Today I was introduced by my friends to the world of sports betting.
The only sports betting I’ve ever done is at the horse races, where I think I won about two dollars. But I’ve hung out with guys who take the whole fantasy football thing very seriously, and some who take it even further and delve into professional football betting.
It’s very common in Vegas, where they also bet on election outcomes, reality shows, you name it. But some people like to have this community experience of keeping up with the teams, the players’ stats, and various web sites, TV programs, their best friends, coworkers and anyone else who shares this vast knowledge.
As my friend, Billy, said, “it’s fun, it’s competition and it gives you another reason to watch more football, which a lot of people like to have anyway.”
So are you a high roller or do you steer clear of sports betting?
