Betting Highlights
Favorite Bet of All-Time
During the 2021 MLS season, I won a two-leg parlay on Montreal and D.C. each winning away that paid something above +1500. Montreal hit first and then D.C. romped to a 3-0 win so it was a very comfortable evening.
Most Heartbreaking Bet
I was so confident in the Mexico Team total under 1.5 goals in their 2021 Gold Cup semifinal against Canada. Hector Herrera scored Mexico's second goal in the NINTH minute of second-half stoppage time in a 2-1 win. If the referee blows for full-time and the game goes to OT, the bet pays.
