Lack of discipline will lose you money

I just want to relay a lesson I seem to have to re-learn over and over again. Since I live in Reno NV, I like to put together parlay cards occasionally at the local sportsbook. My main focus is two or three play teasers. Thats why I call this page 'Teaser King'. But every once and a while I'll go for a long shot and play a six to eight regular side or total parlay off the board or a card. I usually play off the board because the cards usually leave off the lesser known public games or the games they consider too much of a risk. (The best overall cards to play are the William Hill cards. They usually have the most plays, best odds and higher payouts). 

 Today I missed a six teamer by one pick and another and another by two. The first loser was Clemson.  The two on the other card were Indiana and Wyoming. One of my main rules in capping is to avoid teams perceived to be weaker than the other. The other even more important rule is never to choose a play I didn't do my complete homework on.

renorunner2,

I too live in Reno and though I do all of my homework online, I find myself grabbing a parlay card and doing it while I stand in line. Big mistake. Keep pluggin along! Gotta love living here!!

masko, biggest way I lose it to add on teams at the last minute or listen to some clown with his iron-clad lock

Redstick, Or have a few beverages to cloud your judgement and listen to his 'wisdom' and end up replacing your picks with his and end up losing.
