Figuring The Odds, Best Not To Bet

June 9, 2016

The first time I met YES Network’s Michael Kay, when our respective bank accounts did not have the huge difference, in his favor, that has been the case for many years, he told me why he no longer bet on sports.

A tough loss taught Kay and to his credit, as far as I know he does not bet and has not done so since before telling me that story in 1984.

It is a good thing for him that he does not because he does not have a clue how to win. In fairness, who does?!!

A recent example of Kay not knowing odds is when he said the Cavaliers would be series favorites vs either the Warriors or Thunder.

I knew that would not be the case. The Warriors were roughly 11 to 5 series favorites when the series commenced.

Why bitter herbs? It is bitter to lose. Also “Pass” and “Over” are among other things, gambling terms. Please be wise if you must gamble and trust me far better not to begin doing so.
