points on the fav and more then 17 points on the dog...  8.5-9.5 gives you a FG cushion on the fav and 21 points on the dog...

The two games that have this situation this week...  TB@BUF and CIN@GB... Both of which seem like decent picks either way...

I am also looking at SEA +14.5 as a possibility as I wonder if SF will be able to put up enough points to go beyond a 2 TD lead...

I have to admit tho that I am pretty stumped in terms of creating a 4 team 13 point teaser and will likely only play one unit if I even manage to work one out...

The other interesting idea I had was to play a 3 team 10 point teaser on MIN, GB and WAS to win SU...  This might in the end be the safest play this week on teasers...

I got some good feedback last week from teaser players and I wanted to see what you all were thinking before I try to put a teaser out there this week...

Any more ideas or suggestions?
