I Just placed a $1 bet...
 
On Norway to win the Olympics... if they Pull a huge upset via 1980 US Style I win $2000.

Just thought I'd share that the Olympic odd's are up, and Canada is the favorite, followed closely by Russia

I'm hoping that Peter Forsbergs distant relative Kristian Forsberg can really step it up

I don't know what site you use but on Sports Interaction they have been out for quite a few months now.

HockeyH3aven 10-01-2009 10:14 PM

$1? If that's all you have to lose then that makes sense to me.

I've also placed a $2 bet on 1+ member(s) of team Canada getting Swine Flu, the current odds there are 400/1

I remember some story where a guy put down a few bucks to have the Devil Rays win the AL, and of course they did take the AL. I forget how much but it was a good chunk of change.

You're going to win that bet, you know why?

So that means your decent, or he's horrible.I hope you don't mean the latter...

Anyways, Besides the US ( who aren't looking too good this year) I always root for the biggest longshot

PensFan101 10-01-2009 10:20 PM

Matthias Olimb and Mats Zuccarello Aasen could pull it off, you never know :yo:

I was ok I guess.. We played on the same div-1 team (tier-II) and then he went on to play in the elite league and now the SEL.. He's a pretty good player. Probably not NHL material, but I think he'll do good in Sweden and for the Norwegian national team..

Good to know, I always assumed that Norway was right behind Finland, Sweden and Russia in Europe . Mainly because it's pretty cold and icy in Norway. Guess I was wrong

This reminds me of the "near-greatest parlay bet ever".

Just for kicks I put $20 on a 15-team 3-sport parlay bet that would have net me like$18,000 or something ridiculous, and I hit on the first 13 things that day. *****es.

Bet on the Canucks which is probably why they're losing.

First off, I do not know what that means. I am familiar with the term "hedge your bets", but not so sure what it means in actual gambling parlance.

I had withdrawn all the money I had on that site, but the day of, I got a $20 bonus and that is why I just tossed it onto a random Parlay.

You and me both - on the upside, Colorado is beating San Jose, so it won't be the only game I lose on.
