Yes.


So you don't make any wagers with your friends then?

What if one friend called for Team A and one for Team B? Do you call both bets in?

What's the vig on the action? Is the line identical or did it move in b/n bets?

Seems more like a logistical aggravation to track down one buddy to collect and then drive to another buddy to pay him, all for a little juice?

(I'm saying this with absolutely no thought whatsoever and no experience taking action)

No, you give them both your bookies # and that's that.

I still pay and collect through a bookie but place my bets online or call an off shore number. The bookie business has really advanced with technology, I'm not sure what the bookie pays to use the site but all they have to do is check the weekly figure and pay and collect.

No paper trail for me, I still don't trust putting down a credit card on a gambling site.

Maybe not a paper trail but a cyber trail.

Still, you have nothing to worry about.

Yes.


That's silly. Better to keep the money between you and your friend than give it to the bookie.

Yeah my guy runs a spot and employs a shady character or two. Got a good relationship with mine. Been rolling my account over since the start of the year.
